He was christened in Middle Claydon on the 28 Dec 1755. He married to Betty
STANLEY on 20 Jun 1779 in Quainton, Bucks. He was buried in Quainton on the 17
Aug 1814. In the burial register his age was given as 57, i.e. born ca. 1757.
From his age in the Qainton Parish Register he is a near
age match to the Thomas Hinton, christened 28 Dec 1755 in Middle Claydon
the son of John & Mary. Given the late date of christening in the year
1755, this makes his age only one year difference between this
christening and the burial age. Circumstantial evidence linking Thomas
to Middle Claydon is the use of the name Ruth in the family. The name
Ruth Hinton is rare in Buckinghamshire, there being only three instances
in the parish registers, a Ruth Hinton christened in 1730 in Middle
Claydon and a sister to John christened in 1727, then John's daughter
Ruth in 1758 a sister to Thomas of 1755, and finally Thomas's daughter
Ruth in 1793 in Quainton. Thomas's sister Ruth was also living in
Quainton when she married in 1796, possibly she was living with her
brother Thomas as both their parent's had died by then. It would appear
Thomas continued the name of Ruth from the two previous generations when
naming his first daughter. Thus the link back to the Middle Claydon
Betty STANLEY was christened on 11 October 1757 in Hoggeston, Buckinghamshire.
She was buried on 10 Oct 1819 in Quainton.
HINTON was christened on 15 Jun 1783 in Quainton, Bucks.
