Re: Andrew COTTINGHAM please contact me.
I've been having problems sending out mesages, and I don't know if you got the
one I sent this morning. Anyway, I've checked all my Islay information.
records for Kilchoman Parish don't start until 1821. However, I checked the
parish records going back into the 1700s, and can't find a Daniel Sinclair,
birth/baptisms, marriages or deaths. Neither can I find the birth of a
Catharine to Daniel
S. and Flora McKenzie. I've also checked for any Sinclairs marrying a
still cannot come up with any of them.
I have a copy of the book"Day Book of Daniel Campbell of Shawfield" which is a
great history of the island between 1767, when he acquired most of the island,
to 1798. It
shows many lists of tenants on the various farms, and although Daniel Sinclair
listed as one of them, there is a Daniel Sinclair who signed as a witness to a
1769, and another in 1773, as a servant to Shawfield. "Servant" could mean
other type of employee. The fact that he could sign his name, when most of the
only made their marks, might indicate that he was better educated than most.
I have a few questions for you:
1. Daniel was born 1794, do you know where?
2. Did he emigrate to South Carolina with his daughter?
3. He died in 1855, do you know where?
If your Daniel isn't the one in the book, I don't know if I can help you any
further. Although I have hundreds of Sinclair names listed on Islay, none of
them are a "Daniel"!
Rebecca - do you have any Daniels in the Carolina Sinclairs?
