In Reply to: Surname "Tee" posted by Chai Hong Tee on October 10, 2001 at 06:54:55:
According to your JPEG image, your surname is Zheng in Mandarin, Tay in Hokkien and Cheng in Cantonese. Tee is another version and so is Teh.
: does anyone know about the origins and history of the surname "tee". in what area of China is it from? is there any Royal relation?
: i can't seen to find any information about it. it it appears not to be common in Australia. my father immigrated to australia from malaysia, his family before that immigrated to malaysia from china.
: "Tee" is possibly a hokkien version of Chen or Chan, but i'm not 100% sure.
: any comments or suggestions appreciated. feel free to email me at ChaiT@bigpond.com
