A great source for reference in retracing the Tan / Chan / Chen surname. We are fortunate that the Tan / Chan / Chen surname is one of the largest surnames in China. So there is a lot of research in its collective origin, history, and current digression into Greater China and into Southeast Asia and Beyond.

It touches on some historical information about the origin of the clan name, the State of Chen (陳國), Yingchuan Hall (穎川堂), the Chen Dynasty (陳朝), the southward exodus from the homeland in Henan Province (河南省) and later settlements in southern Guangdong Province (廣東省). It should be remembered that the majority of the present-day descendants of the Chinese immigrants who went overseas originated from Guangdong Province (廣東省) mainly from the Pearl River Delta Region (珠江三角洲) not far from Hong Kong (香港), and also from southern Fujian Province (福建省), mainly from the Xiamen (Amoy) (夏門) area.

So let's talk about the origin of the name. :)
