James may have been the son of the James sennex (senior) who was buried at Holbeton 20 Jan 1713. Allen & Dymond show him as the son of James b 1652, but the evidence for this is unknown and no mother or siblings are shown. No record of his birth has been traced.

Married 25 April 1734, Holbeton11

William Hingston:

Baptised 4 April 1709, Holbeton12

Buried 18 January 1781, Holbeton13

Although William would have stood to inherit substantially had the lines of his younger brothers Henry and John failed, William appears in his father's will mainly as a trustee. But note that by this time (1754) he was 45, married with a family, and it is likely that he had already received his portion. No will of William's own is known, and we know very little of him directly.

1 : surname is shown in A&D and matches marriage register. Both spellings of her Christian name appear in the registers.

2 : from Quaker meeting records - TWH and others

3 : Described as mercer and bequeathed lordship of the manor in his will

4 : "parish register (birth and baptism given)"

5 : parish register has 28 Feb 1704/5 'James Hingston son of James Hingston [shopkeeper?] and Ann his wife'

6 : parish register

7 : wife described as a widow in her father's will

8 : parish register 19 Feb 1707/8 'James Hingston son of James and Anne born'

9 : parish register 11 Jan 1709/10 'James Hngston [undecipherable, looks like 'inner' possibly 'junior'?]

10 : In the Holbeton parsh register she appears consistently as Amy (or Amey), but A & D (and the IGI) call her Mary. Either A & D's informant had simply misremembered, or Mary is the name by which she was known in the family. It may be significant that she called one of her daughters Mary, but not Amy.

11 : parish register

12 : parish register 4 Apr 1709 'William Hingston son of James and Anne, born'

13 : parish register 18 Jan 1781 'William Hingston the elder'

14 : Parish register 10 Oct 1783 'Amy Hingston'. This is almost certainly her burial record, as the only other Amy Hingston known at Holbeton at that period was a grand-daughter who is shown in A & D as marrying and raising a family.

20 : parish register 9 Jul 1713 'Andrew Hingston son of James and Ann, born'

21 : parish register 8 Nov 1748 'Andrew Hingston' The linking of this entry with the birth entry rests mainly on his absence from his father's will, and lack of any information elsewhere including Allen & Dymond.

22 : Kingsbridge Quarterly meeting register (there is no surname for Alice but her marriage to Samuel can be confirmed from her father's will, and is repeated in A&D).

23 : parish register 2 Jul 1714 'Alice Hingston daughter of James and Anne, born' The day and christian names are illegible on fiche but compatible with other transcriptions.
