It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Lindsay 1

: Lindsay of Craigie, Lindsay of Crawford, Lindsay of Dunrod, Lindsay of Ercildum, Lindsay of Glenesk, Lindsay of Lamberton, Lindsay of Luffness
BP1934 reports that the first ancestor of this family to come to Scotland, who did so accompanying King David I who r. 1124-1153, was Sir Walter de Lindissi, father not elder brother as shown below of William. BP2003 adds that Sir Walter was son of Gilbert de Ghent. We provisionally keep to showing what was reported by 'Lives of the Lindsays' but will probably revise this in the future not least because we suspect that 'Lives of the Lindsays' has been subject to some confusion between the families of Limesay & Lindsay and we are suspicious about the connection shown through the following Baldric to the de Toeni family and thence to the early Normans. However, we are also a bit suspicious about the recently-emerged claim that Walter was son of 'Gilbert de Ghent' not least in case there has been confusion with Walter, son of Gilbert de Gaunt and father of the Earl of Lincoln.
Baldric de Lindsay a 1086
1. Walter de Lindissi or Lindsay a 1116
2. William Lindsay of Ercildun a 1147
A. Walter de Lindsay of Ercildum a 1150
TSP starts with this Walter but mentions there being a Baldric de Lindesay a 1086 albeit without suggesting that he was Walter's grandfather. There are some differences between TSP and BP1934 on the next three or so generations. We broadly follow the latter since it agrees with "Lives of the Lindsays" but include some detail provided by TSP and 'Mathematical' not in the others.
i. Sir William de Lindsay of Ercildum and Crawford, Baron of Luffness, Justiciar b c1148, d c1200
TSP reports that William married twice, the first unknown being mother of Walter and the second Alienora de Limesi being mother of David & William.
