I don't have any Distin ancestry, but three distant cousins married into the Distin families of Paignton.As a result, I've built up a picture of the descendants from these three marriages.I would be happy to share if any one is interested.
Thomas Distin (bp. 3 Jun 1742 Paignton, son of Thomas and Christin Distin) married Susanna Bartlett on 14 May 1764 at Marldon, Devon.Thomas and Susanna had 4 children.
Henry Distin (bp. 24 May 1808 Paignton, son of Thomas Distin and Joan nee Butland) married Anne Bartlett on 31 Aug 1826 at Stoke Dameral and again on 10 November 1829 at Paignton.Henry and Anne had 7 children.
John Distin (bp. 15 Feb 1798 Paignton, brother of Henry) married Eliza Bartlett (sister of Anne) on 9 Jun 1827 at Paignton.John and Eliza had 7 children too.
