The surname Hinton can come  from any of the many places of the same name, which mean either “high settlement” or “monastery settlement”, depending on their etymology.   The surname is relatively uncommon in the northern counties of England, and was introduced into Cheshire by a younger branch of the Hinton family of Hinton near Whitchurch in Shropshire: a William Hinton from this family purchased Rushton Hall and the manors of Tarporley, Eaton and Rushton from Sir Giles Capell in 1547-8.  Some of the land was sold and the remainder was inherited by William’s nephew Griffith (or Gruffudd), but subsequently passed out of the family.

 

Early pedigrees for this family in Cheshire are sketchy (and at times contradictory!), but it seems probable that most or all of the Hintons living in the Tarporley area in the 16th and early 17th century were descendants of William’s brother(s).

 

The first record of our  own Hinton line is the marriage of Robert Hinton to Joan Hough in Tarporley on 4 October 1630.  They had four children, all born in Tarporley:

Robert died before Joan, who was recorded as a widow when she was buried at St Helen’s Church, Tarporley on 31 August 1653.

 

 

William Hinton, son of Robert Hinton and Joan Hough, was baptised in St Helen’s Church, Tarporley on 18 December 1636, and later moved the comparatively short distance to Netherton, just outside Frodsham, where he was living when he married Maria Bushell on 3 August 1665 in St Oswald’s Church, Chester.  The couple had five children, all baptised in Frodsham:

John Hinton, oldest son of William Hinton and Maria Bushell, was born in Acton Grange and baptised in St Laurence's Church, Frodsham on 6 December 1665.  He married Sarah Dunbabin in the same church on 9 February 1696.  Sarah was the daughter of John Dunbabin and his wife Alice Dunbabin: she was born in Acton Grange like her husband, and was baptised in All Saints Church, Daresbury on 25 April 1667.  The couple spent all their married life near Daresbury, where their five children were baptised:

John died in Acton Grange at the age of 44, and was buried at All Saints, Daresbury on 13 October 1710.  Sarah did not remarry, and was buried In Daresbury on 28 July 1729.

 

Mary Hinton (1703) had an illegitimate daughter Betty in 1739, and possibly married William Mason in 1747.




John Hinton, son of John Hinton and Sarah Dunbabin, was born in Higher Walton on 4 November 1701 and baptised in All Saints' Church, Daresbury just over a fortnight later, on 16 November 1701.  He was described as being “of Warrington” when he married Elizabeth Williamson in St Mary’s Church, Lymm on 13 April 1732, so may have been living there at the time.   Elizabeth was baptised in Lymm on 23 September 1706, and was the daughter of John Williamson and his wife Ann Wright. 

 

John and Elizabeth made their home in Lymm, where at least one branch of the family would remain for the next two hundred years.  They had five children:

m. Mary Vernon, 1767

John was buried in Lymm on 11 March 1742 and Elizabeth on 1 September 1767.


John Hinton, son of John Hinton and Elizabeth Williamson, was born in Lymm on 7 August 1739, and baptised in St Mary's Church on 2 September 1739.  He probably married Mary Davis in Weaverham on 26 January 1762 and had a daughter Ann who died at the age of 2 in 1764.  Mary herself was buried in Weaverham on 7 October 1766, and John then married Mary Vernon in Weaverham on 29 November 1767.

 

John and Mary had either seven or eight children, all born in Lymm:

Although there is no record of Mary's death in Lymm between 1786 and 1791, and no record of another marriage for John, the baptismal record of John's youngest child gives his mother's name as Ann, which is almost certainly an error.  (There was no other man named John Hinton living in Lymm at this time.) 

 

John died in Statham, on the outskirts of Lymm, at the age of 79, and was buried on 2 August 1817.  Mary died in Statham in 1827 aged 81.

 


Thomas Hinton, youngest son of John Hinton, was born in Lymm on 7 August 1791, and married Miriam Massey at St Mary and All Saints Church, Great Budworth on 28 September 1812.  Miriam was baptised in Daresbury on 8 December 1793, and was the daughter of John Massey and his wife Sarah Nicholls.  Thomas worked originally as a labourer, but was described as a carrier when his older children were born.  He and Miriam had eleven children, all born in Statham and baptised in Lymm except Ellen, who was baptised in Daresbury:

Ellen Hinton, daughter of Thomas Hinton and Miriam Massey, was born in Statham, but baptised in her mother's home viillage of Daresbury on 27 January 1815.  She had an illegitimate son whose father was recorded as Peter Denton:

Ellen then married James Birchenall in Lymm on 14 November 1836, and lived in Manchester for some years after the marriage.  James was born in Stockport in about 1787, and must have served in the army at some point, as he is recorded as a Chelsea pensioner (and beer seller!) in 1851.  By 1881, Ellen was widowed and living in Ashton upon Mersey with her unmarried "daughter", Sarah Jane Shaw (who was actually her son's niece by marriage).  Ellen died in Lymm and was buried at St Mary's Church on 22 April 1894.

John Hinton, son of Thomas Hinton and Miriam Massey, was born in Statham and christened in Lymm on 14 September 1828.  He married Mary Brookes in Lymm on 13 August 1855, but the marriage was childless, and she died in 1864.  John then married Sarah Sorton in Manchester Cathedral on 13 July 1867.  Sarah was born in Hulme, Manchester on 23 April 1843, and was the daughter of Richard Sorton and his wife Esther Barlow.

For much of his working life, John was a fustian cutter, like several other members on the Hinton and allied families in and around Lymm: at the time fustian cutting was a thriving local cottage industry.  (Fustian is silk or cotton woven in a way which produces a surface consisting of loops: these were then cut by hand by pieceworkers at home or in small workshops.)  Shortly after his marriage, John is recorded as a horse keeper at Canal Bank, Lymm, but he later returned to fustian cutting.

 

Fred Hinton is believed to have emigrated to South Africa, and probably left England between 1901-1911.

 

John died in Lymm on 21 May 1913, and Sarah on 24 October 1931.

 

 

Samuel Hinton, son of Thomas Hinton and Miriam Massey, was born in Statham, and christened in Lymm on 16 January 1831.  He was an agricultural labourer, and married Mary Clare in St Martin's Church, Ashton on Mersey on 26 July 1853.  They had one daughter:

 

1.

Miriam Hinton

(1854-1855)


 

Mary died shortly after Miriam's birth at the age of 23, and was buried in Lymm on 2 October 1854.  Sadly, Miriam did not survive for long afterwards, and was buried in Lymm on 1 April 1855.

 

Samuel then married Martha Starkey in Manchester Cathedral on 20 September 1858.  Martha had an illegitimate daughter, Isabella, born a year earlier, who strangely was christened twice: firstly in 1857 under the name Starkey, and then a second time in 1861 (at the same time as her brothers Thomas and William), when she was given the surname Hinton.  It seems likely, therefore, that Samuel was her true father.  Including Isabella, Samuel had nine children with his second wife:

Harriet Hinton, daughter of William Hinton and Hannah, was born in Sale in 1848, and worked as a domestic servant before marrying William Holland in Manchester Cathedral on 25 January 1866.  William was born in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in 1841 and was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Holland.  Harriet and William had two daughters:

Harriet died when her second daughter was just a few days old, and was buried in Chorlton-cum-Hardy on 23 July 1869., followed by baby Hannah less than two months later.  William's sister Elizabeth came to live with him and act as housekeeper, but William also died young, and was buried in Chorlton-cum-Hardy on 16 December 1875 at the age of 36.  (I presume Elizabeth went to live with relations at this point, as she was only nine years old.)



William Hinton, son of William Hinton and Hannah, was born in Sale, Cheshire on 12 April 1850, and married his cousin Mary Ditchfield (daughter of John Ditchfield and Mary Hinton) in Lymm on 21 April 1872.  They had four children:

Margaret Aspery (or Astbury), oldest daughter of Thomas Astbury and Anne Hinton, was christened at Lymm on 27 January 1846.  She married William Cooper, a labourer, in St Elphin's Church, Warrington on 21 May 1866, and the couple settled in nearby Stretton.

 

Their oldest daughter was born in Lymm shortly before their marriage, and registered under Margaret's maiden name of Aspery, but she subsequently used the surname Cooper.  The couple had a further six daughters, all born in Stretton near Warrington:
