From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Lindsay, 8th Earl of Crawford (d. 1542). He was the son of Alexander Lindsay, 7th Earl of Crawford. He was a member of Clan Lindsay, a Scottish Lowland clan. His son, Alexander Lindsay, Master of Crawford tried to kill his father, and so was executed and disinherited. The 8th Earl then chose who would succeed him to the earldom of Crawford - David Lindsay, 9th Earl of Crawford, a distant cousin who was descended from the 3rd Earl. The 9th Earl then chose to leave the earldom not to his own sons, but to the heir of the executed Master of Crawford.[1]
