Hi Al, Watt could be Wat as in Wat Yuan, the one we commemorate every year with Dragon boat races.
: Since you have provided no information about your ancestor's background I would venture to guess that your Chinese surname is Lam (Cantonese) or Lin (Mandarin) which means forest. Watt(?) appears to be an Anglicized version of his personal name.
: : Hi I was just wondering where the name "Lam-Watt" originated?
