HINCKLEY, Thomas, governor of Plymouth, born in England about 1618; died in Barnstable, Massachusetts, 25 April, 1706. He came to Scituate with his parents in 1635, and in 1639 removed to Barnstable, where he soon took an active part in the affairs of Plymouth colony. He was a deputy in 1645, a representative in 1647, and a magistrate and assistant from 1658 till 1680. He was deputy governor in 1680, and governor from 1681, except during the administration of Edmund Andros, until the union with the Massachusetts colony in 1692. He was also a commissioner on the central board of the two colonies from 1673 till 1692, when he became a councillor. Among the manuscripts of the old South church library, which in 1866 were deposited in the Boston public library, are three volumes of papers collected by Governor Hinckley.
