Major Life Events

     George Henton was born circa 1680 in England.1 He married Persis Boone, daughter of George Boone [II] and Sarah Uppey, circa 1715. According to conflicting evidence, he married Persis Boone circa 1719.1 George died before 19 November 1747 in Oley, Berks Co., Pennsylvania.1

Children of George and Persis Boone

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 in 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.
