Alison Sutherland Graeme

Dates: 
1907-2009

Alison Sutherland Graeme's father, Patrick, owned Lambholm Island, on which the camp for Italian prisoners-of-war was built. After the war, when the chapel's condition started to deteriorate, a Preservation Committee was formed with Patrick Sutherland Graeme as president and Alison Sutherland Graeme as secretary. When her father died, Alison took over as President. The committee managed to contact Domenico Chiocchetti, the original artist, and invited him to return to restore the paintwork.

Harriet Sarah Mordaunt

Title: 
Lady
Other names: 
Her maiden name was Moncrieffe
Dates: 
7 February 1848 – 9 May 1906

On 6 December 1866, 18 year old Harriet Moncrieffe married Sir Charles Mordaunt, at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Perth. Less than three years later her husband brought divorce proceedings against her on the grounds of adultery. However her family claimed that she was suffering from insanity triggered by the birth of her daughter, Violet.
The divorce case Mordaunt v Mordaunt, Cole and Johnstone caused a scandal. Lady Mordaunt was deemed insane, and therefore her husband's divorce petition failed. She spent the rest of her life in various private asylums.
