The Sinton  project would like to:

Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but those families with a man representing them in the DNA Project will be identified.
Please read the Notes on Pedigrees below before submitting your pedigree.

See the Sinton Surname DNA Project Diary (Blog), and additional information at the DNA Surnames.

Earliest known ancestors so far identified, with their Line Leader (Researcher)
└── indicates unproven relationship  
?? against a name or place show (hopefully educated) guesses
The pedigrees  represented here under the heading "Other" are mostly those where little or no online tree or existing research can be found, so unless an established researcher has shared their pedigree, it isn't yet shown on these pages.  All welcome.

My original info back in 2000, was that James & Jean (TROTTER)'s son William was the the one married to Elizabeth MONTAGUE, and that there was a son Thomas born around 1791, married to Agnes WAIT, then Lily WIGHT.
Both of these have been shifted to the tree of Thomas & Elizabeth (CURRY) of Sunup/Soonhope, Lauder.
Love to hear from anyone researching these families, and also, of course, from DNA candidates - ie direct male line SINTONs..

Does anyone have any definitive information that connects the tree as shown here?
My original info back in 2000, was that son William was born abt 1794 and belonged to James & Jean (TROTTER), as did Thomas born around 1791, married to Agnes WAIT, then Lily WIGHT.
Both of these have been shifted to here instead, follow the links for the analysis/conclusions.
Love to hear from anyone researching these families, and also, of course, from DNA candidates - ie direct male line SINTONs., particularly as at least one tree now shows Tomas as bon Oct 1755,this date matching the Thomas born to James of Southdean.
