Kinton, Caroline (nee Weston) (1866-1913)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by Mark Knowlson

Mrs. Kinton, the beloved wife of Mr. Albert Kinton, society steward at Barleston, Hinckley Circuit, passed to her reward on Friday, May 16th, and was interred amid many expressions of sympathy on May 19th. For several years Mrs. Kinton suffered from a weak heart, but as long as she could she regularly attended the services and took an active part in many bazaar and other efforts. 

She was exceedingly generous, and the preachers were ever welcome to her home. Perhaps, however, the chief trait in her character was her intense devotion to her loved ones. Over her husband she exerted a most salutary influence, and assisted him in the duties of the many offices he held. Her departure is a great loss to our church.


Caroline was born in late 1866 at Barlestone, Leicestershire, to parents John Weston, a labourer (1871), and Elizabeth Bailey.

Before her marriage Caroline worked as a domestic servant (1892).

She married Albert Kinton (1862-1921), a coal miner, in early 1892 in the Market Bosworth Registration District, Leicestershire.

Caroline died on 16 May, 1913 at Barlestone, Leicestershire.
