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