I've been away and have only just looked at this query. At first I thought his name may have been Jonathan as my great-great grandfather's name was Jonathan and this appears on a few records as Jno. . But it seems that all the records have Hinah, Hino or Ino. Ino was probably his nickname. I wondered whether "Hinah", which appears on the scan of the parish registers, was somehow connected with his mother's maiden name as I have often come across the mother's maiden name being used as a first name, but it seems that his mother's maiden name was Broadley. I found a baptism of Betty Broadley at St Leonard's, Middleton, Lancashire - the church that Hinah's parents married at - on July 6th 1823. She was the daughter of a single woman, and guess what her name was: Hannah!! It's my guess that "Hinah" was an attempt to produce a male version of her name, a nod to the mother who probably had a hard time raising Betty. I have searched the internet and "Hinah" is not a biblical name, nor is it known as a male name anywhere, although there is a female version Hina. "Hinah" seems to have been Joseph and Betty's first child as they married in 1844. Anyway that's my theory to explain this very unusual name: He was named Hinah after his grandmother Hannah and this became the nickname (H)Ino, which he seemed to have preferred to use.
