Charles Frederick Frazier Mackenzie (1825-1862) was a Church of England bishop of Central Africa. Following Dr David Livingstone's request to Cambridge, Bishop Mackenzie took on the position of being the first missionary bishop in Nyasaland (now Malawi). He opposed the slave trade causing the enmity of the Yao and he worked among the people of the Manganja country until January 1862 when he went on a supplies trip. The boat they were travelling on sank and as their medical supplies were lost, Bishop Mackenzie's malaria could not be treated. Dr Livingstone erected a cross over his grave.
