Born: March 24, 1791, Oxford, England. Note: As of May 2020, Wikipedia incorrectly gave his birthdate as March 23. Both Julian and John Hinton’s biography of his father, page 51, agree that the date is March 24.
Died: December 11 (Wikipedia) or 17 (Julian), 1873, Bristol, England.
John was the son of Oxford pastor James Hinton and Ann Taylor, father of surgeon James Hinton and grandfather of mathematician and science fiction author Charles Howard Hinton.
A graduate of the University of Edinburgh, John began his ministry at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, in 1816.
In 1820, he moved to Reading, Berkshire, and in 1837, to London, where for many years he was pastor of the Baptist Church in Devonshire Square, Bishopsgate.
Hinton returned to Reading in his later years, but spent his closing days at Bristol.
