James Hinton

In the biography of the dissenting minister James Hinton 1760-1823, by his son John Howard Hinton, this paragraph appears.

The academy at Bristol was contemplated as the most desirable place for his preparatory studies, and his father requested the Rev. Mr. Beddome, of Bourton on the Water, to lay the case before the president, Mr. Evans. As the resources of his parents were small, some difficulties of a pecuniary nature were apprehended - a subject on which Mr. Evans wrote with his characteristic kindness, and gave assurance of considerable aid: the matter was also very kindly taken up by Mr. Sleap and his friends at Chesham, who promised a contribution yearly, during his stay at the academy.

Hinton preached to the church (Colossians 1:9) when Thomas Coles was ordained at at Bourton, November 17, 1801. This sermon and Dr Ryland's to the minister were published together subdequently.
