David Lindsay (III) of Barnweill (d.c.1268)

Biography
David Lindsay III was likely the son of David Lindsay (II) (d. 1241) and Christiana Hose of Craigie (AYR). David (III) first appears on record in 1233 as David Lindsay of Barnweill, an estate which abuts Craigie in Kyle Stewart. David Lindsay of Barnweill set up a pittance in 1233 at Balmerino Abbey in memory of Queen Ermengarde, who he called ‘his lady’ (3/350/25). Ermengarde had founded the abbey. David Lindsay 'of Barnweill' got Garleton and Byres in ELO from Gilbert Marshal, earl of Pembroke, 1233 × 41 (3/26/1). Gilbert had married Margaret, daughter of King William and Ermengarde, in 1235. This gift and the apparent relationship with Queen Ermengarde are thus potentially linked. It is this David (III), not David (II), who was justiciar of Lothian in the 1240s. It seems likely that Scots Peerage has created two Davids out of one here, based largely on the attestation of a ‘David Lindsay junior’ to Alexander Stewart’s charter to Balmerino renewing the gift of his father (Balmerino Liber, no. 24). However, if this charter dates from early in Alexander’s time as steward (1241×81), as is likely, then David Lindsay (II) might have still been alive or only very recently deceased. In any event, David Lindsay (III) seems to have been the David who was part of King Alexander III’s council of nobles in 1255 (1/8/23). He was also chamberlain of the king of Scotland from 1255 to 1257. (CDS, i, nos. 1982, 1987, 2013, 2015). Scots Peerage claims, based on Dugdale, that David Lindsay was in King Louis’ crusade of 1268-69, and died in Egypt. A charter of David's son William Lindsay, lord of Symington, for Newbattle Abbey was made for the souls of his father David and his mother Margaret Lindsay. (MHH)
