NOTE:  I assume George Sinnock christened to William and Hannah Lock in Hastings in 1788, is George Sinnock age 52, in the 1841 Eastbourne census based on no other reason except ages and the same name and no other George Sinnocks born at about the same time along the Sussex coast, though many George Sinnocks were born in the approximate time of 1790 plus or minus a few years. I violated my rule of three or more independent suggestions of identity, but I do that occasionally, not very often. If you are reading this, Hi, you have really dug deep into the roots and breadth of the Sinnock name. I've been quite obsessed with the subject for a few years now, as you can tell by this web site. Well, have fun on your explorations. I also assume this George is the same as the one who married Mary Anne Gorringe. A marriage entry in the London Daily News, 06 Jul 1849 for the marriage of his daughter to William Bullock lists him as the late G. Sinnock, Esq. He and Mary Anne had three children in Eastbourne and two known grandchildren, not shown on the tree diagram. However relations among "George Sinnock"s born about 1790 in southern Sussex remain unknown, including possible duplication among:

  • George, born about 1785 in Battle, son of Thomas Sinnock and Mary Inskipp, no other information
  • George, baptized 23 Jan 1788 in Hastings, son of William Sinnock and Hannah Lock, m. Sarah Govey in 1817 in Shoreditch, London and by 1818 had two children there, Sarah died or divorced (later marrying Robert Parker, perhaps)
  • George, m. Mary Anne Gorringe in 1818 in Kidford, West Sussex and the same (assumed) George and Mary had 4 children in Eastbourne in the 1820’s.
  • George, baptized 7 Aug 1791 in Hellingly son of George Sinnock and Martha Shedwick; m. Mary Tampkin in Hellingly and raised 9 children there all born before 1934.
  • George, baptized 16 Jun 1793 in Hailsham, son of Edward Sinnock and Elizabeth Bonyface, m. (1) Elizabeth Apps in 1807 in Catsfield and had 6 children in Battle and nearby villages from 1815 to 1821

Further research is needed to fully disentangle their families, so all are currently listed separately in the database. George is son of William Sinnock and Hannah Lock and great grandson of Elias Sinnock and Margery Frankwell. He is a great grandfather of John Samuel who immigrated as an infant with his parents Sam and Mary Watts Sinnock to Winnipeg in 1902.
