James Livingston of West Laroch, Ballachulish

Hi All,

Of interest to descendants of James Livingston and Isabella Clark is the info below. Also I recently noticed that there is apparently a rare surviving 19th century photo of James Livingston and Isabella Clark on ancestry.co.uk

From a previous post of mine:
James Livingston of West Laroch, Ballachullish slate miner and his wife Isabel Clark and family travelled to Australia in 1852 aboard the Marco Polo
1851 Census
James Livingston 45 Appin
Isabel Livingston 41 Appin (Isabel Clark)
John Livingston 13 Appin
Duncan Livingston 11
Ann Livingston 8
James Livingston 6
Mary Livingston 4

Passenger List Marco Polo arrived Sept 25, 1852 Melbourne Australia
James Livingston 38
Isabel 36
Duncan 12
Ann 10
James 8
Mary 5

James Livingston born abt. 1805 or 1806 died in 1885 at Kerang, Victoria, Australia
Father unknown John Livingston? Mother Mary Fraser
Note: James Livingston like a number of other Ballachulish area Livingstons were Episcopalians and as such some of the church records do not survive. There does not appear to be a birth or baptism record for James and it be in the Church of Scotland parish record collection. The 1851 Census info is confusing somewhat referring to James and family as being born in Appin likely does not mean he and his family were born in Appin Parish, but in the district of Appin which at one time include Duror and included the area of Ballachulish where James Lived and was likely born.

Interesting information on the passenger ship Marco Polo
