David Livingstone Family Home

peacockcrossWell noticed! Whilst stopping at the traffic lights in Hamilton at Peacock Cross, Blantyre Project reader Tracey Lees noticed a plaque saying it was the house of David Livingstone. Tracey asked us to clarify the plaque. This is INDEED the case.

Whilst David was born in Shuttle Row, he lived not only in Glasgow and Africa during his life, but his family home was at 17 Burnbank Road, Peacock Cross, Hamilton, moving there in 1862.
