Hingston Tree HD
Descendants of Andrew Hingston
This is a complex tree. At its core lies the work of Allen
and Dymond (A&D), which we believe to have been largely compiled
from family records. The ground has been largely worked-over by others
and the results seem to have made their way into the International Genealogy
Index (IGI) or into the LDS ancestral file (IGI-AF). It is not clear where
that information comes from, and some of it is contradictory, which leaves
open the question of how reliable it is. Where no source is given below
this usually means that I, or someone I am in contact with, has seen the
original records or the material is from the A&D directly. Some information
has come from work done in the 1940s by Treeby Watson Hingston (TWH).
The ordering of the children of any family is the order of their birth,
as far as I know it, irrespective of sex. However, Victorian, and some
modern, pedigrees list all the boys before all the girls; where I have
no information about ages I follow the order of my source. The same ordering
is maintained in the families of each generation. The husbands of Hingston
women are listed where their wives appear as children, as are their
children. Because this is a one-name study, the families of sons are given
separate entries in the next generation since they can propagate the name
to future generations. The same would apply to illegitimate children of
Hingston women. The numbering is purely arbitrary - new numbers have been
added as necessary and the old numbers left so that people who have downloaded
the tree at different times can all refer to the same person. I may, one
day, renumber more logically, but that will only happen once we are sure
the tree is complete.
A considerable amount of research
has been carried out by Andrew Hingston, primarily on the descendants
of 12. James Hingston down to the children of 42.
Henry Hingston. Detailed links to that information are given in the
Sir Theodore Fortescue Fox 1899-1989 kept many records and passed many
to Cathy Stevenson who has passed them to me. Unfortunately he does not
give sources but where appropriate I have added things below with a reference
The Tasmanian branch has been researched extensively by Karen Hughes
and Cathy Stevenson, to whom I am indebted for resolving some ambiguities
in the trees. I believe they now agree with the findings in the 1940s
of TWH. I have also received some information about the Tasmanian
Hingstons from Robin Walker (RW) (email@example.com)
Some information about the pupils who attended the Quaker School at
Sidcot has been supplied by Howard Knight (HMK).
If anyone can access the original records and can remove any of the
ambiguities could they please email
me with the information, and I will update the tree accordingly.
I am very grateful to everyone who has contributed to this tree.
Possible earlier members of this line
100. Unknown HINGSTON, would probably
have been born about 1400. His existence is inferred from the fact
that his two sons are mentioned in IPMs in 1488
and 1511. He is presumed to have lived
at Hingston in Bigbury, then seemingly known as Hyndestone.
The presumed children were
101. ROBERT HINGSTON was the subject of
the IPM made in 1488 on his death.
He clearly lived at Hingston but held extensive property over the South
Hams. He died 28 Jan 1487/8. His wife is shown by Prideaux
as MARGARET Cottwall (probably COTTERALL), who later married WILLIAM ASHFORD.
Margaret died 26 Oct 1508 and William Ashford died 17 Jul 1508. William
is shown as having a son Nicholas Ashford born 1485, so presumably he was
also married earlier.
101. ROBERT HINGSTON
JOHN HINGSTON; may have had a daughter ELIZABETH HINGSTON who married JOHN
BURY of Colaton, but accirding to Philip's IPM they left no heirs, so all
the property was left to Robert's son Philip.
Robert and Margaret seem to have had six children:-
There is some confusion about the various women mentioned here.
102. PHILIP HINGSTON, who died 17 Oct
1508. The 1511 IPM makes no mention
of a wife or children and his brother John was dead so all the property
went to the four sisters.
JOHN HINGSTON d.s.p.
ELIZABETH HINGSTON, born before 1482. If this is the Elizabeth
MARGARET HINGSTON, born before 1482,
JOAN HINGSTON, born before 1482.
AGNES HINGSTON, born before 1482.
Records at Wonwell say that in the time of
Henry VI (1422-1461), ROBERT de HENDESTON succeeded, and after him his
son PHILIP, who left three daughters; MARGARET, the wife of John Fortescue;
ELIZABETH, the wife of PHILIP COURTENAY of Molland (N. Devon); and
PHILLIPA, the wife of Robert Ashford, or Ayshford. The property continued
in the family of the last named until about 1790. [This
is in conflict with the IPM, a primary source, which implies that Philip
had no offspring, so it may be that the "daughters" mentioned were in fact
A Courtenay family
web site says Sir PHILLIP COURTENAY of Molland, born: c.1432,
Powderham and died 7 Dec 1489. Inherited Molland Bottreaux. Wonwell
in Kingston, Devon from wife. Duke of Clarence's Council 1470-8. Sheriff
1470. Member of Parliament 1470-1,2-5, 1484. Battle of Barnet 1471. JP
1471-8, 1483-5. Fell with Clarence 1471, restored by Richard III; Kt of
the Body 1484. Married 1: ELIZABETH HYNESTON c.1452, Wonwell, Kingston.
[The Wonwell records seem to show that Wonwell
went to the Ashford family, not the Courtenays. But is plausible
that Elizabeth could have been born as early as 1430, which would allow
her to have married in 1452.] The Wonwell records say
that in the late 15th century Robert Ashford (Ayshford) married PHILIIPPA,
daughter and heir of ROBERT HINGSTON. (Milles, "Parochial Collections")
A PHILLIPPA ELIZABETH HINGSTON, daughter of PHILIP HINGSTON, married
in 1496 to JOHN COFFIN of Portledge, Alwington. He died on 15
Dec 1566 at Devonshire, England.. They had a son Sir Richard Coffin
who was Sheriff
of Devon in 1507 and a younger brother, Sir
William Coffin who joined Henry VIII's household about 1515, and took
part, as a gentleman of the privy chamber, in the tournament between Henry
VIII and the French King held at Guisnes in 1519. In 1529 he became a Member
of Parliament for Derbyshire. He died: 8 Dec 1538, Standon, Herts.
[This Hingston/Coffin marriage is often quoted
but with many different dates. The ones quoted here seem to be the
most consistent. Most of the sources assume she came from the area
around Alwington, but we know of no Hingstons in that area.]
In Burke's "A genealogical and heraldic History of the Commoners of
Great Britain and Ireland, Volume 2 (1885). JOHN FORTESCUE
was the son of Sir Henry Fortescue, chief justice of the court of common
pleas in Ireland, 1426 and his first wife Joan. John married MARGARET,
daughter and heir of WILLIAM HINGSTON, of Wonnel, and left an only daughter
and heiress, Elizabeth Fortescue, of Fallapit, who married a cousin Lewis
Fortescue, one of the barons of the exchequer.
It would appear that the only descent is through daughters, so future
Hingstons are unlikely to be descended directly from this family.
We must therefore look for cousins if the link to the 1.
Andrew below is to be established.
Generation No. 1
1. ANDREW HINGSTON. Andrew would have been
born sometime around 1540, give or take 10 years. TFF shows him as being
the son of RICHARD HINGSTON, who was born about 1500; Andrew is described
as being of Holbeton or Wonwell but it seems
likely that Wonwell (and Hingston) were no longer held by Hingstons at
The descent shown in black is as shown in Allen and Dymond, and as has
been shown in the tree since the site began. The
descent shown in green, between 1. Andrew and 12. James, is an alternative
shown in WEH's letter of 1905. It is not yet
known on what evidence it is based. If anyone can provide backup
information, please contact me.
Child of Andrew Hingston is:
Generation No. 2
2. WALTER HINGSTON is believed to have been
the son of 1. Andrew Hingston and died Abt 1627. TFF
shows him as being born 1566, with a wife called SABILLA who died in 1642;
he is described as being of Holbeton.
Shown tentatively in Allen & Dymond
Child of Walter Hingston is:
85. JOHN HINGSTON.
The son of 1. Andrew Hingston. Died Holbeton 8
Child of John Hingston is:
Generation No. 3
3. ANDREW HINGSTON was born in Scotscombe
(probably Scobbiscombe), Holbeton, (TFF says in 1596), the son of 2.
Walter Hingston, and died 1643. He married GRACE 1623. TFF says she
was from Ringmore, born 1602, died 1675).
Children of Andrew Hingston and Grace Hingston? are:
86. GEORGE HINGSTON,
of Holbeton, the son of 85. John Hingston.
Child of George Hingston is:
Generation No. 4
4. WALTER HINGSTON was born 14 Nov
1624 at Holbeton (IGI), the son of 3. Andrew Hingston and
Grace and died 1684. He married SARAH REEVE 1652 (IGI says at Plymouth).
She was born 2 Sep 1624 and died 8 Jul 1704 at Plymouth (both from IGI-AF).
TFF agrees with her birth-date and says she was from Exeter.
Children of William Hingston and Sarah Reeve are:
5. JAMES HINGSTON was born 11 Jun 1626 at
Holbeton (IGI), the son of 3. Andrew Hingston and Grace
and died 1659. He married ALICE. The family appear in Allen and Dymond.

Children of Abel Hingston and Honor are:
SUSANNA HINGSTON, b. 1665 at Holbeton (IGI).
ABEL HINGSTON, b. 6 Feb 1666 at Holbeton (IGI). He is the most likely candidate to be the the subject of an obituary in the Friend published in Philadelphia (2 May 1857, vol 30, page 268). "This Friend was born in England about the year 1661. He was an early settler in Philadelphia county, where he resided for many years. Being faithful to the convictions of truth, he grew in religious experience, and became qualified for usefulness in the church. In 1719, he was appointed an elder of Abington Monthly Meeting for Byberry Particular Meeting, and this, as well as many other appointments, testify to the consideration in which he was held by his friends. He was a useful member of religious Society, continuing even ti advanced age a willing labourer for the Truth, in the station to which he was called. He deceased Eleventh mo., 26th, 1747, aged about 86 years."
JOSEPH HINGSTON, b. 2 Mar 1668 at Holbeton (IGI).
PHILIP HINGSTON, b. 19 Feb 1670 at Holbeton (IGI); d. 1670.
GRACE HINGSTON, b. 18 Mar 1672 at Holbeton (IGI).
7. WILLIAM HINGSTON was born 20 Dec 1640
at Holbeton (IGI), the son of 3. Andrew Hingston and Grace.
The Dictionary of Quaker Biography says that he was arrested at Exeter and 1658 (presumably for being a Quaker).
He married SARAH TRIPE 26 May 1666 at Kingsbridge (IGI says 22nd). She may be the daughter of NICHOLAS TRIPE, who is described in the journal
of George Fox, founder of the Quakers. George wrote "The next day
we visited Kingsbridge and at an inn inquired for the sober people of the
town. They directed us to Nicholas Tripe and his wife; and we went
to their home. They sent for the priest with whom we had some discourse;
but he being confounded quickly left us. Nicholas Tripe and his wife
were convinced and, since, there is a good meeting of Friends in that country."
(The story of William Cookworthy, by Hubert Fox, published by the
Cookworthy Museum, Kingsbridge). In 1670 he had some goods distressed for attending a meeting and again in 1671 he had goods distressed to the value of £16.4s.4d. In 1676 he had a large quantity of timber taken, to the value of £35. 15s because he had attended a meeting at Woodhouse. In 1683-85 he was imprisoned at Exeter. In his absence from home was again distrained of goods to the value of £14. 15s. He and others were liberated by the proclamation of James II, who came to the throne in 1685 and issued an amnesty freeing 1500 Quaker prisoners throughout the country. The fines were substantial penalties (£1 in 1671 is would purchase goods to the value of about £126 today, or be equivalent to an income of about £1870).
Children of William Hingston and Sarah Tripe are:
87. JONATHAN HINGSTON,
the son of 86. George Hingston. Of Holbeton,
died 21 Mar 167?.
HENRY HINGSTON. Listed in the Quaker Dictionary of Biography as the eldest son of William, born 19 Feb 1668 (OS) which says that he received a very good education and became very proficient in Latin,Greek and Hebrew. He was a strict Quaker and regarded all forms of amusement as powerful incentives to evil. He felt so deeply about dancing that on one occasion he went to a public ball to protest against it and to remind those taking part that they were under a baptismal vow to forsake pomp and vanity. He also disapproved of the baptism of children and in 1701 wrote a letter of protest to a family about to take part in such a ceremony. Soon after the end of the war with France in 1697 he travelled to Morlaix, where in 1699 he bought a quantity of goods for his business. The duty charged on the goods did not represent their true value and although the mistake was not his, the affair troubled him deeply, so that two years later he wrote to the Commission of Customs in London expressing his willingness to pay the full amount, which he did. He was chiefly known as the author of a book printed in Exeter in 1703 and dedicated to Queen Anne. It was of a religious and moral tendency entitled "A dreadful alarm upon the clouds of heaven, mixed with love". It was not well received and was discourage by the Meeting for Sufferings in 1705. Henry Hingston of Kingsbridge died, apparently unmarried, about the year 1724 at the age of 56. There is a burial entry for a Henry Hingston buried 11 Feb 1720 (OS).
WILLIAM HINGSTON, born 1668 at Kingsbridge (IGI); d. America (A&D).
The child of Jonathan Hingston is:
Generation No. 5
8. JOHN HINGSTON was born 1657 (A&D)
or 26 Feb 1659 at Plymouth (IGI), the son of 4. Walter Hingston
and Sarah Reeve. He married AGNES WILLING 17 Jul 1691 at Holbeton (IGI).
Children of John Hingston and Agnes Willing are:
9. RICHARD HINGSTON was born 1661
(A&D) - 25 Mar 1663 at Plymouth (IGI), the son of 4.
Walter Hingston and Sarah Reeve, and died 10 Feb 1710/11 in Kea, at
house of Thomas Giddy, and was buried at the Burying Place of the Key Meeting
12 Feb 1710/11 (from Prideaux's transcription of the Quaker meeting registers).
(A&D say Nov 1711, IGI says 1710). According to TFF he was a Minister
at Plymouth, but I am not sure of what he was a Minister (Do Quaker Meetings
have Ministers?). He married GERTRUDE (or GARTHRUD) TREGENNEW 18 Mar 1688 at Trenant,
Cornwall. (Her name is also given as Trekennow and the month of the marriage
as Jan - IGI). She was born 27 Jan 1658 at Dulce, Cornwall (IGI-AF). Prideaux
records her christian name as 'Garthred' (from the record of son Andrew's
birth). TFF says her father was Richard Tregennow of Trenant in Duloe,
near Looe and that she died in 1741.
ELIZABETH HINGSTON, born 21 Sep 1692 at Holbeton (IGI), married, firstly,
SMITH; married, secondly, JOSIAS HALL. The Falmouth document says
he came from Buxton in Devon (Brixton would make more sense - I don't know
of a Buxton)
JOHN HINGSTON born 22 Oct 1698 at Holbeton (IGI). Died unmarried.
Lived at Plymouth (A&D). List of whole family from Allen & Dymond.
Children of Richard Hingston and Gertrude Tregennew are:
10. JAMES HINGSTON was born 1652
(Source: Allen & Dymond), the son of 5. James Hingston
and Alice, and probably died 1712/13; 'James Hingston sennex' was buried
at Holbeton 20 Jan 1712/13 and this is the most likely match.
ANDREW HINGSTON, "born ye 26 day of ye 9 month, os, 1692" (Prideaux, transcribed
from meeting registers), Plymouth - this may well mean November 1692 since
numerical abbreviations of months often referred to the Latin component
of the name of the month; died 5 Jan 1762, Penryn and buried 8 Jan 1762
(Prideaux) at Key; married, firstly, MARY REYNOLDS, 9 Jul 1711 at Plymouth
(IGI gives Sep), the daughter of Caleb and Elizabeth Reynolds, lately of
the city of Exeter. They moved from Plymouth to Falmouth in the fourth
month 1722 and from thence to Penryn in 1730 where she died the 5th day
of third month 1735 and was buried the 8th day of same at Key and had no
issue. Andrew married, secondly, ELIZABETH WILKEY, 13 Nov 1740 at
Kingsbridge (IGI) the daughter of Edward and Elizabeth Wilkey of Liskeard,
whom he married on the 13th day of November, 1740. She was baptised
at Liskeard aforesaid on the 18th September 1709 and had no issue.
The IGI says the marriage took place at Kingsbridge. Elizabeth died
on 28 November 1768 at Penzance and was buried at Key on the 3 December
aged 59 years. "He was a worthy member of Society, in his life time well
esteemed by all that knew him and at his death much lamented." (Prideaux).
Andrew took on the care of some of the orphaned children of his brother
Richard (along with Nathaniel Steel, the children's maternal grandfather);
he had no family of his own, and seems to have discharged his part with
diligence and kindness. Richard's second daughter Sarah and some
of the younger children lived with him. John Griffith, a travelling
minister of note among Friends writes in his journal, 1750, that A. Hingston,
wife and niece were “affectionately kind” to him. A.H. died in 1762.

Generation No. 6
11. RICHARD HINGSTON was born 11
Oct 1695 at Plymouth, the son of 9. Richard Hingston and
Gertrude Tregennew, and died 10 Apr 1748 at Kea, Cornwall. He
was described as Surgeon and Apothecary of Penryn. He, and his descendants,
are the subject of a memo
written in 1906 by R.H.F. He married, firstly, SARAH PURCHASE
15 Oct 1718 at Exeter. The eminent “Friend”, Thomas Story, was present
and speaks of the occasion in his Journal as “a good open time”, many present.
His signature on the marriage certificate is in a large bold hand at the
head of the other witnesses. Richard and Sarah Hingston removed with
a daughter Mary who was born to them, in the year 1719, from Plymouth to
Penryn; but his wife died in 1722, and was buried at Kea (now “Come-to-good”)
where his father Richard Hingston of Plymouth, who was a minister among
Friends, had died in 1710 at the house of T. Giddy, and was buried.
He married, secondly, ELIZABETH STEEL 15 Jun 1725 at Key, Cornwall (IGI).
She was born 21 Nov 1708 at Falmouth and died 10 Apr 1747. Elizabeth
was the daughter of Nathaniel Steel, she being, as it appears, under 17
years of age. N. Steele was “a man of note” in Falmouth, and of substance,
a rope-master; his kinsman Lazarus Steele was mayor of the town in 1740.
The Hingstons had a large family, many of whom died young. Thrice
they essayed to perpetuate the name Nathaniel, and the third child lived
to maturity. Many French prisoners of war were in those years landed
at Falmouth, and the business of caring for them medically becoming one
of some profit, R. Hingston obtained by the interest of his father-in-law
that office, but within a year or two he contracted fever from the prisoners
stationed at Kergillack, a farm not far from Falmouth, and died in 1749.
His wife had died the year before at the age of 38, having had thirteen
children. At R. Hingston’s death nine only of his fourteen children
were living, two having died in infancy, and others at 7, 8, and 19 years.
He left this troop of orphans to the care of his brother Andrew Hingston,
and to Nathaniel Steel, who with Robert Scantlebury of Mevagissey, and
his daughter Mary Hingston, were appointed his executors. In his
will, now in the possession of Nathaniel Fox, he consigns(?) his soul to
God, with a good deal of religious expression. There can be little
doubt that there was Phthisis in the Hingston family. It appeared
in both the Fox and Tregelles families. A cousin of Richard, another
Andrew, was dying of phthisis in 1744. They were apparently a large-framed
race of poor vitality.
“Come-to-Good” or Kea meeting house and graveyard where so many of the
family worshipped, married and were buried, is a picturesque spot, secluded
among the hills which border Malpas Road on the Truro River, some three
miles south of that town.
“Memoirs of (?) Cookworthy” of Plymouth, by his grandson Geo. Harrison,
published in London in 1857, contains a series of letters (1740-1747) to
Richard Hingston, who he supplied with drugs. ?.C. was a cultivated
man, linguist, and of literary power, as well as a deep religious character,
and his intimate correspondence with our ancestor implies similar qualities

Children of Richard Hingston and Elizabeth Steel are (with dates as listed in the Dictionary of Quaker Biography which differs from that given in the IGI, udsually by two months:
MARY HINGSTON, b. 22 Jul 1719 at Penryn; d. 1748. Mary died a few
years after her father, probably of the same complaint. She was 25
(This can't be right since if she was born in 1719 she would have been
29 when her father died).
12. JAMES HINGSTON died 23 Oct 1756,
the son of either 10. James Hingston or
James Hingston. He married, firstly,
ROWE 8 Apr 1704, Plymouth St. Andrew, who died 1726 at Holbeton. He
BROOKING in Sep 1730, at Kingsbridge [Quaker Mtg. Register]. She was
born 23 Mar 1703 the daughter of John and Margery Brooking [Quaker mtg.
register]; John was a man of some wealth and lived in Kingsbridge.
NATHANIEL HINGSTON, b. 30 Aug 1726 at Penryn (DQB); d. 4 Feb 1733 (OS).
RICHARD HINGSTON, b. 12 Jul 1728 at Penryn (DQB); buried 12 Jun 1747. Richard
died shortly before his mother: he had been sent to a Friend’s school at
Kendal, making the long journey by coach, and five of his characteristic
school letters are preserved; he learnt “Virgil, Greek grammar, and Cornelius
Nepos”, and his death at 19 must have been a severe trial.
13. ANDREW HINGSTON.
14. LAZARUS HINGSTON.
ELIZABETH HINGSTON, b. 28 Dec 1733 at Penryn (DQB); d. 1802; married JOSEPH
FOX, 17 May 1754 at Penryn (IGI). Joseph was born 1729, the son of George
Fox, a merchant of Par and his wife Anne Debell; he died in 1785; there
is a Wikipedia
entry about him. Elizabeth probably lived with her widowed grand-father
N. Steele after her parents died, and after Nathaniel died she may have
stayed on with other members of his family at Falmouth. Joseph Fox,
who settled at Falmouth as a surgeon somewhere about 1750, would meet her
there, and married her when she was twenty years old, in 1754. They
had a large family, faithfully reproducing the Christian names of their
near kindred. She, who is described as a very stately woman, outlived
her husband seventeen years, dying at 69 in 1802. According to A&D
their children were Anna, who married William Rawes and later Thomas Thompson;
Elizabeth married John Allen: Joseph married Elizabeth Peters; Sarah; Tabitha;
Edward Long married Catherine Brown and later Isabella Ker (22 children!)
- he was a lunatic asylum proprietor at Brislington and developed Weston-super-Mare
as a sea-bathing resort; Rachel; Richard married Hannah Forster; Nathaniel;
Francis married Hester Mills; Philip. Joseph was the first Falmouth Fox
and founder of a medical dynasty (TFF); he was involved in an incident
recorded in Burkes History of Commoners. It seems he was part-owner of
two small cutters, as used by the Revenue. When war broke out in 1778 the
other owners decided to equip them as privateers to take French shipping,
which Joseph as a Quaker opposed. They would not buy out his share but
when the war was over he sent his son to France to return his share of
the prize money to the rightful owners. His children published a pamphlet
"The prize money restored".
NATHANIEL HINGSTON, b. 20 Nov 1735; d. 15 Feb 1736 OS (DQB).
SARAH HINGSTON, b. 20 Jun 1737 at Penryn (DQB); d. 1796; married JOSEPH
TREGELLES 22 Oct 1756 at Penryn (IGI). He was born in 1727, the son of
Joseph Tregelles, a pewterer of Falmouth and his wife Mary Debell and died
in 1795. The Tregelles were a very staunch Quaker family. Their children
were (A&D) John; Anna married Peter Price; Sarah; Joseph; Sarah married
John Abbott; Samuel married Rebecca Smith; Elizabeth married Robert W Fox;
Mary married Thomas W Fox; Catherine Phillips married Joseph
ANN HINGSTON, b. 11 Swp 1738 at Penryn (DQB); d. 21 Dec 1746.
MARTHA HINGSTON, born 26 Mar 1740 at Penryn (DQB); d. 24 Oct 1757.
NATHANIEL HINGSTON, born 1 Jan 1741 (OS) at Penryn (DQB); married 5 Aug 1765
MARY BYRD of Uffculme, Devon, the daughter of Thomas and Ann Bird. According
to the CFHS burials index, Nathaniel died 31 Mar 1816 age 76 (Quaker Qtr.
Meeting). They had no issue.
JOHN HINGSTON, b. 23 Feb 1743 OS at Penryn (A&D give date, IGI also gives place);
died the next day.

JOSIAH HINGSTON, b. 1746; d. 1751, (drowned). (IGI says he was born in
The birth of this James, and his supposed descent from the earlier members
shown here, is frequently quoted (by Allen & Dymond, Jim King etc.),
but we do not know on what it is based. It is repeated here, partly for
convenience, but is not regarded as secure. Andrew Hingston gives a good
of our state of knowledge. The alternative
descent, as given by WEH in his letter of 1905,
is shown in green above.
In his will he was described as a Mercer, which can mean a dealer in
silks, but can also have a broader meaning as one who deals in fabrics
in general, and also possibly in Grocery Wares. Elizabeth may well have
brought money of her own to the marriage, but the amount he leaves in the
will probably indicates that he received inherited wealth himself. The
will records that he had purchased the fee simple of the Manor of Holbeton
whilst he was occupier (as tenant) of same. His bequests included Closes,
Messuages with Appurtenances, but not specifically farms, tenemants, and
the Lordship of the Manor with the antient Rents, Herriotts suits and services.

marrying Samuel Eales and later Thomas Luscombe.

17. HENRY HINGSTON.
ELIZABETH HINGSTON, b. 3 May 1720, Holbeton, died 1760 (A&D); married

sons James and John (James' will) plus other brothers and sisters given
by A&D as Ann, Mary, Joseph, Henry, Richard, Samuel and William. A&D
also list two sons, both called John, born 1755 and 1760 (i.e. after the
date of James' will).
MARY HINGSTON, b. 1722, Holbeton; d. 1722.

Generation No. 7
13. ANDREW HINGSTON was born 4 Apr 1730
at Penryn (IGI), the son of 11. Richard Hingston and Elizabeth
Steel, and died 1757. His father, who died when Andrew was 18, left
his son money “to give with him to some honest able surgeon for his accomplishment
to that business”. He was accordingly taken by his Uncle Andrew to
Plymouth, where he was apprenticed for about four years. The fourteen
letters preserved at Liskeard give a curious account of his life there.
In 1752 he appears to have set up as a surgeon and apothecary at Callington.
Next year he married at St. Germans one of the honourable Quaker family
Debell of Looe, and died four years later at the age of 27, leaving two
children, besides a third born five months after his death. From
the eldest of these the Liskeard branch of the family comes. He married
SARAH DEBELL 25 Dec 1753 (IGI says variously at Looe, at Germans, and 'of
Penryn'). She was born 1732 at Looe (IGI-AF) the daughter of Benjamin and
Children of Andrew Hingston and Sarah Debell are:
14. LAZARUS HINGSTON was born 23
Dec 1731 (IGI), the son of 11. Richard Hingston and Elizabeth
Steel, and died 1780. He married JANE BLEWETT, 10 Jun 1753 at Landulph,
Cornwall (by a priest). (The IGI gives her surname spelt both as Blewett
and as Blawell). Lazarus had employment with his grand-father, taking
the Rope-walk at Falmouth of his, but as letters show, they disagreed.
He married and had a large family, who were apparently not members of the
Friends; perhaps he may have been disowned for “marrying out”, as was common
on those strict days. He was however buried at Kea, having died at
48, ruined by Cotton Speculation. He and his brother Nathaniel were
both very large men. Local tradition told of the difficulty of conveying
their remains out of the house for interment. Lazarus’ large family
seems to have had little perpetuation.
19. RICHARD HINGSTON.
SARAH HINGSTON, born 4 Apr 1756 at Penryn (IGI), married PAUL NICOLAS.
A&D lists their children as Frances married William Rundell; Loveday;
ANDREW HINGSTON, born 11 May 1758 at Looe (IGI); d. 23 Jun 1820, Topsham;
married ANN WESTCOMBE the daughter of Thomas Westcombe of Bridport in the
County of Dorset. . (There are some marriages in the DFHS marriage index
in the Woodbury and Clyst St. Mary area in the early 19th century. They
are mainly of Hingston women, so they do not appear in the 1851 census
as Hingston, but they were probably still living then. As far as I am aware,
Andrew's death at Topsham is the only indication of a Hingston moving to
that part of Devon, apart from 30. James Hingston at
Sowton and Arthur
Hingston (Tree HH) at Littleham)
Children of Lazarus Hingston and Jane Blewett are:
15. JAMES HINGSTON was born 12 Apr
1745 at Bristol (IGI) (NB - all his siblings born in Cornwall according
to the IGI), the son of 11. Richard Hingston and Elizabeth
Steel. He married MARY NANCARROW 15 Oct 1766 at Marazion (IGI). She died in 1769, possibly in childbirth.
ELIZABETH HINGSTON, born 1754 at Falmouth (A&D gives date - IGI gives
date and place).
RICHARD HINGSTON, born 1756 at Falmouth (IGI)
20. LAZARUS HINGSTON.
NATHANIEL HINGSTON, born 1760 at Falmouth (IGI).
MARTHA HINGSTON, born 1762 at Falmouth (IGI).
ANN HINGSTON, born 1764 at Falmouth (IGI), married JOHN SMILEY 7 Sep 1786
at Falmouth (CFHS) (by a priest - i.e. not Quaker).
JANE HINGSTON, born 1766 at Falmouth (IGI). (died young)
ALICE HINGSTON, born 1768 at Falmouth (IGI). She probably died 13 Jun 1816
(age 51) (Quaker Qtr. Meeting - CFHS Index)
JANE HINGSTON, born 1770 at Falmouth (IGI).
Children of James Hingston and Mary Nancarrow are:
16. WILLIAM HINGSTON was born 4
Apr 1709 in Holbeton (IGI says he was baptised on 13 Jun 1709), the son
of 12. James Hingston and Ann Rowe, and died Jan 1781.
He married AMY ALGAR 25 Apr 1734 in Holbeton. (In the IGI she is consistently
shown as Mary Algar). She may have died Oct 1783 (there is an IGI reference
to the death of Amy Hingston, her granddaughter at this time but that cannot
be correct since that Amy later went on to marry - this Amy is the only
logical alternative known). William would have inherited substantially
under his father's will if his half-brother John's line had failed, otherwise
he featured mainly as a trustee. As he was married with a family at the
time of his father's death, it is possible that he had already been given
a portion of the inheritance.

21. JAMES HINGSTON.
MARY HINGSTON, born 4 Sep 1769 at Bristol (IGI) married WILLIAM COLLIER
23 Mar 1798 at Bristol (IGI). A&D show the children as William; Mary:
Martha; Charlotte married Edward James; Susan. She died in 1851.
Children of William Hingston and Amy Algar are:
17. HENRY HINGSTON was born 9 Jun
1718 in Holbeton, the son of 12. James Hingston and Ann
Rowe, and was buried 3 May 1791 [Quaker Register]. He married SARAH
BROWNE 1755 at Holbeton (IGI) (not in DFHS Index); she died 9 Dec 1762,
a week after her son Henry's birth. In his father's will he is bequeathed
the family home, income from various property, and the residue of the estate.
22. JAMES HINGSTON.
AGNES HINGSTON, baptised 23 Jun 1738, Holbeton (IGI); married JAMES LESTEN
18 Feb 1765 at Yealmpton (DFHS Index). Agnes was still alive when James
Lesten made his will in Jun 1790, although her death is sometimes quoted
as being in Oct 1788 - this must be an error. See
ANN HINGSTON, b. 1740, Holbeton; married WILLIAM? YABSLEY (about 1763 -
IGI). A&D show the children as Elizabeth married John Blackwell and
? Browne; William. (DFHS Index has a marriage on Ann Hingston and
Nathaniel Yabsley at Yealmpton on 12 Feb 1772 - it is the only Yabsley/Hingston
marriage in their index)
MARY HINGSTON, b. 1741 at Holbeton; married JAMES WYATT (brother of Thomasine
who married 22. James), 30 Jan 1767 at Yealmpton (DFHS
Index). A&D show the children as James; Ann married Jonathan Nicholls;
Mary married John Head; William ; John married Mary Loye; ?? married John
23. WILLIAM HINGSTON.
24. ANDREW HINGSTON.
Children of Henry Hingston and Sarah Browne are:
18. JOHN HINGSTON was born Jan 1736/37
(IGI has 10 Mar 1737) in Kingsbridge, the son of 12. James
Hingston and Elizabeth Brooking. He married, firstly, RACHEL FOX 31
Aug 1760 at Austle (St Austell?); she was the daughter of George Fox of Par, by his second wife
Anne Debell (Foster)
and died 3 Oct 1761. He married, secondly, RACHEL COLLIER 9 Feb 1763 in
Plymouth ; she had been born in 1737 and was the daughter of Joseph Collier by his wife Dorothy
Fox (Foster) (See also Allen and Dymond). John inherited substantially
under his father's will, including the Lordship of the Manor of Holbeton,
and would have received much of his brother Henry's portion if that line
had failed. John died in 1816 (QDTI) and Rachel died in 1824. The Annual Monitor 1825 contains a brief obituary,noting that "she had been a valuable Elder for many years" and that "from William Penn's works in particular, she said she received much instruction, especially from his No cross, No crown".
Child of John Hingston and Rachel Fox is:
Children of John Hingston and Rachel Collier are:
RACHEL HINGSTON, b. 21 Sep 1761 (Source: Quaker Quarterly Meeting Register);
d. Nov 1762.
27. JOSEPH HINGSTON.
DOROTHY HINGSTON, b. 31 Jul 1766, Plymouth (IGI); married ROBERT WERE FOX,
28 Apr 1790, Kingsbridge. (Foster gives details of this family but they
are not recorded here). A&D gives the children as Rachel Anna; Dorothy;
Robert Were married Rachel C Prideaux.
JOHN FOX HINGSTON, b. 17 May 1769, Kingsbridge; d. 9 Jul 1769.
Generation No. 8
19. RICHARD HINGSTON was born at Penryn
4 Dec 1754 (IGI), the son of 13. Andrew Hingston and Sarah
Debell and died 26 Jun 1813 aged 59 (Quaker Qtr. Meeting in CFHS Index).
He married ELIZABETH PEARSE 1778. She was born about 1757 (IGI-AF) and
died 29 Nov 1835 aged 81 (Quaker Qtr Meeting in CFHS Index). Hambly refers
to this family (in the context of being the father of 28. Richard) as being
of Mevagissey, born in 1747. He refers to Elizabeth, whose surname he does
not give, as being a Quaker and being a great friend of William Cookworthy
the discoverer of China Clay. Both of these facts are probably true of
Elizabeth Pearse, and probably also of Richard, through the connection
to the Hingstons of Holbeton and Kingsbridge. (See Foster). However, the
Mevagissey link is less sure; there were other Hingstons at Mevagissey
later but from Tree HH.
Hambly refers to the "Pedigree of Hingston, of Hingston Down, near Liskeard
where well-known battle was fought in Civil War: Arms of Hingston: a bent
arm holding a battleaxe. Crest: Deer with olive leaf in mouth." The same
device appears on the Allen and Dymond Pedigree. The famous battle of Hingston
Down was fought in the Dark Ages; there was fighting in the Civil War in
East Cornwall in 1643, but none of the famous battles is described as being
at Hingston Down although there may have been a minor skirmish there. I
am inclined to believe that the Hingston/Moon connection referred to by
Allen and Dymond and the Hingston/??/Trevan/Hambly connection referred
to by Hambly are the same and this page has been constructed on the assumption
that this is so. However, original sources need to be traced to confirm
all of this.
Children of Richard Hingston and Elizabeth Pearse are:
20. LAZARUS HINGSTON, the son of 14.
Lazarus Hingston and Jane Blewett was born 1758 at Falmouth (IGI) and
died 13 Feb 1820 aged 59 (Quaker Qtr Meeting Register - CFHS). He married
MARY ANNE PAUL 7 Nov 1797, Falmouth, Cornwall (CFHS Index); she died 15
May 1831, aged 73 (Quaker - CFHS) so was born about 1758.
28. RICHARD HINGSTON.
29. ANDREW HINGSTON.
ELIZABETH HINGSTON, baptised 1784 at Penryn (IGI), married WILLIAM RAWLE
1805 (IGI). The IGI-AF entry has her dying 30 Mar 1838 at Liskeard where
she was buried on 5 Apr; it does not refer to her marrying. It is possible
that one or other of these IGI entries is wrong.
NATHANIEL HINGSTON, b. about 1786 at Penryn (IGI); d. 27 May 1788, Plymouth
SARAH HINGSTON, born 1790 at Penryn (IGI); married PEARCE ROGERS 1 Aug
1815 at Liskeard (CFHS index). The IGI-AF entry gives her death as 14 Apr
Child of Lazarus Hingston and Mary Anne Paul is:
JANE HINGSTON, born 1798, Falmouth (IGI) married GEORGE DANIEL DOHERTY,
5 Mar 1823 at Falmouth (CFHS). George Doherty was a surgeon of Falmouth,
who died of consumption without issue.
21. JAMES HINGSTON, the son of 15.
James Hingston and Mary Nancarrow was born at Falmouth 26 Aug 1767 at Falmouth (QDTI). By his early twenties he was establised at Bristol as a house carpenter (and from 1802 described as a cabinet maker).
He married, firstly, ANNA FRY 28 Dec 1791 at the Society of Friends, Bristol. She was the daughter of Joseph Fry (1728-1787), late of Bristol and London, chocolate manufacturer and typefounder, and his wife Anna, born Portsmouth, (1732-1803). There was only one child, stillborn. He married, secondly, in 1794, MARY BEAVEN (1763?-1798), daughter of Thomas Beaven of Greinton, west of Street, and Elizabeth. There were three sons, one of whom was stillborn. He married, thirdly, on 13 Aug 1801, ANN FUTCHER
(1772?-1822), daughter of Michael Futcher, late of Romsey, Hants and Hannah, at Friends Meeting House, Tottenham, London (IGI). Of the eleven children, five sons and three daughters lived to adulthood.
He married, fourthly, SARAH LOVELL (1774-1829), daughter of Robert (1746-1804) of Bristol, cabinet maker and pin manufacturer, and Edith Lovell (born Bourne, 1741-1781). There were no children. He was living at Wilder Street, Stokes Croft, Bristol at the time of his death 6 Oct 1829 aged 62 years.
Allen & Dymond show James having four wives and ten children, but
the marriages are not dated, nor are the children given birth dates, so
it is impossible to sort out which wife was the mother of which child.
In the IGI, two of the marriages are shown and twelve children - it is
possible that A&D only showed the surviving children. The IGI lists
show all the births taking place in Bristol, but they do not give a parish. He is listed in the Quaker Dictionary of British Quakers in Trade and Industry (QDTI) which fills in some of the gaps.
Child of James Hingston and Anna Fry is:
JAMES HINGSTON, born Sep 1792 at Bristol (IGI) (Stillborn -QDTI).

WILLIAM HINGSTON, baptised 20 Mar 1767, Holbeton; buried 2 Oct 1795, Holbeton.
AGNESS HINGSTON, baptised 17 Feb 1769, Holbeton. Holbeton parish records
have the burial of an 'Agnes Hingston spinster' on 20 Oct 1788 (she is
the only known match) but others have put her death in 1829.
AMY HINGSTON, baptised 25 Jan 1771, Holbeton; d. Oct 1783 (This cannot
be correct - it probably refers to her grandmother); married WILLIAM JENKINS
2 Feb 1790 at Newton Ferrers (DFHS Index). A&D show the children as
Amy (m Shepheard), Elizabeth (m Wm Willing), Ann (m Wm Pitts), William
(married Elizabeth Wyatt 3 Jan 1833, grandaughter of Mary Hingston who
married James Wyatt (see HD#16)), Thomasin (m Wm Hyne),

Holbeton (assumed match - best candidate).
RICHARD HINGSTON, baptised 10 Apr 1778 at Holbeton. Buried 18 June 1799
or 27 Feb 1803, Holbeton
William seems to have been close to the family of his brother Andrew.
He was appointed guardian to Andrew's children during their minority, both
his own having died very young, and the inscription on his gravestone may
have been genuinely felt. He is buried beside the grave of his second daughter,
who is unusual in having a headstone. In the will of his brother he is
described as 'of Calstone', at the time of the making of James Lesten's
will in 1790 and his later marriages as of Newton Ferrers, but in his will
as 'of Holbeton'.
M.I. at Holbeton. His exemplary attention to the wants of his fellow
creatures/ Proved his benevolence towards mankind./ He when guardian was
faithful to his trust,/ And the fatherless have frequently experienced/
His attention to their wants,/ Which fully demonstrate the benevolence
of his heart.

Skinner Estate, Bridgend, Holbeton to his wife. A
copy of the will is available.
M.I. at Holbeton. "Here rests ye Sacred dust of one whose name/ Was
by virtues honoured & well known,/ A father whose whole life was one
of great aim/ To make his Children's virtues like his own./ Father, Farewell,
in peaceful slumber rest/ Secure of thy reward among ye blest./ Thy greatest
treasure in thy life we see/ And rich and blest are they that follow thee."

SARAH HINGSTON, born 10 Jan 1790 [Quaker meeting register according to
Prideaux]; married SMITH. (The IGI shows a Sarah born 19 Jan 1798 at Holbeton.)
Children of Henry Hingston and Mary King. Modbury records, which I have
seen but not fully noted, show three children Catherine Sarah, Henry and
Mary being brought for christening on the same day, 15 May 1798. These
are also noted in the IGI. This all needs checking with the original records.
According to Allen and Dymond the children are:

Joseph Ball of Bridgewater, tobacco merchant, and his wife Susannah (nee Reynolds), and died in 1790. He married, secondly, his
distant cousin CATHERINE PHILLIPS TREGELLES 17 Sep 1796 in Plymouth (IGI);
she was born in 1774, the daughter of Joseph Tregelles and his wife Sarah Hingston (who
was in turn the daughter of 11. Richard Hingston and Elizabeth
Steel). (Foster) His death was reported in the Western Times,
Sat 9 May 1835 "On Thursday, at his house, Princes Square, Joseph Hingston
Esq, aged 71, one of the Society of Friends, a Director of the Joint Stock
Bank in Plymouth". He was variously described as a Timber Merchant and Banker. He has an entry in the Quaker Directory of Britsh Quakers in Trade and Industry where he is described as a merchant of Kingsbridge. Of the nine children (presumably of the second marriage), two sons and five daughters survived to adulthood.
MARY HINGSTON, married CHARLES CLEVERTON CUMING. (Mary Hingston, spinster,
married Charles Cuming, widower, a merchant of Plymouth Charles, at Plymouth
St. Andrew 28 May 1816 - DFHS Marriage index). Tom Kelly <firstname.lastname@example.org>
is researching the Cuming family. He says that the children were
Richard Charles White (1827-), Sarah Jane White Cuming (1829-), Maria (1831-),
Edward White (1833-), John White (1834-). The father is variously
described as Carpenter or Builder. In the 1841 Census, Mary
(born c. 1796) is living with her unmarried sister Catherine and Cuming
children Catherine (c. 1816), Charles H (c. 1819), George H (c. 1828),
Adelaide (c. 1830), Anne (c. 1834), James (c. 1837) and William (c. 1839),
all living in the parish of Charles the Martyr, Plymouth. It is presumed
that the father, Charles, has died by this date. (1841 census info
from Michael Palmer)
Children of Joseph Hingston and Sarah Ball are:
Children of Joseph Hingston and Catherine Tregelles are:
SARAH (ELIZABETH) BALL HINGSTON, b. 6 Sep 1786, Kingsbridge; married WALTER
PRIDEAUX, 30 May 1805, Kingsbridge. He was the son of George Prideaux and
Anna Cookworthy. Sarah and Walter had issue:- Walter, married Elizabeth
Williams; Charles, who Foster says married twice but had no issue while
A&D says he had children by Elizabeth Abbott; Henry, married Agnes
Maxwell Morris; Alfred, married Ann Vivian; Frederick, married Frances
(Fanny) Ash Ball; Joseph Hingston, died unmarried 1840; Sarah Anna, married
her cousin S. P. Tregelles - no issue; Susan (or Susanna) Rachel married
Charles Pridham; Augusta, unmarried; Lucy, unmarried; Emily Ball, married
Francis C. Ball. (Details from Foster - A&D agree on most facts).
34. JOSEPH HINGSTON.
CATHERINE TREGELLES HINGSTON, b. 7 Dec 1797, Dodbrooke; married WILLIAM
BROWNE of Torquay, 8 Jul 1829, West Devon (DFHS marriage index and Foster).
RACHEL COLLIER HINGSTON, b. 30 Aug 1799, Dodbrooke; married GEORGE FOX,
4 Aug 1819, Plymouth (Quaker - DFHS marriage index and Foster). George
was described as a Merchant, of Wadebridge in Cornwall in the DFHS index
but in Foster is described as being of Ford Park, Plymouth. A&D describes
13 children; Edwin married Margaret Wylie; Frederick Hingston; George Edward;
Mary Catherine (died young); Pennington; Rachael Anna; Charlotte Elizabeth;
Joseph Hingston; Albert; Richard Reynolds; Francis William; Mary Catherine;
SUSANNA ANNA HINGSTON, b. 19 Oct 1801, Dodbrooke, died 1843.

EDWIN HINGSTON, b. 4 Jul 1809, Dodbrooke, died 10 Nov 1810..
SOPHIA PRICE HINGSTON, b. 22 Apr 1812, Dodbrooke, died 1852, s.p.; married
ALFRED GILKES, 21 Oct 1836, Plymouth (Quaker - DFHS Marriage Index). Alfred
is described as a Silk Manufacturer of Steward Street, London. Foster says
that he was the son of Benjamin Gilbert Gilkes and died 1871. According
to David Smith, who runs a one-name
study on Gilkes, Alfred was probably born on 5 Oct 1808 in the Devizes
area and was one of 10 children of Benjamin Gilbert Gilkes who was Superintendent
(Head) at the Quaker School at Sidcot, Winscombe, Somerset from 1839-1846.
They were apparently related to Edgar Gilkes who built the ill-fated Tay
LOUISA ELLEN HINGSTON, b. 1 Aug 1814, Dodbrooke; married GILBERT GILKES,
9 Oct 1835, Plymouth (Quaker - DFHS Marriage Index). Gilbert was a Silk
Manufacturer of Steward Street, The Old Artillery Ground, London and died
1863, s.p. He was a brother of Alfred who married Louisa's sister Sophia.
Gilbert was believed to have been born on 27 Dec 1806. On 17 Oct
1835 The Western Times reported "Oct 9, at Friends Meeting House, Gilbert
Gilkes, Esq, of Reading, to Louisa Ellen, youngest daughter of the late
Joseph Hingston, Esq, Banker, of Plymouth"
Generation No. 9
28. RICHARD HINGSTON was baptised at Penryn
in 1779 (IGI), the son of 19. Richard Hingston and Elizabeth
Pearse. He married ANN MOON 20 Sep 1810 (or 1814) at Liskeard (IGI-AF);
the marriage does not appear in the CFHS marriage index. She was born about
1793 (IGI-AF). Apparently he was a Surgeon of Liskeard (ref. Trevan). He
died 13 Jul 1860 (IGI-AF). The CFHS index of the 1851 census shows the
family at Liskeard Borough; Richard age 71 born Devonport; wife Ann, age
70, born at Liskeard; sons Andrew age 29 and Richard age 26, both unmarried
born at Liskeard.
Children of Richard Hingston and Ann Moon are:
29. ANDREW HINGSTON was born at Penryn in 1782
(IGI), the son of 19. Richard Hingston and Elizabeth Pearse.
He married, firstly, HANNAH HOLLAND on 29 May 1819 in Chaddesden, Derbyshire
(by Licence); she had been christened 18 Apr 1788 in Chaddesden, daughter
of Richard Holland and Ellen Bailey. Hannah must have died since
he married, secondly, on 23 Jun 1822, also by Licence, her sister ELIZABETH
HOLLAND, who had been christened 28 May 1790 in Chaddesden. Both
marriages are recorded in the IGI but Hingston is spelt Kingston.
ANDREW HINGSTON. Quoted in Allen and Dymond. Presumably this Andrew died
before the second was born. Only one Andrew is mentioned in Hambly but
he may not have included those that died in infancy. The IGI-AF refers
to him being born in 1815 at Liskeard and dying the same year.
67. RICHARD HINGSTON.
66. ANDREW HINGSTON.
ANN HINGSTON, c 1823 (IGI) at Liskeard. Not mentioned in Hambly or in the
ELIZABETH HINGSTON (From the web page of the Trevan
family - she was born in 1813 and died on 18 Nov 1884. She married
Frederick Trevan (1803- 22 Feb 1885), a Surgeon of Port Isaac, Cornwall
in the 1st Quarter of 1841 in the Liskeard Registration District). They
lived at the White House, Port Isaac, a Tudor house that has been in the
same family for 12 generations but often passing through the female line.
They had six children, one of whom, Anne Trevan, married Henry A. Hambly
of Treharrock, Cornwall whose son, Edmund Hambly wrote a book of family
history in about 1920, from which I have been sent a small extract.
JANE ANN HINGSTON. Not mentioned in Hambly or in the 1851 census.
Allen & Dymond show Andrew having two wives and two children. No
dates are given so it is not clear which woman is the mother of which child.
Much of the information about this family and their descendants comes
from Edward Perry <email@example.com> and Michael F. Palmer
<firstname.lastname@example.org> to whom I am grateful. This page is a combination
of their information.
In the London Gazette 1 Jan 1814 there is a notice that the partnership
subsisting between Richard Phillips and Andrew Hingston of the Poultry
London, Druggists, was this day dissolved by mutual consent. Andrew
seems to have moved to Cheltenham in about 1818 where he was a chemist
or druggist. According to The Times newspaper  he dissolved
his partnership [as a Druggist] with a J.Curtis. In 1838 he was made
bankrupt. Amongst his papers (held in Gloucester Record Office D2025
Box132) there is a copy of a will of his uncle Andrew Hingston 1758 - 1820
(son of 13. Andrew Hingston). The estate was divided
between his wife Ann Hingston (nee Westcombe) and his nieces and nephews
but leaving a greater share to his nephew Andrew (£500). Also
amongst his papers was a Marriage Settlement with Elizabeth Holland thus
giving the link to Chaddesden, Derbyshire and his first marriage to Hannah
Holland. According to the Gloucestershire Census (1841 to 1871) he lived
at 1 Zirah Terrace, Charlton Kings until his death in 1869. It seems
that after his bankruptcy he continued as a Chemist and Druggist (according
to the 1841 census and the 1844 Pigot's directory, but the 1856 Post Office
Directory described him also as Post Master)
Pigot's Directory for Cheltenham, 1830, shows Andrew Hingston, Chymist
and Druggist, 98 High St.
The children of Andrew and Elizabeth were:
79. THOMAS HINGSTON, born 9 May 1802 at
Bristol (IGI), the eldest son of 21. James and Anne
Hingston, married MARY RING, daughter of Robert and Hannah Ring of
Bedminster Bristol, at the Parish Church (Sep Qtr 1839). On the 20th
September 1842 Thomas Hingston died at his residence 10 Park Street, Bristol,
aged 40 years. On 27 July 1897 at Te Puke, N.Z., Mary, widow of Thomas
Hingston of Bristol, died aged 81 years.
83. ANDREW HOLLAND HINGSTON, baptised 21 May
1823 at St Mary's, Cheltenham
RICHARD HINGSTON, baptised 1 Jun 1825 at St Mary's, Cheltenham (name spelt
HINCKSTONE). He died at 1 Zirah Terrace, Charlton Kings on
7 Feb 1844 of consumption (tuberculosis) and was buried 14 Feb 1844 at
Charlton Kings, when he was supposedly aged 19. He was described
as a druggist so was presumably assisting his father.

in Holbeton, the son of 22. James Hingston and Thomasine
Wyatt. He married ELIZABETH TREE 28 Jul 1800 at Sowton, near Exeter,
Devon (IGI). (In 1805 the IGI shows an Elizabeth Hingston marrying a George
Manning at Sowton on 5 Nov - was she a widow? Perhaps James died?). See
comments about marriages east of Exeter under Andrew son of 13.
GERTRUDE MARY HINGSTON born 25th August 1840. She attended Sidcot

census the family were living at Ashford in Aveton Gifford. Andrew
was described as a Landed Proprietor, born at Holbeton; Sarah was aged
76, born at Diptford; daughter Ann was living with them but Sarah was living
with (and presumably housekeeping for) her elderly uncle, Richard
Robins, at Pinheys Farm, South Pool.

1780 in Holbeton, the son of 24. Andrew Hingston and Honour
Balsom. He married ELIZABETH STAPPERS 16 Nov 1816 in Stoke Damerel,
by License (DFHS marriage index). He was described as a Quarterman in the
Dockyard. She died 12 May 1857 and Henry seems to have died in 1861.
Probate on both their wills was granted to Nicholas HUTCHENS executor of

33. JAMES HINGSTON was baptised
27 Jun 1789 in Holbeton, the son of 24. Andrew Hingston
and Honour Balsom, and died 18 Jul 1849 in Maitland Farm, Longford,
Tasmania. One description of his birthplace says "Herodsfoot, Devon",
but Herodsfoot is a small town near Liskeard in Cornwall. The source
is apparently a book "Hagley" by E.G.Scott. This may refer to a different
James Hingston, since we know that there were Hingstons in the Liskeard
area at about this time. James married ELIZABETH THOMAS (of Newton
Ferrers) on 15 Oct 1818 in Holbeton. She was the daughter of Jonathan
(who later emigrated with his wife and 2 sons to Australia). Elizabeth
had died by 1841, and James emigrated with his family (with the exception
of his son Andrew who remained in England), first to Roadwright's sheep
station on the Baewon River in Victoria, Australia, but finding conditions
hard they moved on to Launceston in Tasmania, where the family settled
and flourished. A newspaper
report of 1942 celebrates 100 years in Tasmania. A letter
from his son John to James' niece Sarah provides an interesting insight
into early settler life in Tasmania. A lot of the information regarding
the children of William, John and Robert has been supplied by Karen
Hughes who has a site dedicated to Tasmanian genealogy. Karen's
work has been updated by Cathy Stevenson and the Tasmanian descendants
of James and Elizabeth, described below, reflect that work See

Children of James Hingston and Elizabeth Thomas are:
34. JOSEPH HINGSTON was born 5 May
1788 at Dodbrooke,Kingsbridge (QDTI), the son of 27. Joseph Hingston and Sarah
Ball, and died 6 Feb 1852. He married ELIZABETH TALWYN KENWAY 8 Sep
1825 in Kingsbridge (Quaker - DFHS marriage index). He was described as
'junior' and a Merchant, of Dodbrooke House and was an elder of the Kingsbridge Meeting. Foster says that Elizabeth
was the daughter of James Kenway of Bridport and that she died on 17 Mar
1869 at St Leonards, Exeter; she was born about 1791. (According to Judith
Taylor, who is researching the Kenway family, and would like to hear
from anyone with information about that family, Elizabeth's Quaker birth
record, from the Dorset & Hants QM, shows that she was born on the
8th Feb 1792, the daughter of James Kenway and Ann; James was described
as a hardwareman). In the 1851
census Joseph (described as a timber and coal merchant), Elizabeth
and Josephine are described as visitors at the house of Carteret G. Ellis
at the Esplanade, Plymouth St. Andrew. She died in 1869In the LDS transcription the name
is spelt Kingston, but this is believed to be a mis-reading of the microfilm.
They are also described as all being born in Exeter, which is incorrect. He has a brief entry in the QDTI but it does not give much detail.

ELIZABETH JANE THOMAS HINGSTON, baptised 12 May 1826, Newton Ferrers; d.
Ulverstone, Tasmania. She married FREDERICK LUKE FRAMPTON 12 Jun 1850 at
the Wesleyan Chapel at Longford, Tasmania. Frederick was originally from
Somerset in England and born about 1822. They had at least 7 children (A
boy, born 29 Apr 1851; Frederick Giles, born 17
Jun 1853 and married his cousin CHARLOTTE SOPHIA HINGSTON

born 19 Feb 1868). Most of these were known to TWH but without dates.
TWH also recorded a daughter Ida.
48. JOHN BALSOM THOMAS HINGSTON.
JAMES HINGSTON. Born about 1824 in Newton Ferrers, but his baptism
has not been found. In the 1850s he went to Victoria in Australia in search
of gold, together with his brother-in-law Frederick Frampton, but was unsuccessful.
He died in Exton, Tasmania.
49. ROBERT THOMAS HINGSTON.
Children of Joseph Hingston and Elizabeth Kenway are:
35. CHARLES HINGSTON was born 27
Apr 1805 in Dodbrooke, the son of 27. Joseph Hingston and
Catherine Tregelles. He married, firstly, 8 Mar 1830 in Kendal?, MARY
BRAITHWAITE, the daughter of George Braithwaite of Kendal. He married,
secondly, in 1837, LOUISA JANE PARKER, daughter of Sir William George Parker,
Bart.; she was born about 1815 at Cricklade in Wiltshire (according to
the 1851 census). In the 1851
census the family were living at Sussex Terrace, Plymouth St. Andrew.
Charles was described as a Physician M.D until he retired on health grounds in 1866. All the children are living with
them except the youngest, Sophie, who presumably had not yet been born;
the children were all born at Plymouth. Charles died in 1872 and is buried at Ford Park Cemetery in Plymouth.

and Josephine Elizabeth (according to Foster - A&D only give the first
Genista Spencer (a descendant) <Twojays666@aol.com> writes:- Charles
belonged to the Society of Friends, and Louisa to the Plymouth Brethren,
so there were many restriction in dress and in their behaviour in their
household. The theatre and music were prohibited as "worldly", no
alcoholic drinks were permitted in the house, and all extravagances in
dress were discouraged. But Louisa was a very lively person, even
when she was over 70. Her speech was vigorous and direct and she
did not suffer fools gladly. Children always felt that they were
included in fools and were in awe of her. It was incredible to them
that once, when newly married, she had in a moment of exasperation thrown
a hot potato at her husband across the table.
In a picture of Charles Hingston and Louisa Parker, Louisa is seated
holding a book in her hands which are hidden under a plaid shawl across
her knees. She has the thin features and longish Parker nose, her
hair is straight, parted in the middle and drawn forward to hang in side
ringlets of exaggerated length. She is dignified and impressive.
A family history relates three pieces on information about Charles.
He saw Napoleon when he called in at Plymouth on his way to Elba; he might
have made his fortune with a medicine for cholera during an epidemic (but
he didn't); he died from over work and under nourishment.
Many of his descendants were all christened with Alison as 2nd or 3rd
names after Charles' friend Sir Archibald Alison, author of the History

36. ALFRED HINGSTON was born 2 Apr
1806 in Dodbrooke, the son of 27. Joseph Hingston and Catherine
Tregelles. He married MARY NOTTAGE 1831, daughter of James Barton Nottage
and Jane? of Lancaster; she was born in Lancaster in about 1808 according
to the 1851 census.
Alfred worked at the General Bank in 1824 and later at the Devon and Cornwall Bank where he eventually became the Manager. Alfred is buried in Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth.
LOUISA HINGSTON, b. About 1839, Plymouth; d. 12 Oct 1854.

FANNY CATHERINE HINGSTON, b. 24 Dec 1846, Plymouth; married 10 Sep 1867
at Plymouth (IGI) ARTHUR JAMES HILL, the son of Rev. R. Hill of Bath. Three
daughters (Foster). (The IGI spells her middle name as Catheside but this
is assumed to be a mistake - it is not spelt this way anywhere else.)
CLARA GERTRUDE HINGSTON was born About 1849. She married 41. GEORGE
WILFRED HINGSTON About 1869, son of Alfred Hingston and Mary Nottage.
SOPHIE ELIZABETH HINGSTON, b. About 1851, Plymouth.
The children of Alfred and Mary are derived from several sources. Allen
& Dymond list 15 children, some of whom are probably born after the
1851 census which shows some of the children. Some are mentioned in the
IGI but the dates are suspect.
In the 1851
census the family were living at Lockyer St., Plymouth St. Andrew.
The elder Alfred is described as a Banker. Alfred (junior) is described
as an undergraduate. The census list of children in Alfred (19), Jane (18),
Mary (16), Joseph (15), Esther (12), George (11), Emma (10), Rosette (5)
and Augustus (1). The youngest four children listed by Allen and Dymond
are absent, presumably because they had not yet been born, but notably
absent was Frederick Collier whose birth is given in the IGI and who is
mentioned in A&D. If the IGI birth date of 1835 is correct, he would
have been about 16 at the time of the census and he does not appear anywhere
in Devon. Also living with them in 1851 was a visitor, Jane Nottage, age
62 and a widow, from Lancaster, presumably a relative (mother?) of Mary.
Foster lists only 10 children, leaving out Francis, Lucy, Caroline and
Children of Alfred Hingston and Mary Nottage are:
ALFRED NOTTAGE HINGSTON, b. 8 Dec 1831, Plymouth; attended Wadham
College, Oxford from 1850; St. Mary Hall B.A. and M.A., 1858, Vicar
of Churchstow, Devon, 1866-1882. We have circumstantial evidence
that he was Curate of Congleton in Cheshire in 1862. He married MARY
HARRIS, 24 Jan 1872, (by which time he would have been 40) at Plymouth
(Source: IGI). Foster says that she was the daughter of T. Harris of Kingsbridge
and that the marriage took place in Southsea. Foster also says he was the
vicar of Kingsbridge, not Churchstow, but this should be easy to check.
JANE CATHERINE HINGSTON, b. About 1832, Plymouth.
MARY ELIZABETH HINGSTON, b. About 1834, Plymouth; d. 10 Oct 1851, s.p.

Generation No. 10
67. RICHARD HINGSTON was born 1819 at Liskeard
(IGI), the son of 28. Richard Hingston and Ann Moon.
He was a doctor. On 8 Nov 1860, aged 35, when he was described as a solicitor
(N.B.) he married ELIZABETH MARY ROSEWALL, of Talland, age 25, daughter
of (Dr?) Thomas Rosewall, gentleman. In the 1851 census he is described
as 26 and is unmarried, living with his parents - that would put his birth
at 1825. In 1871 he is shown as 44, living at Liskeard; he is shown as
married but from the index he does not appear to be living with any other
Hingstons - the only Julia Hingston in the 1871 census is living with her
grandparents, age 9 at St Ives - also there are Elizabeth M Hingston, age
36, married; Edward Hingston age 5 months; George B Hingston age 3 and
Richard Hingston age 7. Elizabeth is shown as born at St Ives, the children
all born at Liskeard. This is probably the same family but detailed records
need to be checked. Elizabeth Bryant <Elizabeth.Bryant@btopenworld.com>
who is descended from this family has supplied information about the children.
It seems that Richard was living in St Helier, Jersey, at least while his
children were at Bedford School (1885-7). In the 1881 census at 15
Clarendon Road, St Helier, Jersey, Elizabeth (an Annuitant) is head of
household, living with her five children, but not her husband. She
is, however, described as married, not widowed.
Child of Richard Hingston and Elizabeth Rosewall is:-
66. ANDREW HINGSTON was born 1821 (IGI)
at Liskeard, the son of 28. Richard Hingston and Ann Moon
and died 21 Oct 1897. He was a doctor. The IGI-AF records his wife as MARIANNE
DINGLEY; born 14 Apr 1825 at Sherborne, Dorset, the daughter of William
Dingley and Grace Pearse; she died 9 Sep 1897 at Liskeard (M.I. in Liskeard
cemetery says age 72 and spells her name as Marianne). Andrew and Marianne
married in July 1854 and had 5 children, all born at Liskeard (IGI-AF).
Hambly quotes only Richard. In the 1851 census Andrew was living with his
parents at Liskeard, but in the 1871 census (CFHS index) he is shown with
his wife Mary A, age 45, born Sherborne; da. Anne E, age 14; da. Mary A.
P., age 10. There is no sign of Richard in the 1871 census. The census
dates do not match the IGI-AF dates which are given below, so there is
still work to do on this family.

EDWARD HINGSTON was born 3 Nov 1870 at Liskeard. He attended Bedford School

March 1915 (at Lavantie) and is buried in Estaires Communal Cemetary, France.
His widow, Mrs A Hingston lived at "Polmerrick", Cobham in Kent (should
this be Surrey?). I don't have any records about any children.
ELIZABETH M HINGSTON, born 1874
The children of Andrew Hingston and Marianne Dingley are:-
83. ANDREW HOLLAND HINGSTON was born abt
1825 in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, the son of 29. Andrew
Hingston and Elizabeth Holland.; died 28 Jul 1899 in St George's Square,
Regents Park, London, England. He married firstly in 1861 in Liverpool,
ELIZA RICHARDSON DAVIES, who had been born abt 1835 in Liverpool; she died
in 1861 in Liverpool, probably during childbirth. He married, secondly
in 1864 in Cheltenham, Glos. AUGUSTA SOPHIA KNIGHT, who had been born 14
Mar 1840 in Cheltenham, Glos., the daughter of William Hill Knight (a well
known Architect) and Matilda Hastings.
CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH HINGSTON, born 1856 at Liskeard. It is believed
she married EDWARD GETHING BARBER, born 1859 in Ceylon, whose father William
Barber was a Methodist Minister (information from Alison Lawrence <email@example.com>)
68. RICHARD HINGSTON
ANNE HINGSTON, born 1861
MARMANT PEARSE HINGSTON, born 1862 (male)
MARIANNE HINGSTON, born 1864
Andrew did an apprenticeship  with a Daniel Pascoe, a chemist
of High Street Cheltenham. In 1851, he was living at the home of
Francis Christian [Chemists] of New Street Birmingham; his occupation was
given as Chemist's Assistant. He later moved to Liverpool.
The 1861 census states that Andrew's occupation was Chemist & Druggist.
By August 1875 he had moved to London and bankrupcy proceedings were
started against him. These proceedings took rather a long time as in April
1879 his father in law William Hill Knight took over the post ot Trustee.
For some reason [possibly because he was bankrupt] he sent two of his daughters
back to Cheltenham, Ada being brought up by his father in law William Hill
Knight and Elizabeth being brought up by his sister Martha Hingston. I
think there must have been some problem between him and William Hill Knight
as in the will of William Hill Knight the only grand children mentioned
were Ada Hingston and Augusta Emily Knight (his son's daughter).
By 1881 Andrew Holland Hingston had moved to London and ran a Boarding
House in Paddington. It must have been profitable as by 1891 he ran
two boarding houses in Kensington (his wife and son Alfred ran them; he
was described as a Retired Chemist.
Andrew's death certificate states that he was a Master Pharmaceutical
The child Andrew and Eliza was:
The children of Andrew and Augusta were:

Catchpole and Eliza Bale at the Friends Meeting House, Peckham. (HMK

Zealand in 1882 (or 1881?), arriving on the barquentine "Oxford". On 30
March 1891 Thomas was drowned while bathing at Maketu N.Z. aged 48

TREEBY 13 May 1833 in East Stonehouse (DFHS marriage index), daughter of
Richard Treeby and Susanna (Richard's mother was HONOR HINGSTON, who married
his father William Treby at Aveton Gifford on 16 May 1766 - I don't know
how she fits into the Hingston lines). Mary Ann was baptised in Aveton
Gifford 19 Jul 1809 but at the time of the wedding both were described
as being of the parish of East Stonehouse. East Stonehouse had many lodging
houses where not too many questions would be asked - did Andrew and Mary
Ann slip away quietly to get married? In the 1851
census the family were living and farming at Baileys, a farm in Bigbury
parish but only about a mile from his father at Ashford. All the children
were living with them except Honor who was at Ashford with her grandparents.

at Te Puke on 13th December 1955, aged 79 years and John Leonard Prele
Harris died at Te Puke on 31st August, 1962 aged 94 years.
The family seems to have been fairly prosperous but things seem to have
gone wrong for them in the early 1850s, when three generations of Andrews
died, the son, the father and the grandfather. The daughters married three
Coleman brothers and Henry went off on his travels. The farms were not
immediately sold but were let to tenants. In the 1861 census, Mary
Ann is living with her sister Eliza DINGLE (nee TREEBY) and her husband
at Smithson's House, Baileys, Bigbury.
Children of Andrew Hingston and Mary Treeby are:

were living at Liskeard but by the 1871 census Andrew had died and Elizabeth

- then a doctor herself. Her obituary appeared in the Psychiatric
Bulletin, 1989 13: 264. "The death of Dr C. Lamorna Hingston in January
at the age of 94 brings to an end a most remarkable career. Dr Hingston
was born on 26 August 1894, the daughter of a doctor. She was educated
at Cheltenham Ladies College. During the First World War she joined
the VAD and was seconded to the WMAAC. She was posted to France where she
served for no less than 4 years and was awarded the MBE (Military), an
exceptional decoration for a woman. After demobilisation she became resident
secretary at the Lady Chichestcr Hospital. Hove, Sussex to Dr Helen Boyle,
a distinguished psychiatrist and the first woman president in 1939 of the
Royal Medico-Psychological Association. Undoubtedly inspired by Helen
Boyle. Dr Hingston decided to study medicine and qualified MRCS.LRCP from
St Mary's Hospital, Paddington in 1930. She worked for a time in general
practice before specialising in psychiatry. For a time she worked as a
clinical assistant at the Maudsley and took the DPM in 1933.She was elected
a Foundation Fellow of the College in 1971. In 1937 she followed in Dr
Boyle's footsteps and was appointed visiting consultant to the Lady Chichester
Hospital and also the Royal Sussex County Hospital, the Royal Alexandra
Hospital for Children, and in 1938, to Southlands Hospital, Shoreham. As
an exhibition of her special interest in the emotional disturbance in children,
she was responsible for founding the Child Guidance Clinic at the Lady
Chichester Hospital, the first such clinic in Sussex, and, further, in
her appointment in 1942 to the staff of the East Sussex Child Guidance
clinics at Hove and Lewes. With the establishment of the NHS in 1948 she
was appointed a consultant and as such she served the various hospitals
in which she had previously worked on a voluntary basis. When she
had reached the age limit, in 1959, she retired from the NHS, although
she continued to work in private practice. In 1949 she founded the Brighton
and Hove branch of the League of the Hard of Hearing over which she presided
for many years. Dr Hingston was tireless in her service to the community
as witness her membership of a number of hospital management committees,
and her active interest in the local branch of the BMA, in addition to
which she gave assistance to lay organisations including the Board of Governors
of the Hove County Grammar School for Girls of which she became president."
Mr Andrew Hibbert-Hingston, nephew, added "She was a devoted daughter,
sister, and aunt, great- and great-greataunt.who took deep delight in her
family. This did not prevent her from being noted for her humorous or astringent
comments; she would puncture pomposity at once, though never unkindly.
She was always interested in other people and all generations talked to
her naturally and profited from the contact with so understanding a person.
Actual advice was never volunteered without being asked for - but practical
help often was, in many ways. It is plain from the sheer number of
bodies on which she served for so long, that her wisdom and humanity were
out of the ordinary, and in great demand. A devout Christian all her life,
she exemplified the ideal of service to others without ever a hintof becoming
even remotely priggish.
