There is only one Sinclair with arms registered in South Africa.
Mr A G Sinclair:
Arms: Argent, a cross engrailed Sable charged in the centre with a
crosslet in saltire Argent, in the canton a trowel erect Gules. Crest: A
bagpipe Gules, drones and chanter Sable, embellished Argent. Wreath and
mantling: Sable and Argent. Motto: COMMIT THY WORK TO GOD.

As you will note there is no swan.
I do know that on the Melck House, Strand St, Cape Town, a well
carved swan appears on the pediment.

I believe this relates to the Lutheran Church, with which this family were
involved, which is next door.
Sorry  I cant' help more with any more details, but may have been a blazon
on a signet ring?
