Notes

  • A John Kinsman of Tavistock appears on the lists of Devon freeholders (eligible for jury service) from 1749 to 1754.  After 1730 leaseholders of land worth ?20 per year held on long leases were eligible as well as freeholders of land worth ?10 a year. In 1753 there are two entries for John of Tavistock, one for John the tailor [father of this John], and one for John junior, a holder [presumably this John just become old enough for jury service].

  • 4 Jun 1760. Caleb Hander was apprenticed to John Kinsman of Callington, Taylor.

  • 26 Jan 1771, John Kinsman, shopkeeper of Callington, purchased three fields called Crebar Bush Parkes, formerly part of Crebar farm, from John Bligh of Gosport, Gentleman, for ?147.

    This land is mentioned in John Kinsman's will, being left first to his wife and then to his son, Robert Jope Kinsman, after his wife's death.

  • Recorded in the Poll book of 1774 "At the election of two Knights to serve in Parliament for the County of Cornwall, held at Lostwithiel on the nineteenth day of October seventeen seventy four, before John Price Esq., Sheriff of said County" as John Kinsman of Callington.

  • 18 Sep 1775
    Sherbourne & Yeovil Mercury
    Callington house to let by John Kinsman
    [http://www.lynherparishes.co.uk/General/Newspaper/News-SherborneYeovil.htm ]
    This is presumably the house leased to Robert Henwood and mentioned as such in John Kinsman's will.

  • Ann Kinsman appears on the land tax records for Callington, Cornwall for 1799 as owner of a barn and mowhay in Callington, assesed for tax at 4 shillings.

    The occurpier was John Kinsman.

    The Reverend John Jope was also assessed to the sum of 4 shillings for land occupied by John Kinsman.

  • In 1806 Mary Ann George, aged 9 of Callington, was apprenticed by the overseers of the poor to John Kinsman, Gentleman, presumably to be in service. In 1811 Elizabeth Treise aged 11 was similarly bound to John Kinsman, yeoman.

  • In 1808 a settlement examination of Edward Hawton of St.Dominic decleared that after his apprenticeship said Edward had "moved to Stoke Climsland as husbandry servant to John Kinsman of Penpill at ?8 per year (1? years)".  Penpill farm is in Stoke Climsland, perhaps a holding that had come to John Kinsman as part of his first wife's dowry.

  • In the 1812 land tax assessment John Kinsman is named as the occupier of Lower Manaton, the propietor of which was William Hill esquire and Robert James Stuart.

    The manor of Manaton was some time ago held jointly by Peter Hill, Esq., who had three-eighths, and Wortley, Esq., who held the remainder as mortgagee under the Manatons: Mr. Hill's part, which includes the barton, was purchased, in 1813, by Mr. John Kinsman.

    A John Kinsman also held a tenement called Jordan of the same Mr Stuart. Jordan is the next occupation down from Lower Manaton and in 1816 a William Kinsman was born there, s/o John and Elizabeth.  At the moment, this William has been associated as the s/o John Kinsman, born 1786 in Lamerton, but some family connection between these people seems very likely.

  • On the 26 Dec 1834 an agreement (quitclaim) was made over the disposal of certain of John Kinsman's assets between (1) Mary Ann Mules (formerly Kinsman), widow, of Bideford, Devon; Jane Richards of Constantine, Cornwall, widow; and Joanna Kinsman of Callington, spinster; and (2) Robert Jope Kinsman, esq.,  of Budock, Cornwall.

    According to the terms of John Kinsman's will, Robert was to pay each of his sisters 100 guineas after the death of their mother and he could then (and only then) inherit the land called Crebar Bush.

    This same land appears in a later agreement between Robert Jope Kinsman and two of his sons, John Knill Kinsman and Richard Byrn Kinsman, in 1847.

  • In  1799 John Kinsman was assessed for land tax for a meadow in Callington occupied by John Hosking to the value of 4 shillings and 1 penny.

    He was also assessed to the value of 7 shillings and 8 pence for Bush Parks, occupied by John Edgcumbe.
