Since these posts were from some time ago, there has been much research on this family from Wiltshire, England.
I, too, am interested in learning of any male Hinton descendants who have had their DNA tested.There are some online webpages with a few results - more are needed and those with the 60 plus markers would be especially helpful.
Contact me for these sites - I would love to correspond with those 'cousins' who are interested in sharing DNA results.
Sir John Hinton, M.D. was the fifth son of Sir Thomas Hinton and Catherine (probably Katherin) Palmer.
5. Sir John HINTON M.D. was born 10 Jul 1603 in Chilton Foliat, Wiltshire, England (no parish record found for his christening) and died 10 Oct 1682 in St Martin-In-The-Fields, London, Middlesex, England. He was the son of Sir Thomas HINTON and Catherine PALMER.The wife of Sir Doctor John Hinton was Elizabeth DUKE (DILKE) who was born ABT 1603 in Benhall, Suffolk, England, and died 1656 in Fullwood Rents in London, England. Elizabeth was the daughter of 18. Ambrose DUKE and 19. Elizabeth CALTHORPE. For a description of Fullwood/Fulwood Rents, see below.)
Sir Dr. John Hinton was born 10 July 1603, at Chilton Foliat, Wiltshire, and baptized 17 July 1603, at Chilton Foliat Parish in Wiltshire (not St. Martins Parish as many researchers have repeated - there never was any such parish church in Chilton Foliat - dates according to Chilton Foliat parish records in my files).He did not inherit his father’s vast holdings.This would be expected as he was not the ‘eldest son‘ who would have inherited his father‘s estate, however, his father certainly did help him to become educated and established in life.
He entered Eton College in 1618 and matriculated Queens College, Oxford, November 9, 1621.At age 18 he graduated B.A. 1625 and M.S. 1628.He studied medicine at Westminster Chemical School from 1625-1629.
He entered Leyden University in Holland on 10 April 1633 (Leyden Students, Index Soc., p. 49) where he presented himself before the censor’s board at the Royal College of Physicians on 6 February 1634, however, as he had not yet been ‘engaged in practice for the suitable period of four years,’ he was not examined.
On 7 November 1640 he again appeared at the college and appeared before the Board of Censors of the Royal College of Physicians for examination for the special license given by that body.He presented letters from his father's old friend Henry Pierrepoint, Marquess of Dorchester, one of the principal Secretaries of State.He showed papers where he had also been appointed Physician in Ordinary to the Queen, Henrietta Maria, wife of King Charles I.
I have pages and pages more on Sir John Hinton M.D. and his ancestors if anyone is interested.
