|Children||Barbara, Grace, Joseph, Barbara, John, Sarah, John|
Nothing is yet known of John's early life, or where he originated. He married a woman called Grace (9) and they had a daughter Barbara (1). They moved to Tideswell, where John worked as a miner (4)(12), probably of lead, sometime shortly before March 1722, when Barbara was buried there (1). They went on to have another daughter Grace later that year (2). Their son Joseph, who may also have been born before 1722, was buried in 1724 (3). Their next daughter, born in 1725, was also called Barbara (4), and she was followed by a son John in 1728 (5), although he only lived for a couple of months (6). They had a daughter Sarah in 1729 (7), and then another son John in 1732 (8).
John's wife Grace died in 1739 (9). His daughter Barbara died in 1748 (10).
John died in February 1762 (11), having brought the surname Flint to Tideswell. His numerous descendants would live there up to the present day (12).
