History of the Lindsay family

The Scottish House of Lindsay, of which the current Earl of Crawford and Balcarres is chief, was founded by Sir Walter de Lindsay, by 1116. Sir Walter’s father, Gilbert de Ghent, was of Flemish extraction, the son of the Count of Alost in southern Brabant. Early in the 12th century, David, the younger brother of King Alexander I of Scotland, acquired the earldom of Huntingdon by marriage in 1113/4 to Maud de Lens. for more click here
