All,

I'd like to thank everyone as well for posting some links pertaining to the Sinclair family history. I'm not too well versed in this area of the past, so I'll save all the links, and hopefully I might learn a little something from reading them.

There are more then a few sites here in New England that some say are associated with Sinclair like the Westford Knight:


Thanks for the links BI.

Its the sort of thing I've heard of but don't know much about so its been good to read more of them.

As mentioned earlier, they didn't change the coat of arms, its just a diferent heraldic way of drawing the coat of arms with a family heraldic background.

The cross is a cross engrailed, different from the templar cross (most obviously) as you notice that this cross touches the edges of the shield while the templar cross doesn't.

Also, the big thing on the top of the helmet is a greyhound

Heraldry

Postby Tank04 on Thu May 24, 2007 11:13 am

bobx,

I recently had to immerse myself into the world of heraldry for a project and discovered some interesting things I never knew before.

Positioning of certain images, Lion Rampants, Helms, sheaves of wheat and certain animals, it all has meaning. Even the type of Helm used causes a great amount of difference depending on the shield or coat of arms. Very interesting world, is this your expertise?

Blou,

A little bit of generalizing isn’t it? Do you have anything to back this up with or is this a bit of paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th) showing through?

I’ve met many Sinclairs, recently too, and they are wonderful, generous people. Satanists, really?

Being Satanists could mean that they adopted Satan as symbol, not neccessarily as someone/thing to worship, which is a common misconception in society today. The Hell's Angels use Satan as a symbol, for example, however they do not worship him/it.

Joan Hope says that the Sinclairs were Norse ..."The Sinclairs were formerly called Moray after their home in Norway, as was the custom among the Norsemen, who otherwise were known only by patronyms. Exiled to France, they took the name of their estate there, St. Clair. It would appear that Henry was a distant cousin to his wife."

Anyone have any information on Moray's? Today it is Murray.
