You have all been great help, in a very short time, with my Sinclair search. Now I want to understand a bit about breaking down where someone lived there. According to where the Sinclair's had their "abode" was at Stempster. So as I understand it.....They lived at Stempster in the parish of Reay in Caithness County, Scotland? Stempster is a farm, right? Would there have been a small community of workers there on the farm? They later moved to Baillie farm, still in Reay, Caithness. So I think the question is these Stempster and Baillie are just large farms with communities......right? So the children were not born in Reay (a town) but on the farm Stempster or Baillie?
