First Generation

 

1.     Thomas Doig was born about 1752 in Of Forfar, Angus, Scotland. He died in 1811 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland.

He may be the Thomas christened 30 Jan 1745 at Aberlemno, son of Andrew Doig, burgess of Brechin, and May Anderson; or born in Easter Balloch and christened 23 Feb 1749 in Kirriemuir, son of Robert Doig; or christened 5 Apr 1750 in Liff, son of James Doig; or christened 12 Aug 1753 in Dundee, son of James Doeig and Ann Alloa. It has also been suggested that he was the son of brewer in Glamis James Doig (1723-1778), but he is not mentioned in James' will.

 

Thomas was a workman in Forfar Burgh and later a brewer.

 

It is curious that Thomas and Margaret with 10 offspring had no children named after them. It is possible that Thomas had been previously married and already used these names. The late marriage to Elizabeth Milne is based on approx. age, location, occupation, timing, and Elizabeth' first husband Alexander Smith may have been a brother to Thomas' first wife Margaret Smith.

 

 

Thomas married (MRIN:1) Margaret Smith on 14 Feb 1778 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. Margaret was born about 1757 in Of Rescobie, Angus, Scotland. She died in 1799/1805 in Of Forfar, Angus, Scotland.

She may be the Margaret christened 12 Feb 1757 in Forfar, Angus, daughter of James Smith.

 

Both were listed from Forfar.

Second Generation

5.     James Doig (Thomas) was born on 30 Jul 1786 in Glamis, Angus, Scotland. He was christened on 2 Aug 1786 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland.

The IGI shows James born 2 Aug 1786 and christened 6 Aug 1786 in Forfar, but in the original OPR he appears to have been born and christened on 2 Aug 1786 in Forfar. The following link is based on the family Bible of John Doig and Hamilton Johnson recording his father as James Doig born 30 July 1786 in Glamis. Glamis is the neighboring parish to Forfar, and the timing is close, as the christening record is done after the birth. Also there are no other possible recorded parents for this James, although his birth may be unrecorded or lost.

 

James sired two illegitimate children by Jean (Jane) Ramsay.  There is probably an interesting love story here as they had the children about ten years apart, the city boy from Forfar and the country girl, a farm outworker in Glamis.  James may have left the area and returned after an absence of 8 years, perhaps to leave again. In about 1818 James was a mercantile clerk in Forfar.

 

James was in a non-marital relationship with (MRIN:3) Jean (Jane) Ramsay in Not Married. Jean was born about 1790 in Of Glamis, Angus, Scotland. She died on 13 Sep 1840 in Glamis, Angus, Scotland.

Although not certain, Jean was christened 10 Dec 1790 in Glamis, the lawful daughter of William Ramsay. Another recorded christening for a Jean Ramsay was 10 July 1784 in Glamis, the daughter of John Ramsay.

 

They had the following children.

+           12    M         i.    John Doig was born in 1807. He died in Apr/Jun 1880.

+           13    M        ii.    Stewart Doig was born in 1815/1819. He died on 25 Jul 1875 from epilepsy.

8.     Alexander Doig (Thomas) was born on 27 Dec 1793 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. He was christened on 29 Dec 1793 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. He died on 22 Jul 1860 in Westmuir, Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland. He was buried in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland.

Alexander and daughter Jean are not located in the 1841 census. In 1841 Elisabeth Doig lived at Westmuir, Kirriemuir, with daughter Ann; son David worked as an agricultural laborer on another farm.  In 1851 Alexander was a “widower” and agricultural laborer living at the Landward Part of Westmuir with his daughter Ann and her illegitimate daughter, Jean Aird.

Alexander married (MRIN:4) Elizabeth (Betsy) Lundie "Betsy". Betsy was born in 1785/1791 in Angus, Scotland. She died in 1841/1851 in Of Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland.

She may be the Elizabeth christened 4 Nov 1792 in Glenisla, daughter of John Lundie and Martha Torbat.

 

In 1841 Elisabeth Doig (50 Angus) lived at West Muir, Kirriemuir with her daughter Ann Doig (linen hand loom weaver).

+           16    M       iii.    David Doig was born in 1823/1825. He died on 28 Nov 1910 from diarrhea after 3 days, senile heart failure after 1 day.

9.     William Doig (Thomas) was born on 30 Aug 1795 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. He was christened on 30 Nov 1795 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland. He died on 25 Oct 1876 in 2 Nursery Feus, Forfar, Angus, Scotland from quotidian ague with hepatic enlargement after some months.

Surgeon, 46th Regiment.”  The discharge further confirms that William’s condition was not caused by his own neglect or intemperance, and that his conduct had been very good.  In 1834 William was described as 5’ 9” tall, brown hair, brown complexion, blue eyes, and by trade a shoemaker.

 

In 1841 William was a linen handloom weaver living at Southmuir, Kirriemuir.

The Glamis parish record coded John's christening with an “N.” indicating “natural” or illegitimate.

 

The link to illegitimate daughter Isabella is based on age, location, and having left Scotland for England about the time of her birth. Isabella reported her father as John Doig, ploughman, deceased by her wedding in 1860.

In 1871 John lived at 74 Red Lion, Holborn, London with his wife Hamilton and children Jean, Ann, Abraham, and lodgers. By 1874 John was a baker at 74 Red Lion Street, Holborn.

 

An article by J. R. Curry in The Baker’s Record of 30 July 1931 entitled “Baker and Miller A Hundred Years Ago,” reports: “John Doig was a master baker who traded in Fetter-Lane.  He came to London from Glamis, Forfarshire, the place of his birth, and took a situation as a Scotch forehand.  In a few years he was able to start in business for himself in Fetter-Lane, becoming a near neighbour of W. Dwarber.  Like Mr. Dwarber he became a freeman of the city.  I have not the minutes of the Protection Society to find out if he had a hand with friend Dwarber in the founding of the society, which was undoubtedly planned in Fetter-Lane, and the first meeting arranged for."

 

John's wife Hamilton was executrix named in his will (P.R. 791).

After a distinguished career in the Army, Stanford Doig was made an OBE. He talks to CLAIRE BURKE about serving in India under the Raj, fleeing Dunkirk during the Second World War and meeting Mother Teresa.

 

Stanford Doig was born in a town near Calcutta in India. His parents were first generation settlers and, as a boy, he attended a school in the Himalayas.

 

While working in a "soul-destroying" job on the East Indian Railway, he heard the British Army was looking for young men with an engineering background and decided to join up.

 

In December 1937, Mr Doig, who now lives in Abbotsleigh Mews Residential and Nursing Home, Sidcup, sailed from Bombay in the troopship Dunera, spending sleepless nights in an uncomfortable hammock.

 

After arriving at Woolwich Barracks, he enrolled with the British Army and worked his way up to Armament Artificer, a skilled technician, with the rank of staff sergeant.

 

When the Second World War broke out his unit sailed to France to repair broken down tanks, but they were soon on the run from the advancing Germans.

 

As they made their way to Dunkirk, they came under attack by Luftwaffe bombers.

 

They were among thousands of Allied troops being evacuated from the beaches, and he was rescued by a small yacht who took him back to Margate in England.

 

Mr Doig, 96, who has four brothers and four sisters, said: "We were very lucky to have got away, really.

 

"Bombs were falling all around us. We were scrabbling in the sea to get into the boats."

 

In 1941, he was sent to Iraq where the 10th Indian Army was reinstating a pro-Allies Regent who had been deposed.

 

After being posted back to India, he was commissioned as 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME), and was appointed to New Delhi where he worked at the Directorate of Mechanical Engineering.

 

His mother was matron of the Silver Jubilee Tuberculosis Hospital in nearby Old Delhi.

 

Around this time, the Quit India Campaign, demanding independence from Britain, was becoming increasingly belligerent.

 

Mr Doig was on leave in England when reign of the British Raj ended in 1947.

 

Violence flared between Muslims and Hindus, with people slaughtered in the streets.

 

In his book, Hither, Thither, Then and Now, published in 2002, he wrote how a radio broadcast "reported all hell had broken out in the sub-continent.

 

"I was lucky to have missed the worst of it."

 

In June 1955, a letter dropped through the letter box of his home, in Barton Road, Sidcup, summoning him to Buckingham Palace to receive an OBE for his services to the REME.

 

He said: "I was called up to the stage and presented with a medal.

 

"I was very excited. Queen Elizabeth pinned it on my shoulder and said a few words about India.

 

"I felt it deserved a response but all I could manage was a glug from deep down in my throat."

 

When he and his sister, Mars, visited his brother, Desmond, an artist, in Calcutta in 1977, they had tea with Mother Teresa, who Desmond was writing a book about. Afterwards she asked them to pray.

 

Mr Doig said: "She was a very sweet person.

 

"She said Now let's talk to Jesus'. She sank to her knees with the consummate grace born of years of practice."

Our uncle, Stanford Doig, who has died aged 96, was the quintessential English gentleman. Charming, courteous, a prince of etiquette, he was dapper and proud and had many stories to tell. A number of them he recounted in his book Hither, Thither, Then & Now (2002), a collection of his contributions to the parish magazine of St James's church, North Cray, in Kent, and to the magazine of the Royal Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, the corps in which he served for 15 of the 21 years that he spent in the British army.

 

He was born in India, the eldest of eight children, and attended school in the Himalayas before beginning an indentured apprenticeship in steam engineering at the East Indian Railway's locomotive workshops in Jamalpur. At the same time, he studied commercial art via a correspondence course. In 1935 he qualified as a fitter-inspector at the EIR sheds in Cawnpore (now Kanpur). He joined the army in the autumn of 1937, when he heard they were looking for young men with an engineering background, and was formally enrolled at Woolwich barracks.

 

He always took his responsibilities seriously and, in 1946, bought a bungalow in Kent for his mother's retirement. She had been the matron of a TB hospital in India. Her husband, who was 30 years older, predeceased her. When Stanford retired from the army in 1958 and went to live there himself, he transformed the garden into a source of joy for all visitors.

 

Uncle Stan had an insatiable love of life and was just as enthusiastic in extolling the beauty of a favourite poem, such as Kipling's If, as he was sitting on his favourite garden bench and appreciating the beauty of an English summer's day. He said that in his 36 years of retirement, he never had a moment of boredom.

 

He is survived by 10 nephews and nieces.

Arbroath Herald, Monday, 5 December 2011 -

60 years for best friends Doreen and Allan!

   Allan and Doreen Doig celebrating their diamond wedding in their home on Thursday.

   AN ARBROATH couple are attributing 60 years of happy marriage to not being just husband and wife, but best friends too.

   Allan Doig (85) said he and Doreen (81) were able to celebrate their diamond wedding last Thursday because: “We love each other’s company, and we are best friends as well.”

   The couple met at a YMCA dance in Carnoustie, in what is now the premises of Lloyd’s TSB, and Doreen laughed when she said it was really a case of their eyes meeting across the dance floor!

   The lovestruck pair courted for 18 months before Allan proposed, and their engagement lasted 18 months while they saved up for the wedding.

   They were married by Rev. Dr De Voil at Holyrood Church, Carnoustie, and held the reception in what is now the clubhouse of Carnoustie Yachting and Rugby Club, before enjoying a week’s honeymoon in the Grays Hotel in Portobello, Edinburgh.

   Doreen originally hails from Carnoustie, and attended Kinloch Primary until she left at the age of 14 to take a job at Winter’s shoe factory.

   She worked as a machinist making high class shoes for men and women in the factory at the bottom of Ferrier Street, on which site now stands the Lousen Park sheltered housing complex.

   Allan has lived all his life in Arbroath, attending Ladyloan Primary School and Arbroath High School.

   His working life has been varied, having at one time or another worked for the Eastern Mica Company making filaments for boilers and electric fires, served in The Black Watch, driven dumper trucks for Arbroath Town Council, was the first janitor at the newly opened Muirfield Primary School and spent the last 10 years of his working life at Halliburtons.

   Allan and Doreen have two sons and a daughters and recently welcomed a third grandchild into the family.

   The pair have many interests which they say keep them active, and they are a familiar sight around the town on their bikes. They also enjoy walking, reading, jigsaws and knitting.

   Asked to give modern couples some advice Doreen said: “There’s got to be some give and take.”

   To which Allan replied: “And make sure you let the wife win all the arguments!”

Doig to head CMA

SASKATOON — If the Doigs’ Scottish family motto holds true, the Canadian Medical Association is in for another year with a tenacious leader at the helm.

Incoming CMA president and Saskatoon family doctor Anne Doig’s family motto is “gang warily,” which means, “Look out, you buggers — here we come,” she says with a laugh.

Medical association history is in the making this year. As Doig, the oldest of five siblings, is installed at the head of the national organization representing doctors, her youngest brother, Chip Doig, becomes president of the Alberta Medical Association.

But it wasn’t an attempt at total Doig domination that prompted her to seek the president’s role.

After years of high optimism, she had a gradually sinking feeling every year when filling out physician surveys about quality of, and access to, medical care.

“(My patients are) languishing, in the sense of not getting the care I know that they should be getting in the most expeditious way that they can get it,” she said. “It’s one of those put up or shut up moments in life.”

After 31 years in practice, she saw the situation deteriorating, not improving. Last year, when it was Saskatchewan’s turn to choose a CMA president-elect, the time was right for Doig personally and professionally, which prompts her to call her election an “accident of history.” She beat out six other Saskatchewan candidates, winning on a fourth ballot.

For the past two years, the CMA has been led by Drs. Brian Day, then Robert Ouellet, who are both known as proponents of private health-care services in Canada.

Doig is more coy about her views on that debate, saying she’d like to get away from the polarized argument and towards developing solutions that will get Canadians access to the care they need.

One of her strengths is “weaving people together” who once had disparate views, she says — a skill that would come in handy while trying to get medicare proponents and free-market fans to play nicely together.

She says she’s “envious” of Day and Ouellet, because the nature of their disciplines and the rules in their provinces (B.C. and Quebec) allowed them to offer medical services their patients needed when they saw these were not available through publicly run health-care services. She points out that she’s paid by public health dollars to work in a privately owned and managed clinic.

“When you get into this privatepublic-private-public stuff, it has this effect of being a whip for doctors, because we all think of ourselves as private practitioners.” she says. “But we are practising in a publicly funded environment where the issue for us is not where the dollars come from. The issue is often why the administrative overburden on the control of the flow of those dollars prevents our patients from getting good care.”

But there should be limits to market intervention in health, she says. When insurance companies, not health-care workers, dictate what treatments patients should or shouldn’t have, or if a person can’t get care because they can’t get health insurance, things have gone too far.

Doig’s goal as president is to continue the CMA’s current push to empower doctors to be the leaders of health-care reform in Canada. She wants physicians to talk more effectively about what small changes they’re making in their local practices that could work elsewhere, then adapt and borrow those ideas from their colleagues.

Doig’s father was a doctor, and her family immigrated to Saskatchewan from Britain when she was five years old.

The Doigs settled in Hawarden, which is about 100 kilometres south of Saskatoon between the towns of Kenaston and Outlook. She went to medical school at the University of Saskatchewan and has practised family medicine in Saskatoon ever since.
