Published by AuthorHouseBooks
This book provides us with an accurate historical view of the Sinclair family alongside Scottish history
It explores the journey of the Sinclairs from their Normandy routes to Scotland. Sinclair is one of the oldest surnames in Europe and its ancestry goes back to William the Conqueror. The book identifies the origin and formation of the Sinclair Clan, shows the crest and tartans and their Earldoms and Castles. From these it guides us to places of interest today.
The Sinclairs were well respected and throughout the centuries, won or were awarded property and lands. They were greatly involved in the battles of the Wars of Independence and are first mentioned in the invasion of England with William the Conqueror. This book goes on to describe in detail, all the battles looking at the first Battle of Dunbar in 1296 effectively ending in an English victory to the first battle for Independence, the Battle of Roslin. It goes on encountering the Sinclairs in the likes of the Battles of Bannochburn and Culloden to the ill fated Invasion of England in 1648 with King Charles II. It then takes us on, ending the journey at the Union of Parliaments of Scotland and England in 1707.
