      In looking at that particular gate, I have to
      wonder: are we certain that there *were* hinges,
      at all? It seems to me that a more rustic fence
      such as this might simply have a (re)moveable panel,
      rather than a 'swinging' gate.

      Not in our Period, but I recall reading in the
      "Little House" books that Mr. Ingalls made leather
      hinges, as they could not afford metal 'boughten'

      Another option - the pivot hinge - can be found here:


      The fashioning and use of hinge pins can be found here
      (scroll down to pages 10-13):


      AND if you are on Facebook, I can point you to a clip
      from the Luttrell Psalter film that briefly shows a
      woven fence that may have what you are seeking.
