||John Sjovald Hoseason Cunyngham-Brown|
John Sjovald Hoseason Cunyngham-Brown, the Acting Resident Commissioner of Penang (1954) and President of the Municipal Council of George Town (1952-1956).
- John was born on the Isle of Wight, although the family normally lived in Paris at this time, where John's father was lecturing at the Sorbonne. As a result of laws governing nationality at the time, it appears that due to his parent's wanderings, he needed to be born in Britain in order to become a British subject, and the Isle of Wight was as far as his mother made it before he was born. He was unmarried and lived in Penang. He wrote his autobiography, called "Crowded Hour", from which some family details have been obtained. In this book he also gives the early "history" of the Hoseason family, but this is grossly inaccurate. He was friendly with William Sandford Hoseason, and other moneyed members of the family.
- John Sjovald Hoseason Cunyngham-Brown, the Acting Resident Commissioner of Penang (1954) and President of the Municipal Council of George Town (1952-1956). Cunyngham-Brown collaborated with Raymond Flower to write the story of Penang. Unfortunately he passed away on 1 April, 1989, ten years before Flower was able to get the book published [ The Penang Adventure (2009, Marshall Cavendish Editions) ].
