I have now had permission to look in the original Great Wishford parish register and I do think that the birth entry in 1657 is James: the J is written quite differently from the later J of John in the same entry, and with an extra oblique stroke in front of it, so it looks odd, but the rest of the name is definitely ---ames, so it must be James. The entry reads:

James hinton the sonn of John hinton and his Wife was borne the 8th of December 1657

At his period we were in the Interregnum where Bishops had been abolished and also baptisms at the font, so the records are of births not baptisms. I have also translated 'ye' as 'the' which is the correct thing to do - there was never any such word as 'ye', (it is a misunderstanding of the use of a letter looking like a 'y' which was used to stand for 'th').

29 March 1683, John son of James Hinton 5 December 1684, James son of James and Sarah Hinton ** [see below] 14 October 1687, Sarah d. of James Hinton ** [see below] 2 September 1689, Georg [so spelled] son of James Hinton 1 November 1691, Jane daughter of James and Sarah Hinton 23 January 1694/5, Mary daughter of James Hinton 26 September 1696, William son of James Hinton, weaver 30 July 1699, Elinor daughter of James Hinton, weaver, poor

** Both these entries were too faded to read on the microfiche, but the 1687 one was confirmed by looking at the Bishop's Transcript. There is no BT for 1684, so I am relying on a modern transcription made by someone who was able to study the original register. Notes from Alison Maddock, researcher.
