Thread: Lord Provost of Thurso - John Sinclair

  1. #1

    Default Lord Provost of Thurso - John Sinclair

    Hello everybody. I am trying to find any descendants of John Sinclair who was Provost of Thurso from the fifties until 1979. He was the cousin of my grandmother, Marion Cairns Aitken, whose mother (Margaret Sinclair) was born in Thurso but married and stayed in Cumbernauld. I assume that John was her nephew.

    Hi there,

    Iím John Sinclairís great nephew (also called John Sinclair!) - he was my great grandfather Danielís brother. Unfortunately Uncle John never married or had children so the closest he has to living relatives are through Danielís descendants. Iíve got quite a lot of information about Uncle John and the things he did during his life, as well as his family.
    If you need to know anything more then please email me at

    John Sinclair was Provost of Thurso but never "Lord Provost".
