Amos was the son of John Tinker and Alice Homan Smith. He married Sarah Durant.
He and Sarah may have had a double wedding with his brother Samuel and her sister Abigail. The sister's parents were George & Elizabeth (Blake) Durant. Amos and Samuel inherited much land from their father. Their wives also received land from their father, George Durant ( Hunting Hill and other land to make up their portion of 1/3 of his estate). Brother Edward Durant received a portion too. There was over 305 acres. There was a Tinker owned blacksmith shop and a trip-hammer in North Lyme and the Durant-Tinker mill was located at this dam.
Amos was a selectman at Lyme in 1688 and 1691.
In his will Amos left Sarah the improvement of the west end of my dwelling house and barn and 10 acres of land as well 1/3 of farm profits to be paid by John and Jonathon and his personal estate. To John 10 pounds of inventory plus 5 pounds. To grand daughter, Elizabeth Smith a bay mare and a red heifer. To Amos, Samuel, John and Jonathan they have already received their deeded portion of the estate. His two daughters had been given their bequest and would divide anything left at their mother's death. His widow sold the house on Dec 5,1746. In 1688 Amos had 2 sheep.2 horses, 2 hogs, 3 oxen, 2 cows and 1 person house with land that he had to pay taxes on (1 cent a pound). He was # 51 on the list.
