text: (177) Sha-yong-hu clan came from Yong-yu-tang, then settled at Wakyunyu-tseang, then they came to Wakching - apparently only they.
text: Pong-moi the old Ang clan - they came from Ying-yu-tang.
text: The Bala morung became more and more powerful and always gave trouble, one day a man of the Bala morung fell into a trap (for animals with panjis) on Chingtang land and died. Then the Bala morung wanted (178) to take revenge on Chingtang but the other morungs of Wakching did not allow it.
text: Then the Bala morung called Yungya men to kill a man of Aukheang - they killed really an Aukheang man in the fields.
text: Then the other morungs set fire to the Bala morung. The Bala morung people dispersed, some went to Wakching, others mixed with other morungs of Wakching.
text: Then for unexplained reasons the Ang of Wakching, Pong-yong, was dismissed (and an Ang of Chui called Long-me) (179) and Pong-yong was forced to become Ang of the remaining people of the Bala morung.
text: Pong-yong's wife was Wang-shum of Bala morung and Len-nok clan.
text: Chinkak mortgages his tribute from Shiong, Tanhai, Kongan and Chingtong beforehand.
