Title: Origin of the name Levack

Hi Kyle,

There were lots of french protestants that settled I think in Britain in the 1600's with the edict of nantes revoked. Some also went to the colonies I think. I think is was Louis the 14th that responsible for the persecution and expulsion of french protestants? I found out recently there were french protestants with Samuel De Champlain at New France and there are some that think Champlain might have been Protestant given that he had a biblical first name but I dont know if that is true. 

Anyways I have an excellent book on French Protestants or Huegenots about those who settled in Canada that gives a brief history on them in Europe unfortunately it is packed away in the cupboard. I this wonderful knotty pine bookcase from Ikea that holds most of my favourite books but regretable my history and family history related book collection has gotten out of control and some end up in the book limbo that is commonly  known in these parts as my messy closet. Anyways I wish the book was handy so I could see if any these folks settled in Scotland. I am not sure to be honest were they settled. It would have been around the time of King Louis the 14th I assume. What was that mid 1600's. Not sure. Anyways Levach is not the french spelling I dont think. 

If you get a chance Kyle read about "Old Kate Livingston of Mull River in the Mull River Livingston messages from a week or two ago. In the local folklore of the part of Cape Breton she was referred to a the Witch of Mull River. There are apparently enough stories about her to make for an excellent Stephen King novel and she lived to be 104. 

regards, 

Donald
