b. INTRODUCTION THE WHITSON FAMILY CREST (collection of Bruce CATO) (This is also the crest of the family of Sir Thomas B. WHITSON, save for their motto 'Coelitus vires' 'Strength is from heaven': the Baronage of 'Angus and Mearns'). The College of Heralds notes: The surname WHITSON was first recorded in Scotland in 1369, when William QUHITSONE was appointed baille of the town of Perth. Since then the name has become particularly associated with the county of Roxburgh where it is generally WHUTSON and whare indeed scholars differ as to the precise origin of the name. Some contend that it is a patronymic being derived from the personal name of the father of the original bearer and signifying simply "son of WHITE" while others favour a baptismal origin with the name being ascribed to one who was born on Whitsunday. ... References after 1369 include the witnessing by John QUHYTSON of a charter i Inuerpetery in 1454, and the leasing of lands of Le Peblis (Peebles) in 1484 and again in 1498 by Thomas QUHITSONE. Thomas WHITSON was notary and writer in Kirktoun of Ratray in 1688, and another Thomas WHITSON was an important burgher of Dundee in 1823. ... In 1774 one of the passengers on the ship DIANA bound for Maryland was Elizabeth WHITSEN a 19 yeard old mantua maker. Notable bearers of the name have included Sir Thomas and Lady Mabel WHITSON of Prestonfield House in Edinburgh. Sir Thomas wa an eminent County Alderman and Justice of the Peace, Deputy Lieutenant of the County and Fellow of the Royal Society in Edinburgh. The arms described below were awarded in 1912 to the WHITSONs of Blairgourie and Brechin, whose family included David WHITSON (1827-1896), a solicitor, and Henry WHITSON (b1893), killed in 1918, and Ronald Shiress WHITSON, a Lieutenant in the Royal Scots Dragoons. BRAZON OF ARMS: Azure, the sun in his splendour, argent, a chief ermine. CREST: An arm in armour endowed, holding a broken lance, all proper. MOTTO: Dominus fiducia mea = My trust rests in the Lord From the fourth version of "THE WHITSON FAMILY" by Sir Thomas B. WHITSON, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, (unpublished manuscript): CREST: as above MOTTO: Coelitus vires = Strength is from heaven ( the Baronage of'Angus and Mearns').
"The tradition in the family handed down is that there were three Norwegian brothers who, in the old Viking days, came over in their galleys and remained in Scotland. One landed in the estuary of the Tay, one in Berwickshire, and the third in Galloway. He who landed in the Tay was called QUITSON, as near as the sound can be spelt, although the name really was WHITSON - the son of White. (The name is pronounced Quhitson in Shetland today - 1935)." For general background reading on the County of East Lothian where Robert WHITSON's ancestors are from, try your librarian eg:- PREBBLE "1000 Years of Scottish History" ANDERSON, William "The Scottish Nation" 3 vols. Edinburgh 1878-80 DONALDSON, Gordon "Church and Nation through 16 centuries" Edinburgh 1960 SMOUT, T.C. "A History of the Scottish People; 1560-1830" London 1969 GRAHAM, Henry Grey "The Social Life of Scotland in the 18th century" 4th Ed. 2 vols. 1937 MACKENZIE, Agnes Muir "Scotland In Modern Times, 1720-1939" 1941 A complementary account of Robert WHITSON's family is given in "The Merchant Princes of Princes Street" by Nola EASDALE, Civic Trust, Auckland City Council Press (1980). Sadly, Nola died 18.2.2013. For ease of reference, I have given every person a number. For example, 123 is the third child of 12. His or her fourth child will be 1234. (Sometimes I have had to guess the order of birth). The first edition (of 100 copies) of this family tree with many old photos was prepared in haste by me under the title "The Family of Robert WHITSON, Brewer" for the first N.Z. WHITSON Family Reunion held on March 10-11th, 1978, at 29 Princes St., Auckland, the home built in 1869 by George JOHNSTONE and his wife Elizabeth WHITSON (342). See Appendix 3 for details. The second edition of 100 copies (12?.5.1978), besides having a more accurate title, has many extra photographs and details. Some people have been renumbered (the children of 34214, 342152, 3434312, 3429), but to avoid too much confusion I decided to retain the earlier numbering for people born before 1900. For example, I have since discovered siblings to 2 older than him, but have not renumbered him. Some of the IDs in Appendix 1 may not have been corrected: 3 Thomas WHITSON m Mary SHIELS had ID 1 34 Rbt WHITSON m El FENDER had ID 11, so 342 El WHITSON m Geo JOHNSTONE had ID 112. Let me know if you see some of these errors. - 21.2.2007.1. OUR WHITSON FAMILY TREE

d. DATES When known, the dates and places of birth and death follow each name. For example 346 3-Elizabeth WHITSON (30.09.1840 Leith,Scotland-18.10.1899 Makaraka) However the first date/place will be the christening or baptism date/place if before c1830.
e. THE NUMBERING SYSTEMS (i) The number at the start of the line indicates his order of descent from the initial couple "0 0-Thomas WHITSON" and sp-Agnes HOGG". For example their 3rd child is 3 1-Thomas WHITSON, farmer. His 2nd child is 34 2-Robert WHITSON (24.3.1805-26.11.1883) His 6th child is 346 3-Elizabeth WHITSON (30.09.1840 Leith,Scotland-18.10.1899 Makaraka) Her 3rd child is 3463 4-Jessie Grahame JOHNSTONE (13.04.1868 Logie,Perth,Scotland-23.09.1959) and so on. The 10th child of 34221 is 34621 (10) 6-Helen 'Lavinia' TOMBLESON (18.11.1934 Otoko) Note the gap inserted every 5th digit for ease of reading numbers more than 5 digits. (ii) The generation number precedes the name. For example the "4--" in 3423 4-Jessie Grahame JOHNSTONE (13.04.1868 Logie,Perth,Scotland-23.09.1959) indicates she is 4th generation. So to see who her siblings are one can either scan for adjacent "4--" or scan for 3421, 3422, 3424, .... Generally a spouse's generation number is not given. However for a second marriage it is sometimes given (for example "m2 4-sp-") as an aid to finding their spouse above.

An extract from "Auckland - city of the seas" by AW REED. p108 refers to the period 1866-1869: As we enter the next decade, let us take a glance at the popular New Year Sports held in Mr WHITSON's paddock near his brewery. Cash must have been plentiful, for admission for those on foot was 1/-, on horseback 2/6, while 5/- had to be paid for a single horse trap - no small price for those days. It was a Scottish occasion & a reminder that Scotsmen were well represented amongst the Settlers, for the crowd was regaled with leaping, single stick, putting the Stone, tossing the caber, tilting, Highland dancing, vaulting with the pole, quoits, & bagpipe playing. (The paddock referred to was on the corner of Queen St & Victoria St West where the Civic Theatre now stands.) His first brewery in Auckland was at Hobson Bridge, Newmarket formerly a flaxmill owned by Mr. WHYTLAW, where the Electoral Rolls record Robert as living in 1867-77. On 26.11.1868 his son Thomas (349) married Fannie DEACON at Robert's dwelling house at Hobson Bridge."Hobson's Bridge" was the intersection of Khyber Pass Road & Parnell Road

They record that his first 4 years (in New Zealand) were in farming, in particular growing the "Whitsondean hops" at Mahurangi, that he had been brewing for 32 years (16 years In London), and that "the site is behind the Coach & Horses Hotel, near the present building of Messrs. WHITSON & Co." (The Strand Arcade, Queen Street, has a plaque to show the spot where it stood.) The Daily Southern Cross 1-12-1870 p3. "...It had been his desire & that of his sons throughout to do all that was possible to improve the class of beer which they had sent out... On his arrival here, instead of commencing the brewing business, he went into the country, & spent a good deal of his time at the Pa, which his friend, Mr FARMER, well knew. He had brought out a good many things to commence brewing with, but nothing would do but farming. He put all his money .. in the wilderness for some time. He spent 4 years at the farm before he came down to Auckland... At Mahurangi he found he could grow hops very much superior in flavour & stronger than those imported.. THE BALL Shortly before 8 the extensive building again became a scene of animation. The 2nd floor was tastefully decorated for a ballroom. At 8 dancing began with a quadrille... Next followed a polka, lancers, galop, polka mazurka, lancers, schottische, galop, Circassian circle & a Scottish reel. By this time 12 had arrived & the company retired to supper, which was spread in the upper storey of the building...

A fire occurred about ten o'clock this morning at the malt kiln attached to Messrs Whitson & Sons' brewery, Parnell Road. The kiln was built of brick, and was situated about ten yards from the main building. The fire was discovered by D. Muir, who attends to the drying of the malt, and who states that a charge of about fifty bushels was put on last night, but the fire was not lighted until this morning. About ten o'clock he went in to turn the grain, when he observed a portion of the matting to be on fire. He at once went for water and assistance to extinguish the flames, but on returning found that the fire had extended to the malt, and the smoke was so thick that it was impossible to enter the building. Attention was then directed towards preventing the fire from spreading to the brewery, and water was thrown freely over that building. In this work Sergeant Walker and four constables, who had been at once despatched from town, rendered valuable aid, and were assisted by Messrs WHITSON and JOHNSON. The wind was blowing in the direction of the brewery, but the fire, by the exertions mentioned, was confined within the four walls of the kiln. The roof of the kiln was destroyed, also about fifty bushels of malt. The building was the property of Messrs. Brown, Campbell and Co. paperpast - Daily Southern Cross, Volume XXVIII, Issue 4588, 8 May 1872 & Auckland Star, Volume III, Issue 724, 8 May 1872 The following persons are objected to as not being entitled to have their names retained on tho List of Voters for the Electoral District of Parnell: 615.

It stands on the plot of ground fronting to Lowe St & Read's Quay, for some time forming the garden to Dr NESBITT's late residence. It is 70' long by 26' wide & consists of ground floor & 2 upper stories. At 1 end is a kind of tower 46' high with flights of steps leading to the upper portions. Surmounting this tower are ventilators to convey away steam from the boiling tuns. Close to these are the reservoir, malt copper, & American hoisting apparatus driven by the engine for lifting the malt & hops to the top flat. .... All the newest improvements have been made & added to the establishment under the personal superintendence of Mr WHITSON senior. .... Now comes the fervent short & pithy grace "Here's luck" & for ourselves looking thru a glass of Messrs WHITSON's Auckland brew as we have just done, we cordially wish them the success in their undertaking that their pluck & enterprise undoubtedly merit."

She tells the story: Beginning with the official party a large gold cup with a lid is passed from gentleman to his partner, the lid first being removed by him. He bows as he offers it to his partner who, after wiping the edge with a napkin, also drinks, first bowing and receiving a curtsy from the lady. Whilst the sword hand is employed in handling the cup, the next door neighbour rises and stands back to back with the one drinking, in order to protect his back from dagger thrusts. to rise at the right moment, without turning one's head to look is the tricky part of the procedure and the only one causing me any apprehension. I noticed, however that one or two very important people, who were in danger of losing their cue, were prompted with the most discreet whispers from footmen who were carefully watching in the most unobtrusive manner that all was au fait. Each table had its own cup and as there were 400 guests, the tables radiating out from the official or top one, the ceremony was delightful to see. The orchestra was softly playing "Drink to me only with thine eyes" the whole while.' Molly had a very old photo album mostly of AINSLIEs. * 1978 at Unit 31, 19 Robe Street, St. Kilda, Melbourne, Victoria.

A beneficiary of the will of her sister Louisa WHITSON, ID 34(10) below. m 9.2.1865 by Rev. R McKINNEY of Mahurangi at Hobson Bridge,Auckland to sp-George JOHNSTONE (31.1.1839 Stirling,Scotland- 16.8.1886 Makaraka) George (1839-1886) attended Edinburgh University and arrived in Auckland in 1861. He and Elizabeth went to Scotland in 1865 to attend to the estate of his father. On returning to Auckland in 1869 George worked with his father-in-law as brewer in the family firm of WHITSON & Co. Their carriage had a footman and its harness had silver-plate. George sold his Albert Brewery interests to the WHITSONs in 1880, and in 1881 went to Gisborne and started his Gisborne Brewery in opposition to Mr. W.F. CRAWFORD who had purchased the Gisborne WHITSON Brewery in 1875. In 1882 George was in partnership with L.G.DIREY in the business of JOHNSTONE & DIREY: land, stock, station and general commission agents. George moved his family to Gisborne in 1882. The No 8 stone china dinner set they brought out from Scotland had 96 dinner plates alone. The set was split equally among the children of their first son George. They had 10 children. George JOHNSTONE perhaps in his 30s. And another ex Keith JOHNSTONE perhaps in his 40s. Is this from the St Andrew's Masonic Lodge? Their first three children (3461-3463) were born in Scotland. They returned to Auckland 1868-9 where their other 7 children were born, the last one in 1881 at their house at 29 Princes Street, built in 1877. An old photo of Government House in the foreground (now party of the university) with 3 houses on Princes St. The one on the left is Number 27, home of 325 Thomas and Lisa WHITSON. The one in the centre is Number 29, home of 346 Elizabeth and George JOHNSTONE. George was another founding member of the St. Andrew's Lodge. Their carriage had a footman and its harness had silver-plate. He had a fine shell collection. They moved to Gisborne in 1881-3 possibly to supervise the building of WHITSON & Co.'s brewery there. The site where the brewery was built on the corner of Read's Quay and Lowe is occupied in 2005 by a building with a date of 1928 inscribed on the face. (The Gisborne Herald, about July 1976 records that Capt. Geo. Ed. READ's cottage, built about 1867 at 126 Peel Street, Gisborne, is to be the first building in Gisborne's colonial village complex; it was rented by Major WESTRUPP, then Dr NESBITT the magistrate; then let to WHITSON & Co., then to the employees of W.F. CRAWFORD, who built the original breweries in Gisborne and became mayor in 1877. I gather CRAWFORD later bought this brewery from the WHITSONs). See `Breweries of Gisborne' (1995) by Ian JOHNSTONE, Dunedin. CRAWFORD was a keen amateur photographer, his legacy is over 5,000 photographs that are in the archives of Gisborne's Tairawhiti museum. See http://www.tairawhitimuseum.org.nz/faqs/default.asp This photo of the brewery was taken 1884 by CRAWFORD. Reproduced with permission. The next 3 are from Geoff KINGMA from the Tairawhiti Museum, Crawford Collection http://www.tairawhitimuseum.org.nz Here is the brewery's site plan - in the museum behind glass.

George died 16.9.1886 and Elizabeth 18.10.1899 (or possibly 18.8.1900) at Makaraka, Matawhero. Derek JOHNSTONE ID 34615 2 has his paper of Commission as a Captain in the No. 2 Company of Auckland Naval Volunteers 9.9.1872,& his naval sword. These 2 are scanned with permission from p27 & p29 of Nola EASDALE's book. Derek also has some of his hand painted stone china with a coat of arms on it, the JOHNSTONE family bible, and a ring with the JOHNSTONE Crest - a spur between two wings. MOTTO: NEVER UNPREPARED It is said that this is to symbolise the days when their ancestors were border thieves Alexander TODD (34633) had a sugar basin with the motto on it as part of a dinner set brought out from Stirling which had 96 dinner plates alone. The set was split equally among the children of their first son, George (3461). Here is a photo of Keith's share of the dinnerset. Keith (ID 3461 7) had some of his grandfather George's old books, including a Greek book he had at Edinburgh University, and others back to 1779. Jessica TODD (ID 34631) has a silver snuff-box presented to John JOHNSTONE in 1839. They had 10 children ID 3461 to 346(10) below. Is this a photo of him?

Miss Whitson is the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Whitson, a grand-daughter of the late Mr. Robert Whitson, who was one of the pioneers of Auckland. Mr. Fred. Murray is probably the best-known man in athletic circles in Auckland. The Rev. Canon MacMurray performed the ceremony, the bride being given away by her brother, Mr. Robert Whitson.

In 1905 he was selected for the All Blacks and was nicknamed "Butcher". (His nephew Jack MURRAY -a dentist and graduate of Otago- was picked for the 1938 All Blacks but due to an injury was unable to play.

Earlier he opened the first chemist shop in Rotorua where he pulled teeth and mended broken arms. (His father John Mitchell MURRAY (1838-1910) was MP for Matakana: the Maori put a boom across the bay to stop his entry; he was headmaster c1860 at Hamilton East which he opened; they used to hide when Hone Heke walked thru their property at Matakana; the local Maori wanted to kidnap him as a boy for his fair hair.) (His father's father jumped ship from UK and bought a schooner he used to trade between Russell and Australia.) They lived at Cowie Ave., Parnell, Auckland near the Institute for the Blind. They owned a house at the fare end of Rocky Bay, Waiheke.

A hand-coloured photo of Lisa a few years before her death - now held by me.This photo LOST! is of Anna and Ngahuia at her graduation."A Fairy Tale" was written for her 1883, probably by Rev. R McKINNEY, vicar at Mahurangi: Once upon a time there was an old old man & an old old woman - & they lived in a country very very far away east of the sun & south of the earth. And they were very poor as perhaps has to be expected - for the old man made his living by standing up in a great box periodically & telling people their faults. Now as the people paid him for this, or rather paid him for pretending to tell them their faults, it did not on the whole fare very well with him. He sometimes poor silly old man -.. - told them these faults too plainly -especially when he thought they were hypocrites - & the result of it all was that he was poor. One day .. he told his wife `I had better go up to the big city & buy clothes & meal & other things for ourselves & the children.' And the old woman said `Do go for the meal is all done & the children's clothes are getting threadbare & ragged.' Now there was in the country in which these old people lived - which was called the .. of Antipodes - a great big city called the Land of Auck, & to this city the old man went. And he journeyed to it over the sea, & he travelled in a great big ship, which was driven forward by a friendly monster, which as it drove the ship, hissed & roared & snarled & belched forth from its burning lungs huge volumes of thick black smoke. And the souls of the people travelling were terrified, & some of them sickened nigh unto death, went to the .. of the great ship & brought up from their innermost parts the food that they had partaken of, & cast it forth into the yawning deep. But the old man was not sick. At last however the ship arived at the Land of Auck, & the old man went ashore, & he wondered at the great big houses he saw there & at the multitude of people he saw walking as it appeared to him idly about. For in the country he came from nobody walked about. In the mi.. all were busy the live long day, some in ploughing up the land, some in felling the old forest, some in burning & uprooting the stumps of the old trees which had grown on the land for centuries. And the old man envied the lives of the people of the Land of Auck, whose lives, so it seemed to him, were free from care; yet he wondered how they lived. The old man however, went to the town, & as he walked through it he saw many old friends, several of whom instead of greeting him as they used to stared strangely at him. And he wondered what this could mean, & he at first fancied that it was because he was poor; but at last he remembered the true reason. It was because his beard had grown long & grizzly that the poeple knew him not. At length the old man came to a street called the street of the Princes & it was filled with grand palaces as befitted its name. And the old man went up to one of the most beautiful of these palaces, & he rang a bell, & a young maiden, all wreathed in smiles & beautiful to look upon opened the door to him, & ushered him into the presence of the charming princess, who owned the palace. And the princess welcomed him as heartily as though he were the richest man that ever was in all the world, & the little children of the princess .. upon him .. him, & said how glad they were to see him, & asked him why he had not brought with him some of his children. And the poor old man after all his travels & the perils of the deep, felt at home & happy. So he lived in the grand palace for many days, & was feasted on the best, & he went out into the markets, & the great shops, & he bought the clothes for his wife & his children, & he laid in a large store of meal & other things to keep his children from want when the cold winter came. And he spent all his money & more; for some of the things he bought in the grand shops he bought on tick, & he had no money left to buy trinkets for his poor old wife & his dear little children. And he was sorry for this, for they lovved the trinkets well. And he went to bed sad & sorrowful & he .. there are now no fairies & no wishing caps. And it was the beautiful .. of his stay in the Land of Auck. But in the night he fancied he heard the pattering of little feet, & he dreamed that perhaps the days of the fairies had come back again. And in the morning he awoke & found that what he dreamt was no dream. The fairies had been there, & their little feet had pattered, & their little hands had come, laden with the choicest gifts. The room of the palace in which the old man slept was strewed with them. There were silken scarfs for his old wife & for his little children all sorts of the most valued & charming presents. And the old man rose up, & gazed at them, & his heart was glad. And he left the palace that was in the street of the Princes, & he bade farewell to the Princess herself, & her little children, & he returned home, & as soon as he arrived he opened out his fairy treasures. And his old wife & his little children thought they never saw anything so beautiful, & they blessed the fairies & they rejoiced greatly. And there was joy from that day to this in the house of the old man, & it was remarked that when he sood up to speak to the people, in his big lap the hard lines of his old face were loosened, since he spoke softer things than he had been wont to speak for many a day afterwards. ------------------------------------------ This fairytale is mentioned along with "beer baron" Thomas WHITSON on p143,144 of "The past today - historic places in NZ" , editor John WILSON, NZ Historic Places Trust, Pacific Publishers, 1987.

The song is highly thought of by all who have heard it. Muriel did the `Grand Tour' of Europe. She played the piano at the silent movies. Mum has her photo album from c1900. Here is a poem of hers: GOD KNOWS And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:- "Give me a light that I may safely tread into the unknown." And he replied "Go out into the darkness & put your hand into the Hand of God. That shal be to you better than light & safer than a known way." So I went forth, & finding the hand of God, trod gladly into the night. And He led me toward the hills & into the breaking of the day in the east. So heart be still, What need our little life Our human life to know If God hath comprehension? In all the dizzy strife Of things both high & low God hideth His intention. God knows. His will Is best. The stretch of years Which wind ahead, so dim To our imperfect vision Are clear to God. Our fears Are premature. In Him All time hath full provision. Then rest: until God moves to lift the veil from our impatient eyes When, as the sweeter features Of Life's stern face we hail, Far beyond all surmise God's thought around His creatures Our mind shall fill. The following is extracted from the article on her in the Auckland Waikato Historical Journal, No. 58 April 1991, p12-16 . "Muriel COLLINS nee WHITSON 1881 to 1869" by DA RAE. `Robert WHITSON, the founder of the brewing business that bore his name, had arrived in NZ in 1857 & after farming near Warkworth for 4 years, came to Auckland to resume his previous occupation as a brewer at Hobson's Bridge, Newmarket. ... The ... subject of this memoir is the marriage of Robert's son Thomas (by then also in the family business) to Fannie DEACON in 1868 & the marriage of Robert's daughter Elizabeth to George JOHNSTONE in 1865. Both of these families were to build houses in Princes St next to each other - the Thomas WHITSONs at no 27 & the George JOHNSTONEs at no 29. The house at no 29, well maintained, still stands as "Hamurana" & is leased by the Civic Trust. Less fortunate, no 27 was in 1934 moved sideways & forward to a few feet from the Princes St footpath to become no 25a, shorn of its verandahs, to make way for the present no 27. Unhappily as no 25a the house was demolished ... In building in Princes St both Thomas WHITSON & George JOHNSTONE (also now in the family brewing business) were taking their place among the most prominent and wealthy citizens of Auckland & all must have seemed set fair for an even more prosperous future. But tragedy seemed to stalk the WHITSON family. Old Robert lived to see 2 of his sons die prematurely - John had died of pneumonia at 37 in 1875, while Thomas had only 4 years in his Princes St mansion & died in Jan. 1881 at the age of 35. After Robert himself died in 1883, his son-in-law George JOHNSTONE, having earlier left the business & left Auckland, died in Gisborne in 1886, apparently by his own hand, at the age of 47. 30 years later, the strong prohibitionist lobby within the Presbyterian Church would have seen all this as divine retribution - the nemesis due to the "booze barons". But social attitudes hadn't reached that point during the lifetime of Robert WHITSON, who remained a respected elder of St Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Symonds St & a valued personal friend of its minister. One of his last acts was to lay the foundation stone for the ornate church tower & spire in 1882. (See under 34161 1 concerning the engraved silver trowel and mallet he used for this. The portico and tower were designed by Matthew HENDERSON and the stone nave - built in 1847 - by Walter ROBERTSON.) At his funeral from St Andrew's in 1883 - "the procession of carriages extended nearly half a mile & showed the esteem & respect in which the deceased was held." The brewing business was sold in 1885 to Louis EHRENFRIED & the WHITSON name disppeared from the Auckland commerical scene, surviving only now in Whitson Terrace, off Howe Street in Newton. At the time of Thomas WHITSON's death, his widow was left with 4 children & was pregnant again. 4 months after Thomas' death Muriel WHITSON was born in the Princes St house. This posthumous child, in her late years, became our weekend neighbour when my wife & I moved into our first home in Goodall St, Hillsborough in 1946 & contributed greatly to the interest & entertainment of our family in the years that followed. I think that she was drawn to Hillsborough by the recollection of children's parties she had attended at the COLEMAN country estate - later so unsuitably used as the Hillsborough cemetery. The COLEMANs - William & his wife Rika (nee MYERS) had their townhouse "Lynton Villa" in Princes St but did a good deal of their entertaining in Hilsborough. The WHITSON & COLEMAN households would have been well known to each other & Muriel had many visits to the (then) country house even though the COLEMAN's daughter, Ruby Ehrenfriend COLEMAN was 10 years younger than she was. In our time at Hillsborough she was renting a small cottage across the street from us & would arrive there most weekend from "Rockwood" in Mountain Road, Epsom, where she spent the rest of the week. (Rockwood later became Epsom Girls Grammar hostel.) Her story, as she related it, was that she had been brought up in the expectation of wealth - an expectation that had been amply fulfilled up to the time that she was a young woman. The Princes St house had been sold in 1884 & Fannie WHITSON & her children moved to Parnell, so that Muriel spent most of her young life there. By the time that she became the only unmarried member of the family left at home, Muriel & her mother did a good deal of travelling .... On one of these trips they were staying at the Wentworth Hotel in Sydney at the same time as Sir Ernest SHACKLETON with whom she had a mild flirtation - (a wonderfully handsome man from her account). To evade the mother's chaperonage, the only way that they could be alone was in the left, in which they went blissfully up & down while Mrs WHITSON was frantically running up & down the stairs saying - "Has anyone seen Muriel!" She was in London in 1914 where she allegedly attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. She had many tales of her contemporaries in London such as Elizabeth ASQUITH & Lady Diana MANNERS. The outbreak of WW1 put an end to her aspirations as an actress. I don't know how much time (if any) that she spent on the stage, but I can vouch for the fact that she never stopped acting off it! She saw the war out as a driver in England - Winston CHURCHILL being one of those she drove during that period. Back in NZ after the war at the age of 37, she found the family fortune dissipated & was faced with the need to earn her own living for the first time in her life. She had some talent as a pianist, but it was not marketable as it stood, so she took lessons from Maurice GUTTERIDGE, then the musical director for the Regent Theatre. (Those who remember the days of the days of the silent films will know that the main Queen St theatres had full theatre orchestras.) GUTTERIDGE took her in hand & she had here lessons actually in the theatre in the mornings when the cleaners were in. He told her that, the day that he ould feel that she had "got rhythm", he would vault over the brass rail behind the piano & dance up the theatre aisle with one of the charwomen. To her astonishment this is exactly what happened as she was playing away one morning at the Regent - & from then on she was launched as a pianist in suburban theatres to accompany the silent films. She had a great fund of anecdotes about those days - about how much sheet music she had to buy to keep up with the lates "hits" & how easy it was to heve her attention stray, & even to nod off during these great playing marathons. She related to me how one of her colleagues playing during a Cecil B. de Mille epic had such a lapse. The film was to include an episode of Christ walking on the water, but as no actual representation of Jesus Christ was permitted on the screen, all tha appeared were the 2 feet alone on a long wave breaking on the shore. The tired pianist whose attention had been drifting, suddenly became aware that a change was indicated - looked up at the screen to see a wave breaking & burst out into "A life on the ocean wave, a home on the rolling deep!" Possibly through this theatrical connection Muriel met & married a dance band leader called "Tux" COLLINS - presumably quite a bit younger than herself. Dance bands & domesticity don't often mix & she would sometimes find notes in his pockets from girl fans along the lines of "Why did you marry that old hag when you could have had me!" From all accounts the marriage had a fairly rocky road, "Tux" tending to alcoholism among many other problems. Muriel had visited an old school friend in Moutain Rd from time to time & when "Tux" was drying out in the Mater Hospital at one time, she took advantage of her friend's hospitality to stay near him. This friend was Mrs Donald MacCORMICK who as Margaret RICHMOND had been a fellow pupil with Muriel at the Misses BEWS' Mt Eden Collegiate School - the forerunner of the present St Cuthbert's College. She was now living in the old RICHMOND home "Rockwood" with her sister Miss Beryl RICHMOND. (Historic "Rockwood" in Mountain Rd was built by William AITKEN & figures prominently in Alfred SHARPE's early water colour "The environs of Auckland" in the Auckland City Art Gallery. William AITKEN left the property to his brother's widow whose daughtter Jeannie married John RICHMOND in 1878. Miss Beryl RICHMOND, as the oldest daughter of John & Jeannie RICHMOND, inherited the home on her parents' deaths.) When "Tux" eventually left Muriel, the timing would have roughly coincided with the advent of talking pictures & the consequent redundancy of the big theatre orchestras as well as the humble solo pianists in the suburbs. She must have had a real financial problem & Mrs MacCORMICK came to her rescue saying "You might as well come here where you will at least have a roof over your head." This arrangement, intended to be temporary, turned out to be permanent & Muriel spent the rest of her life at "Rockwood" up to the time she went into Selwyn Village for her last years. "Tux" was packed off to England to her own family to see if they could do anything for him, but he committed suicide on the ship on the way to the UK - according to Muriel's account. Muriel, now a widow, settled into the rambling old house with the sisters & commuted to the rented cottage at Hillsborough on weekends where I got to know her. My first recollection of her was seeing her walking down the steep hill clutching a large parcel of meat to give to a red setter dog whose owners, she considered, were not feeding it properly yet looking so thin herself that one felt that she, and not the dog, should eat the meat. At the time she was living in the house at "Rockwood", but later moved into a room in the old stbles. This stable bloack is now no 1 Rockwood Place, the road that wa formed when the land was subdivided & the old house moved to its present position & reduced in size. The room that Muriel lived lived in is exactly as she left it & the main stable block has had minimal alteration to make it habitable by Mrs MacCORMICK's daughter, Mrs Jean CHEAL & her husband who live there now. A case should be made for its isting by the Historic Places Trust before someone restores it out of all recognition! Before the land ws subdivided, the grounds had become considerably overgrown & Muriel tol me that she was coming home in a taxi, entering the long lower drive opposite the Grammar School main building when a rabbit jumped out into the car headlights. "Look a bunny!" she called out. To this the taxi driver replied - "I wouldn't be surprised to see lions & tigers in this bloody jungle!" I find it hard to convey the delight we had in her company & the way that she dramatised everything that happened to her - never letting the facts get in the way of a good story. A couple of examples may just give a hint of her entertainent value for our young family. On one Sunday morning when she was staying in the Hillsborough cottage she was standing on a stool to adjust a light fitting clad only in her petticoat. Ther was a knock at the door & thinking that it was just a woman friend from down the road she called out "Come in." - The door opened to reveal 2 soberly dressed men on the doorstep, patently Jehovah's Witnesses or of some similar fringe religion. One look at the lightly clothed figure & the older man sent the younger away before he could be contaminated & started to present his message. Muriel, believing that attack to be the best form of defence, said "But I want to tell you about my religion too! - I am a Calithumpian & a URINEitarian & nudism is an important part of our religious observance. As a matter of fact, I was just about to strip off when you knocked!" Precipitate departure of the caller! Again, reverting to her time in London, she spoke of the cosmetic surgeon who was reputed at that time to have said - "I am sorry, Lady Mary, but this must definitely be the last face lift. your breasts are now exactly under your armpits." But it really impossible to convey on paper the full flavour of her spokenwords. The rented cottage at Hillsborough had eventually to be vacated as the owners wanted to pull it down & build on the site. The loss of this weekend retreat hastened her decsion to move into Selwyn Village where full care would be available if needed in her last years. I find it hard to believe that she really regretted the move though she said to me "We might as well be out in the middle of the Sahara for getting visitors to come out here!" Visitors or no, the large population of the Selwyn complex must have been a bonus for her with so many new people to try out her old stories on & to be entertained with her fluent piano playing of the "hit" songs of their younger days. My last recollection of Muriel was when I went as accompanist to a choral group giving a concert in the large converted room with its beautiful outlook on the top floor of the Lichfield Building at Selwyn Village. There was a big turnout of the villagers & after the performance Muriel took me round to her many friends saying to each "This is Don RAE - I gave him his first bath!" Seeing that I was an adult in my late 20's before I even set eyes on Muriel that bath must have been very badly needed! That remark alas must also cast a good deal of doubt on the exact accuracy of many of her other anecdotes. Never mind - we all enjoyed the flow of stories is while they lasted & we know that she kept her wits about her up to the time of her death on 15.2.1969 at the age of 87. Her sharp wit never deserted her & the memory of it remains as fresh as ever with those who shared it.' m at Auckland? sp-"Tux" Tucker COLLINS. Separated.

The McGOWNs gave her a house in Bledlow Ridge but found it too lonely & chose not to retire but to spend her last decades cooking for Dora in Wood Furlong. Gradually the traditional distance between `mistress' & `servant' had diminished so that Violet came to eat her meals with the family. About 10 years younger than Dora, both suffered broken hip-bones in their last years in Wood Furlong, looking after each other. After Dora's death she moved back to her own house."

The rest of the family & some old friends, as we had lived at 28 Derryvolgie Avenue until 1922, had been alerted & we would be whisked off to one or the other ... We always went to the KINGHANs .. when Rummy, Racing Demon & Newmarket were played & a very luscious supper ... On Saturday the Meet took place. Joe was Master of the County Down Staghounds, & when Parliament was not sitting, he hunted one of his 2 horses, Duke & Nobo? They had to be big & strong to carry him. Pat always hunted too. She had a sporty little horse His Nibs that jumped everything. T rode Mono. We the guests followed in the Lanchester with Dear & a lavish lunch in picnic boxes. Des entertained Frank & me .. We golfed at Craigavad, tried to play squash, went beagling ... On Xmas night we played Murder. The house lent itself well for this as there was a back staircase in the servants' quarters. We had quizzes, charades, dinner debates. We did not sail as the boats were laid up for winter. My father was a very keen sailer & later many of the family were fanatical in this direction, especially T & Des. Sailing took place on Belfast Lough. My father owned a Fairy class boat, Fiend before we went to England which performed great feats under Des after the war. Frank, T & Des were all naval people in the war. 71222 5-Frank (McLaren) McGOWAN (1.9.1915) MD, OBE, FRCP, MRCS, surgeon. Like his father he went to Clare College, Cambridge.

The Dowager Lady McCONNELL was her title in latter years. At the time of her marriage she had never been out of Ireland except for her finishing- school, Miss Robinson's of Rouen. Her father's firm's bankruptcy had made her social position uncomfortable. She married when Queen Victoria was due to visit Belfast, of which her father-in-law was mayor. The reception was at her home, Merchiston. The Belfast Newsletter 26.4.1900 describes Lady Jaffe's dress & others. They honeymooned in Paris & Switzerland. She was an elegant woman with style & great presence. "Her eyes changed with light & mood from sea green to blue to violet. Her voice was husky & she had a gurgling contralto laugh. As she grew older any wrinkles in her neck were concealed by the ropes of pearls she wore. She had a monocle attached to a brooch. Just before WW1 she bought a daring evening dress slung all over with loops of pink beads & slashed knee high to reveal her shins & ankles, now in the Ulster Museum. Her great hobby was gardening. The head gardner at the family home Glen Dhu was a crabby old man called MacDONALD who lived in the Gate Lodge. His gardens to the south of the house provided food for the dining tables of several houses. Lisa had a unique aroma, Tate's Irish Violets scent. She smoked from a long holder. Her dressmaking dummies were kept with bowls of drying flowers in a very large summer house in the garden, a bungalow where the children each had a little room. As young adults they would throw parties there. The main house Glen Dhu was always full of exquisitely arranged flower vases & potpourri. Lisa went to bed at 2am. She was a board member of the Royal Maternity Hospital. Her eventual favourite & heir was her 2nd son Des 34633 . At Xmas in the late 1930s at least 24 would sit down to dinner. Her driving was eccentric & she could not reverse. After Glen Dhu was sold she moved to 14 Adelaide Park, Belfast, a large austere house close to the homes of her brothers Jack & Balfour. Her elder grandchildren remember lunches there, being waited on by the staff. By the end of her life the country had changed. The government of CHurchill whom her husband had admired & supported, had been replaced by Labour which taxed her income & her cigarettes. However she retained her own fulltime staff a cook, a parlour maid, & a chauffeur-gardner, to the end. Her grandson Angus 332312 has a tapestry she made. She attended the Coronation of King George 6. With her tiara & regal appearance like Queen Mary, she was as fine a woman as any in the palace of Westminster. Buried with her husband at Magheragall. Their home Glen Dhu was a 3 story red brick building with at least 9 chimneys. It was acquired by the McCONNELLs about 1911. At the rear was a large yard with access to kitchens & horse boxes with living quarters for the grooms. A formal footman in livery would greet visitors. Sometimes Lisa would make a grand descent down the sweeping stairs to greet guests. One of their butlers stole most of the silver ornaments including the large table centres presented to RJ by the City Corporation. Children were not allowed in the kitchen: that was the cook's domain. It was sold to become a children's home & demolished for new housing c1985. One of the monkey puzzle trees is almost the sole survivor. m 25.4.1900 at May St Presbyterian Church, Belfast to Sir Joseph McCONNELL (17.9.1877 Belfast-27.9.1942 Ruthin, Wales) 2nd Baronet,JP, DL for City of Belfast, MP for County Antrim at Westminster (U) May 1929 to Aug 1942.

Enjoyed riding & yachting. He served as a junior executive officer on HMS Caroline from its inauguration as a drill ship in Belfast in 1924 until he was mobilised into the navy in 1939. The Marquis of Dufferein & Ava was the 1st commanding officer with Sir Richard PIM being acting commander from 1929. In 1936 he escorted King George 6 on his visit to HMS Caroline in N Ireland. His sons Shean & Angus dressed in sailor suits were part of a welcoming party for the King & Queen. As Lt-Commander he was appointed to Kirkwall in 1939 for duties intercepting enemy & neutral shipping, & then as Asst Extended Defence Officer at Flota. Gunnery officer in HMS Renown 1940. Trawler training officer to HMS Caroline 1941. Officer in charge MTB base Portland. Invalided out of the Navy after hurting his back. After the war he raced Portavo in the Dragon Class at the Royal N of Ireland Yacht Club, Cultra, often using his wife & sons as crew. The boys had been trained as yachtsmen in Mousme, one of Cultra's Fairy class yachts in the 1930s. The family moved to Glen Dhu. Only 2 huge trees remain from its large estate, now a suburb called Glen Dhu. It had gardeners' cottages, a stable block with horses, a gate lodge and a big wing for inside staff. Later he moved to Glen Amond. The stables of the Moat were converted by Donn 34714 and Daphne to a lovely home with an entrance arch (see photo) next to the home of Rose Haselden (see photo). The Moat is now 6 flats, the billiard room with its beautiful windows (see photo) being part of 3463132 Roslyn's flat. 3463123 Fraser has another of the flats. The house has several ghosts. Flat 1 has a cat ghost and a ghost that throws pictures and boxes around. The younger children see the ghosts. 346313 Moyne has often seen a woman ghost from Roslyn's flat, mostly on the stairs. "She's very scared and hard to communicate with" so Roslyn negotiates with the ghost to stay in another room. "She's a very cold ghost - she'll come up and put a hand on you - feels like someone's opened the freezer... she instils a feeling of terror. She'd say `This is my flat' and I'd say `But it's mine now'." Says Moyne, "She won't move over and let me passed... She's tall - 6 feet - a ruff around the neck, a plainish bodice, a long skirt and frills round the wrists. ... My grandmother lived downstairs ... This house was built by Valentines about 1863 before the McConnell's." Roslyn: "She'll be here every month or 2 then go." The infamous Ulsterman Colin O'NEILL is buried next to the butler's house (photo). King William of Orange's Dutch troops camped behind the twins houses (3323124 Victoria and 3323125 Emma): 3500 died there of typhoid. Shawnberg was King William's general. The crest of Ulster is a right hand. The legend goes that Conn O'NEILL - one of the main chieftains - was racing from Scotland: whoever got there first could claim the land. He cut off his hand with a sword and threw it past the man ahead of him so he could claim it first! Later Montgomery swapped Arch Peninsula from ONEILL.

It had a link to Haddington and to St Mary's graveyard there. But this only lists 2 WHITSON: James d 28.9.1885 & Janet (Mrs W.PATERSON) d 10.1.1889. See there St Mary's history: Founded as a Collegiate Church in 1380, and taking over one hundred years to build, the church was largely ruined during the Siege of Haddington 1548-49 after the Rough Wooing by Henry VIII. So where are the oldgraves? I've asked email@example.com What happened to the Lothian Directory at http://www.sportstune.com/elothian/local.html with links to Dunbar, Haddington, Prestonpans and other towns? And https://sites.rootsweb.com/~sctwln2/westlo.htm, a genealogy site for West Lothian? and The Scottish Family History Magazine,Australia and New Zealand http://scotslink.alphalink.com.au ? And http://userdb.rootsweb.com/uki/ SCOTLAND, Dunbar. Burials & Mort Cloths, Dec 1739 to Apr 1851? And http://yard.ccta.gov.uk/cwgc/register.nsf/ ? This gave information on Commonwealth soldiers killed in wars, for example 2244 Thomas (Henry) WHITSON, can be obtained from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.http://www.familysearch.com* For genealogy in general try the very useful LDS FAMILYSEARCH site. Try clicking on the yellow search tab at the top. Particularly useful are entries under "Ancestral File" since clicking on "Pedigree" allows one to scroll through the family. (One can refine the search using the red box on RHS, eg to Southwest Pacific. The bottom entry in the red box, Pedigree Resource File, links to whole family trees.) Of course their accuracy depends on the submitter and sources. For the BATCH NUMBERS for a particular parish go to freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~tyeroots/index4.html for SCOTLAND or freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~tyeroots/index4.html then scroll down the county list on LHS or for some counties home.clear.net.nz/pages/nzsoghamilton/batchnumbers.htm This link now fails but IGI Batch Numbers for East Lothian,Scotland are available at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers/CountyEast_Lothian.htm EAST LOTHIAN: Aberlady Athelstaneford Bolton *1604 Haddington County: North Berwick C117131-C117139 M117131 - M117139 eg M117132 1604-1616 & 1653-1721; M117137 1820-1855 Dunbar C117061 - C117059 M117061 - M117069 eg C117064 1688-1767; C117067 & M117067 1820-1854 Haddington (the parish not the county) C117091 - C117099 M117091 - M117099 eg C117091 & M117091 1855-1875; C117092 1619-1659; C117094 1660-1674; C117096 1684-1749; C117098 1785-1819; M117098 1622-1820 Prestonkirk C117171 - C117179 M117171 - M117179 eg C117172 & M117172 1658-1820 Prestonpans C117181 - C117189 M117189 - M117189; film 1903931 I HAVE NOT YET HAD TIME TO CHECK THESE OUT except as noted. ........................................................................... *1658 Prestonkirk PRESTONKIRK C&M117172 1658-1821, C&M117174 1820-1855, C&M117171 1855-1875: WHITSON gave as well as those above 0 Helen WHYTSON m 26 JUL 1670 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Robert CHRYSTISONE 0 Alexander WHYTSON 1 Catharin WHITSON bp 10 NOV 1672 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 2 Elisabeth WHITSON bp 09 JAN 1676 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 3 Barbra WHYTSON bp: 12 JAN 1679 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 0 Jennet/Janet WHITSON m 01 DEC 1674 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-David GRIEVE 0 James WHITSON m 08 JUN 1675 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Alison HARDIE 0 Alexander WHYTSON m sp-Marien WATT [presumably Alexander WHITSON m NOV 1717 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Margaret WATT] 1 Elizabeth WHITSON bp 17 APR 1720 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 0 Thomas WHITSON m 9 Dec 1755 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Agnes HOG [our 0] M117172 1658-1821 1 Agnes WHITSON bp 17 APR 1768 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 0 Elspeth WHITSON m 06 DEC 1783 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Robert HOGG [our 4] 0 James WHITSON m 16 NOV 1782 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Katherine FOULER/FOWLER 1 Helen WHITSON bp 17 OCT 1783 Prestonkirk, East Lothian [our 31] 0 Jennet/Janet WHITSON c1785 m 20-12-1811 Peebles, Peebleshire, Scotland sp-Alexander GRIEVE 1 1-Margaret GRIEVE came to Australia as a bounty bride in 1841. 1xx Norm EMBERSON of Melbourne to WHITSON board, ancestry firstname.lastname@example.org 0 James WHITSON m sp-Anna HOPE 1 Anna WHITSON bp 16 JUL 1815 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 0 Marion WHITSON m 13 NOV 1840 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-Charles WATT 0 Richard WHITSON m 28 MAR 1846 Prestonkirk,East Lothian,Scotland sp-Mary SIMPSON 1 Jane WHITSON b 16 JUL 1855 Prestonkirk, East Lothian 0 Catherine WHITSON m 03 JUN 1854 Prestonkirk, East Lothian sp-James FISHER 0 Thomas WHITSON m sp-Elisabeth SIMPSON 1 William WHITSON b 25 NOV 1866 Prestonkirk, East Lothian ....................................................................... *1809 Prestonpans, East Lothian Prestonpans C117181 - C117189 M117189 - M117189; film 1903931: C117182 1596 - 1620 - C117189 1603 - 1680 - C117185 1687 - 1704 - C117186 1704 - 1716 - C117187 1716 - 1738 - C117188 1738 - 1820 0 Wm WHITSON m sp-Mary BAIN/BANE 1 Elisabeth WHITSON bp JAN 1809 Prestonpans, East Lothian 2 Catherine WHITSON bp 18 FEB 1813 Prestonpans, East Lothian C117181 1855 - 1875 - C117183-4 do not exist ....................................................................... *1614 EAST LOTHIAN: Aberlady M117025 1751-1854 Athelstaneford C117031 1855-1875; M117034 1764-1820 Bolton M117042 1685-1821 Dirleton C117051 1855-1875; M117052 1664-1819 Dunbar Gladsmuir C117081 1855-1875 Innerwick M117112 1614-1689; C117115 1741-1820 Ormiston M117152 1637-1649 & 1706-1819 Pencaitland M117161 1855-1875; M117164 1698-1819 Whitekirk M117234 1761-1819 Yester M117252 1654-1819 ....................................................................... *1682 MIDLOTHIAN: Canongate, Edinburgh, Midlothian M195004 1811-1819; M195006 1820-1835 Cranston, Midlothian C116802 1682-1820 Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian C116852 1863-1869; C119804 1748-1750 Liberton, Midlothian 7912430, 8500054 Saint Cuthberts,Edinburgh,Midlothian M119895 1820-1825 West Calder, Midlothian C117011 1855-1875 ....................................................................... 4.2 MAPS For information on Scottish places try the Gazetteer athttp://www.geo.ed.ac.uk/scotgaz/This will also give you a map of East Lothian, one showing Prestonpans, Haddington, Dunbar and North Berwick, each of which you can click on for more information.

On the Saturday night a Reunion Dinner was held two doors along at the University Club, at which a large iced cake made by Mrs. Freda JOHNSTONE sp-22217 complete with the JOHNSTONE family crest, was ceremonially cut with the sword that had belonged to George JOHNSTONE sp-222. On both days, many lunched at Brewery Lane, Queen Street, in the refurbished Albert Brewery built by Robert WHITSON (22) in 1870. On the Sunday afternoon the grandchildren of George and Elizabeth JOHNSTONE (222) arrived with the Mayor of Auckland in a procession of vintage cars, accompanied by people in period costume to the music of a brass band playing in the large upstairs balcony. The occasion was the Grand Opening of the former home of 222 as the new headquarters of the Civic Trust, who had laboured to preserve intact for Aucklanders the six original homes built in Princes Street after the Britomart Barracks was dismantled. Their success was not complete, as the home of Thomas WHITSON (349) at 27 Princes Street, was torn down in 1977. Main organisers were 3493 52 Kit WITHERS & 34641 2 Sid JORDAN.
