'Livingstone01' Families covered: Livingston of Callendar, Livingston of Drumry, Livingston of Livingston, Livingston of Easter Wemyss This family is thought to be of Saxon origin, the name being derived from Leofing (son of Leof). One theory is that a Baron de Leving followed ....ancientmssaxons03.php#saint target=_selfEdward Athelinga into exile and then he, or his son, came to Scotland with Edward's daughter Margaret when she married King Malcolm Canmore. Normally identified as the first (formally) recorded ancestor of this family, and probably grandson of Baron de Leving, was .. td 16 2Leving Livingus (a 1124) 21. td 15 2Thurstanus (a 1128) 2A. td 14 2Alexander of Livingston (a temp King David 1124-1153) td 2a name=linkhia td 14 2 There is some uncertainty on the next few generations. BE1883 shows Alexander as father of Sir William, father of (1) William (ancestor of the Livingstons of Livingston, the last of whom died at Flodden leaving 3 daughters), (2) Sir Archibald (father of Sir William of Gorgyn), and (3) Adam. TSP (Linlithgow) refers to errors by Douglas of the ancestry around this time. We follow TSP as supplemented by the Kilsyth web site referred to below as a Main Source but note that TSP is not certain on the descent from Alexander to the Andrew who married Elena. td 2 2i. td 13 2Sir William Livingston of Livingston (a temp King William 'the Lion' 1165-1214) td 3 td valign=top 2a. td 12 2Sir Archibald (or William) Livingston, Sheriff of Linthlinthgow and Stirling (d 1313) font ancestor of Livingstons of Livingston (and Stirling) td 3 2b. td 12 2Sir Andrew Livingston, Sheriff of Lanark (d 1297) td 4 td 12 2m.
