Sir James Gunn was a Scottish knight and a member of the Templar Order, who was said to have partook in Henry Sinclair's expedition to the New World in 1398. The expedition is believed to have reached Nova Scotia and Massachusetts.

In the mid-18th century, the Colonial Templar Shay Cormac began a quest to find Gunn's armor and sword in North America, eventually recovering them from Fort de Sable.

Trivia

  • Historians have long doubted Gunn and Sinclair's expedition to be fact, since little evidence was found. [citation needed] Further, the likelihood of Gunn being a Templar was practically impossible, as the Knights Templar had been disbanded for nearly a hundred years in Europe by the time of his voyage.
  • Though Gunn was a Templar, his armor bears the colors of the Knights Hospitalier.
