    1. Born in England. Immigrated into Maryland 1651 as a free adult with his wife and children from the Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He was in Virginia by 1646. On June 23, 1651, he demanded 800 acres of land for transporting his wife and children (John, Grace and Anne) plus three servants into the Province of Maryland. He was issued 600 acres on the Eastern Shore opposite Love Point (Lib. A.B.H., fol. 164). in 1662, he received additional grants of land totalling 5100 acres for transporting seven more servants.

    In two depositions made in 1655, he gives his age as 35 years (Old Kent, pp.108, 211)

    He was Clerk of Kent County 1652-53 and a Justice of the County in 1652, 1654 and 1656. As a justice, he held the court in his house.

    He was High Commissioner of Isle of Kent , MD, in 1652 and Sheriff of Isle of Kent in 1655-1656. He was a member of the Assembly in 1659 in Maryland.

    He was a representative from Kent County to the House of Burgesses in 1659-1660.

    In 1652, he changed the spelling of his name from "Hinson" to "Hynson".

    2. From Luise Snell posted on Genealogy.com:

    "He was Justice of Kent Co. Court in 1654 and a "member of the House of Burgesses in 1659 - after which he was debarred from office by Lord Baltimore for serving under the Commonwealth - particularly as a member of the Assembly of 1659."

    126 His religious affiliation was Protestant. He supported Fendall's Rebellion in 1659/60-1660, for which he was fined 2,000 lbs. of tobacco and barred from office for 7 years in 1661. For more info. abt. Fendall's Rebellion, go to http://www.mdarchives.state.md.us/msa/mdmanual/05sen/html/senf.html .The land he owned at his first election equaled rights to 800 acres. He patented an additional 4,000 acres. At his death he owned 1 slave and 4 servants. The land he owned at his death was greater than 4,000 acres."

    3. The lands on which he lived in Kent County became part of Talbot County when that county was formed in 1661. Therefore, although he did not move, he died in Talbot County.

    4. "Hinchingham" 2200 acres, aurveyed 19 Jul 1659 for Thomas Hynson

    5. He died in 1667, intestate. 20 Jan 1667, administration of his estate was given to his sons Thomas an John (Testamentary Proc., Liber 2, folio 289).
