History of San Tin

San Tin meaning 'new field', is in the extreme Northwest fringe of the New Territories, Enclosing and area of 31 sq. km. It join Kam Tin in the South China in the North and Sheung Shui in the East, while facing Deep Bay and Pear River Estuary in the West.

According to 1996 population statistic San Tin had approximately 3080 inhabitants, 70% belong to the Man family who until recently have reserved the farmland for their own use. Since then, much of the clan's land has been sold or rented out when the younger Mans emigrated to England and Holland. San Tin prospers from remittances from overseas.

It is said Man Tin-shui(文天瑞), a clansmen of Man Tin-cheung(文天祥) a famous general of the Southern Sung Dynasty migrated all the way from Sze-chuan(四川) to Kiang-si and Hui-chou in kuang-tung(廣東), then to Pao-an(宝安). In 1367, some of his descendants moved from Pao-an to Lo Fu Han is now known as (Tuen Mun 屯門). This is why an ancestral tomb of the Man's Clan is found in Castle Peak (青山). As Tuen Mun was threatened by bandits, the Man's Clan left Tuen Mun for a safer place.

In 1429, Man Sai-Ko(文世歌), a 7th generation descendant of Man Tin-shui(文天瑞) settled in San Tin, thus becoming the founding ancestor of the Man's in the New Territories. The Man's Clan have lived in San Tin for over 582 years. They worked the land vigorously and built schools, creating a good place for their descendants. The salty, swampy soil was utilized for growing brackish rice while the rest of the area was ideal for keeping poultry. As time goes by, many older generation of Man's return to their roots and retire back to San Tin from Europe.     [ Keith 裕基]


Dai Fu Tai

Was built in the 1865 during the Qing ( 清 )dynasty by Man Chung-Luen (文頌鑾) as a residence for the posterity of Man Tin-Sui (文天瑞). This is a fine example of dwellings built for the public figures of the scholar gentry class.

The mansion itself is situated within a large courtyard surrounded by a brick wall. If observed carefully you will discover that the mansion’s layout is not symmetrical and some of the decorative detail has a hint of the western influence.

Most of Dai Fu Tai’s character can be found in its wooden carving of flowers, stained glass windows and Shek-wan (石 灣) ceramic decorations. The doors within the mansion has detailed western “Rococo” style carving often compared with those used during 18thcentury France. Located in the main lounge are two wooden carvings in both Han( 漢 ) and Mun Qing( 滿 ) script , which were gifts from the Emperor Guang- Xu (光緒) in 1875. Another distinct feature of the mansion is the circular “Lunar” door that leads from the hall to the kitchen. On the upper floor , the corridors have cruciform decorative patterns which were rare in Chinese building , although common in the West. The addition of a second floor was often seen as a symbol of wealth. This fusion of the western and eastern style were uncommon in the New Territories region of Hong Kong, however, was a feature found in many buildings of the Guangzhou( 廣 州) and Xi Guan (西 關) regions of China. [Keith]   ( Please visit Dai Fu Tai photo album )
