HI - this is a totally other intervention - but there seem to be links -
I think there might be links to the Sinclairs of Freswick, my family. An

Again, there are McKays who rented and subsequently owned a croft which
had been my grandfather's. It is all very tribal but it happens to be
the case. Jean Haddow
