Family F441

10012 Thomas was 23 at date of marriage, Mary (Plumb), 22. Thomas's father'sname was also Thomas, a lace make, and Mary's father was John Plumb, aframe work knitter. The witnesses were George Allen and Hannah Plumb. Family F398
10013 Thomas was a postmaster when he married. Family F172
10014 Thomas was baptised the son of John Hobday Minter and Anna Maria Adriana Ackerman. The witnesses at the baptism were Thomas Wyatt Minter and Jane Agatha Minter, thought to have been John Hobday Minter's brother and his (second) wife.

Thomas's baptismal record doesn't include 'Wyatt' but he seems to have acquired 'Wyatt' later in life, as shown in the following extract from Chapter 1, "Winburg - the town and the district" of a document appearing on the University of Pretoria's website.

Thomas Leonard Wyatt Minter of Rietgat found the first diamond on the farm Kaalvallei, 8 km north of present-day Virginia. He and his father, John Minter, had half-share options on the farm. Because they could not afford the services of a mining engineer, the land surveyor Gustav Baumann laid out the underground works for them. The company established on Kaalvallei and the adjoining farm, Driefontein, owned by John Dale Lace, was called the OFS and Transvaal Diamond Mine (also known as the Kaalvallei and Lace Mine), with George Henry Alexander as manager and Hendrik Schalk Theron as mining engineer. This company was bought by Sir JB Robinson in about 1896 for £180,000.
(A footnote to the sum of £180,000 reads 'Viljoen, Virginia 1892-1980: Van Spoorweghalte tot Mynboudorp p. 143. Although much progressive farming relied on mining finance, Tom Minter, who got £30 000 for his share in the farm Rietgat and invested £4,000 in a steam plough with which he confidently expected to raise 30,000 bags of wheat a year, ended up bankrupt; see Timothy Keegan, The Dynamics of Rural Accumulation in South Africa, Comparative Studies in Society and History, 28:4 (October 1986), p. 637.)

The mine refered to in the above passage is probably the one which became known as the Samada Mine, Welkom, Witwatersrand, also known as the Kaalvallei Mine.
Minter, Thomas Leonard Wyatt (I1264)
10015 Thomas was born before his mother married, was regisred as Thomas ELMER but appears in the 1891 census as Thomas BANISTER. BANISTER, Thomas (I3121)
10016 Thomas was evidently stillborn: he is described in his Dutch birth record as 'levenloos', lifeless. Minter, Thomas (I360)
10017 Thomas was living with his mother and brother in 1851.

His whereabouts after that are possibly
1861: a lodger, aged 30, farm labourer, born Lamarsh, Essex, at the Pheasant in East Mersea, Essex.
1871: a pauper (agricultural labourer), aged 45, born Alphamstone, living at the Tendring Union Workhouse.
1881: an inmate (agricultural labourer), aged 60, born Bures, Essex, living at the Tendring Union Workhouse.
As can be seen there are large discrepancies in ages and birthplaces. 
Minter, Thomas (I14)
10018 Thomas was the son of William White and Sarah Larkin, who married on 20 December 1735 at St Alphage Canterbury. Sarah was Thomas White's second wife and was from Wickhambreaux, Kent, father Francis Larkin. William's first wife was Mary, who had two children at Stodmarsh, Kent.

In addition to Thomas, William and Sarah had 5 other children. Of these their son Francis White, who was baptised at Stodmarsh on 20 October 1736, married Sarah Carden on 8 August 1762 at Herne, Kent. They had no children. In his Will Francis left money to children of his sister Jane and brother Thomas. 
WHITE, Thomas (I3569)
10019 Thomas's 1952 marriage certificate give's the groom's surname as Norval Harrison Grant but there is an official note in the margin which reads as follows:
In No 14 Col. 2 for "Norval Harrison Grant" read "Thomas Charles Minter" formerly known as "Norval Harrison Grant or Hugh Grant. Col. 7 for Father's name read "Thomas Charles Minter" (adoptive parent) and Col. 8 for rank or Profession read "Police Constable". Corrected on the fifth day of April 1953 A. J. Trillo in the presence of Francis Dudley Darken and Francis Ronald Gobey, Church Wardens
A Statutary declaration as to the facts having been made by Thomas Charles Minter (Adoptive Parent)
A J Trillo, Rector
F D Darken
F R Gobey
Church Wardens.

I've been unable to trace Thomas's birth registration in 1930 or 1931 under either Minter or Grant. His birth year of about 1930 is extrapolated from his 1952 marriage certificate on which his age was given as 21. 
Minter, Thomas Charles (I231)
10020 Thomas's birth certificate shows simply Thomas. At some stage, Thomas became Thomas Henry Minter.

Minter, Thomas Henry (I2265)
10021 Thomas's birthplace is given as Ireland in the 1861 census, as Belfast, Ireland in the 1871 & 1881 censuses.

1861 census: at Little Cothier(?), Norton, Kent (both ATKINS), Thomas (39, railway labourer, born Ireland) and Eliza (47, born Eastling).

1871 census: in a cottage in Eastling, Kent (both ATKINS), Thomas (49, farm labourer, born Belfast, Ireland) and Eliza Harriett (54, born Eastling).

1881 census: in Greestreet, Lynsted, Kent (both ATKINS), Thomas (58, ag lab, born Belfast, Ireland) and Eliza (63, born Eastling).

Thomas died in Q1 1886 according to Peter Spain's family tree but it's unclear why the death was registered in Holborn. Another Thomas ATKINS death was registered, age 67, in Q1 1889 in Medway. A death certificate would show which is correct.

1891 census: Eliza ATKINS (widow, 75, born Eastling) was a visitor with Charlotte FULLER (widow, 82) at Gold Well Farm, Aldington, Kent. Eliza died in 1893. 
ATKINS, Thomas (I4974)
10022 Thomas's date of birth is a guess based on the age of his wife when she died.

The London Gazette of 8 September 1761 carried the following announcement, which may relate to this family:
WHEREAS Thomas Minter, late, of Assington in the County of Suffolk, Blacksmith, is now a Prisoner in the Goal at Bury St. Edmunds in the County of Suffolk, and charged in Execution therein at my Suit ; I do hereby give Notice, that-I intend, at the next General or Quarter Sessions of the Peace to be held for the said County of Suffolk, or any Adjournment thereof, which shall happen next after Twenty Days from the Publication hereof, to Compel the said Thomas Minter to deliver into Court, upon Oath, and subscribe a Schedule of all his Estate and Effects, for the Benefit of his Creditors, pursuant to the Directions of an Act of Parliament passed in the First Year of the Reign of His present Majesty King George the Third, intitled, An Act for Relief of Insolvent Debtors. Witness my Hand the 12th Day of September, 1761.

Minter, Thomas (I14)
10023 Thomas's death is indexed in Zeeuwen Gezocht under the name Munter and his parent's names are given as John Munter and Janna Robinson. Thomas was 6 weeks old when he died. Minter, Thomas (I1135)
10024 Thomas's death is probably that registered in 1889 at Newtown, NSW (Reg no. 4064/1889), father William, mother Hannah. LLOYD, Thomas (I1320)
10025 Thomas's name appears on the Wells headstone without a death date. But he died in 2004, as the following, from, shows:
Thomas O. Wells Sr., 80, of 206 Lees Ridge Rd., died Friday, May 21, 2004, at his home.
He was born Oct. 11, 1923, in Pittsylvania County to Oliver Booker Wells and Mary Finney Wells.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, Ella Raye Minter in 1997; a sister, Arlene Dove; and a brother, O. Bernard Wells.
He retired from DuPont with more than 38 years service. He was a member of Starling Avenue Baptist Church, where he served on the tellers committee. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias, DuPont Retirees Club and past president of the Dyers Store Ruritan Club.
Surviving are a son, Thomas O. Wells Jr.; two sisters, Christine W. Kirks and Lucy W. Clark; two grandsons; and several nieces and nephews.
The funeral will be held Monday at Starling Avenue Baptist Church. Dr. David Atkins will officiate. Burial will follow in Roselawn Burial Park. 
WELLS, Thomas Obie Sr. (I890)
10026 Thomas's naval service record at the National Archives show that he joined the Royal Navy on 22 January 1918. The record goes only up to 31 March 1918 and hints that he may have been transferred to another service. Minter, Henry Thomas Robert (I600)
10027 Thos. Hunsley of the parish of Hibaldstow & Elizth. Withers of this parish were married in this parish by licence. Both signed. Witnesses Richd Stephenson, Ann Smith, Rich. Withers all signed Family F524
10028 Timothy S Scherlie, 29 bachelor and Doris Hunsley, 19 maiden, both of Pierre, Hughes County. Family F451
10029 Tinch Minter writes: Jennifer lived in England from 1945 to about roughly 1964 when she returned to Jamaica and married a distant cousin David Browne - his family are descendants of my grandmother's aunts and uncles of Snape Abbey Farm where she was 'fostered' - Cipia and Harriet Groom - who both did the ton and are buried in Snape churchyard - and their brother known only to me as Captain Groom who retired to Jamaica and founded a regular dynasty. Minter, Jennifer Rosemary Ann (I62)
10030 Tinch Minter writes: Minnie Wayling was an orphan, born in Eye, Suffolk, fostered by Aunts Cipia and Harriet of Snape. My father believed her parents died possibly of cholera.

As Mrs M E Minter, appeared in the 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1959 telephone diectories at 16 High Street, Halstead, telephone Halstead 2246.
