Clan Lindsay Society AGM, March 2019

The AGM was held on Saturday, 30th March 2019 in the Galloway Library, Colinsburgh, Fife.
Following the AGM a talk was given on the subject  “The House of Crawford after Bannockburn: 1314 – 1414“. by Diarmid Lindsay, our newly appointed Secretary.

We were delighted that our Vice-Presidents, the Earl of Lindsay, from nearby Lahill, and Lord Balniel from Balcarres, were able to attend.  Lady Balniel very kindly allowed us to share some video clips from her son’s Wedding Ceremony which was held last September in St Andrews, with the Reception at Balcarres House.

Christopher Arnander also attended the Meeting and gave us a presentation of slides from 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“.

The AGM was a very successful gathering of the Society’s Members, a number of whom departed from the Galloway Library after the proceedings had finished to the Upper Largo Hotel, close by, where they were able to enjoy a very pleasant relaxed evening meal together in the dining room, feeling at home with the hotel’s welcoming Lindsay tartan carpets.

Publication of James Lindsay’s “A Lindsay Family Story”

The late James Lindsay, second son of the 27th Earl of Crawford and Balcarres (Clan Chief: 1913 – 1940), wrote an informal history of his branch of the Lindsays in 1989. It is now being published privately.  It will have about 420 pages, with over 120 illustrations, including some of James’s own work – he was a talented artist.  The price will be £30 (hardback) and £20 (paperback), plus post and packing.  Any interest can be notified to Christopher Arnander at
