Title: Rev Robert Levingstoun of Skerling descended from house of Levingston of Wemes

According to Dugdale's visitations to Yorkshire  in 1665 I have the following info on my 8x g grandfather, Rev. Samuel Levingston(e) of Danby, N. Yks.

Robert Levingstoun of Skerling, Scotland, Clerke descended of the house of Levingston of Wemes in the county of Fyfe in Scotland and died 1658 married Mary, d/o ? Hebburne

Samuel Levingston(e) (Rev) b c 1613 or 1601 Stirlingshire, Scotland, came to Yorkshire in 1613 and died in Danby, N. Yks 25 Aug 1677.  According to Rev Sam's will he married Margaret Ratcliffe from Staithes chr 20 Aug 1615 d/o John Ratcliffe, buried 1704.

According to the Will of Rev Sam he had the following relatives in addition to his wife, Margaret
Rev Robert Levingston - brother, of Clidesdale, Scotland
Robert Levingston - nephew
Samuell Levingston - nephew
James Levingston - nephew
Hellen Levingston - sister
George Levingstoun of Ingleby (Yks) - brother

I am seeking info on Rev Robert Levingstoun of Skerling, the father of Rev Sam. and also anything on his various relatives listed above - particularly his brother, Rev Robert Levingston of Clidesdale, Scotland.

They were evidently not CofE as Rev Sam lost his job at the end of the Commonwealth for this reason.

They were extremely well-to-do.

Any info would be appreciated

Thanks

Beryl
