Lovat Reay MacKenzie

(1913 - 12 February 1991)
Gravestone of Lovat Reay Mackenzie & his sister Una Holm Mackenzie
     Lovat Reay MacKenzie was commonly known as Reay. He was born in 1913 in Morningside, Edinburgh, Scotland. He was the son of Donald Alexander MacKenzie and Elizabeth Fraser.
     Lovat died on 12 February 1991 in the Highland Hospice, Inverness. The Cromarty Journalist reported: Cromarty Man of Culture: Lovat Reay Mackenzie was a connoisseur of culture and history.
Born into a Cromarty family distinguished in the arts, he was faithful to the Ideals they had prized in his life, his work and his many interests. Such was the theme of a tribute by the Rev Robert Galloway at Reay's funeral service in the West Church, Cromarty.
Reay moved to his home in High Street, Cromarty, in 1983 on his retirement from his last post as news editor of the Highland News In Inverness. he died, aged 77, at the Highland Hospice, on 12th February.
A talented journalist of wide experience, he was a former, deputy news editor of the Scottish Daily Express in their Edinburgh offices. He was also an accomplished pianist and composer of music. Among his works was the score of a ballet "Grand Pas Classique", with choreography by Marlaric performed at the Edinburgh Ballet Theatre in 1959.
Reay was the son of journalist, Don Alec Mackenzie, who in (the early days of this century shared the editorship of the North Star with his brother George, later Editor of the Northern Chronicle, Inverness. Another notable uncle was Dr. William Mackay Mackenzie, Professor of Ancient History at Edinburgh University. Reay was a brother of Dr. Norman Mackenzie, a leading psychiatrist, who spent his retirement in the old family home in Barkly Street, Cromarty.
Although born in Edinburgh and educated at George Watson's College there, Reay's roots were very much In Cromarty, which was, in the words of Mr Galloway "the home town of his illustrious ancestors who were literary giants."
Mr Galloway said that the family home In Barkly Street field many precious memories of cultural, especially musical, occasions. 'Reay was deeply conscious of the contributions his ancestors had made to education and other causes in Cromarty. His great love of the town and its rich history, and his appreciation of Its architectural merits were reflected in his wish that his funeral service could take place in the *Old East Church, but, sadly, that was not possible.
Reay's interest in history was also exemplified in his absorption with antiques - from small items in porcelain to pictures and furniture. He saw much more in these items than monetary value - art, craftsmanship, the skills of a bygone age. He was a connoisseur.
Then there was his devotion to music, especially classical music. Bach was his favourite composer. Reay's gifts as a pianist were a tribute to his Austrian teacher, Dr. Hans Gells. Mr Galloway described how Reay once helped him in his search for a new piano, insisting that it should be a grand or, at least, a baby grand. At one house, he astonished the potential sellers by the virtuosity of his performance on the keys with no music before him.
In everything Reay's standards were high. He seemed to find joy, satisfaction, security in the established - the tried - things. And how he tried to share his standards and his knowledge.
Mr Galloway revealed that before his death Reay was working on a project to set to music the "Ballad of Sir Patrick Spens," which begins with the line "The King Sits in Dunfermline Town". Alas, It was not to be.
As a person, Reay was very private, studious and scholarly, yet he lived a very full life, a contented life. he was a man of peace. His skill with words and his quiet humour were with hint to the end. His literary talents were manifested In his contribution to the world of journalism.
With Reay's passing, another notable Cromarty figure has left the scene he was part of local history, which he had enriched.
In conclusion, Mr Galloway expressed the community's deep sympathy for Reay's relatives at home who were present at the funeral, and abroad. The interment took place in Cromarty Cemetery, overlooking, the old town which meant so much to him
. He was buried in the Gaelic churchyard, Cromarty.

     MARRIAGE: An orange blossom notice over the Standard leader discloses the pleasing fact of a wedding having been solemnized at "Calrossie", Won Wron, on Wednesday last by the Reverend James Groundwater, the contracting parties being Mr. V. R. Brown and Miss Isabel McKenzie who were united in the bonds of matrimony at 9 o'clock, and, after the customary hour for refreshments and toasting, the young couple left the cosy and picturesque home of the McKenzies for Traralgon, en route for Melbourne and the honeymoon.
So enthusiastic were their friends as to rice and old slippers at parting, that the four prancing horses which were in hand by Mr. Kelsie for driving the happy couple to Traralgon, did a lively wedding caper on their own account in honour of the occasion. The Misses McKenzie and Johnson were bridesmaids, Mr. B. P. Johnson acting as best man; and rumour hath it that the gentleman just named is about to enter the united states with another fair daughter of "Calrossie". Happy signs of the times! for it was but a fortnight previously that a similar ceremony to the one performed by Mr. Groundwater on Wednesday last, engaged the attention of the Rev. F. A.

The "Carlisle" and her owner will leave behind them the memory of many a pleasant excursion; and whilst we cannot help regretting the loss our social circle has sustained by Mr Browns departure, we, of course, admit that the surroundings make it a matter for congratulation and we heartily wish himself and bride all health and happiness in their new home, and doubtless amongst their pleasures of the future not the least will be some breesy trips in the bonny "Carlisle."

     Mary Isobel MacKenzie was commonly known as Mollie. She was born on 24 March 1905 McKENZIE.—On the 24th March, at Nurse Davis's Private Hospital, Sale, the wife of T. G. McKenzie, "Calrossie," Yarram—a daughter in Sale, Victoria. She was the daughter of Thomas George MacKenzie and Annie Littlejohn Fraser.
     Mary and Annie Jean MacKenzie were educated at Devon North, Victoria.
     Mary and Annie Jean MacKenzie were educated at Presbyterian Ladies College, East Melbourne. Mary Isobel MacKenzie travelled with Thomas George MacKenzie and Annie Littlejohn Fraser on the "Cathay. They travelled second class, their last address in the UK being 53 Queensboruogh Terrace, London W2".
     Mary Isobel MacKenzie married William MacAulay on 25 July 1940 in Victoria.
     Mary was registered as Mary Isobel MacAulay for land at Won Wron at Gelliondale, Victoria, on the 1949 electoral roll.
     Mary was registered as a voter for land at Won Wron at Albert Valley, via Gelliondale, Victoria, on the 1960 electoral roll.
     Mary Isobel MacKenzie lived at 2/15 Dougherty Street, Yarram, 1982.
     Mary died on 1 July 1996 in Yarram district, Victoria, aged 91. Obituary: Pioneering daughter dies. Mary Isobel MacAulay was born on March 24, 1905 and died on July 1, 1996 aged 91. Mary's life spanned almost all of this current century, being born at a time when motor cars and electricity were very much in their infancy, and there were no such things as radio, television, atomic bombs or computers.
She lived through an era that has seen the most rapid development in human history.
     Mary was the eldest daughter of Thomas George McKenzie and his wife, the former Annie Littlejohn Fraser, of Sandy Point. They made their home in a new house they called "Inveresk" on the family property "Calrossie" They were members of a pioneering family involved in the farming of beef and dairy cattle; the growing of crops such as lucerne, maize and flax; and the manufacture of butter, some of which was exported to England. Along with her sisters Jessie McLeod and Jean Luck. Mary was first educated at home through the services of a governess, before attending school at Devon North. They travelled to and from school in a small horsedrawn cart that they called a Governess Cart. After a break of one year, her schooling was competed at the Presbyterian Ladies' College in East Melbourne where she achieved awards for ability and leadership. After leaving P.L.C. she returned to help with the running of "Inveresk".
     In 1920 the family travelled on 8 cargo / passenger vessel to England via the Cape of Good Hope and along the west coast of Africa. The trip took about 10 months. Again in 1932 the family, along with relatives W.H. and Amy McKenzie and J.J. McKenzie, travelled to Japan.
     Some of her memories of life at "Inveresk" are worth mentioning for their historical interest.
     One memory was that of about 1918 when the hydro electrical generator was installed at Tarra Valley to provide power for Yarram. As their house was not too far from the supply line they were able to be connected :to the supply.
Another memory was of walking with her father along the road lo Calrossie to the big three storey barn with the water wheel to power the machinery.
There was a small artificial lake not far from the barn and the water came from that in race or drain to turn the wheel, so fascinating for a child.
This supplied the power to drive the butter churn, and it must also have driven a separator, and an endless chain system to lift things up to the other floors.
Beyond the butter factory were various divisions: a butchery room, a loose box for the imported stallion and other stables and places for housing machinery. Maize cobs were stored on the top floor along with probably pumpkins and potatoes. There was also a silo for storing lucerne, grown in a paddock near the Tarra River.
     A third memory was of the family visiting the singer Ada Crossley while they were staying in London.
     In 1940 Mary married William MacAulay of Albert Valley Staceys Bridge, a member of a pioneering family from that part of the Yarram district. At that time William was also a member for the Gippsland Province in the Victorian Parliament and a member of the council of the Shire of Alberton. Albert Valley became her home for almost the next 40 years. Here Mary developed her life around her three sons, Gordon, David and Ian and the public life of her husband which no doubt provided her with many challenges and interesting opportunities such as attending a number of functions and being presented to the Queen during the Royal visit in 1952. The opportunity came to purchase part of the original McKenzie property known as "Llanos" and she maintained an active interest In the running of this farm for the test of her life.
     On the death of her husband on May 17, 1957, Mary ensured that her sons received a good secondary and then university education. However, implied in this, was the requirement that "to whom much is given, much is expected".
Having lifelong associations with the land she maintained the farm as her home and source of livelihood as well as providing a home for her brother-in-law Hector MacAulay.
     In 1980 she moved to Yarram and was able to live independently until a fall meant she had to move to the Toora Nursing Home where she had lived for the past seven years. Here she contributed in her own way of life in the
e nursing home through her discussions of current affairs.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at the Toora Nursing Home for their care and kindness during these years.
     A person of a quiet and thoughtful nature, she was a faithful member of the Yarram and Binginwarri congregations of the Presbyterian and eventually the Uniting Churches. As a member of the Methodist Church which met in the hall at Hiawatha she continued a family tradition of providing afternoon tea for the Minister and any other members of the congregation who happened to be passing the door. Church services at Hiawatha ceased in 1965.
In the Yarram congregation she was a long-time member of the PWMU and another group called the Work Band.
     Travel again became part of her life in the '70s when she first went to Western Australia and then in 1973 she travelled to Canada to see Gordon and his family.
     She had a subtle sense of humor, declining any offer to celebrate her 90th birthday. Somewhat disappointed at this response her family asked if she would perhaps come to after noon tea instead. Again she declined but quickly indicated that she would like to have a party with all of the family, and what a wonderful celebration it turned out to be.                                                       At home, providing hospitality. to friends and relatives, was one of the pleasures of her life, providing many memorable experiences for all those involved. Gardening was another lifelong interest which seemed to develop from an early age with the development of the garden at '`lnveresk".
She will be remembered as a person who served her community and her family with dignity.

ministry. Referring to this Murdoch's cousin, John Mor Matheson of Fernaig and subsequently of Bennetsfield, the author of the "Iomaire" manuscript says, that John "was taken up" by the Bishop of Moray, who resided at Kinkell (hence no doubt Bishop-Kinkell, the name by which the place has since been known). The Bishop "kept him for some time at school and gave him 500 merks Scots to traffic therewith. After following the mercantile line for some
time, in which he was very successful, he began cattle dealing, by which he became master of a good deal of money." John, in consequence cut out a career for himself. His cousin, the Bishop, pointed out to him the great source of wealth which might open to
him if he succeeded in driving some of the superfluous herds of black cattle which at that time abounded in the Highlands to the southern markets, and which were then of scarcely any value among his own countrymen, but on the other hand often served as a strong
temptation to spoliations from their southern enemies, and deadly feuds among themselves. John Mor had the good sense to act on his Rev. cousin's advice, and he soon amassed a sufficient fortune to buy the estate of Bennetsfield and other lands, including Easter Suddie, in the Black Isle, County of Ross.
