S.&nbsp; There are references to "Sinclairs in England" but these are primarily in connection with William and the Norman Invasion of 1066.</FONT></DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">THe Sinclairs of England book has no author listed, which seems most unusual, but I'll bet Niven or someone with his background in this subject knows who wrote it.&nbsp; It was published in London by Trubner &amp; Co, Ludgate Hill in 1887. and the copy I have was a product of Ballantine Press, of London and Ediburgh.&nbsp; It's a hard copy, and in very good condition.&nbsp; When I have more serious time at my disposal, I will go through your message and see what I can find that might be helpful, then I will post the results on the Sinclair net for all to share.&nbsp; Hope to do this in the next week, so keep tuned in.</FONT></DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">With the arrival of "Sinclair" warriors from Normandy in 1066, I believe none could be called "Scots".&nbsp; This begs the question "Did those who came to Wales became "Welsh Sinclairs?"&nbsp; Etc, etc.&nbsp; We'll get to the bottom of this eventually, but mainly I just hope to see your question answered, and that's really worth&nbsp; the effort, right!</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face="Comic Sans MS">More later&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Richard Ray Lower</FONT></DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV></BODY></HTML>
