6 " The Sennahs were originally settled at Sikong, and they left that country under a leader or chief called Trau. Trau fled from Sikong, having committed the crime of matricide, the particulars of which are too indecent to mention ; suffice it to say, that after cutting down his mother with a parang, he laid open her stomach and found it full of the seeds of every description of fruits. Collecting these, Trau fled towards Sambas with his followers, whence taking prau he arrived at the mouth of the Sarawak river (Sungei Buah). Hence he continued his ascent of the river, and settled at Batu Kara, near Mungo Angus, just above Sungei Siol. Here Trau planted the seeds found in his mother's belly, and the old groves of fruit-trees which are even now in existence on the spot bear witness, say the Dyaks, to the truth of this story. The next place where the Sennahs settled was at Batu Kawa, near Si Gobang ; they then ascended the southern branch of the Sarawak river to a place called Lubuck Tinuwan, on the left bank below Sempro. Trau again moved his followers up stream, and finding the water too shallow for his praus, abandoned them at a place called Batu Jung, about two reaches above the present landing-place'of the Brang tribe, and just above this is a stone called Batu Kamudi. Both these names, say the Sennah Dyaks, were originally given to these places by Trau, the former being the place where his praus proved useless, and the latter being given to the rudder of Trau's prau, which remained so long in existence here, that it finally turned into stone. Having now no prau, Trau and his followers walked overland to Muara Kundung, a small stream between Muara Sennah and Sennah, where they lived sometime, moving from thence to their present location." (Denison, ch. vi. p. 66.)
7 Mr. Denison includes the Grogo, Tambawang, Suba, Krokong, Jagui, and Owp (Aups) in the Sow (Sauh) tribe. The Gumbang and the Tringus he treats as separate tribes, (ch. i. p. 2.)
The Grogo Dyaks are an offshoot of the Sauh Dyaks. After the Sauhs had once crushingly defeated the Sakaran invaders, they Sea Dyak Woman.
were in turn thoroughly beaten by a fresh body of Sakarans. (From c. Dammar's Coll.)
" Thus it came about that the great Sauh tribe became scattered over the face of the country, and is now found under the distinct and separate Dyak names of Grogo, Suba, Krokong, Jagui, and Aup. All these settlements spring from the once flourishing and prosperous tribe of Sauh, which had its location at Beratak, on Gunong Undang. . . .
