Charles Frederick Frazier Mackenzie (1825-1862) was a Church of England bishop of Central Africa.

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.

A Congolese chief outside his hut. A plate from 'Voyage au Congo et dans l'interieur de l'Afrique Equinoxiale', three volumes, by Jean Baptiste Douville (1794-1837). A wealthy traveller, Douville visited Luanda in 1828, before returning to Paris in 1831 and claiming to have explored the African interior. On the strength of his account he was awarded the Société de Géographie's third 'Grande Médaille d'Or des Explorations'. He published this account in 1832 but by the end of the year it was established that his involvement was fiction. After his fiancée killed herself because of the scandal, he left France for Brazil where he was murdered in 1837. Sir Richard Burton maintained that the details in the account were credible, but today it is believed that Douvill's chief sources were unpublished Portuguese manuscripts to which he had ready access.
