Notes

Joseph Hinton bought the Crooked Billet (7 Horn Street) from the Mayne family in 1828. He doesn't appear to have lived in Winslow before then. It was sold in 1836, apparently to pay debts.

Susanna Hinton the niece married William Forster at Winslow in 1837, and Mary married Richard Lomath in 1838. Susanna senior was living with the Forsters in 1841. In 1851 she was described as pauper and butcher's widow, aged 68 and born at Renton, Devon. She died in 1853.
