Re: Jeannie's Uncle in NZ

Title: Re: Clan in NZ
Sorry, that was a typing error which escaped my notice! I know he was called Robert Sinclair and I think his middle name was Anderson because my Brother is also called Robert Anderson after my Uncle who presumably was called after his Father and I know my Grandfather was Robert Anderson Sinclair.
Thanks Ian.

    I was curious about the name of your uncle John Andeson Sinclair.
    I found a relative in my line who was named Robert Leed Sinclair. I thought the Leed as a second name was funny as it was more of a family name. It turned out after much investigation that he was born / christened Robert Leed and, after the early death of his father, migrated to Tasmania with his aunt Christian Sinclair and it appears that he adopted the Sinclair name. This Robert Leed Sinclair died in New Plymouth, NZ in the late Circa 1890.
    I wonder if your John Andeson was perhaps was born John Anderson and later adopted the Sinclair family name.

I think he may have been called Robert Andeson also, I do not know how old he was but my Father was born in 1907 and he was          quite a bit older than him. He was married to Elizabeth and I think he had 2 sons at least...one of them was called Peter and served in the Air force and I believe was a /is a   dentist..or this may be his son.
Hope you can help.
Your cousin...Jean Sinclair

I am not very good at this, but I wonder whether it is possible to trace my relatives in Dunedin? My Grandfather was Robert Anderson Sinclair  and he died 20th. March 1921 at Back Road, ST. Margaret's Hope Orkney. My Uncle emigrated to NZ in the 30s and lived in Dunedin.Yours in kinship. Jean Sinclair.
