James is of the St Clair bloodline of Scotland.
The Scoto-Norman surname Sinclair comes from the Clan Sinclair whose progenitors were from Saint Clare, Normandy, and conquered England with William the Conqueror in 1066 then moved to Scotland and were given the land of Roslin, Midlothian by the King of Scots.
The style Sinclair is the most common styling. It has its origins in Scotland and is a derivation of the original French “de Saint-Clair”; although the name has also been styled “Santoclair”, “de St. Clair”, “Sainclair”, “Synklar” and many more across the centuries.
Those of the direct noble bloodline maintain the St Clair spelling.
