William Lindsay (IV), son of Walter (III) (d.c.1247)

Biography
William appears as ‘son of Walter Lindsay’ as a witness to two charters of King Alexander II: 1/7/53 (5 Jan. 1220×22) 1/7/123 (7 Mar. 1226) He was one of the barons who addressed a letter alongside King Alexander II in 1237 anent the Treaty of York (1/7/267). He witnessed a large number of charters of King Alexander II. William (IV), like his father, was lord of Lamberton and sheriff of Berwick (in the 1230s) (ND, nos. 394, 426). According to Scots Peerage, William (IV) married Alicia, daughter of William of Lancaster, lord of Kendal, by Agnes de Brus, co-heiress with Helewise, wife of Peter de Brus, of her brother William of Lancaster. William (IV) seems to have died ca. 1247. It was almost certainly this William Lindsay who gave lands in Berwick to Dryburgh Abbey (3/350/23). Also, following on the work of Mr Andrew MacEwen, this William seems to be the William of Lindsey who gave 16s. annually from Berwick to Deer Abbey (3/350/24). In it, he refers to his two ex-wives, Alicia, already mentioned, and Margerie, countess of Buchan who had been married to William Comyn, who died in 1233. Their son Alexander was a minor until 1244 and William (IV) Lindsay seems to have filled the gap. There are other things about the charter that fit the idea of a 1230s/40s date. Sir Alexander of Stratton, a witness, appears in several charters of that period. More importantly, Samson persona of Slains is likely to be the Samson identified as a clerk of William (IV) elsewhere (3/254/5). This charter also identifies a brother, Duncan Lindsay, who does not seem to appear elsewhere.
