The Church of England sent its first missionary to Borneo in 1847 at the request and invitation of the first white Rajah, Sir James Brooke. The Revd. Francis Thomas McDougall, priest and doctor was chosen for this pioneer work and his team landed in Kuching on 29th June 1848 after sailing for 6 months from England. A considerable area of jungle-covered hill behind the old town then was given to the church by the Rajah.
