Dr Norman Fraser Mackenzie & Family - 1970

Dr Norman Fraser Mackenzie, wife Audrey and children Audrey and Andrew.
Picture added on 02 February 2006
Have just discovered this website by accident and completely bowled over to see this picture of myself aged 4. (I am the wee mischief with a plaster on my knee). I am not sure who supplied this photo, but just to confirm my father's name was Norman Fraser MacKenzie. Mackay-MacKenzie was the name of Norman's Uncle William MacKay MacKenzie, who lived in Cromarty in early 1900s. Anyway, this is an amazing find - thank you to whoever is responsible for putting this in. I'd love to hear from you. Audrey

Hi Audrey - long time no see. This pic was taken by a professional photographer in Avoch who used to take photos in Cromarty. These were all passed on the Avoch Heritage Association who have kindly donated them to us. picture #1165 and picture #600 might also be of interest to you!

Thank you so much Garve. How nice to hear from you. Do you still live in Cromarty? All these photos have brought back so many memories.

I was surprised to come across this photo of my uncle Norman Fraser Mackenzie, younger brother of my father Alastair Ian Fraser Mackenzie, with his second wife Audrey Mackenzie. He has four children by his first wife. Dr William Mackay Mackenzie was my great uncle and here is his profile which I hope helps:

William Mackay Mackenzie (1871-1952) was a Scottish historian, archaeologist and writer, who was Secretary of the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland between 1913 and 1935, and also an expert on folk-lore. He was born in Cromarty, graduated MA at Edinburgh University and taught at Glasgow Academy between 1896 and 1912. He also had a DLitt.

In 1925-1926 he was Rhind lecturer in Archaeology at Edinburgh University and during the Second World War acted as head of the department of Ancient Scottish History. In 1942 he was appointed to be a member of the Commission where he had formerly been Secretary. He was a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London (FSA) and was made an honorary Doctor of Laws in 1949 at Edinburgh. As well as writing on medieval history, he published a major edition of Dunbar's poems.

Thank you. Was wondering if you are going to change the name to Dr Norman Fraser Mackenzie, as it is incorrect to say Dr Mackay Mackenzie. Incidentally, his father (my grandfather) was Donald Alexander Mackenzie, well known author and poet, having written over 50 books. Please let me know if you would like any further information on the Mackenzies who resided at 4 Barclay Street, Cromarty, built by my g/grandfather Alexander Holm Mackenzie. Kind regards Maggie

Audrey Mackenzie is my cousin and Aunty Audrey in the photo is my father, William John Fraser's sister. I am older than Audrey but remember playing with her in Cromarty. I am still in contact with Aunty Audrey and have fond memories of Uncle Norman. A lovely photgraph.

Audrey Fraser Mackenzie is my aunt and sister to my late father William John Fraser. I thought this a lovely photograph and remember visiting Uncle Norman and Aunty Audrey in Cromarty. I would enjoy seing Audrey and Andrew in the picture, my cousins.
Good memories.

I would like to thank the person who supplied the photo of my mother(Audrey), and please, you're welcome to contact me. I am the eldest child of my mothers, and was probably in training at HMS Ganges at the time of this photo.I joined the royal Navy in February 1970, but I was brought up in Cromarty and am having a severe attack of nostalgia looking through this site, it's making me homesick.

Hello Maggie, I'll bet the weather in Aus is better than here. I have a large german shepard now and at present living in Co Durham, but looking to move back home soonest. I'd love to see the photos please. Good to hear from you, and I'm flat out like a lizard drinking, as they say in Aus. How are you and the family?

Hi Audrey! I am also Norman Fraser Mackenzie, originating from Glasgow, I now live in London, and was staggered to learn that I share this unusual name. Ah well, there have been others and there may well be more, I'm thinking of changing my name to...Rumplestilstskin Mackenzie...that should do it!
Added by Norman Fraser Mackenzie on 29 April 2012
Audrey is my aunt as well, sister to my mother, Jesse Forsyth (nee Fraser)

Dear Rumplestilstskin Mackenzie - no, it doesn't sound the same! Please keep Dr Norman Fraser Mackenzie - it sounds good.
Added by Maggie Mackenzie-Goodman on 12 April 2013
Jesse Forsyth was my aunt, married to my father's brother in Dingwall, and I have long wondered what had happened to the Fraser girls. Jessie went to Canada and we went to Nigeria and thus all lost touch. I was very happy to find this photo.
