Clan Lindsay Society AGM, March 2019

The AGM will be held on Saturday, 30th March 2019 in the Galloway Library, Colinsburgh, Fife.  The Meeting will commence at 2.00 pm and every effort will be made to keep the business to one hour.  Following the AGM there will be a short intermission and then a talk will be given on the subject  “The House of Crawford after Bannockburn: 1314 – 1414“.

This 100-year period is a very active time in Lindsay history   It spans the emergence of the Edzell, Byres and Dowhill Branches from the Crawford line.  It covers other events such as the Battle of Glasclune, Challenge on London Bridge, marriage to a Princess and the gaining of an Earldom.  The castles of Crawford, Dunnottar, Struthers and Edzell feature during this time-frame.

Following the talk Members can relax in the environment of the Galloway Library beside the log fire, explore the “Lindsay Cupboard” and enjoy a refreshment (or two) before adjourning to a Local Hotel for an evening meal together.

It is understood that Christopher Arnander will be present at the Meeting and will give us news of his latest publication soon to be released “A Lindsay Family Story: An Informal and Selective Chronicle of a Scottish Clan across Four Continents and Nine Centuries“.

We hope you can reserve this date for a chance to catch up with friends and family..
