Hi Ken.


I have found from the Ancestry records not sure if they are your family. There seems to be quite a few Archibald Sinclair & Margaret McKinzie /McKenzie families.


First family

Archibald  Sinclair & Margaret McKinzie /McKenzie Married 25 July 1791 Comrie, Perth, Scotland. FHL Film no 1040075


Bettridge Baptism 2 June 1793 Comrie, Perth.  Film no 1040075

Donald Baptism 10 June 1795, Comrie, Perth, Film no 1040075  This would fit with your Baptism record



Second Family

Archibald  Sinclair & Margaret McKinzie /McKenzie Married 1801 Muthill Perth. Film no 1040132


Archibald Baptism 4 April 1802 Muthill, Perth, Film no 1040132

John was born 9 August 1806 Bap 19 Aug 1806 Muthill Film no 1040132



Third Family

Archibald Sinclair & Margaret Sinclair Married 1 Aug 1774 Comrie, Perth.  Film no 1040075

Helen born 20 Aug 1774 Baptism 30 Oct 1774 Comrie, Perth Film no 1040075



This is an odd one out. I  thought he might belong to the first family but he has a different Film no.

Archibald  Sinclair & Margaret McKinzie /McKenzie

Malcolm Sinclair Baptism 24 March 1799 @ Monzievaird & Strowan Perth. Film no 1040335


I hope this is of some help

Thank you to all who have offered help so far.  I see now why I was puzzled.

I have viewed a film showing the Muthill parish registers (Spine of book clearly says “Muthill – B1704-1819; M1676-1761”) and page 242 appears to be headed Comrie in 1795.

Perhaps I have misread this word, but nothing else comes to mind.

I will try to attach part of the page, showing the heading and also 2 entries on the page which refer to Gualnacarrie.

Can any of you interpret this page differently?

Can you send more information on Archibald Sinclair date of birth, parents, wife we might be able to find the family. If you look for the family you might be able to find the place.

Is he connected to Sir John Sinclair the politician?

I’m looking at a page in a book which is named parochial registers of MUTHILL, Perth but the writing at the top of the register page says “COMRIE January 1795”.

Was COMRIE part of MUTHILL?  What other locales were also in MUTHILL?

The entry I am interested in is for an Archibald SINCLAIR “in GUALNACARRIE”.

Does anyone know what/where was Gualnacarrie?  And how it relates to CLATHICK, MONZIEVAIRD or TRINITY GASK?  [The family seems to have moved a lot]
