Charles Frederick Frazier Mackenzie (1825–62) was a Church of England bishop of Central Africa. Following Dr David Livingstone's request, Bishop Mackenzie took on the position of being the first missionary bishop in Nyasaland (now Malawi) and worked among the people of the Manganja country until January 1862. A boat he was travelling on sank and as their medical supplies were lost, Bishop Mackenzie’s malaria could not be treated. He died of Blackwater fever on 31 January 1862. Dr Livingstone erected a cross over his grave.
