bullet  General Notes:

Born in Pennsylvania. He emigrated to Rockingham County Virginia in 1768. Deed record below shows 1765.

In a Rockingham County Court Record, we find 'written evidence' that some litigation was being settled in 1779 by process of "Arbytration". Mr. John Hinton was named along with Josiah Davidson, George Boswell, and Leonard Herring, to serve as judges in 'arbytration' of lawsuits between "Williams vs. Faris"; and "Johnston vs. Bowyer"; and "Kyser vs. Vance". The award determined by the 'arbytration panel' was to be considered as the Judgement of the Court.

From "SETTLERS BY THE LONG GREY TRAIL", Page 271, among records of land transactions by Jeremiah and Catherine Harrison: "Also, on the 15th, October, 1765, for 276 Pounds, 10 shillings, Jeremiah and Catherine deeded the 400 acres on Linville's Creek purchased by John Harrison, Jr., in 1760, to 'John Hinton of County of Berks, Province Pennsylvania'. (See Deed Books; 9, pp. 129, 151, and 217; and 12 p.304.)
