Seems like there’s a film called Princess Ka’iulani based on a ‘true story’ about a romance and possible engagement between a Hawaiian Princess and Clive Davies (see here). This is the same Clive Davies who married Edith Marion Fox, who was the daughter of Sir Francis Fox (see wiki entry) and therefor the cousin of my great great aunt Agnes Selina Fox. I found the following biography of Clive here:
DAVIES, THEOPHILUS CLIVE, sugar factor, Honolulu: born September 28, 1871, in Honolulu, Kingdom of Hawaii, son of Theophilus Harris and Mary Ellen (Cocking) Davies; married Edith Marion Fox, in Wimbledon (England), July 12, 1898; five children: Muriel, Gwendolen, Lorna, Harold, Geoffrey. Educated in St. Alban’s College (Honolulu) to 18X6, Uppingham School (England) to 1899 and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, being graduated in 1894 with degree S. B. ; Theo. H. Davies (Elder) settled in Honolulu in 1857, associated with firm of Janion, Green & Co., and later took over the business, now Theo. H. Davies & Co., Ltd. Became associated with father’s firm upon entering business career and is at present a director of that institution. Address: residences, Graidaide (Honolulu) and Hawkley Hurst (Hampshire, Eng- land): business. Kaahumanu Street (Honolulu), 2 George Street, Mansion House (London, England).
I found a wiki entry for Kaʻiulani (aka Victoria Kaʻiulani Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kawēkiu i Lunalilo Cleghorn). Through her mother Kaʻiulani was descended from High Chief Kepoʻokalani. Her father was Archibald Cleghorn, a Scottish financier from Edinburgh and the last Royal Governor of Oʻahu. Clive Davies’ father Theophilus Harris Davies was her guardian. But I only found out about this story by accident because I’d read the following press clipping in Agnes S. Fox’s scrapbook announcing her Uncle’s Funeral:
Lady Fox (Widow) [Selina Wright]
Mr F.H.W. Fox (Son)
Dr Selina Fox (Daughter)
Mr and Mrs Walter Western (Son-in-law and daughter)
Mrs Clive Davies and Miss Lorna Davies (Daughter and granddaughter)
Agnes Fox (niece)
Mrs F. Douglas Fox (wife of nephew)
Mrs C. Beresford Fox (possibly daughter-in-law)
A man that is of judgment and understanding shall sometimes hear ignorant men differ, and know well within himself that those which so differ mean one thing, and yet they themselves would never agree. And if it come so to pass in that distance of judgment which is between man and man, shall we not think that God above, that knows the heart, doth not discern that frail men in some of their contradictions intend the same thing; and accepteth of both?
