Lee Family Genealogy 






   



JIA PU (ZU PU) 家譜 [ 族譜 ] - LEE's Genealogical Record

In the history of the Chinese people, there are three important elements that are significant.  They are China's history, the local gazette and a clan's genealogy.  Amongst these three elements, Genealogy has the longest history and is the most influential.

Jia Pu
家譜 (translated as genealogy record), also known as Zu Pu 族譜, is a record of a clan's history and lineage.  It documents the origins of the surname, the migration patterns of the clan, the family lineage, the ancestral biography, the story of the locality, etc.

The written "Jia Pu" contains entries about the migrations of the people and social evolution.  It tracks the growth of the clan members by recording in detail of their political, military and academic achievements.  It also eulogizes the clan's ancestors and encourages the future generation to do worthy causes to maintain the good name of the clan.

A "Jia Pu" usually begins with the primogenitor that first settled or moved to a place and started his family there, and should end with the contemporary generation the draws up the genealogy.  The intermediate ancestors are to be enumerated in between.  The primogenitor's sons and descendents compose the first six generations and are tabulated on one form.  The primogenitor's first-borne son and subsequent first-borne grandsons are listed vertically downwards on the right, while the brothers of the first-borne are listed laterally on the left.  Descriptions of each generation are confined in relatively narrow, horizontal divisions of the form.  These spaces contain information such as the ancestor's name and aliases, date of birth and death and official rank.  The proceeding generations are recorded in a similar manner.

"Jia Pu" usually does not have prominent records of the women in the family.  This is because in Chinese families greater emphasis is placed on the sons who will carry on the family name.  When daughters marry, they are considered a part of their husband's family.  Although their names are mentioned in both their family and in-law's Jia Pu, their significance are usually marginalized since they are unlikely to extend the family's lineage.

Credit must be given to my cousin Lee Zheng Li 
[ 李振黎 ] (16th generation) who spent years of effort and hard work in gathering information on the Lee's Genealogical history tracing back to as early as 3000 b.c. and completed the task in the late 80s.  The Lee's Genealogical Records have now been published in 6 volumes, courtesy of my brother Lee Shou Dong [ 李壽東 ], distributed to all family members.  From now on, it will be our or next generation's responsibility to carry on the task of updating the family tree.
 




李氏家譜 [ 族譜 ]



姓氏,族譜,是中國悠久歷史文化的一部分。我們每個人都有一個姓,它起源於什 麼時候?族譜上最早的祖先是誰?

中華民族自古就有編修族譜的傳統,而且把譜牒提到很高的地位,認為“家族之有譜牒,猶如國家有正史,州縣有 方志”。因此又有“30年不修譜,是為大不孝”的提法。早在遠古三皇五帝時代,各個部族就有專人記錄本部族 傳遞世系。到夏商周三代時,國家還設有史官,專門記錄王室以及各貴族的世系,並匯集成書,如周代的《世 本》,就是一部各姓世系總譜。魏晉時期,家族修譜之風盛興,於是在皇室和貴族世譜之外,又湧現了大批各姓的 宗譜和各家族的家譜。此後數千年來,修譜之風在中國長盛不衰。

族譜的內容,大致有以下幾個方面:目錄、譜序、譜例、姓氏源流、先祖考辨、先祖圖像、像讚、世系表、恩榮、 人物傳記、墳墓圖、族產、祠堂圖、五服圖、祭祀圖、藝文著述、家規族約、宗族禮儀、契約文書、書院義塾、後 跋、領譜字號、雜錄等等。當然,各家各種族譜的內容有詳有略,並非每種族譜都有上述內容。

一般來說,大多數族譜都是依照血緣為紐帶,所記載的是同一共同祖先下的一支或數個支系家族的歷史。但清代以 後,特別是現代的族譜,則多有按地域來編纂的,即以一個地域為限,記載在該地域內所有同屬於一姓的眾多家 族。
中國人對譜牒非常重視,舊時的家規族約中往往有對族譜保存的有關規定。但相對來說,古代人要比現代人重視譜 牒,南方人要比北方人重視譜牒,小姓要比大姓更重視譜牒,海外的華人要比國內的人更重視譜牒。

中國人的譜牒,目前有相當一部分收藏在國內各公共圖書館、檔案館、博物館,但更大的部分收藏在民間,此外也 有一部分由海外的圖書館和譜牒研究機構收藏。

我們要在這裡向我堂兄弟李振黎先生致謝,他個人花了多年的時間整理 和編輯錦江李氏家譜.更要謝謝我五哥李壽東先生把它們印刷了成六大冊本,分發給各兄弟姐妹們。










    
莆田錦江李 氏淵源

白塘綿世 澤   西隴衍儒宗
唐安王世裔   宋制幹名家

李氏有乘,肇至唐興,溯自高陽氏裔孫皋陶庭堅為有虞士師,其後裔嗣為理官,乃以理為氏。至殷末庭堅之玄孫利貞,因父徵直諫紂王獲罪,與母避居伊侯之墟,食木子[ 郁李 ],得全生命,遂改爲李,此得姓之肇也。

周有柱下史官耳公字伯陽,以道高德厚,宣聖孔子,適周問 禮,歎服其猶龍也。其裔 孫崇公,仕秦昭襄王官司徒,出為隴西令,因家隴上,為隴西初派之祖,至孫信公字友常, 佐秦統一寰宇,封功隴西侯,此隴西得名之始。

唐 高祖李淵公字淑德,生有皇子二十二,其第二十皇子元祥公字仲瑞,封江國安王,安王次子皎公 字月池,封武陽郡王,任荊南西路大總管。桓王六子聚公子春芳,襲嗣郡王,任監門衛將軍,因遭武周亂,被流放嶺南,其子萬康公 字安世,幼年避難溫陵淪落在閩,為閩南初祖。至宋距安王十三世伯玉公字韞石,號寓軒, 由泉州南安遷興化游洋,旋徙莆田孝義里白塘洋尾,是為入莆初祖。

伯玉公五傳至富公字子誠,號澹軒,是母篤孝,樂善好施,在郡境造橋建亭以利行人,築海堤 以障民業,修郡庠以育人才,捨地興梅寺,捐資累 鉅萬,以祈母永年,母果享壽九十有八嵗,為施予之報。建炎初,粘罕金兵犯境,公以布衣募義 兵三千,率師衛國,隸韓世忠麾下,充承信郎宣慰使,宋相李網聞富才略,奏授殿前統制司制幹 官,因上恢復長策杵秦檜,遂辭辟奉母,菽水承歡,事跡載在郡志,列爲忠孝名臣。

積中公裔孫世先公距安王二十五,遷莆田井頭,為玉井房初祖,至明肇器公徙居 江口錦城閣觀音亭邊,為錦江李社初祖。八傳至秀峰公生三子,長仕霖,次子仕翼,三仕 丹,繁衍傳流,發展為三房頭,於今子孫昌盛,科甲連輝。追本溯源,知所來歷,天潢衍派,玉井流香,隴西家聲大,錦江世澤長。

“Lee” 李 is the second most surname in China after surname "Huang" 黃.  From the Lee's Jia-Pu 家譜 (Ju-Pu), the LEE 李 surname can be traced back to ancient Chinese history as early as 2000BC.  It originated from the title Dali 大理 held by Gao Yao 臯陶, a legendary minister of the Xia Dynasty 夏朝 , and was originally written with the different character, 理。 Subsequent generations adopted it as surname and changed it officially to 李。

LaoZi 老子 (Li Er 李耳), the founder of Taoism 道教 (around 600BC), was the first historical person known to have the surname and is regarded as the founding ancestor of the surname.

As the Surname of the emperors of the Tang Dynasty, “Lee” was granted to or adopted by numerous people during the period, and "Lee" 李 became one of the most common Chinese surnames.

The great Grandson Lee wan Kang 李萬康 of Tang Dynasty Emperor Lee Yuan 李淵,fled to Fujian 福建 between year 690-705 (due to a brief interruption of Tang Dynasty when Empress Wu-ZeTian 武則天 siezed the throne and proclaimed 2nd Zhou Dynasty 武周皇朝),became the 1st generation of the Lees in Fujian 福建 (閩南初祖).

After many generations, Lee Zhao Qi 李肇器, who moved to Jiang Kou District 江口鎮 became the 1st Lee generation of our hometown Jin Jiang 錦江 (
錦江李社初祖)。  From then onwards, my Great Grand father, Lee Yang Hui 李揚輝 (13th Generation), was a civil official 奉政大夫 (fifth rank 五品官) during the Qing Dynasty (清朝)。 His sixth son, Lee Jian Bin 李建賓 (14th Generation), is my Grandfather and my Grandmother is Chen Pu De 陳普德。 Both their photos are shown below:

Can't say about 17th Generations, may be just a few.
李氏第十七代可能只有少數會講咯!
