  Marriage Notes:

"David Lindsay of Edzell, who had sasine as fiar of Glenesk August 1584, succeeded his father. He was for several years in bad repute at Court in respect of the slaughter of Alexander, Lord Spynie, in June 1607. He had letters of slains from Lord Spynie's children 26 November 1616, and royal remission 7 March 1617. He had a commission of Justiciary in Glenesk 1622. He married (contract dated 27 October 1595) Margaret, daughter of John Wishart of Pittarrow, who survived him. They had issue"

from Scots Peerage (vol 1)

"The daughter whose name was Margaret (82) married Sir David Lindsay of Edzell and Glenesk"

from Wisharts of Pitarrow


It is hard to see how Margaret was the grand-daughter of Sir John Wishart and Jean Douglas, as is held by
Wisharts of Pitarrow, if they did not marry until 1576. The chronology suggest Margaret was a daughter of theirs. 1 2
