James Ludovic Lindsay - Astronomer

James Ludovic Lindsay (1847-1913) was the 26th Earl of Crawford & 9th Earl of Balcarres.  His father, the 25th Earl of Crawford was the author of the "Lives of the Lindsays".  James Ludovic Lindsay's early interest in astronomy led him to build the great Dunecht Observatory at the family estate named Dunecht.

James Ludovic Lindsay spent his time between his English estate Haigh Hall in Wigan, Lancashire and his Scottish estate Dunecht near Aberdeenshire.

The balance of this biographical sketch is still being researched and will be added soon.
