Many of Vacquier's ancestors were not born in a place or village, but within the confines of a plantation,
such as Ardjasari , located 10 km southeast of Bandoeng (Preanger Regencies).
The name of the plantation can therefore be stated on the birth certificate as the place of birth.

See report about this plantation with this wonderful name.

Froland (Enorie) Vacquier was a 24-year-old overseer in this tea establishment.

Hereby a link to the site of Hedwich de Vries about living in Bandoeng, in it is

the district and the eponymous tea plantation called Tjoemboeloeit.






Sometimes the place of birth is not the city but the residence, as in the case of

Charles Vacquier , the first male Vacquier born in the Dutch East Indies in the Kedoe residence .



Also to mention:  alphabetiche list of words and meanings.

Take a look at Kina, 100 grams of seed was bought in Bolivia in 1865, here the entire kina culture on Java and Sumatra originated.
