HINXMAN Authors
A Provisional Listing of Published Works


Do you fancy reading – or maybe collecting - something different?  How about works written by members of the HINXMAN family?  Here is a provisional list of all known publications by HINXMAN authors, arranged in alphabetical order by author.  
Read on  .   .   . 




Daniel ‘Dan’ Fitzgerald HINXMAN
(Nova Scotia branch, 1964-).  Sports Journalist & Project Manager.

Dan commenced his career in journalism in 1989, as the Sports Editor and Editor-in-Chief of The Sagebrush, the student newspaper of the University of Nevada, USA.  He stayed in this post until 1991, when he moved to a job at the Sparks Tribune newspaper (Nevada).

Following this, in 1995 Dan began a stint of nearly 20 years as a journalist based in Reno, Nevada, mostly working for the Reno Gazette-Journal newspaper.  There he acted as a newspaper sportswriter, sports editor and columnist, and he became well known for his accessible style, grasp of technical content, and gentle humour.  At least one of Dan’s articles, a story on the history of baseball in Carson City, Nevada, was also published in Carson magazine, a separate publication of the Reno Gazette-Journal, in about 2007.

Dan finally left journalism in 2015 for a change of career direction, and he now (2018) works as a Project Manager for his wife’s business.  During his 26-year career in journalism, Dan had literally thousands of his articles published.  Unfortunately most, if not all, of these are now behind an Internet paywall - and so not directly accessible via an Internet search.  However, they can be accessed via the online Reno Gazette-Journal Archive, at rgj.newspapers.com, for a fee of $7.95 per month (2018).  Worth every cent! 




Emmeline HINXMAN née FISHER
(Salisbury branch, 1825-1864).  Poet.

Emmeline FISHER was well connected.  She was the daughter of the Reverend William FISHER (1799-1874), who was a domestic chaplain of Princess (later Queen) Victoria’s mother, the Duchess of Kent.  He later became a Canon of Salisbury Cathedral.  Through her mother, Emmeline was also a 1st cousin, once removed, of the famous Poet Laureate William WORDSWORTH (1770-1850).

Emmeline was also a child prodigy, producing high quality poetry from at least 8 years old.  When Queen Victoria (1819-1901) invited WORDSWORTH to write a new national anthem for her coronation in 1837, he declined the job himself but recommended the 12-year old Emmeline.  

In the end her 5 verses were not adopted, but Queen Victoria showed her gratitude by presenting Emmeline with a silver writing set (this can now be seen at the Wordsworth Trust at Grasmere, Cumbria, England).

In 1849 a tunnel was dug into the manmade, prehistoric mound of Silbury Hill (just 11 miles from Emmeline’s birthplace at Poulshot, in Wiltshire, England) in an attempt to discover its structure and purpose.  

Emmeline (then aged 24) penned a poem ‘Lines on the Opening of Silbury Hill, August 3rd 1849’, and when the tunnel was sealed again her original manuscript was included in a ‘time capsule’ deposited inside for future generations. 

This capsule was unearthed and opened during a further excavation in 1968.  The contents, including Emmeline’s handwritten poem, now rest in the archives of the Alexander Keiller Museum at nearby Avebury, Wiltshire, England, although they are not currently (2018) on public display.

In 1850, Emmeline married the Reverend Charles HINXMAN (1811-1903): thus becoming a HINXMAN, and eligible to join this list.  
Charles was the 2nd son of Edward HINXMAN (1779-1855), the owner of the Little Durnford Estate, in Wiltshire, England, and his wife Delitia née EKINS (1784-1848).

Emmeline published a series of individual poems in contemporary journals such as Fraser’s Magazine, from 1861-64.  These usually stated only her initials, ‘E.H.’, to preserve her anonymity and avoid prejudice against women authors.  But in 1856, aged 31, she published a book of her poetry (now rare) under her full name: 

  • Emmeline HINXMAN.  1856 (2nd. edition 1857).   Poems.   Printed by SPOTTISWOODE and Co.  New-street Square, London, England.  Published by LONGMAN, BROWN, GREEN, LONGMANS, & ROBERTS.  London, England. 



Reverend Henry Hinxman DUKE, B.A.

(Salisbury branch, 1816-1888).  Chaplain & Author.

Henry gained his middle name of Hinxman from his mother, Harriet HINXMAN (1788-1873).  She had married the Reverend Edward DUKE (c.1779-1852) of Lake, a small village in the Avon valley near Durnford, in Wiltshire, England.

Their 2nd son, Henry Hinxman DUKE, became Clerk & Chaplain to the Salisbury Infirmary (a predecessor of the present Salisbury District Hospital), which was founded by public subscription in 1766.  As befitted a churchman, his publications focused on some technical issues of religion:

  • Henry Hinxman DUKE.  1847 (3rd edition 1874).  A Systematic Analysis of Bishop Butler's Treatise on the Analogy of Religion to the Constitution of Nature, so far as relates to Natural Religion: To which is added some Considerations on certain Arguments therein advanced.  Joseph MASTERS, Aldersgate Street, London, England; J. H. PARKER, Oxford, England; & MACMILLAN & Co., Cambridge, England.  Collection of Richard HINXMAN.
  • Henry Hinxman DUKE.  1883.  The Question of Incest, relatively to Marriage with Sisters in succession.   RIVINGTONS, London, England. 

Illustration 2.  Title Page of 'A Systematic Analysis, etc.'.  1847.  The first book written by Henry Hinxman DUKE.  For picture details, see footnotes.












John HINXMAN

(Stray, c.1736-1762).  Publisher & Bookseller.

John (and later his wife, Jane née MORGAN c.1739->1769) sold a vast variety of books, first in York and then in London, England.  Their stock included many books that were printed for them and contained their name as publishers.

Click on A Novel Business, to read the story of their marriage and their business ventures - including John's claim to fame as the first publisher of the ground-breaking novel Tristram Shandy, by his friend the Rev. Laurence STERNE (1713-1768).

John himself was credited as the author of only one volume, for which he was also the publisher.  This was a large sale catalogue, 
listing the stock of over 15,000 books from an old bookshop he had taken over in 1757.

This shop in Stonegate, York, was known as At The Sign of the Bible from the large sign which still hangs in front of the same building (see illustration).
  • John HINXMAN.  1759.  A Catalogue of Above Fifteen Thousand Volumes, in All Arts, Sciences, and Every Branch of Polite Literature, Being the Stock of the Late Mr. John Hildyard, to Be Sold on Wednesday, February 14, 1759.  Publisher: John HINXMAN.  Stonegate, York, England.

Lionel Wordsworth HINXMAN
(Salisbury branch, 1855-1936).  Geologist & Mountaineer.

Lionel was the eldest son of the poet Emmeline HINXMAN née FISHER, and her husband Charles HINXMAN, listed above.  In the spring of 1883 Lionel joined the Geological Survey of Scotland, and by his retirement in 1919 he had become a leading expert on Scottish geology.  Even today, many geological maps of Scotland are based upon his pioneering studies, and anyone studying Scottish geology will soon find themselves referring to his publications.

Lionel clearly enjoyed writing, and he soon became - and remains - the most prolific of all HINXMAN authors of scientific papers and books.  While his professional interest in geology runs as a strong thread through all his works, he wrote on other interests too: including mountaineering, ornithology, and the Gaelic language.

In particular, Lionel was a keen mountaineer.  In 1891 he was the first to report the unclimbed Northern Pinnacles of Leagach (1,055m, 3,461ft), a mountain in the Torridon Hills of Scotland.  The author Irvine BUTTERFIELD (1936-2009) later considered this 'The most difficult top in the British Isles, challenged only by the Inaccessible Pinnacle of Sgùrr Dearg'.  But it was Lionel HINXMAN, with 2 friends RENNIE and DOUGLAS, who became the first to climb the Northern Pinnacles in 1894.

Lionel was also a friend and climbing companion of Sir Hugh MUNRO (1856-1919), who in 1891 famously produced the first list of Scottish peaks over 3,000 feet high (now known as ‘Munros’ after him).  Like MUNRO, Lionel was a member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club, and Lionel was a remarkably frequent contributor to their journal over a period of 19 years, from 1890 to 1909:

  • L. W. HINXMAN.  May 1890.  A Climb over Suilven.  The Scottish Mountaineering Club Journal.  Volume 1.  Number 2.  Pages 45–55.  An atmospheric account, still well worth reading.

    At the same time, Lionel contributed to an impressive array of technical geological maps.  These are not listed here, but a typical example is Sheet 85 (Lower Strathspey) of the Geological Survey of Scotland.  The area was geologically surveyed by J. S. GRANT-WILSON, J. LINN, and L. W HINXMAN, and the ensuing map was published by the Ordnance Survey in Dec 1898.  Lionel's 1902 companion book, The Geology of Lower Strathspey (see below), provides a detailed explanation to read alongside the map, of which a fold-out copy is included at the rear of the book.

    Lionel also authored various other technical publications, many of which still continue to be referenced in related scientific papers a century afterwards.  For instance, he published the following scientific papers in the Transactions of the Edinburgh Geological Society

    • L. W. HINXMAN.  1892.  On the Occurrence of Moraines later than the 50-foot Beach in the North-west Highlands.  Transactions of the Edinburgh Geological Society.   Volume 6.  Pages 249-251. 
    • L. W. HINXMAN.  1901.  Note on Specimens of Spherulitic Felsite from Glen Feshie.  Transactions of the Edinburgh Geological Society.  Volume 8.   Pages 114-115. 

    A separate paper by Lionel, first published in the Scottish Geographical Magazine, was also quoted in Volume 9, Issue 3 of the Transactions of the Edinburgh Geological Society, 1909:

    • Lionel W. HINXMAN.  Apr 1901.  The River Spey.  Scottish Geographical Magazine.  Volume 17.  Pages 185-193.

    Margaret ‘Peggy’ Gertrude HINXMAN
    (West Dean branch, 1924-2018).  Film Critic & Crime Novelist.

    In a long career as a respected writer and film critic, Margaret was an impressively prolific author of newspaper and magazine articles (not listed here).  
    She wrote for various magazines including Time and Tide, Woman, Queen, Woman's Realm, Daily CinemaPicturegoer, two national newspapers (the Sunday Telegraph and Daily Mail).  

    Margaret was a regular interviewer at the National Film Theatre in London, England - often filmed for BBC TV - and a TV scriptwriter: contributing to the TV series Film Fanfare (1956), Cinema (1964-75), and Film Review (1967-68).  Margaret also authored 12 books, mainly popular crime thrillers: 

    • Margaret HINXMAN & Susan D’ARCY.  1974.  The Films of Dirk Bogarde (published in America as The Cinema of Dirk Bogarde).  Literary Services & Production.  London, England.  (The film publicist and co-author Susan D'ARCY is Margaret's niece, who looked after Margaret in her old age).

    Neville Gordon HINXMAN

    (Titchfield branch, 1922-2016).  Personnel Manager & Family Historian.

    Neville had a strong interest in the arts – including the complex poetry of the Lyrical Ballads, by William WORDSWORTH (1770-1850)  – and also in family history.  

    After his retirement, he took an opportunity to purchase the silver writing set given by Queen Victoria to the poet Emmeline HINXMAN née FISHER (Salisbury branch, 1825-1864, listed above), who was also related to WORDSWORTH.  This fired Neville’s interest in Emmeline’s story, and he later published this carefully researched and authoritative article about Emmeline and her writing set: 

    • Neville G. HINXMAN.  1994.  Emmeline Fisher, a forgotten Wiltshire poet: her links with William Wordsworth and the national anthem.  The Hatcher Review.  Volume 37.  Pages 16-30.  Collection of Richard HINXMAN.

    Neville subsequently donated Emmeline’s silver writing set to the Wordsworth Trust at Dove Cottage, Grasmere, Cumbria, England.  He stipulated that members of the HINXMAN family must always be able to see the writing set on request - but please book your visit beforehand, to ensure it is available for you.

    Richard HINXMAN
    (Titchfield branch, c.1786-1834).  Yeoman Farmer, Smuggler(?), & Radical Agitator.

    Richard was an active campaigner over 20 years for political reform, who often spoke at public meetings.  Towards the end of his life (perhaps due to ill health) he took instead to publishing lengthy public letters to expound his views:

    • Richard HINXMAN.  Broadsheet.  Written 19 May 1833A Statement of the Private Affairs of Richard Hinxman, for the information of his Creditors, and others whom it may concern.  Printed by T. H. SKELTON & Co.  Southampton, Hampshire, England.  Collection of Richard HINXMAN. 
    • This is Richard’s detailed explanation of how his bankruptcy was brought about by the machinations of his farm’s landlord, a creditor, and their agents – apparently for political reasons.  A lengthy and passionate paper, in the style of Richard’s erstwhile friend William COBBETT (1763-1835).  
    • Richard also drafted a companion manuscript titled ‘Postscript: Dramatis Personae’.  This still survives (Collection of Richard HINXMAN), but it seems this was never published.

    • Richard HINXMAN.  Written 24 Jan 1834.  Published 25 Jan 1834.  To the Yeomanry of the County of Hants.  Hampshire Advertiser, & Salisbury Guardian.  Page 2.  Columns 6-7.  Southampton, Hampshire, England.
    • Richard offers his thoughts upon free trade and the Corn Laws; encourages agitation for the reform of church tithes; and urges the need to repeal the malt and hop tax: which he points out is effectively a tax upon 'the poor man’s necessary beverage – beer'

    • Richard HINXMAN.  Written 22 Apr 1834.  Published June 1834.  Tithe Commutation Bill, and Change in the Poor Laws: To the Yeomanry of the County of Hants.  The Farmer’s Magazine.  Volume 1.  Number 2.  Pages 81-84.  London, England. 
    • A political commentary upon some Bills then before Parliament.  Richard writes in support of the Tithe Commutation Bill, and provides practical suggestions for assessing a fair settlement.  He then raises strong concerns regarding the social and economic impact of a proposed removal of financial allowances for the poor.  He finishes by similarly criticising the unfairness, and the unacceptable social consequences, of Government proposals to transfer full responsibility for the maintenance of illegitimate children solely to their mothers.
