Amoy Street, initially called “Amoi Street” in Coleman’s 1836 Map of Singapore, was developed in the 1830s as part of the 1822 Raffles’ Town Plan for Chinatown. The name Amoy is the European term for Xiamen, a maritime port in Fujian Province, China from where many Hokkien immigrants left to settle in Singapore.
Located in close proximity to the shore in the past, Amoy Street had businesses that catered to the sailors and the sea trade. Cui Ying School, commonly known as “Chinese Free School”, was established on this street in 1854. Hence, the street was also known as Free School Street or gi-oh khau (entrance of the free school). In 1886, Anglo-Chinese School was established in a small shophouse in Amoy Street and began providing lessons in English and Chinese to 13 children of Chinese merchants.
