George Hamilton Ogilvie

He left Oxford before taking his final exams to work for the IFS in Burma. Note: In 1864 the Government of India established the Indian Forest Service. The IFS managed the vast government forests of India and acted as a guide and model for the broader empire forestry movement, one of the precursors to modern environmentalism.

As Lieutenant/Acting Captain and Adjutant of the 2nd/3rd Ghurka Rifles he served in Gallipoli in 1915, Egypt 1915-16, Mesopotamia 1916 and in Palestine 1917-18.

     Dr. John William Ogilvie FRCS was born on 15 April 1938 at Swallowfield, Reading, Berkshire. He attended Christ's Hospital School and Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He studied medicine at Guy's Hospital, London, in 1961, where he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS). John had an insatiable curiosity, and was never satisfied with simple answers. He was interested in biology and in the interconnectedness of all life forms. Even at a young age he would find a patch of soil where he would plant seeds and watch them grow. John collected butterflies, moths and all kinds of insects to learn about their unique role in the natural world. He understood only too well the delicate balance between modern and technology and nature. He was concerned over the disappearance of butterflies in the countryside caused by farming methods that led to a dramatic reduction in the number and variety of wildflowers. His concern led him to study the problem and find ways to bring the butterflies back. He was a specialist in general surgery and later switched to medicine. He died on 28 November 1998 at Hitchin, Hertfordshire, England, at age 60. His death was caused by a ruptured aortic aneurysm complicated by a stroke and heart attack. His body was cremated and his ashes were spread over the English countryside which he loved so much.

The memorial plaque at his parents' gravesite in Barnhill Cemetery, Broughty Ferry reads "William Edmond, 2nd Lieut. 9 Border Regiment fell in France 27 September 1915 age 21 years". William is also commemorated on a plaque in St Luke's Church, Broughty Ferry. Excerpt from H.C. Wylly's account of the Border Regiment during September, 1915, taken from his book The Border Regiment in the Great War. "The 9th Battalion disembarked at Havre early on the morning of the 4th of September- strength 30 officers and 935 other ranks - and was pushed on early next morning in two trains for the Amiens area, was detrained in the middle of the night at Longueru, and marched to Flesselles, were was the headquarters of the 22nd Division. Here various contradictory orders were received, while many rumours as to probable moves were in circulation; but on the 11th the Battalion left Flesselles and marched some 13 miles to La Neuville for attachment to the 18th Battalion, and here was employed on pioneer duties of all kinds. Here, too, the Battalion seems to have had its first casualty, Second Lieutenant A.F. Sandeman being slightly wounded. Before the end of the month, several moves had taken place - from La Neuville to Herleville, thence to Bayonvillers, where one man was wounded and Second-Lieutenant Ogilvie was killed by the accidental discharge of a rifle." As part of the Imperial War Museum's WWI centenary project, William was featured on their website with this photograph on 11 Jan, 2012.

     Andrew Jameson Ogilvie was born in 1855 at Dundee, Angus, Scotland. He was a student at St. Andrew's University for one term. He sailed to Perth, Western Australia on the vessel Gem and arrived on 20 November 1872 according to the Bi-Centennial Dictionary of Western Australians. He leased 600 acres, then 2 larger properties of 1,000 and 16,000 acres in 1877. In 1878 he employed a cook and a well-digger in 1881. On his 1896 marriage certificate, he is listed as a Sheep Farmer. Later he ran a horse and cattle property with varying success. Andrew had a common-law wife, Jilba, an Aborinal woman, prior to his marriage to Ada Fisher. Jilbar was, almost certainly, the mother of John Jameson. After Andrew died Murchison Station was purchased by a man from India (the Shah of ...) All of Andrew's records were destroyed. Government records show Jilba as working on the station with "her 3 children". Jilba is buried in the same plot as Andrew - click on icon above to see details in Cemetery description. He married Ada Leila Frances Fisher, daughter of William Henry (Will) Fisher and Fanny Maria Sainsbury, on 13 January 1896 at The Church, Fremantle, Western Australia, Australia. Andrew Jameson Ogilvie died on 8 October 1906 at Watts Pool, Murchison, Western Australia, by drowning. An inquest was conducted and his death was ruled "accidental by drowning". It appeared that he had gone duck hunting,which he enjoyed, and slipped and fell into 3 feet of water which soon became 10 feet where his body was found. His wife said that he was "timid of water" and he apparently had tried to grasp an object to hold onto, but could not and drowned in the Murchison River. An obituary in the Geraldton Express, a local newspaper described Andrew Ogilvie as "a gentleman in every sense of the word, and those who knew him best doubt that he created a single enemy during the whole of his career in the Northampton District. While always taking a keen interest in public matters, he abstained from public participation, his retiring disposition preventing him from engaging in the turmoil incidental to party warfare of any sort of kind."
