About David de Lindsay of Crawford, Lord Crawford

Sir David de Lindsay, Lord of Crawford, Lord of the Byres, and of a number of fiefs granted to him by King Robert, including 'le Cotis' held by his father under Sir Henry de Pinceney, first appears in history as a prisoner of King Edward in Devizes Castle, 1307-1314. He was witness to a royal charter 12 July 1318, and was one of the barons who sealed the letter to Pope John XXII in Parliament, 6 April 1320 asserting the independence of Scotland. He was a guarantor of the truce with England, 1323, Custodian of Berwick 1329, Constable of Edinburgh Castle 1346, and an ambassador to England 1349 and 1351.

He confirmed the charter to Newbattle of Sir Gerard de Lindsay in September 1327. He founded a mass at Lindores for his wife before 19 November 1355, she being then buried there. He married Maria Aberneth, widow of Andrew de Leschelyn (Leslie) and daughter (co-heir with her sister Margaret, Countess of Angus) of Sir Alexander de Abernethy, the dispensation for which marriage was granted on 28 November 1324, on the narrative that she and her previous husband were both related in the fourth degree to David de LIndsay of the diocese of Glasgow. Sir David granted an annuity of 20 shillings for the maintenance of Alicia de Lindsay, a nun at North Berwick. Sir David had a pension from Dundee traceable for many generations in the Exchequer Rolls. He died before 18 October 1357. [Scots Peerage, 3:10-11.]
