Hinton Family Line of Ancestry

The Hinton family line is part of our ancestry line that participated in key historical events of our nation’s history. We had a grandfather that played a part in developing Jamestown, Virginia. We had a grandfather that fought in the American Revolution. Then a grandfather that fought in the War of 1812. The War of 1812 opened the settling into what would become Indiana. Terri and I visited gravesites of these early ancestor gravesites that moved into Clinton County.


My 10th Great Grandparents - Thomas Hinton Born 1574 - 1635 came to the Colonies but returned to England and invested large sums of money in the Virginia Company, which came to be called the Jamestown Colony. He was Knighted by King James I in 1619. He has several children; we are descendants of his son Thomas Hinton born 1600 – 1683

9h Great Grandfather - Thomas Hinton (B)-1600 (D)20-9-1683, son of Sir Thomas Hinton and Catherine Palmer. Thomas returned to the Virginia Colony to join his sons sometime between 1653 and 1666. (Date not known.) In 1666 he moved to Maryland from Virginia. He died leaving a will in Cecil County, Maryland. Volume 1, Page 135. It is believed he had another son after he returned to the New World because he was still living with his father when they moved to Maryland.
