10503 Violet appears in the 1891 census. She was apparently born before Arthur and Eliza married. Her birth registration has not been found under Minter - she was probably the Violet Ada PARKER whose birth was registered in Q4 1887 at Woodbridge.

In 1901, as Violet PARKER, Violet was living with her uncle Benjamin James PARKER (qv). She died in Q2 1907 with her death being registered as Violet Ada PARKER.

10539 When Arthur married in 1811 he was said to be a widower. An earlier marriage hasn't been identified but in following a clue provided by Marilyn Stack I found the burial of Phoebe 'wife of Arthur' aged 29 on 14 April 1830. I also found two sons, William and Arthur.

1851 census: in Boxted, Essex (both NEVARD), Arthur (78, formerly carpenter, born Boxted) and Elizabeth (wife, 69, born Langham).

Arthur probably died in Q2 1856 and Elizabeth in Q1 1861.

1901 census: at 'Glen Roy', Wealdstone, Middlesex, Augustus (34, commission agent), Alice (30), Gladys (9) and Augustus P (8).

10545 When daughter Elizabeth Flora was christened Richard was a draper of 58 Black Friars Road. In 1850 & 1852 he was a draper of 2 Hereford Terrace, Kings Road, Chelsea.

NOTE: for some reason Richard's first child, William Roper DIXON was apparently brought up by his ROPER grandparents and appeared with them in censuses from 1851 to 1871.

1851 census: at 2 Hereford Terrace, Chelsea, London (all DIXON), Richard (head, 34, draper, born Canterbury), Mary A (wife, 30, born Teynham, Kent), Elizabeth F (daughter, 5, scholar, born Lambeth, Surrey) and Mary A (daughter, 7 months, born Chelsea).

10546 When daughter Louisa Kathleen was baptised in 1904 Arthur was an assistant storekeeper at 4 Rawlings Street, Chelsea.

When his son was born in 1907 Arthur was a stableman.

1911 census: at No ? Little ---- Street, Chelsea, London (2 rooms), Arthur (head, 29, married, stable man, worker, born India), Louisa (wife, 29, married 9 years, 4 children, 1 living 3 died *, born North Woolwich) and Thomas (son, 3, born Chelsea, London).
Form signed Arthur Minter.
* Based only on their names, I have guessed that two of the children who died were Louisa Kathleen and Arthur Robert. The other may have been one of:
Richard, Q3 1908 - Q3 1908
Robert John, Q1 1909 - Q2 1909.

It's possible that Arthur married for a second time in 1928, although what happened to first wife Louisa hasn't been established. There are a couple of reasons for thinking that Arthur married again:
- only one Arthur Frederick Minter is known to me, suggesting that the 1928 marriage refers to this one. The marriage certificate should settle the issue but hasn't been obtained.
- Administration of the effects of the Arthur Frederick who died in 1934 was granted to his widow Edith Priscilla, the other party to the 1928 marriage refered to above.

* Are Laura and Elsie Adelaide the same person? Laura was born on 19 Sep 1898 and baptised on 19 October 1898 at Upper Armley, W Yorks as the daughter of Tom James and Elizabeth Ann PICKFORD, but there doesn't appear to be a corresponding birth registration. Elsie Adelaide's birth was registered at Bramley (which includes Armley) in Q4 1898. Unless they had different mothers, it seems likely that Laura and Elsie Adelaide «b»were«/b» the same person and that for some reason the name Laura was dropped in favour of Elsie Adelaide. No trace of a Laura Pickford has been found other than the 1898 baptismal record.

1911 census (1) at 40 Spital Road, Maldon, Essex (6 rooms) (all PICKFORD), T James (head, 44, married, factory manager (bristle), born Canada), Anne (wife, 44, married 22 years, 5 children, 4 living, 1 dead, housewife, born Bradford, Yorks), George H (son, 20, single, hairsorter, born Bradford), D Cyril (son, 16, single, hairsorter, born Bradford) and E Adelaide (daughter, 14, school, born Leeds).

It's not clear whether the Anne shown as Tom's wife in 1911 (1) was the same person as the Elizabeth Ann shown in 1911 (2).

The London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965 (at has an entry for 1911 for Tom James Pickford at 11 Chatsworth Road, Hackney, London. This may or may not relate to 1867 Tom James.
The same source has a 1937 entry at 33 Fonthill Road, Islington for George Henry and Thomas Pickford - could be Tom and his son.

Tom's granddaughter Mavis Roper has his death certificate which shows he died at 10 Woodfall Road, Islington, London, in 1950, aged 84.

It seems, from email discussions from Mavis Roper, that some time prior to 1939, when Mavis was born, Tom began a relationship with Mavis's mother Annie Eleanor CONLEY, later DUFFIELD (see Annie's record for more information). At the time Mavis was born Tom was about 73 and Annie only 24. As far as Mavis knows Tom and Annie didn't marry and had two more daughters before Tom died in 1950. All three daughters were registered as DUFFIELD.
In December 2012 Mavis wrote:
"I have always been curious about my family history on my fathers side and until now never knew Thomas was my father - I always thought he was my grandfather perhaps because of the age difference between him and mum. [When] I was born 1939 mum was 24 [and] Thomas would have been about 73 so a big difference. I always knew him as Pam and spent many happy hours with him and loved him dearly .
He and Harry [Tom's son George Henry] made hair & shaving brushes which Pam took up the West End to sell. There was never much money but oodles of love & laughter.
When he [Tom] died there was just us and uncle Harry but he died soon after. We then moved to Highbury. Later I became very ill so we moved to the country. Cynthia & Penny were left with relatives as I recall It is a very topsy turvy history and mum eventually wed an Alf Seamark who died a couple of years later so once again she was on her own. Mum didn't have a very happy life she was always looking for someone to love her she died in 1972."

The London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965 (at has an entry for 1951 which refers to Tom's now widowed partner Annie and his son George: at 23 Highbury Grove - Ann E DUFFIELD and George H PICKFORD. 8 other people were at the same address.
