10701 The Q3 1939 death attributed to Charles is guesswork based on the fact that in the 1939 Register, his wife was shown as 'widow'. However, the index record shows 'Charles A Ross' whereas he was shown in the marriage index as just Charles Ross. ROSS, Charles (I431)
10702 The rationale for making Angelina the daughter of John Minter's wife Louisa RACKHAM is as follows:

1. When Angelina (as Angelina FISHER, a widow) married Robert Minter in 1844 her age was stated to be 33 (implying a birth year of 1811) and her father was stated as John Minter, carpenter. This suggests that Angelina was originally Angelina MINTER.
2. In 1841, John Minter's occupation was given as carpenter.
3. In 1851 Angelina's birthplace was given as Bungay, although in 1861 and later census years it was given as St Peters, Suffolk.
4. The IGI has an Anna Minter baptised 12 Aug 1819 at Trinity, Bungay. Father John Minter, mother Louisa (no surname). This Anna did not appear with John Minter in the 1841 census.
5. The name Angelina may have been an affectation - she was sometimes known in censuses as Ann.
6. Although Angelina's implied birth year when she married Robert Minter (1811) doesn't tie up with the baptism of Anna in 1819, it may be that Angelina was in fact born in 1811 illegitimately to John Minter's wife-to-be Louisa RACKHAM, then adopted by him and baptised as a Minter in 1819. We know that Louisa RACKHAM was from Bungay.

Further note, November 2007. It now seems likely that Angelina Minter and Anna Minter were two separate people, both part of John Minter and Louisa (Rackham)'s family. All the evidence points to Angelina having been born about 1811 or 1812 in Bungay. Anna appears also to have been born about 1812 in Bungay. It's difficult to be certain but for the time being it is assumed that Angelina was Louisa Rackham's illegitimate daughter and that Ann was the legitimate daughter of John Minter and Louisa Rackham. 
Minter, Angelina (I308)
10703 The Ray-Compton Family tree at has Amanda marrying Sylvester Florentine MATHIS about 1872. I haven't found any evidence to support this. Minter, Amanda (I7712)
10704 The Ray-Compton Family tree shows 8 children from Jackson's marriage, born between 1837 and 1853. BARRY, Jackson (I7598)
10705 The Reagan/Story/Hearn/Percy Family Tree indicates that Alfred and Lizzie had 10 children between 1915 and the 1930s. STORY, Alfred King (I3637)
10706 The Reagan/Story/Hearn/Percy Family Tree shows 3 children:
Luther Minter Thomas 1907 \endash 1972
Leon Judson Thomas 1910 \endash 1955
Pauline Thomas 1914 - 1953.

10708 The record at refers to Elsie as Elsie (aka Buster) Minter. EBORALL, Elsie (I4300)
10709 The record at carries the folowing:
Private, 2nd Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Son of William and Elizabeth Mary Hunsley; husband of Joan Dorothy Hunsley, of Addiscombe, Croydon, Surrey. Age: 24.

Bernard's name appears on the Winteringham War Memorial. There is a photo of him on the Winteringham History & Genealogy web page, with the legend 'Susanne Nash (Bernard's daughter)'. 
HUNSLEY, Bernard (I1586)
10710 The record at gives Sarah's parents as Haskin JONES (1782 - 1842) and Lucy G Jones nee TALLEY (1797 - 1873). shows 13 children in addition to Sarah. JONES, Sarah A (I1231)
10711 The record at has the name as Winfred Wesley "Dick" MINTER. The name shown on two of the childrens' birth index record is Winfred W MINTER; on another record it's Dick. Death certificate shows Winfred Wesley - that's what I've adopted. Minter, Winfred Wesley "Dick" (I4032)
10712 The record at is for Pierre Adolphe LAROCQUE but is assumed to relate to this person. LAROCQUE, Pierre (I5117)
10713 The record of Elizabeth A Cooper's marriage in 1866 notes her as a widow. Haley may have been Haley A Cooper, for whom there is a headstone in the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery, Spotsylvania, Spotsylvania County, Virginia, USA, as pictured at with the following text:

Birth: «tab»unknown
Death: «tab»Feb. 10, 1863
Caroline County

Company F, 57th Virginia Infantry, Armistead's Brigade, Pickett's Division, 1st Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, C.S.A.

Residence was not listed;
Enlisted on 7/10/1861 at Henry County, VA as a Corporal, he mustered into "F" Co. VA 57th Infantry.
Promoted to Sergt (date unknown).
He died of disease in camp.

The 57th Infantry Regiment was organized in September, 1861, by adding five independent companies to the five companies of E.F. Keen's Battalion. Some of the men were from Powhatan, Pittsylvania, and Botetourt counties. (bio by: BigFrench) 
COOPER, Haley (I1289)
10714 The record of Ella's marriage at FamilySearch gives her parents as Robert Alma DEVITT and Ellen nee ROBERTS. DEVITT, Ella (I34)
10715 The Register entry for daughter Sarah Margaret's baptism gives the address as Strand and William's occupation as shell fishmonger.

1841 census: at 357 Strand, St Clement Danes, London Wm KNIGHT (35, shell fishmonger, not born Middlesex), Sarah KNIGHT (35, born Middlesex), Wm CROUCH (25, S.L., born Middlesex), James ORAM (20, male servant, not born Middlesex), Sarah ORAM (25, female servant, not born Middlesex), Ann KNIGHT (20, female servant, not born Middlesex), Margaret SMITH (15, female servant, not born Middlesex), James ANGEL (30, independant, not born Middlesex) and Johanah ANGEL (35, independant, born Middlesex).
Daughter Sarah Margaret not found.

1851 census: at 357 Strand, St Clement Danes, London William KNIGHT (49, shell fishmonger, born Clawton, Dover), Sarah KNIGHT (48, shell fishmonger's wife, born St Giles (Lincolns Inn Fields), Sarah Margt. KNIGHT (daughter, 15, scholar, born St Martin in the Fields, London), Maria A ---iend, (unmarried, 21, house servant, born Caher, Ireland), Ann BEDDLE (unmarried, 23, house servant, born South M----, Devon), Ann LAYSILE (?) (unmarried, 22, house servant, born Northumberland), Joseph SHAGH (?) (unmarried, 26, shopman, born Clerkenwell, London), George SULLIVAN (unmarried, 15, errand boy, born Windsor) and Henry MILLER (unmarried, 22, carman, born Norridge).Wm CROUCH (25, S.L., born Middlesex), James ORAM (20, male servant, not born Middlesex), Sarah ORAM (25, female servant, not born Middlesex), Ann KNIGHT (20, female servant, not born Middlesex), Margaret SMITH (15, female servant, not born Middlesex), James ANGEL (30, independant, not born Middlesex) and Johanah ANGEL (35, independant, born Middlesex).

1861 census: William having died, his widow Sarah KNIGHT (58, born Lincolns Inn) was living at 357 Strand as the aunt of John SMITH (39, shellfishmonger, born Chelsea), his wife Ann and their son Albert (8) and two daughters Amelia (6) and Jessie (4). There were several other people in the house but Sarah Margaret MINTER nee KNIGHT wasn't one of them. I can't find her in the 1861 as either KNIGHT or SIMMONS. The latter name is the one she adopted for a period during the 1870s and 1880s.

1871 census: at ---- Cottages, Fulham Road, Hammersmith, Sarah KNIGHT (head, widow, 68, living on private property, born St Clement Danes), Sarah M SIMMONS (daughter, widow, 35, born St Clement Danes), Robert H BUTLER (servant, unmarried, 26, coachman) and Emma M FROFLEY (?) (servant, 19, general servant, born Chiswick).

Sarah KNIGHT evidently died in the 1870s and in 1881 Sarah Margaret was the head of household i n her own right - see her Notes. 
KNIGHT, William (I1083)
10716 The relevant marriage register isn't available at lincsto thepast. Details from FreeReg, Mar 2014:

10717 The Reverend William Minter Seaborn (or Sibborn) widower, Minister of the Church of England in Kildare, County of Joliette, and Aquila Rondeau spinster, of St Elizabeth in the same county, wre married this fourth day of July in the year one thousand eight hundred and sixty five. Family F631
10718 The second name Mary is what appears on the birth registration index. CHRISTIAN, Richard Mary (I414)
10719 The selection of William and Amey Minter as Sally Maria's parents is based only on the facts that she said in 1851 that she was born in Maldon, Essex, and her birth year, though uncertain, is consistent with William and Amey's marriage year. Thanks to Sue Platt for this information, November 2009 email.

Sue Baucum provided the following details from the death certificate:
Registration district Macclesfield

When and where died: 24 May 1873
82 Lord? Street, Sutton (street name is unclear, hope I can see it clearer on scan)
Name & surname: Maria Mayhall
Sex: Female

Cause of death: Bronchitis 2 months
Signature, description & residence of informant: Isaac Simpson In attendance ? Mill Street, Macclesfield

10720 The ship 'Arabic' which left Liverpool for New York on 11 January 1905 carried a W F SOMNER, labourer, described as male, single. This «u»may«/u» have been Walter Francis... SOMNER, Walter Francis (I522)
10721 The spelling of 'Alethea' is taken from daughter Rebecca's birth certificate. CURTIS, Alethea (I383)
10722 The spelling of Almena/Almina varies from record to record. But her baptismal record says Almena, daughter of Charlotte HUNSLEY, single woman.

Given the statement in Jane Hunsley's obituary that she was "denied the blessings of children" but adopted several children, I suspect that Almena wasn't George and Jane's natural daughter but an adopted one. It seems very likely that her mother was in fact George's sister Charlotte: there is a baptismal record in the Messingham Baptismal Register for Almena Hunsley, baptised at Holy Trinity, Messingham on 15 December 1848, mother Charrlotte Hunsley, single woman. 
HUNSLEY, Almena (I402)
10723 The SSDI gives Pauline's address when she died as Boulder City, Clark County, Nevada. JONES, Pauline Ann (I179)
10724 The St Michael, Thorpe-le-Soken parish register contains the following entry at 25 May 1769. It's unclear what its significance is.
"Frances SMITH of this parish of Thorpe le Soken in the county of Essex, widow, came and made oath before me Samuel Lewis, Curate of the said parish, that she stood Godmother, or Sponsor for, and named, on a certain Sunday in time of Divine Service, Martha, daughter of John and Elizabeth Woods, Husbandman of this said Parish of Thorpe, and now wife of Henry Garnham of the parish of Beaumont Cum Moze in the said County, within a month or thereabouts after the feast of Saint Michael The Archangel, either in the year 1745, or in the year 1746, that is to say about Twenty Four or at the least Twenty Three years ago, next Michaelmas time
As witness, my hand
Samuel Lewis."

The burial in 1814 is almost certainly of Martha nee Woods - it's the only one of a Martha at St Michael, Thorpe-le-Soken at around the right time.
The birth year shown is based on Martha's age of 67 when she was buried, 
WOODS, Martha (I772)
10725 The Suffolk Baptism Index at gives 6 Wingfiled Street as the address when son Edward Alfred was baptised, occupation carpenter.

1901 census: at 6 Nottidge Road, St Helen, Ipswich, Alfred (31, machine erecter), Florence (28, tailoress), Olive (6), Edward (3) and Grace (1). Florence's mother Emma COPPING (widow, 48, born Needham Market) was also there.

10726 The Suffolk Burial Index gives Alfred's address at the time of his burial aged 22 as Orford Street, Ipswich. Minter, Alfred Thomas (I488)
10727 The Suffolk Burial Index gives William's address at the time he was buried, aged 5 months, as Silent Street. This must be a misprint for Solent Street, where the family lived around that time. Minter, William James (I388)
10728 The Suffolk Burial Index shows Eliza as wife of John of Ranelagh Road, Ipswich. BIRCH, Eliza (I177)
10729 The suggestion that John died in 1701 is taken from the Tait Family Tree at A corresponding burial hasn't been found in the parish register. But it seems likely given that John & Alice had another son Jon in 1703/4. BIBBY, John (I2738)
10730 The surname is later spelled Gates. Penny Minter comments:
It appears that the original spelling was Gaetz but the name for this particular line of Gates was changed prior to 1893. A note in the Gates family tree says that the name change could possibly have been around the time of a 2nd marriage. I do not know if other lines are still spelling it the original way.
GATES, Arnold John (I264)
10731 The surname of this baptism is missing or unreadable but the parents are shown as John & Alice.

Death date is uncertain. Two John BIBBYs were buried in Great Horkesley which could have been of this John, one on 22 April 1766 the other on 11 April 1777. Ages of these two Johns are not shown in the Parish Register. 
BIBBY, John (I2741)

10741 The transcript below of William's Will was provided by Darren Beddingfield, March 2014. Darren comments:
"I recently uncovered a couple of siblings of Mary Johnson - wife of the Boxted patriarch Edward Minter (1765-1854), Ann and Susan [this should read Sarah] and their respective marriages to Thomas Beardwell and Robert Page located in the Boxted register confirmed through the will of none other that Mary's father William Johnson, proved not in Essex where it may be expected to but at London in [March] 1816. The will confirms the relationship of all Edward Minter's children including that of his daughter Mary to James Bruce. William, a farmer, also left land and money to his Minter descendants. He was buried 'of Langham' in Boxted on 19 December 1815 aged 77."

The Will:
In the name of God amen I, William Johnson of Boxted in Essex, farmer, hereby revoking all former wills whatsoever by me at any make this my last will in manner following and do appoint my son in law Thomas Beardwell and my grandson Robert Page executors and I give them twenty pounds apiece £20 apiece for their trouble in the execution of this my will and I give and devise unto my son in law Edward Minter the husband of my daughter Mary and his heirs all that freehold messuage wherein i now now dwell with the freehold barns, stables and outhouses and freehold lands, meadows and pastures...situated in Boxted aforesaid now in any occupation of my assigns and which I purchased of Robert Whiley - chargeable with the payment of £100 to my grandchild Mary the wife of James Bruce and with the payment of £100 to my granddaughter Sarah the wife of John Aymer (sic) to be paid to them respectively at the end of one year (after) my decease.
Next I give and devise unto my grandson Robert Page and his heirs all those several pieces of copyhold land called Pennels otherwise situated in Boxted aforesaid containing by estimation 14 acres more or less now in my occupation or of my assigns and which I have only surrendered to the use of my will chargeable with the sum of £100 to my grandson John Minter to be paid to him one year after my decease.
Next I give and deivise unto William Minter the eldest son of my aforesaid daughter Mary Minter and his heirs all that copyhold tenement or messuage called Ives or otherwise with the buildings and copyhold land...containing by estimation 3 acres more or less situated in Boxted aforesaid now in my occupation or that of my tenants and which i have only surrendered to my will and my will is that my said daughter Mary Minter use and occupy the said tenement and land called Ives until my said grandson William Minter attains the age of 21.
I give and devise unto my grandson Thomas Beardwell and his heirs all those freehold lands...situated in Boxted containing by estimation 9 acres more or less in my own occupation or of my tenants of which I lately purchased of (blank) Lambe esquire chargeable with the sum of £100 to my granddaughter Hannah Minter and like sum of £100 to my granddaughter Susannah Minter to be paid to them respectively (at) the age of 21 years.
I give unto my wife Sarah the sum of £120 to be paid to her one month after my decease....I give to my grandson Thomas Minter the sum of £100 to be paid at his attainment of the age of 21 years and without leaving issue of their bodies

But in case any of my said grandchildren of my daughter Mary minter should happen to die under the age of 21 years lawfully...I bequeath unto the survivors of the said grandchildren of my daughter Mary Minter to be equally divided amongst them.
In witness William Johnson have set my hand and set my seal this 25«sup»th«/sup» day of March in this year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and fourteen.

JOHNSON, William (I2953)
10742 The transcripts of the Folkestone Parish Registers give Jacob's second name as Boxer.

In 1803 listed as son of Richard of Saffron Row, aged 16.
No trace of marriage to Mary.

1841 census: in North Street, Folkestone, Mary (43), Mary (11) and Pleasant (8)

1851 census: at North Street, Folkestone, Jacob (59, labourer, SE Railway), Mary (54), Mary (20, dressmaker), Pleasant (18), Henry ABBOTT (brother in law, 35, porter, SE & CSRC) and Mary COOK (78, widow, sister, pauper, formerly nurse).

1861 census: at Boyle Street, St Mary Eanswythe, Folkestone, Jacob (75, porter), Mary (74), Pleasant (26, dressmaker) and Mary COOK (92, widow, mother in law [!, actually sister].

Note: while I'm sure this is the same couple, there is a big discrepancy in the ages of both Jacob and Mary and of Mary COOK. The 1861 ages are probably nearer the truth.

Jacob's death was reported in a local newspaper on 24 Jan 1871, giving age as 86, of Harvey Road. 
Minter, Jacob Boxer (I268)
10743 The tree "jtw" at, from which I've taken a lot of information, has 6 children from the marriage of William and Mary BAB, including three sons named John.

The first John Worley is said to have been baptised at St Giles, Chalfont St Giles on 9 October 1757, as 'John son of William & Mary WORLEY'. He is said to have died in 1759 but I think this date was selected only because:
the second John Worley is said to have been baptised at Chalfont St Giles on 16 December 1759, again as 'John son of William & Mary WORLEY'. This John Worley is the one whose story has been developed in the "jtw" tree.
the third John Worley is said to have been baptised at St Giles, Chalfont St Giles on 20 January 1765, yet again as 'John son of William & Mary WORLEY'. No further details about this John Worley are given.

I'm inclined to believe that the first John Worley was William and Mary's son and that he died in infancy, to be replaced by the second John Worley. However, I don't know what to think about the third John Worley, except that it seems pretty unlikely that he was William and Mary's son, unless of course the second John Worley also died as a young child. It's also possible that another William and Mary Worley couple was living in Chalfont St Giles and that they were the parents of one or other of the 2nd and 3rd John Worleys; there's no evidence of this though.
Whatever the truth of all this, I am omitting the third John Worley altogether, pending someone discovering the true picture.

January 2017: the owner of the "jtw" tree, Jen Blyth has commented as follows:
"Yes the William Worley and Mary Bab children are odd. I vaguely recall looking for another William and Mary living at the same time. I seem to remember having problems with the Jonathan and John Worleys. It was standard practice that when a child died the next child born of the same sex was given the same name. So the first John son of William and Mary would have died before the 2nd was born in 1759 (I've found it very common not to have a burial record for a previous sibling of the same name). Sometimes with children & wives there aren't burial records. The records don't always give details for deaths so I've had to look at who would be the most suitable candidate for a particular burial record so I could have allocated John 1's burial to some other John who died around the same time. Any details that were on the BMD records I've added to my Ancestry tree. The third John had me stumped. I've come across families in the 1400 & 1500s who had two surviving children in the family with the same name (it was common in prominent families for a time). Sometimes it was when there was a significant age gap between siblings (I wouldn't say 6 years is significant though), sometimes when there was a remarriage and half siblings were given the same name. In this case it could be that William remarried (to another Mary) and had another son named John with the new wife. It could be that the baby wasn't expected to live and was named after their older sibling." 
WORLEY, William (of Jordans) (I264)

(John) Gordon and his second wife Enid produced 'Old Huddersfield' in 5 volumes between 1993 and 2002. The Huddersfield Examiner of 15 September 2010 carried the following:
"A WEALTH of vital information for local historians has been made freely available on a local history website.
Old Huddersfield by the late Gordon Minter and his wife Enid, which appeared in five printed volumes from 1993 to 2002.
The original booklets offered driving and walking tours through Huddersfield and the surrounding district, but can now be searched by any keyword.
Mrs Minter , of Lascelles Hall, said: "I'm delighted that our books have now been made available to all.
"I still get very emotional when I remember the fun Gordon and I had researching them - we were like children playing out!"

10747 The website at includes a list of burials in St Mary the Virgin, Parham, Suffolk. One of the entries is:

Minter, Hilda Annie, b 18 May 1896 d 12 Mar 1950, nee Frost

Although the birth date is a year out, the entry clearly relates to this Hilda Annie, but I had her maiden name as SELLER. I now think that Hilda first married in Q3 1918, to Alfred J SELLER, and that he probably died, aged 28, In Q1 1920, and have changed Hilda's record accordingly. 
FROST, Hilda Annie (I577)
