Lindsay Tartan: This family were of Norman descent and were found in the border counties in the 12th century. Sir David Lindsay of Glenesk married the daughter of the Scottish king and was created Earl of Crawford in 1398. The 4th Earl, sometimes known as Earl of Beardie plotted against the Crown but was soundly defeated by the Earl of Huntley in 1452 and was deprived of this land and titles. He was later pardoned. His son the 5th Earl was created Duke of Montrose in 1488, which was the first Dukedom conferred to a Scott who was not in the Royal Family. On his death in 1495 the Dukedom ended. The Lindsays were known as 'The Lightsome Lindsays'
