  M i Leonard Jarrett

Amos Chinn [Parents] was born on 29 Jan 1700/1701 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. He died on 5 Oct 1730 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. He was buried 1 on 5 Oct 1730 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. He married Rebecca Ellis on 21 Jul 1719 in Shaftesbury St Peters and Holy Trinity, Shaftesbury, Dorset, UK. Amos was baptized on 29 Jan 1700/1701 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. He was of the Anglican faith.

Baptism recorded in Archives of Hinton St. Mary verified by Brian B. Chinn and by his agent Mrs. Wienstock.
"1700 Bapt. Amos the son of John and Eliz. Chinn Jan 29th 1700"

Amos came from a family that was of very limited means. His aunt Hannah Chinn remained on the Poor Accounts for over 60 years. In his early years Amos' father was in need of assistance as well. After Amos' death in 1730, Rebecca (from 1732) and Elizabeth (from 1734) are mentioned in the Poor Account books on a regular basis. Rebecca, a widow, would have been Amos' wife, and Elizabeth was probably his mother.

(P182 RE3) Burial recorded in Archives of Hinton St. Mary 1710-1747 verified by Brian B. Chinn and by his agent Mrs. Wienstock.

Rebecca Ellis was born in 1700. She died on 23 Oct 1773 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. She was buried 1 on 23 Oct 1773 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. She married Amos Chinn on 21 Jul 1719 in Shaftesbury St Peters and Holy Trinity, Shaftesbury, Dorset, UK.

(P182 RE4) Burial recorded in Archives of Hinton St. Mary 1760-1812 verified by Brian B. Chinn and by his agent Mrs. Wienstock. It is assumed that this is the Rebecca referred to in the record and not the grand-daughter (daughter of Amos) whom is recorded as having married after that date.

They had the following children:

  F i Sarah Chinn was born in Jan 1721/1722 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. Sarah was baptized 1 on 26 Aug 1722 in Hinton St. Mary, Dorset, UK. She joined religion Anglican.

(P182 RE3) Baptism recorded in Archives of Hinton St. Mary 1710-1746 & 1749 (pages 42 & 43 of parish register in poor condition, covers baptisms 1746-1748) verified by Brian B. Chinn and by his agent Mrs. Wienstock.

Sarah and Amos are baptised within three months of each other, however the record is precise in stating both are the daughter and son of Amos and Rebecca Chin[n]. It is therefore assumed that Sarah was born a year earlier but was baptised just prior to the birth of Amos. The birth date of Sarah is thusly recorded as being prior to nine months before Amos' baptism.
