Alexander Sinclairs book states
> The Gaelic form of the name Sinclair is Singlear. The Sinclairs of
>Argyleshire call themselves Clann-na-Cearda or the Children of the craft or
>trade. It is probable that the name was given them by their neighbours >would
naturally take for gratned that Singlear meant shingler or >flax-dresser. The
Sinclairs of Argyll are out-and -out Highlanders. >
Forgive me for being obtuse but does this mean that argyle Sinclairs may have
