John Sinclair of Argyll, Scotland

I am interested in the Sinclairs who lived in Argyll, Scotland. I am looking particularly at John Sinclair, a mariner out of Greenock, who married Ann/Agnes Mains of Row of Ardintenny on 5 Feb 1778 in Dunoon & Kilmun parish. Two sons were born to this couple: (1) Archibald born 19 May 1780 in Ardintenny and (2) John born 26 Jan 1783 in Ardintenny. Ann Mains Sinclair's father, Duncan Mains, sponsored the children for baptism.

Does anyone know more about this family or about the Sinclairs of Argyll in general? I am hoping to prove a connection to John Sinclair who emigrated to North Carolina before 1790.
