Snippets: The Oakes family:
Charles Audouin Macklin Oakes (1907/69) was a scion of an industrious Derbyshire family - business interests included wine merchants. inn-keeping. brick-making. coal mining. pottery. pig iron & gas. The family tree can be traced back to 1568 when James Okes married Ellen Moorpage and over time the spelling became Oakes – family members included the scientist Lord Playfair who in 1847. at the request of his brother-in-law James Oakes tested a sample of a mysterious byproduct from the deep pits – Mineral Naptha – otherwise known as Crude Oil & in 1848 the site was leased to James Young (a colleague of Lord Playfair) & in due course Riddings became the site of the world's first oil refinery producing 300 gallons a day! James Young patented his technique becoming a millionaire in the process. he used his fortune to fund the explorations of his friend - David Livingstone. C. A. M. Oakes was just 9 years old when his father died in 1916 and in April 1918 his eldest brother Gerard (age 25) was killed in action whilst serving with the Prince of Wales's Own. In 1928 Charles's youngest brother James (age 19) died as a result of a car accident and so aged just 21 Charles became head of his family. The Oakes main residence was Felley Priory which had been acquired in 1822 by the Chaworth-Muster family (Mary Chaworth was the unrequited love of the poet Byron!). In 1960 Charles Oakes gave up his lease and the family moved to their Scottish summer estate which had been built in the shadow of Skipness Castle (dating from in the late 12th. early 13th Century built by Sven the Red (founder of Clan MacSweens) and later taken over by Clan MacDonald then Clan Campbell in whose hands it remained until 1843). In 1881 a new mansion was built by the Schuyler family and in 1936 the estate was bought by Charles Oakes. Whilst staying at Skipness the family held shooting parties and bred highland cattle with the pedigree name of Ciorsdan. In 1969 a fire broke out in Skipness House and Charles died whilst saving the life of an invalid guest Miss. M. Parks. his son James inherited GED67 and the car remained with the family until 2003.
