:-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "LINDSAY"

The widespread Lindsays claim Norman origin, the name from an "Isle of lime-trees' near Rouen and said to have been spelt nearly 200 different ways, as Limesay, Lindesey ect. in England. Under David I, Sir Walter Lindsay was the first to hold position in Scotland, the family settling by Tweedside, from Earlston to Caddonlea. Connected from the 12th century with Crawford on Upper Clyde (hence their chief earldom title), by the 14th they had extended by marriage to Fife and Angus. 'The Lindsays light and gay'--and some who were neither--took high rank in Scotlands affairs and battles. Sir David Lindsay of the Mount, tutor to King James V, could infuse gaiety into the reforming courage of his great drama of 1540 'The Three Estates,' recently given successful revival. The Lord Lindsay of 1740 was the first Colonel of the Black Watch regiment.
