Name: Gefferie\Geoffrey HINTON , of Wirsall 1
Birth: ABT 1517 in Wirsall, Nantwich, Cheshire, England
The Visitation of Cheshire of 1580 stated that Gefferie Hinton was "of Hinton", which I have not been able to identify. However the hamlet of Wirsall was held by the Hintons in 1656 (and probably earlier), and it is less than a mile from the church of Marbury, held by the Hulse family.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wirswall is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England, located at SJ544441 near the Shropshire border, around 1½ miles north of Whitchurch. The historical township had an area of 973 acres (3.94 km2). The civil parish also includes the settlements of Bradeley Green, Wicksted and part of Willey Moor.
According to the 2001 Census, the parish had a population of 76.
The village appears in the Domesday Book as Wiresuelle, an outlying estate of Marbury. Like much of the land in the Nantwich hundred it was then held by William Malbank, having been earlier held by Earl Harold. The Domesday Book describes it as being 'waste', suggesting that any settlement might have been destroyed during the suppression of the rebellion of 1069-70. In 1288, it formed part of the barony of Wich Malbank. In 1656, Wirswall (then spelled Wyrsal) was held by the Hinton family.
