Just looking to see if they are any relation to the North American Tinkers

John Tinker (father) Will only states one as son, John Bladen Tinker. Does not say what the relationship was with the other young man although one assumes being left money and being named HMS Tax collector was familial. Mother filed a civil suit on son after John Bladen Tinker death.

His father John Tinker had a will. The will should list the two sons

How do I confirm that John Bladen Tinker had a brother by the name of Jeremiah Tinker, Father John Tinker and mother Isabella Bladen Tinker
