Historical References

"CLYNE. From the lands of Clyne in the parish of the same name in Sutherlandshire. Various charters dated between 1350 and 1372 were witnessed by William of Clyne (OPS., n, p. 482), who is probably the William de Clyn, "nobilis vir," who appears in record in 1375 as holding the lands of Cathboll in Tarbat of the bishop of Moray (REM., p. 180 0181). Malcolm de Clyne, secretary of the bishop of Orkney in 1390, was also a cleric in Moray (Diplomatarium Norvegicvm, xvn, p. 932), and petitioned for a benefice in 1394 (GSR., i, p. 177). William of Clyne of that Ilk gave seisin of the earldom of Sutherland to John, the son and apparent heir of John, earl of Sutherland in 1456 (OPS., n, p. 724), and in 1512 William of Clyne of that Ilk witnessed a seisin of the same earldom in favor 0 of John, the son and heir of the deceased Earl John (ibid.)- The family appears to have ended in daughters, as in 1518 Adam, earl of Sutherland gave to John Morray of Aberscors for his sons the ward and marriage of Jonet Clyne and of her sister Elizabeth, the daughters and heiresses of William Clyne of Clyne. John Morray disponed the same to one of the Sutherlands who "mareid the heyre of Clyne" (Gordon, Genealogical history of the Earldom of Sutherland, 1813, p. 94). Alexander Clyne in Greenland, Caithness, is recorded in 1662 (Caithness). Norval Clyne (1817-1889), man of letters, was perhaps the only prominent bearer of the name in modern times.
