Title: Lowland Livingstone mystery

Hi All, 

Thought I was start a new thread for fear of overthreading the Lowland Livingston - highland Maconlea connection discussions. 

I thought I should try and get some feedback from you all on this one. 

Thomas McLea of Edinburgh who I presume originally researched the 1743 Reverend MacLea document left us with a note that "the Livingston's of Westquarter,as representing Livingston, Earl of Callander and Linlithgow,attainted, are now the chief of that name and family." This is news to me and hopefully a lead to better understanding what happened to the Lowland Livington leadership after the demise of the Callendar/Linlithgo Livingstones after 1715. 

I was not aware of this, but glad I revisited Donald Macleay's website where he originally reproduced Thomas McLea's research document  with a copy of the REverend Duncan MacLea's 1743 history of the MacLeas. Seems everytime I reread this history I see something new that I missed before.
