About Catherine Hinton

Catherine Palmer was the Daughter of Sir Knight John Palmer (SIC: William) and Elizabeth (Eleanor) Verny. Elizabeth Verney was God Daughter of Queen Elizabeth of England.


Hinton’s children developed close ties with Virginia: two sons emigrated there; and his daughter married Samuel Matthews, the colony’s governor in the 1650s; while his eldest son, Anthony, belonged to the Virginia Company and may briefly have been a planter in Barbados.33 A fourth son, John, became physician to Henrietta Maria.34

ELIZABETH VERNEY (c.1558-March 1592)

Elizabeth Verney, although said in some genealogies to have been the daughter of Sir Henry Verney and have had Queen Elizabeth as her godmother, was in fact the daughter of Hugh Verney of Fairfield, Somerset. Her first husband was William Palmer of Parham, Sussex (c.1554-December 24, 1586). Although numerous other children are listed online, they had only four: Thomas, (June 24, 1574-c.1605), Catherine (1579-September 30, 1609), William (1583-April 1585), and Sarah (1586/7-1633). Elizabeth was never married to John Palmer, younger brother of her first husband.
