Henton/Hinton and Boone Families immigrants from England
Since there were several intermarriages between the Henton Family and the Boone family I have combined the information I have on both families on the same web site. The earliest Boone family member I have identified is George Boone (I) born circa 1616 in Exeter, Devon, England. George Boone (III), grandson of George (I) arrived in the Colonies in 1717 along with seven of his children and his sister Persis Boone. George Henton immigrated from England to Pennsylvania in the early around the same time as the Boone family. He married Persis Boone but it is unclear whether they married prior to immigrating to Pennsylvania or afterwards. Persis Boone was a Aunt to Edward Squire Boone the father of Daniel Boone the renown frontiersman. A son of George Henton and Persis, William Henton, eventually migrated to Rockingham Co., Virginia. He is the ancestor of our family line. Some of the family lines spell the surname as Hinton.
