Notes for William Doig

      This Doig has not been found in the records. He is here called William based on son Robert's eldest son named William and a son named William. The link between the two sons is based on being in Limerick, Ireland at the same time with families there, and both had sons with middle name Gordon. In Ireland the surname appears as Doig and Duhig. There are likely more children born to this family. Other details suggest this family came from Dundee, this William possibly the one born in 1766 on family file ROBX1620.

      Alexander joined the U.S. Navy on 25 Nov 1861 as Acting First Assistant Engineer, serving for 36 months. He served on the U.S.S. Mercedita in the south Atlantic blockading squadron.  After one encounter, Alexander wrote:

�U.S.S. Mercedita, Port Royal Harbor, January 31, 1863.

Sir: I respectfully beg leave to report the damage done to the boilers and machinery during the action of this morning and the present condition of same.

The enemy�s shell penetrated the engine-room bulkhead on the starboard side about 5 feet abaft the steam chimney, striking the port one and carrying away at least 4 feet of the outer shell.

The steam immediately escaped from the boilers and filled the engine and fire rooms, thereby leaving the machinery in a useless condition.

On examination of the starboard boiler I found that by closing the connections steam might be raised on it sufficiently to work the engine at a slow rate, which was done, in obedience to your orders.

It will require a further examination before I shall be able to report on the present condition of the boilers, to make which the coal must be removed from the side bunkers.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

A. Doig, Senior Engineer

Captain Henry S. Stellwagen, U.S.S. Mercedita.�

      In Mary's will dated 11 June 1873 she bequeathed all her estate and personal belongings to her only daughter, Isabella.  She declared that she did not do this, �out of any ill will or want of proper maternal affection towards my two sons but from a consideration of her sex, her unmarried condition, her not having been brought up to any trade, the dangers and temptations to which she would in consequence otherwise be exposed.� [probate 4 Oct 1877, Surrogate Court, Brooklyn]  She also left Lot 18693 in Green-Wood Cemetery, where Alexander and Christopher were buried, to her three surviving children Isabella, Robert, and William.

In 1900 and 1910 she lived alone, a tenant at 202 9th Street, Brooklyn, NY. A hand-written letter sent by Isabella Doig to her cousin, Hugh Doig in 1870. "Brooklyn August 26 1870 My dear cousin Hugh                       It is a long time since we have heard from you but do not think that because I have not written, that we have forgotten your family for mother takes a deeper interest in yours than in others.  Since I last wrote to you I have received letters twice from uncle and aunt Dean; in the last one I learned that one of their sons, Henry, and his wife have arrived in New York a few months ago not knowing how near Brooklyn was to N.Y. and starting the next day after their arrival for the west, we were disappointed in not seeing them.  A short time ago uncle Dean sent mother a carte of each of the members of his family and to me a package of cartes of myself copied from the one you lent them.  They seem to have a very interesting family, both sons and daughters. I hope aunt, your mother is better and that brother and self are well.  During the Winter and Spring we were alone the greater part of the time for brother Robert's work called him from home but this Summer he has nothing to do so we had him constantly with us. We have had a very warm Summer for days the intense heat seemed almost unendurable; mother was constantly ill while it lasted; as she is naturally inclined to be stout it was very trying for her.  Willie has had vacation for some time past; the school generally has had from six weeks to two months every year; this agrees with him wonderfully well as he is very fond of sports especially the water; it is never too hot for him to do without one or two swims a day; if I could only make him as fond of his books, as of these I tell him I would be satisfied, it is hard work to make him sit still long enough to learn any thing. He resembles father more than any of the members of our family.  I have not heard from aunt Bella for along time, have you heard anything lately.  I had some of father's cartes taken lately of his pictures, they are excellent copies.  I will include one with this letter.  I looked carefully through your last letter and shook it out to find your carte but could not see it, did you forget to put it in?  Cousin don't wait for me to write if at any time you have the least inclination and time do it; never mind tiring yourself about a respectable letter, write anything.  I am so careless about writing I don't think I take pen in hand half a dozen times in a year to write letters.  We are all well and desire to be remembered to all.  When you write will you please say New No.590 Hicks St., Brooklyn, N.Y.  I must close now with love to you from very truly your affectionate cousin Bella C Doig" Isabella died at age 72. She was buried qith her parents in Green-Wood Cemetery, Lot 18693, Section 9.  The probate records show that she died intestate, and that the value of her property was $7,000. The petition of Elsie D. Parsons of June 24, 1919 for letters of administration for the estate of Isabella C. doig lists the following a her next of kin: Mary Sprattler, niece, Patterson, NJ.

Notes for Catherine Jane Doig

      Catherine's birth reported in Ireland on some census and in Scotland on other census. On her prison record she reported her birth on 26 July 1826 in Leith, Midlothian, Scotland. A family legend says she was a runaway from a castle. The link to father is based on Catherine Jane Brack as a witness at the marriage of her brother William Doig with the other witness Robert Gordon Doig.

     

      In 1861 Catherine Doig (36 Ireland) was the wife of Christopher Brack at 33 Collier Street, Greengate, Salford, Lancashire with 7 children. She was not in the household in the 1871 cenus.

      Notes by Chris Doig:

PENAL RECORDS of CATHERINE BRACK (nee Doig)

     

      Catherine had several aliases: Catherine Brack, Elizabeth Hodson, Elizabeth Scholes, Catherine Doig and Catherine Scholes.  These display a lack of imagination on Catherine�s behalf - she used her married name, her maiden name and the name of her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Hodson.

     

      1871

     

      This first record shows that Catherine was a charwoman aged 49 years.  She was married to Christopher Brack with whom she had nine children.  She was convicted for larceny in Salford involving the stealing of thirty six yards of linen cloth, the property of John Button, for which she was sentenced to seven years at Fulham Prison followed by seven years police supervision.  On admission to Fulham she was described as having good health, 'indifferent' conduct' and she could read and write imperfectly.  She was 5ft 2.5 inches, weighing 130 lbs, with sallow complexion and dark brown hair.  She had lost all upper front teeth and had several distinguishing marks including a scar of left wrist and a cut on right temple.  It says she was Church of England.

 
The record shows she had previous convictions in 1864 for stealing ten handkerchiefs at Salford for which she was sentenced to 2 months, in 1866 for stealing one shirt at Salford for which she was sentenced to 3 months, in 1867 for stealing 5 yards of calico for which she was sentenced to one month, and in 1869 for stealing 6 yards of flannel for which she was sentenced to one year.

In prison Catherine was employed as a knitter and cleaner.  The papers record each application she made to the Prison Governor - these are heartbreaking - for example - in May 1872 within 6 months of her arrival in Fulham she applies 'to ask if she might shake hands with her children when they visit her'.  The application was refused by the superintendent although later granted by the Prison Director.  In November 1872 she asks for special paper to write to her children - which was granted 'under special circumstances'.  In May 1873 she asked to be removed from her duties as cleaner in the Chapel - refused.

 
The records also list her prison offences - 1873 for baking 2 large pies on the stove in the old laundry for which she received one day's confinement, in 1874 for having a light burning in her cell at 4.45am also for having a candle, some pieces of lucifer matches and other articles concealed for which she received 3 days close confinement and 21 days separate confinement. 

Her medical history only shows a black eye and bruised cheek from a fall whilst in Millbank Prison before being moved to Fulham in 1871. The record lists each letter she received and sent.  It is interesting to see that she wrote to her husband on only one occasion in 1872 although he died in 1874 so perhaps he was in poor health.  She sent and received regular letters from some of her children.  During the whole period she was in prison she appeared to have one visitor in May 1875, presumably from her children.


She was released from Fulham under licence in 1875 to the refuge in Russell House in Streatham.  

1878

The second penal record shows Catherine had returned to Salford where she was up to her old tricks.  In March 1878 she caught for stealing three shirts, the property of John Dring.  She was sentenced for 10 years and a further period of 7 years police supervision.  She was still being described as a charwoman, now a widow with nine children, aged 56 years 9 months.  The record shows that she was a �Dissenter� as regards religion.

     

      On admission to Woking Prison, she was dark complexion, grey hair, brown eyes, 5ft 1.5 inches, and slight build. She was said to have ears pierced, slight scar on right side of face, and lost all teeth but one.  She was classified as being weak and having a malformed chest and 'v.v.leg' whatever that is, and fit only for light work.  Her occupation in prison was needlework. 

In  December 1882 she sent a petition to the Secretary of State - praying for some mitigation of her long and painful sentence, pleading that she is 60 years of age and that her family are anxious and willing to receive her before her health utterly fails.  The petition was refused on account of �no grounds�.

     

      In July 1884 she broke the rules by throwing two parcels containing tea leaves and stewed meat to C.H. 154 Wilson in the Messroom.  She was punished by making her forfeit her berth.  In December 1884 she was caught having a light in her cell for the purpose of cooking at 12.45pm.  She was given 7 days separation in the penal ward and to forfeit her special class.

     

      Catherine was released on licence in December 1884.  She died 14th January 1888.

     

      It is interesting from a family history point of view that Catherine told the Authorities that she was born on 26 July 1826 at Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland.  Now, obviously we don't know if the information is correct, but it is the very first clue we have as to where to the family may have come from in Scotland.

Notes for Christopher John Doig

      In 1841 Christopher Doyge (15 Lancashire) was an iron smith residing at Bk Ln Street (Back Lane), London Road, Manchester. He was an engine smith.  The family lived for as short time in Liverpool where sons Hugh and Alexander were born. In 1848 he was a mechanic at 52 Bradford Road, Manchester. In June 1850 they lived at 5 Russell Square, Hulme, Lancashire. In 1851 Christopher [Day] (26 Scotland) was a smith residing at 46 Lloyd Street, Hulme with his wife Christiana   (27 Liverpool), sons Hugh (2 Liverpool) and Alexander (10 months Liverpool), and a lodger Robert Doig (14 Liverpool), apprentice joiner. In 1852 he was a blacksmith at 56 Juniper Street, Hulme.

     

      They then moved to Brazil where Christopher worked in a job maintaining the English Naval Fleet, which was based there. The family legend is that after the birth of their son Christopher in Brazil in 1852, Christopher Sr. ran away from his domineering wife and the children by jumping on a ship; he was supposedly never again seen by his wife or children. A Mr. Doig sailed as a passenger on the ship "Nancy" from Oporto, Rio de Janeiro and arrived at New South Wales, Australia on 17 Dec 1853.

     

      However, in 1861 Christopher Doig [Deig in index, age and place of birth not given. name "X"ed out] was an apprentice white smith residing in the village of Ness, Cheshire, England with his wife Christiana (37 Liverpool) and sons Hugh (12 Liverpool) and Christopher (8 Liverpool). It appears he had already departed.

     

      Christopher sailed on the "Hibernia" on 7 Mar 1868 from New York and arrived at Glasgow on 21 Mar 1868.

     

      Chirstoper returned to Brooklyn in 1868, and in 1869 he lived with his brother Alexander at 406 Hicks, Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY.

     

      Christopher committed suicide by an overdose of laudanum, six days after his brother Alexander had died.  He was placed 23 Apr 1869 in a receiving tomb until the ground thawed for burial.

Notes for Christiana Mackay

      In 1841 Christine Mackay was a field servant living on Tysen Street, Islington, Liverpool.

     

      After being abandoned by Christopher, Christiana and the 3 boys did not stay in South America long.  The death certificate of the second son, Alexander, shows that Christiana must have returned to England with the boys by April 1855.  She settled in Ness, a hamlet near Neston in the Wirral to be near the families of her brother, John Mackay, and her married sister, Ann Cabry, where they ran the village pub, the "Wheatsheaf" and a farm.

I am a historian of the Florida Keys and looking for information on Robert Doig, who appears on the muster roll of U.S. steamship Mohawk in 1860. The ship was at Key West, Florida and had captured a laden slave ship, bringing it into Key West. Many of the Africans aboard the slaver died there; I discovered their cemetery. I'm trying to find the experiences of those involved. Will trade a copy of the muster roll for any information. Thank you in advance for your time.

Dear Mr. Doig [T. Alan Doig in NY]

      I am tracing my family on my paternal side, and this may be of some interest to you.  During my research I came across this cutting in the BMD in the Wallasey News for the year 1957.  This is my research so far!

      My g. father B. 1855 Alexander Doig, 1877 married Ada Kirby in Chorlton Manchester.

      My father B. 1877 Frederick Kirby Doig in Chorlton Manchester, married Alice Elizabeth Lowson in Liverpool 1900.

      I am trying to trace any more children born to Alexander and Ada.  Some of the names I have unearthed are Florence Doig B. 1874, Ellen Doig and Moll Bohanna nee Doig who died in 1914 aged 22 years.  The Doigs were all in the booking and accounting business.

      Enclosed the cutting and I would be pleased to hear from you.

                                                                                                                                                                              Yours sincerely

                                                                                                                                                                              Lilian Holly Lee (nee Doig)

Notes for Rev. Hugh Doig

      Some of his early years were spent in Pernambuco, Brazil.  Returning to Liverpool he worked in a shipping office.  He always cherished the hope of being a clergyman, and at last, after a lay-readership in the Liverpool parish and theological training at St Aidans College, Birkenhead, he was ordained in 1872 by the Bishop of Durham.  Of this happy event, speaking 30 years after, Mr Doig said; "The day I was ordained I felt there was noone in the world with whom I would have exchanged callings, and now after 30 years in the service of the Church of England I bless God that I was nurtured in it".

     

      Hugh�s first curacy was that of Esh, a mining village, near Durham.  He once rushed in between two sturdy colliers, who were fighting for a wager, one of whom declared that he would make daylight through him if he did not mind his own business; but the fight did not come off.  The colliers soon got to know and like him, and he used to recall the happy days and nights he spent among them.  From Esh he went to St. Georges Church, Bolton, a busy town parish, where he broke down in health through overwork.  Thence he sought a less laborious sphere of work in a country parish of Eccelston, where he remained seven years.

     

      In 1881 Hugh was the Curate of Eccleston residing at Hyham House, Eccleston in Chorley, Lancashire with his wife Sarah Ann, children Joseph G., Gertrude, Florence, Lilian, Harold S., a servant Louisa M. Blackstone, age 17 from Croston, Lancashire, and a visitor Mary A. Ridzard, age 42 from Leigh, Lancashire. [Note: He is incorrectly recorded in the census as Hugh Day.]

     

      In 1883 Bishop Fraser appointed him to the benefice of Saddleworth, where he labored until 1911 when health reasons compelled him resign, to his great regret.  On one occasion, speaking after 20 years' connection with Saddleworth, he said that no parish can ever be to me what Saddleworth has been.  The time may come when I shall find myself unequal to the task of traversing the hills and valleys of Saddleworth and shepherding the people who live on and in them, but I cannot contemplate parting with my people without a pang".

     

      In the 1891 census Hugh was Vicar of Saddleworth reising at the Vicarage with his wife Sarah and children Florence, Ada, Jessie, Ellis, Ernest, and Hugh.

     

      Hugh had been in a controversy, the split the parishioners of Saddleworth down the middle.  It caused Hugh sufficient distress to seriously affect his health from which he never fully recovered.  It started in 1898 when Hugh "applied for a faculty" (i.e. submitted a proposal) to change the layout of the church.  At the Vestry meeting of 18th February 1898 twelve voted for the proposal and twenty against.  It was re-submitted to another meeting on 18th July 1899 when fifty-two voted for and fifty-four voted against.

     

      In 1901 Hugh was a clergyman in Saddleworth with his daughters Florence and Jessie.

     

      The book on the "History of the Chapelry and Church of Saddleworth" records that "There was nothing in the application that any reasonable Churchman  could take exception to.  Nothing was intended which had not been accomplished in scores or hundreds of other parish churches, with advantage and ultimate general approval.  Much of the opposition was factitious and unintelligent, most of it genuine.  In course of time without precipitation, approval would have been gained".  It continues, "But the Vicar, about this time, had the misfortune to make a commendatory reference to Dr. Pusey and the leaders of the Oxford Movement in one of his sermons, from which moment began a general and overwhelming opposition to what was conceived to be a preliminary move in the direction of a Romanised Church".

     

      The application for the Faculty was successfully opposed and the situation became worse.  "Mistakes, no doubt, were made on both sides.  The Vicar attacked and replied to his opponents in the Parish Magazine.  The local newspapers of the times testify to the high feeling and general interest in the number of letters, pro and contra, published in the correspondence columns.  The affair had a marked effect on the Vicar's health, from which he never made a complete recovery.  Through all this trouble, and, as it now seems, useless rancor, he never lost the respect and affection of parishioners."

     

      "Had Mr. Doig sought his faculty later it is possible that he would have obtained it.  On more than one occasion, his people subsequently proved  in substantial fashion their regard and esteem, which after all, is the greatest and most enduring victory to have achieved.  Owing to failing health Mr. Doig resigned the living in 1912. "

     

      During the last few years of his ministry, Hugh took several long breaks, presumably to help restore his health.  In 1906 he sailed to Madeira and Teneriffe. Theyn in 1908 he took Sarah on a long holiday in the Canary Islands, and on their return to Plymouth, he did not rush back to Saddleworth and his work. Instead, they traveled on to spend three weeks in Torquay, sufficient long for Hugh to request his mail to be addressed there. It would appear from Jessie's postcard collection that they spent another three weeks at Torquay.

     

      In the summer of 1910, Hugh and Sarah visited their son, Ellis, in Canada.  They crossed the Atlantic in the steamship "The Virginian" sailing from Liverpool to Montreal. Ellis had been living in Canada since 1906.  To meet him, Hugh and Sarah took a five-day train ride on the Canadian Pacific Railway across the continent to Vancouver.  When it came time to return, Ellis escorted them back to Montreal and they visited Toronto and Niagara Falls.  The whole journey lasted about 3 months.

     

      In the following year, Hugh and Sarah went to Switzerland where according to a postcard they saw an airship crash down into Lake Lucerne.

     

      In the 1911 census Hugh lived in Saddlesworth with wife Sarah Ann and children Jessie Mary, Ellis Christopher, Ernest Theodore, and Hugh Norman.

     

      In 1912 on his retirement, Hugh moved with the family to Sunny Mount, Parbold where he lived until his death in 1918.  He is buried in Eccleston Church.

     

      During his retirement his health gradually failed, and at the age of 70, on the last day of the old year, he passed peacefully to his rest and joy, freed now from the trammels of his afflictions.  He is mourned by a widow and nine sons and daughters.  His mortal life is over, but he lives on in the hearts of those he leaves behind, and in the hearts of all those who remember him as a faithful pastor, a loving friend, and a wise counselor.

     

      The Probate of Hugh's will was £2335 5s 0d, of which he left £200 to his wife.  The rest had to be invested by his trustees, Joseph & Harry Hobson, and the income given to Sarah during her lifetime.  He laid down strict rules what they could invest in - they had to derive an interest of at least 3% and no investment had to made in Ireland.  On Sarah's death, the estate was to be spilt amongst his children.  The only other specific bequest was that of £600 for the maintenance and accommodation of the sons, Ernest and Hugh, whilst they were graduating at Durham and Oxford Universities.

one especially so - undoubtedly the best photo I have ever had taken.  (He took a photo of me & my 2 other fellow workers outside our cookhouse yesterday.  Nothing fresh.  All love, Ernest. 8/7/1917                                          Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique Military Band                                                                                           None  My dearest E.  Nothing much has been happening lately.  My time is well filled in & the work I am on (the Sergeants Mess) keeps me going all day long.  I scarcely ever finish before 9pm from 6am.  However work is the best thing for keeping healthy.  There was a concert here last night which was quite good.  I am preaching tonight.  Lassie, take care of yourself.  All love, Yours Ernest. 6/9/1917     Erenst Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Edessa Kipri                                                                                                          None  My dearest Emmie, I was where the children are on this card last Saturday.  It all looks very nice & picturesque, but we all long for British scenery again & English people.  I was up just after 3 am this morning.  A convoy of casualties came in & I volunteered to assist.  It is all in a days work.  I intended writing Mother a letter today, but I can see it is not going to come off.  I must write a card, though.  All love, Ernest. 30/9/1917                                                                         Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Edessa Moulin a eau                                                                                           None  My dearest Emmie, I started on another job yesterday afternoon.  I am now working on the water section.  Twice a day I go round the hospital with a water cart drawn by 2 mules & driven by an Algerian (French Colonial Troops) filling great barrels.  I like the work all right & hope to be on it for some time.  I am preaching tonight.  I was able to get to Holy Communion this morning.  I hope to be able to get to this place one afternoon this week.  We call it Vodena, not Edessa.  There is a rumour that we are going to start drill again this week.  If so, I expect it will be at nights - it is too hot during the day.  I received Mother�s parcel the other day & a very nice parcel it was.  Have finished my work for today.  I have only to ? for quinine at 5.45pm.  All love, Yours, Ernest. 1/10/1917                                      Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique -

I did ?. very near this White Tower when I returned from Malta.  My work on the Water Section finished this morning & I am on G.D.O. again - the best job in the place.  Of course it is dirty & hard & we work now through the heat of the day.  I told a Nurse yesterday when she asked me if I would not prefer to be working in a ward that I was on the best job in the place.  There are very few men who like being in the wards.  Reveille is now at 6am,so we have another ½ hour in bed.  All love, Ernest. 9/11/1917                                                                         Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Edessa Prefecture                                                                                               None  My dearest Lassie, I have written to Minnie & I do hope that I have been able to help her.  I wish I could come to you all.  I am going to write to Kitty now that it seems quite certain that Alan has been killed.  I have had a splendid sleep before coming on duty tonight.  What do you think of this joke which was in the Balkan News?  I think it excellent.  It is so true. �From a Dublin journal we take the following:� �Chatterton Road Church; Evening Subject� �Salonica; its first Church� �Mrs Vissom will sing �Entreat me not to leave Thee!� �If Mrs Visson lived here she might have to change her tune.�  Lassie, nothing fresh yet.  I hope by this time you have managed to get to Ashton.  All love, Ernest. 10/10/1917          Ernest                                                                                                                  Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique - Lemonade Merchant                                                                             None  My dearest Emmie, just another card.  One of the Welsh boys died last Saturday night or early Sunday morning at the 36th.  He was buried last Sunday in the afternoon.  I went to the funeral.  T.L. Davies (one of the Unit - a congregational minister who used to be in Sheffield) took the service.  I started a letter to Mother last night & I expect it will be several nights before I finish it.  I am writing them an account of our trip to Vodena last Thursday & I am writing it in a humorous strain.  She might possibly send you the letter.  I have been �runner� today - otherwise going messages here and there.  I have been to an aerodrome etc etc.  �Lists Post� just blown so must be off.  Love Ernest. 12/10/1917                                               Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Edessa Rue Centrale                                                                                          None  My dearest Emmie, It is almost a fortnight since I have heard from you, but we are expecting a mail every day.  I have been on convoy again today.  I find it quite interesting.  I have finished my long letter to Mother.  It is all about my last trip to Vodena written from the point of view of an unseen spectator or companion.  Mother might send you the letter on although I have not asked her to do so.  It has been much hotter again today.  I hope you receive these cards.  All love, Yours, Ernest. 14/10/1917                                                                                                                  Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique -

well, I would not like to live here.  I took service yesterday morning & then went off to bed.  Tonight & the last few evenings have been great.  The moon is almost full and as light as the day.  Greenway is at Salonique again on duty.  I asked him if he saw any nice beads (pale pink) to buy some.  There was a mail in today, but only received a Church Times.  Another Welsh Co boy died last Sunday at the 36th & was buried yesterday.  He died of malaria.  A week ago or so he seemed in perfect health.  I hope to write you a letter in a day or so & tell you some good news.  Don�t think I am coming home.  No space on here to tell you about it.  All love & kisses, Ernest 2/11/1917                            Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique- Le quais                                                                                                   None  All Souls Bay:  My dearest Emmie, just another card.  This is the 14th picture postcard I have sent you since returning.  I wonder if you have received them all.  Will you let me know, Lassie?  I managed to get to Holy Communion yesterday & hope to get at 6.45am this morning.  By the way, Sweet, I have sent you another £4 which I hope you will hear about before long.  I could have sent you a little more but have put in for 60 drachmas for myself.  60 drachmas = £2 10s.  I am so glad I can send you money like this & I hope to send you much more before very long.  This money has but one end in view, and I expect you can guess what that is.  Greenway tried to get me the kind of bead you wished to have when in Salonique but could not.  Perhaps I will have better success.  Nothing fresh so will close.  All love & kisses, Ernest. 6/11/1917                                                         Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique Panorama                                                                                               None  My dearest Emmie, it is just about 4.30am.  Many thanks for 98th letter (dated Oct 14th) & 99th (dated Oct 15th), both of which I received yesterday.  I also had the Church Times & a letter from Ken Harris�s sister.  You will remember I wrote to Ken�s mother shortly after Mother told me Ken had been killed.  Ken was killed on 31st July.  A tiny piece of shrapnel struck Ken behind the ear & penetrated the brain.  Ken never knew his death because it was instantaneous.  He had been out in one of the worst parts of the Line - the Ypres Sector - for over 2 years. There had been an attack - the communication line had been broken & Ken & another man went to repair it.  Yesterday, Greenway went into hospital.  I have heard nothing further yet about going away but expect it will be soon.  I was weighed last Saturday & was just 9 stone, of course that is with 2 or 3 lbs weight of clothing on.  Emmie, all my love & kisses, Ernest.

your 101st letter (dated 21st Oct) last Friday afternoon (9th Nov).  I also had a letter from Dick Hargreaves with a cutting from a B�pool paper about Bob Brocklebank being killed in action.  I am taking Matins this morning, I don�t expect I shall get to Church tonight.  I have written both to Minnie & Kitty.  I expect they will receive the letters before you get this card.  I have sent a Balkan News to Mrs Healey.  By the way let me have Annie Ward�s address & any others whom I might send a Balkan News to.  It might interest them.  Nothing fresh, all love, Ernest.

Maxedorus                                                                                              None  My dearest Emmie, here is a card of a Turkish mosque.  I had a look inside one the last time I was in Vodena.  I did not go right in because I think they don�t like it & there were too many Turkish priests knocking about.  In fact they had just finished service & out of a congregation of 8 or 9 about 6 were priests.  This I think is the 18th card I have sent you since returning to Salonique.  Never have I seen lightening like last night.  It was magnificent.  It seems to be in great pale blue sheets & lights up all the mountains just for a moment.  Flashes were every 2 minutes or so.  The rain did come down, but now the weather is all right again.  Hope to have another letter soon.  All love & kisses, Ernest 17/11/1917                                      Ernest

being under canvas when the wind blows.  For almost 3 hours I have been tightening up ropes etc & the limp being blown out every minute or so.  Seven of the smaller tents are down.  It is fearfully cold tonight & sitting still a while makes it seem even colder.  One of my German boys is very ill suffering from dysentery.  Oh!  He is thin, Lassie.  You can�t imagine it possible that a person could live when so very thin.  I am going to Salonique probably on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday for an interview with the Principal Chaplin.  Everything seems fixed up now.  I am awfully tired & sleepy & am having great difficulty in keeping my eyes open.  All love, Ernest. 26/11/1917                                     Ernest

card I can send you of Vodena.  I have one more but I am afraid it would not be passed by the Censor since it is a card of the Railway Station.  Yesterday afternoon I was out with Greenway & we took several photos.  I saw an aeroplane come down.  The aviator was coming down purposely, but his landing did not come off & the aeroplane came down with an awful smash, & all the framework was smashed.  Hundreds of pounds gone in a few moments.  Fortunately neither the pilot nor observer were killed.  In fact they were not even hurt.  Greenway and I rushed up half expecting to find them both dead & horribly mangled, but neither of them got anything worse than a good shaking.  Nothing fresh, all love, Ernest.  Have had no mail now for a fortnight.

afternoon we had a very exciting football match against the 36th Hospital.  It resulted in a draw - 2goals each.  I have heard nothing more about going away.  I printed and fixed some great photos yesterday including 2 or 3 of Malta.  Kent said in his last letter to me that he wished he was back in Malta with me.  What a grand time we did have there!  I must have about 150 photos now & they will make a fine collection.  There are very few I can send you because the censor would not pass them.  I do feel sleepy.  Goodbye, Darling.  All love, Ernest. 2/12/1917          Ernest

service also & preached.  I am taking Holy Communion next Thursday.  I enjoyed reading the last magazine.  I always find it interesting.  The Concert party here are getting up a revue for Christmas.

Last Saturday I received a nice parcel from the Davidsons - 2 tins of toffee & a tin of chocolate.  Then again a person insisted on my taking a parcel yesterday - just as this person had received it so I am very well off & am well provisioned.  I received a letter from Mrs Tom Webster 2 days ago.  I had sent her a Christmas Card with my photo, just like the one I sent you.  Well, she does not think it at all good.  She writes �you say it is very like you but my word you have changed.  It is not like Mr D. that left the Moss (this refers to Marton Moss, 2 miles south east of Blackpool).  I can see hardship on your face.  I shall not know you if you come back looking so thin & ill, but perhaps it is the hot weather.�  Thus the difference of opinions.  You think it is good & so do I.

a remarkable thing for a sister or a nun to say.  However there are good ones amongst them.  It will soon be our Godchild�s birthday (Ellis�s son, Alec).  I wonder if you are still in Ashton!  Much love & kisses, Yours, Ernest. 28/2/1918                                            Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None                                                                                                                  Constantinople La Grand Cimetiere                                                                                     None  My dearest Love, I have only one more card of Constantinople left which I will soon send.  Your holiday at Ashton will soon be at an end.  Ellis badly wants you to go down to London later on.  He has asked me to persuade you to go saying that you will do anything for me.  My knee is much better again.  I had to report about it on Tuesday & 2 X-ray photos were taken of it.  I have heard nothing more.  I shall be quite all right in a day or two.  All love.  Yours, Ernest. 2/3/1918   Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None                                                                                                                  Constantinople Mosque de Top-Hane                                                                           None  My dearest Emmie, here is my last card of Constantinople.  I am finding the little stove you sent me months ago very useful.  The 36th are giving us a Concert tonight.  The Concert Party is known as �The Gadgets�.  Our Concert Party call themselves �The Duds�.  I had tea with Dawson the other day at the 36th.  Things seem very quiet at present.  I expect you are back in Blackpool once more.  I wrote to Ellis the other day for Baby�s birthday.  My thoughts keep going back to Malta.  I was happy there.  Kent wishes he was back there with me.  Gob Bless the lad!  I wish I could show you the letter his mother wrote me.  All love, Ernest. 7/3/1918                                                                                                                  Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique Dous Apotres                                                                                          None  My dearest Emmie.  I expect you will have received my letter in the green envelope.  This card is of the Church of the Twelve Apostles.  (The following text was censored)  Nothing fresh.  Ernest. 13/3/1918                                                       Ernest Emmie                                                                                                                  None  Salonique Eglise St Sophie                                                                                    None  My dearest Emmie.  So I arrived down here yesterday evening.  The march from the station was very tiring.  I found sleeping on the ground again very hard although I had a good night.  I don�t know where I shall be sent from here or how long I am likely to be here.  Greenway is also with me.  The same address as before when I was down here �R.A.M.C.

Descendants of

1. David Maxwell1 Doig, born 1790/92 in Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland; died 13 Apr 1858 in Chorlton, Lancashire, England. He married on 5 Jan 1812 in St. Margaret, Rochester, Kent, England Mary Caddy, born abt 1791 Of Ireland.

Notes for David Maxwell Doig
David enlisted in the British Army, 36th Regiment of Foot on 20 Oct 1814 at Chelmsford, England, soon deserting. He re-enlisted in the 20th Regiment of Foot on 20 October 1815 at Arundel. His discharge papers state, "20th Foot Regiment - David Doig born in the parish of Pennywick in or near the town of Pennywick in the County of Midlothian was enlisted for the aforesaid regiment at Arundel in the County of Sussex on the 20th day of October 1815 at the age of 26.....served 4 years and 278 days. Served to 36th July 1820. Discharged in consequence of: - Ruptured"

The muster rolls for the 20th Foot, which are very detailed, almost month by month, show that he was stationed in Ireland from his re-enlistment in the army. From Dec 1818 to Feb 1819 he was at Fermoy. Then from Mar 1819 he was on the way to St. Helena. He was discharged on his return from there. The regimental records of admissions to pension state that the pension (6 pence per day) was granted on 26th July 1820.

7 Sept 1821 - Petition of David Doig, County Roscommon, requesting police employment: Letter from David Doig, Boyle, County Roscommon, formerly lance sergeant in 20th regiment of foot, to Alexander Mangin, first clerk in civil department of Chief Secretary's Office, Dublin Castle, 7 September 1821, enclosing petition of Doig to Charles Grant, Chief Secretary, Dublin Castle, requesting employment in police establishment, preferably in King's County [County Offaly] or County Westmeath. Emphasises his military conduct in the marine service and the 20th regiment. States that his pension is insufficient to support his family. He was hired and noted in the following news articles and others:
----------------------------------------------------------------
Cork Constitution - Saturday 29 July 1825:
On Monday, Serjeant Doig and five Policemen were attacked by a violent mob, in the parish Turlogh, near Castlebar,while making seizure of an illicit distillery. The Serjeant was deprived of his carbine, and three of his teeth knocked out, two others lost their bayonets, and all more or less injured. Two of the Countrymen were dangerously wounded.

Dublin Evening Post - Tuesday 29 December 1829:
MAYO, Castlebar, Dec. 24.—0n Surday evening last, St. C. O’Malley, Esq., and William Lewis, Esq., C.C.P , received private information, that two brothers, residing in the neighbourhood of Beltra, were the persons guilty of the murder of Mr. Nolan, of Glanhest, despatched Serjeant Doig, of the Police, and party of that corps, with a warrant, to the above village, near which place they met two men who gave themselves false names; but, being known to some of the party, were taken into custody, and interrogated as to the murder. One of them said he was present when the circumstance occurred, but did not fire the shot—he then named the guilty person, upon which, Serjeant Doig returned to this town, and lodged the fellows in Jail, and then proceeded Ballinrobe, where he arrested the principal, and lodged him also in safe keeping, both to abide their trials the next assizes.

Mayo Constitution - Monday 22 August 1831:
A young lad named James Wilson applied to their Worships for an order to compel the payment of one shilling due him for a considerable period by Mr. Steven Joyce. He had obtained decree for it, and when he applied to Mr. Joyce, he told him that he had paid it to Mr. O'Malley's clerk, and afterwards that he had paid it to Serjeant Doig, but neither of these persons had received it. The Magistrates directed decree for the amount, with the costs which the complainant had incurred.

Dublin Morning Register - Tuesday 20 September 1831:
Police Sergeant Doig baa been dismissed from the Mayo constabulary force, for improper conduct.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

His pension records show that during the 1846 period David moved into and out of Manchester area, particularly between Manchester, Dumfries, Carlisle and Hull. Being, as he claimed, a land surveyor we think that he was engaged in the building of railways (the Dumfries to Carlisle railway was opened in 1850). This was the boom time for railway building. We know that he had various addresses in Manchester during this period and he may have been based in Manchester ever since he left the army. What attracted him to Manchester in the first place we do not know, unless he had relatives there. Certainly it was at this time that it was beginning to expand with the industrial revolution. It is possible that Robert Doig (an engineer) (Chris ancestor?) who was the father of the first wife of David Doig (son of David Maxwell Doig) was David Maxwells brother and living in Manchester.

In 1843 he was a dyer residing on Pump street, Salford. In 1845 he was an assistant surveyer residing at 9 Pump Street, Salford, having moved to 19 Rodney Street, Salford by 1848. In 1850 and 1851 David Maxwell Doig, land surveyor, was still at 19 Rodney Street. In 1852 David Maxwell Doig, land surveyor, lived at Oldham Road, Newton Heath, Manchester. In 1854, 1855, and 1856 David Maxwell Doig, land surveyor, resided at Railway Cottage, Hulme Hall Lane, Newton Heath, Manchester.

Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser - Saturday 16 November 1850:
Fatal Railway Accident at Miles Platting.An inquest was held on Friday, at the Railway Inn, Newton, on the body of Joseph Fiddler a railway guard, who came by his death through some accident or negligence of a pointsman. The first witness examined was William Maskill, of Levenshulme, a clerk in the service of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company, at the Miles Platting station. He said:On Tuesday night, about twenty minutes before seven o'clock, a goods train was proceeding from the Miles Platting station to the station at Ardwick, and I got upon it to go upon the engine to my own home. James Shaw is the driver, and Burton Wild the stoker; and deceased was the guard upon the train. There was no other person with the train when we were in sight of the points where the line branches off to Asbton and to Ardwick. I saw the pointsman hoist the white flag, as a signal for the engine to come on : the engine did go on, but on arriving at the points, instead of taking to the Ardwick branch, it took to the Ashton line, from some cause which I cannot explain. 1 did not notice the pointsman at that time. As soon as the driver saw tbat he had gone along the Ashton line he reversed the engine, and it stopped. I and the driver and the stoker then got off and went back a little; and I inquired for the deceased, whom in a few minutes we found lying on the Ashton line not far from the point. The stoker raised him up and he gave a sigh, and that was all. In a few minutes the pointsman came up, and asked if be should go to the station. He went there for Mr. Phillips, the station master, Miles Platting, who came down to the spot. After we had passed the points I felt a slight jerk, but cannot say what from. After Mr. Phillips came, he sent mo to the engine house to procure further assistance; and on my return the body of the deceased was placed in sling, and carried to the Railway Inn, where it now liesOther witnesses were called, and deposed to facts in corroboration of the above; and from the whole evidence we gather that the pointsman had neglected to turn the points in time; that finding out his mistake, he ran to repair his error, but only turned the points after the engine and nine carriages had passed them. Three other carriages remained, and these were turned on the Ashton line; and the jerk thus occasioned threw off the deceased, who was killed by the trainThe jury, after a deliberation of about three-quarters of an hour, returned a verdict of manslaughter against David Maxwell Doige, the pointsman.

On 7 Dec 1850 David Maxwell Doig was found not guilty of manslaughter in Liverpool, Lancashire.

Hello listers,
My first posting looking for relatives of a Len and Doris (Hettie)
WATSON, who may have lived in the Brighton le Sands area near Crosby.
Len had a sister named Ada Emily DOIG(Doeg) nee Watson, born 1896, who
lived in Flixton, Urmston, along with her husband Edward. She passed
away in 1979, her husband in 1968.
Len's wife Doris (nee MILLER) grew up in Forest Gate, West Ham, Essex.
After marrying Len she moved to Walthamstow, where Len was a Butcher.
Len was also know to have flown in RAF during WW2.
Doris's mother Keziah (also known as Catherine) MILLER (nee MALES),
lived with Len and Doris until her death in March 1960. After this point
Len and Doris moved to Brighton .........something...
I have not found them in Sussex, and with Len not having much family
himself I am hoping to find them in Brighton le Sands or possibly New
Brighton, near to where his sister was. I am also pretty sure that both
Len and Doris have passed on.
So....looking for rellies anyone? Doris's brother's james and John
Miller both went to NZ in 1924-1927. They never saw each other again.
Incidentally, Doris's father John MILLER died on board the HMS Cressy

Sharon....in NZ.
