Title: Where Are Your McLea/Livingstones From?

Hi folks,

The forum has been a little quite the past few days. I thought it a good opportunity to now ask the question above.

To give us all a better picture of the migration of our Clan families both within Scotland and outwith across the globe, I thought we could talk about our last known ancestor and where they lived and also if you know of any other Clan families in that area?

Looking forward to hearing from as many on the forum as possible to answer old questions and create new ones to be researched!

1. Name?
2. Last Known Ancestor -LKA.?
3. Migration to present location of the family line.?
4. Others of the Name.

For example;

1. McClee

2.Catherine Clee born ca. 1815. Raphoe, Donegal Ireland.

3.Her daughter Margaret Clee Ferrie, born ca. 1845 Raphoe, Donegal, married Neilston, Renfrew. Later lived in Glasgow. Her grandson John Patrick Devine moved to Australia, ca. 1925.

4. Clee and Clea are used by a small group of families in Raphoe, Donegal, near Lough Swilly, these families were catholic. 
There are other MacClay families in the area. I suspect that many of the McClay's came as part of the Ulster Plantations. This suggests that the Clee's settled at an earlier time in Donegal.
What is recorded is that a catholic McLea of Lindsaig heir settled in Donegal after fighting under the banner of Campbell of Argyll for the King of Spain. McClee is recorded in the Lamont Papers regarding the sasine of Tollard Begg, this is near the old feudal lands of Lindsaig, Argyll.

All the best!
