Notes for Charles Chree Doig

Charles' birth certificate does not include a middle name. In Lintrathen parish where he was born a Rev. Charles Chree D.D. (1827-1893) became the Minister where his parent's attended church about that time.

Charles was educated at the Braes of Coul village school. Aged 14, he received a prize for ¿Arithmetic, etc.¿ and a year later for ¿General Scholarship¿. After having left school (probably in 1870), he started working with Mr. John Carver in Meigle. Carver was a well-known architect in the area.

In 1881 Charles was an unmarried civil engineer living at Wester Quarter, Alyth with his aunt Jessie Steel, a widow and laundress, age 55 born in Glenisla. In 1882, Charles and his young family moved to Elgin, where he became assistant to Mr. H. M. S. Mackay, a land surveyor. After becoming a partner, Charles took over the business, and developed himself into an architect and civil engineer. In or around 1908, the business became C.C. Doig and Sons. In 1891 and 1901 Charles lived in Elgin, Moray with his wife and 3 sons. Charles is famous for his whisky "pagodas."

On the 25th [28] September 1918, Charles was out shooting on the Dallas moors together with his youngest son Alexander. He became unwell and was taken to the village inn at Dallas. Although everything was done to try and save him, he died that same day. In his obituary in the "Northern Scot and Moray & Nairn Express" it was written: ¿Additions and reconstructions were extensively undertaken by many distillers of Highland malt whisky, and in all this work the services of Mr Doig as an architect were very much in demand. All over Scotland and in the north of Ireland his work was well-known, and in the course of his professional career he formed many warm friendships among the distillers. In matters of arbitration and valuation he was much in request, his keen business ability, combined with fairness of judgement, being readily recognised.¿

An extract of Charles' Will reads: Charles Chree Doig, Architect and Civil Engineer, Gordon Street, Elgin, died 28 September 1918, at Dallas Village, testate. Confirmation granted at Elgin, 25 February, to Mrs. Margaret Doig, William Howie Doig, Architect, Charles James Dick Doig, Architect, and Alexander Lawson Doig, C.A., all of Gordon Street aforesaid, and Donald Mustard, Solicitor, Elgin, Executors nominated in Will or Deed, dated 20 November 1914, and recorded in Court Books of Commissariot of Elgin, 24 February 1919. Value of Estate, £45,419. 1s. 11d. The will was sealed in London on 10 Apr 1919.

After Charles¿ death, William and Charles Jnr. continued the business and the Doig archive at the Elgin Library contains 1237 plans, dated between 1859 and 1965, from C.C. Doig and Sons. Just over 500 of these plans have a date prior to Doig¿s death and among those are designs for farms, hotels, rifle ranges, schools, breweries, drill halls, country houses, cemeteries, inns, a golf course, copper works, railways, a harbour, churches, rope works, water supplies, a hospital, and the list goes on.

And distilleries of course, almost 100 of them. According to the Doig archive inventory list, the first distillery that Doig was involved with was Glenburgie, in 1881. But the distillery that will always be most linked to his name is Dailuaine. Doig was involved with Dailuaine from 1882 onwards, and the most significant moment came on the 3rd of May, 1889. Mackenzie & Co., the owners of Dailuaine, commissioned Doig to make alterations to their maltings, with the specific aim of improving the efficiency of the chimneys at drawing off the peat smoke.

Obituary: The Herald, Tuesday 23 December 1997

The Very Rev Dr Andrew Beveridge Doig, born September 18, 1914, died December 21, 1997

THE Very Rev Andrew Doig, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1981, embodied and sustained two of the strongest traditions of the Kirk amid political and cultural change. In the most literal sense, he served for more than 20 years as a missionary in Central Africa. After his return home he became the leader of the Bible Society movement in Scotland in an age of new translations but diminished congregations. He also went back on visits to Malawi, notably in 1983 as a ''special envoy'' in a Kirk bid to prevent the execution of President Banda's opponents, Orton and Vera Chirwa. Andrew Beveridge Doig was born in Carluke, son of a railway clerk, but grew up as a Glaswegian, educated at Hyndland School. He graduated in Arts and Divinity at Glasgow University and then did post-graduate work at the Union Theological Seminary in New York. At Broomhill Church in Glasgow he had been guided towards a vocation for the ministry and was influenced as a student by the notable evangelist D P Thomson. Encouragement from his mother ensured he become a missionary. Shortly before the Second World War he was ordained and went as a district missionary to Nyasaland, where an independent Presbyterian Church had already evolved from the missions of the Auld Kirk, the United Free Church, and the South African Dutch Reformed Church. Changes were accelerated by the war in which many Nyasa men served abroad with the King's African Rifles. Doig accompanied them as an army chaplain to Ethiopia and Kenya. In 1946 he entered Nyasaland's Legislative Council, which had a traditional ''missionary place'', and in 1953 found himself a Member of Parliament in the ill-fated Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. He resigned in 1958 over a discriminatory franchise Bill. ''I was convinced federation was a mistake and couldn't be saved. It was clear it had to be unscrambled,'' he said. Doig first met the emerging leader of Nyasaland (soon to be Malawi), the returned exile and Kirk elder, Dr Hastings Banda, in 1951 and found him ''always authoritative''. Yet in the early phases of independence he thought this ''father-figure'' (as he called him) gave Malawi cohesion. But when in 1983 Doig went as a Kirk ''special envoy'' to intercede for the life of Banda's opponents Orton and Vera Chirwa, the increasingly dictatorial and resentful president refused to see him. The death sentences were commuted but Orton Chirwa died in jail in 1992. Doig had left Malawi before formal independence. He came home to be minister from 1962 to 1972 at John's and King's Park Church, Dalkeith, before serving for another nine years as general secretary of the National Bible Society of Scotland. He also took a leading part in the worldwide work of the United Bible Societies, serving as an executive committee member for Europe. In 1981 he was a popular and benign Moderator of the Kirk's General Assembly and undertook an especially exacting year of tours and visits. That summer he took part in the wedding at St Paul's of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Glasgow University conferred a doctorate of divinity on him in 1974. Andrew Doig married in 1940 Nan Carruthers of Glasgow, who died in Nyasaland in 1947. In 1950 he married Barbara Young, head mistress of the Church girls' school in Blantyre. He had a daughter by his first marriage and a son and daughter by his second.

Notes from "Eighty-Eight years at Sayward-Kelsey Bay and Port Neville, Hardwicke Island," by Frances Duncan (Courtenay, BC:, Argus, date?), pp 45, 48: "May 1st of 1903: "S.E.W. Showery nearly all day. Doig called during the day. In the afternoon Bergland and Johnson came over from their camp." (Johnson and Berland were Swedes. They had a little steamer which burned wood and bark for fuel. They logged over on Vancouver Island. The place was called 'Bergland's Cove.' They were frequent visitors.)" "Saturday, May 16th 1903: "W.W. About 10 am Fraser, Pope and McMillen came down from Fraser's camp. I went out to the 'Cassiar' with Pope. Bob Brotherton and another man landed. All had supper. Got a letter from Alex Burchett for his Dad which I gave to Doig to take over. Wind still blowing this evening and all hands propose staying all night. They did stay, Fraser and McMillen in the house, Bob and the other man occupied the cabin." "Another old timer, Mr. Ebenezer Doig, nicknamed "the Professor," had come out from Glasgow, Scotland, many years ago. He told many interesting tales of his "hobo" days. Once when travelling in the States with a companion, they stopped overnight in an empty house. When the daylight came the next morning, they saw a sign reading "Pest-house" and got out pronto. He really was a fine, educated man and came from a good Scotch family. He took up, that is pre-empted, the place next to ours; but it was lonely there so he spent most of his time in one of our cabins. He went to Rivers' Inlet fishing in the summer and trapped here in the winter. He killed quite a number of cougars. Mr. Doig called his boat "Lib" after his sister. He passed away in Vancouver at a ripe old age. (Another fisherman Jack Wilson, a Dane was with Doig a great deal.)" Ebenezer died of gangangrene of the scrotum and atrophic cirrhosis of the liver. The later problem is typical of alcoholism. .

Obituary: The Herald, Tuesday 23 December 1997

The Very Rev Dr Andrew Beveridge Doig, born September 18, 1914, died December 21, 1997

THE Very Rev Andrew Doig, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1981, embodied and sustained two of the strongest traditions of the Kirk amid political and cultural change. In the most literal sense, he served for more than 20 years as a missionary in Central Africa. After his return home he became the leader of the Bible Society movement in Scotland in an age of new translations but diminished congregations. He also went back on visits to Malawi, notably in 1983 as a ''special envoy'' in a Kirk bid to prevent the execution of President Banda's opponents, Orton and Vera Chirwa. Andrew Beveridge Doig was born in Carluke, son of a railway clerk, but grew up as a Glaswegian, educated at Hyndland School. He graduated in Arts and Divinity at Glasgow University and then did post-graduate work at the Union Theological Seminary in New York. At Broomhill Church in Glasgow he had been guided towards a vocation for the ministry and was influenced as a student by the notable evangelist D P Thomson. Encouragement from his mother ensured he become a missionary. Shortly before the Second World War he was ordained and went as a district missionary to Nyasaland, where an independent Presbyterian Church had already evolved from the missions of the Auld Kirk, the United Free Church, and the South African Dutch Reformed Church. Changes were accelerated by the war in which many Nyasa men served abroad with the King's African Rifles. Doig accompanied them as an army chaplain to Ethiopia and Kenya. In 1946 he entered Nyasaland's Legislative Council, which had a traditional ''missionary place'', and in 1953 found himself a Member of Parliament in the ill-fated Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. He resigned in 1958 over a discriminatory franchise Bill. ''I was convinced federation was a mistake and couldn't be saved. It was clear it had to be unscrambled,'' he said. Doig first met the emerging leader of Nyasaland (soon to be Malawi), the returned exile and Kirk elder, Dr Hastings Banda, in 1951 and found him ''always authoritative''. Yet in the early phases of independence he thought this ''father-figure'' (as he called him) gave Malawi cohesion. But when in 1983 Doig went as a Kirk ''special envoy'' to intercede for the life of Banda's opponents Orton and Vera Chirwa, the increasingly dictatorial and resentful president refused to see him. The death sentences were commuted but Orton Chirwa died in jail in 1992. Doig had left Malawi before formal independence. He came home to be minister from 1962 to 1972 at John's and King's Park Church, Dalkeith, before serving for another nine years as general secretary of the National Bible Society of Scotland. He also took a leading part in the worldwide work of the United Bible Societies, serving as an executive committee member for Europe. In 1981 he was a popular and benign Moderator of the Kirk's General Assembly and undertook an especially exacting year of tours and visits. That summer he took part in the wedding at St Paul's of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Glasgow University conferred a doctorate of divinity on him in 1974. Andrew Doig married in 1940 Nan Carruthers of Glasgow, who died in Nyasaland in 1947. In 1950 he married Barbara Young, head mistress of the Church girls' school in Blantyre. He had a daughter by his first marriage and a son and daughter by his second.

Notes for Florence Sullivan

Florence emigrated in 1879 from a place called Rathmore on Cork/Kerry Border Ireland.

Children of Mary Ann Fyfe Dow and Florence Sullivan were as follows:

74 i Daniel Giles6 Sullivan, born 18 Jul 1882 in Watlham, Christchurch, New Zealand; died 8 Apr 1947 in Wellington, New Zealand. He married on 23 Nov 1905 in St Mary's Anglican Church, Merivale, New Zealand Daisy Ethel Webster, born abt 1884. Notes: Daniel Giles Sullivan was born on 18 July 1882 at Waltham, Christchurch, the son of Florance (Flurence) Sullivan, from County Kerry, Ireland, and his wife, Mary Dow, from Dundee, Scotland. They had a large family and were comparatively poor, with Florance working as a labourer and a carter. As a child Daniel assisted the family by selling newspapers. His formal education ended at the age of 11 when he passed proficiency after attending the Marist Brothers¿ and St Mary¿s schools. However, he continued to read voraciously, particularly in social history and the biographies of philosophers, politicians, explorers and scientists. He worked for a year in a market garden and was then apprenticed to learn french polishing. After completing his apprenticeship, he headed for London in 1900. Sullivan made the journey partly to improve his trade skills, but also to visit places he had read about, and to learn more about the labour movement. He sold his own hand-made furniture door to door in Melbourne and other Australian cities to raise his passage to Britain. There he was at one stage reduced to sleeping on the Thames Embankment in London. He later maintained that his political career was strongly influenced by a determination to prevent the kind of poverty he witnessed overseas from developing in New Zealand, and by the dedication of British trade unionists. He also visited northern Ireland and North America. He then returned to Christchurch, where, on 23 November 1905, he married Daisy Ethel Webster. Although Sullivan was a staunch Catholic, they were wed at the Anglican Church of St Mary in Merivale. Sullivan attributed his early interest in trade unionism to the influence of a foreman active in the Christchurch United Furniture Trades Union (CUFTU). He had gained his first elected office, secretary of the committee organising the union¿s annual picnic, at 16, and had briefly been a delegate to the Canterbury Trades and Labour Council. He held at various times the posts of president and secretary of both the CUFTU and the New Zealand Federated Furniture Trade Union, and was elected vice president (1907, 1909 and 1910) and president (1911) of the Canterbury Trades and Labour Council. He served on the executive of the Trades and Labour Councils¿ Federation of Labour, and in 1914 he was president of the United Federation of Labour. Two years earlier he had begun writing on labour issues for the Lyttelton Times. From 1915 to 1920 he was a journalist with the Christchurch Sun, and in 1919 he published Dan Sullivan¿s Magazine. He helped found the Christchurch Journalists¿ Union, and was adept at arguing cases through the industrial conciliation and arbitration system. Sullivan joined the Independent Political Labour League of New Zealand in Christchurch after hearing James Thorn speak during the 1905 election campaign. He became a regular weekend speaker in Cathedral Square, and in 1908 was the league¿s president and electoral candidate for Avon. Although a ¿close student¿ of the writings of Karl Marx and Henry George, Sullivan later claimed to have been particularly influenced by the ideas of Michael Flürscheim, a German advocate of land nationalisation. The budding young politician was moderate labour, both by principle and temperament. He favoured industrial arbitration, advocated limited businesslike state ownership to promote competition, and supported land settlement through improvements in rural conditions. Sullivan joined the league¿s successor, the first New Zealand Labour Party, and was its candidate for Riccarton in 1911, cycling many miles in the evenings after work to address meetings in country areas. He was secretary of the conference that formed the overwhelmingly moderate United Labour Party of New Zealand in 1912, and then accompanied other moderates into the Social Democratic Party, being its Avon candidate in 1914. He served on the Christchurch strike committee in 1913. During the First World War he was on the executive of the Christchurch Patriotic Committee and on the local Citizens¿ Defence Corps, although he opposed conscription. In 1919 Dan Sullivan finally won Avon for the second New Zealand Labour Party. He represented it for the rest of his life. During the early 1920s he was prominent in the largely Christchurch-based moderate opposition to Harry Holland in caucus, supporting the leadership challenges of Lyttelton MP James McCombs and making one himself. He was, nevertheless, Labour¿s senior whip (1921¿35). A strong anti-communist, Sullivan was a supporter of guild socialism during the First World War, and was influenced by Catholic thought on co-operation between social classes. This led Ormond Wilson, a fellow Labour MP, to refer later rather carelessly to his ¿ideas linked with fascism¿. Sullivan served on the Christchurch City Council (1915¿1923 and 1925¿31), heading the poll on four occasions. He chaired the council¿s Housing Committee, helping to develop a scheme whereby funds borrowed by the council were lent on mortgage to prospective homeowners. He also chaired the Finance Committee (1927¿30). Elected mayor in 1931 after an unsuccessful bid in 1923, Sullivan strove to alleviate poverty and maintain order in Christchurch during the depression. While supporting a conservative financial approach by the Labour-controlled council, he worked hard, typically with non-Labour notables, to raise funds for the relief of distress, interviewing thousands of people and frequently helping them personally. Significant violence occurred, nevertheless, mostly during the 1932 tramway dispute, which he struggled to resolve. In 1936 he reluctantly decided that the mayoralty was incompatible with a heavy ministerial load in the first Labour government. Sullivan was always a strong advocate for manufacturing in New Zealand, publishing two booklets on a local leather industry (1916, 1918) and one on post-war reconstruction (1918). As minister of industries and commerce (1935¿47) he tried to develop new industries and was sometimes frustrated by limited progress. Exchange control and wartime shortages presented new opportunities, and Sullivan enthusiastically fostered these as minister of supply (1939¿41) and of supply and munitions (1941¿47). The close relationship he developed with Australian ministers helped in this. Sullivan was also minister of railways (1935¿41), and in charge of scientific and industrial research (1935¿40 and 1941¿47). He acted intermittently as minister of finance, and from 1942 accepted the onerous responsibility of minister in charge of stabilisation. During 1944¿45 Sullivan represented New Zealand at the Chicago International Civil Aviation Conference and visited Canada, Britain, Ireland and Egypt. While visiting New Zealand forces in Italy, he typically insisted on speaking personally to each of the 850 wounded New Zealanders in a military hospital at Bari. As a Cantabrian he had a special interest in the wheat industry, and negotiated a favourable arrangement with Australia in 1945 when the wartime policy of self-sufficiency was abandoned. Sullivan ranked fourth in cabinet until M. J. Savage¿s death in 1940. He considered contesting the succession, but deferred to caucus¿s choice of Peter Fraser. Thereafter he ranked third, serving in the War Cabinet for its duration, as deputy prime minister in 1942 and as acting prime minister for some months in 1942 and 1944. He was physically sturdy, but his punishing workload almost certainly contributed to his failing health during the mid 1940s. Sullivan still looked surprisingly youthful in his 50s. Cartoonists distinguished him by his shock of dark curly hair, and particularly one lock that hung down over his forehead. A teetotaller, he was a strong supporter of prohibition, using the slogan ¿For Labour, for temperance and for the Empire¿ during the 1914 election compaign. He was involved with the New Zealand Alliance for the abolition of the liquor trade in the early 1930s. He was given an honorary title by Ngai Tahu, partly for assisting with their land claim. Dan Sullivan was liked and respected across the political spectrum for his personal warmth, conciliatory nature, integrity, humanitarian ideals and hard work. He died of coronary disease at Lewisham Hospital in Wellington on 8 April 1947. Some 15,000 people filed past during the day his body lay in state in the Civic Theatre in Christchurch, and his funeral was attended by vast crowds. He was survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.
