Sketch of the Civil and Traditional History of Caithness, from the Tenth Century (Classic Reprint) Details

Excerpt from Sketch of the Civil and Traditional History of Caithness, From the Tenth Century

For much interesting information connected with the rentals, roads, and pedigrees of some of the principal families in the county, I am indebted to Sir John Sinclair of Dunbeath; James Sinclair, Esquire of Forss; John Henderson, Esq., Banker, Thurso, Mr James Mackay, messenger-at-arms, Thurso; and Mr George Petrie, Clerk of Supply for the county of Orkney. Mr Sinclair of Forss furnished me with the valuable paper on the Caithness roads, and Mr Mackay with the curious docu ment entitled the Liberties of Thurso. I would have gladly given, had they been sent me, some more pedigrees of Caith ness families, as genealogical details of this kind are to many persons exceedingly interesting. The two woodcuts repte senting Ackergill Tower, and Castles Sinclair and Girnigoe, are from photographs taken on the spot by an ingenious friend, Mr John F. Sutherland, a native of Thurso, who follows the profession of teacher in Edinburgh.
