Anthony Robert Lindsay, 30th Earl of Crawford and 13th Earl of Balcarres, Premier Earl of Scotland was born in November 1958. He grew up in London but spent many holidays on the family estate at Balcarres in Fife, Scotland. Anthony was educated at Eton College and then went on to study History of Art at the University of Edinburgh.

Anthony's career in financial services began in London after leaving university in 1982. Four years later he was recruited as a Founder Director of the boutique investment management company J O Hambro Investment Management and became CEO shortly after the business was sold to Credit Suisse in 2000. He left the company nine years later with several colleagues which gave him the opportunity to set up a new entrant in the wealth management world in London, James Hambro & Partners. He is a Founder Partner and currently Deputy Vice Chairman of the Partnership.

In 1989 he married Minnie (nee Bicket) and they have four children, Alexander, Lord Balniel, The Hon Jamie, Lady Katherine and Lady Isabel Lindsay. The family grew up in London but took every opportunity to travel north to the Lindsay home at Balcarres. It was in 2006 that they moved there permanently where they still reside, a home lived in by the Lindsay family since 1585.

Anthony's interests span a wide range of subjects from art and architecture (both classical and modern) to the environment, farming, gardening and forestry. He has a particular passion for trees and woodlands and, by his own admission, spends far too much time with his chainsaw, pruning saws and planting spade.

Over the years Anthony has developed Balcarres Estate into an innovative business, adopting regenerative farming techniques and creating a top-end hospitality destination for short stay holidays in some of the Estate properties. Seven years he was instrumental in bringing together a group of American investors who have created one of the finest new golf courses to be built in recent times, Dumbarnie Links. The Links course is built on Estate property and has spectacular views over the Firth of Forth towards North Berwick.

Above all, Anthony is a family man. He takes enormous pride in seeing his children grow and develop and was overjoyed when his eldest son Alexander married Alli Corbat, an American whom he met whilst studying at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. Alli's mother, Donna, grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. Anthony and Minnie now have two grandchildren, Ludo and Alfie, who will take the Lindsay name and Clan forward in the fullness of time.

Jamie, Anthony's second son, will soon be married in June this year to Clara, which is a source of great joy to all the family.

Katherine is a property and project manager in a family office of a highly successful British entrepreneur and Isabel, who recently graduated from Newcastle University is building a career in marketing in London.

Anthony, Minnie and their children are mindful of the honour and privilege of leading the Clan Lindsay and preserving its extraordinary heritage.
