dc.descriptionBiographical interview with Cathy Doughty (b. 1924) who was born at Crivelton and then later moved on to Cotts. Both farms were owned by Matthew Marshall, who also owned farms at Polmallet, Brownhill and Bridgebank. Cathy describes life on the farm, domestic economy and foodways. Members of the family worked with the shorthorn bulls which were bred by Mr Marshall and sent to shows. Cathy remembers how the bulls were taken such good care of with special diets and daily exercise. Many were even sent to Argentina. Cathy also recalls the many travelling vans that came to the farm when she was a child, and the occasional shopping trips into Whithorn. She speaks about her childhood and schooldays and recalls the long walk to school. Cathy spent part of her working life in domestic service and she talks about some of the places she worked and her duties. She worked for Philimore, who rented Airler from Sir Amer Maxwell and also the Hopkins who stayed at Feasgal. Towards the end of the interview, Cathy talks about marrying David Doughty and moving into Whithorn. She recalled that there were 36 shops in the town at one time and describes a number of those she recalls. Other subjects covered include uniforms and special clothing, managing her money when she started earning, her own family and her thoughts on the future for Whithorn and the local community.
