Jimmy Scott was born at Eucla, and his wife Myrtle was born in White Well in 1901. The Scott family lived at Eucla and Mundrabilla before moving east to White Well, Fowlers Bay in the 1920's.

The family then settled in Bookabie in the 1930's. Jimmy and his family worked and camped around different bores in this area while fencing, hunting and sheep herding.


In 1992 the Scott family prepared a community plan in an endeavour to get funds to buy a large farm west of Ceduna. Scotdesco Inc. was successful with this application to obtain the property and the community 'Tjilkaba' was born. The descendants of Jimmy and Myrtle Scott still reside, work and manage this community.

The name of Scotdesco emerged in 1993 after a community meeting, meaning the descendants of Jimmy and Myrtle Scott. Scott descendants and Co 'Scotdesco'
