Kun Lung Gate Tower. Kun Lung Wai, presently known as San Wai, is one of the eleven Tang villages in Lung Yeuk Tau, Fanling. Although this village was reportedly settled by members of the Tang clan during the 14th century, the walls of San Wai were believed built in 1744 as the stone lintel above the main entrance to the village is engraved with 'Kun Lung, dated this Jiazi of the Qianlong reign'. Yi Tai Study Hall. Yi Tai Study Hall is situated at Shui Tau Village, Yuen Long. It was built by the Tang clan of Kam Tin who came to settle in this fertile plain as far back as the 11th century. According to local legends, Yi Tai Study Hall was built towards the end of Daoguang reign (1821-1850) to accommodate the two immortals, Man Cheong and Kwan Tai Tower of Ma Wat Wai. Ma Wat Wai was built by the Tang lineage during the Qianlong reign (1736-1795) of the Qing Dynasty. It is one of the renowned Five Wais (walled villages) and Six Tsuens (villages) in the area of Lung Yeuk Tau in Fanling.

Tower of Lo Wai. Lo Wai is the first built of the five renowned walled villages in Lung Yeuk Tau, Fanling established by the Tang clan whose ancestors branched out from the main Tang settlement in Kam Tin in the 13th century. The Tangs since then established eleven villages in the area, known as 'Five Wais (Walled villages) and Six Tsuens (Villages)'. Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall. Situated to the northwest at the foot of Lung Shan, Fanling, Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall is one of the largest ancestral halls in Hong Kong. Evidence suggest that the original building dates from 1525 to honour the founding ancestor, Tang Chung Ling (1302-1387) and has since then been the main ancestral hall of the Lung Yeuk Tau lineage. King Law Ka Shuk Ancestral Hall. King Law Ka Shuk was once used as a study hall, but been serving as the ancestral hall of the Tang clan in Tai Po Tau for over one hundred years. It is believed that the building was built by the thirteenth generation ancestors Tang Yuen-wan, Tang Mui-kei and Tang Nim Fung in the Ming Dynasty to commemorate their tenth generation ancestor Tang King-law.

Walled villages of Hong Kong: "Kat Hing Wai (吉慶圍) is a famous Punti walled village in Yuen Long District of Hong Kong. It often mistakenly believed to be Hakka, whose people have similar traditions. However the Punti people were from Southern China and the first to settle in Hong Kong. Kat Hing Wai's residents speak Cantonese, rather than Hakka. Popularly known as Kam Tin, from the name of the area, it is home to about 400 descendants of the Tang Clan, who built the village back in the 1600s."

邓禹 Deng Yu (2-58):

"Deng Sui (鄧綏) (AD 81 - 121), formally Empress Hexi (和熹皇后, literally "the moderate and pacifying empress") was an empress during Han Dynasty. She was Emperor He's second wife. She later, as empress dowager, served as regent for his son Emperor Shang and nephew Emperor An, and was regarded as an able and diligent administrator. She was perhaps the last effective ruler of the Eastern Han Dynasty, as the subsequent emperors and empresses dowager were largely incompetent rulers. During her regency, there were natural disasters and wars with Xiongnu and Qiang, but she was able to remedy the disasters and largely quell the wars. She was also praised for her attention to criminal justice.

Deng Sui was born in 81. Her father Deng Xun (鄧訓) was a son of Emperor Guangwu's prime minister Deng Yu. Her mother, Lady Yin, was a daughter of a cousin of Emperor Guangwu's wife Empress Yin Lihua. She was selected to be in the palace in 95, and she became a consort to Emperor He in 96. She was 15, and he was 17."

Deng Mengnu 鄧猛女 (116-150 AD),Empress of Emperor Huan of Later Han. "Daughter of Deng Xiang and his wife Xuan, whose maiden surname is unknown, the Lady Deng was selected into the harem of Emperor Huan in 153 or 154; she was at that time probably thirteen sui, the most common age for such entry, and was therefore born about 141. First appointed a Chosen Woman, lowest of the three ranks of imperial concubines, she was extremely beautiful, she attracted the attention and favours of the emperor, and she was swiftly promoted to be an Honoured Lady, highest rank below the empress."

"The Lady's father Deng Xiang was a great-nephew of the Empress-Dowager Deng. The family had been respected and powerful in Nanyang commandery, the southwest of present-day Henan, for many generations and Deng Xiang's ancestor Deng Yu was a leading supporter of the founding Emperor Guangwu of Later Han."

"In the 260s, after the Sima family had established control of the government of Wei, they planned the attack on Shu-Han. In the autumn of 263 they captured the passes into Hanzhong, and while one army held Jiang Wei in the northwest, the general Deng Ai went forward against Chengdu. In the winter, after victory in one pitched battle, he received the surrender of Liu Shan. There was a brief period of intrigue and confusion as Deng Ai was dismissed and then assassinated, while Jiang Wei and a rebel commander of Wei, Zhong Hui, sought to establish an independent position, but the plotters were killed, and in the summer of 264 Liu Shan was received into honoured exile at Luoyang."

Deng Yu. (1337-1377). "Deng Yu's Tomb lies on the western Dengfushan Hills, outside Zhonghuamen Gate, Nanjing, Jiangsu, Pr., China. It was built in 1378 (the 10th year of Emperor Zhu Hongwu of the Ming Dynasty). Born in: Hongxian County, Anhui Pr. in the Ming.

Afterwards, he was awarded the title "King of Ninghe" and the posthumous title "Wushun" by the emperor."
Deng Yu's Tomb -

邓愈 Deng Yu:

Deng Tingzhen 邓廷桢 (1775-1846). "Economic and social dilemmas raised by the opium trade prompted a number of Qing officials to memorialize the throne on this question. What ensued was a carefully reasoned examination of China's existing opium laws. Some memorialists believed that Opium should be legalized and paid for with trading goods. While China developed domestic sources for the drug to diminish reliance on imports, European traders could at least be forced to pay duty on shipments from abroad. Other memorialists advocated a "War on drugs" with strict prohibitions designed to dry up the supply of the drug and discourage its domestic marketing and use.
One advocate of legalization was Xu Naiji (1777-1839), an 1809 jinshi from Renhe County, Zhejiang, who had served as circuit intendant (daotai) at Canton. In the spring of 1836, while he was serving as a sub-director of the Court of Sacrificial Worship in Peking, Xu addressed his ideas to the throne in a memorial that remains controversial even today. In the memorial, reproduced below, he admitted the evil effects of opium but argued for a process of legalization whose end result would have been the elimination of silver outflow and the dominant foreign role in the trade. The Daoguang emperor seemed to lean toward Xu's proposal but remanded it with a terse edict to Deng Tingzhen, the governor of Guang-dong and Guangxi, for his consideration."
The First Clash with the West:
"The Imperial Commissioner responsible for leading the crackdown on opium, Lin Zexu, and the Governor of Guangdong and Guangxi, Deng Tingzhen, stayed in this temple on their inspection tour of Macau in 1839, and received Portuguese officials here."

The patriotic general of Beiyang Navy of the Qing Dynasty, Deng Shichang, died in this battle on 17 September 1894. One corrupt Chinese official had used ammunition funds for personal use. As a result, shells ran out for the some of the warships during battle such that one navy commander, Deng Shichang, resorted to ramming the enemy's ship. Deng, captain of the 2,300-ton cruiser Chih Yuan, and his crew's fate was sealed when their vessel was hit by a torpedo during the Battle of the Yellow Sea, the first full-scale confrontation between two national fleets of ironclads in modern times.

A Provincial Scholar Turns to National Revolution

During an abortive rebellion in his home town of Fuzhou in 1933 the subject of this biography changed his name to Deng Tuozhou. He is now known by the shortened version Deng Tuo. The personal name means 'open up the continent'. At the time, Deng told a friend that he thought Fujian was too restricted a place and that they ought to go into the raging storm beyond the province.

Family and Schooling

Deng Tuo was born in Fuzhou, Fujian province on the south-east coast of China. By the 1920's, when Deng Tuo was a teenager, Fuzhou was a moderately active port of some 600.000 people. The house in which Deng Tuo was born and raised still survives, It is a traditional-style complex in an extended U shaped within courtyard walls. It lies on the north-eastern lower slopes of Wushi Hill, one of the major hills and parks in the south-western corner of this hilly city.

A Private Ceremony to Mourn Deng Tuo, Wu Han, Liao Mosha and Liu Ren. Mary G. Mazur

On 17 May 1996, in a crypt of Babaoshan cemetery in Beijing, a private memorial was held by Ding Yilan to commemorate the deaths in the Cultural Revolution of her husband Deng Tuo, Liu Ren, Wu Han, and later Liao Mosha. The date was the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Cultural Revolution and the suicide death of Deng Tuo.

In September of 1961, together with Deng Tuo and Liao Mosha he started ⦣128;œNotes from the Three-family Village⦣128; in the journal of ⦣128;œFront⦣128;.

"Deng Tuo, Wu Han, Liao Mo-Sha, Three from the same family. Anti-Party, Anti-Chairman Mao. The Three Family Village Is a revisionist Black family. While speaking these lines, I was to stamp my right foot on the platform and point my finger at three of my classmates who were playing Deng, Wu, and Liao. "

"Beijing cultural boss Deng Tuo employed calligraphy to form bridges to both the conservative painter Qi Baishi and the radical politician Kang Sheng."

"Around the black and white photos and graphics in his new books, Li built up the stories of four renowned Chinese intellectuals: Liang Sicheng (1901-72), the famous Chinese architect who participated in the design of the United Nations building in New York; Lao She (1899-1966), one of the 20th century's greatest Chinese novelists and playwrights; Deng Tuo (1912-66), a prominent journalist and editor; and Huang Yongyu (1924-), a renowned Chinese painter."

"Famed historian Deng Tuo (1912-66) once said Ma created a new type of woman character for Chinese opera - shuaidan - an aged woman supreme commander."

"Deng Jiaxian, who devoted his youth to the construction of China's nuclear defense force, made great contributions to the development of China's atom and hydrogen bombs."

"As a young man, Mr. Deng studied in America. After he finished studying and returned to China, he dedicated his whole life to the strength and development of his motherland."

Deng Jiaxian's memorial:

Deng Yuzhi (Cora). "Deng⦣128;™s career spanned most of the 20th century. Serving first as a student secretary in Changhsa in the early 1920s, the national staff in Shanghai convinced her to join the industrial department in 1930. The industrial programmes she developed brought the YWCA recognition from both the Nationalists and the Communists, China's two competing political factions." 2000/China.html cached

Deng YandaDeng Yanda.邓演达 (b. 1895, Huiyang, Guangdong, China - d. Nov. 29, 1931, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China), civil governor of Hubei (1926-27). He was a regiment commander in the revolutionary-minded Guangdong army. In 1924, he was appointed chief dean of the Huangpu Military College (whose president was Chiang Kai-shek) and president of the Chaozhou-Shantou branch of that college. He also participated in the Northern Expedition, being the director of the political department of the northbound army. In 1927, Chiang, leader of the Kuomintang rightists and of the whole government, started to strike the Chinese Communist Party, despite the policy of late president Sun Yat-sen, who preferred a close relationship with both the CCP and the U.S.S.R. Chiang also persecuted KMT leftists like Deng who maintained Sun's policy. Deng was arrested on Nov. 17, 1931, in Shanghai, and subsequently executed.

The Chinese Peasants and Workers Democratic Party (CPWDP) was founded in 1930 by Mr. Deng Yanda. Among the principal founders and leaders of the Party are Huang Qixiang, Zhang Bojun, Peng Zemin, Ji Fang, Zhou Gucheng, Lu Jiaxi and Jiang Zhenghua.

"Director of the General Political Department of the Northern Expedition, a leader of the left Guomindang, and an opponent of Chiang Kai-shek. In July 1927 he resigned from the Wuhan Government in protest against its decision to expel the Communists. He was arrested and executed by Chiang Kai-shek in 1931 because of his launching of the Third Party and his activities against Chiang's Nanjing Government."

"Right after the writing of these words, he locked up Hu Hanmin, one of the founding fathers of the KMT, at Tan Shan and then ordered the execution of Deng Yanda, one of his colleagues in the steering committee of Huangpu Military School." ("Old warlords such as Li Fuying and Shi Yusan were executed and probably deserved their fates; but the punishments lashed at Deng Qi due to the big fire in Changsha and at Cheng Zerun due to the suicide of a draftee outside of Chongqing were probably too harsh, and complaints can be heard about these two cases till today.")

Deng Zihui"Deng Zihui 邓子恢 (b. Aug. 1896 d. Dec. 10, 1972) had no choice but to try to personally persuade Mao to oppose the project. He told Mao that he basically agreed with the measures for flood control. But rather than build the large dam at the Three Gate Gorge, he argued that during the First Five-Year Plan [1953-57], the government should build two reservoirs at Zhichuan and Mang hill hear Luoyang."

"Fearful of widespread peasant discontent as farmholdings were forcibly collectivized, Agriculture Minister Deng Zihui ordered a halt. An enraged Mao reviled the vice-premier as "a woman with bound feet."

"Deng was called a rightist after this, he had to make a self-criticism, and he was not elected to the Politburo as he surely would have been otherwise, but he remained a vice-premier."

Deng ZihuiApparently Deng Zihui and the Rural Work Department insisted on the original plan, and proceeded (with the endorsement of a Politburo meeting convened under Liu Shaoqi) to "contract" about twenty thousand cooperatives back to the stage of Mutual Aid teams. Infuriated by this show of resistance (and by the rumor that two hundred thousand cooperatives had been dismantled), Mao convened a meeting...

Marxists Internet Archive Photo GalleryDeng Zhongxia 邓中夏(1894-1933). "Deng, like most of the leaders of the labor movement during the mid-1920s in south China, was from an intellectual, rather than a working-class, background. His politicization during the May Fourth period was representative of a general trend toward social and political radicalism among young intellectuals in search of solutions for China's problems."

Deng Sanmu 邓散木(1898-1963). Deng was one of old Shanghai⦣128;™s most popular calligraphers and colourful eccentrics. He was admired for his bold brushwork, for his ability to make his characters seem to float on the paper and for the strength of his seal-carving. In 1958, he was branded as a right-winger and banished to the fringes of society. Deng sent this poem to a friend in 1958...He marked the occasion by signing himself 'Happy old Shit', a term he had not used since 1949.

The Origin of Chinese Surnames. According to legends, Chinese surnames originated from the Emperor Fu Xi (2852BC). He standardized all Chinese surnames and defined matrimonial relationship. Thus a proper system of population census was established.

The origin of Chinese Surnames. The Chinese have had surnames long before the period of the Three Emperors and Five Kings, that is, during the time when recognition was given only to one's mother and not one's father. Hence, the Chinese character for surname is made up of two individual characters----one meaning woman and one meaning to give birth. That is to say, the surnames of the early Chinese followed the maternal line. Before the three dynasties of Xia, Shang and Zhou (2140-256 BC), the people in China were already having surnames (Xing) and clan-names (Shi).
