Notes for Joseph Hinson and Elizabeth Hoyle

Joseph Hinson's father could be Robert Hanson, as shown here. No evidence is known, other than coincidence of residence and time. Another researcher has named George and Elinor Hanson as parents.

1679 Charles Hoyle's will, dated 10 April 1679, granted 900 acres in Stafford County, Virginia to daughter Elizabeth Hanson, proved in Stafford court on 9 September 1695. Inquiry about land ownership, dated 1728, mentions Elizabeth's son, Edmond Hanson.

Land in Stafford County, Virginia was assigned by John Rosier to Charles Wood (relation unknown, but perhaps related to Wood, father-in-law of brother Alexander) who gave it by will to Joseph Hinson of Stafford Co, who then sold the land to Thomas Elsey.

1689 On 9 December, Joseph Hinson won a lawsuit against John Peale-Stafford Co Va (source not seen).

1694 On 16 March, Joseph Hinson [Henson] had a grant of 391 acres in Stafford County, VA 391 acres beginning upon the cliff by the run side. Margaret Lady Culpepper and Thomas Lord Fairfax were named. (Northern Neck VA Grants, Book 2, p 140 reported in Genealogical Notes on the South Family, page 80 and Library of Virginia online images of land office grants).

1694 On 2 October, Joseph Hinson [Henson] had a grant of 195 acres in Stafford County upon the north side of the Main Run of Potomack Creek, beginning at the mouth of the Reedy Branch adjoining Theoderick Bland, and Thomas Meridith.
