      ARRIVAL OF THE GLOUCESTER - Otago Daily Times c December 29th 1858

      The ship Glucester, A1 for 13 years, 1000 tons burthen, Captain John Hiatt, arrived in port on the 26th December, after a prosperous run of 103 days. She is one of the new line of passenger ships belonging to the well-known firm of Messrs. John Lidgett and Co., of London, and is intended as a regular trader.

      The Gloucester left the Downs on the 14th of September, crossed the Equator on the 22nd of October, sighted the land of Tristan d' Acunha on the 10th November, and made the southern end of Stewart's Island on the 24th December.

The passengers speak very favourably of the ship and her officers; and although they met with a severe gale in the Bay of Biscay, at the commencement of the voyage, all allow that during the passage every comfort that a ship can give has been liberally afforded to them.

      Most of the new arrivals, and there are upwards of 100, are stout, healthy, young people, some assisted in their passage by the grant of money voted for that purpose by our Government, and from what we have ourselves seen of them, they will prove a very welcome addition to our thriving settlement.

      During the passage only two deaths and one birth occurred. The former, however, was the result of disease confirmed previously to their leaving England; one was that of Mr Henry Doig, who was on his way to join some relatives, who are well known amongst ourselves; with them we sincerely condole. It took place on the 13th November.

      Amongst the passengers we recognize with satisfaction the return of an old and much esteemed settler, Edward Lee, Esq., and he has brought with him two very valuable Spanish Merino Rams; there are likewise two Rams of the Cotswold breed on board, belonging to the Messrs. Shennan, who are also passengers. These have arrived in very excellent condition, and thus attest the care bestowed upon them during their sojourn on board the Gloucester.

      We hail the arrival of the Gloucester with great satisfaction, as she is thepioneer of a new line of passenger packets to this country. She is now on the berth for London direct, and will thus afford our wool growers another opportunity of shipping by a vessel direct from Otago with Otago produce; she is also well adapted to carry passengers, and we strongly advise any intending visitors to Great Britain to avail themselves of this favourable opportunity. By such means as this new line offers us, we shall be anebled to show our friends at home a convincing proof of the brilliant prospects of their relatives in this their adopted land.

     

      Stirling Observer - Thursday 07 April 1859

Deaths - On the 11th November last, on board the ship Gloucester, on his way out to New Zealand, Henry Doig, late of Alva [Stirling]. Friends will please accept this intimation.

      Obituary - Jackson Citizen (Jackson, MI), Tuesday, November 10, 1891:

   Daniel Doig Dies Suddenly

   Very sad and unexpected death of one of our best citizens.

   Suddenly, without a note of warning, Jackson has been called upon to mourn the loss of one of her most upright, honorable, and esteened citizens, who was called away in the midst of his duties about 6 o'clock Monday evening. While Mr. Daniel Doig was unhitching his horse at his shop on Clinton street, for the purpose of going to his home at that time, he was seized with heart disease and in a few minutes had breathed his last. He had been feeling as well and cheerful as usual during the day and had attended to business, being on his feet most of the time. A little before 6 he left the shop to get his horse, his son following as soon as he had locked the doors, when, on arriving at the place where the horse was hitched, he discovered his father lying upon the ground breathing heavily and in a few minutes he had passed into eternity.

   Daniel Doig was born in the ancient town of Stirling, in Scotland, January 1, 1821, and had consequently reached the allotted three score and ten. He came to this country when a young man and settled in Rome, N.Y., where he became acquainted with and afterwards married Miss Julia N. Tibbets. He moved to this city 27 years ago, where for about 18 months he was engaged in business with Joseph Tibbets, after which he founded the concern which he carried on until the time of his death. Mr. Doig was a ceasless worker, and as a fruit of his skill, energy and untiring industry his business was very successful, and he was regarded as one of Jackson's prominent business men.

   His manner was ever quiet and unobtrusive, but his long life was full of kindly deeds and philanthropy, and he passes into the Great Beyond bearing with him the love and esteem of all those whith whom he has been long associated through the many years he has gone in and out among them.

   His wife, and three children, John Doig, Mrs. R. B. Coltrin, and Miss Mary Doig survive him, and a large circle of acquaintances while extending their sympathy, will join with the bereaved family in mourning their loss.

     

      MARRIAGE:

They were married by the Rev. F. H. Stanton.

Under the command of Captain Lewis Davies, the ship arrived in Brisbane, Queensland on 25 September 1869.  A newspaper report stated the "Royal Dane" arrived after a splendid run of 85 days.

     

      Paul seems to have been quite a successful businessman after coming to Australia.  He worked as a wharfinger for Thomas Brown & Sons in Brisbane, owned property in the Brisbane city area and also was a prosperous dairy farmer.  Family story goes that Paul had planned a trip back to Scotland, his bags were on board ship and the night before departure while staying with his daughter Ellen Wallis, died of a heart attack.

     

      "The Brisbane Courier" 9 March 1905, page 6: Obituary

Another of the old resident of Brisbane has just passed away in the person of Mr. Paul Doig, who for many years lived in Short-street, city. The deceased, who was 61 years of age, carne to Queensland nearly thirty-six years ago, and after a short stay at Redland Bay, and then at Mackay, he entered the employ of Messrs. Thomas Brown and Sons, and had charge of their Short-street wharf. He remained about twenty-five years with them, and less than two years ago he went to reside on his farm at Nambour, where he engaged in sugarcane growing. Illness overtook him a fortnight ago, and he died on Monday morning. Deceased leaves a widow and six sons and two daughters. He was just on the point of taking a trip home to Scotland, having booked a passage by the Miltiades, which is due to leave on the 15th inrtant.

     

      Chronicle and North Coast Advertiser (Queensland), 10 Mar 1905 -

Obituary. MR. PAUL DOIG. senr., which occurred last Monday morning, we have another exemplification of that Biblical truth, 'We know not what the morrow bringeth forth.'' Last Wednesday night week, as reported in our last issue, a surprise party visited the home of the Doig family. 'Brae side,' to bid farewell to to Mr. and Mrs. Doig, and ' all went merry as a marriage bell' in that home. Today, sorrow dwells within those walls. Next week the now deceased Mr. Doig and his wife were to have left our shores, bound for Scotland, the land of their birth ; but that Higher Power to Whose will all human mortals are ever subservient decreed that Mr. Doig should, ere then, journey to another country ' the land of immortality. The sad intelligence came as a shock to his family and friends early on Monday morning by wire from Brisbane, whither the deceased had gone some ten days previously. Mr. Doig had not been in good health since leaving Nambour, but news received on Saturday bespoke a favourable condition and of his being well enough to undertake the journey to Scotland, so that the last message was quite unexpected. The remains of the deceased were interred in the Toowong cemetery on Tuesday. Mr. Doig was 59 years of age at the time of death, and had been employed as wharfinger at Messrs. D. L. Brown and Co's Short-street wharf for 25 years. A wife, two daughters, and six sons (all grown  up) are left to mourn their toss. Mr. and Mrs. Doig had booked their passages to the land ot the thistle, but, under the circumstances, Mrs. Doig will not now undertake the journey.

Gored by a Bull.

Mr R D Neilson, JP, yesterday conducted a magisterial inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of John Doig, who was gored by a bull at the residence of Mr James M'Whirter, Hendra, on April 13. He was conveyed to the General Hospital, where life was pronounced extinct. Senior sergeant O'Sullivan examined the following witnesses: Jass M'Whirter, Henry Miller, Henry Blanchard, Robt. Rutherford, Paul Doig, and Constable Chas. Harvey. In effect their evidence was that deceased had been employed by Mr M'Whirter to tend his stock, and on April 13 was to have taken a bull to his employer's farm at Samford. Deceased had handled the same animal for two and a half years, but had not seen him for three months. Mr. M'Whirter had warned Doig to exercise care in the removal of the bull, which had running in a paddock of two acres, and had advised him to take an assistant and drive the animal into the stockyard and there securing him. Witness Blanchard, who did not consider any one was to blame for the accident, stated that he led a cow towards the bull but the animal refused to follow. Deceased then went towards the beast with a bull stick. It first backed, and then charged, knocked him down, and tossed him about until Blanchard recued him. A certificate from Dr. Dods stated that death was caused by an injury to the chest resulting in the fracture of eight ribs, and the tearing of a lung and the liver; also hemorrhage and shock. The inquiry was closed.

Taylor and Parmelia Anderson.

 

Notes for James Doig

      The link to mother Margaret Doig is based on age, location, and that no other person could have reasonably sired a Doig son in Gargunnock during the period. In James' naturalization paper he stated he was from Stirlingshire, and the birth record of his illegitimate daughter Ann lists him as a native of Gargunnock. Also in the 1855 NY census a niece, Mary A. Doig, is living with him, the daughter of John Doig, younger brother of Margaret Doig. Also Margaret's brother Daniel (Donald) moved to NY and then to Jackson, MI where James' son Millard worked for Daniel.

     

      In 1848 James was a farm servant at Crow-Tree, Gargunnock.  He sired an illegitimate daughter, Ann, by Barbara McLaren.  In Ann's christening record James is listed as a native of Gargunnock. Before leaving for America he had admitted being the father of Ann Doig and had made provision for the child.

     

      James emigrated to Scriba, Oswego Co., NY in May, 1848. He was a cooper, or barrel maker. In 1850 James Doyg lived with the family of Cyprian Taylor. In 1855 James lived in Scriba, and owned a frame house valued at $400.00; he was not a citizen at that time.  He was then married to Loretta, and Alta was 2 years old.  Living with them was Mary A. Doig, a niece, born 1842/3 in Scotland; she had been living with them for 6 months [She is probably Mary Ann Doig christened 24 Aug 1842 in Stirling, the daughter of John Doig and Isabella Robertson.  Her father is probably the John christened 17 May 1812 in Gargunnock, Stirling, the son of John Doig and Jean McKinley.] By 1860 the family had moved to the neighboring village of New Haven, Oswego Co., NY with Rosett (26 NY) and children Alta and Millard.

     

      James became a naturalized citizen of the United States on 13 Oct 1864 at the Oswego County Court (#2315; second pagers 1829-78, #2389).  Witnesses were Eliziar Taylor and Thomas Kyne.  James listed that he was born in 1829 in Stirlingshire, Scotland.

     

      In 1880 James farmed in Palermo, Oswego Co. (page 17) with his wife Loretta and children Gertrude (teaching school) and George (sailing). In the 1885 Nebraska State Census James [recorded as William Dorg] (57 Scotland) and Lauretta Dorg lived in Midway Borough, Gibbon Township, Buffalo Co., NE with Millard Doig (20 NY) and George Doig (22 NY).

The cemetery lot where James and Loretta are buried in Kearney Cemetery was owned by A.S. and M.F. Doig.

     

Notes for Loretta Taylor

      Birth reported in CT by son George in 1930 census.

 

      Children of James Doig and Barbara McLaren were as follows:

      308     i           Ann6 Doig or McLaren, born 1 Jun 1848 in Gargunnock, Stirling, Scotland; christened 22 Oct 1848 in Gargunnock, Stirling, Scotland; died in New Zealand.   Notes: Ann was illegitimate. In 1851 Ann Doig lived with her McLaren grandparents on Nailer's Lane, Kincardine (Thornhill). In 1851 Ann Malcolm lived with her mother and step-father Francis Malcolm in Glastow. She went with the family to New Zealand in about 1863. Note: Ann is not the Ann McLaren who married David Fergus in 1867. She was christened 27 June 1847 in Gargunnock, daughter of Alexander McLaren and Janet Mcintyre.

 

      Children of James Doig and Loretta Taylor were as follows:

Notes for Millard Filmore Doig

      In 1880 Millard was a stage proprietor residing on Fulton Street in Hannibal, Oswego Co., NY (page 153) with his wife Carrie and daughter Lettie [or Lottie]. It appears that his wife died soon after as he is without his wife or daughter in the 1885 Nebraska State Census in Midway Borough, Gibbon Township, Buffalo Co., NE.

Washington, Santa Ana, Orange Co., CA with his daughter Florence and sister-in-law Florence A. Lowrey (60 OH). In 1930 he still lived at 204 E. Washington with daughter Florence L., third wife Lucy (42 IL), and step-son Carl Bateman (18 IL). In 1936 Millard lived at 124 Stanford Avenue, Garden Grove, CA.

     

      In 1936 Millard gave his history, thus: "At the age of 21 years Millard Doig left his home in Oswego County, New York and went to Jackson, Michigan, where, employed at the trade of a millwright, he lived for five years (1875-80).  At that time the west was opening lands for settlement, so he went as far as Nebraska where he took up a track of land near Kearney, Buffalo County, Nebraska.  After fifteen years on this ranch Millard Doig disposed of his holdings and moved to California where he secured 80 acres of productive land in Orange County near Santa Ana.  Later he sold his ranch and lived in Santa Ana."

     

      Note: While working in Jackson, MI it is most likely that he worked for his grand-uncle Daniel Doig.

Notes for Dr. Robert Stevenson Doig

      Robert started medical training at Glasgow University, but joined the Royal Flying Corps and served in France during the First Great War. He was with the allied forces liberating Valenciennes, Northeast France when he briefly met his future bride, Lucienne, then only 18 years old. He returned to Glasgow, and after qualifying as a doctor.

     

      Robert initially joined his brother Dr. Henry Doig in Lennoxtown. In 1830 he went to Stornoway, Isle of Lewis as Medical Officer of Health. He loved the Isle of Lewis and was an enthusiastic gardener.

     

      Robert received the MBE from the Queen for his eradication of tuberculosis from the Island of Lewis. He received his award on the same day as the Beatles, and they gave him their autographs on Buckingham Palace notepaper. Robert Dougall, a well-known BBC Television news reporter who also received his MBE on the same day, documented the event in his book "In and Out of the Box." Robert died several hours after receiving the award. Doig Crescent in Stornoway in Lewis was named after him.

     

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

Robert Stevenson Doig was born in Govan, Glasgow, on 7th April 1895. His father, Henry, was an engineer. When Robert first matriculated at the University of Glasgow in 1915 to study medicine, the family lived at 13 Gordon Terrace, Craigton, Govan. Although he was successful in his first year, he did not return in October to continue his studies. He joined up. His family recalls that he served for the duration of the war in the Royal Flying Corps.

     

      Robert's service took him to France, where he was a radio officer, attached to military and spotter aircraft. A war, which was so grim in so many other respects brought happiness to this serviceman in that he briefly met the lady whom he later married when his unit liberated the town of Valenciennes, where she lived. Before they would get married, however, he had to tackle the unfinished business of completing his medical qualifications in Glasgow. He did this in style, as the university prize lists for these years disclose. In 1919, he made the Honours list in Zoology and picked up a 1st class certificate in Systematic Chemistry. In 1920, he added a 1st class certificate in Medical Physics and continued in the same vein the following year with 2nd class certificates in ENT and Anatomy. In 1922, he earned two 2nd class certificates in Physiology and crowned his academic record in 1923 with 2nd class certificates in the Practice of Medicine and Clinical Medicine. He graduated amongst the brightest stars of his year in 1924.

     

      After qualifying, and marrying, he entered general practice with his older brother, Dr Henry Doig, in Lennoxtown, but he was soon appointed MOH for the Isle of Lewis and served there until his death in October 1965. His interest in medicine continued to be both practical and academic. On 9th November 1929, he was awarded the Diploma of Public Health, again on a very strong academic performance. On 26th June 1965, at the age of seventy, he demonstrated that his inquiring mind was still at its peak when he graduated MD, with Commendation. One great, and last honour was to follow. Sadly, he died a few hours after receiving his MBE at Buckingham Palace in October 1965.

      WHEN KERR DOIG retired from the insurance industry in 2000 his daughter Kirsty urged him to trace his family tree. Kerr, who lives in Dunfermline, had often expressed interest in genealogy but, until retirement, had no time to pursue the issue actively. He knew his paternal grandfather's family came from Slamannan, near Falkirk; and on visiting Register House in Edinburgh Kerr was able to find evidence tracing his family back to 1747. That was quite an achievement itself. Prior to 1855, entries of birth, marriage and death were kept through old parish and church records. People had to pay for entries in the register at that time, and most couldn't afford to do so, with the consequence that many lives went, for the most part, undocumented.

      Kerr decided to take his investigations a step further - with astonishing results, and an unexpected development, which is itself worth writing up in the history books. Prior to his retirement, he had only used a computer for work-related purposes. At the Carnegie Library in Dunfermline Kerr ran a search on 'Doig', and up came the website of Kenneth Frank Doig in Bass Lake, California. Kerr had traced his own family back to his seventh-generation great-grandfather John Doig (born c. 1748, Kilmadock, Perth), who married Margaret Paterson (born c. 1752, Kincardine) on 30 June 1773. Like Alex Haley in Roots, he had traced the line back; now he was interested in tracing it outward - in effect, not so much Roots as Branches. Now, by sheer chance, he had stumbled upon the world's foremost authority on Doig genealogy.

            Kenneth Frank Doig turned out to be Kerr's sixth cousin. He began charting his own family hiistory in 1991, after which he turned to other branches of the Doig clan. He traced distant relatives to Canada and Australia, confirming the names of ships, scrutinizing passenger lists, and even discovering the story of one Doig born aboard a boat in transit to the New World. When he started his search in 1991, Kenneth Frank Doig found 286 hits for 'Doig' on the Internet. Now there are 1,860,000. The most popular is his own site, www.doig.net - and he receives dozens of e-mail inquiries every week. He has researched Doig genealogy in the United States, Canada, Scotland, England, Christchurch in New Zealand, Sydney - even the Vatican Library in Rome. His correspondence over the years has consumed reams of paper and involved answering literally thousands of e-mails, and he now has over 75,000 contacts in his family files: 60,000 Doigs and 15,000 of his wife's relatives. Kenneth Frank Doig's personal archive is impressive by any standard. Yet in his quest for more information on the Doigs, Kerr also consulted the largest genealogy archive in the world.

      RootsWeb.com, the world's oldest free community genealogy research site, was founded in 1993 by Dr. Brian Leverich and Karen Isaacson. In 2001, this was acquired by MyFamily.com, Inc. - the largest for-profit genealogy company in the world, with a growing number of genealogy and family websites. (The parent company is based in Provo, Utah, and this has given rise to the inaccurate rumour that the site is run by the Church of the Latter-Day Saints.) Yet the most exciting discovery Kerr gleaned from the web came not from America, but from Australia.

      Kerr's father's first cousin, Wattie Doig (1900-1987), was a trade unionist and Communist who'd been unable to find work in Slamannan and who left Scotland for Australia in 1926. A cousin told Kerr that a woman named Wendy Lowenstein had been given a five-year bursary to conduct an oral history covering all of Australia during the Great Depression. During her research, Lowenstein had befriended a militant old ex-coal-miner, Wattie Doig, and his wife Agnes. Lowenstein's labours culminated in a 1978 book, Weevils in the Flour, which Kerr acquired. He wanted to find out more about Wattie Doig, and twice e-mailed the Communist Party of Australia to ask if they could provide any information on him from their records - but he received no reply. What transpired next was the type of serendipitous coincidence you'd be hard-pushed to find even in a movie; it led Kerr straight to a movie. The State of Victoria's official government website gave visitors an opportunity to 'Ask a Librarian a Question'. Kerr asked for information about Wattie Doig. Astonishingly, the librarian who answered wrote back that her own mother-in-law, Wendy Lowenstein, had written a book about a strike in which Wattie Doig played a prominent role. The book Dead Men Don't Dig Coal had never been published; however, the librarian's brother-in-law, Richard Lowenstein, Wendy's son, had directed a film based on that unpublished book in 1984.

      The film was titled Strikebound, with Chris Haywood as Wattie Doig and Carol Burns as his wife Agnes, a Salvation Army member who became outspoken in support of her husband's militancy in the face of deplorable working conditions. The Australian Film Institute nominated Strikebound for nine awards in 1984 and the film lifted the prize for Best Achievement in Production Design. It was a drama-documentary recreation of the industrial unrest in Australia's South Gippsland coalfields in the 1930s, and specifically of the miners' occupation (led by Wattie Doig) of the infamous Sunbeam Colliery in Korumburra, Victoria.

      Strikebound is certainly no How Green Was My Valley. Director John Ford's 1941 Oscar-winner is the most romanticized portrayal of mining life ever committed to celluloid. Lowenstein's film has far more in common with hard-hitting dramatizations of colliery unrest such as Michael Curtiz's Black Fury (1935) and John Sayles's Matewan (1987). There are also echoes of the dramatic British films The Proud Valley (1940), directed by Pen Tennyson, in which Paul Robeson's Christ-like African-American miner (named David Goliath) sacrifices his life for his adopted Welsh community, Blue Scar (1949), written and directed by Jill Craigie, and Philip Leacock's The Brave Don't Cry (1952), about a Scottish mining disaster. Most of all, however, Strikebound is in the tradition of two radical American classics: Herbert J. Biberman's Salt of the Earth (1954), widely considered the Hollywood blacklist victims' finest cinematic hour and thirty-four minutes, and Barbara Kopple's compelling documentary Harlan County, U.S.A. (1976). In common with Salt of the Earth and Harlan County, Strikebound has an emphatic proto-feminist message, underlining the role of the women of the community in guaranteeing the striking miners' success. Out of this dispute came Australia's first Women's Auxiliary, with Wattie Doig's wife Agnes Doig crucially active in its formation. The strike was eventually resolved in the miners' favour, with Australia's then Transport Minister Robert Menzies reinstating dismissed miners, effectively forced to accept the pit-top committees' right to negotiate directly with mining management. Strikebound is topped and tailed by brief excerpts of a filmed interview with the real Agnes and Wattie Doig, in their eighties.

      I couldn't help wondering if Mark Herman, director of Brassed Off (1996), ever saw Strikebound before embarking on his own project. The two movies begin identically, with small pinpoints of light in the bleak darkness, gradually growing and multiplying to reveal helmeted men trooping through the mines. Yet in Brassed Off this image is matched with the Grimethorpe Colliery Band's rousing rendition of R.B. Hall's Death or Glory march. In Strikebound, its low-key accompaniment is the voice-over of the real Agnes Doig as she remembers: 'When I came to Australia, I saw long queues of people waiting for jobs, and that was in 1928. Wattie couldn't get work in Melbourne. He tried many places. Well, life was pretty grim. I wasn't interested politically at that period. I did all my severe learning in Korumburra.'

              The scene shifts from miners walking in the darkness to our first glimpse of the Doigs in old age as Wattie takes up the story: 'Well, nobody, I think, could realize the spirit of defeatism that was in the trade union movement: the waterfront workers were defeated, the timber workers were defeated, the miners were defeated. And there was a whole air of pessimism, there wasn't any leader giving any lead anywhere - plus the fact ' that in the midst of a capitalist crisis of full production nobody just knew what to do about it all.'

      The very last word, at the end of the film, goes to Agnes Doig as she declares: 'I'm proud to be a member of the working class. They've done heroic things, and they'll do more heroic things.' Like I said - How Green Was My Valley this ain't. Nonetheless, there is one almost Fordian moment, in aesthetic yet not ideological intent, as Agnes's Salvation Army sisters sing 'Onward Christian Soldiers', rivalling Wattie and his Communist friends singing 'The Red Flag' at a union meeting next door. It's reminiscent of the musical rivalry of Westerns set around the time of the Civil War, such as Dodge City (1939), Major Dundee (1965) and The Undefeated (1969), in which Northerners sing Yankee tunes and Southerners respond with 'Dixie'. Yet there is a different context, a different narrative justification, for Strikebound's warring musical motifs. In those Westerns I cited, the songs are symbolic of enduring regional discord that must be surmounted on the road to political union and national harmony. In Strikebound, this episode is symptomatic of the tension between two culturally-engrained (perhaps irreconcilable?) systems of belief from the old country, religion and socialism, as represented in the marriage of these transplanted Scots. While Strikebound has a distinct feminist subtext and in no way subscribes to 'husband knows best' complacency, the film is as much about former Presbyterian Agnes's trajectory from Salvation Army service to co-spousal radicalism as it is about Wattie's own industrial militancy. Agnes McInwain Smith from Shotts had actually gone out to Australia to marry Wattie Doig, and so her personal odyssey had traversed both the globe and the ideological spectrum. Agnes had participated (with additional comments from Wattie) in Wendy Lowenstein's 1978 oral history interviews with the Wonthaggi Women's Auxiliary (the files are now held in the University of Melbourne's archives). It's significant that Strikebound starts and ends with her testimony, charting her evolution from a woman who 'wasn't interested politically' to one tenaciously 'proud to be a member of the working class'. By the 1950s, Wattie Doig had become a folk hero of the Communist bloc. He visited the Soviet Union and China, and was even invited to meet Mao Tse-Tung.

      Wattie Doig was Kerr's father's first cousin, but Kerr's odyssey uncovered a number of weird and wonderful characters who were not related to him, but who bore the same surname. Dr. David Doig, rector of Stirling Grammar School, spent an evening with Robert Burns in Autumn 1787 and was described by the poet as 'a queerish figure, and something of a pedant'. Charles Cree Doig was an architect and distiller who designed the pagoda whisky distillery roof, with over a hundred of these built throughout Scotland. Another David Doig served as manager of the Bank of British North America during the gold rush in the Yukon. He operated from a tent, locking the gold-dust in the local jail for safe-keeping. Doig's love of women, whisky, cigars, caviare, oysters and a pint of champagne for breakfast every morning earned him the nickname of 'Caviare' Doig. Writer and artist Desmond Doig authored the book Mother Teresa, Her People and Her Work, had a library named after him in Nepal, and accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on several expeditions - including one in 1960, in search of the Abominable Snowman. Peter Doig is a celebrated Scottish painter. Federico Kaufman Doig is head of the Amazon Archaeology Institute in Peru. Probably the most poignant case of a famous Doig was the man hailed as one of the greatest goalkeepers Scotland ever produced. Ned Doig was a football legend by the age of nineteen, the subject of the rarest cigarette card in the world, and a victim of the Spanish influenza epidemic, aged fifty-three, in November 1919.

      Yet much further back in Kerr Doig's own family history is an even more curious piece of football lore. In December 2005, Kerr discovered that one of his ancestors was responsible for purchasing the oldest football in the world on behalf of James IV. During renovations of Stirling Castle in the 1970s, this football was found in the roofspace of the Queen's bedchamber. Stitched from leather and pig's bladder, it weighed 125 grams and measured fourteen to sixteen centimetres in diameter. The original receipt, dated 11th April 1497, shows the money was entrusted to James Doig (a.k.a Jame Dog), Keeper of the King's Wardrobe and Kerr's seventeenth-generation great-grandfather: 'giffin to Jame Dog to by fut ballis to the King James IV'. Discovery of this ball has led to speculation that Mary, Queen of Scots was a football fan. She is rumoured to have watched her courtiers playing. The game of football was very different in that era. Pitches were six miles long, games lasted for days, and players gouged eyes, punched and kicked one another. (Well, maybe the game wasn't all that different back then.) This historic artifact is now part of The People's Exhibition in the Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum - but it was displayed in Hamburg during the 2006 World Cup.

      In March of 2004 Kerr Doig was taken ill while ferrying to Bruges with his wife Maureen. At first he thought he was suffering from gallstones. It turned out to be a heart attack, and doctors in Belgium told him he needed an operation, urgently, to save his life. Less than two weeks later, while still in Belgium, he underwent a quadruple coronary bypass. Had he gone home to have the operation, he might well have died while still on the waiting-list. Yet Kerr lived up to the Doig family motto, 'Yield Not To Adversity', and a mere seven months later hosted the First World Doig Gathering at the Stirling Smith Museum on Saturday 6th November 2004. More than a hundred Doigs attended, from all over the world - from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Malta and Switzerland. The Second World Doig Gathering has just been held, between 4th and 6th August 2006 at Thornhill, near Doune, where the Doig family arrived in the sixth century. The next gathering, Year of the Homecoming, is planned for 2009, with another reunion in Canada scheduled for 2010; and that's not all. There's even a Doig DNA project. Given that it's difficult to connect the blood relationships of disparate branches due to the paucity of early documentary entries, the Doigs are now tracing those relationships by means of simple mouth swab DNA tests. There's also a book planned, to be titled The Big Doig Book. Kerr Doig would seem the ideal candidate to write it, but he demurs modestly. Besides, he's involved on a new project: to obtain clan status for the Doig family. To achieve this, the Lord Lyon of Scotland requires ten Doig registered coats of arms, costing about £1,000 each. Currently there are two, with another one pending: Kerr's. The Lord Lyon has signed the warrant authorizing his coat of arms, and Kerr will be the first Doig in Scotland to record his own coat of arms since 1468.

      Enthusiasm for genealogy is nothing new, although it has certainly been facilitated by the Internet. Still, I got the impression that the Doigs have delved more thoroughly into this pursuit than most families. Kerr agrees: 'As far as family websites are concerned, I honestly think ours is second to none. It's given us a challenge. It's like going down to the Thornhill area, and you can feel that there are Doigs shouting from the hill-tops, 'Find me! Find me!' And there are still references we're finding today. It's a funny feeling - it's like a spiritual home - and we never know what we're going to dig up next.'
