    Notes 
    • [Shinn.ftw]

      Thomas Shinn, son of John Shinn, Sr., was born in England and came to America
      with his father probably between 1675/80. He married first Sarah Shawthorn in
      Burlington County, NJ in1688, and she apparently died shortly thereafter, since
      the Church approved his marriage to Mary Stockton in 1692. Thomas died
      about two years later leaving one child (Thomas) and an unborn child (Samuel).
      Thomas' will shows him to have been a slaveholder, one of the earliest in New
      Jersey; the will also shows four brothers (John Jr., James, George and
      presumable the sibling named Francis was a male).

      Thomas wrote and signed his Will on 8 Nov 1694. It was proved on 15 Dec 1694 so death occurred between those two dates.

His father John Shinn Sr is one of the witnesses of the Will being signed.Source New Jersey, Abstract of Wills, 1670-1817
