Sources of information


All statements of fact on this website have arisen from research by Peter Sinclair that is based on primary sources or authoritative secondary sources. The decision not to include references to these sources on the website is to keep the pages easy to read, and because the much more detailed research from which the information is extracted is fully referenced.


Starting in 2011, this research will be made available in the form of pdfs covering coherent periods or subjects. Ultimately, the pdf texts will form chapters in a book that will be printed in a pre-subscribed limited edition.

The first pdfs will cover some aspects of the Anglo-Norman St. Clairs in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, as well as William Sinclair of Roslin in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. They will be published electronically.

In the meantime, please feel free to use the information on this website in the form allowed by Creative Commons.
