Title: 1779 Argyll List Livingstones at Movern
Posted by: Donald (Livingstone) Clink
Date: 11 May 2008

Hi Edith, 

The list that I am using is not the original passenger list of the vessel Robert Taylor which was possibly lost around 1816 when Owen Kenevy  papers were destroyed by his North West Company captors on his way to Montreal or before that, but another list of settlers from the Robert Taylor who arrived at York Factory on August 26th of 1812 for the Red River which Kenevy  fortunately prepared and sent to Lord Selkirk with some correspondence in September of 1812. Owen Kenevy was the leader of the settlers aboard the ship hired by Lord Selkirk to keep order aboard the "RObert Taylor" which set sail on June 24th 1812 from Sligo Ireland with settlers from Northern Mull, Livingstons from Islay and some hired employees from Ireland. The Kenevy settler list sent in a letter addressed to Lord Selkirk on September 8th 1812 from York Factory, Hudson Bay Territory, can be found in the Selkirk Papers Volume 2 pp.560-562

Miles McDonnell may have prepared a settlement list for the 1812 settlers but it apparently did not survive. THere are a variety of lists available including passenger lists of later settlers that help to piece together who was at ReD River in the early years between 1812 and 1815 but MIles McDonnell the actual Settlement leader at that time did not apparently leave behind settler lists from this early period. At least none that later historians were able to find. Historians are forced to rely upon the Kenevy list as the earliest list mentioning Miles Livingston and the other original Livingston settlers to come to Red River. 

Have you been in touch with Mary lately regarding the Red River research? I appreciate your help with my great-great-great grandmother Janet Livingston, that document mystery regarding Jessie has now been solved by you and  I thank you for that. 

regards, 

Donald
