About Mary Collins (Merwin)

New Windsor, the home of the Tinker family, is best known as the site of Windsor Castle, which occupies 12 acres of land and has served as the residence of a long succession of English Monarchs, including Queen Elizabeth II. In 1615 Robert was a church warden of New Windsor and "there for" signed the Bishop's Transcripts that year for the parish. At his death ,he owned property in New Windsor in the"parishe" of Clewer (Cleyw orth) and Winkfield in the County of Berk, in Berkshire and Burnham in the County of Buck, in Buckinghamshire, and in Berkhamstead, County of, Hertfordshire. He left his wife Mary well off as long as she was widowed. She was to get a leasehold interest in a dwelling house in New Windsor and in a " messuage" or tenement in Clewer. The will is most interesting. It appears that he owned land, orchards and a tanning business, much of it in the tenure of others during his lifetime . Robert was the son of Randall Tinker.

Date of birth has also been (erroneously?) reported to be August 6, 1606.

Date of death has also been (erroneously?) reported to be 1669.
