David de Lindsay the elder, son of William de Lindsay, was an Anglo-Scottish baron of the early 13th century. He was the son of William de Lindsay, of a family that had migrated to Lothian from Lincolnshire in the 12th century. He held the position of Justiciar of Lothian, a post which his father too had once held, along with Gervase Avenel from 1208 until perhaps 1215. The date of his death is not known with certainty. He was the father of David de Lindsay the Younger, also Justiciar of Lothian.
