His clothing combined style and practicality with no gems. He had dull eyebrows. His eyes were deep blue. His look  was forthright and insightful. A man with excellent health, in  a great shape.

Born and raised in a family of a university lecturer. He had a younger sister. He showed interest in science from a young age under the influence of his father.  He was always among the best students at school . He worked hard on his physical skills, and  fencing lessons were his favorite. Livsey had always found people and their relationships very interesting. Maybe that is why he decided to study medicine, despite his father’s warnings, that this was a difficult and often ungrateful profession. After finishing his medical education, he joined the army with the idea of ​​quickly gaining practical experience. He worked for several years as a military doctor, where he improved his  medical and martial skills. His career in the army ended in 1745 when he was injured in the Battle of Fontaineau.

After the war he sought the opportunity for a peaceful and meaningful life. He settled in the province of southwestern England, where, besides his medical duties, he served as a justice of the peace. He became a close friend of the local squire John Trilony.  The local community truly respected him due to his personal qualities and dedication to his duties, and that is why Livsey became their natural leader. He tried to avoid secular vanity and preferred the company of ordinary people. Despite his attractiveness, he remained a bachelor.
