I am sure somewere there will be a link between your Hinton's and mine.
It would appear that the Hintons around Bettisfield area, were very productive and re-used the same given names quite a lot between families.
I don't have a John b 1907, but do have a number of John's.
By any chance, is the father of John born 1815 a Richard Hinton born about 1793, Bettisfield (or that area) with a brother Charles born about 1781. If so Charles is my gt,gt,gt grandfather. So then there would be a link !!!
Feel free to keep in touch Regards John
