Raymond Goh found the tomb and posted to facebook:

It was from a tip off from a tombkeeper who has seen this big tomb in Blk 3 Pauper Division for the past 50 years since he was a young boy, and has not seen anyone praying there. Now we have always been intrigued by the map of Bukit Brown showing two big tombs in that area, and we decided to follow the tip and check the tomb.

To our surprise, it was a 1862 big tomb among a row of small tombs. How can such a big tomb exists there among the pauper division? And why was there a tomb marked on the map there? the other tombs marked on the Bukit Brown map issue by NEA was that of Ong Sam Leong and his mother. Now we have two other tombs in the pauper division.

We decide to examine the tombs further.

It is a 1862 tomb, erected in the first year of the Tongzhi, the middle month of the winter season (11th month). The deceased was a Mdm Lim with a posthumous name married into the Ng family.

She has two sons:
Boon Fah (aka Boon Whatt)
Boon Heng

two daughters:
Choon Neo
Boey Neo

3 grandsons:
Hum Bong
Hum Soon
Hum Pin


According to the Law Gazette, The first Chinese law agent was Wuing Boon Whatt. He was examined as a candidate for admission to practise as a general agent in 1864 and was the first Chinese to practise law in Singapore.

From a ST notice about his estate, we learnt that his wife was Teo Cheok Neo, and his 2 sons were Hum Bong and Hum Pin.

According to Song Ong Siang, Boon Whatt has a daughter Yi Ho who was married to Tan Soon Toh (son of Tan Kim Ching), and gave birth to 5 children
Tan Boo Liat
Tan Cheow Pin
Tan Kwee Liang
Tan Kwee Swee
Tan Kwee Wah.

Yes, the Brownies has found the Great Great Great Grand Mother of Lim Su Min. Did I get the no of greats correct?

林 德𡽪 - 德𡽪 is posthumous name 德 is Teck (meaning of virtue), 𡽪 is more difficult to pronounce as it is not in dictionary, I take it as Wei, perhaps others can help to give meaning to this character
