Note: DEATH OF MRS. JAMIESON, SEN.

DEATH OF MRS. JAMIESON, SEN. The news of the death, of Mrs. Jamison, sen., reached town on Monday. The deceased lady had not been enjoying the best of health for some time, but nothing serious was anticipated until about a week ago, when she took a bad turn, and her family were called. Mrs. R. Ashe immediately proceeded to Sydney, only to be a able to see the last of her mother, who passed away at the weekend at North Sydney. The remains were brought to Rylstone on Tuesday and were interred in the Glen Alice cemetery. The deceased was a notable figure in the history of Glen Alice, having together with her late husband settled in the Valley some fifty years ago, at the old Warrangee Station, which was most hospitable to all who came within its reach. I am unable here to pay a fitting tribute to the worthy life of the late Mrs. Jamieson, but will write a full sketch of her interesting career later. A family of three sons, Messrs. D. L. Mc Jamison, Ean Jamison, and Lyndon Jamison, and three daughters, Mrs. R. Ashe, Misses Mary and Kathleen Jamison survive (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 25 August 1921, page 9).

Note: Death of Mrs. W. H. Jamison

Death of Mrs. W. H. Jamison DAUGHTER-IN-LAW OF SIR JOHN JAMISON. Died in a private hospital at North Sydney on August 27th Mrs. Margaret Effie Jamison, of Rylstone. The late Mrs. Jamison was the third daughter of the late Mr. John Maclean, of Glen Alice, and was born in the Capertee Valley in the year 1846. Throughout the major portion of her lifetime she resided at Warrangee Station, Rylstone district, the property of her late husband, Mr. William H. Jamison, younger son of the late Sir John Jamison, of Regentville. Mr. Jamison died in Rylstone over 20 years ago as a result of an accident to his foot, which culminated in blood-poisoning. His widow was left with a family of seven small children and a station property to manage. The late Mrs Jamison's ability can be gauged by the fact that, un-aided, she successfully managed her business affairs for many years, only relinquishing control a short time previous to the sale of Warrangee to Mr. Jervois, of South Australia. She leaves six children to mourn their great loss (Nepean Times, Saturday 10 September 1921, page 1).

Late Mrs Jamison. THE LAST OF A GREAT FAMILY INTERESTING SKETCH A correspondent writes : - Mrs. Jamison, sen., whose death was reported in last Thursday's "Guardian," was the third daughter of the late Mr. John Maclean, of Glen Alice Station, Capertee Valley. By a strange coincidence John Maclean early in the nineteenth century, married an Isle of Skye girl who bore the same surname - Marion Effie Maclean - but who was in no way related to him. About the year 1820 Mr. John Maclean, born at Coudrac House, Isle of Skye, Scotland, came to Australia and with him many of the line old Scotch families who afterwards settled in The Nile and various parts of the Rylstone district. A few years subsequent to his arrival in New South Wales Mr. Maclean acquired the Glen Alice property by purchase, at auction, from the late Sir James James, for whom a highly lucrative appointment had been found by the British Government in India. Glen Alice in the heyday of Mr. Maclean's ownership held 25,000 sheep, in addition to several thousand head of cattle and horses. The old homestead, modelled on English lines, was widely known because of its comfort, beauty, and the hospitality of its Highland chieftain. It was said of Mr. Maclean that he never permitted a swagman to travel past his home with empty ration bags, or tattered boots or clothing. Glen Alice retained bootmakers and tailors and the wants of the needy at the request of the owner were invariably made good. In those days there were no railway lines, motor cars, telephones, or telegraph lines, not even distant centres of country civilisation. The requirements of a property supporting seventy odd shepherds and station hands had to be met by the services of the early gig and the bullock dray, having contact across the Blue Mountain Chain, nearly 200 miles away, with Sydney. Sugar and flour and other requisites cost more than was ever paid during the submarine crisis in Britain in 1918. Wild blacks were numerous, and bushranging episodes were not in frequent. Upon one occasion Mr. Maclean was returning from Sydney with over £200 in cash in his possession to pay his servants. Riding across the Bailbond Gap, near Sunset, he was accosted by a daring horseman in wild bush garb. The stranger drew a pistol, and levelling it at John Maclean's head cried angrily, ''Hands up, or I'll blow your brains out." The old man, who latterly wore a glowing white beard, obeyed the command. McIntyre, the bushranger, hesitated for an instant then broke in sternly. ''What's your name''? "John Maclean" was the reply. "Of Glen Alice''? asked the desperado. "Yes," said Mr. Maclean. "Then you can go on; I wouldn't hurt a hair of your head ; I thought you were Billy B-, and if you had been I'd have shot you as dead as a crow and then scalped you. But mind, I warn you, don't look back." The temptation was too great, and before dipping the range a backward glance was made. McIntyre shook his fist in the air and roared an injunction, but did not fire. Mr. Maclean was renowned for his physique and strength. In the early sixties, at Glen Alice (recorded in Australian Men of Mark) for a wager of £6, he carried a spade pressed bale of wool, weighing 553lbs., a distance of 150 yards on his back. It was a usual feat to take a full sized merino wether in each hand and cast both with comparative ease into the wash pool. Between the years '60 and '80 wild horse chasing and bull shooting were amongst the outdoor sports. Old hands, like Mr. Samuel Nicholson, of Glen Alice, will remember the heroic feat performed during the seventies by the late owner of Glen Alice, when, with his old horse pistol he destroyed an infuriated wild bull on the Blue Rock Flat in proximity to the Old Crown Station. He was walking across the flat with the bridle of his pony upon his arm, when the bull broke from a mob of cattle nearby. Turning in a flash to mount his charger Mr. Maclean was obliged to find that the bridle had been slipped and the pony was not there. Wonderful presence of mind stood him in good stead, and calmly drawing the horse pistol from its holster he levelled the weapon at the charging monster, which fell in a lifeless heap at his feet. The home of Mr. Maclean was open to all comers and strict Presbyterian as he was Monsignor O'Donovan was always hospitably entertained at Glen Alice. Mrs. Jamison's maiden name was Margaret Effie Maclean. She married William Henry Jamison, youngest son of Sir John Jamison. M.D., of Regentville, Penrith. Sir John Jamison was a son of Dr. Thomas Jamison, surgeon of the Royal Navy, who landed in Sydney Cove with Governor Phillip in 1788, and was the first medical officer of the city of Sydney. He came to Australia as assistant surgeon of H.M.S Sirius (1788). Sir John was the first president of the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales, Deputy Grandmaster of the Masonic Lodge, and was the organiser of the first race meeting ever held in the State. Binnalong, his blood sire, received the first award given by the Royal Society. Sir John left two sons, Robert Thomas, member of the first Parliament for the Nepean, and William Henry (husband of the late Mrs. Jamison, of Warrangee) who owned Baanbaa and Ingelabah Stations in Queensland and Warrangee, in New South Wales. Some years after Mr. and Mrs. John Maclean were living at Glen Alice two of Mrs. Maclean's bers came to Australia. These were Jonathan and J. D. Maclean. The former was Curator of the Sydney Botanical Gardens in (I think) the year 1833, subsequently becoming Administrator of Newfolk Island. The latter became the owner of the famous "Westbrook" Estate, on the Darling Downs. Before his untimely decease at Westbrook, Mr. J. D. Maclean was Premier of Queensland, and upon one occasion lent £300,000 to the Queensland Government to tide it over a period of financial depression. Mrs. Jamison's bers were the late Donald Martin Maclean, of "The Crown" Station; the late George Maclean, of Sydney; the late Alexander Maclean, of Co Co Creek ; the late Jonathan Maclean, of Mungrabambone Station; and the late John Hector Maclean, of Coolamitchell station. There were two sisters, Kate, who married Murray Davidson (son of the Surveyor General of New South Wales), and Jessie, whose husband was a professional man, named Marshall. Mrs. Jamison was born at Old Warrangee Station in the year 1846. Her husband died at the Globe Hotel, Rylstone, in 1891, as the result of an accident, leaving seven young children and a station of 16,000 acres in extent, who were to become the charge of his widow. The business acumen and ability of the late Mrs Jamison may be gauged by the fact that she personally controlled her interests with success, only relinquishing the actual management of the Warrangee Station a few years before its sale to take up residence on the Blue Mountains and later in North Sydney. During the days of its late owner, Warrangee may have been likened unto an elastic house, for it was always possible to find room for the visitor and traveller as well as a pleasure to dispense hospitality. The removal of one of the most picturesque figures in the social and industrial life of the Rylstone district takes place with the decease of Mrs. Jamison, and moreover, it means the entire disappearance of the last Australian link of a grand old Scottish pioneering family. There are many good people within the precincts of the old home who will long remember her neighborly propensities and kindly humanitarian acts. For many years in the Capertee Valley were the homes of the sick and afflicted visited by the late deceased at all hours of the day and night, and it was always a great pleasure to her to be able to administer or bring comfort to suffer-ing humanity. Like her late father, whose memory is revered at Glen Alice today, she never permitted a poor swagman or destitute wayfarer to pass the door of her home without dispensing whatever aid lay within her power. Eloquent testimony of a sorrowing and grateful community to this was borne by the large number of residents who came to the graveside of the Glen Alice cemetery to pay their last tribute of respect last Tuesday afternoon. The cause of the decease of the late Mrs. Jamison was cerebral hemorrhage. The end was doubtless hastened by war anxiety, but specialists agreed that the life could have been prolonged for another 15 or 20 years, but for the cerebral rupture. The end came peacefully in the presence of members of her family at North Sydney, her last wish being that her remains should be interred in the old cemetery at Glen Alice. The children surviving are six in number: Marion B. Ashe, Mary R. Jamison, Kathleen Jamison, Duart Maclean Jamison, William James Jamison, Lyndon G. Jamison. Deceased, H. J. C. Jamison (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 1 September 1921, page 16).
