The story is not without interest though. Lord George Murray surprised Hawley, who was camped at Falkirk, and drove his force back to Edinburgh. The clash occurred on a windy, sleety day in January 1746. e Livingstons, Earls of Linlithgow, had Jacobite leanings and their estates were forfeited after the Fifteen but the Falkirk ‘Bairns’ (as the town folk are still called) refused to pay rent to the York Building Company and the estate was leased back to the Countess of Kilmarnock, the Livingstons’ heiress, whose husband had ‘come out’ for Prince Charles, was captured and beheaded. Ironically, Hawley, leader of the government forces, was dining with the countess when the Jacobites attacked his forces. Callendar House (described below) saw most of the regular figures of note: Mary Queen of Scots, Cromwell (it was Monck’s Scottish HQ) and Charles Edward Stuart, en route for Derby. One of the unenthusiastic participants in the 1746 battle was the Gaelic poet Duncan Ban MacIntyre, who is forever linked with Ben Dorain. An earlier Livingston was principal guardian of Mary Queen of Scots, and the nobles at Callendar House in Falkirk had to decide if Mary and Edward, son of Henry VIII, should be betrothed. ey decided no, and Mary went off to France for safety. One of her ‘Four Marys’ was Mary Livingston.
