Thankyou, at least now I know that there is a place called Amoy which is a starting point. And will try for the chinese meaning of the name.
Can't help you with Tong because it may not necessarily be a real surname. Probably the personal name of Willam. However, there is a surname called Tong. You need a complete Chinese name to reveal the surname. The place is Amoy (local dialect)in Fujian Province, now normally known as Xiamen.
