The early Chinese settlement in Hong Kong was mainly around the New Territories area. Groups from the same hometown in China formed villages. The 5 Great Clans of the New Territories are the Tang, Man, Hau, Pang and Liu clans. Over time, many clans are formed and live in villages. Some villages developed into walled villages to protect against attacks from other clans or pirates and bandits. The villages typical built their own own temples, ancestral halls and schools.
