The Reign of Cing Dynasty – Jhuluo County

      In the 23rd year of Emperor Kanhsi (1684), there were 1 state and 3 counties: Taiwan State, Taiwan County, Jhuluo County and Fomgshan County. The administrative region of Chiayi County today was under the rule of Jhuluo County, which governed 4 boroughs and 34 settlements. Within the territory of Chiayi County today, there was no borough but the following settlements: Tamao Settlement, Alishan Settlement and Cilengan Settlement – all 3 had been there since the Dutch reign. Tajufe Settlement (or Taguife Settlement) was added then.
      Around the 33rd year of Emperor Kanhsi (1694), Jhuluo County governed 4 boroughs, 14 villages and 40 settlements. Within the territory of Chiayi County today, there were 7 villages accounting for half of the 14 villages of Jhuluo County then.
      Among the villages, Guife Village and Nanshi Village (or Nanshijhu) had been around since the Jheng’s Era. There were 5 new villages: Lutzetsao Village, Taciutian Village, Guitzegang Village, Kanglang Village (Putze City today) and Tamao Village (Minhsiung Township today). The settlements remained unchanged.

Tushitze Village is supposed to be the “Tushitze” of the Jheng’s Era; the original “Kanglang Village” was divided into the greater and smaller Kanglang Villages.
      In addition to the existing settlements within the territory of Chiayi County today, Gantzewu Settlement (subjected by the Dutch rulers during the Dutch reign), Tafang Settlement, Lutze Settlement, Zaoluopo Settlement, Lumachan Settlement (Luman Village of Jhuci Township today).

During the year of Emperor Yungheng (1731), Jhuluo County associate mayor was appointed to “station in Bengang to oversee local administration and examine the ships.”
      In the first year of Emperor Yungheng (1723), the area north of Huwei Stream was severed for establishment of Changhua County and Tamshui Ting (administrative district).
