My mothers Sinclair line came to Australia from County Galway in 1841. This
surprised me when I found it out because I had always assumed that they
were Scottish with a name like that. I don't know much about their
ancestors in Ireland itself except that they were alive in 1841.
I was over there last year and when I looked through a few telephone books,
I noted that there are very few Sinclairs listed .
I am curious about the history of Sinclairs coming to Ireland - whether
they have been there for a very long time or more recent
