  • ID: I18701
  • Name: Henry William SINCLAIR , 5th Lord of Rosslyn 1
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: Henry de /Roskelyn/, 5th Lord of Rosslyn
  • Birth: BEF 1214 in Rosslyn Castle, Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland
  • Death: ABT 1270 in Rosslyn Castle, Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland
  • Note:
    Burke's Peerage indicates that the parent of William Sinclair is Robert Sinclair, a Norman, and not Henry Sinclair of Rosslyn as much of the Rootsweb information on the internet states. However, according to Burke's Peerage, William did marry Amicia daughter of Henry de Roskelyn, lord of Roslin/Rosslyn and was given charter to Rosslyn by Alexander II of Scotland. This puts the name of the entire ancestry of Henry in doubt, but I assume that the persons are the same and may have been known as Sinclair or "de Roskelyn" or both, and may have descended from St Clair, Normandy, because apparently some sources support that scenario. Thus I am keeping the same ancestry for Henry de Roskelyn, father-in-law of William, that many people have for Henry Sinclair, father of William.

    See notes under son William, which argues for William being son of this Henry "Sinclair". Burke's Peerage states (and I believe) that William did "inherit" Rosslyn from Henry, but not because he was his son, but by his wife Amicia daughter of Henry Sinclair de Roskelyn.
