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

The lands of Reswallie were church lands belonging to the Priory of Resteneth. They came into possession of Sir Richard Preston of the old family of Preston of Craigmillar Castle near Edinburgh who had a charter of the lands of Reswallie on 14th March 1598-9. He was created Lord Dingwall in 1607.

The property was subsequently acquired by the Doigs who held lands in Brechin from before 1532, and some of them were Magistrates of that city in the first half of last century. They also possessed Cookston and acquired Balzeordie by marriage in the first half of the 16th century. Christian, a daughter of the family, was married to Sir James Carnegie, Bart. She died in 1820 aged 91 years. They owned Reswallie during part of the 17th century.

It is probable that the Prestons sold the estate to Thomas Hunter who was designed of Reswallie in the early part of the 17th century. He was succeeded in the property by his son, also Thomas, who on 29th March 1650 was served heir (No. 611) to Thomas Hunter of Reswallie, in Muirton and Eelark, Clocksbriggs and mill, &c. The Doigs and Hunters may both have had an interest in the lands at the same time. There is a tombstone in the graveyard of Rescobie to the memory of Janet Dal, spouse of Master David Doig of Resvale, who lived with her husband 15 years, and died 8th September 1658 in the 37th year of her age.

On 27th January 1693 David Doig, heir of Master David Doig of Reswallie, his immediate younger brother, and Joan Doig, heiress of Master David Doig, son of the late David Doig of Reswallie, were each retoured No 524 in an annual of 18 from the Kirkton of Aberlemno, belonging to John Thornton. Mr Powrie says the Doigs appear to have succeeded the Hunters in Reswallie, but they do not appear to have had any interest in Clocksbriggs.

The estate of Reswallie was acquired by the late William Powrie, a merchant in Dundee, in 1816. On the death of Mr Powrie in 1845, he was succeeded in the property by his son, James Powrie, who is the present proprietor. He has greatly improved the estate, and he has planted in the vicinity of the mansion house specimens of many varieties of the new conifers lately introduced into this country, which are thriving well. The mansion is very suitable for the estate, and it is both commodious and handsome. Many large and noble trees adorn the grounds around the house. Mr Powrie has devoted part of his time to the study of geology and he has a very interesting and extensive collection of rare fossils.

Notes for Francis Doig

Francis has been reported as the only son by David Doig and Janet Dall [Duechar].

Francis lived in Forfar, Glamis, Rescobie, and Brechin. In the Rental Book of 1684/5 Francis was exempted from payment; he farmed at Wafthill of Glamis. On 13 Nov 1684: "I have sett his roume for the same dewtie to ffrancis Doig in the Myretoun." [The Book of Record - Glamis Papers, (Edinburgh: Constable, 1890), page 71.] Later he took over Myretoun, Glamis, the farm of James Smith, who was absent at London. On the Hearth Tax published 3 Apr 1692 he is listed as Francis Doig of Roswallie.

Francis does not appear to have liked his name as he named no children after himself. None of his children are known to have named a son Francis. The only other Francis Doig of this early perod lived in Auchtermuchty, Fife, and had children between 1706 and 1717.

The earliest recorded Doig in Kinnettles is Janet Dogg in 1692 who paid £2-1-08 for the hearth tax. Francis may have been married a second time for the younger children. The Kinnettles Parish record begins in 1696. The construction of the first generations is uncertain and based on all the recorded information in the parish record.

John Doig of Unthank was a merchant. He was also an elder of the Presbyterian Church in Brechin, and a strong enemy of the Jacobites and Episcopacy. In 1701 he became Provost of Brechin, alternately losing and regaining the position in the following years. In April 1712 a serious riot is recorded in Brechin, and James Millar, deacon of the shoemakers, led a party to "beat, blood, and wound in the head and other parts of the body, the said John Doig;" the results are not recorded. In 1713 John was named district Commissioner. When Queen Ann died in 1714 the Earl of Mar attempted to restore the exiled Stewarts in 1715. The Brechin town council backed the Earl of Mar, and Provost Doig was suspended from office and imprisoned by the rebels. The Earl of Mar and his Jacobite friends were defeated, and an election at the church on 11 May 1716 returned Provost John Doig and his party to power.

In that year [1709] Doig, a Hanoverian and Presbyterian, managed to get the Provostship, but so obnoxious was he, from both his political and ecclesiastical principles, that in 1712 a party of the shoemakers of the town, led by their Deacon, raised a riot, and did 'beat, blood and wound in the head and other parts of the body the said John Doig.' When the Rebellion broke out in 1715 Doig was disposted and cast into prison; and the powers of chief magistrate were wielded by Bailie Spence, not as Provost by name, but as the Earl of Panmure's bailie, justiciar, and constable. The Presbyterian ministers were forced to flee for safety, and their places were taken by Episcopalians, who retained them till the return to power of Doig and this party, next year. So disturbed was the state of the town, that no meeting of Session was held from August, 1715 to February, 1716; nor was the Lord's Supper dispensed in the town from 1714 to 1720. [Historic scenes in Forfarshire, By William Marshall, printed by Oliphant, 1875.]

John was also a Baillie of Montrose in 1697 and again in 1706-8. He was Burgess of Montrose in 1702. He became Provost for the period of 1709 to 1725, lacking only the year of the Rebellion in 1715.

Notes: Witnesses to John's christening were Mr. John Wilson, John Doig, and David Young. John was a weaver and crofter [small acreage farmer] at Carseburn, 1-1/2 miles NNE of Forfar. In the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 he was hired by the County to serve in Lord Ogilvy's Regiment. After defeat at Culloden on 16 Apr 1746 he went into hiding. He was captured at Inverness in June 1746 and became a prisoner at the 'Jane of Leith' Tilbury Fort. His subsequent disposal in unknown. [Sir Bruce Gordon & John Gordon Arnot, "Prisoners of the 45," Vol. II (Edinburgh: Costable, 1829), page 156. Alexander Macintosh, "The Muster of the Forfarshire or Lord Ogilvy's Regiment 1745-6," (Inverness: No. Counties Newspaper, 1914), page 20.] National Archives, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, England: Haleney, Cristain (wife of John Doeg, prisoner in Tilbury Fort), with correspondence and character references relating to Doeg (and one William Read for Doeg's release), 1746. [T.S.20/131/19] John Doeg's pass signed by Charles Gray, 20 June 1746. [T.S.20/130/7] ---------------------------------------------------------------- Damn' Rebel Bitches: The Women of the '45, By M Craig, Maggie Craig (Mainstream Publishing Company (Edinburgh) Ltd. 2000) John Doig 24 years old, a weaver from Carseburn near Forfar in Angus, had been forced out by the Jacobites. It was a defence offered by many after the event and was often treated with a great deal of scepticism. John, however, had a wife to be reckoned with. He had deserted from the Jacobite army as soon as an opportunity present itself and returned home to Carseburn well before Culloden. When news came of the defeat there, he surrendered himself to John Kerr, the local minister. The Duke of Cum berland himself had asked the clergy of the Church of Scotland to receive the surrenders of the common people. John Kerr, however, neglected to give John Doig the required certificate to prove his voluntary surrender and he was picked up from his home in May by a troop of redcoats and taken to Inverness. His wife Christian Hakeney, went with them and put his case to the officer in charge of the transports to London. Although her husband left Inverness in June, bound for Tilbury on the Lane of Leith, Christian was advised to go back home and get the required certificate from the minister, which would surely procure John's release. She did rather more than that, as a sheaf of papers in the archives of the Public Record Office proves. Not only did she get the required certificate from John Kerr, she also went to the sheriff and deputy sheriff of the county of Forfar and got letters from them too, attesting to her husband's having been forced out. She made her way to London, reaching the city around the middle of July. She delivered the papers in person to the home of John Maule, one of the government Lawyers. He lived in Argyll Street, nearby present-day Oxfor Circus. She also wrote a petition 'humbly begging your honour' to help her either to prove her husband's innocence, or at least to get permission to see him in gaol at Tilbury where he 'lies very bad of a fever'. It seems to have worked. John Maule recommended dismissing the prisoner. He disappears from the records, was neither hanged, imprisoned or transported. We can only hope that the redoubtable Kristy pulled it off, nursed him back to health and took him home to Forfar. MARRIAGE: John was listed from Rescobie and Christian from Forfar.

Bond by Charles Guthrie, writer in Edinburgh, to David Doig of Cookstown

David was a merchant, and he also became involved in smuggling. In April 1733 his ship "Christian & Magdalen" of Montrose sailed north with a cargo of salt. The ship put ashore at Maiden Cove and unloaded 43 ankers (1 anker = approx. 10 gallons) of brandy. A party of 10 soldiers and Excise men surprised the smugglers and seized the brandy. Their success was short lived as a mob gathered and chased the taxmen away. The brandy disappeared towards Brechin. The next day David was overheard at the inn of Kinnell to remark "he had been in an engagement the night before, at the Maiden Cove, with some soldiers, rescuing his brandy." He then proceeded to sell one of the ankers of brandy to the innkeeper.

David was admitted as Burgess of Edinburgh on 29 Mar 1729 and again 12 Oct 1757. David was Provost of Brechin until 1740. In about 1745 he challenged the nominated Provost of Brechin, James Coutts, because he was in prison; Doig won as Provost by 8 votes to 7. After that he moved to Montrose where he was Provost in 1746, 1749-50, 1753-4, 1757-8, and 1761-2, being a Town Councilor during the intervening years.

The family lived for a time at a house on Black Bull Close, where Agnes was born.

In 1728 David presented a folio Bible to the Brechin Cathedral. This replaced the "Popish" bible used since 1655. David Doig's bible was replaced in 1807.

In 1745 David challenged James Coutts, a probable relative of his second wife, defeating him by a slim vote.

David was not well liked, and a local legend plays upon his name:

"Provost Doig's Dead - God be thankit;

Mony a better dog's dead, since he was whelpit."

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

Sir James Carnegie, the third Baronet of Pittarrow, succeeded his

father Sir John Carnegie, the second Baronet, on the 3d of April 1729.

When he inherited the Pittarrow property, Sir James was only thirteen years old. In the following year he became the heir-male and representative of the noble family of Southesk, by the death of James the fifth Earl. Andrew Fletcher of Salton, Lord Milton, and Sir Alexander Ramsay of Balmain, who were guardians to Sir James, were anxious to secure his being brought up with a firm attachment to the Government. The Countess Dowager of Southesk, on the contrary, wished him to be educated under the influence of Jacobite principles, and so anxious was she to have these principles instilled into him, that she offered to be at the expense of his education, if only she could get the boy out of their hands. His guardians, however, stood firm, and determined that he should be sent to the University of Glasgow. They had some difficulty in providing funds to maintain him there, as the whole of his free income during his mother's lifetime was not more than £20 a year; but they succeeded in making arrangements with the Principal, Neil Campbell, to take Sir James

into his house, and to pay particular attention to his education. After Sir James had entered the University of Glasgow, Lord Milton wrote him the following letter of advice : '

Dear Cousine, ' I have received yours of the 23d instant. You are with two very good masters. As to what is proper to be given to the Masters, the principall is certainly the best Judge, and if he think you should give another guinea to professor Dunlop, do it, for you had better save any way as off your Masters. By haveing such Masters, and the favour shoun you by the principall, you have certainly an opportunity put in your hand, of profiteing in your studies, and (missing)

An Encumbered Estates Court was set up with authority to sell estates on the application of the owner or the encumbrancer (person who had a claim on the estate). After the sale, the court distributed the money among the creditors and granted clear title to the new owners. The existing tenants were unprotected by the legislation." The land had been advertised in Dublin and London in 1853, the estate of Magheramore in the Parish of Kilcummin, County Galway which had been divided into 17 lots. John, in 1885 of Moycullen, Galway, purchased at least 3 lots which he later leased:

Notes: Andrew Doig murdered Molly Knapp, a prostitue, in her room at 39 Central viaduct, Cleveland, Ohio on 27 Nov 1900. Doig, a stone mason, was intoxicated and quarreled with the woman about money. He knocked her down and jumped on her until his clothing and shoes were covered with blood. He was in that condition when police found him the next day. Arrested for Murder, Admitted Assault Andrew Doig admitted attacking Mrs. Knapp, but didn't know he had killed her. Cleveland, Nov. 27. - The police today arrested Andrew Doig, a stone cutter, on the charge of having murdered Mrs. Molly Knapp, whose mutilated body was found in her appartments at No. 39 Central Viaduct last night. Doig admitted he had assaulted the woman because she had robbed him. When taken into custody Doig did not know that Mrs. Knapp was dead and supposed he had been arrested for assault. The murdered woman came to Cleveland about two months ago from Detroit. Her husband is said to be an inmate of the insane ward of the Wayne County, Michigan, Hospital. ("The Post Standard," Syracuse, NY, 28 Nov 1900) In 1910 (ED283) and 1920 (ED302) Andrew was a patient in the Cleveland State Hospital for the Insane on Tunney Avenue in Cleveland, OH. He did not marry. He died in the penitentiary while his application for parole was being considered. In about 1999 Andrew Doig's skeleton was donated to a research project. T. Douglas Price, an archaeologist interested in the migrations of people, contacted me (Ken Doig) to try to identify this Andrew Doig. He had his skeleton from the Cleveland collection, one of several. He uses strontium isotopes in human bone and teeth to determine if they have moved or not, and sometimes where they came from. To verify the method it is necessary to have the history on some known individuals. Then the method can be extended to skeletons with an unknown history or before written records.

601 i Margaret (Maggie)11 Shepherd, born abt 1876; died aft 1946. Notes: Margaret was described by Fielding Chippendale (nephew) thus: 'Margaret Shepherd and her mother were regular visitors to Sunnybank. Maggie (Miss Shepherd to us), a dour Scot, arrived each winter, after her mother died, until about 1940. Shepherds had grown copra and 'Sea Island Cotton' on Shepherd Island in the New Hebrides - as it was then. They moved to Mulgrave River (near Gordonvale) to grow sugar. When Kanaka labour was banned they claimed sugar cane growing was impossible so sold out and moved to Sydney. Maggie had sailed around the world 17 times, mainly in cargo ships, and told great tales of far away places. Uncle Jack spent some time with them in the Hebrides. One tale of those days was how she told the locals to catch and pluck a couple of chooks ready for cooking. On investigating a lot of noise on the veranda, found the naked birds in the meat-safe putting on a performance. She and not told them to kill the birds!' She was further described by Alan Harlan (nephew) thus: 'My first bank account showed a deposit of 5 shillings as the first entry. This was a gift from Maggie. She later gave me 5 shillings to buy an Ancona rooster as I had an interest in poultry raising. She was a likeable person although very stern. There was a tale of her holding at bay rebellious natives with a pistol. She was not backward in correcting we youngsters and hated the term 'crikey.' She couldn't tolerate foolishness. When attending the UP Church she gave the minister an hour for the sermon. At the end of the hour she left. One day, at church, she placed a 10/- note in the collection plate and took out her change. Surprising, in her will, she left Aunt Bell 500 pounds and the same to a relative - Mrs. Sweet - in Sydney. The balance to a charity which I believe was the RSPCA! Brother Merv always contended Capt. Shepherd, her father, was a 'black-birder.' I had a great liking for her as she was a 'no-frills' person.' Maggie did not marry.
