Chapter Summary

This chapter looks into the lives of some Chinese mestizos. It begins with a historical background of Chinese mestizo history before relating the lives of these Chinese mestizos. One part looks specifically into the lives of three Chinese mestizos who belonged to the "first generation," i.e., their fathers were "Chinese" while their mothers were either "Chinese mestizas" or "indias". Another part describes how the practices of some Chinese mestizas provide us not only with more information about themselves, but also with more food for thought on "Chinese mestizo" identity. Various examples of commercial and socio-cultural practices of first-generation Chinese mestizos belonging to Chinese merchant families and Chinese mestizas married to Chinese merchants are presented.

Keywords: Chinese merchant families; Chinese mestizas; Chinese Mestizos; Manila
