William Sinclair, the First Grand Master of Masons in Scotland --- this is a
link to the Grand Lodge of Scotland
Earl William St Clair was certainly one of the great illuminati of his day as
can be seen from the care and attention which he built into every aspect of his
architectural masterpiece: Rosslyn Chapel. There are carvings representing everything from fallen angels to a menagerie of
animals, from one hundred green men to a cornucopia of physic plants, from the
grotesque figures of the master mason to the weeping face of the apprentices
mother, from the danse macabre to the head of Robert the Bruce.
William was writing a story in stone and, yet, there is only one quotation
inscribed in the whole building. It is on one of the lintels in the South
aisle. It reads: ......

Origin of the Sinclair name
and a story that you won't want to miss. Read this first and you'll
appreciate the following link ...
Our name has been repeated on July 16 for more than a thousand years in
Saint Clair-sur Epte! "As the dying embers slowly faded all that was
left was the memory, hidden in the caverns of the mind, of the friendship
extended in the small town and the love the French peasants hold for the
progenitor of our name. We are here for only the flicking of a eye, each man is
allotted only so many heartbeats. Our name lives, well beyond the days of our
lives in the l'Île de France, as thousands of men and women, for over a thousand
years, have called our name in soft evening air." Sinclair of France

- The Sinclair Motto - "Commit Thy Work to God"
according to our hereditary Clan Chief, Malcolm Caithness Sinclair, "It is
probable that our motto was taken from the Bible and is a quotation from
16.3...". From the King James version: "Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy
thoughts shall be established."

place where she felt at peace. For previous occupants, the Castle of Mey
appears to have been anything but tranquil. Cryptic chambers, secret societies,
cabbalistic orders and hidden passages leading to the shore, are pointing to
lifestyles rather at odds with its 20th Century image."
Dirlot Castle - "The Sinclairs of Caithness, the Gunns, Cheyne’s, and
the Sutherlands, all stemming from Rex Deus bloodlines, had knowledge of sacred
geometry and geomancy. The Sinclairs of Caithness built over twenty houses and
