BMDB data

     Thomas Sinton was born on 26 Apr 1785 Sunup, Par. of Lauder, BEW, SCT, entry, on a page of mixed dates, 1784 to 1786, not in order, includes a crossed out George Hay for Thomas's birth record,which George Hay wasn't born until 1787, so it has to have been written after 1787. Entry reads: Thos Sinton tenant in Sunup and Elisabeth Curry his spouse their son (George Hay - crossed out) Thomas born 26 Apr 1785" (indexed as Thomas George.)2,5,1,6
     Thomas Sinton married Agnes Wait on 18 Apr 1809 Chirnside, BEW, SCT.7,8 Thomas Sinton and Janet Blacket were assumed not to be married but Thomas had a dtr Elizabeth with her, although there's insufficient identification found to date to say that the father is this Thomas Sinton.9
     Thomas Sinton married Lily Wight in Aug 1822 ?Chirnside, BEW, SCT, Peter SINTON has 28 Jul 1822, one is presumably banns.10,11,12
     Thomas Sinton died bet. 1863 - Feb 1871.13
     A 2000 tree shows the Thomas married to Agnes WAIT & Lily WIGHT as born c 1791, the son of James SINTON & Jean TROTTER. The children of this latter couple were all recorded in the Dunse OPR in a page dated 1807 but with the births and baptisms dated from 1784 to 1797, a Thomas not included.
Given Thomas ended up in London it seems more likely that he is the 1785 baptism of Thomas to Thomas SINTON & Elizabeth CURRY at Lauder, whose other children also ended up in London. This would also make the marriage of George and Priscialla SINTON a cousin/cousin marriage.
Additional evidence for the prosecution is that IF his birth year (abt 1791) is accurate, he wouldn't fit in the family of James & Jean as there isn't really a sufficient gap between Peter & James.14,15
