407. Sir James SINCLAIR 7th Of Mey And 4Th Baronet 1 (Jane SINCLAIR Lady Mey276, Francis Of Keiss And Northfield212, George 43rd Earl; 5Th Sinclair Earl Of Caithness173, John Master Of Caithness138, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born after 1670 and died in Mar 1732 in Kirkwall & St Ola, Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland.16

James's Death Details : Debtor's prison

The Mey Letters covers this period and that of his son James, and state very clearly that this Sir James died in a debtors prison in Kirkwall in 1732.


Facts:

Sir James Sinclair of Mey (died 1732) had a natural child to the sister of the Laird of Stirkoke in 1721.

John Sinclair of Stirkoke (died abt 1706) had at least two sons:
a. Francis
b. George

Francis Sinclair (son of John) disponed Stirkoke to his brother, George in 1710, as he had no sons.

Conclusions

Francis Sinclair of Stirkoke died in or around 1710, meaning George Sinclair was Laird of Stirkoke in 1721.

From this, it follows that the sister of the Laird of Stirkoke had to be a sister of George Sinclair, thus a sister of Francis Sinclair and as such, a daughter of John Sinclair (died 1706).

Final Conclusion:
Sir James Sinclair of Mey (died 1732) had a natural child to the daughter of John Sinclair of Stirkoke, who died about 1706.

Burkes Peerage states that this Sir James had only one son - perhaps they mean he had only one surviving son? The Mey letters make it very clear that there was more than one son living whilst Sir James was in Kirkwall.

James married Lady Mary SUTHERLAND.,15 daughter of James SUTHERLAND 2nd Lord Duffus 202 and Lady Margaret MACKENZIE,.202

Mary's Death Details : Y

Daughter of James Sutherland, 2nd Lord Duffus.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 576 M    i. Kenneth SINCLAIR 374 was born in 1708 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom.351

+ 577 M    ii. Sir James SINCLAIR 8th Of Mey And 5Th Baronet 1 was born on 26 Apr 1715 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom16 and died in 1763 at age 48.

+ 578 M    iii. William SINCLAIR .374

+ 579 F    iv. Margaret SINCLAIR .374

James had a relationship with Unknown SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke.,1 daughter of John SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke 1 and Jean SINCLAIR,.1

Unknown's Death Details : Y

This is one of the sisters of George Sinclair of Stirkoke (died 1744). He was the son of John Sinclair who married Margaret Sinclair, daughter of Sir James of Mey.

Possibly Frances who married Bernard Clunes.

The kirk sessions show that in 1721 a sister of George Sinclair of Stirkoke was pregnant with the child of Sir James Sinclair of Mey. Arrangements had been made to have the child removed from the county at birth. At this point, Sir James was in a debtor's prison and had been for some time, so it's difficult to see how the couple could have had an affair, yet the heir to Mey was still quite young, and one of Sir James employees did make haste to Kirkwall, where Mey was imprisoned, to apprise him of the news regarding his mistresses child.

Still, there are anomalies within the account as given by St Clair. It would be of great help to view the original kirk sessions for this.


5th cousins.


Their child was:

+ 580 M    i. John SINCLAIR Of Hollandmake .375

408. Margaret SINCLAIR 15 (Jane SINCLAIR Lady Mey276, Francis Of Keiss And Northfield212, George 43rd Earl; 5Th Sinclair Earl Of Caithness173, John Master Of Caithness138, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born after 1670. Another name for Margaret was Barbara SINCLAIR.163

Margaret's Death Details : Y

Burkes Peerage states her name was Margaret whilst St Clair's of the Isles states her name was Barbara in one account and Margaret in another - probably she was known as both at various times.

Whichever her name was, Barbara and Margaret are one and the same person - a daughter of Sir James Sinclair of Mey.

There is rather a large problem with this daughter. Burkes Peerage states she married Francis Sinclair of Stirkoke, however it is also stated that this Margaret Sinclair married Francis' father, John! She cannot have married both father and son.

St Clair's has to be wrong in stating that John Sinclair of Stirkoke married Margaret Sinclair, daughter of James Sinclair of Mey, as the dates do not tally, and it would also create a situation where the same woman married both father and son (her own son if St Clair's is accurate!) From this it would seem that Margaret married the son, Francis.

Margaret married Francis SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke.,1 son of John SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke 1 and Jean SINCLAIR,.1 Francis was born after 1680 and died about 1710.

Margaret's Marriage Details : This couple had a curious relationship! They were:
half 2nd cousins once removed; and 4th cousins once removed; and 5th cousins.

Francis disponed his estate to his brother George in 1710 (according to St Clair's of the Isles, it was 1610 - obviously a typo), as he had no sons, only daughters. Presumably he did this as he was dying. His wife does not appear to have died, so there would be no other good reason for him to assume that he was never going to have sons.

Other papers state that Francis Sinclair was a natural son of George, 5th Sinclair Earl of Caithness, and that he married Anne, eldest daugther of Patrick Sinclair of Ulbster.

These two accounts do not reconcile in any way.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 581 F    i. Frances SINCLAIR .1

409. John SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke 1 (Francis Of Stirkoke279, Francis Of Stirkoke215, George 43rd Earl; 5Th Sinclair Earl Of Caithness173, John Master Of Caithness138, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born about 1660 and died in 1706 aged about 46.

St Clair's states that John married Margaret Sinclair, daughter of Sir James of Mey, however, she married John's son, therefore cannot have married the father. At this point, who John Sinclair of Stirkoke married remains a mystery.

John was served heir to his father in 1681

St Clair's notes that this child was un-named and died in infancy, however, later research has shown that he was named Francis and did not die.

420. David SINCLAIR 159 (David Of Broynach290, James 2nd Of Murkle (Sir)216, James 1st Of Murkle174, John Master Of Caithness138, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born in Feb 1701,314 was christened about 1705 in Claredon Hall, Thurso, Caithness, Scotland,314 died about 1760 in Thurso, Caithness, Scotland aged about 59, and was buried in Thurso, Caithness, Scotland.

David's Christening Details : According to St Clair's the minister, Rev. Wm. Innes said "May the devil take you for wetting me" when he christened David at age four. (This seems a little unusual, as a child of four is usually well in control of his bladder, whereas an accidental 'christening' of the minister by an infant is quite common)

Hon. Francis Sinclair of Westfield paid his funerary expenses.

421. Captain Donald SINCLAIR 159 (David Of Broynach290, James 2nd Of Murkle (Sir)216, James 1st Of Murkle174, John Master Of Caithness138, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born in 1704 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom and died in 1768 in Sarclet, Wick, Caithness, Scotland314 at age 64.

"According to Henderson, David Sinclair of Broynach had two children to his wife, a daughter of William Sinclair of Dun, plus a number of illegitimate children to a servant called Janet EWING / EWAN. They were David Sinclair a soldier who married Margaret MORE / McKAY, Donald Sinclair who went to sea, and two daughters. David & Margaret had children James (died1788), in Reiss, & John (alive 1767). This latter James tried twice in court to claim the Earldom of Caithness, when it was up for grabs in 1765, but failed because he was unable to prove that his father David was legitimate. It should be realised that in Scotland at that time a marriage legitimised previous issue, plus issue could be legitimised by charter. When Alexander Sinclair, 4th of Murkle, died in 1765 the Committee of Privileges (in Parliament) awarded the Earldom to William Sinclair, 6th of Rattar, who thus became the 10th earl of Caithness.
In 1891 David Sinclair at Bellarine Victoria Australia and others made out depositions in support of a court case in relation to a claim by David of Broynach's descendants to the title of Earl of Caithness. The claim was unsuccessful. The depositions outline an ancestry for David of Bellarine back to Donald Sinclair 'the sailor', a sea captain who owned his own boat and who was a son of David Sinclair of Broynach. It seems that our Sinclair ancestors in 1891 were still nursing the hurt of missing out on the title in 1767, although by 1891 they were not able to state exactly the link from Donald the sea captain to David of Broynach. If there was a link, then it seems reasonable to suggest that Donald the sea captain with his own ship and Donald the illegitimate son of David of Broynach were one and the same person.
Unfortunately, Henderson's list of children to Donald who went to sea doesn't match the list of children to Donald 'the sailor' outlined in the 1891 affidavits. Henderson gives the children as an elder son, daughter Anne who married Alexander WILLIS a merchant in Banff, and four other daughters, all of whom except Anne were dead by 1767. Roland St CLAIR's work states that Donald the illegitimate son of David of Broynach and Donald the sailor were identical. Roland ST CLAIR's list of issue to Donald is similar to the list of issue to Donald given in the deposition by David SINCLAIR at Bellarine.
A further complication is that a claim was put in for the title circa 1891 by descendants of William Sinclair, a supposed son of Donald the Sailor. William does not appear in our David et. al.'s depositions except in the form of a denial of knowledge that such a Wiliam ever existed, but that if he did exisit, then he must have been illegitimate." - Peter Dillon, New Zealand.

predeceased his father (dvp)

Burkes Peerage claims John died, unmarried, in April 1749. St Clair's states he married Marjory Sinclair, but died with no issue. Marjory wasn't born until about 1749.

Events

John has conflicting death information of Apr 1749. This is the date Burkes Peerage gives for his death (without substantiation).

John married Marjory SINCLAIR,315 daughter of David SINCLAIR Of Southdun 315 and Marjory DUNBAR,1 about 1763.431 Marjory was born about 1749.326 They had no children.

Marjory's Marriage Details : Cousins-german (first cousins).
St Clair's states that this couple married, but had no children. This directly contradicts Burkes Peerage who state he died prior to Marjory's birth, and unmarried.

As they were first cousins there should be a papal dispensation or some form of allowance for this marriage to prove or disprove it.

Marjory's Death Details : Y

St Clair's states very clearly that Marjory married John Dunbar, son of Sir Patrick Dunbar of Northfield, her cousin-german. This is the only Sir Patrick with a son John.

511. Francis SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke 1 (Jean SINCLAIR356, George 1st Of Barrock244, Alexander Of Latheron186, George 2nd Of Mey140, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born after 1680 and died about 1710.

Francis disponed his estate to his brother George in 1710 (according to St Clair's of the Isles, it was 1610 - obviously a typo), as he had no sons, only daughters. Presumably he did this as he was dying. His wife does not appear to have died, so there would be no other good reason for him to assume that he was never going to have sons.

Other papers state that Francis Sinclair was a natural son of George, 5th Sinclair Earl of Caithness, and that he married Anne, eldest daugther of Patrick Sinclair of Ulbster.

These two accounts do not reconcile in any way.

Francis married Margaret SINCLAIR.,15 daughter of Sir James SINCLAIR 6th Of Mey And 3Rd Baronet 1 and Jane SINCLAIR Lady Mey,.15 Margaret was born after 1670. Another name for Margaret was Barbara SINCLAIR.163

Margaret's Marriage Details : This couple had a curious relationship! They were:
half 2nd cousins once removed; and 4th cousins once removed; and 5th cousins.

Margaret's Death Details : Y

Burkes Peerage states her name was Margaret whilst St Clair's of the Isles states her name was Barbara in one account and Margaret in another - probably she was known as both at various times.

Whichever her name was, Barbara and Margaret are one and the same person - a daughter of Sir James Sinclair of Mey.

There is rather a large problem with this daughter. Burkes Peerage states she married Francis Sinclair of Stirkoke, however it is also stated that this Margaret Sinclair married Francis' father, John! She cannot have married both father and son.

St Clair's has to be wrong in stating that John Sinclair of Stirkoke married Margaret Sinclair, daughter of James Sinclair of Mey, as the dates do not tally, and it would also create a situation where the same woman married both father and son (her own son if St Clair's is accurate!) From this it would seem that Margaret married the son, Francis.

513. Unknown SINCLAIR Of Stirkoke 1 (Jean SINCLAIR356, George 1st Of Barrock244, Alexander Of Latheron186, George 2nd Of Mey140, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1).

Unknown's Death Details : Y

This is one of the sisters of George Sinclair of Stirkoke (died 1744). He was the son of John Sinclair who married Margaret Sinclair, daughter of Sir James of Mey.

Possibly Frances who married Bernard Clunes.

The kirk sessions show that in 1721 a sister of George Sinclair of Stirkoke was pregnant with the child of Sir James Sinclair of Mey. Arrangements had been made to have the child removed from the county at birth. At this point, Sir James was in a debtor's prison and had been for some time, so it's difficult to see how the couple could have had an affair, yet the heir to Mey was still quite young, and one of Sir James employees did make haste to Kirkwall, where Mey was imprisoned, to apprise him of the news regarding his mistresses child.

Still, there are anomalies within the account as given by St Clair. It would be of great help to view the original kirk sessions for this.


5th cousins.

Unknown had a relationship with Sir James SINCLAIR 7th Of Mey And 4Th Baronet.,1 son of Sir James SINCLAIR 6th Of Mey And 3Rd Baronet 1 and Jane SINCLAIR Lady Mey,.15 James was born after 1670 and died in Mar 1732 in Kirkwall & St Ola, Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland.16

James's Death Details : Debtor's prison

The Mey Letters covers this period and that of his son James, and state very clearly that this Sir James died in a debtors prison in Kirkwall in 1732.


Facts:

Sir James Sinclair of Mey (died 1732) had a natural child to the sister of the Laird of Stirkoke in 1721.

John Sinclair of Stirkoke (died abt 1706) had at least two sons:
a. Francis
b. George

Francis Sinclair (son of John) disponed Stirkoke to his brother, George in 1710, as he had no sons.

Conclusions

Francis Sinclair of Stirkoke died in or around 1710, meaning George Sinclair was Laird of Stirkoke in 1721.

From this, it follows that the sister of the Laird of Stirkoke had to be a sister of George Sinclair, thus a sister of Francis Sinclair and as such, a daughter of John Sinclair (died 1706).

Final Conclusion:
Sir James Sinclair of Mey (died 1732) had a natural child to the daughter of John Sinclair of Stirkoke, who died about 1706.

Burkes Peerage states that this Sir James had only one son - perhaps they mean he had only one surviving son? The Mey letters make it very clear that there was more than one son living whilst Sir James was in Kirkwall.

551. Kenneth SUTHERLAND 3rd Lord Duffus 202 (James SUTHERLAND 2nd Lord Duffus375, Sir Alexander SUTHERLAND 1st Lord Duffus251, William SUTHERLAND Of Duffus192, Lady Margaret SINCLAIR142, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born in 1679 and died on 18 Mar 1734 in St Petersburgh, Russia at age 55.

Kenneth was a captain in Queen Anne's navy, and the West Indies on service when his father died in 1705. He seems to have remained in the Navy, for in 1711 it is related that in his own ship alone, a 46-gun frigate, he engaged no fewer than eight French privateers at once, and after desperate resistance was taken prisoner with five bullets in his body.

Unfortunately for Kenneth he joined the Jacobite rising and was imprisoned and his estates and title forfeit. After being released from the tower, he went abroad and became a flag officer in the Russian navy.

An excerpt from an Edinburgh newspaper of 3rd March 1716 (after the disaster of Sheriffmuir) says: "120 gentlemen of the Horse army, with whom were Lord Duffus, Sir George Sinclair, General Ecklin, &c, rode with all speed to Burgh (Burghead) in Moray where they embarked in open boats for Caithness, who did not know how to dispose of their horses, upon which General Ecklin immediately shot through his heart, and 15 more followed his example."

Events

Prison: joined the Jacobite rising, 1715 or 1717. After the Jacobite's failed he fled to Sweden, but was captured in Hamburg and imprisoned in the Tower. His ttitle was attainted and estates sequestrated. The Estates were then claimed by the Earl of Sutherland who claimed possession under the Act by which "forfeited lands, holden of any Subjecy Superior, were granted to the Superior remaining loyal".

He was freed in 1717 without trial.

Kenneth married Charlotta Christina SIOBLAD,1 daughter of Eric SIOBLAD Governor Of Gottenburg 1 and Charlotte Regina PALBITZKI,1 on 30 Mar 1708. Charlotta died in 1771.

The child from this marriage was:

+ 695 M    i. Eric SUTHERLAND Titular 4Th Lord Duffus 1 was born in 1710, was christened on 29 Aug 1710 in Twickenham, Middlesex, England, and died on 28 Aug 1768 in Skibo, Sutherland, Scotland at age 58.

552. Sir James SUTHERLAND-DUNBAR 1st Baronet 1 (James SUTHERLAND 2nd Lord Duffus375, Sir Alexander SUTHERLAND 1st Lord Duffus251, William SUTHERLAND Of Duffus192, Lady Margaret SINCLAIR142, George 4th Earl Caithness105, John 3rd Earl Of Caithness67, William 2nd Earl Of Caithness45, William 1st Sinclair Earl Of Caithness; 3Rd Earl Of Orkney38, Henry 2nd Earl Of Orkney27, Henry Lord Of Roslin, Earl Of Orkney (Prince)21, William Of Roslin18, William Of Roslin (Sir)16, Henry Of Roslin (Sir)12, William (Sir)11, Henri10, Henri9, William8, Henri7, Henri3, William 'The Seemly'2, Walderne1) was born after 1680 and died about 1739.16

James was a lawyer, an advocate, and after becoming a baronet in unusual circumstances, changed his name and started a new line, untainted by loyalty to the Stewarts. He managed this by marrying an heiress - Elizabeth Dunbar, only child of Sir William Dunbar of Hempriggs, in Caithness.

James married Elizabeth DUNBAR,1 daughter of William DUNBAR 1st Baronet, Northfield 1 and Margaret SINCLAIR,1 about 1704.

Daughter of James Sutherland, 2nd Lord Duffus.

Mary married Sir James SINCLAIR 7th Of Mey And 4Th Baronet.,1 son of Sir James SINCLAIR 6th Of Mey And 3Rd Baronet 1 and Jane SINCLAIR Lady Mey,.15 James was born after 1670 and died in Mar 1732 in Kirkwall & St Ola, Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland.16

James's Death Details : Debtor's prison

The Mey Letters covers this period and that of his son James, and state very clearly that this Sir James died in a debtors prison in Kirkwall in 1732.


Facts:

Sir James Sinclair of Mey (died 1732) had a natural child to the sister of the Laird of Stirkoke in 1721.

John Sinclair of Stirkoke (died abt 1706) had at least two sons:
a. Francis
b. George

Francis Sinclair (son of John) disponed Stirkoke to his brother, George in 1710, as he had no sons.

Conclusions

Francis Sinclair of Stirkoke died in or around 1710, meaning George Sinclair was Laird of Stirkoke in 1721.

From this, it follows that the sister of the Laird of Stirkoke had to be a sister of George Sinclair, thus a sister of Francis Sinclair and as such, a daughter of John Sinclair (died 1706).

Final Conclusion:
Sir James Sinclair of Mey (died 1732) had a natural child to the daughter of John Sinclair of Stirkoke, who died about 1706.

Burkes Peerage states that this Sir James had only one son - perhaps they mean he had only one surviving son? The Mey letters make it very clear that there was more than one son living whilst Sir James was in Kirkwall.
