Abstract: Dutch organbuilder of German birth. Hinsz (also Hintz), baptized on 29 December 1704, probably learned his craft in Hamburg; he was living in Groningen by 1728. After the death of Franz Caspar SCHNITGER, Schnitger's widow hired Hinsz to complete the rebuilding of the organ at the Groningen Martinikerk. In 1730, Hinsz built his first independent organ at Zandeweer (extant). A year later, he married Schnitger's widow and merged his workshop with Schnitger's. Hinsz later employed his stepson Franz Caspar SCHNITGER Jr. (1724-1799), who took over most of the maintenance work after 1770 and took over the business together with Hermann Heinrich FREYTAG after Hinsz's death on 17 March 1785.
