Syuejia Township
 
 

What you must know

 Surroundings
Syuejia Township is located in the northwestern part of Tainan County. To its east is the town of Siaying, and to the northeast it borders on Yanshuei Township. To the south is Jiali Township, and it borders on Madou Township on the southeast. In the southwest, it is separated from the town of Jiangjyun by Jiangjyun Stream. To the west, there is the town of Beimen, and in the north, separated from it by Bajhang Stream, the town of Yijhu in Chiayi County. The countryside in this area is flat and open. However, due to its proximity to the sea, the soil has a high salt content. It is traversed by Bajhang Stream, Jishuei Stream and Jiangjyun Stream. Because it lies along the lower reaches of the Jiianan Canal, Syuejia receives too much water for it to drain away easily, so there are often floods.
 History
In ancient times, Syuejia was inhabited by the Syraya Tribe of the Pingpu. In the fifteenth year of yongli (1661), King Yanping Jun, Zheng Chenggong of the Ming Dynasty, brought his troops there to expel the Dutch. While in occupation of Taiwan, he stationed troops here and encouraged the Syraya to develop wastelands for farming. Many people came with Zheng Chenggong from Fujian province. Their family names included Li, Chen, Xie, Zhuang, Guo, Lai, Wu, Wang, Lin, Cai, Hou, Dai, and Su. They gradually moved further into the uncultivated lands, places like Dawan, Tougang, Hongqie, Sinfang, Dingzhou, and Jhongjhou. As the years passed, the population increased and formed communities. Because of the later increase in immigration, the Syraya Tribe moved further into the mountains, and Syuejia became part of the area that Chinese people had settled. By the first year of the Guangxu Emperor (1875), there were 2 prefectures in Taiwan, Taiwan and Taipei. Taiwan Prefecture included Taiwan County and Jiayi County, and Syuejia was a part of Jiayi. In the 14th year of the Guangxu Emperor (1888), Taiwan Prefecture set up Tainan Prefecture and Taidong Zhixia Province. Syuejia remained in Jiayi County as a part of Tainan Prefecture.
