Notes on the Geography of Malaysia: Colonial Kuching (Religious): Photo 10
Near the church, the so-called Bishop's House was originally a Chinese-owned private home. It later became a boarding school and is now the diocesan center. The first Bishop of Kuching, by the way, was James McDougall, chosen by James Brooke probably because McDougall was also a surgeon. McDougall stayed in Sarawak for 20 years but returned to England in failing health in 1868. He recovered enough to serve later as bishop of Ely and, later still, Winchester.
