Reginald Titheridge aged 99 - was he the oldest family member?

The last blog got me wondering 
“Who was or is the eldest family member?”
Has any family member made it to a century?”

I was only able to check the English death records so there may be other individuals who have reached a greater age than those shown below. (Note ages are as shown in official death records)

If you know someone who can be added to the list below, either someone who is still living or someone who has died, please add a comment
