When I first started this research, I was 
 originally searching for my "Family 
 Hystree" within the "Ogston Clan" with 
 the Ogston name. As I have continued 
 this search, there is so much more 
 then I had imagined to add, so please 
 bare with me while I add new names and 
 information and to also fix any errors 
 along the way. This is a project with which I 
 intend to tackle with great interest, 
 and gain as much knowledge of our 
 Ancestor's along the way as I can. 
 There are so many more names within my 
 Ancestry Family Hystree that I can't 
 wait for more information.

During my research I have discovered 
 that we come from a long line of 
 Royalty and descend from "King Robert De 
 Bruce" and "Mary Queen of Scots" and 
 "King Henry the VIII" just to name a few.

I have also recently discovered that we 
 are also descendants of "Convict's" 
 that were deported to Australia. A lot of 
 these are "Pioneers" of Australia who 
 have helped build our country as we 
 know it today. For example Benjamin 
 Singleton,(Our GGG Grandfather) his 
 father was sent to Australia as a 
 convict for stealing a handkerchief, and was 
 sentenced for 7 years. Benjamin 
 Singleton of course pioneered "Singleton" in 
 NSW and the town is named after him. 
 There are many more within the family tree.

Another interesting fact is we have a 
 "Pioneer" from within the family is my 
 Grandmother's Grand Father who is "George Hugh Robson"  who had helped in the Pioneering of Uralla in NSW!
 It makes me so proud to know that my Forefather's have helped make this  country in which we live today.

The Ogston Name...

Motto "Vi et animo"  meaning  
 "By Strength and Courage"

First found in Aberdeenshire where 
 they were seated from early times, and 
 their first records appeared on the 
 early Census rolls taken by the Kings 
 of Scotland to determine the rate of 
 taxation of their subjects.

My Great, Great, Grand Father James 
 Ogston was born in Cruden Bay, 
 Aberdeenshire, Scotland in 1873. 
 Cruden Bay is the name of a village in 
 Scotland, on the north coast of the Bay 
 of Cruden in Aberdeenshire. Just 
 south of Slains Castle, Cruden Bay was the 
 site of a possible battle between 
 Danes and Scots in 1012. The name of the 
 village is said to come from the Gaelic 
 Croch Dain {Slaughter of Danes}.

My Great Grand Father James Hutton 
 Ogston, came here to Australia from 
 Scotland when he was around the age 
 of 20 in 1922 and sailed to our 
 harbours on the ship named the "Barrabool". He 
 was born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland 
 1901 and sadly passed away at the good old 
 age of 94 in the year 1995.

From The King's of Ireland....

This recent information that 
 Charmaine has gathered to our mutual 
 side of the Family Tree comes from the UK 
 which relates back to the "King of 
 Ireland" which seems that we descend from a 
 long line of Royalty. The ancient Burgh 
 of Huntly is an attractive town set in 
 reflective countryside, standing on an 
 old established site of strategic 
 importance, which guarded the routes 
 North to Moray from Aberdeen and Strathdon. 
 The pretty Huntly Castle was built over 
 five centuries and sits in peaceful 
 surroundings overlooking the River 
 Deveron and became an important power base 
 for the influential Gordon Clan. The 
 Castle, initially known as Strathbogie 
 Castle (the River Bogie runs nearby), 
 has played host to many a famous 
 person including Robert the Bruce, 
 who rested from an illness here before moving out 
 to defeat the Comyn's at Barra Hill, 
 and James IV who attended a wedding 

Our ancestor, my Great Grand Father 
 {12x} Hueistan Du Mackay Of 
 13th Chief married Lady Jane Gordon 
 of Sutherland  {Married in 1589}, 
 of Alexander Gordon, 12th Earl of 
 Sutherland, by his wife Lady Jane 
 Gordon of 
 Huntly. {The Earls of Sutherland and of 
 Huntly, descend from the Royal House 
 of Stewart in several lines}

In 1562 it became the Headquarters 
 for the Counter Reformation. The 
 Gordon's 250 year rule came to an abrupt end 
 after the Battle of Corrichie, brought 
 about by the wish of the 3rd son of the 
 4th Earl to marry Mary, Queen of 
 Scots. The Castle was pillaged and it's 
 treasures sent to St Machar's 
 Cathedral in Aberdeen. The 12th 
 century motte can still be easily made 

The bagpipe music collection of Angus 
 Mackay of Raasay {in 1843 appointed 
 the first Piper to Queen Victoria} was the 
 beginning of standardization of the 
 classical piping form, the piobaireachd 
 {pibroch}. He wrote The Piper's 
 Assistant {pre-1847} and The Tutor for 
 the Highland Bagpipe {1878}. He was 
 preceded by William Mackay and in 
 1843 translated and revised his 
 Complete Tutor for the Great Highland Bagpipe 

I know my Grand Mother Marcelle {nee 
Robson}, would have loved to have 
seen the end result of all this hard work.

and Image Hosting Some Poetry written for Genealogy by various Author's Dear Ancestor Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care; it is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist; you died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew. That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you. Author Unknown ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ A Prayer for Genealogists Lord, help me dig into the past and sift the sands of time. That I might find the roots that made this family tree mine. Lord, help me trace the ancient roads on which my fathers trod And led them through so many lands to find our present sod. Lord, help me find an ancient book, or dusty manuscript, That's safely hidden now away in some forgotten crypt. Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts my soul when I can't find, The missing link between some name that ends the same as mine. Curtis Woods. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ The Family Tree They think that I should cook and clean and be a model wife. I tell them it's more interesting to study Grandpa's life. They simply do not understand why I hate to go to bed.... I'd rather do two hundred years of research work instead. Why waste the time we have on earth just snoring and asleep? When we can learn of ancestor's that sailed upon the deep? We have Priests, Rabbi's, Lawmen, Soldiers' more then just a few. And yes, there's many scoundrel's, and a bootlegger or two. How can a person find this life and awful drudge or bore? When we can live the lives of all those folk's who came before. A hundred years of course, no one will ever know. Whether I did laundry, but they'll see our Tree and glow... "Cause there dear old Granny left for them, for all posterity, not clean hankies and the like, but a finished Family Tree. My home may be untidy 'cause I've better things to do... I'm checking all the records to provide us with a clue. Old Great Granny's pulling roots and branches out with glee, Her clothes ain't hanging out to dry, she's hung up on the tree. Mel Oshins ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Your Name You got it from your Father; It was all he had to give, So it's your's to use and cherish, for as long as you shall live. If you loose the watch he gave you, it can always be replaced. But a black mark on your name, Son, can never be erased. It was clean the day you took it, and a worthy name to bear. When he got it from his Father, there was no dishonour there. So make sure you guard it wisely, after all is said and done. You'll be glad the name is spotless when you give it to your son.
