In his 1895 book, "The Life of General Thomas Pinckney," Rev. Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, then president of the South Carolina Historical Society, notes Sir Robert Pinkeney's claim to the throne of Scotland in 1292, after the death of Margaret "The Maid of Norway" left Scotland without a monarch. Trying to confirm this claim, I found that most documents describing what was known as The First Interregnum, or The Great Cause, refer to only Robert Bruce and John Baliol by name, and the other claimants as an anonymous group.
During a trip to Scotland two years ago I was able to discover that a Robert de Pinkeny did exist during that period, so I hired a university researcher to help me determine the truth.
As a result, I now have a complete package of information confirming de Pinkeny as one of the claimants. The package includes: (1) a copy of the appropriate pages from the book; (2) a summary of the events of The Great Cause; (3) the pedigrees of all of the claimants to the throne; and (4) copies of Robert de Pinkeny's claim in both the original Latin and in English translation.
I want to share this information with anyone who might be interested but, because I need to recover some of my costs, I have to ask $10 for each set of copies. For more information, or to order your set, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
