Hingston's at University

There are published lists of Alumni at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. The following entries have been extracted from them. Some of the abbreviations have been written out in full when I know what they mean! If anyone has access to similar records at other Universities, and can transcribe them, I will add them to this list. Since we know that several Hingstons were Doctors or Priests, records of their training should exist. They should also appear on various Directories, such as Crockfords.
