Re: Hincks UK
I can see that you posted this message a few years ago, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. I don't know the answer to your question, but I was wondering if you knew anything about the history of the Hincks family name (anything- where it originated, if there are still living Hincks in Europe, etc). Unfortunately I can only trace my family's lineage back to New Orleans, Louisiana, US in the late 1700s/early 1800s. (My great, great, great, great grandfather, Joseph Hincks was married here in 1808)Anything before that is just speculation, but supposedly his father was Joseph Hincks and his mother was Mary Hood of Litchfield, England. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I have had great difficulty in finding out anything past what happened here in the States.
