275. John SINCLAIR Master Of Berriedale 159 (William Lord Berriedale211, 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) died in 1639 in Holyrood, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland118 and was buried in Holyrood, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland.118

"The Master of Berriedale, who took such an active part in the cause of the Covenanters, died at Edinburgh in the autumn of 1639, and was buried in the abbey church of Holyrood House." History of Caithness, J.T. Calder

"He had married a daughter of Cohn, Earl of Seaforth, and by this lady he had two sons, one of whom succeeded to the earldom. His relict afterwards married Sir Alexander Sutherland of Duffus, who, in 1651, was created Lord Duffus." History of Caithness, J.T. Calder

The dates given by St Clair's for John, Master of Berriedale, do not make sense. St Clair's states that on 11 August 1587 he filed complaint against McKenzie of Gairloch and others, for an attack against himself and a servant, James Paxtoun, in March 1587. This indicates that he was old enough to file a complaint, and thus of adult age, meaning he would have to have been born in 1566 - 20 years before his father. He also states that this John died at an early age in 1639. From these two statements, one has to conclude that the complaint regarding the attack was not filed by THIS John Sinclair.

John married Jean MACKENZIE,1 daughter of Cohn 'Colin' MACKENZIE 2nd Lord Mckenzie; 1St Earl Of Seaforth 1 and Margaret SETON,311 in 1634.312 Jean was born about 1615 and died on 31 Mar 1648312 aged about 33.

There seems to be some confusion about which Sinclair of Mey married into the Duffus family. St Clair's states it was James the 7th of Mey who married Mary, daughter of James Sutherland, who *should* have been 5th Lord Duffus, except the title had been attainted 2 generations previously. Other sources state it was James, 6th of Mey who married Charlotte, daughter of Eric (4th Lord Duffus).

Isabel's Marriage Details : Third cousins once removed.

Known to be the eldest son of his first marriage (St Clair's, p. 228)

Due to the debts left by his father the estate was heavily indebted and the rights were acquired by Patrick Sinclair of Ulbster, who assigned his rights to John Sinclair (4th of Assery) in 1675, and Sir George Dunbar, who assigned his rights back to George, and to his sons John and Patrick, in 1682.

336. Sir William SINCLAIR Of Canisbay & 5Th Of Mey, 2Nd Baronet 290 (James Of Canisbay & 4Th Of Mey, 1St Baronet (Sir)240, 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 in 1628 in Caithness, Scotland, United Kingdom and died about 1694 aged about 66.

St Clair's of the Isles states that William left the estate so indebted that it was sold to satisfy creditors in 1694, after Sir William's death (page 254), and that it was bought by his son James' cousin, George McKenzie, later the Earl of Cromarty, who reconveyed the estate by a disposition and deed of entail, in favour of James and other heirs in 1698. (p. 254).

According to the Mey letters, William was indebted to Patrick SMITH of Newark in Orkney for 6000 marks Scots in about 1664. Lord Tarbet (George McKenzie) had been cautioner for this. Over time the bond was assigned to Sir Patrick Dunbar, whose son, Patrick, in 1718, forced William's son, James to grant him the entire estate in tack for ten years, which was then extended to sixteen years. In 1720 Sir Patrick Dunbar of Bowemadden allowed Mey to be arrested for a debt of 40 pounds sterling. It took Mey's son, James (by then Sir James of Mey) till 1734 to dislodge Bowermadden from the estate. This is verified by the Mey letters but seems at odds with the account given in St Clair's of the Isles and other accounts.

NB: Nick Cram-Sinclair gives his birth and death years as 1648 and 1662 respectively. This is at odds with all known facts about Sir William, and has him dying at age 14, certainly not old enough to have sired 5 children and left the estate indebted the way he did.

Events

William has conflicting birth information of 1631. This date is very unlikely as he would have only been 17 at his marriage.

Was infeft in Mey as heir to his father, on a precept of clare constat by the Bishop of Caithness, 1662.

William married Margaret MACKENZIE,1 daughter of George MACKENZIE 2nd Earl Of Seaforth 202 and Barbara FORBES,202 on 4 Oct 1648 in Seaforth, Aberdeen, Scotland.349 Margaret was born before 1630 in Scotland and died in 1692 in Scotland.16

Check burials in Ross and Cromarty for Ann's burial.

Anne married Sir George MACKENZIE Of Tarbat, 1St Earl Of Cromartie,15 son of Sir John MACKENZIE 1st Baronet, Of Tarbat 202 and Margaret ERSKINE,202 on 6 Jul 1654 in Ross, Ross And Cromarty, Scotland. George was born in 1630 and died on 27 Aug 1714 in Scotland16 at age 84.

Fellow of the Royal Society (http://www.royalsoc.ac.uk/library/fellows/M.htm)

Scottish statesman, was the eldest son of Sir John Mackenzie, Bart., of Tarbat (d. 1654), and belonged to the same family as the earls of Seaforth. In 1654 he joined the rising in Scotland on behalf of Charles II. and after an exile of six years he returned to his own country and took some part in public affairs after the Restoration. In 1661 he became a lord of session as Lord Tarbat, but having been concerned in a vain attempt to overthrow Charles II.’s secretary, the earl of Lauderdale, he was dismissed from office in 1664. A period of retirement followed until 1678 when Mackenzie was appointed lord justice general of Scotland; in 1681 he became lord clerk register and a lord of session for the second time, and from 1682 to 1688 he was the chief minister of Charles II. and James II. in Scotland, being created viscount of Tarbat in 1685. In 1688, however, he deserted James and soon afterwards made his peace with William III., his experience being very serviceable to the new government in settling the affairs of Scotland. From 1692 to 1695 Tarbat was again lord clerk register, and having served for a short time as a secretary of state nuder Queen Anne he was created earl of Cromarty in 1703. He was again lord justice general from 1704 to 1710. He warmly supported the union between England and Scotland, writing some pamphlets in favour of this step, and he died on the 17th of August 1714. Cromarty was a man of much learning, and among his numerous writings may be mentioned his Account of the conspiracies by the earls of Gowry and R. Logan (Edinburgh, 1713).

The earl’s grandson George, 3rd earl of Cromarty (c. 1703— I 766), succeeded his father John, the 2nd earl, in February 1731. In 1745 he joined Charles Edward, the young pretender, and he served with the Jacobites until April 1746 when he was taken prisoner in Sutherlandshire. He was tried and sentenced to death, but he obtained a conditional pardon although his peerage was forfeited. He died on the 28th of September 1766.
This earl’s eldest son was John Mackenzie, Lord Macleod (1727—f 789), who shared his father’s fortunes in ‘745 and his fate in 1746. Having pleaded guilty at his trial Macleod was pardoned on condition that he gave up all his rights in the estates of the earldom, and he left England and entered the Swedish army. In this servicehe rose to high rank and was made Count Cromarty. The count returned to England in 1777 and was successful in raising, mainly among the Mackenzies, two splendid battalions of Highlanders, the first of which, now the Highland Light Infantry, served under him in India. In 1784 he regained the family estates and he died on the 2nd of April 1789. Macleod wrote an account of the Jacobite rising of 1745, and also one of a campaign in Bohemia in which he took part in 1757; both are printed in Sir W. Fraser’s Earls of Cromartie (Edinburgh, 1876).

Macleod left no children, and his heir was his cousin, Kenneth Mackenzie (d. 1796), a grandson of the 2nd earl, who also died childless. The estates then passed to Macleod’s sister, Isabel (1725—1801), wife of George Murray, 6th Lord Elibank. In 1861 Isabel’s descendant, Anne (f829—1288), wife of George, 3rd duke of Sutherland, was created countess of Cromartie with remainder to her second son Francis (1852—1893), who became earl of Cromartie in 1888. In 1895, two years after the death of Francis, his daughter Sibell Lilian (b. 1878) was granted by letters patent the title of countess of Cromartie.
