First Generation

 

1. Charles Doig  was born about 1717 in Of Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland.

 

James was the son of James Doig and Margaret Thomson. The link to parents is based on approx. age, location, and witness to a christening of his brother Walter's

child in 1743. It is confirmed by Deuchar. [We need a male Doig descendant from these descendants to join our Doig DNA project HERE.

 

Charles was a farmer in McCorastoun and Boghall in Kilmadock Parish, Perthshire, at least from 1741 to

1743. Charles in McOrriston was witness to the christening of Isobell Dog on 6 Jan 1743, daughter of

Walter Dog  and Margaret Caidden. Walter is probably his brother as they both married a Caidden and

had daughters named Isobel.

 

Other children may have been born before Margaret or between Margaret and Isabel. The parish record

is missing from Oct 1746 to Oct 1748.

 

Charles married Ann Cadien  daughter of James Cadien. Ann was born in 1719 in Dunblane, Perth, Scotland. She was christened on 18 Oct 1719 in Dunblane, Perth, Scotland.

 

They had the following children:

+          2 F         i.  Margaret Doig  was born in 1745. She died on 6 Jul 1829.

               3 M        ii.  Thomas Doig  was born about 1747 in Of Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland.  

Recorded by Duechar who reported Thomas a wright in Thornhill.

               4 F        iii.  Isabel Doig  was born in 1750 in McKeanstoun, Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. She was christened on 13 May 1750 in Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland.  

Witnesses at Isobell's christening were Paul Dog there [McKeanstoun] and William

McKison in Boghall. [Mother's name listed as Agnes Caidden in the OPR, a probable error.]

+          5 M      iv.  Charles Doig  was born in 1752.

 

Second Generation

 

2. Margaret Doig  (Charles) was born in 1745 in Boghall, Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. She was christened on 12 Feb 1745 in Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. She died on 6 Jul 1829 in Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. She was buried in Norrieston Churchyard, Thornhill, Kincardine, Perth, Scotland.

 

Witnesses at Margaret's christening were John and David Dog.

 

The following link is based on approx. age, location, a daughter named Ann, and her husband being

witness to the christening of her brother Charles Doig's son James in 1789.

 

Sasine recorded 19 Dec 1805 - Archibald Murdoch, farmer in Auchinsalt, seised in a pendicle of the 40 s.

land of Maccrieston called Bleacher's Acre, with part of the common muir and teinds, in the Parish of

Kilmadock, on disposition and settlement by John Henderson, farmer in Pendreich, with consent of

Margaret Doig, his spouse, to John Henderson in Pendreich, his son on 22 July 1803, and dispositioned

and assigned by him on 25 Nov 1805; recorded 25 Jan 1806 in Perth.  On 18 July 1821 James

Henderson, farmer at Cambusdrenny, seised in a piece of ground and houses thereon in Doune,

Kilmadock, under burden of the liferent of Margaret Doig, spouse of John Henderson, farmer at

Pendreich, of 2 rooms in the Reddhouse, on disposition and settlement by the said John Henderson,

with consent of the said Margaret Doig on 22 July 1803; recorded 20 July 1821 at Perth.  On 18 Aug

1821 James Wright, writer in Stirling, seised in a piece of ground and houses thereon in Doune, under

exceptions, in security of £200, on bond and disposition by James Henderson, farmer at Cambusdrenny,

with consent of Margaret Doig, relict of John Henderson, farmer at Pendreich, his mother, on 4 Aug

1821; recorded 21 Aug 1821 at Perth.

 

Sasine recorded 20 Feb 1854 in Perth - Ann Henderson, residing at Cambusdenny near Stirling, relict of

Thomas Finlayson, farmer in Kerse of Burnbank, seised in a pro indiriso part of a dwelling house with

garden and a piece of ground with houses in Doune Campsie, under burden, on disposition and

settlement by John Henderson, farmer in Pendreich, and Margaret Doig, his spouse, on 22 July 1803. 

And on 12 June 1854 the same land was seised by Janet Shirra, spouse of Thomas Murdoch residing in

Glasgow, and Margaret Shirra, spouse of James Shirra, sometime grocer in Glasgow, now residing in

Chicago, North America, as heirs portioners to Margaret Henderson, spouse of John Shirra, farmer at

Chapel near Doune, their mother, on disposition by John Henderson and Margaret Doig to Ann

Henderson, spouse of Thomas Finlayson.

He was buried in Aug 1804 in Norrieston Churchyard, Thornhill, Kincardine, Perth, Scotland.

 

Pendreich is in Logie parish, and it seems he moved there after the birth of his children who were

baptised in Kilmadock parish. He is also probably the John Henderson of Ochtertyre (Kincardine parish)

who appears as a witness to the baptism of a child of Charles Doig in 1789.The testament of James

Henderson refers to his son John Henderson as tenant in Murdochstoun (testament written in 1780) and

when it was confirmed after James's death in 1793 he was described as "sometime tenant in

Murdochstoun thereafter in Westfield of Ochtertyre". Therefore he moved to Pendreich sometime after 1793.

 

John died at a reported age 70 years.

Friday afternoon a man by the name of Charles Doig, who lately kept a change-house [ale house or

tavern] in the Gorbals, Glasgow, was visiting some of his acquaintances, with whom he had some drink.

About eleven o’clock at night, when he was going home, accompanied by his wife, a fellow met him in

the Main Street, Gorbals, who made an attempt to snatch his watch, and at the same instant struck him

a violent blow on the forehead, which knocked him down, and the back part of his head struck the

pavement in the fall. Doig was lifted and carried into a house in a state of insensibility. When recovered

a little he was assisted home, and he complained much of his head, imploring the people in attendance

to hold it and bind it, as it was knocked to pieces. He was visited several time in the night by a surgeon.

About seven o’clock next morning a vein was opened, and the moment the bleeding was stopped, the

man expired. He has left a widow and three small children to wail his death. The fellow who struck the

fatal blow disappeared instantly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thomas Finlayson (1809–1872), minister of the United Presbyterian church.

Finlayson, second son of Thomas Finlayson, a farmer, was born at Coldoch, Blair Drummond,

Perthshire, 22 Dec. 1809. He received his elementary education at the parish school of Kincardine in

Menteith, and preparatory to entering college engaged in a special study of the classics at a school in

the village of Doune in Kilmadock parish. At the university of Glasgow and at the theological hall of the

united secession church he went through the usual course of training, and was licensed as a preacher

of the gospel in April 1835 by the presbytery of Stirling and Falkirk. Part of his period of study was spent

in teaching a school at Dumbarton, where he formed a friendship with the Rev. Dr. Andrew Somerville,

who afterwards became the secretary of the foreign mission of the united presbyterian church. In

November 1835 Finlayson was ordained minister of the Union Street congregation, Greenock, where he

founded a missionary society, and in two years persuaded his people to pay off the large debt existing

on the church. After twelve years of admirable ministerial work in Greenock he was called to be

colleague and successor to the Rev. John m'Gilchrist of Rose Street Church, Edinburgh, and, having

accepted the call, was inducted to the ministry there in September 1847. The congregation to which he

now became minister was one of very few churches which at that time set an example and gave a tone

to the whole church. They at once attached themselves to their new minister. He was elected moderator

of the supreme court of his church in 1867, and shortly afterwards received the degree of D.D. from the

university of Edinburgh. As one of the most ardent promoters of the manse fund, he was the chief agent

in raising 45,000l., which led to the spending of 120,000l. in building and improving manses in two

hundred localities. In the management of the augmentation fund he also took a deep interest. As a

preacher he excelled in distinct and powerful exhibition of the truth; whatever he had to say came fresh

from his own independent thought, went straight to the heart of the subject, and made an immediate

impression on his hearers. The untimely death in 1868 of his eldest son Thomas, a promising advocate

at the Scottish bar, caused him intense grief, from which he never fully recovered. On 7 Oct. 1872 his

congregation celebrated the semi-jubilee of his ministry in Edinburgh. Having gone to Campbeltown to

take part in an induction service there, he was suddenly attacked with failure of the heart's action, and

was found dead in his bed on 17 Oct. 1872. He was buried in the Grange cemetery, Edinburgh, on 22

Oct. He married, in 1836, Miss Chrystal, by whom he had six children. (Wikipedia, incorporates text from

John Wingate emigrated to New Zealand in 1861. He came back for a year (according to the family) and

of land, which he cleared using horses and chains, and built a house which he called Meldrum, after the

family farm in Scotland. It is now a big sheep farm and is owned by John's great-grandson, also John

Wingate.

 

John's will was probated in 1927.

In 1863, John returned to Scotland where he married Jessie Thompson of Stirling in 1864. They

returned on the "Mallard" to Wellington, a voyage of six months.

 

Their first born was Anne McArthur in 1865, in Wellington. They then moved to the Wairarapa to settle at

Springvale (Nga Rata) where they built a small whare and farmed for three years. Two more daughters

were born — Margaret Helen, and Willenia Jessie. The latter was to marry Charles Weston, the

Alfredton School teacher from 1891-94.

 

John then managed — for eleven years — Manawa Station at Annadale where Matilda Maude Mary and

Andrea Isabella were born, and John Gordon in 1876.

 

In 1880, a bushclad block of 1300 acres (526.1 ha) — the only piece of Manawa on the western side of

the Tauwera River — was purchased from Waring Taylor. John named this block Meldrum — after the

farm he had left in Stirling, Scotland.

 

The house at Meldrum was built before the family moved from Manawa. The bricks being made on

Meldrum, while the pit-sawn timber, mainly rimu, came from the bush area under Nga Puka.

 

When John Gordon Wingate attended Alfredton School in 1891, he boarded at Te Hoe during the week,

while his sisters were taught by a governess at home.

 

Margaret Helen went on to write articles about the early life of her family. One story was published in "

The Tales of Pioneer Women", a collection of stories by members of the Women’s Institutes of New

Zealand. In this story she tells of her mother’s childbearing times, often without a doctor — and

sometimes even a nurse was unable to be present — because of floods, storms and the sheer distance

to be travelled.

 

    "Nature does not wait for man, and the little stranger had arrived even before the father had returned

with the nurse. The mother was quite alone in the house, but she survived the ordeal and the child was

born strong and well.

 

    When Mrs. Wingate’s last child was born she was so weak that she became unconscious and nearly

died, but her life was saved by the skill and devotion of the nurse, Miss Selina Sutherland. This nurse

was a noted figure in the Wairarapa in the seventies and often rode fifty miles to a patient. She later

became the first Matron of the first Hospital (Masterton Public).

 

    She wrote of Mrs. Telford of Blairlogie and Mrs. Wingate of Nga Rata and Manawa, who were great

friends. These women blazed the trail. They ground the wheat grown by their husbands and made it into

bread which they baked in camp ovens, their only light was evil smelling slush lamps or candles made

from tallow, they made their own soap, their own and their children's clothes and very often their

husbands as well. Their lives were completely isolated from the outside world with little or no means of

communication.

 

This article was published in 1940.

 

A 13 year old daughter, Andrea, died during the Diphtheria Epidemic before a doctor could be brought

on horseback from Masterton, but he was able to save one other — by surgical means — who had the  

scar for the rest of her life.

 

At Meldrum, hospitality was the family’s main means of social contact, visitors staying two to three days.

 

C.F. and L.T. Daniell called on occasions. Another caller, W.B. Matheson, recorded in his diary at the

time of his honeymoon March 28, 1899, "Fine day, Wingates very hospitable people. They had delicious

pears, grapes, and apples". W.B. Matheson and his wife Annie (Speedy) often visited Wingates —

probably to break the journey between Annie’s parents home at Woodbank, Cape Turnagain, and their

own home in the Mangaone Valley. A light always shone from the window offering a welcome or a

comfort as people passed by.

 

The Meldrum homestead was at the cross-roads of the bullock tracks to Manawa, Alfredton, Glendonald

and Burlings (to the north).

 

Flour, tea, sugar and essential supplies came by bullock wagon from Castlepoint every six months,

taking any goods for market on the return journey. One such dispatch — addressed to an overseas

market — was two big barrels of salted butter, which had taken months to make. But nothing was ever

heard of it again.

 

Farming the land involved clearing the bush and making ditch and bank fences, as the area lacked

heavy totara which could be used for post and rail fences, while wire was unavailable.

 

At first only cattle were farmed, some going wild. Later, as more bush was cleared and the land was

sown to establish good pastures, sheep were grazed. But Meldrum and its surrounding district was hit

by the New Zealand wide plague of rabbits. John Gordon, the son, killed hundreds of rabbits, having a

team of 25 rabbit dogs at one stage. The use of Pollard, poisoned with phosphorus (although cruel),

managed to reduce rabbits to a controllable number, while the introduction of the stoat, weasel and

ferret, also helped.

 

In 1907, when John Wingate retired to Masterton, his son John Gordon took over the running of the farm,

having spent time on fencing contracts and blade shearing on stations. He was noted too for his

horsemanship, riding in hunts in the Tinui area.

 

Using a Hillside plough, which worked in both directions, John became one of the first to try ploughing

the hills. Later he used a two-furrow Reid and Grey plough pulled by horses that he himself had bred

and broken in.

 

He married Beatrice McLachlan in December 1911 and went to live at Meldrum. Some renovations were

made to the house at this stage, corrugated iron being laid over the shingle roof. Beatrice’s first child,

Jessie, was born at Meldrum — with a doctor and nurse in attendance. She travelled by horseback to

Masterton for the confinement of Leta and John Duncan. Eric was born around the time the family

moved to Opaki in 1919 — and Enid in 1927.

 

The school at Alfredton was some 13 miles from Meldrum along a clay road, so when Jessie was about

seven years old the move to Opaki was inevitable for education purposes. Jessie remembers being tied

on the pony, with her sister, before crossing the ford and travelling to Manawa to collect their mail. It was

always a thrill to ride with their father. They had to stand with their hands clasped above their heads,

while he rode by to lift them up and sit them in front of him on the saddle. She also recalls the purchase

of a new buggy as the family grew, and visiting Alfredton. The family travelled up from Opaki to work on  

the farm during the busy season and at holiday times.

 

Jock Millar, who had previously been working on Meldrum, now managed the farm while John Gordon

used to ride up through Bideford to Meldrum, a route that was also used for shifting stock between the

farm at Opaki and Meldrum.

 

Access was improved, first by the bridging of the Tauweru River, and secondly by the metalling of 12

miles of clay road from Kilmory to Manawa during the depression.

 

Bert Duckett managed Meldrum for eight years from 1930 to 1938, his sons Leo and Harold doing

fencing, road metalling and scrubcutting.

 

Bob May was another manager but he left in 1941, and with many of the country’s young men at war,

and petrol being rationed, John Gordon (now in his late sixties) had to ride to Meldrum from Opaki and

look after both farms.

 

John Duncan was overseas for two and a half years, during W.W.II, returning to manage the farm from

1944 to 1948, when he purchased it.

 

In 1946 he married Sheila Kennedy. Sheila remembers the house being warm, with two storeys and

three attic-type bedrooms as well as two downstairs. The pantry was very large — for the storage of the

bulk supplies of earlier days. Sheila said, "It was like a black hole, without electric lights — candles and

coleman lanterns were used. Cooking was done on a wood range and the woodbox was always empty."

Then a new range and boiler system that burnt wood and coal was installed, while a windmill pumped

water from the Tauweru River.

 

A Mrs. Potts iron was always on the stove, as was the kettle. Electricity did not come until 1957, prior to

them moving into the new house.

 

By this time it was possible to travel from the Nga Puka mailbox to Masterton —and home again on the

same day — by catching the Alfredton, and then the Pongaroa Mail Bus Service.

 

Scrub was again a problem. The team of eight horses that John by now had got together after his return

from the war, was used with the giant discs and a swamp plough (with a 20 inch furrow) to break in the

land. A team of three horses was used when drilling.

 

Progress continued and a David Brown crawler was purchased in 1956, enabling 90 acres of land to be

worked in the one year.

 

A DeSoto truck was used for wool and other farm cartage.

 

John and Sheila had a family of six children — John Andrew, Julie, Adrian, Betty, Marie and Laurence.

 

The distance from Alfredton School meant John had to start his schooling at Hadlow in Masterton, until

three of the children were of school age when they travelled on the Transport Bus to school — a long

trip each day for a five year old.

 

However, correspondence schooling was again necessary in the late 1960s. Because of the lack of

children on Castlehill, the school bus only ran as far as Kilmory.

 

A new house was built about 1957 when all the buildings were renewed because of the borer damage to

 

the untreated rimu timber. Some sound timber was used to build a three-stand raised-board shearing

shed.

 

In 1969, when John Andrew married Carol Goodin, John and Sheila moved to Masterton.

 

During this time, scrub clearing, land development and fencing had been continued and with an

improved Romney flock, a Romney ram breeding programme was begun in 1970.

 

Although the roads have improved over the years it is still a 25 minute trip to Alfredton.

 

John and Carol have five daughters — the fifth generation of Wingates on Meldrum.

 

Mona and Meldrum are bounded on the east by the Castlehill Block of the Ngaumu State Forest, which,

with modern equipment — scrub rollers, spraying and naphtha fire — has been cleared of scrub and is

planted in pine trees: work for the future!

 

John married Janet (Jessie) Doig Thomson  daughter of William Thomson and Ann McArthur on 15 Nov 1864 in Burnbank, Kincardine, Perth, Scotland. Janet was born on 14 Jan 1842 in Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. She was christened on 17 Feb 1842 in Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. She died in 1924 in Meldrum, Alfredton, Wairarapa, New Zealand.
