According to conflicting evidence, he married Persis Boone circa 1719.1

Major Life Events

     George Henton was born circa 1680 at England.1 He married Persis Boone, daughter of George Boone [II] and Sarah Uppey, circa 1715. George died before 19 November 1747 at Oley, Berks Co., Pennsylvania.1

Children of George and Persis:

Narrative

     Robert Hinton gives a marriage date of about 1719 for George and Persis. This would be before the estimated birth dates of sons George Jr. and William. Those birth dates leads this compiler to believe the marriage date may have been about 1715.

     The following information is from Henton notes provided by John Callarman.

     "The question of George Henton's parentage is unresolved. Dr. George Earle Henton did not speculate on his origins, other than to write: "My Henton ancestors all had their origins in England … Family tradition records definitely and in continuity throughout their lineal descendants that our initial American ancestor was George H. Henton, from Liverpool, England, where his family were merchants; that the maiden mame of his wife was Persis Boone, a relative of George Boone." Dr. Henton cited no sources.

     George W. Hinton says only, "He came from the south of England and obtained patent to land in Philadelphia County in 1720. His wife's name was Persis Boone, the daughter of George Boone and Sarah Uppery, which were born in Devonshire, England."

     Ralph H. Lane, Washington, D.C., in his "The Scothorn Family," published in 1955, a copy found in the Dallas, Texas, Public Library, suggests that George Henton may have been the son of Evan Henton of Chester County, Pennsylvania, the only reference to this Evan Henton that we have seen.

     Philip Dickinson, in "The Hinton Family in England and Virginia," published in 1914, a copy found in the Kentucky Historical Society Library, says a George Henton was the son of Capt. William and Elizabeth (Boeve) Henton, great-grandson of Sir Thomas Hinton, one of the original shareholders of the London Company for the settlement of Virginia, and later a partner of Sir Sebastian Harvey, Lord Mayor of London, in a colonial trade enterprise that made him the richest commoner of his day. Dickinson identifies George's siblings as Phillip, William (who died in Philadelphia in 1703), Gabriel (who married Catherine Potter), Mary Randall, Elizabeth and Deborah. Dickinson chronicles this Capt. William Henton's futile attempts to convince King George he should reward him for his service to the crown by giving him Newfoundland.

     If Dickinson's link of our George Henton to Capt. William Henton and his ancestors is accurate, we could probably claim kin to virtually all the Hintons in America. Unfortunately, Dickinson was another author who failed to realize the importance of citing his sources, so those who would not make a claim without proof currently have no proof on which to make a claim.

     Except for late recorded deeds, land records on file in the Berks County Courthouse in Reading, Pennsylvania, will refer to transactions taking place after March 11, 1752, when the county was formed from Philadelphia County. Compiler has not searched Philadelphia County for land records involving Henton, but has found the following references to late-filed deeds involving George Henton's land in Berks County records:

     Deed Book A-3, Page 301, November 7, 1729, George Boone, the elder, and Mary, his wife, sold to George Henton, yeoman, of Oley, Philadelphia County, 100 acres adjacent to David Evans, Benjamin Burdeen and George Boone for 40 pounds. Recorded 1763.

     Deed Book A-3, Page 307, George Henton, yeoman, of Amity Township, and Persis, his wife, sell 100 acres to Thomas Ellis for 110 pounds Recorded 1763.

     Deed Book B-3, Page 472, Nov. 9, 1731, George and Deborah Boone of county of Philadelphia and Nicolas and Abigail Scull sell 150 acres of land in Oley Township to George Henton, recorded December 22, 1778.

     Amity Township was the first township established (about 1719) in what was to become Berks County, from what was known as the Swede's Tracts, 10,500 acres in area, as surveyed by George Boone. A list of the taxables in Amity Township in 1734 shows George "Hinton" with 150 acres of land, according to Montgomery's "History of Berks County, Pa.," copied for compiler by Donnadeane (Depew) Reeme.

     Others among the 37 taxables listed that year were Mordecai Lincoln, Marcus Huling, Peter Jones, Andrew Jones, John Warren Jr., Jacob Warren, Joseph "Boon", James Thompson, Elijah DeHart, Simon DeHart, and Jonah Jones. This Jones family, records cited by Ralph H. Lane in "The Scothorn Family" indicate, were of Swedish descent. Two members of the Jones family married children of George and Persis Henton.

     On December 17, 1741, Exeter Township was formed from the south part of Oley Township, which had earlier been formed from Amity Township. Among the petitions to form Exeter Township, Montgomery notes, were James Boone, Benjamin Boone, John Boone, Francis Yarnall, Peter Yarnall, Michael "Waren" and Squire Boone.2

     George made a will at Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. George Henton's will was filed in Will Book E, Page 247, recorded November 19, 1747. John Callarman has a photocopy of the will, courtesy of Donnadeane (Depew) Reeme, and it reads, as best can be read from the handwriting of the recorder:
     "In the name of God, amen. I, George Henton of Exeter in the county of Philadelphia, being sick and weak of body but of sounded mind and memory, thanks be to God for the same. And calling to mind that it is for men once to die, I do make this my liast will and testament, hereby disanulling and making void all other wills and testaments by me heretofore made, either by …. Or in writing.

     "Impimis my mind and desire is that all my just debts be honestly paid.
     "Item: I give and bequeath unto my son George Henton and to his heirs and assigns forever all my houses, lands and goods & chattels, under those provisos and limitations following, viz. That he pay all my just debts. Secondly, that he pay unto his mother in lieu of her dowry the sum of ten pounds Pennsylvania money yearly during her natural life and after her decease to pay unto his brothers and sisters, viz., Thomas, John, Joseph, Robert, Catherine, Hannah, Alice, Persis or survivors of them the sum of one hundred pounds to be equally divided amongst them.
     "Item: I give unto my son William the sum of one English shilling.
     "Item: I give unto my daughter Ruth the sum of five shillings.
     "Item: I give unto my wife Persis the …. Bed and furniture.
     "I do hereby make my son George the whole and sole executor of this my last will and testament.
          "The mark of
          "George (H) Henton

     "Signed, sealed, published, pronounced and declared by the above named George Henton to be his last will and testament in the presence of us, the subscribers, the day and year above written.
          "George Boone
          "Israel Robeson
          "William Hughs"


     The text of the document was written in a hand with artistic scrolls and flourishes, matching the signature on the document of George Boone. Israel Robeson and William Hughs signed the document in different handwriting. "The mark of George Henton" is a feathery, shaky "H" written between the given name and the surname. The given name and surname were in the same handwriting as the document, presumably that of George Boone.

     An inventory of George Henton's estate, on file in Philadelphia County, was taken by Benjamin Boone and Michael Warren. It shows the estate to be valued at 517 pounds, 12 shillings."

     It is interesting to note that William and Ruth, both of whom married Swedish Jones siblings, received merely one and five shillings respectively from there father, George Henton's will, while oldest son George got everything else, minus 100 pounds divided equally among the other children, plus the payments required to Persis.

Children of William and Mary:

Narrative

     The following information is from notes on the Henton family provided by John Callarman. Compiler in the following refers to John Callarman.

     "Primary evidence establishing most of the children of William Henton comes from a court case transcribed in Lyman Chalkley's "Records of Augusta County," identified as Henton vs. Henton, O.S. 178, N.S. 63. The text, as published by Chalkley, reads:

     "Henton vs. Henton - O.S. 178; N.S. 63 - Complainants are, viz William and Evan Henton, and Jacob Laswell and Sarah, his wife, late Henton, say that William Henton, grandfather of orators, died in 1779 testate (will in Rockingham), devised land to son William and, after death of his wife, to son Thomas and daughters Mary and Rebecca.

     "Before his death, William had contracted to sell part of his land to Ingle Bowyer. After William died, George Henton and Ingle Bowyer entered a caveat in General Court.

     "William's heir at law was Joseph Henton, who removed to Kentucky in 1780 and was killed by Indians, leaving Thomas Henton, his oldest son and heir, an infant of tender years. Mary Henton, a devisee, died in May 1787 testate (will in Rockingham) and devised her estate to her brothers, Peter and Thomas. William Henton Jr. died testate (will in Rockingham) and devised his estate to orator and oratrix.

     "Thomas Henton is heir-at-law of Joseph Henton, who was heir-at-law of William Henton Sr. Rebecca Henton has married Joseph Grider and resides in Kentucky.

     "One James Henton and Asher Waterman have located a survey on the land, and Peter Henton, devisee of Mary, and also as purchaser from Ingle Bowyer.

     "Orators and oratrix are children of Evan Henton who went away from Virginia. Orator William lives in Kentucky.

     "Will of William Henton of Rockingham, blacksmith, dated 17th December, 1779. Recorded in Rockingham

     "Estate to be kept together until son Thomas arrives at age. Wife, Mary; sons William, Joseph, Evan, Peter; daughters Mary and Rebeckah; executors, wife and Michael Warren.

     "Will of Mary Henton of Rockingham, dated 13th May 1787. Mother, Mary Henton; sister Rebeckah; devisee brother Peter Henton, brother Thomas. Recorded in Rockingham.

     "Will of William Henton of Rockingham. Legatee Mary Cowan; legatee Henry Cowan; cousin Sarah Henton, daughter of brother Evin Henton; cousin, William and Evin Henton, sons of brother Evan Henton. Dated 1st October 1802. Recorded in Rockingham 21st June 1803.

     "Deed 1st August 1802. James Henton and Elizabeth, his wife, of Rockingham, to Asher Waterman, 117 acres on Smith's Creek, patented to James 1801. Recorded in Rockingham, December 1801.

     "Deed 31st July 1805. Asher Waterman and Sally to William Henton of Shelby County, Ky., conveys above. Recorded in Rockingham, September 1805.

     "Conveyance by Thomas Henton of Shelby County, Ky., to William Henton of same place. Tract on Smith's Creek decreed to Thomas's grandfather by the General Court, 12th September, 1804.

     "Power attorney by Jacob Gryder and Rebekah Gryder, formerly Henton, of Rockingham County, but now of Baron County, Kentucky, to friend and kinsman, William Henton, of Shelby County, Ky. Rebekah is daughter of William Henton, September 1804."

     Prior to the litigation of this lawsuit, John Warden of Richmond, Virginia, apparently an attorney hired by William Henton's grandson, William, of Shelby County, Kentucky, wrote the following document on August 17, 1803

     "William Henton, 1st, made his will on the 19th day of December 1779, which was proved 27th March 1780. At his death, he left a widow, Mary, to whom he gave his whole estate, during her life, and five sons and two daughters. Joseph was his oldest son. He survived the testator and died in the year 1780, leaving a widow and three children.

     "The will was proved by Engle Bower and George Henton, the latter of whom was a brother of the deceased and both being the subscribing witnesses, soon after, two wit in the same year, George Henton and Engle Bower entered a caveat with the register of the land office to prevent the issuing of a grant for certain lands, in the county of Rockingham, to any of the family of William 1st, on which caveat Joseph Henton, William 2nd Henton and Mary Henton, the widow, were defendants. The Court, by consent of the said parties, George on the one part and William 2 and Mary on the other part, decided that a grant should be made to the heir at law of the testator, on his complying with what the law requires, and paying twelve pounds with interest from 1st of April 1783, to George and also his costs.

     "Thomas is the name of the eldest son of Joseph, and is alive, but the will of William the first, having given certain mills, &c, to his son William 2nd, and certain disinheriting legacies to his sons, Joseph, Evan and Peter, declares his will to be "That after his wife's decease, the residue of his estate should be divided among his son, Thomas, and his daughters, Mary and Rebecka, Thomas to have two shares and Mary and Rebecka share and share alike.

     "Mary died of full age and made a will in which she devised part of her estate to Thomas, her brother. Thomas is still alive; but before the decease of William 2nd, assigned all his interest, arising out of the wills of his father and his sister, Mary, to his brother, William 2nd. William 2nd died in Feb. 1803, leaving neither wife nor child; but having made his testament and last will, wherein after some small legacies, he gives the residue of his estate, to be divided according to the directions of that will, among William, Evan, and Sarah, the children of his brother, Evan, who was then dead.

     "The lands in the caveat above mentioned continued in the possession of William the second until his death, and are now in possession of William, the son of Evan, as a devisee of William, the second, though son (James) of George, the original caveator, has located the same, has surveyed them, and obtained a grant for them as containing 117 acres, which is dated in March 1801, the survey originally caveated to him being only 100 acres.

     "On this statement I am requested to point out the measures which ought to be pursued by William, the son of Evan, in order to his obtaining possession of the land contained in the original survey made by his grandfather, and caveated aforesaid, and in order to his establishing the rights of the devises of his Uncle William therein. The judgment of the General Court seems to establish two things, First that the right to a grant during the joint lives of William Henton, 1st, and his brother George, the witness to his will, the former caveator, and the present grantee, was in William, grandfather of the present possessor, who was also the testator first above named, and that in obtaining the right he had received assistance from the said George, in money for the amount of twelve pounds.

     "It seems also that the will first above mentioned, was not before the Court and that all the parties knew the right to a grant was in none of them independently on that will, which as appears to me, none of them had considered as affecting the case. Had there been no will, it appears to me, that the judgment of the General Court would have been correct, and in that case, Thomas, the son of Joseph, was the son of William Henton 1st, deceased, mentioned in the judgment (who was the original testator) was the only person to whom a grant could be issued in consequence of that judgment, for he, Thomas, and he only is the heir at law of William therein mentioned, through Joseph, and therefore, I do suppose, that the Register is authorized by that judgment to issue a grant to no other than him; and primogentive give a right to inheritance at all times between the first settlement of (two or three words unreadable in taped fold) 1st day of Jan. 1787.

     "Besides this, I know that anterior to the said first day of January, a man could not devise land whereof he was not possessed, but in the present case, I think that this principle had no influence as the Testator, though without a patent, will, in my opinion, be considered as entitled to convey his interest, his location and survey being considered, as if he had possession and I think that these lands did pass by the words in his will 'all the residue of my estate.'

     "If I am right in this, Thomas, the son, and Mary and Rebecka, the daughter, are entitled to a grant to the land in question, notwithstanding the judgment, originally there were no parties to the caveat but the complainants, George Henton and Engle Bower, and William Henton 2nd, and Joseph Henton, Joseph whose title to a grant was affirmed by the General Court, being dead, and his son no party at the time of the judgment, but Mary, the widow of William, the first, having been introduced, tho the reason of her introduction is not easily discerned, Thomas certainly cannot be bound by the judgment, as he was not a party and in all probability was an infant at the date thereof and Mary and Rebecka, the daughters, could not be bound thereby for the first and perhaps also for the second cause.

     "Being of the opinion from these circumstances that the will never was before the Court, and that the interest of those claiming under it, never has come regularly in question, and also that it has properly conveyed the right to a grant, I consider the rights arising out of it to be a right in Thomas to two-thirds and a right in Mary and Rebecka to one third thereof between them, that is 2/3 and 1/3 and 1/3 equals 1.

     "Such being my opinion, I would advise Mr. William Henton 3rd, the son of Evan and devisee of William, the second, to procure a copy of the will of his Aunt Mary, and a copy of the will of his Uncle William, and a confirmation from his Uncle Thomas of the assignment from him to William for that assignments with the power of attorney to conduct the business in his name; but for the uses of the will of William, and then to bring a suit in chancery in the names of Thomas, and Rebecka, stating their rights, and praying that the grant to James, son of George, might be set aside and then rights under the will be established. The defendants in that suit must be Thomas, the son of Joseph, and James, the patentee, and it must be brought to Staunton.

     "I would also advise that all the papers in the Land Office on the original survey and caveat, beginning with the warrant, and also the like papers leading to the grant to James, may be procured with a copy of the grant itself.

     "I think if the twelve pounds with interest and costs were paid to George, it ought to be proved.

     "I wish much to see the record in the General Court on the first Caveat. The suit must go against Thomas, though a non resident. (Here I mean Thomas, the son of Joseph.)

          "John Warden
          "Richmond, A.
          "17th August 1803."

     It is interesting to note in the discussion of Henton vs. Henton, that William Henton also made "certain disinheriting legacies to his sons, Joseph, Evan and Peter."

     Compiler found a typed copy of this document in a folder marked "Henton" in the files of the Kentucky Historical Society Library in Frankfort. It had been typed by Nancy Wells on Sept. 24, 1925. Nancy Wells reported the document was in the possession of Miss Sallie Henton, a granddaughter of William Henton (the third) and son of Evan, son of William.

     On March 27, 1780, "The last will and testament of William 'Hinton' was proved by Engle Bowyer and George Hinton, two of the wintesses," according to the Rockingham County Minute Book transcribed by Constance A. and Louise C. Levinson. "Mary, the widow, and Michael 'Waren,' the executors therein named, entered into bond with security and having made oath according to law, certificate is granted them."

     Two children of William and Mary (Jones) Henton not named in the Henton Vs. Henton lawsuit are Elizabeth Henton and Persis Henton. Records of St. Gabriel's Church, Molattan, Pennsylvania, show that on September 8, 1753, two children of William of William and Mary "Hinten," were baptised. They were William "Hinten," born September 26, 1750, and Elizabeth "Hinten," born March 25, 1753. "Perses" Henton is found in the will of Elizabeth Jones Bell, dated ---- 31, 1769, with letters of testimoney granted to Mounce Jones. Among the bequests in the will of Mary (Jones) Henton's mother are"Item. I give and bequeath unto my daughter, Mary Henton, in cash 10 pounds … Item. I do also give and bequeath unto my daughter Mary Henton my blue gown … Item. I do also give and bequeath unto my granddaughter, Perses Henton, daughter of my daughter, Mary Henton, one pewter quart tea pott and iron griddle."

     We find no further documentation for Elizabeth or Persis, indicating the may have died young … unless the following refers to this Persis Henton

     The Rockingham County Minute Book, 1778-1792, transcribed by Constance A. Levinson and Louise C. Levinson, reports that on May 26, 1783, a Rockingham County Grand Jury "returned into court and made the following presentments… Pierey Henton for having a baseborn child." Eleven other women, including Elenor "Nedom," were also named for the same "presentment" on that date. We do not know which Persis/Pierey Henton is so involved.

     Compiler shows this notation under George Henton, who also had a daughter named Persis, Peasee or however the handwriting readers interpreted it. The 1810 census record for Abraham Phillips, shown under Persis Henton, tilts toward George's daughter.

     William Henton had served on juries in Rockingham County as late as March 23, 1779, (with Michael 'Wearing,' among others, the Rockingham County Minute Book reports.

     On May 22, 1780, the inventory of William's estate was returned and recorded. On September 23, 1783, it was ordered that "John Thomas, Josiah Davison, and Reuben More be commissioned to see the laying out of a seven-acre tract of land agreeable to the will of Wm. Henton, deceased, for Wm. Henton, Jr. for a mill seat and to make report to the next court.

     The will came up twice on April 26, 1784, when it was ordered "that Reuben Harrison and Wm. Dunlap settle with Michael 'Warin' and Mary Henton, executors of the estate of Wm. Henton, deceased, and make return to this court of the same," and that a "Deed of lease and release from Michael 'Warin' and Mary Henton, executor and executrix of the estate of Wm. Henton, deceased, to Wm. Henton, Jr., was acknowledged by Michael 'Warin' and ordered certified.

     On May 25, 1784, "Reuben Harrison and Wm. Dunlap, Gent., being appointed by a former court to adjust and settle the accounts of the estate of William Henton, deceased, returned the same and ordered recorded." A similar entry had been made the day before, but was lined out, the Levinsons reported.

     On June 28, 1784, "On the motion of Michael 'Waren' on behalf of Mary Henton, ordered that she be allowed to open a road from the house of the late Wm. Henton, deceased, over the mill road to a field she has beyond the mill. Ordered also that John Bright and John Harrison do view the same and mark the most convenient way the least prejudicial to Wm. Henton, son of the deceased, and make a report thereof.

     "In 1782 …," Lane writes, "the widow Henton, William Henton and Peter Henton (grouped as a family) paid taxes; and Mary, widow, owned 70 acres, nine of which she conveyed to William and continued paying taxes on the remaing 63 acres through 1803."

     Lane notes that in 1807, Peter Henton was paying taxes on this 63 acres plus 400 more on Smith's Creek, where Joseph Scothorn, Sr., had owned land. Some of this land later came into the possession of B. Frank Armentrout, who married a descendant of Peter, and the location of his property on an 1874 map of Rockingham County shows us where this branch of the Henton family lived.

Some Internet genealogists have identified her as Alice Ann Henton, giving her the only middle name in this entire family unit; others have assigned a daughter, Ann Henton, to George and Persis. A paper by an otherwise unidentified person named E.F.J. Tafe that came into the hands of compiler's (John Callarman) uncle, Glenn Callarman in the mid 1960's. alluded to a 12th child, Ann Henton. Donnadeane (Depew) Reeme suggested this may have been a reference to Ann Henton, whom Reeme believes was a daughter of George, son of George.2

Relationship6th great-grandmother of Paul Edward Lawrence
ChartsMaternal Ancestors

Major Life Events

     Elizabeth married first Peter Jones, son of Mounce Jonasson and Ingabor Jestenberg?, circa 1715.1 Elizabeth married second Henry Bell after 1739.2 Elizabeth died before 29 April 1771.

Narrative

     Notes from John Callarman indicates the following:

     "In the Philadelphia County will of Peter Jones, Elizabeth's first husband, dated June 27, 1739, with letters of testimony granted to Jonas Jones August 25, 1739, there is this sentence"I do order my brother, Marcus Huling and my brother Jonas Jones to be my executors." The word "brother" often refered to "brother-in-law" in 18th century legalize, giving rise to speculation that Elizabeth may have been a Huling."

     "A paper prepared by Dr. Peter S. Craig, F.A.S.G., 3406 Macomb St. NW, Washington DC 20016-3160, and sent to compiler in 2002 by a descendant of Peter and Ruth Jones, shows that Marcus Huling was Peter Jones' brother-in-law, but not because Peter's wife, Elizabeth, was a Huling

     "Peter Jones was born in 1693 and must have married about 1714 or 1715, as his eldest son (Peter Jones, Jr.) was born about 1715. In my opinion, he was married by Andreas Sandel, pastor of Gloria Dei Church, who (at that time) also served members of the church living in Amity Township. Unfortunately, however, the marriage records of Gloria Dei for the years 1701-1750 disappeared sometime during the 1830s. They were still in the possession of Pastor Nils Colin when he died, but were 'lost' soon thereafter.

     "Some have suggested that Peter's wife Elizabeth was the daughter of Marcus Huling, because Peters Jones, in his will, named his 'brothers' Jonas Jones and Marcus Huling as executors. See Ralph H. Lane, 'The Scothorn Family,' p. 109. This is erroneous, however, because Marcus Huling did not marry until about 1709. Marcus Huling was called a 'brother' in the will because he was a brother-in-law - Marcus Huling had married Peter Jones' sister, Margaret.

     "Two other Swedish families in Amity Township at the time must be ruled out - the Yocums and the Robesons. Neither one had a daughter named Elizabeth. However, a third Swedish family, that of Andrew and Anna Lycon, may have had a daughter named Elizabeth. Andrew Lycon was the son of Peter Nilsson Lycon. I note that Peter and Elizabeth Jones named their second son Mounce (after Peter's father). Might the first son have been named Peter, at least in part, after Elizabeth's grandfather? If so, Marcus Huling would be not only Peter's brother-in-law, but also his wife, Elizabeth's first cousin, as follows:

          "First Generation Jonas Nilsson and Peter Nilsson Lycon.
          "Second Generation Mounce Jones married Ingborg Lycon; Andrew Lycon married Anna.
          "Third Generattion Margaret Jones married Marcus Huling; Peter Jones married Elizabeth Lycon (?).

     "If this speculation is true, Margaret Jones (wife of Marcus Huling) was not only Peter's sister but also the first cousin of Peter's wife Elizabeth, making the 'brother' designation in the will even more forceful."

     Elizabeth made a will on 31 August 1769 at Amity Township, Berks Co., Pennsylvania. The will of Elizabeth Jones:

     "In the Name of God Amen this Thirty-First Day of August in The Year of our Lord 1769 I Elizabeth Bell in The Township of Amity in the County of Berks in the Province of Pennsylvania Widow, being very sick and weak in Body, but of perfect Mind and Memory, Thanks be given unto God Therefore, calling unto Mind the Mortality of my Body, and knowing that it is appointed for all Men once to dye, do make and ordain this my Last Will and Testament. That is to day principally and first of all, I give and recommend my Soul into the Hands of God that gave it; and for my Body, I recommend to this Earth, to be buried in a Christian like and decent manner; at the discretion of my Executors nothing doubting but at The General Resurrection I shall receive the same again by the might Power of God. And as touching such worldly Estate where with it hath pleased God to bless me in this Life, I give, devise and dispose of the same in the following manner and form.
     Imprimis ..It is my Will and I do Order; That in the first place all my just debts and funeral charges be paid and satisfied.

Children of Evan and Mary:

Narrative

     Excerpts from notes on Evan Henton3 provided by John Callarman are repeated here with Mr. Callarman's permission.

     From John Callarman notes: "John W. Wayland, in "A History of Rockingham County, Virginia," page 608, quoted by Mary D. Atkinson, reports that "Hentons were on both sides of the Rockingham-Shenandoah line in the Virginia Censuses of 1783, 1784, 1785. Of this family, Evan Henton joined Capt. James Harrod's company of about 30 men, 1774, and helped lay off Harrodstown (now Harrodsburg, first town in Kentucky. A lot was assigned to Henton and an adjoining one to Daniel Boone. Upon one or both of these lots was built a double log cabin, 'known indiscriminately as Boone's or Hinton's cabin' until burnt by the Indians, 1777.
     "Evan Henton was one of the first settlers of Shelby County, Kentucky, and another Henton - William Henton - was one of several children claimed to be the first white male child born in Kentucky."
     Compiler (John Callarman) has photographed the granite monument that sits not far from downtown Harrodsburg, Kentucky, that marks the site where Evan Henton shared a cabin with Daniel Boone. The stone reads:
     "Boone Cabin Site.
     "In 1774 on this site, Daniel Boone and Evan Hinton built a double log cabin. This cabin was occupied by Boone on his visits here and was burned by the Shawnee Indians March 1, 1777. Daniel Boone assisted James Harrod and his men in laying off Harrodstown."

     Further information from John Callarman's notes on Evan Henton: A history of Kentucky, compiled by Lewis Collins, on pages 709-800, in a chapter of Shelby County, writes of Squire Boone's station: "The first station established within the bounds of what is now Shelby County was in the fall of 1779, and what Squire Boone, in a deposition taken Oct. 30, 1797, referred to as 'his station at the Painted Stone.' Besides his own family, the following men, with the families of some of them, were dwellers there: In 1779, Evan Hinton and Peter Paul; and in June 1780, if not earlier, Alex. Bryant, John Buckles, Richard Cates, Chas. Doleman, John and Jos. Eastwood, Jere. Harris, John Hinton, Abraham Holt, Morgan Hughes, John McFadden, John Nichols, John Stapleton, Robert Tyler, Sen., Abraham Vanmeter, James Wright, Adam, Jacob and Peter Wickersham and George Yunt."

     Concerning the death of Evan Henton, John Callarman provides the following: Nelle (Henton) Edwards wrote that the following account of how Evan died was taken from George Holeman's Military History:
     "Though Major George Rogers Clark commanded the troops, the organization was known as Harrod's Company. About the spring of 1779, the Indians ceased their hostilities, and on February 11, 1781, a wagoner by the name of Evan Hinton was sent from the Block House at Louisville to Boone's old station for provisions, and a lot of empty barrels to be used for salting down meat for the troops.
     "George Holeman, age 18, and Richard LaRue, age 19, were sent as guards to protect the wagon from the Indians who lurked along the road. Evan Henton drove the wagon, and LaRue walked a few paces ahead and Holeman the same distance behind. As they ascended a hill about eight miles from Louisville, Henton heard someone say, 'Whoa.' He stopped the horses, and the notorious Simon Girty, with thirteen Indians, demanded surrender or forfeit of life. The little band was outnumbered so, of course, surrendered.
     "The wagon and contents were left by the roadside, but the horses and the prisoners, under direction of their captors, made a hasty dash for the Ohio River, crossed, and went to Camp Waupacanatta, Ohio. Here, each prisoner had to 'run the gauntlet' and each made a hairbreadth escape.
     "At night, the three prisoners were tied together for safety. Henton, who was desperate to see his wife and children, loosed himself and escaped, only to be recaptured and meet death by means of the stake. The scalp of Henton was threateningly exhibited to Holeman and LaRue with assurance that they would meet the fate of their red-headed friend if they attempted to escape.
     "Holeman was adopted as a son and LaRue as a brother of the Indians. They later escaped. Holeman served with General Clark in 1786 or '87. He married Elizabeth Fisher of Louisville and moved to Woodford County, Kentucky."

     John Callarman also provides the following: "In February 2006, Jim Sellars, a historian specializing in Yankee prisoners sent from the American colonies to Canada, found documentation that Evan Henton was among the prisoners sent from the Indian camp in Ohio to Detroit and then to Montreal, because he knew some of the plans of the troops at Louisville and, compiler (John Callarman) speculates, had been convinced that the only way he could get back to Mary was to cooperate with the Redcoats."

     Further detail information on Evan Henton can be found in A History of Rockingham County, Virginia, by John W. Wayland and Old Settlers, by Sanford C. Cox. John Callarman and Robert A. Hinton also are excellant sources for Henton/Hinton family information.

     His will was probated on 4 February 1783 at Jefferson Co., Kentucky. From John Callarman notes:3 From the papers Nancy Wells supplied to the Kentucky Historical Society Library:
     "At a court held for Jefferson County on the 4th February, 1783, administration of the estate of Evan Henton, deceased, was granted to Mary Henton, his widow, who entered into Bond agreeable to law in that case made and provided."
     On Volume 3, page 179 of the Filson Club Quarterly, David Lee Callarman found:
     "A just & true Inventory & appraisement of the goods, and chattels to us produced by the administrator of the estate of Evan Hinton, deceased, taken at Clark's Station in Lincoln County, by us, the underwritten subscribers, being appointed appraisers (Page 63) by order of the Court of Jefferson County, and duly sworn May 24th, 1783.
     "1 Dutch oven 30 shillings, 1 pot 24 shillings, 1 frying pan 6 shillings, total 3 pounds; two puter basins 15 shillings, 3 Do plates and 4 spoons, 15 shillings, total 1 pound, 10 shillings; 1 puter tankard 3 shillings, wheel irons & buckett 4 shillings, total 7 shillings; 1 old bed quilt and Blankett, total 10 shillings; 1 Bed Bolster & pillow, total 2 pounds, 10 shillings; 1 pepper box & fork, 2 shillings, 1 hand saw 12 shillings, total 14 shillings; 1 Certificate from the Commissioners, total 4 pounds 5 shillings; 1 cow & calf 50 shillings, 1 testament 6 shillings, total 2 pounds 16 shillings; and A Large Smith's Vice, total 2 pounds, 10 shillings. Overall total 18 pounds, 2 shillings."
     Two more papers copied by Nancy Wells from the originals in the possession of Miss Sallie Henton in 1926 pertain to the estate sale.
     The first, dated June ye 12th, 1784, reads: "The articles of this sale is such that the highest bider is to be ye buyer. All articles under ten shillings is to be ready money. All above, three months credit with approved security. All buyers not being able to give sufficient security shall pay 5 of 6 t on Demand or goods return to the cryer."
     The sale bill, dated June 14th, 1784, discloses that Mary Henton bought all but three items, the Dutch oven for 15 shillings, the pott for 10 shillings, the testament for 3 shillings, 2 pence; the two pewter plates for 8 shillings, 6 pence; a pewter "kam", 4 spoons & forks for 3 shillings; a feather bed for 1 pound, 4 shillings; a blanket & bed quilt for 5 shillings; and piggins wheel iron & knife for 7 shillings. Jno. Kelley bought 4 pewter plates for 5 shillings, 6 pence; and Jas. Huse bought a frying pan for 2 pounds and one vice tone hand saw for 7 shillings, 6 pence.

Hinton, Martin Gryder, John Gryder. -- Augusta Sec. -- This day David Harned and John Woens, before me, that on Wednesday, the 13th of this instant, William Hinton came to the house of the said David Harned, with an armed force, and declared himself in the favor of the Crown of Great Britain and that General Howe might as well go home with his men, for he could raise men enough to subject the country and that he would do it yet; and also inquired for Captain Hite and Joseph Smith, and swore that if he could catch them, he would strip them and tie them to an apple tree and whip them until they would be willing to enlist into his service and swear to be true to him; and spoke very disrespectful of General Washington and of his troops in general. That the country belonged to the King and the King would keep it yet, and that he would go as Captain and raise better men than the country could; and that the above conversation was repeated sundry times, and further these deponents saith not as witness our hands this 16th day of August, 1777. (Signed) David Harned, John Owens. Sworn before me, Daniel Smith.

     "Sir-- I have received information by the deposition of David Harned, etc., that a certain William Hinton has openly appeared in defense of George the Third, King of Great Britain, and in open violation against the United States of America, and has enlisted men in behalf of the King of Great Britain. These are therefore to request you, in the name of the Commonwealth, to raise any number of volunteers or as many as you will think necessary, without the loss of time. You are to march your men to Smith's to apprehend the said William Hinton and all his abettors and all those concerned in behalf of the said King and in violation against the Commonwealth. You are to bring them to Staunton and have them secured under a proper guard until proper proceedings can be had on them, and I expect they will receiver their proper reward of their deserts. You are to be reinforced by Capt. David Bell, Thomas Hewit, Capt. William Anderson, Captain Hopkins and Capt. Daniel Smith. Herein fail not. Given under my hand this 19th August, 1777. (Signed) Abraham Smith. To Capt. Patrick Buckhanon. Endorsed "By virtue of the within order, I have taken Martin Groeder and Henry Groeder, and John Groeder, William Hinton, Peter Hinton, and Elisha Nox, and brought them before Sampson Mathews, William Bowyer and Alexander St. Clair.
     (Signed) Patrick Buchanan. August 21, 1777.

     "Augusta County, Sec. -- To the sheriff or gaolor of the County … We send you herewith the bodies of William Hinton, Martin Groeder and John Groeder, taken and brought … by warrant … of Abraham Smith, Esq., County Lieutenant, upon information made upon oath before Daniel Smith, Esq;, by David Hernot and John Owens of being guilty of a breach or coming under the Act of Assembly made in this state for punishing certain offenses and after learning sundry evidences, vis… we wer of the opinion that said William Hinton, Jr., Martin Groeder and John Groeder have been guilty of a breach of the Act aforesaid. You are therefore required to receive them … until they shal from thence be discharged by order of the Justices of our said Court to be held on the Third Tuesday in September next, and this shall be your warrant. Given under our hands and seals this 23rd day of August, 1777. (Signed) Sampson Mathews (seal), William Bowyer (seal), Alexander Sinclair (Seal).

     "Spa for witnesses for defence, viz… Verdict of guilty vs. William Hinton, fined 400 pounds and four years' imprisonment.

     "On back of the papers is an abstract of the evidence in handwriting of the clerk, evidently jotted down for his own amusement

     "Joseph Smith -- reputed Tory and drinking the king's health. Capt. Hite intended to take him and desired Smith to go with him. Went to Hinton's mill. Found and seized him. Resisted. Got away. Stoned them. called to them and told them, you will all be hanged yet. Followed them. With stones. Two recruits. Offered them ye money (?) and would not go with d---- scoundrel. Willing to go before. Several suspected Tories. Johnson, whom Hinton called out to assist him and damned him for not complying with his sworn word. A barbecue that night when open war was to be declared.

     "Arnet, Owens and Alderson. -- Hinton followed Hite and Smith. Where the d-----d Tory Catchers. If here I would tie to apple tree and whip them till I made them enlist in my service. I am Tory. The King has a right to the country and shall have it. Have no occasion to come here, for I can raise men enough to take the country and I will do it, for I am Captain of better men than they. Whipped two of their officers today and served them in ye same manner as how did Washington. See Howe drive them as stray sheep.

     "Mrs. Scothern -- Had sworn two into his service. Who are they? Phillips and Williams, who had before entered into our service. (Proved by Alderson).

     "Bright -- Damned him for giving information to take up Tories and turned his pistol towards him.

     "Burgess -- Last fall heard him declare himself a King's man, and that the King had a right to the country. Heard some good news. What it was -- Howe driving General Washington through the Jersey. Do you call that good news? Yes."

     Chalkely cited Augusta County Order Book No. XVI, dated September 18, 1777, "(237) William Hinton, same, 400 pounds and four years' imprisonment."

Major Life Events

     Peter Henton was born circa 1762 at Berks Co., Pennsylvania.1,2 He married Mary Scothorn, daughter of Joseph Scothorn and Elizabeth Brown, on 7 January 1788 at Rockingham Co., Virginia.1 Peter died before 13 June 1811 at Rockingham Co., Virginia.2

Children of Peter and Mary:

Narrative

     The children of Peter Henton and Mary Polly Scothorn are reported as heirs in a Land Grant. The text of that Land Grant is transcribed as follows:

To: John Henton & Others, 29 Acres, Rockingham County

"Wilson Cary Nicholas Esq., Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia: To all to whom these presents shall come, greeting: know ye, that in conformity with a survey, made the 26th of November, 1813, by virtue of a Land Office Treasury warrant, issued the 13th of June, 1811; No. 4752; there is granted by this said Commonwealth, unto John Henton, Evan Henton, Thomas Henton, Peter Henton, Joseph Henton, William Henton, Phoebe Henton, Jesse Henton, David Henton, and Moses Henton, heirs of Peter Henton, deceased, a certain tract or parcel of land, containing 29 acres, situate in the County of Rockingham, and bounded as followeth, to wit: Beginning at a black oak stump, near a white walnut, corner to John Harrison's 70 acre tract of patented land thence with lines thereof, north forty eight degrees west, one hundred and forty poles to a stake, near the house in which the said Peter Henton, deceased, formerly lived, north fifty degrees, east thirty eight poles to a stake in Stovers line, thence with his lines south fifty one degrees west, fifty six poles to a stake by a stump, claimed by Stover as a corner of his land, north fifty one degrees west , sixteen poles to a fallen pine; south fifty seven degrees west, thirty poles to a black oak on Stover's line; thence with lines of James Henton's survey; south fifty one degrees east, ninety two poles to a small hickory; south eighty three degrees east, sixty poles to stake in a field; south fifty three degrees east twenty six poles to a black oak log, by where two hickories formerly stood; and thence south fifty degrees east, twelve poles to the beginning with its appurtenances: To have and to hold, the said tract or parcel of land, with its appurtenances, to the said John Henton, Evan Henton, Thomas Henton, Peter Henton, Joseph Henton, William Henton, Phoebe Henton, Jesse Henton, David Henton, and Moses Henton, heirs of Peter Henton, deceased, and their heirs forever. In witness whereof, the said Wilson Cary Nicholas, Esquire, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia hath hereunto set his hand and causes the lesser seal of the said Commonwealth to be affixed at Richmond, on the tenth day of April, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and fifteen, and of the Commonwealth the thirty ninth. (Signed:) W. C. Nicholas"

     Until proven otherwise, we will presume that Peter Henton and Mary Polly Scothorn had 10 children - in the same order of birth, as their names are shown in this Land Grant document.

     According to the Huffman research ("The Ups and Downs of a Confederate Soldier)", Peter Hinton purchased his first land in Rockingham County in 1804. He lived with his mother before he purchased this property. Quoting from Huffman: "These early Rockingham Hintons were staunch Baptists. I found them of record in early Baptist records. John Alderson, prominent Baptist clergyman, appears frequently on their legal papers and they intermarried with Baptist families of the section. John Alderson's first church was on Linville Creek (then Augusta County) and they also owned lands on that creek and were communicants of his church. There was also a Baptist Colony and a Baptist Church on Smith Creek in Rockingham County to which Peter Hinton no doubt belonged."

     From Monroe Co. (WVA) Deed Book 1 (1799-1805): ITEM Entry 343-44: 15 Oct 1803; Thomas HINTON and wife Sarah HINTON to Peter HINTON of Rockingham Co Va, 145 acres for six shillings on Indian Draft/Indian Creek adj Valentine COOK and William MADDY.

     From Monroe Co. (WVA) Deed Book 1 (1799-1805): ITEM Entry 344-45: 15 Oct 1803; Thomas HINTON and wife Sarah HINTON to Peter HINTON of Rockingham Co Va, 39 acres for six shillings on Indian Draft/Indian Creek adj Samuel ALLEN and Daniel SHEPHERD.

     These land records show that Thomas Hinton, brother of Peter Hinton, was likely a resident of Monroe County, prior to 1803 (in fact, some of the records which have been attributed to Thomas, son of Peter, may have been Thomas, brother of Peter!?).

     Record from Monroe Co (WVA) Deed Book B (1805-1809): 341-42 : 1806 Jacob COOK and wife Isabella COOK of Monroe Co. to Peter HINTON of Rockingham Co Va 36 acres for $1.00 on Indian Creek on the Indian Draft adj FISHER and said HINTON.

     A Rockingham County "Fee Book" contained the following entry: "26 Nov 1813 Heirs of Peter HENTON dec'd. John HENTON, Evan HENTON, Thomas HENTON, Peter HENTON, Jesse HENTON, David HENTON, Moses HENTON regarding 20 acres of land, part of 1000a warranted to Alex. HERRING on Smiths Creek 13 Jun 1811." This record indicates that Peter Henton had seven living (male) heirs in Nov, 1813 (the only son not mentioned was Joseph?).

From "The James David Hinton Family Website" - May 2002:

     "Have we discovered a familial link between Peter Henton and "Rockingham John" Hinton? Cousin John Callarman has contributed the following legal records, from his Rockingham County research files:

     "Actually, I think Rockingham John's birthdate probably should be 1782, though Peter and Mary Scothorn did not marry until 1788. (Some Henton sources have shown that marriage as 1780.) But I think the explanation lies on Page 239 (27 November 1782) of the Rockingham County Minute Book, 1778-1792, transcribed by Constance A. Levinson and Louise C. Levinson, that reports:

     ""Know all men by these presents that we, Peter Hinton, Brewer Reeves, John Armentrout, Ingle Bowyer, Nathaniel Harrison and Gideon Harrison, do owe and acknowledge themselves to stand justly indebted unto Benjamin Harrison, Esqr., Governor of the State of Virginia, in the full sum of one hundred pounds that is fifty pounds by the said Peter Hinton and the other sum of ten pounds by said securities each to be paid unto the said Governor or his successors in office. Now if the said Peter Hinton shall endemnify and hereafter keep harmless the Parish of Rockingham in respect of a base born child begotten by the said Peter Hinton on the body of Eleanor Needham, then the above obligation to be void, else to stand and remain in full force and effect. Acknowledged in the presence of the court.""

     From other records of Rockingham County, we suspect that 100 pounds was a 'princely sum' in 1782 (perhaps not quite a King's Ransom - but a princely sum, none-the-less). For example, from "The Mills of Rockingham County", we have an appraisal of William Henton's Mill at 75 pounds (records indicate that this William Henton was a brother of Peter Henton).

     At this time, we do not know whether the 'out-of-wedlock' child was a boy or a girl. But a reasonable 'working hypothesis', is that the child of Peter Henton and Eleanor Needham was none other than "Rockingham John" Hinton.1 "
