  5. Salam. Saya juga dari grup Heritage Studies Perak 2010 dgn Cik Filzah. Rasanye bile agaknye pihak penulis blog hendak paparkan kandungan buku ini? Saya amat perlukan maklumat tersebut sebab membuat kajian berkaitan dgn pembesar Seri Adika Raja, iaitu pembesar Hulu Perak. Kami bercadang hendak publish dlm bulan 6 ini. Hope your cooperation and favour in making success of our project. TQVM

    • Salam Hazique. Thank you for your keen interest in the contents of this rare book.

      At the moment, we don’t have a timescale on when the posts summarising the book’s content will be published online on SembangKuala. Whilst all of us edit SembangKuala, we are only doing this part-time (yes, we have day jobs😀 ) as enthusiasts of the history of Perak.

      I appreciate you and your coursemates have a deadline, but I’m afraid work on the posts that appear in this website will only be published when sufficient opportunity/time arises. The best we can say is that the posts relevant to the history of Hulu Perak will be published in due course, hopefully in the near future.

      Wassalam.

  6. very well then🙂 since my findings are not deep and strong enough, I do have some questions, of which related to Meor Samsudin, former OBJ of Hulu Perak. perhaps you could have answers for these questions…
    b4 dat, fyi, I am doing a study on house of En. Meor Ahmad, son of Meor Samsudin. his house is adjacent to Ubudiah mosque. due to lack of documentations, its barely hard to find the detail info on former owner of the house
    1)is it possible for a Sultan awarded a land to dignitaries, due to their contributions towards the Sultan.
    2)is the chief clerk is considered as dignitaries, since En. Meor claimed the house belonged to a chief clerk named En. Ahmad Tun, during the reign of Sultan Yusuf
    3) i was informed that the land lot of En.Meor’s house (lot 1961)belonged to several royal family members. perhaps is there any stories or significant relationship between them (En. Tun, royal families, and Sultan himself)

    since this coursework is due on middle of June, your assistance is very much appreciated, if you could find some answers regarding above questions.
    InsyaAllah, in the end of June, we will be exhibited our work at our KAED gallery in IIUM Gombak campus.You are welcome to pay a visit to the event. TQ

    • Salam. To the best of our knowledge, the answer to your specific questions are as follows:
      1. Yes. Long Jaafar was a distinctive example. He was given Larut by Almarhum Sultan Jaafar!
      2. No. The house may belong to the chief clerk but not the land. In those days, it is not unusual to build a house on land that belongs to others, in this case the Sultan’s tanah wakaf, but with their consent.
      3. As per answer given in (2) above.
      Hope this helps. Wassalam.

    Maybe a bit late for me to chip-in. About the Hulu Perak Dalam Sejarah, there is a copy at Arkib Negara KL at 1st Floor. Masuk Dewan Research, dekat dgn exit ada spiral staircase, naik tangga tu. Lane ke dua, belah kanan. (hopefully dia tak tukar tempat lah coz buku terletak bersama subjects related to Perak)

    About the name Ahmad Tun in Bukit Chandan, the only Tun that I know who lived in Bukit Chandan during the reign of Almarhum Sultan Iskandar in the 1930s is Tun Ismail Bin Daud. Maybe your Ahmad Tun is the son of this Tun Ismail because in those days, names were recorded ‘secara ikut suka hati polis!’. The best example is the present Toh Seri Maharaja Lela – Dato’ Tun Hamzah Bin Tun Abdul Raffar. In his earlier papers (registration to Clifford school for sure because he was my grandmother’s classmate) his name was recorded as Hamzah Bin Tun. In actual fact his real name is Tun Hamzah Bin Tun Abdul Raffar. So maybe you can search the name Tun Ismail Bin Daud for the Ahmad Tun property.

    • TQ for the info. I’ll try search the books. about the fact of En. Ahmad Tun I mentioned,there was slight error. he was served during the reign of Sultan Iskandar and Sultan Abdul Aziz (1918-1948), not Sultan Yusuf. and you were right about that🙂
      About Tun Ismail Bin Daud, what was his post then? and his title? perhaps do you know anyone who I can contacted to or sources to refer?
      Last but not least, how can I contact you?
      this is my email : the_seutor@yahoo.com.my

      • Dear Hazique,

        Further investigation into my genealogical database shows that Tun Ismail Bin Daud is married to Puteri Rahmah Binti Megat Ahmad. According to the MS40333(2) SOAS, London, this Megat Ahmad was ‘kerani Raja Muda Idris’. This Raja Muda Idris is none other than Almarhum Sultan Idris I. We know that he became Raja Muda between 1886-1887.

        Most probably, the house was originally Megat Ahmad’s property. Then it was passed on to Puteri Rahmah. Assuming that your Ahmad Tun is the son of Tun Ismail, then most probably Ahmad Tun inherited the property from his mother!

        About the Megat Ahmad in question, one of his sons – the late Hj Megat Abdullah had a house in Bukit Chandan (now a madrasah / PAS Markaz). I know this Megat Abdullah had a daughter named Puteri Norhana – living in Bukit Chandan too but unfortunately, I don’t have her contact number. Her granddaughter is on facebook though!

        Alternatively, you can try to visit the only surviving child of Megat Ahmad in Kota Lama Kiri (in front of the Rumah Anak Yatim Sultan Abdul Aziz). Her name is Puteri Aishah – the mother of Dato’ Ismail Shahudin (former Maybank boss and presently Perak’s Dewan Negara member).

  9. Salam Moderator Sembangkuala

    Patik telah berkesempatan meminjam buku “Hulu Perak Dalam Sejarah” daripada saudara 3 pupu patik (YM Raja Shah Riman bin Raja Yusof) yang pernah berkhidmat dengan Pejabat DYMM Sultan Perak.

    Alhamdulillah, patik baru sahaja selesai membaca buku tersebut. Isi kandungan buku tersebut memang menarik dan banyak sekali maklumat berkenaan Hulu Perak telah diceritakan oleh YM Tok Muda Raja Razman bin Raja Abdul Hamid serta rakan-rakannya dengan agak terperinci. Walau bagaimanapun pada muka surat terakhir (hlm. 95 dan juga pada kulit belakang buku tersebut telah terkoyak.

    Justeru, patik mohon jasa baik pihak moderator Sembangkuala berkongsi maklumat tentang “Keterangan Berkenaan Dengan Nama Jalan2 Yang Baharu” untuk rujukan patik.

    Segala kerjasama daripada pihak engku-engku (moderator) amatlah patik hargai.

    Terima kasih
