Anne Booth
Did It Really Help to be a Japanese Colony? East Asian Economic Performance in Historical Perspective [1]
Demographic indicators are probably a more reliable guide to changes in living standards over time than wage data. We do not have long time series on, for example, infant mortality rates for all parts of East and South East Asia for the early part of the twentieth century, but we do have figures for most countries by the 1930s. It seems clear that infant mortality rates were lower in Taiwan, the Philippines and British Malaya than in Indonesia, Indochina and Burma (Table 14). The data on crude death rates (which are probably less reliable, as they are derived from registration data) tell a similar story. There can be little doubt that infant mortality rates and crude death rates fell in Taiwan over the Japanese period, and life expectancy increased (Barclay 1954: Tables 36, 37 and 39). Kimura (1993: 643) argues that there was also a decline in death rates in Korea after 1920. In the Philippines there was also some decline in both indicators over the American period (Zablan 1978: Tables 79 and 90). Banens (2000: Table 7) shows a decline in infant mortality rates among the Vietnamese population in Hanoi between 1925 and 1938, admittedly from a very high level, while in British Malaya, Vlieland (1932: 110) estimates a fall of around a third in the Straits Settlements between 1911 and 1931. No doubt in all cases, colonial governments would have attributed these declines to better access to modern health facilities, and especially in urban areas, to better provision of sanitation and clean drinking water[9].
Infant mortality rates were often higher in urban than rural areas, probably due to lack of clean water, and poor sanitation. Gooszen (1999: 192-3) cites Dutch research which found very high infant mortality of more than 400 per thousand in parts of Batavia (Jakarta) in 1917-19, which were similar to those reported by Banens (2000: 36) for Hanoi. Vlieland (1932:110) found that infant mortality rates in urban Singapore were higher than in the more rural Federated Malay States.

Jerome Nicholas Vlieland professor

The family motto.
nosce te ipsum/ ken uzelve/know thyself
Who was Jerome Nicholas Vlieland ?
He was born 27-06-1796 Rotterdam and baptised 03-07-1796.
His father was Jan Jansen Hollander, his mother Katreina Fres.
Witnesses at his birth are Georg de Wolff and Maria van den Berg.

Then there is no information about him for some years.
Until we find him again in Great Yarmouth

At marriage called Jerome Nicholas Jansen de Vlieland. Of the parish of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, bachelor an married Sarah Heath of the parish of Hemblington, (daughter of Large landowner and genter of the parish).
Sarah was the pupil of Jerome Nicholas ,They eloped but were allowed to marry,
His wife ,Sarah Heath

A hunt that started many years ago with a note discovered in the Center for Genealogy in The Hague.
And a Lady from America Betty Lebeau who was searching for an ancestor from England with a Dutch sounding name
It would turn out many years later that was correct.
In the archives of Rotterdam was a birthcertificate with his first names on it, but with a different surname.
His birthdate was correct and the names of his father and mother were also correct.
Een speurtocht die al vele jaren eerder van start ging door een briefje ontdekt bij het Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie te 's-Gravenhage.
Betty Lebeau's briefje, een dame uit de Verenigde Staten van Amerika die op zoek was naar een uit Engeland afkomstige voorvader met een Hollandse achternaam.
Dat dat klopte zou veel later blijken: uit het Rotterdams stadsarchief komt een afschrift van zijn inschrijving in het doopregister.
zijn namen zijn:Jeroen Nicolaas HOLLANDER
Een knappe kop
Dat heeft hij zeker gehad.
Van zijn hand is een grote hoeveelheid boekwerken bekend.
British Library
Op het gebied van het leren van TALEN.
Zoals dit kinderboek; Le Petit Manuel Francais; or, the First Step to the French Language Made Easy by J.N. Vlieland, published by Jarrold's Norwich, Norfolk, 1831, 190 printed pages.
Het recent herdrukte en in paperback uitgegeven ISBN-13: 978-1-4326-6808-2 Theory and Practice: Or a Progressive, Clear and Practical Course of the German Language by Jerome N. Vlieland.
Hier een bladzijde uit weer een ander boek.
In elk van de onderstaande boeken komt meer informatie voor over hem voor: Wil je alle boektitels weten die door "Jerome Nicholas Vlieland" zijn geschreven, vul dan het zoekscherm in bij British Library [rechts boven aanklikken].
Jerome travelled several times to the continent.
His son is also name Jerome Nicholas Vlieland became a vicar in several places.
Vicar in Stalisfield

He married Frances Elizabeth Samworth 
Hij was gehuwd me Frances Elizabeth Samworth, dochter van John Samworth  over wiens testament het volgende werd geschreven.
op welke afstamming dit zegel betrekking heeft is inmiddels helemaal duidelijk, maar behoort volgens de overlevering bij de familie Vlieland, evenals een herinneringsbord met de afbeelding van een ooievaar.
This seal belonged to JohnSamworth 's second wife ,She was widow of Charles Lebure from Guernsey and inherited the seal.
It belonged to the Lefevre family of Guernsey.
The vicar and his wife are buried in Stalisfield.
Zij liggen begraven "on the north side of the church and East of the path to the porch
Frances Elizabeth wife of the Rev. J. N. VLIELAND Vicar of this Parish. Died 20th August 1864 aged 38 and The Rev. Jerome Nicholas VLIELAND for 18 years Vicar of this Parish died 22nd January 1877 aged 51."
[from The Monumental Inscriptions in The Church and Churchyard of Stalisfield, Kent. Taken in September 1920 by Leland L. Duncan. Typed up by Christine Pantrey, checked by Zena Bamping]

One of the sons of Jerome Nicholas Vlieland and Sarah Samworth was Jerome Nicholas Vlieland as well.
He became a vicar.

In his honour there were some stained glass windows placed in the church of Faversham
Stalisfield Church
And then there another familymember who uses the name of Jerome Nicholas Vlieland as his alter egois his grear grandson 
Jerome Nicholas alias Charles Archibald Vlieland
Al speurend komen we een andere blog tegen met daarin het handschrift en de handtekening van " het alter ego" van de schrijver.Wednesday, 16 May 2007
The Asbestos Mask - Jerome Nicholas

This book was once owned by Kathleen Davies (August 1948). Inside there is a letter to Miss Davies from the author, who signs himself as Archie Wheeland. The endorsement in the book explains that Jerome Nicholas is 'his alter ego'.
The letter itself is interesting:
"Dear Miss Davies
Thank you very much for your efforts over the Birmingham Mail. I am very glad to have the extra copies - one I shall now be able to send to my beloved mother in law, who is the Anne of the dedication (To Another Anne whose spirits as unquenchable as my love for her) and will be thrilled to bits!
I return your copy of the book endorsed on the title page.
Yours sincerely
Archie Wheeland"
So who was he?

We know who he was !
Charles Archibald Vlieland
Wij weten wie Archie Wheeland was. Hij is een kleinzoon van Jerome Nicholas, deze Charles Archibald Vlieland
Hij was Colonial Administrator, geboren in 1890, overleden in 1974. Woonde in Alton, Hampshire, England. Hij was de vader van Margaret Frances Morgan Vlieland die overleed 19-03-1969. Zij huwde 12-11-1938 met Brigadier Edward John Clervaux Chaytor.
Completeing a Stewardship describes the process of British disengagement from Malaya and Singapore during the era of Asian nationalism. Heussler adds to previous studies of decolonization and disengagement a new and important perspective: the views and daily work of the members of the Malayan Civil Service who were at the center of affairs until the end of British rule. The book concentrates on the people and events that influenced administrative preparations for independence. The importance of Completing A Stewardship lies in its attention to the British management of preparations for self-government. By combining official records with diaries, letters, personal papers, and interviews with many important participants, Heussler offers a full and balanced view of the end of the British Empire in Southeast Asia.

Charles James Vlieland
Opnieuw een bericht gevonden bij het Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie(CBG). Al in 1905 schrijft Charles James Vlieland of het CBG hem informatie kan verstrekken over zijn Nederlandse verwanten.
Hij komt er niet verder mee. Bijna honderd jaar later roept de geschiedenis om een oplossing. Dus speur mee en vindt de aansluiting. Zijn grootvader Jerome Nicholas hebben we al teruggevonden in Rotterdam. Jan Jansz Hollander zijn de namen van zijn vader. Maar waar en wanneer nu de familienaam Vlieland in het spel komt is en blijft een raadsel. We speuren hierzelf al 20 jaar naar en hebben nog altijd geen bevredigend antwoord ontdekt. Kom met uw adviezen mail ze naar ons toe! Help mee om de "VLIELAND CODE" te kraken.
Vanuit de UK is er veel materiaal verzameld. Ook uit Nederland zijn er uittreksels uit doopregisters. Er is al veel materiaal verzameld. We zullen dat bij gelegenheid hier publiceren. Maar dat heeft geen oplossing voor de CODE gebracht.
Denk mee. Laat ons gezamenlijk de oplossing doen vinden.
