Title: 1779 Argyll List Livingstones at Movern

Hi Alan, 

The fact that McPhees resided near Livingstones at Movern and at Mull pretty much confirms what Roberta had told me about her Livingstons/McPhees originating from the Mull area. In fact these tenants moved around a bit so Livingstons and McPhees who sailed from Mull to Canada could have roots in both Mull and Movern.

As Mull and Movern are in beside each other we might expect to eventually see in the DNA project some matches among families from each area. Mull and Movern of course are places that our Livingstone ancestors moved into over the centuries and not our ancestral homeland which would have been nearby Appin, Isle of Lismore and whatever other clergy land once in possession of the ancient Bachuil (MacLea)Livingstones I would presume.  As Mull and neighbouring Movern is in relatively close proximity to the Island of Lismore and Appin and Ballachulish a long term DNA study of Livingstone families decended from Livingstons in these areas in Western Argyll should provide us with a better picture of how the Livingstones or Livingstons that by the 18th century came to reside within a several mile radius of the ancestral homeland connect as a family group. 

One thing that Roberta and her cousin has helped me to realize through the research is that the Western Argyll Livingstones were not all presbyterians or episcopalians, but within the 18th century Mull community there were a small number of Livingstons, the number not certain, who retained with great difficulty the Roman Catholic faith. I believe that some of the McPhees that lived at Mull or Movern were also Roman Catholic. Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia became home to large influx of Roman Catholic highlanders by the early 1800's.

regards, 

Donald
