>Englishman of Norman descent, who in the reign of David I, acquired
>Ericidoun and Luffness in East Lothian. In the twelfth century the
>lands of Crawford of Clydesdale came into possession of the family by a
>marriage with the royal line of Scotland. His nephew and heir, Sir David
>married a sister of King Robert III, and was made by that monarch Earl
>of Crawford, while Sir William, David's younger brother, became ancestor
>of the Lords Lindsay of the Byers, Haddington, and through a natural son
>was also ancestor of a celebrated poet, Sir David Lindsay of the Mount.
>In the fifteenth century the Earls of Crawford were among the
>wealthiest, proudest and most influential of the Scottish nobility and
>took a large part in the civil warfare of that agitated period. David
>the fifth Earl, a trusted minister of James III, was made Duke of
>Montrose in 1488, a title never before bestowed in Scotland except on
>princes. In l644, the tenth Lord Lindsay of the Byers was created Earl
>of Lindsay and soon thereafter obtained also by a new creation the
>Earldom of Crawford extinct in the older line. John, fourth Earl of
>Lindsay and Crawford, born in October 1702, was distinguished General in
>the Russian service in the German campaign, l743-45, and the suppression
>of the movement of the Pretender in Scotland in 1746."
