Francis Ford Pinder of Watford and later Bath, born Barbados, son of Chief Judge William Pinder and Ann Hothersal, awarded the compensation for Airy Hill as co-trustee of the marriage settlement of Elizabeth B. Senhouse (née Spooner), and almost certainly also awarded the compensation as owner of Hothersal in Barbados.

After school at Charterhouse and university at Cambridge (1812-16), ordination as a deacon (1818) and priest (1819), returned to Barbados.

    Other children included the 3rd son Francis Ford Pinder (1803-1861) and the 4th son, Humphrey Senhouse Pinder (1805-1888).
