Although the Chinese have migrated into the land of Thailand for a long time. Evidence from historical records of China can be traced back to the Sukhothai era. But the immigration of Chinese people has increased in the late Ayutthaya and early Rattanakosin period. And the Chinese people in this era largely came from Fujian province. (福建) or Hokkien. Immigrants in the land of Thailand is different from the early Rattanakosin era, namely the Chinese people in the Sri Ayuttaya mainly came to trade with Brig. Not because escape poverty. Famine in the same period. But this group of Chinese people who have both a wealth and knowledge. So there is quite a bit to offer to serve in the palace. And served in various positions. Most of which will take care of the taxation concessions. Such as mining (tin) storage nests so as to grant a monopoly. (Come to an end when the British forced the Bowring Treaty), thus creating the wealth of the Chinese people in this group today. And another was raw with the service until I was promoted to various city districts.
