Gerard Lindsay, son of David (I) (d.1249)

Biography
Gerard Lindsay was the son of David (I) and brother of David (II) and grandson of William (II). All of this is made explicit in his charters. He renewed the gifts of his predecessors to Newbattle Abbey in Crawford, suggesting that Gerard was lord of Crawford Lindsay in the 1240s (3/350/21; 3/350/22). In May 1241, Gerard did homage to King Henry III and took seisin of his English lands (part of the de Limesy inheritance). (CDS, i, nos. 1532, 1533). He is called Gerard son of Margerie of Lindsey in a 1243 English document (CDS, i, no. 1614), an agreement at Northampton between Gerard and Geoffrey of Barton Gerard was dead by 10 April 1249 (CDS, i, no. 1758).
