This site was launched in 2006 and is still growing; on 22 June 2018 the number of individuals in the site is 35,022, up from 32,345 in July 2016 (go to Statistics for a breakdown by location). The information presented is as accurate as possible. Please tell me if you think changes are needed. One of the main purposes of the site is to encourage the exchange of information about Minters everywhere so please get in touch with me. Most Minter families originated in Kent, Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and London. Following the links below will take you to a page devoted to each of these main locations.

  • Kent.

  • Suffolk.

  • Norfolk.

  • Essex.

  • London.

The Hunsleys - are related to the Minters via the 2011 marriage of John Hunsley and Erica Minter. John is a member of the 'Lincolnshire Hunsleys' (which actually originated in Yorkshire) but rather than expand the Great Horkesley tree, the Hunsleys can be found on this site in their own tree. I'm indebted to Stephen 'Doc' Hunsley for his help in putting the Hunsley tree together.

Waifs & strays - I am looking for information about these people. Can you help?

 Minters in Australia - the story of Minters who left England for Australia.

Minters in America - 7 September 2015. The Church Inn, Ludlow, Shropshire was the venue for an historic meeting between Clifton and Diana Minter of Alabama, USA (below, left) and Pauline and John Minter of Shropshire, England (below, right).

Clifton and John have collaborated and with a lot of help from other sources, the site now includes a section for American Minters. More work is needed but to get to the individual identified so far as possibly the ancestor of the American Minter clan, click on Richard Minter, born about 1570

Thomas J Minter, author of 'The Minters of Pine Forest' has placed a collection of Minter-related photographs on-line.

Minters by adoption - a small collection of families which have adopted the surname Minter.
