Dear Stephen and any other Hindleys,
I was especially interested in you mention of Robert Hindley of Hindley Hall (1613). This was the date that information was given by Robert Hindley to Richard St. George, Norrway King of Arms (mentioned in Cheetham Society - publication 1). I understand the Feudal Hindley Family was as follows:
1 Hughe - mentioned 1258/59
2 Adam - alive in 1302
3 Roberte - married Cecile daughter of Henry Tildesley. Alive in 1322
4 Roberte - married Emma, daughter of the heirs of Pemberton. Alive in 1365
5 Hughe - mentioned in 1398
6 Roberte - married Cecyle, daughter of Gilbert Abraham. Alive in 1447
7 Hughe - mention in 1472
8 Roberte - married Alice, daughter of William Parr. Mentioned in 1489
9 Hugh - died April 1531
10 Gilbert died without issue
11 Roger married Beatrice of Molinux
12 Roberte married Margaret, daughter of Robert Worsley. Also married Eliza, daughter of John Byron. This is the Hindley mentioned before who had his claim to bear arms in 1613 rejected. His will proved at Chester in 1621.
Here follows the Post-Fuedal Hindley Family:
13 Hugh - married Patience, daughter of Reverend James Heath. Died 1651
14 Roger - untraced
15 John - heir in 1683
16 Robert - baptised in Wigan in 1675
The above succession of the Hindleys has been anything but straightforward there were many Court battles regarding the title, land and property. A problem in backtracking the genealogy is that names of children other than the heir have not been recorded.
This information has been obtained from Baines Testa de Neville folio 406, information given to the Norrway King of Arms in 1613, the Culcheth Deeds, a manuscript volume in Leigh public reference library by Don R.T. Berthon and information in a book written by the historian Colin Hindley in 1968 entitled 'This Side Paradise'.
Now apart from this what is also interesting is the first mention of the Hindleys in the 12th centuary and recorded by Baines.
"Adam de Hindele held 2 Bovates of land in Hindele
Roberte de Hindele gave 30 acres to the hospital (ie. the knights of Saint John)
Richard de Hindele gave 2 1/2 acres to the hospital and 6 acres to Cockersands Abbey"
The point is that these three Christian names appear in the extant lists of the followers of William the Conqueror and therefore it is probable that the Hindleys were originally Normans and came over with him.
I am sorry that I cannot help you with Roger of Pemberton but I have information about the Sharkerley branch.
