I have always found it difficult to understand how anyone can 'discover' a
or a Continent where people have been living for millennia.
Also, there were many 'visitors' to North America before the Vikings:
and Romans. Nevertheless, the Vikings should be given the credit for
peaceful trading with the indigenous people.
The first "Sinclair" (i.e. someone of our bloodline) to be born in America
was Snorre, the
son of Thorfinn and Gudrid. He was born near Buzzards Bay in 1019. Like
he was a descendant of Rogenwald 'the Mighty', premier 'jarl' of
Norway. He eventually
settled in Iceland.
