  • Sia (Chinese: 舍; pinyin: Shè; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Sià) was a hereditary title of Chinese origin in colonial Indonesia, borne by the descendants of high-ranking Chinese bureaucrats in the Dutch colonial government (see: Kapitan Cina). Many title holders were eventually appointed to bureaucratic posts themselves by the colonial authorities. In the later colonial period, it became fashionable among western-educated title holders to refrain from using the title, which was seen as an old-fashioned anachronism.Prominent Sias include:Han Chan Piet, Majoor der Chinezen (1759 – 1827): government official and landlordHan Kik Ko, Majoor der Chinezen, Regent of Probolinggo (1766 – 1813): government official and landlordTan Eng Goan, 1st Majoor der Chinezen of Batavia (1802 - 1872)Oey Tamba Sia (1827 - 1856): notorious Batavia playboyPhoa Keng Hek Sia (1857 - 1937): social reformer and philanthropistO.
