George Sinclair Sutherland of Brabster married his cousin, Margaret, daughter of George Gibson, and grand-daughter of Alexander Gibson, minister of Canisbay, and his wife, Margaret, daughter of John Sinclair of Rattar. He died in 1840, and had seven sons and five daughters:--
1. Robert, Lieutenant-Colonel in the East India Company's Service, who died in 1863, without surviving issue. He married his cousin, Margaret, daughter of Donal Robeson, Writer in Thurso, who survived him, and died in 1869.
2. James.
3. George, who died without issue in 1869.
4. Alexander, who died without issue in 1862.
5. John, Captain in the East India Company's Service, who died without issue in 1844.
6. David, a merchant in America, who has issue.
7. William, M.D. in Australia, who has issue.
1. Janet, who died unmarried in 1865.
2. Anne, who died unmarried in 1824.
3. Margaret, who died unmarried in 1868.
4. Camilla, who died unmarried in 1849.
5. Elizabeth, who married the Rev. Mr. M'Gregor, and has issue, three sons.

Had George Sinclair Sutherland, fifth of Brabster, been an heir-male of this family, he, as the descendant of an elder son of Alexander Sinclair of Latheron, would have succeeded in 1842, in preference to John Sinclair of Barrock, to the baronetcy of Dunbeath.
