Annie Knight Suite Overview


Annie Knight (6 June 1895 – 27 November 2006) was, at age 111 years 174 days, the United Kingdom's oldest person following the death of fellow 111-year-old Emmeline Brice on 26 July 2006.

Knight was born in Glasgow and already Scotland's oldest person since the 7 December 2005 death of Lucy D'Abreu, who was, at age 113, also the oldest person in the UK at the time.

She had been an active suffragette and helped to organize meetings and attended demonstrations. Knight was also an active supporter of Scottish independence and of the Scottish National Party (SNP). In 1962, she hosted the pirate station Radio Free Scotland in her front room.

Knight, who lived in three centuries, put her long life down to the Scottish staple of porridge, no alcohol (she had been teetotal all her life) and the occasional sweet.

She died in Aberdeen and was survived by her son Bill, 86, two grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and thirteen great-great-grandchildren.
