14 Found by his parents in bed at his home on 1/10/11 - 11 Mopoke Hill Road Warrandyte - after he didn't show up to dinner for his twin sons' birthday.
They believe he passed away on 29/09/11 after going to bed and believe he died from a seizure.

Several months before he died he had a seizure at home which left him disoriented and doctors put him on medication to control any future seizures. The medication meant he was not allowed to drive, so he came on holidays to QLD with his parents. Less than a week after they returned to Victoria, he must have had a seizure in bed and died in bed.

20 Undoubtedly the most famous of the Scotson brood was an "Old Aunt Martha" who outlived all the rest of them and was well know to practically everone who bore the name. Born on May 8th 1833, she did not leave us until April 11th, 1929, so that on her departure she lacked just one month for her 96th birthday. Although born too late to meet her grandfather James (who died in the year 1812) by a few years, still her life span brought her close enough to learn most of the details relating to him, how he came to the smithy in the first place and what progress he had made during his lifetime. Remarkably, Aunt Martha did not change her name when she married, which is something of a rarity, for she married her cousin John Scotson, who like herself, had one of the seven fiddlers for a father. John was born at Wood End in 1819, but grew up along with his wife in close proximity to both Chisnall and Clayton Halls which seem to be occupied by all of the fiddlers and their families at different periods. After John & Martha were married they moved away from the Chorley district and occupied yet another landmark known as Holt Hall Farm at Gateacre, near Liverpool. Aunt Martha and her son, James Edward, who followed her were tenants on this farm for many years and it was here that I knew them best, for I had spent many schoolboy vacations with "Unclie Jim Ned" The Scotson Cycle (1725-1966) by William Scotson SCOTSON Martha (I50)
21 What the intentory, taken on 3 August 1584, of the goods and chattels of John Scotson of Abbot Park, does reveal is a real clue (not fully appreciated for some time) to the mysterys as to how his descendant Thomas Scotson c.1628-1691 became a comparitively wealthy man, not a 'millionaire' but still rich enough to send his three sons to school (almost certainly Hawkshead Grammar School) and the young one, on to university.

In January 1681Thomas had bought a messuage & tenement in Linda-in-Furness, from John Benson for 100, and on June 18 the transaction was passed in the Manor Court of Furness by the Steward there, one Curwen Rawlinson. And in July 1688 he appears to have sold the same to William Mason

James was the son of Robert Scotson. Through a photograph taken of James at the National Union of Teachers Conference 1895 we found that he had written a speech which was published in book form and also two other books. He was very highly thought of as a teacher and was awarded an honorary science degree and also made a justice of the peace. James was of a family of 7 brohters and sisters.
