Full list of Towns & Villages in Teo Ann county (circa 1958) 潮安縣都村列表

Teo Ann (variant: Teo-an, Teoann) (潮安, in Mandarin: Chao'an), known as Hai Yor (海陽) before 1914, is the oldest of the Teochew region's eight historical counties. It was formed under the Eastern Jin dynasty in 331. The seat of the newly-created Ngee Ann Commandery (義安郡) - forerunner of Teochew Prefecture, was established here in 413. This urban centre became the Teochew prefectural capital (潮州府城), or better known today as the Teochew (Chaozhou) ancient city (潮州古城).

Teo Ann was economically important as it lies in the heart of the basin of the region's main waterway Hang-kang  (韓江), while Teochew prefectural capital was for centuries the most influential political, commercial and cultural hub of the whole part of eastern Guangdong. It is commonly denoted as "海邑" on the gravestones of the overseas Teochews with ancestry from here.
