  f. Catherine Lindsay see #1# just below
TSP shows Catharine a generation earlier but, considering the dates, we suspect that the Seton source is correct to show her as of this generation.

  viii. Catherine Lindsay see #1# just above
  ix. Mary Lindsay (d before 1468)
  m. John Hay, 1st Lord of Yester (d 09.1508)
  x. Elizabeth Lindsay see #2# just below
  TSP shows Elizabeth, "perhaps eldest, contracted when young to John Lundin, son and heir-apparent of John Lundin of that ilk", as of this generation. Thanks to a contributor (ED, 31.05.15) for pointing out that, even after allowing for that "contracted when young", the connections with the Scotts of Balwearie (Janet, great-great-granddau of John Lundin, m. William 8th whilst Isabel, niece of this Elizabeth, m. William 9th) suggest that Elizabeth, wife of John Lundin, must have been (at least) one generation earlier than this Elizabeth.
  xi. Isobel Lindsay probably of this generation
  m. John Balfour of Dovan & Lawlethan (a 1509)
  xii.+ other issue - James (a 1477, rector of Benhame), Archibald
  B. Elizabeth Lindsay possibly of this generation, see #2# just above --
  m. (mcrt 21.01.1434-5) John Lundin of that ilk (a 1496) --
  C.+ other issue - William, Alexander
