Garling

GARLING

Entah sekarang di abad ke 21 ini, apakah nama itu masih melekat di sebagian orang yang tinggal di Gresik, atau pernah bermukim di Gresik. Tetapi begiku, kata GARLING tersebut tentunya tidak akan hilang dari ingatan, karena aku dan adik-adikku di besarkan di rumah yang berada di Garling. Orang Gresik dulu, menyebut jalan HOS Cokroaminoto [sekarang] itu dengan Garling, walau tidak ada papan nama jalan yang menyebutkan itu. Dan julukan Garling itu sampai pada kawasan di perempatan yang kemudian di kenal dengan perempatan Bata, karena adanya toko sepatu Bata disitu.

garling-001

Di atas pintu rumah yang kutinggali, dulu ada tulisan seperti papan mana toko, Garling, dalam tulisan huruf tulis [bukun huruf cetak atau gedrujk yang dilafalkan dengan gedrik oleh lidah Jawa]. Tidak seperti lazimnya bila itu adalah papan nama sebuah toko, yang biasanya didahului dengan tulisan “Toko” atau kata lain. Ya hanya “Garling ” itu saja. Ketika bapakku berjualan buku, nama Garling itupun dipakai, setidaknya dalam stempel “Toko Buku Garling”. Saya tidak ingat pasti, kapan papan tulisan Garling, yang dibuat di atas papan kayu bercat cat coklat muda dengan tulisan coklat tua itu dicopot. Entah dulunya berwarna apa, tetapi jelas catnya telah lapuk dimakan usia.

Sayang sekali, pada saat masih banyak orang-orang tua, kami tidak pernah penasaran untuk menanyakan tentang asal usul atau riwayat dari “Garling” itu. Barulah setelah orang-orang tua semakin berkurang, dan sudah tidak ada lagi tempat bertanya, kami tertarik untuk mengetahui riwayat dan kissahnya. Dan dalam mencoba mencari kisah serta riwayat tentang kota Gresik, [Grissee, dalam ejaan zaman Belanda] yang banyak tersebar dalam dunia maya [internet], kamipun mencoba mencari asal-usul “Garling” yang menjadi nama kawasan kecil di Gresik.

Ternyata, dalam kumpulan dokumen lama yang rupanya masih tersimpan rapi di negeri “toean londo” ada secercah tulisan seperti ini

“Vertoog over de waare gesteldheid van dit comptoir en territoir, waarbij werd aangetoond de sterkte van dezelve, en op wat wijze men bij onverhoopte attaque, door een vreemde Europeesche Natie of andere inlandse vorsten zich zouden diffenderen kunnen enz. “,

van J. van Garlingh, waarnemend resident van Grissee.

Afschrift.

1778 juli 24

Entahlah apa arti tulisan itu, yang penting bagiku disana ada “Grissee” dan ada “Garlingh” dalam satu kalimat. Kalau melihat susunan kata dalam kalimat tersebut, setidaknya ada orang asing [Belanda, atau yang pasti orang Eropa] dengan nama famili Garlingh [nanti akan saya ceritakan tentang berbagai bentuk penulisan yang sebenarnya sama-sama Garling; dan dia menjabat sesuatu berkenaan dengan kota Gresik [waarnemend resident van Grissee], atau golongan tertentu penduduk Gresik [bila resident dianalogikan dalam bahasa Inggris, sebagai penghuni]. Inilah susahnya kalau tak mengerti bahasa Belanda.

Memang yang paling mungkin, Garling itu adalah nama salah satu famili [marga] dari orang Eropa yang pernah menjadi penduduk Gresik, setidaknya sebelum pendudukan Jepang. Sayangnya, informasi menjelang peralihan kekuasaan itu adanya sangat minim, mungkin hancur ketika belanda buru-buru meninggalkan bumi persada nusantara ini, mungkin juga ada politik bumi hangus, atau dihancurkan oleh si kecil yang mengaku saudara tua itu [Jepang].

Dari pencarian itu, [filenya masih ketelingsut – nanti aku susulkan kalau ketemu] ternyata ada pula keluarga Garling, yang asalnya tinggal di Penang [dan jadi pejabat juga] yang kemudian pindah ke Surabaya, lalu kemudian berimigrasi lagi ke Australia.

Ternyata memang benar, di Australia sana, Garling itu cukup terkenal, banyak sekali nama jalan, nama properti yang menggunakan nama Garling. Dan mereka itu yang asal-usulnya dari Penang dan Surabaya tadi. Karena pada saat itu Antos sedang ada di Perth, maka adalah foto-foto saat dia memang disuruh untuk foto di Garling Street.

Jadi bila suatu ketika, adik-adik, anak-anak, para keponakan, para cucu sempat berkelana ke manca negara, dan kemudian bertemu dengan nama Garling, apakah sebagai nama orang, nama jalan, nama gedung, nama perkebunan, atau bahkan nama sungai atau gunung, jangan kaget. Itu memang masih ada kaitan dengan Garling, dimana kita dibesarkan.

The Neubronner – Van Der Tuuk Connection

Louisa married Sefridus Van Der Tuuk in 1823. He was a member of the Court of Judicature and President of the Orphan Chamber in Malacca from 1822-1825. The family moved to Surabaya in 1826 where Sefridus became President of the Court of Judicature there. Their son, Dr. Hermann Neubronner Van Der Tuuk became one of the most renowned linguist in Indonesia whose works are still being studied today.

Thomas Neubronner

In 1826, Thomas was assistant to governor Garling in Malacca. He went on to be Justice of Peace. In 1871, he was also the Secretary of the Municipal Commissioners and Police Magistrate. His son, Alfred Dewindt Neubronner moved to Penang to became the Consul of Siam and Agent of the Perak Government. He was also the Chief Coroner in Penang. Alfred’s only son, Henry Alfred Neubronner became one of Penang’s most famous architects and also Consul of Siam. One of Alfred’s daughters, Catharine Louisa Neubronner married Sir Henri Deterding, the pioneer and CEO of Royal Dutch Shell Company.

Dari cerita keluarga Neubronner dan van der Tuuk ini, maka ada Gubernur di Penang [Malaysia] sana yang dari kelompok famili Garling [jelas Garling ini dari jalur Inggris, bukan Belanda].

With the name “Garling Collection” a row of high quality drinks like wine, champagner, cognac, are produced in Moldavia. The label “Garling” is nearly 200 years old. In the year 1813 it was founded by Francois Garling in Moldova. Later the recipes were lost. But in 1994 in the archives of the Institute for Wine Fabrication (sp?) the inimitable recipes from the 70th of the 19. century were found. Their scientific investigation started by the firm “Wine International Project” S.R.L. and wine specialists from Moldova. In the year 1996 the production of the “Garling Collection” started.

Inilah nama-nama tempat yang ada Garling nya. [siapa yang mau mendaftarkan Jalan Garling yang ada di Gresik?]

Garling Road, Kings Park 2148 NSW, Australia

Ian R Garling (ian@garlings.com) submitted:
Due to local government boundary changes, the whole of Garling Road in the Blacktown area, now resides wholly within the suburb of Kings Park only. The following extract is from the Elizabeth Garling dau of Frederick Garling page of the Aussiegarlings Website:
When Frederick Garling learnt of his daughter’s arrival he was returning home from a business trip to Parramatta, in company with his young articled clerk, George Allen. During their absence they had also taken the opportunity to visit Frederick Garling’s farm at Prospect Hill (now Blacktown), and to inspect, for the first time, young Allen’s own recent grant of 300 acres, which was on the eastern side of Garling’s 1200 acres and separated from it by what is now Sunny Holt Road (both properties were intersected by Breakfast Creek).
This property was a land grant from Governor Macquarie and Garling Rd is named after the fact that it is on part of Frederick’s original property, which is now a very busy industrial area.

Furthermore within the Greater City of Sydney, there is now:
Garling Avenue, West Hoxton
Garling Place, Barden Ridge
Garling Place, Currans Hill
Garling Street, Lane Cove West
Garling way, Claymore

The original reason for the use of the Garling name in these different suburbs is unclear. I guess could be that since both Currans Hill and Claymore fall within the local government boundary of Campbelltown, they were named after Keith Garling, the highly publicised Town Clerk of the Campbelltown Municipal Council.

Garling Road, Port Angeles, WA, US

a small road; length aprox. 1 km; located on the town border, goes out of the town. Kevin Garling (KGarling@ci.kent.wa.us) submitted the following:
That road is named for my Grandfather, Albert Garling, who moved out from Grand Rapids Minnesota in approximately 1927. Albert was in the timber industry and when he settled with his family in Port Angeles he bought a sizeable tract of land east of town. The road that exists there now was on his property. To my knowledge we cannot track back beyond Albert since family records were destroyed while the family belongings were stored during the move out to Washington State


Ini ada banyak Garling, tetapi tak ada yang berhubungan dengan Gresik.

Dan ini ada cerita asal-usul serta arti nama Garling

http://www.emecklenburg.de/Garling/mainpage.html

Garling

www.garling.de

Garling is the Mecklenburg (i.e. Low German) variant of the German name Gerling. The meaning of Garling is: son of the javelin thrower. This is derived from the old High German: “ger” = spear, javelin; “ling” = descendant, therefore Garling = descendant of the spear thrower.

There will be a special website only for the Garling genealogy at http://www.garling.de/.

7 Tanggapan to “Garling”

  1. Yazid Fathoni Says:

    Wah, saya yakin tulisan Abah Cacak tentang Gresik ini bisa mengalahkan buku ” Gresik Tempoe Doeloe “nya Pak Dukut Imam Widodo.

    Di rumah Garling, mengingatkan saya saat main layang2 di bagian atap rumah yang kayak benteng itu, pas saat itu ngtop2nya lagu Rhoma Irama : darah muda, bergadang dan terajana.

    Ayo Abah …. ! Tulis teruuuusss

  2. Yazid Fathoni Says:

    Perlu dipertimbangkan pemberian catatan kaki untuk artikel2 berikutnya, sepertinya banyak ” kata-kata sulit” yang hanya diketahui orang-orang Gresik, bisa-bisa hanya diketahui oleh komunitas tertentu saja.

    Begitu juga setiap foto yang dimuat, alangkah baiknya dibawahnya ada keterangan kayak di koran2 itu lho ( apa belum ketemu caranya ? .. he .. he )

  3. Yazid Fathoni Says:

    Saya tidak “menangi” TOKO BUKU GARLING, tapi sempat tahu sisa-sisa buku2 pelajaran spt : Bahasa Kita, Bahasaku, Berhitung.

    Bahkan ada buku umum karangan Bung Karno kalo nggak salah SARINAH dan CAPITA SELECTA.

    Jadi, jaman dulu itu sudah ada konsep RUKO ya , mungkin GARLING itu model RUKO pertama.

  4. Chan Hock Kin Says:

    Saya adalah cucunda kepada gebenur Garling

    • ongkeksuling Says:

      Saya akan sangat senang sekali, bila Bapak dapat menjelaskan lebih jauh, mengenai keterkaitan Bapak dengan Gubernur Garling, khususnya dengan Toko Garling, yang ada di Gresik.
      Kami yang di Gresik, sangat ingin mengetahui lebih banyak, karena informasi itu terputus ketika terjadi pendudukan Jepang [1942-1945] dan revolusi / perang kemerdekaan [1945-1949] yang terjadi di negeri kami.

      Salam

      • Chan Hock Kin Says:

        Hi Ong,

        Gubenur Garling mempunyai dua orang isteri.Saya berasal dari isteri yang pertama

  5. Damien Omen Says:

    kalau menurut saya tentang transkrip dari van j, van garlingh itu van yang belakang menunjukan tempat dimana si pengirim surat berada. setelah itu kata kata waarnemend resident van Grissee, kurang lebih yang bertindak warga gresik. jadi memang ada kemungkinan garling telah dipakai sejak jaman kolonial.
