Lin Zexu (August 30, 1785 – November 22, 1850) was a native of Houguan County, Fujian. At the beginning of the fifteenth year of Daoguang (1835), Lin Zexu built ten large and small warehouses in Suzhou City, buying grain from Wuxi for storage. Because the land is in present-day Changzhou, Yuanhe, Wu, Jiangsu, the disaster relief warehouse was named "Changyuan Wufeng Beiyi Cang" in history.
