The Official Home of the Clan McLea - the Highland Livingstones
IN THE PARISHES OF APPIN, BALLACHULISH, CORRAN OF ARDGOUR & DUROR, 1762-1853
Note: Be sure to check out the Episcopalian Church Records which follow after the Church of Scotland Records at bottom of page.
This information was culled from Old Parish Records of the Church of Scotland. (Ballachuish, Corran of Ardgour, and Duror were listed as separate parishes from 1830 forward, but have been combined here for efficiency sake).
The following information was generously provided by Kaye Saunders of New Zealand. If you have any questions regarding these transcriptions, please feel free to contact her. THANKS KAYE!
Information from St John's Churchyard, Ballachulish
(Transcribed from headstones and parish records in August 1998 by Alan J Collins)
(The word Livingston could also be Livingstone - notes did not say which spelling it was)
Information has only been checked back against the notes that were written when transcribed (ie typed against handwritten) and note back against the original records still at St John's. We do hope to do that one day.
