John Flint, son of George and Mary (Inkley) Flint, of Holbeach, Lincolnshire (see Chapter 3), was born 17/18 December 1836 at Holbeach, baptized there 27 December following in the Primitive Methodist Church on Albert Street, died (testate) 17 December 1925, aged almost 89 years, at Walsoken, Norfolk, of old age, and was buried beside his first wife in Leverington Road Cemetery, near Wisbech. John Flint was taken by his parents to Wisbech in 1837-38. He received at least an elementary education. He became a butcher by 1851, and later a master butcher. He married (1) 28 October 1856, in the parish church of Terrington St. Clement, Norfolk, Sophia Bird, baptized 9 August 1835 in the parish church of Tilney St. Lawrence, died 12 March 1886 at Wisbech, of several illnesses, and buried in Leverington Road Cemetery nearby. She was a daughter of William and Sarah (Harold) Bird, of “Perkins Field,” Terrington St. Clement, Norfolk (previously of Tilney St. Lawrence and of Walpole St. Peter). She, who for some time prior to her marriage had been a servant to a family at Walpole St. Peter, was living at Terrington St. Clement at the time of their marriage in 1856. The witnesses were Robert and Sarah Bird, possibly her siblings.
John Flint established himself in business in Wisbech at 54 Norfolk Street East by 1861, at 35 Sluice Row by 1871, and at 16 Norfolk Street East by 1876 (and until 1881); his family lived above these shops. In 1861 his wife’s sister, Sarah Bird, was living with them, and his own sister, Sarah (Flint) MacNeil, was living next door to him at 52 Norfolk Street East.
Some time after the death of his first wife in 1886, John Flint married (2) (registration in the first quarter of 1887 at Marylebone), his first wife’s cousin, Sarah Ann Harrold, said to have been born at Tydd St. Giles, Cambridgeshire, baptized 1 May 1826 in the parish church of West Walton St. Mary, Norfolk, died s.p. 19 August 1923 at Wisbech, daughter of George and Mary (Sketcher) Harrold.
Both in the 1989 edition of The descendants of George Flint and Elizabeth (Lee) Flint and for nearly a decade in the present page, the second wife of John Flint was misidentified as Sarah Ann Teed, daughter of William Andrew and Sarah Ann (Cory) Teed, of Wisbech. This name — though not those of her parents — were vouched for by several grandchildren of John Flint whom we met in Wisbech in 1975, and stood unchallenged because a record of the marriage could not be found in the Wisbech area, where it was presumed to have taken place. The true facts were pointed out to us by Carol Kimberley, who not only discovered the marriage at London but pointed out discrepancies between the age and place of birth of Sarah Ann Teed and the second wife of John Flint as evidenced by the 1891 census, the fact that Sarah Ann Teed is enumerated in the household of her cousin, George Cooper, at Swaffham, Norfolk, and that she died unmarried at the age of 60 in 1898. The error in the received surname of John Flint’s second wife is likely unrelated to the fact that his older brother George married a Teed, as George left England in 1852 and our informants appeared to know nothing about him. Belatedly, and to our astonishment, we learned in 2023 that our informants had simultaneously been in contact with another researcher whom they never mentioned, John W. Harrold, who describes their testimony in his 1976 Harrold genealogy. This author was perplexed by their references to Sarah Ann as a Teed, and was led to the questionable speculation that prior to her marriage to John Flint she “may have married a man with the last name of Teed … [and had] a daughter named Georgia Teed”; yet he nonetheless deduced that Sarah Ann was a Harrold by birth, and correctly names her parents.
John Flint and his second wife are found at no. 7 Bridge Street, Wisbech, in the 1891 census, in which John is called a butcher.
At the time, their houshold included a “visitor” Sarah Harrold, aged 40, recorded as single.

The inscription on the reverse identifies the younger daughters as Kate (1865), and Susannah (1866), but may be in error as Mary Elizabeth Flint (1863) was still alive at the time of Susannah’s birth. Collection of John Blythe Dobson.
Widowed for a second time in 1923, John Flint spent his last years at “Barton Lodge” on the North Brink, Wisbech, the home of his daughter Kate Cook. He died at Walsoken House, Walsoken, Norfolk, the home of his daughter Susannah Miller. According to a letter written by Kate to her sister Mildred, he had a very peaceful end, and his last words were, “Oh, if only I had wings to take me to heaven.”
Family tradition states that John Flint and his family led lives of strict obedience to the tenets of the Methodist faith. They used no alcohol or tobacco, and the Lord’s Day was observed so strictly that his wife prepared the Sunday meal the day before in the church’s communal kitchen, known as the “parish oven.” The whole of the Sabbath was spent at church. John Flint was certainly a lay preacher, as his father is said to have been.
His will left his assets in trust, with the income to be paid to his (second) wife during her lifetime, and afterward to his son Harry (who was an epileptic and unable to work); after whose death his estate was to pass equally to his other children except James and John, who had received their shares earlier. In fact his second wife predeceased him, and the funds passed directly to Harry; when Harry died in 1954 and the estate (totalling £1080) was finally divided, only Annie of all John Flint’s children remained.
Children, all by first wife:
- George William Flint, born 27 August 1857 at Wisbech, died 16 April 1858 at Wisbech, of bronchitis.
- James MacNeil Flint, born 11 January 1859 at Wisbech, continued in Chapter 15a.
- Sarah Agnes (“Aggie”) Flint, born 18 January 1861 at Wisbech, died v.p. 16 December 1922, aged over 61 years, possibly at Sunderland, Durham. She was living with her parents in 1871, when she was a student, but had left their home by 1881. She married 6 October 1885 in the Methodist Free Church, Wisbech, the Rev. Foster Raine, Jr., born 1851-52 (aged 29 in 1881, 39 in 1891), either at Stanhope, Durham (per the 1861 census), at Edmondbyers, co. Durham (per the 1881 census), or at Lambshield, Northumberland (per the 1891 and 1901 censuses), died 1914-18, during the war, in France, son of the late Foster Raine, of Newlands, Northumberland, a cotton miller (per 1861 census) and farmer (per his son Foster’s marriage record), by the latter’s wife Margaret Race.
Prior to their marriage he is listed as a “United Methodist Free Church minister” lodging at 17 Princess Street, Barnsley, Yorkshire. He was still stationed at Barnsley in March of 1883, about which time he “intimated his intention to remove from the Circuit in August next, when he will have completed three years’s service. The following September he is reported as having been appointed to Hexham, near Newcastle-on-Tyne, and in October a farewell party was thrown for him in which the presenter stated: “During the whole of Mr. Raine’s stay in their midst, he had manifested the deepest interest in the welfare of their Church, and had conducted the whole of the anniversary services, as well as getting up concerts, entertainments, and tea meetings for the Church funds. As a Church they had suffered very considerably from commercial depression, and the removal of many of the members to other parts of the country; and had it not been for the special attention and encouragement they had received from Mr. Raine, they would have been compelled to close the chapel.” A detailed account of Raine’s response has been preserved, which reads, in part:
He was aware that some good sort of people viewed the introduction of any new method in Christian work with doubt and suspicion, and prognosticated that they would eventuate in the enfeeblement of the Church. However, he was willing to have such efforts measured by their results. Christianity
was a social as well as a moral elevator, but unfortunately some people got so far up the ladder that they could not see, much less render assistance to those who were floundering about “in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.” The masses, as the poor people are often designated, would not bother to acquire a knowledge of the multiplied systems of theology that existed. Nay, they would not always go to the Bible itself for a code of morals by which to regulate their conduct in their relations with their fellow-men. The only means by which many of the outsiders were likely to be won to the Church is by the consistent walk and conduct of Christians. They could do more to get the attention of the indifferent by translating doctrines of Christianity into actual and practical life than all the preaching put together, and hence all members of the Church should realise their individual responsibility, and seek to avoid neutralising the influence of the preached Gospel by walking consistently and acting on the “square.” The Church as well as the ministry was a little too “starchy,” and should not be ashamed to come down a step or two, or even to “become all things to all men,” in order to “rescue the perishing.” The spirit of “standoffism” was the most potent agent in the service of his Satanic Majesty, the great enemy of Christ.
Around 1888 the Raines were living at Prudhoe, Northumberland, where two of their children were born. In 1891 they were living at Dukinfield, Ashton under Lyne, Cheshire; the “sister-in-law Mildred M. Raine,” aged 15, born at Wisbech, who was living with them was actually his wife’s sister, Mildred Flint, at whose marriage ceremony in 1900 at Birstall, Yorkshire, Foster Raine presided. In the 1901 census they were enumerated at Appleby, Cumberland. We understand they later lived at Sunderland, Durham. Children:
- Bertram Raine, born in 1887 at Prudhoe, Northumberland, living October 1954 but died by 1976. Our informants did not know the name of his wife, but we suspect he was the Bertram Raine who married in 1914 in the Sunderland, Durham, registration district, Harriet J. Gray.

For some time they farmed at Walsoken, where he was chairman of the Walsoken Urban District Council in 1912, a J.P. for the Marshland District of Norfolk, and a Commissioner for Land Taxes.

Susannah and her husband, a gardener, lived at “Clarkson House,” Wisbech, for a short time after their marriage, then at 42 Norwich Road, Walsoken, where they are found in the 1891 census, which calls George a florist, and shows his father, George W. Miller, nurseryman and auctioneer, as their next-door neighbor. They were enumerated at Tydd St. Giles, Cambridgeshire, in the 1901 census, in which George is called a “fruit and flower grower.”
According to their daughter Florence, they later lived at Walpole [St. Andrew?], Norfolk, where they farmed and where some of their children were born, before finally taking up residence at “Walsoken House,” Walsoken, Norfolk, of which town George Augustus Miller became a J.P. Children:

- Mildred (“Millie”) Mary Flint, born 25 February 1876 at Wisbech, died 26 July 1947 at Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, of heart failure, aged 71 years, and buried there four days later in Brookside Cemetery. In 1891, at the age of 15 years, she living with her elder sister, Sarah (Flint) Raine, of Dukinfield, Ashton under Lyne, Cheshire, probably to help with the young Raine children; the census of that year incorrectly records her as Mildred M. Raine. She married 16 April 1900 in Mt. Tabour United Methodist Free Church, Birstall, Yorkshire, by her brother-in-law, the Rev. Foster Raine, (Sargeant-Major) John Jarratt Blythe, born 18 August 1878 at Blackpool, Lancashire, died 21 January 1942 at Winnipeg, of heart failure, and buried there two days later in the military plot of Brookside Cemetery. We have cancelled the section in the Flint family history on Mildred Flint and her husband, and direct the reader to our BLYTHE page for further details.
