Living Sinclairs

The Sinclair family not only derives from remote antiquity; its modern-day members are also very active, in pursuits ranging from computers to football (soccer).

We must also look out for those present day Sinclairs who are carving a niche for themselves in business or in the professions. —Niven Sinclair

Having just returned from two weeks in Caithness and elsewhere in the north I am catching up on the Digest. Niven's article in #109 puts it well but we must not forget that in Caithness there are people like Kay Dunnet, who is secretary of Saltire [Noss Head Lighthouse Clan Sinclair, Caithness, and Iain Sutherland who has done so much to engender enthusiasm for Castles Girnigoe and Sinclair through his work with the Wick Heritage Society. Our heritage is common to us all and I am very grateful to anyone who takes an interest and particularly those who give so much of their time to the 'family'. We would all be the poorer without their enthusiasm and help — long may it continue.

The wider Sinclair family

If we look at the names of those who have contributed most to the Sinclair cause, you will find few Sinclairs but a great many paragenetic Sinclairs.

It may be folly to begin naming them but can we begin with the late Jim Whittall and Pete Cummings?

And go on to our ex-President (Bouschor) and our present President (Barker) and our genealogist (Server) and and our Clan historian (Fechner) and our great educationist (Fowler) and that great Clan stalwart, Jean Grigsby and the hundreds of U.S.A. Canada others who man Sinclair tents in every State of America and every Province of Canada.

We owe them a great debt just as we owe you John Sinclair Quarterman a big thank you for your patience, perseverance and persistence.

And, as for the Lairds, they have done us proud with their Pillarguri [Norway] presence and support in Caithness and in Norway.

We would all be weaker without the involvement of such people. They are more than kin. They are friends. My friends. Your friends. Our friends.

Let us welcome them as such.
Let us also thank God that we have such people on our side.
Let us be worthy of THEM.
