Capt. John/3 Vinton III, born 16 Jan 1681/82 at Malden, Massachusetts1, married (1), 9 Mar 1703 at Charlestown (both of Woburn), Abigail/3 Richardson, daughter of Stephen/2 Richardson and Abigail/2 Wyman,2 who died at Charlestown-End, now Stoneham, 21 Jun 1720, a. 36.3,4,5 Then of Charlestown, he married (2), 29 Nov 1720 at Woburn, Abigail/5 Converse of W., daughter of John/4 Converse and Abigail Sawyer,6 who died sometime after 1738, when they removed to Dudley.7
     He was sole executor of his father's will, dated 15 Jan 1721/22, which left him all his father's moneys and bonds, and the rest of his estate not otherwise disposed of. His father had previously given him £50, and now gave him his silver cup and one silver spoon, flowered on the bottom.8 In his mother's will, dated 21 Apr 1729, proved 1741, he received a token five shillings.9
     He married (3) (int. 6 May 1752, Stoneham) Hannah/3 Richardson, daughter of Nathaniel/2 Richardson and Mary (–?–), and widow of Ens. Timothy Baldwin of S.10
     He died at Dudley, intestate, circa Dec 1760, a. 78. The order for appraisal of his estate was issued 31 Dec 1760, sons Joseph Vinton and Joshua Vinton administrators. Return made Feb. 18, 1761; personal estate, £91.3s.1d. His widow Hannah was provided for out of the estate.11 "
     "John Vinton, Esq. was a man of great ability, energy and activity, and became a leader in every place where his lot was cast. More than thirty deeds, bearing date between 1700 and 1727, are on record in the Court House in East Cambridge, in which he is either grantor or grantee. … The first is dated Feb. 11, 1700-1, in which John Tufts of Charlestown conveys to William Richardson, husbandman, and John Vinton, weaver, both of Woburn, 27 acres of woodland in Charlestown, on 'Mystic side.'" By 1703 he was purchasing land in Reading, and deeds of 1705-6 call him "John Vinton of Reading, weaver." He then lived at Charlestown End (present-day Stoneham) from Nov 1710 to Nov 1738, in the southeast part of the town, "on the old road to Boston, and near the outlet of Spot Pond."
     "When Stoneham was incorporated, the usual order from the General Court was addressed to John Vinton, as the principal inhabitant, directing him to issue a warrant for the first town meeting. He advanced more money and probably did more than any other man, to obtain an act of incorporation for the town." He was six times selectman between 1726 and 1735, consistently chosen moderator at town meetings, representative to the legislature and justice of the peace, 1734, and the largest taxpayer in the town. When the important task of erecting a meetinghouse presented itself, he was one of a committee of three to select a site, procure materials, put up and finish the building. He was also one of the committee chosen to employ the town's first minister.
     A lieutenant in the trainband in 1720, he was chosen captain in 1723. In Stoneham records, he is "Captain Vinton" until he went to Boston as Representative in 1734: upon his return and afterwards, he was "Squire Vinton."12

John/2 Vinton Jr., born 2 Mar 1650 at Lynn, Massachusetts1, removed with his father circa 1676 to Malden2, where he married, 16 Aug 1677, Hannah Green of M., daughter of Thomas Green.3 An ironworker, he was probably employed at the iron works located in that part of Lynn which is now Saugus. "It is but an hour's walk from those Iron Works to Malden village. He was a man of capacity and energy, as appears from the property he acquired, and the position he held in society. The Vinton family in this country are nearly all his descendants."4
     "On that [Mystic] river, in the extreme eastern part of Woburn, two miles N.E. of Woburn village, not far from the N.W. corner of Stoneham, John Vinton had his residence."5 Three deeds of 1709 which mention John Vinton of Braintree indicate that he spent some time there as well.6
     The will of John Vinton "of Woburn, gentleman," dated 15 Jan 1721/22, gives to wife Hannah "the use and improvement of all his Household Stuff, and the improvement of one half of his whole Estate in Lands and Chattels, during her natural life," and the other half of his chattels "to her and her dispose for ever." To eldest son John, whom he appoints sole executor, he gives all his moneys and bonds, and the rest of his estate, not otherwise disposed of. He had previously given him fifty pounds; and now gives him his silver cup, and one silver spoon, flowered on the bottom. To son Thomas he gives £50. To son Samuel he gives £5 which, with what he had already received, is to be his full portion. To son Abiathar he gives £50, "the other half of my creatures," and his wearing apparel. To each of his daughters Hannah Green, Rebecca Richardson and Mary French he gives £20 and one third part of his Household Stuff, after their mother had done with it. Daughter Hannah also received a silver spoon. The inventory of his personal estate, taken 28 Dec 1727, amounted to £114.5.0.7
     John Vinton died at Woburn 13 Nov 1727, a. 77.8 His widow removed to Braintree to live with their son Thomas, and died in 1741.9 Hannah is interred in the Old Burying Ground, Wakefield.10 John's burial site is unknown.
