Sir William Livingston of Balcastell and Kilsyth (d 1459)
m. Elizabeth de Caldcotis (dau of William de Caldcotis)
1. Edward Livingston of Balcastell and Kilsyth
  There are a number of differences between the record for this family presented by TSP (Kilsyth) and that presented by BE1883 (Kilsyth). BE1883 suggests that Edward's heir was William who married Mary Erskine (dau of Thomas, Lord Erskine ie. 2nd Lord) and was succeeded by William who married Margaret Graham who was succeeded by William who maried Janet Bruce and died at Flodden. We follow TSP as it specifically considers and rejects the information given by BE1883. It shows one less generation of Williams and identifies the William who died at Flodden as Edward's successor rather than of a later generation. It should also be noted that there is disagreement between these sources on the ancestry of the Livingstons of Jerviswood (see 'Livingston04').
