joined the Royalists, and was imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle in 1649.

211. William SINCLAIR Lord Berriedale 1 (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 1586 and died between 1639 and 1643.

1592 - Charter of the Earldom on his father's resignation
1616 - arrested at the instigation of his cousin-german, Sir James Home of Cowdenknowes.

There seems to be decided confusion about just whom this William married. The Scots Peerage, St Clair's of the Isles and Burkes Peerage all state that he married Mary/Margaret Sinclair, daughter of James Sinclair (son of Henry, 5th Lord Sinclair) AND in other places state he married Mary Sinclair, daughter of Henry, 3rd Lord Sinclair. However, given that the line of the Lords Sinclair has been fairly well documented, it seems most likely that the marriage given in reference to Margaret, daughter of James, Master of Sinclair, is the correct marriage.

William married Margaret/Mary SINCLAIR,1 daughter of James SINCLAIR Master Of Sinclair 1 and Isabella LESLIE,1 ____________.16 Another name for Margaret/Mary was Margaret SINCLAIR.

Margaret/Mary's Marriage Details : Third cousins once removed.

Francis's Death Details : Y

Difficult to determine his approximate year of birth.
1621 he fought a duel with his relative, Sir William Sinclair of Mey, which tends to indicate he was 21 or older (or at least of adult age).
In 1624 he was styled Francis Sinclair, Laird of Stirkoke, but how he came to obtain the lands of Stirkoke does not seem to ever be mentioned.

St Clair's of the Isles states that Francis Sinclair was a natural son of George (43rd Earl) and Barbara Mearns (p. 247), however Burkes Peerage states that he was a legitimate son of George and Jean Huntly.

Possibly two son's named Francis? One natural and one lawful?

There definitely appears to be two sons by the name Francis - one of Stirkoke and one of Keiss and Northfield.

Elizabeth's Death Details : Y

St Clair's states she married William Sinclair of Rattar.

Elizabeth married William SINCLAIR 3rd Of Rattar; 1St Of Freswick,159 son of James SINCLAIR Of Reaster And 2Nd Of Rattar 1 and Janet BRUCE,159 in 1642 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom.118 William died after 1663.

1655 - witness at Sir William Sinclair of Mey's daughter, Elizabeth, christening.
1661 - acquired the lands of Freswick from Mowat of Balquhollie
Known to be alive in 1663 as he made his will that year.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 335 M    i. John SINCLAIR 4th Of Rattar 298 was born about 1643 and died in 1714 in Inverness, Inverness, Scotland299 aged about 71.

240. Sir James SINCLAIR Of Canisbay & 4Th Of Mey, 1St Baronet 1 (William 3rd Of Mey (Sir)183, 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 before 1603 and died on 20 Apr 1662 in Scotland.16

This is where St Clair's picks up the Mey branch as a "Baronetical Branch".

Appears in Charters in 1635 and 1636 styled as Sir James Sinclair of Canisbay.

NB: Nick Cram-Sinclair gives his date of birth as about 1628, however, it is difficult to see how he could have been made a baronet when he was 4 years of age, nor how he could have been styled in charters dated 1635 and 1636 as Sir James Sinclair of Canisbay at 7 and 8 years of age.

Also, his mother died in 1603 making a birth year of 1628 more than a little ludicrous.

Events

Created Baronet, 2 Jun 1631. 300

James married Elizabeth LESLIE,1 daughter of Patrick LESLIE Lord Lindores 1 and Jean STEWART,301 on 16 Jul 1628.16

James has conflicting marriage information of 17 Feb 1636.

Margaret's Death Details : Y

St Clair's says Margaret married Sir William Dunbar of Hempriggs.

Burke's claims that this Margaret was the grandaughter of Alexander and daughter of George Sinclair and Elizabeth Cumming.

Margaret married William DUNBAR 1st Baronet, Northfield,1 son of John DUNBAR 3rd Of Hempriggs 1 and Anne FRASER,263 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom.16 William died in 1711 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom.16

Sir William Dunbar was created first Baronet of Hempriggs in 1700 with remainder restricted to heirs-male, but on later reflection, as he had an only daughter Elizabeth but no son, and as he wished her and the children of her second marriage to succeed to his new acquired possessions, he executed an entail of his lairds in her favour and also asked Queen Anne for a new baronetcy in favour of his son-in-law. Elizabeth had married Sir Robert Gordon of Gordonstone, grandson of the historian, by whom she had seven children. After his death she married the Hon. James Sutherland, advocate, second son of the second Lord Duffus. As the children of the first marriage were already well provided for, Sir William wished the landless heirs of the second marriage to come into the succession. Accordingly, on Sir Williamís death, his son-in-law was created Sir James Sutherland Dunbar of Hempriggs with remained to heirs-general. The first baronetcy passed to Sir Williamís brother Robert, and still exists although now known as Northfield. Sir James Dunbar (previously Sutherland) was succeeded by his son and heir Sir William Dunbar (the couple had six children). During the lairdship of Sir William a writer in 1726 says Ackergill Tower was then "a strong tower and yet in repair and betwixt it and the sea is a good new house lately built". Bishop Forbes visited the tower in 1762; He mentions that the vaulted chamber on the ground floor was Ďthen used as a kitchen and that Sir William Dunbar had cut out some large windows and was doing up the tower in a very pretty and elegant mannerí.

Another name for Margaret/Mary was Margaret SINCLAIR.

Margaret/Mary's Death Details : Y

St Clair's lists her as Mary, daughter of Henry, 3rd Lord Sinclair; Burkes Peerage records her as Margaret, daughter of James Sinclair, whose sons became the 6th, 7th and 8th Lord Sinclair.

Margaret/Mary married William SINCLAIR Lord Berriedale,1 son of George SINCLAIR 43rd Earl; 5Th Sinclair Earl Of Caithness 187 and Lady Jane GORDON Countess Of Caithness,231 ____________.16 William was born about 1586 and died between 1639 and 1643.

Margaret/Mary's Marriage Details : Third cousins once removed.

1592 - Charter of the Earldom on his father's resignation
1616 - arrested at the instigation of his cousin-german, Sir James Home of Cowdenknowes.

There seems to be decided confusion about just whom this William married. The Scots Peerage, St Clair's of the Isles and Burkes Peerage all state that he married Mary/Margaret Sinclair, daughter of James Sinclair (son of Henry, 5th Lord Sinclair) AND in other places state he married Mary Sinclair, daughter of Henry, 3rd Lord Sinclair. However, given that the line of the Lords Sinclair has been fairly well documented, it seems most likely that the marriage given in reference to Margaret, daughter of James, Master of Sinclair, is the correct marriage.
