Catherine Christie

(between 1790 and 1792 - 12 October 1895)
      Ken Nisbet wrote in the Scottish genealogist 43: 4 (Dec 1996) BRAES OF GLENLIVET IN THE OLDEN TIME - RECOLLECTIONS OF A CENTENARIAN. What follows is an article written on the occasion of my g-g-g-grandmother's "alleged" hundredth birthday. Far up among the Highlands of Banffshire near Scalan in the Braes of Glenlivet, resides an old woman of the name of Catherine Christie or McPherson, widow of the late Paul McPherson, pensioner, who had attained the patriarchal age of one hundred years, having been born in 1792. Knowing that this "the oldest inhabitant " still retains all her faculties in a wonderful degree, we resolved one day lately to pay her a visit and have a chat concerning old men, their manners and their way, in this out of the way part of the country in an age that is gone, a theme she loves to dwell upon; fortunately we found her in capital form, so to speak, and on being acquainted with the nature of the mission we had assigned ourselves, and the task we expected her to perform, she proceeded to relate in substance as follows: - "The face of the country is entirely changed here from what it was in the beginning of the present century. Then there were no roads either leading into or within the Glen itself, save mountain tracks among the heather, and no wheeled vehicles of any kind. Cultivation was almost entirely neglected and land damp and marshy. The implements of agriculture were wooden ploughs drawn by as many as twelve oxen, with shaggy coats of hair and tremendous long horns and they required the services of two men to work them, one to drive the oxen called "Grandman" whilst the other held the plough. Creel s or currachs suspended over the backs of hardy Highland ponies did the carrying part of the work but these were superseded later on by small carts with "clog wheels" and " timme r a ixt r e e s ". The people e were extremely poor for most part in those days, there being little or no money in the country, and few ways of making it. The trailing of wood on horses sides from the famed Glenmore Forest down through Glenlivet, Cabrach and on to Huntly formed for a time one of the industries of the place. Digging the root s of what had once been gigantic fir trees splitting them up into firewood, and conveying same to the low country f airs for sale was also largely engaged in the growing of flax and manufacturing it into cloth, both for home requirements and sale by the travelling "chapmen" received some share of attention. The people did not then fare sumptuously. During summer months the cattle were bled regularly and the life giving fluid converted into food for the people. Little oatmeal was used, there being scarcely any corn grown and even what there was seldom came to maturity, and the little meal it produced being the colour of ashes made a poor substitute for human food. Thrashing mills there were none and meal mills did not exist, the flait did duty for the one and the quern for the other. Tea as an article of diet was then quite unknown. Bere meal porridge, scones made out of the same material, " tatties and lang kail" with plenty of good home brewed malt ale to wash them down with, made stronger men 137. Catherine Christie was born between 1790 and 1792 in Inveravon, Banffshire, Scotland. She was the daughter of John Christie and Jane McGregor.
Catherine Christie married Paul MacPherson, son of John MacPherson and Elspet Gordon, on 6 May 1823 in Inveravon, BAN, SCT.
The Rev Charles Gordon entered upon the church of Chapeltown 17 April 1830 - a census of his flock was held on 12 June 1839 which showed at Badaglashan, Paul McPherson 56, Catherine Christie 36, Ann McPherson 14, John McPherson 13, Donald McPherson 7, Wiliam McPherson 7, Robert McPherson 4, Janet McPherson 2. A note states "eldest son Paul at ... College, Rome". The parents had 'Con' next to their names..
     Catherine Christie and Paul MacPherson were recorded on the 1851 census in Scalan, Inveravon, Banffshire. Paul McPherson, head, married, aged 68, Chelsea pensioner, born Inveravon, Catherine his wife, aged 59, with sons Donald aged 20 and William aged 18, both ag. labs., all born at Inveravon.
Recollections of her life - see interview in "The Northern Scot" Sat March 5th 1892 on her supposed 100th birthday, also see her obituary in the same newspaper 19th October 1895. Lived all her married life and as a widow in Glenlivet 1891 residing with her son Donald at Larryvarry Glenlivet a pauper aged 101.
     Catherine died on 12 October 1895 in Larryvarry, Glenlivet, Banffshire, Scotland. Death of a Braes Centenarian: Glenlivet people resident in many lands and acquaintances in general over a wide area, will read with feelings of some emotion, the intelligence of the death on Saturday last, at Newton of Scalan where she resided for the past sixty years, of widow Catharine Macpherson or ‘Old Katie’ the familiar appellation by which she was best and most widely known during the past thirty years at least, of her very long life. Although her exact age has not been definitely ascertained, from the fact of her marriage to the late Paul Macpherson pensioner (a veteran soldier who fought and bled for his country in the Peninsula being present at Corunna under that illustrious Scotchman Sir John Moore) having been consummated at the Old Catholic Chapel of Kynakyle long since removed to Tombae, in this Glen, some eighty years ago, as well as from other evidence of a like nature corroborative nature which could be adduced in Support of the fact, we think it can be conclusively, proved that the subject of the short notice must at all events be a centenarian, and a great many would have it to be she is much older even than that. By her demise, however, the oldest inhabitant hereby for a good many years has now been removed, and the eventful changes that have occurred in the Braes during her lengthened tenure of existence as they were recorded in a special article to this paper from her own recollection to them, some two years since, are truly many and remarkable indeed. Deceased was ever a healthy, hardy type of woman, and of a cheerful and easily minded disposition. She retained all her faculties almost unimpaired in a wonderful degree up to nearly a year or so ago when signs of dissolution at length set in. She bore a large family of sons and daughters, and her numerous descendants to the fifth generation are spread fare and wide over various portions of the habitable globe. Her remains were laid to rest beside those of her late husband in St. Mary’s Cemetery Chapeltown on Tuesday. She was buried on 15 October 1895 in Chapeltown, Glenlivet.

Diane Cilento

(5 October 1933 - 6 October 2011)
     Diane Cilento was born on 5 October 1933 in Mooloolaba, Queensland. She was the daughter of Sir Raphael West Cilento and Phyllis Dorothy McGlew.
Diane was a theatre and film actress. At a young age, she decided to follow a career as an actress, and moved to the United Kingdom in the early-1950s. She soon secured roles in British films and steadily worked until the end of the decade without making a major impression with film audiences. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Tom Jones (1963), but allowed her film career to decline following her marriage to actor Sean Connery. Connery was the second of Cilento's three husbands, and they were married from 1962 to 1973. They are the parents of the actor Jason Connery. In Sean's James Bond film You Only Live Twice, Diane doubled for Sean's co-star Mie Hama in a diving scene because Hama was indisposed. In 1985, Diane Cilento married Anthony Shaffer, a playwright, who wrote the script of The Wicker Man, a film in which she had appeared in 1973. During the 1970s she had studied under the British mystic and spiritual teacher John G Bennett.
Cilento continued working as an actress, both in films and in television, and in the 1980s settled in Mossman, north of Cairns, Queensland, where she built her own outdoor theater — named "Karnak" — in the rainforest. The venture allows her to participate in experimental drama. In 2006, she released her autobiography: My Nine Lives.
     Diane died of a perforated gastric ulcer on 6 October 2011 in the Base Hospital, Cairns, Queensland, aged 78. She married three times and had two children.

Margaret Cilento

(1923 - 21 November 2006)
     Margaret Cilento was born in 1923 in Sydney, New South Wales. She was the daughter of Sir Raphael West Cilento and Phyllis Dorothy McGlew.
After completing her schooling, Cilento moved to Sydney to attend the East Sydney Technical College with friend and fellow student Margaret Olley. Cilento won the Wattle League Travelling Scholarship in 1947 and made a decisive move to New York. She began studying with printmaker S.W Hayter at Atelier 17 in Greenwich Village and painting with Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo at the Brooklyn Museum Art School. She won the Village Voice Art Competition for her etching the "Bathers".
Attending the glamorous "The Subjects of the Artists School" established by New York's abstract expressionist painters, Cilento became part of the avant-guard movement that included artists such as Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Robert Motherwell. "Studying the human figure with Bill Dobell in Sydney was very different from the soul-searching abstract expressionism I found in New York with painters like Rothko and Motherwell," she says. Cilento is the only Queensland artist whose work has been directly influenced by the New York school at the height of its development.
After several years in New York, Cilento won a French government scholarship to study engraving. The classical inflection in European modernism influenced Cilento's work and she is considered one of Australia's most distinguished practitioners.
In 1954, Cilento went to London to study at the Central School of Art, Goldsmith's College as well as constructivism with Kenneth Martin. She lived, worked and exhibited in London for more than 12 years before returning to Australia in the late 1960s. She has since had a wide range of individual and group exhibitions including a retrospective at the Queensland University Museum Art Gallery. Cilento's works are represented in major Australian and international collections.
     Margaret died on 21 November 2006. She was survived by a daughter and two sons.

Sir Raphael West Cilento

(2 December 1893 - 15 April 1985)
      He was an important Australian medical doctor and administrator. Although he was determined from an early age to study medicine, it seemed at first that he would be thwarted in doing so, because of sheer lack of money. Therefore he trained first as a school teacher sponsored by the Education Department. He eventually entered the University of Adelaide Medical School on borrowed funds, but while there he won so many scholarships, and other prizes, that he ended his course with a respectable bank balance. For the earlier part of his working life, Cilento's interests were mainly in public health and, specifically, tropical medicine. He served with the Australian Army's Tropical Force in New Guinea which superseded the German administration after the First World War. Later he joined the British colonial service in Malaya. On his return to Australia he was Director of the Australian Institute of Tropical Medicine in Townsville, from 1922 to 1924. Following a further term in New Guinea, he became Director of the Commonwealth Government's Division of Tropical Hygiene in Brisbane. He held that role from 1928 to 1934, whereupon he worked as the Queensland Health Department's Director-General. In this position (which he held till 1945, and combined with the presidency of the state's Medical Board as well as with the medicine professorship at the University of Queensland), he firmly opposed the anti-polio methods of Elizabeth Kenny, although at first he had spoken politely enough of her work to give the impression that he favoured it.
Knighted in 1935 (when only 42 years old), Cilento briefly achieved international fame after the Second World War for his work in aiding refugees; at the United Nations, he was Director for Refugees and Displaced Persons from 1946 to 1947. He returned to Australia in 1951.
His later life was characterised by frustration at being unable to find appropriate employment in government service or academia. This was at least partly due to his strongly held extreme right-wing views exemplified by his involvement with the Australian League of Rights. Sir Raphael West Cilento was born on 2 December 1893 in Jamestown, South Australia.
Sir Raphael West Cilento married Phyllis Dorothy McGlew, daughter of Charles Thomas McGlew and Alice Lane Walker, on 18 March 1920 in St Columba's, Hawthorne, Adelaide, South Australia. Weddings. CILENTO— McGLEW. St. Columba's Church, Hawthorn, was well filled with friends of the bride and bridegroom on Thursday, March 18, for the wedding of Dr. Ray Cilento and Dr. Phyllis McGlew. As it was Lent the church was not decorated, except for white flowers on the altar. The bride, who was given away by her father, Capt. McGlew, was attended by her young cousin. Miss Cowler, in a white frock with. touches of pink and'blue. Dr. McGlew's dress was of white charmeuse, the neck ut round and low, the sleeves short, the pointed train from the shoulders of satin lined with georgette. Her veil was of white tulle fastened with a wreath of orange blos soms, and she carried a sheaf of flowers. Her skirt was quite short, and her chaussure? was white silk stockings and white-and-silver bro caded shoes. Dr. Ray Cilento was unsupported by any best man, and the ceremony was perform ed by Archdeacon Clampett. After the service the friends present were in vited to take tea informally at 'Woodspring' the residence of Capt. and Mrs. McGlew, which is just opposite the church, and there in the wide verandah the wedding party received the guests. No invitations had been issued, as Mr. and Mrs. McG lew and Dr. Phyllis McGlew had only just returned from England. The wedding presents were in the dining room, and tea was served on the round lawn at the back of the house. Archdeacon Clamppett insisted that old customs were not to be denied, and proposed tbe health of the bride and bridegroom in a happy, friendly speech, to which Dr. Ray Cilento replied ralicf nervously?, as he had been promised that the ordeal should be spared him. While the bride was changing her dress the party employed themselves in decorating the motor, with suitable shoes and confetti, and when Dr. and Mrs Cilento. came out to get in. Dr. Phyllis' charm ing dress of navy and grey jersey was almost invistible in the storm of rose leaves,rice, and confetti. Her hat,- as I discovered later, was a small one of navy silk with a fancy hatpin as its trimming. The honeymoon was spent at the Glenelg River camping out. Mrs McGlew wore a very smart costume of fawn gabardine, a coat and skirt with touches of pink, and a small hat to match..
     Raphael died on 15 April 1985 aged 91.
