Researching Mohd Amin Pasar Chow Kit

Mohd Amin of Kg Baharu, Kuala Lumpur
Selangor, Federated Malay States, British Malaya

Kampong Baru, KL

Mohd Amin was the first man who opened Kg Baru in Kuala Lumpur. He was a Javanese Muslim.

His residence was at 1 Jalan Stony, Kampong Baharu, Kuala Lumpur.

His house was across the padang from the Sultan Sulaiman Club.

The Sultan Sulaiman Club was built in 1909, and renovated in 1931, and then much later by Jafri Merican Architects and Associates.

Mohd Amin Pasar Chow Kit died in 1936

His daughter is my Nenek Inchek or Aishah bt Mohd Amin.

What is his full name?

His fullname was supplied by Siti Aishah Mohd Ali (Kedah)
Mohd. Amin bin Haji Hassan - 514 results in NewspaperSG

This "bin Haji Hassan" surname was published in G. M. Gullick's book (a History of Kuala Lumpur) in a footnote, but the person turned out to be a draughtsman or architect, or similar, not someone related to Pasar Kuala Lumpur or Pasar Chow Kit.

There was a Mohd Amin bin Mahmud present at a gathering in the 1930s at the Sultan Sulaiman Club in Kg Baharu, which was close to his home - across the padang. He was at a gathering with Dr Che Lah bin Mohd Joonos and Dr Abdul Ghani bin Mohammad, both doctors graduated from the King Edward VII College of Medicine in Singapore in March 1930, and were from Penang, but were serving in Selangor.

Dr Che Lah bin Md Joonos later took Mohd Amin's daughter, Aishah bt Mohd Amin, for Hajj in 1962/1963.
