Margaret Hinton

Margaret Haddon (born 1825/6) was the daughter of John Haddon, a printer. She married James Hinton in 1852. After his death in 1875, Margaret Hinton worked to keep Hinton’s legacy alive, and edited part of his commonplace book which was published as The Law Breaker and the Coming of the Law in 1884. It was regarding him editing the Hinton papers as part of funding his medical training that Ellis became drawn into the Hinton circle. It is likely that some letters were exchanged between Schreiner and Margaret Hinton, although none have been traced.
