["Captain Francis Light (1740 - 25 October 1794)[1][2][3][4] was the founder of the British colony of Penang (in modern-day Malaysia) and its capital George Town in 1786.From 1765, he worked as a private country trader. For about ten years he had his headquarters in Salang, Thailand, near Phuket, reviving a failed French trading post. While living there he learned to speak and write several languages, including Malay and Siamese. In 1785, he warned the Thais on Phuket Island of an imminent Burmese attack. Light's warning enabled the islanders to prepare for Phuket's defence and subsequently repel the Burmese invasion. For the British East India Company, he leased the island of Penang from the Sultan of Kedah, where many others had failed. The multicultural colony became extraordinarily successful from its inception. Light served as the Superintendent of the colony until his death"] Light, Francis, -- 1740?-1794.,Malay Peninsula -- History.,Britten.,Light, F. -- (Francis), -- 1740-1794. Ex-Library.
