Light house

Noss Head is not the only lighthouse with  Sinclair connections. In 1790:
President George Washington commissioned the lighthouse at Horton Point in
Eastern Long Island NY USA it is still in use.  In 1855: Land to build to
lighthouse on was purchased by the US government for $550, finally in 1857
the Lighthouse was constructed and lit with William Sinclair serving as the
first light keeper. Guess these things take time.
