The mention of some Sinclairs in Islay and Jura

Hi Sinclair clan,
In addition to the Sinclair list, I am on a list regarding the Island of Jura, because being very near Islay sometimes it has information that applies to my Islay Sinclairs. The newsletter is from JSBuie@aol.com. The following excerpt mentioned several Sinclairs so I thought I'd forward it JUST in case...
Regards to all,
Connie Sinclair
The following is a continuation of the Archibald Campbell of Jura 1764
debtors list which essentially forms a "heads of houshold" census for the
portion of Jura owned by the Campbells at that time.  For a discussion of the
place names please see JRN #56.  Kevin Byrne of Colonsay has communicated
that Kilvickcharmaig is in Knapdale  on the mainland.  The part in this issue
consists of mainly Islay people and locations which a few Jura intermixed.  
The final part in the next issue with be almost totally Jura.
