'In 1854 Dr. Colenso offered him the position of Archdeacon to the diocese of Natal, and after some delay the offer was accepted, the episcopal party sailing on March 7, 1855, in the Jane Morice. Mr. Mackenzie was accompanied by his sister, and their letters and journals give an interesting account of the voyage. The letters to Mr. Goodwin afford much information respecting the general state of affairs in the Colony, and the dissensions in the diocese where Mackenzie remained from 1855 to 1859. In the latter year he returned to England, and it was arranged that he should take charge of the Mission to Central Africa founded by the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and that he should be appointed "the first Missionary Bishop of the Church of England in modern times." ... Early in 1862 Bishop Mackenzie visited an island in the confluence of the Ruo with the Shiré, where he awaited the arrival of Livingstone; here he was attacked by fever, and after about a fortnight's illness died on January 31.' - Mendelssohn I, p. 947.
