the 10th Earl of Caithness was Lord William Sinclair.My g-g-g-grandfather
Joseph Wickens married Isabella Bruce of Scotland, born cir 1810. One
record says that she was the granddaughter of the Earl of Caithness. (Was

she was a descendant of Sir William Sinclair of Dunbeath, Baronet of Nova
Scotia. She lived and died in Centreville, Nova Scotia. Have ran into a
road block and don't know where to go from here. Any help would be
