Since we're told John Boggs was born in Scotland in 1622, there doesn't seem to be any reason to think his parents would have ever been in Ireland.  But there could be other questions about this family.

Alexander Livingstone and Isabel Hunter had four children baptised in Falkirk  between 1617 and 1622 - Elizabeth, Robert, Hew, and John. Sources from Scotland Baptisms are on Familysearch e.g.

"Scotland Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XT2M-HFV : 10 February 2018), Allexander Levingstoun in entry for Hewgh Levingstoun, ; citing Falkirk, Stirlingshire, Scotland, reference 2:17TSGSR, index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 1,041,942.

I can't see any source for a marriage but I would be looking in Falkirk about 1615 on that evidence not Londonderry 1622. Perhaps someone has estimated the marriage from John and did not know of the earlier children? I cannot see any connection of this couple to the earl of Callendar/Linlithgow mentioned on the page; they are quite well documented and no mention of an Isabel Hunter, or of the name change to Boggs. Quite a lot to work on there!
