The interesting thing about the Hinthorn(e) branch is that all people with this spelling descend from the same couple who spelled their name Henthorn. I have thought about the possiblity that the "e" was written to look like an "i."

Sometimes when there is an "e" on the end of Henthorn(e) it might have been because there was a falling out between father and son or between siblings. That is to say, that both spellings sometimes occur in the same family group.
