:-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "SINCLAIR"

The St Clairs first arrived in England with William the Conqueror, then in the Scotland of David I a branch became settled at Roslin, near Edinburgh. From 1379 these gave name to Scotland's most northerly clan and acquired the chiefship by a marriage to the heiress of the earldom of Caithness. Apart from local feuds with the Gunns and others, Sinclairs have frequently distinguished themselves in Scottish history. One Sir William fell in Spain, 1330, with the Douglas who was bearing Bruce's heart to the Holy Land. Then to Sinclair's green is counted unlucky, since so many of them wearing it fell with their Chief at Flodden, 1513. Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster, painted by Raeburn as Commander of the Fencible regiment he raised in 1794, was a most practical idealist, forerunner of social surveys and planned agriculture, and first originated the word 'Statistics.'
