Notes for Sir Knight Robert de LIVINGSTON 1st Lord Of Drumry
IV. Sir Robert Livingston of Drumry and East Wemyss, Knight, was a minor in 1367, but had come of age before the month of October 1381, when as Robeert de Livingston, Lord of Drumry, he was witness to charters relating to the Stirlings of Keir; and under the same designation, his name appears as that of one of the witnesses to the indenture of marriage between his kinsman, Sir John Livingston of Callenday and Agnes Douglas of Dalkeith, executed on the fifteenth of August in the same year.

In the will of Sir James Douglas of Dalkeith, the father of Agnes, dated 19 December 1392, the testator declares ‘I Forgive and release to Sir Robert Livingston his marriage belonging to me by gift of the Illustrious King David,’ but the name of his wife is unknown.

His name also occurs in documents among the Wemyss writs between the years 1386 and 1400, and under the style of Sir Robert de Livingston, Lord of Drumry, he is witness to a deed dated 15 June 1401.

The exact date of his death is not on record, but he evidently must have been deceased shortly after the last date

and there is a Monsr. Robert de Livingston in the list of Scottish nobles and knights slain at the battle of Homildon Hill (14 September 1402), he may have fallen on that field by the side of his kinsman Sir John de Livingston, Lord of Callendar, to whose contract of marriage he had been a witness as related above.

He was succeeded by his son, Sir Robert Livingston of Drumry and East Wemyss, Knight.
