When did the Long Pole become apart of Wing Chun?

When did the short swords or butterfly knives become apar of Wing Chun?

Where both weapons apart of Wing Chun when the Nun Ng Mui help invent Yung Chun Quan?

Most Wing Chun history before Dr. Leung Jan is very vague but not necesarily untrue. Here is info that may or may not help...

Dr. Leung Jan is as far back as the lineages that descend from himYip Man, Yiu Kai, Pan Nam, Tam Yeung, Fung Singcan reliably verify their genealogy. He was a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine in the city of Foshan in the 19th century. Leung Jan is said to have learned from Wong Wah Bo and Leung Yee-Tai, respectively the male and "female" martial leads of the Red Boat Opera Company, each of whom is said to have been an expert on different aspects of Wing Chun. According to legends from the Yip Man lineage, Leung Yee-Tai was a poler, that is, he used a pole to steer the Red Boat away from rocks and shoals, and was therefore chosen by the legendary Shaolin master Jee Shim himself to learn the six-and-a-half point pole. Leung Jans students included his sons Leung Chun and Leung Bik as well as "Wooden Man" Wah and Chan Wah Shun, nicknamed "Moneychanger Wah", from whom the Yip Man, Yiu Kai, and Pan Nam lineages descend.

After the marriage, Wing Chun taught her kungfu to her husband Leung Bok Chau, and he passed his kungfu techniques on to Leung Lan Kwai. Leung Lan Kwai passed it on to Wong Wah Bo. Wong Wah Bo was a member of an opera troupe on board a junk, known to the Chinese as the Reb Junk. Wong worked on the Red Junk with Leung Yee Tei. It so happened that Abbot Chi Shin, who fled from Siu Lam, has disguised himself as a cook and was now working on the Red Junk. Chi Shin taught the Six-and-a-half Point Long Pole Techniques to Leung Yee Tei. Wong Wah Bo was close to Leung Yee Tei, and they shared what they knew about kungfu together they correlated and improved their techniques, and thus the Six-and-half-point Long Pole Techniques were incorporated into Wing Chun kungfu.
