William Lindsay was a Scottish diplomat and colonial governor. He was the second son of Sir David Lindsay of Evelick, of the Lindsay of Evelix family. He served as Great Britain's Resident to the Republic of Venice, as well as the Governor of Tobago in 1791. Like his elder brother John, he predeceased their father, and so David's titles passed to his third son, Charles.
