The city was managed into the southern cities group that controlled by the Defence ministry. King Mahachakkraphat ordered to establish Mueang Sakhon Buri. King Mongkut (Rama IV) changed the city name to be Samut Sakhon. In 1897 Mueang Samut Sakhon was changed status to be Mueang Samut Sakhon district.
