David Livingstone was born 1813 on the island of Ulva but later on moved to Blantyre on the outskirts of Glasgow for economic factors due to the fact his father could not support his expanding household on the island. So substantially has been created about Livingstone’s life in Scotland and in Africa wherever he fought to abolish slavery.
My interest in the explorer is that my terrific excellent grand mom, Ann Livingstone is stated to have been rather relevant to David but I have been unable to confirm this. Ann’s father is thought to have been a French soldier who died in the French wars around 1815 just prior to her staying born or when Ann was a baby. A clue as to the name of Ann’s father was that her son Robert Stewart named one of his sons William Livingstone Stewart and there was a sample in the spouse and children of naming some of their youngsters soon after kin.
Ann married a William Stewart, a cooper at Old or New Kilpatrick in 1834. They had 4 children, Margaret, John, Robert, and Janet.
As far as David Livingstone’s household are involved, he had a few Uncles and a few Aunties. They were being Richard, Mary, John, Charles, Margaret, and Catherine.
It has been claimed by the household for various generations that Ann Livingstone’s father was a brother to David’s father which would make Ann and David cousins. No trace of Ann can be found in the data of David’s loved ones tree which was received from the David Livingstone Centre in Blantyre Scotland. It is also by no suggests selected that the famous explorer’s complete household tree has been finished having said that as documents are incomplete prior to 1855. Is it just doable that Ann’s father’s father was David Livingstone’s grand father’s brother? The spouse and children tree of the explorer is incomplete and there is not a great deal information and facts about his grand mom and dad and past.
As for Ann’s father having fought in the French wars, I have observed some Livingstone’s who fought and died in these wars about 1815 but no relatives information and facts has been detailed in their facts. As was outlined previously, it is probable that Ann’s father was a William Livingstone. On looking into a military services web site I have located a pair of William Livingstone’s who fought in the French wars but no information on their family is stated.
As new facts is included to ancestry sites the very important lacking piece in our family members tree will no question be introduced to the surface area at some stage. In the meantime the look for continues.
