About Lord Sir William Livingstone

Extract from The Scots Peerage (Volume VII) by Sir James Balfour Paul (Edinburgh 1910) page 439-443 (http://archive.org/details/cu31924092516222)

He died between 18 October 1592, when his name appears in a family charter, and 29 November of that year. He married, about 1553, Agnes Fleming, second daughter of Malcolm, third Lord Fleming, by his wife Janet Stewart, an illegitimate daughter of King James iv. Whether Lady Livingston survived her husband has not been ascertained. Both are said to have been buried in Falkirk churchyard, and two recumbent figures near the family tomb are supposed to represent them. More probably, however, these belong to an earlier period. Lord Livingston had issue five sons and two daughters :— 1. Alexander, first Earl of Linlithgow. 2. John, who died young. 3. Henry, who also died young. 4. Sir George of Ogilface, married Margaret, believed to have been of the family of Innernytie, and died about 1616. From him descended the second family of Livingston of Westquarter and Bedlormie. 5. Sir William of Culter, died 2 May 1607, buried at Dundrennan ; married Mary, daughter of Sir William Bailie of Lamington, and widow of Edward Maxwell, Abbot of Dundrennan. His son, William, married Helen Livingston, heiress of Westquarter. 6. Jean, married (contract 1 and 10 April 1575) to Alexander, fourtli Lord Elpliinston, and had issue. She died 15 September 1651. 7. Margaret, married, first, in 1581, as his second wife, to Sir Lewis Bellenden of Auclinoul, Justice-Clerk ; and secondly, after 1591, to Patrick Stewart, Earl of Orkney who squandered all her property and left her to die in poverty. _______
