Jawatan Kosong Pentadbiran Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang Oktober 2011
The history of Penang began in 1786, when Captain Francis Light struck a deal with the Sultan of Kedah. He acquired Pulau Pinang (Penang Island) from the Sultan on behalf of the East India Company, and in return, he promised Kedah protection against its powerful neighbours. By 1800, Light had also managed to negotiate for a strip of land across the channel. The place was named Province Wellesley (after the Governor of India) and is now the present Seberang Perai. Light named the island Prince of Wales Island because the acquisition date fell on the prince’s birthday. He first landed at the site of the present Esplanade. The place was then no more than a swampy, malaria-infested area. To clear the place, he loaded the ship’s cannons with silver dollars and fired them into the jungle to encourage faster clearing of the thick undergrowth by labourers.
A town was established and named George Town, after the Prince of Wales. The grid of this settlement was bordered by Light Street, Chulia Street, Pitt Street (Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling) and Bishop Street. To encourage settlers, the port was accorded a duty-free status and new arrivals were allowed to claim as much land as they could clear. From virtually an uninhabited island, the population grew to 10,000 by the end of the century. Penang became a trading post for tea, spices (cloves and nutmegs from local plantations), pepper from Acheh and textiles from India. Later on, the regional trade grew to include tin, then rubber. It became the crossroads of great civilizations, a melting pot of the East. Traders and settlers came from the Europe, India, China, the Malay Archipelago, Thailand and Burma. The free and neutral British port was favoured over Dutch trading posts because of the latterâ€™s heavy restrictions and taxes. The Europeans settled at Light Street, the Eurasians from Kedah and Phuket stayed at Bishop Street and Church Street (Lebuh Gereja). The Straits Chinese traders from Kedah and Melaka who came here to seek new opportunities converged at China Street while the Indian traders settled at Chulia Street.
By the early 1800s, George Town had grown to include two more streets – Armenian Street inhabited by the Armenians and Acheen Street, home to the Acheenese, other Sumatrans and Malays. In 1832, Penang formed part of the Straits Settlements with Melaka and Singapore. Besides being a commercial interest and land of opportunities, Penang was also a liberal haven to the various communities – the Malays escaping Siamese attacks in Kedah, the Eurasians fleeing religious persecution in South Thailand, the Manchu-oppressed Chinese and the South Indians who left a homeland of poverty and strife.
Penang remained under British Colonial rule until 1957, when it gained independence under the Federation of Malaya. It was briefly occupied by the Japanese from 1941 to 1945. In 1963, it became part of Malaysia when Sabah and Sarawak came into the group. (Source: Biro Penerangan Negeri Pulau Pinang)
