About Author

Sir Spenser St. John

Sir Spenser St. John was the British Consul in Brunei in the mid-nineteenth century. On September 20, 1827, Spenser was christened at St Pancras Old Church. In 1847, St. John's father, journalist James Augustus St. John, introduced him to James Brooke. The following year, he traveled to Sarawak to serve as Brooke's private secretary, launching his diplomatic career. He served as the British Consul General in Brunei beginning in 1856, and in 1858 he climbed Mount Kinabalu twice with Hugh Low. Mount Kinabalu's "St John's Peak" is named in his honor. St John was appointed British charge d'affaires in Haiti in 1863, and again in the Dominican Republic in 1871. He was appointed Minister in Haiti late in 1872, then charge d'affaires in Lima and Minister in Peru from 1874 to 1883, during which time he received the KCMG. While in Peru, he amassed a ceramic collection that is currently housed in the British Museum. In 1884, St John released Hayti: Or, The Black Republic, a chronicle of his adventures in Haiti that sparked public indignation with exaggerated accounts of cannibalism in the Vodou faith.
