History


British North Borneo Companyadministration building in Sandakan on 1899.

 

Beginning in the early 1870s, the east coast of Sabah was under the control of the Sultanate of Sulu. The first European settlement was built by a Scottish arms smuggler named William Clarke Cowie who named the settlement "Sandakan," which in the Suluk languagemeans "of seized place". The settlement was soon renamed Kampung Jerman, due to the presence of several German bases there.

In 1878, the settlement, along with the entire territory of North Borneo was sold to the Austro-Hungarian consul Baron von Overbeck, who had signed a concession contract with the Sultan of Sulu. This early settlement was burnt down on 15 June 1879 and was never thereafter rebuilt.

The British Resident, William B. Pryer, moved to the settlement on 21 June 1879 to a residence in what is today known as Buli Sim Sim near Sandakan Bay. It was Pryer who gave the settlement the name Elopura meaning "Beautiful Town". Several years later the settlement was again renamed Sandakan. The name Elopura, however, is still used for some local government functions of the Sabah State Legislative Assembly, including elections.
