FLINT Brothers

Robert G Flint Sr

Robert G Flint Sr was a soldier, fisherman, farmer and mason. For some time he operated a fishing smack, part of the North Sea herring fleet, out of Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. In 1814 he had married Hannah Pirney, daughter of Patrick Pirney, a Scot, and Anne Deed, an Englishwoman. The last few years before emigrating to North America in 1830 Robert and Hannah lived at Hempnall, Norfolk, where their youngest surviving child, Pirney Flint, was born.
