The testator

Jasper HINGE, blacksmith, New Brentford was recorded in an 1826 trade directory. At the time of the 1841 census the family lived at no. 190.

A Jasper HINGE married Elizabeth TEMPLE by licence at Hanwell in 1795 (Pallot Marriage Index and Middx Parish Register.


The legatees

John HINGE the eldest son: in 1841 he was living at 190 High Street, presumably the 'freehold house & shop' bequeathed to him by his father. He was '45'(ie 45 - 49) and living with him were Elizabeth (67, his mother presumably) and Jasper (37) and Joseph (28). All the men were farriers, born Middlesex. William GUNNER (14) and apprentice and Maria GUNNER (11) completed the household.

The 1851 census shows essentially the same household but without the mother Elizabeth. John HINGE was a retired farrier, Jasper William HINGE a veterinary surgeon master employing two men, Joseph HINGE and William GUNNER farriers. The HINGEs were all born in New Brentford and none of the three brothers had married. William and Maria GUNNER are identified as nephew & niece of John.

See the HINGE family tree for more details.

The witnesses & executor

Jasper HINGE: possibly a cousin, rather than the son Jasper William HINGE?

Thomas & Mary Ann READ: no record found
