DEATH: Will probated Fairfield Co, CT
Inventory taken 7 Dec 1681.
Both documents in Conn. State Library, Hartford.

OCCUPATION: Chosen packer for 9 successive years, from 1668 to 1675, for the town of Stratford. Wilcoxson (1939).  Packers were responsible for packing and salting fish for shipment overseas.

SUGGESTED_RESEARCH: Sgt. Edward was the sire of 60 grandchildren (!),though he could have known only one: 4-year-old Hannah Roberts. The rest were born after his death. Yet the naming tradition must have been very strong in that family because not one of those 60 grandchildren had a Norman English name, such as Francis, William, Robert, or Henry. They were all Bible names. Five of Edward's children named a child for themselves. Three were named Samuel.  Two were named Edward.
            
I don't believe this naming convention started here in America. It was continued from England, and we should
therefore look for English parishes where Bible names predominated for Hinman families. Two such parishes are Burnsall in Yorkshire and North Luffenham in Rutland.  They have numerous Hinmans with Biblical names.

For example, from the parish records of Burnsall, Yorkshire, we have Edward Inman, b. 28 Apr 1613 (the right age!), son of Matthew, b. 12 Jul 1590, who was a son of an Edward.  Inman and Hinman are interchangeable in those times.

Know all men by these presents that I Edward Henman of Woodberry now
Intending to marry with the widow Hilliard..."   Derby VT 2-97 (orig p. 41)

HISTORY: King Philip's War (1675-76) was an unmitigated disaster forboth colonists and Indians.  Half the region's towns were badly damaged and at least 12 were utterly wiped out.  Proportional to the population at the time, King Philip's War stands to this day as the costliest war in American history.

Edward married Hannah STILES-36966, daughter of Francis STILES-37019 and Sarah (or Joan) ????-36967, about 1651. Hannah was born about 1631. She died before 1679 in prob Stratford, Fairfield Co, CT.

Mr. Francis Stiles came to this country in 1635 on the pinnace Christian, owned by Sir Richard Saltonstall (forefather of all the New England Saltonstalls).  Mr. Stiles was a citizen of London and a master carpenter.  He was engaged by Sir Richard to lead a group of colonizers to America on behalf of the Earl of Warwick, who had obtained a patent from King Charles I.  Mr. Francis (in all probability pronounced 'Frauncis') and his brothers Henry, John, and Thomas, two of their wives and two children, and nineteen other Englishmen cleared the custom house on the Thames 16 Mar 1634/5 and dropped anchor in Boston Harbor 16 Jun 1635, a voyage of three months

His task over here was to build some houses for Sir Richard and his colleagues, who were planning to come over later if things got too hot in England under Charles' persecution of the Puritans.

Mr. Francis didn't get along well with Robert, the son of Sir Richard, and for several years was in and out of court many times against one of the Saltonstalls.  

From Dorcester the Stiles party of 27 people moved on to the Windsor colony on the Connecticut River.  It is of interest that shortly after building himself a "sufficient house in Connecticut" Francis Stiles went back to England, whether for business or personal reasons I don't know.  (Suppose, just suppose, that he had left a wife and daughter named Hannah back there and returned to get them  After several months in England, Mr. Francis returned to America for the last time, probably in 1636, and settled down to carry on the business he'd been sent there for.
