  • Notes 
    • Member of Parliament for Downton, 1621; Ludgershall, 1625 and 18 Mar 1626. Sheriff of Berkshire 1612-13.

      "Hinton's children developed close ties with Virginia: two sons emigrated there; and his daughter married Samuel Mathews, the colony's governor in the 1650s [note: incorrect; she married the governor's father, also Samuel Mathews]; while his eldest son, Anthony, belonged to the Virginia Company and may briefly have been a planter in Barbados. A fourth son, John, became physician to Henrietta Maria." [History of Parliament, citation details below]

      Called by Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers 1607-1635 (citation details below) "a member of Virginia's Council of State", citing Adventurers of Purse and Person (citation details below) which calls him "a Councillor of Virginia in 1634", but this would appear to reflect confusion between this Thomas Hinton and his son Thomas (1600-1658). No less a Virginia historian than Lyon Gardiner Tyler had this figured out in his 1915 Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography (citation details below).
