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
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.
3 : Described as mercer and bequeathed lordship of the manor in his will
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.
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.
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).
24 : death from A & D
26 : A & D
30 : A & D
32 : In his father-in-law's will
