Mary Isobel MacKenzie

(24 March 1905 - 1 July 1996)
     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.

Murdoch MacKenzie (of Bennetsfield)

(1600 - 1688)
     Murdoch MacKenzie (of Bennetsfield) was born in 1600. Murdoch MacKenzie, who was born in 1600, and educated for the
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. [Mackenzie's "History of the Mathesons," pp. 17-18.]
The Rev. Murdoch was Chaplain of Lord Reay's Regiment, in the army of Gustavus Adolphus during the Bohemian and Swedish wars, and subsequently minister of Contin and Inverness in succession.

He is again on record in 1713, in which
year he disponed the Nethertoun of Stroma to his nephew, Murdoch
Kennedy, son of his sister Jane, and her husband, John Kennedy of Carmunks. Sir Alexander of Broomhill had an only son, Colonel Alexander Mackenzie of Hampton, Virginia, who left his English estates to his nephew, Andrew Young of Castleyards.
