Can anyone help with my family tree as we have a link with Dr D Livingston. My connection is through Angus Livingston B19/10/1769 M Margaret Hall Mcphail 1806? in Mull. I would be grateful if you have information on this family tree

Hi J Cameron, There are many families with possible links to Dr. Livingston's family, although as far as we are aware none are direct descendants in the male line of the Dr himself.

Hi Kyle, I just had a brilliant brain wave. The Kilpinhon, Argyll where Duncan Livingston born 1773 or 1780 cotton weaver at HLW in Livingston Parish, West Lothian County was born at could be Kilfinichen Parish where Keith found birth records of the children of an Angus Livingston and Margaret Hall. Perhaps Kilpinhon and Kilfinichen is a bit of stretch though. I will see if I can find any other parishes or towns to Kilpinhon. regards, Donald

I'd have to look and I won't have time for awhile, but it seems plausible. I was thinking Kilfinan parish, Argyll, or Kilfinichen/Kilvickeon on Mull.

Thank you very much for all the information, i am sure it is the same Angus Livingston & Margaret McPhail we had been told he was a Chelsea Pensioner. They had 6 children, daughter Ann was married to my GGgrandfather again our information was that she was a cousin of Dr D Livingston, our Grandfather had items handed down the family that belonged to Dr D Livingstone thats why we always believed there was a connection somewhere. Sorry i didn't reply earlier, thanks again
