I am trying to research my family's Chinese origins. My grandfather's birth certificate of 1866 in Australia shows his father's name as John Jui Dan - born in Amoy, China. I assume that some of the name is not original and none of the spelling may be corrent. If we ignore the John, is the surname likely to be a variation of Jui - say Zhu or Zhui, or Dan? We do not know any details of why he came to Australia, but was probably one of the early Chinese arrivals since he was working at a pastoral property in southern NSW in 1860 when he married an Irish immigrant.
