Book review

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ... in a paper in the 'Memoirs de la Societe des Antiquaires du Nord,' 1850-60. IV. Testament of Sir David Sinclair of Sumburgh, 1506. Equally interesting indications of the more opulent life in the islands in early times are found in the testament of Sir David Sinclair of Sumburgh, signed at Tingwall 9th July 1506. Sir David was third son of Earl William St Clair, from whose other sons and daughters he obtained the Sumburgh and other properties in Shetland, by deed dated at Edinburgh, 3rd December 1498. He was high in esteem with the King of Denmark and Norway, and while occupying the position of Great Fowde of Shetland, held at the same time the appointment of Captain General of the fortress at Bergen in Norway. In the Will, a copy of which is preserved among the papers of the Sheriff Court of Orkney, and has been printed in the 'Miscellany' of the Bannatyne Club, we find that all Sir David's inherited property in Shetland, together with valuable personal property, was bequeathed to Lord Sinclair, while Lady Sinclair and other noble friends were suitably remembered, and the following Shetlanders--viz., Thorrald of Brucht, Richard Lesk, William Spens--and others received various small lands and other presents. To St George's altar, in the Danish cathedral of Roeskilde, he left the gold chain which he got from the King of Denmark; a cup was destined for St Magnus Church at Tingwall, but seems never to have reached that place, and his black velvet cloak was left in the proportions of two-thirds to the church at Tingwall, and the remaining one-third to the Cross Kirk of Dunrossness, a venerable fabric which existed for 300 years later, only to be swept away at the end of the eighteenth century by a barbarity ever to be reprobated and deplored....
