     The George SINTON, millwright in Bolton, Lancashire by 1841, was assumed to be the son of John & Dorothy (EASTHAM) SINTON of Hobkirk.
Only circumstantial evidence available to date was: first son John, right age, a Richard of an age to be his brother also in Lancashire, and a potential GREENHALGH family connection between George and Richard.
And so his marriage cert. to Elizabeth proved.
In 1871 there is a nephew, John SINTON, living with them, born in the USA - can anyone fit him into the family?9,3
