Our acknowledgements page notes that much of the translation of the old english (and latin) documents shown on this web site are contributed by Sylvia Dibbs, but we now know that Sylvia's talents extend beyond translation to cover all of the aspects necessary to research and publish the above book.

Why is it of interest to Hints Village? Because that is where it starts. The starting point for the book is the marriage of Nicholas Weightman to Dorothie Oldes in Hints on the first of August 1626.

If you would like to buy a copy of the book please email us at and we will put you in touch with Sylvia who has copies for sale.

The village thanks you Sylvia.
