David Lindsay, 5th of Dunrod (d 1521)
This is possibly the David Lindsay of Dunrod who is reported by TSP (Elphinstone) to have married, as his second marriage but her first, Isabella/Elizabeth Elphinstone (sister of Alexander, 1st Lord Elphinstone). The article in TSP confuses the issue by saying that that David died before July 1578 but, if this was the right woman, such must be a misprint since it also reports Elizabeth's third marriage as probably being in March 1523. HOWEVER, BP1999 (Elphinstone) shows Isabella, sister of Alexander, 1st Lord Ephinstone, as having married David Lindsay of Dunrod. This matter is discussed also under 'Elphinstone1'.
