There is a will for a William Sinclair of Kirk Marown Parish , drawn up 22nd March 1827. He has no connection that I can determine with Henry Sinclair, but it contains a wealth of genealogical detail which may be of interest to other readers. You can view the original on line on LDS microfilm 0106427 starting image 76.
