In the history of Jakarta, Cilincing has held quite an important role because this is where on 4 August 1811, the British army nearing 12,000 people arrived without resistance from the Dutch, who at the time were under French rule. They arrived in Cilincing port. This port was used ever since Marunda fish port was closed. It was used as a base and for berths. However, until now, the fishermen still use this port to bring in their catch. Various attempts were made to move them to Muara Angke. Several have moved and a few still remain in Cilincing, whose activities are considered invalid.
