Re: Callendar Livingstons

Hi Bruce, Thank you for that very informative summary of the Callendar Livingstons. As I say I am not well acquainted as yourself with the more precise details of that old very old lowland Livingston family with many branches. Some years ago I purchased a copy of the second edition published in 1920...

Re: LIVINGSTON, N.Y. – Before the Kennedys, before the Roosevelts, before the Vanderbilts, there were the Livingstons.

Hi Bruce, You have no doubt worked very hard to try and establish a family connection to the old Callendar Livingston family. There are so family branches of that very old lowland Livingston family I would myself would find that a daunting and very challenging task. But kudos to you for taking on th...

Re: LIVINGSTON, N.Y. – Before the Kennedys, before the Roosevelts, before the Vanderbilts, there were the Livingstons.

Hi Bruce, Once again thank you so much for sharing all of this very interesting information with the Forum. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. It is interesting that the Robert Livingston who acquired a large amount of property in present day New York State back in the 1600's though his Scottish ...

Re: Clans, Families and Kinship Structures in Scotland

HI Bruce, Looking forward to reading this. I quite enjoy reading any accounts of the early origins of the Scottish people. Thanks for sharing with the Forum. The popularity of DNA testing in recent years has also shed new light on the origins and connections of some ancient highland and lowland Scot...

Re: Maclea Livingstons/Livingstones in 19th Century Morvern Parish, Argyll

Hi Bruce, Well said Bruce or should I say well said William (Shakespeare). Dr. Livingstone was an extraordinary man but like most men he had a few flaws. His own family at one time or another felt he was neglecting them and putting his exploration priorities ahead of his duties as a father and I thi...

Re: Maclea Livingstons/Livingstones in 19th Century Morvern Parish, Argyll

Hi Bruce, I am afraid this has been a years old family history dilemma for me whether my ancestor Miles Livingston family roots were in Lismore or a short distance nearby along the Morvern coast. These days I have long since concluded that Miles Livingston's is descended from same Maclea ancestral l...

Re: Maclea Livingstons/Livingstones in 19th Century Morvern Parish, Argyll

Hi All, Morvern and neighbouring Mull were also greatly impacted by potato crop blight that hit Ireland in the 1840's resulting in a devastating famine, much illness and death for the people of Ireland. This was the heart felt response of a number of Morvern residents in the form a petition during t...

Re: Maclea Livingstons/Livingstones in 19th Century Morvern Parish, Argyll

Hi Bruce, You would be quite right. Indeed there is a "Myles" Livingston who was baptized in 1775 on the Isle of Lismore there to a Livingston family Donald Livingston an Christian Campbell I think they were residing at Cloichlea or some such place on the Island of Lismore and it may well ...

Maclea Livingstons/Livingstones in 19th Century Morvern Parish, Argyll

Hi All, The gradual but steady and significant population decline of my great-great-great grandfather Livingston's Morvern Parish Maclea Livingston/Livingstone kin is quite self evident as seen in the 19th century Census Records I made a note of years ago and include below. Elsewhere in other parish...

Re: The Lowland Livingstons

Hi Bruce, I very much appreciate the effort and research that has obviously gone into your very detailed account of the Livingstons which you are kindly sharing with our Clan Forum. The 18th century published Maclea account is one which our Clan has found of great interest in the past as it it somew...
