Foster's references to Hingston

In 1872 Joseph Foster published a "Revised Genealogical account of the various families descended from Francis Fox of St Germans, Cornwall". A copy of this book is in the Society of Genealogists Library. This seems to be an updated version of another book "The descendants of Francis Fox of St. Germans", also published in 1872, a copy of which is in the West Country Studies Library at Exeter. These books appear to be identical in so far as they refer to the Hingstons, although a detailed check of the differences has not been made. The pedigree gives extensive details of the Quaker families in the South West and shows the considerable degree of inter-marriage between the various families. It is particularly relevant to Tree HD. A small extract from the whole work, made by Andrew Hingston from the Exeter copy, is of particular interest here - it does not reproduce the whole of the pedigree. I have a photocopy of the Society of Genealogists copy and it appears to be identical.

The original relies heavily on indenting and different type faces to distinguish different generations. An attempt has been made to reproduce that here but HTML browsers do their own formatting, so the full details may not be visible to everyone.
