During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, Jiande was the capital of Yanzhou Prefecture (fu). On account of this, Jiande was often referred to as Yanzhou Fu (严州府). A transcription commonly seen in both French and English writing of the time was Yen-tcheou-fou, derived from French missionary writing.[1][2][3]
