Lindsay Family CrestThe Scottish surname Lindsay is an habitational name from Lindsey in Lincolnshire, England. This is first found in the form Lindissi, apparently a derivative of the British name of Lincoln. In the 13th century Sir David Lindsay of Crawford joined King Louis IX of France on a crusade but he was killed in Egypt. One of the crusader's sons Sir Alexander Lindsay was a Knight of King Edward I of England. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Sir Walter de Lindeseya, which was dated 1124, a witness in the Church Registers of Glasgow, during the reign of King David 1 of Scotland, 1124 - 1153. David Lindsay (1531 - 1613) was bishop of Ross, and chaplain to James VI, he accompanied the king to Norway to fetch his bride in 1589.
