Re: Connections with Portugal??
For your Sutherland brother-in-law.
Just going down through the Earl line of the Sinclairs I see that
William Sinclair b.c. 1433 m. Marjorie Sutherland b.c. 1436 of Dunbeath,
Caithness d. before 1480. She was the d/o Alexander Sutherland b.c. 1395
and Marione Ile.
and John 3rd Earl of Caithness b. 1490 m. Elizabeth Sutherland b.c. 1488 at
the time residing in Duffus, Moray, Scotland, the d/o William Sutherland and
Janet Innes. chidlren: Willaim b.c. 1446 d. 1527 and George 4th Earl of
Caithness b. 1533 d. 9 Sept. 1582
John m. 2. to unknown b.c. 1500
John m. 3rd to unknown and had David of Dun b.c. 1540 d. Mar. 1560.
There are 48 Sutherland names in the index of Vol 1 of Pete Cummings
"Genealogy of Prince Henry Sinclair" See book section of website.
I was about to return the borrowed book "A Prospect of Sutherland" by
Gilbert T. Bell. I don't know whether you were on this site at the time I
gave a brief report of it???
It gives a chapter of the ancient history of the Sutherlands. It goes into
depth about family from about the 1700's and gives a good account of a
great family scandal. It tells about the Duke of Sutherland who built the
RR a branch of which went over to wick. He promoted many schemes to help
employ the people around there. I'm sure that some of our Sinclairs must
have gone over to work in the mines or on the RR. He brought in great
agricultural machinery but the land just wouldn't be fruitful. Really
interesting to read some of the nuts and bolts of the economy.
You know I always thought that Sutherland was a Swedish name. I knew a
Sutherland family in Wisconsin. In fact Harold saved me from drowning. I
am really curious about this.
No Temple surnames in Pete's books.
