62 William was a carpenter of Barham in 1814 (when his daughter Mary was baptised) and 1816; a farmer of Barham in 1818 and of Elham between 1823 and 1830.
1841 census: in Postling Lane, Postling, Kent, William (50, farmer), Susan (48), Caroline (14), John (14) and Thomas (11).

Peter Marshall August 2007:
"One other historical fact about William Laker. He appears on the 1843 Tithe Map for Postling, Kent as occupier of:-
24 Malthouse Farm
25 Malthouse Meadow
26 & 27 Part of Chalky Field
28 Part of Tollsfoot Field.
I have been to Postling and it is a lovely village that has barely changed in a hundred years. However the soil is wet, heavy, clay. Farming could not have been easy."

1851 census (indexed as COKER by in Postling Lees, Postling, Kent, William (62, farmer of 55 acres), Susannah (61) and John (24, farmer's son). Married daughter Mary PREBBLE and her husband James plus four children were next door.

1861 census: at Vents Farm, Postling, Kent, William (72, farmer of 14 acres) and Susan (71). And a visitor Sarah Minter (unmarried, 52, born Barham, Kent [Susan(na)'s sister]). At nearby Malthouse Farm were John Laker (33, farmer of 50 acres employing 1 man and 1 boy, born Elham, Kent), his wife Mary A Laker (27, born Aldington, Kent) and children William (6, scholar), Elizabeth (4, scholar), Margaret (2) and John (1), all born in Postling.

Buried in Postling aged 78.

Peter Marshall August 2007: "William and Susanna had a grandchild (Helen) Mary Laker through their son George. Mary Laker wrote several books but the most interesting is Vulcan Daughters which tells of her early years in the early 1900's, growing up as a blacksmith's daughter in Headcorn, Kent. Also contains quite a few photos of the family."

March 2008: Peter Marshall has obtained a copy of the death certificate: it shows that William died on 25th March 1867 at Postling, Kent aged 77. Occupation was Farmer. Cause of death was " Heart disease - Certified" and the death was reported by X the mark of Sarah Webb present at the death.

63 "Boss" Bryant was a veteran of WW I.

The following is from, Feb 2015:
FARRAR INGRAM HUNTER "BOSS" BRYANT was born on 19 November 1895 in Hopkins County, Texas to Charles Wesley Bryant and Georgie Alice Farrar.

Farrar married Gladys Irene Minter on 14 September 1923 in Pine Forest, Hopkins County, Texas, and they had TWO daughters: Virginia Louise Bryant-Howle (1925-living) and Alice Ann Bryant(Bain)-Rose (1930-living).

Farrar passed away on 30 June 1992 and was buried at the Pine Forest Methodist Cemetery family plot, Hopkins County, Texas.

BRYANT, Farrar Ingram Hunter "Boss" (I2672)
64 "Gus" MINTER was the youngest one of the children of the "Pappy" MINTER family,
and the only one of them who was native born Texan. When a young man, he
traveled to Red River Parish, Louisiana, to live at the home of his Uncle Olive
Hunter MINTER. He worked there as a farm hand. He came back to Pine Forest,
Hopkins County, Texas, and bought part of the farm which had belonged to his
parents during their years. He was a successful farmer. He was twice married,
and raised a total of nine children.

"Uncle" Gus, in his retirement years, spent a lot of time at the village stores
of Pine Forest. There were three general stores, an ice house, a grist mill an
a blacksmith shop. Gus had a vivid imagination, and was a master story teller.
The stories were always of things he had experienced. A couple of examples are
as follow:

At Gus' family home there was a spring of wonderfully cold, soft water located
about 100 yards east of the house, and Gus' second wife, Aunt Becky, got Gus to
haul water from the spring to the house for her to use in laundering their
clothes, Gus had a sled with a wooden stave barrel fastened down on top of it
for the purpose of hauling the water. He would fill the barrel with the spring
water, then hitch a mule to the sled, and the mule would pull the sled to the
house. The sparkplug of the story was the fact that Gus had recently had a
horsehide tanned, and he had fashioned some rawhide harness for his team. The
first occasion he had had to use the new harness was to put it on the mule and
haul up some water on wash day. So he harnessed the mule and hooked up to the
sled. He said upon inspection, everything seemed to be in order. He started
the mule forward and drove him/her to the house, but when they got there, and
Gus looked, the sled was still sitting at the spring, and that new rawhide
harness had stretched all of the way to the house!

Another one of his tales was the one about the muskmelons. It seems that
someone of Gus' acquaintance, who dwelt in Dallas, Texas, sent Gus some
muskmelon seed. Nobody at Pine Forest had ever seen or heard of any farm
product of that nature before, other than regular cantalopes. Gus was told by
his benefactor that when the muskmelons ripened they wouldn't turn yellow like
cantalopes, but they remained green color, and that the only way one could be
sure that they were ripened would be to smell them. If they were ripe, the
aroma would be heavenly, unmistakable. "Uncle" Gus prepared a plot of land
north of the house and just east of the main road to/from Pickton, and planted
his new kind of melons. They thrived, and Gus cared for them faithfully. By
and by, when the melons got full sized, he wanted to find out of any one of the
had got ripe, so he went up to the patch and got down on his knees to smell of
them. People going up and down on the Pickton road saw him down on his knees in
the melon patch, and they believed that a miracle had happened. "Uncle" Gus
must have been converted and out there on his knees crying out to the All
Mighty. The preacher was informed. He got a delegation together, and they
called upon "Uncle" Gus, to pray and praise the Lord with him.

Next year Gus went back to planting cantalopes.

69 'Unknown GARNHAM' is at the head of all the Garnham families of Thorpe-le-Soken which are documented here.

'Unknown GARNHAM' was certainly not the father of the three individuals below him. He "exists" solely to suggest that the three individuals are probably related. In practice, the parents of two of the three individuals have been tentatively identified and are mentioned in the individuals' Notes. The parents of the third individual are completely unknown.

In addition to the three individuals and their families, a number of other fragmentary families have been identified from the Thorpe-le-Soken Parish Registers. These are:

- William and Mary, who had a son William baptised on 25 April 1708
- John and Mary, who had a son Daniel baptised on 15 October 1732. Daniel possibly married Hannah JOHNSON on 1 June 1759
- Sarah Garnham, who married John Turpin on 22 February 1762. The witnesses were Garnham and Henry Garnham, perhaps Sarah's brothers or father and brother. Unknown and Mary, who had a son William baptised on 28 January 1781
- Eleanor Garnham, who married James Holby on 26 July 1796
- Homan and Sarah, who had a daughter Sarah baptised on 2 May 1802
- Homan and Mary, who had a daughter Mary baptised on 17 June 1802
- Joseph and Sarah, who had a son William baptised on 24 January 1815
- Mary, who had two illegitimate children, Ann Musset Garnham , baptised 14 April 1800 and John Musset Garnham, baptised 25 December 1806
- Sarah who married George Musset on 14 November 1814
- Mary who married Alexander Musset on 23 February 1815

A good deal more needs to be done before the full history of the Garnhams of Thorpe-le-Soken is complete.

Although John Knowles mentioned a son William and a dau Bethania in his will, only Bethania sold his property. Evidently William died between the time his father's will was made and probated.
Bethania married William Giles. She was married, but not of legal age, in 1683 when she released her dower rights in two tracts, one containing 100 acres and the other 200 acres, which her husband William sold to William Byrd. The land was on Falling Creek which is south of the James River, not too far from being opposite other land Bethania had inherited from her father which was on Cornelius Creek on
north side of James River.
In 1680 Wm Giles sold 100 acres to John Pleasants for 4,000 lbs of tobacco and 3,000 nails and _______. It was "all that dividend of land that was by said Pleasants as atty of James Janney & Wm Beauhamp sold to Henry Alford, situated in Henrico Co on N side James R called "Coulsons" bounded upwards towards the falls [Richmond] upon the land of Rowland Place & downwards upon the plantation called "Barrows". [Henrico Deeds & Wills 1677-1692:143] I think this land was probably owned by Wm Giles and was NOT part of Bethania's inheritance. She did not relinquish dower and they may not have been married at that time.
In 1685, William Giles sold 125 acres called "Gardners" to John Crowley. Bethania relinquished her dower rights to it. In 1688 Bethania was of age [21 years] and confirmed the rights to Wm Byrd in land sold in 1683. In 1691, Wm & Bethany sold 300 acres (pt of 700 acres patented by John Knowles and called "Barrows" to John Woodson, Jr. It was adj to Giles Webb. On 11 July 1692, they still had possession of the balance of that patent when Wm made his will. [Henrico Will Bk 1677-1692:475]. He mentioned a wife, but did not name her. He listed children: William, John, Mary and Nicholas. All appear to have been minors. The will was proven 2 Apr 1694. The witnesses were Elizabeth Perrin, John Allday, Tho. Bayly, Abraham Bayly. All these witnesses lived on Cornelius Cr and near the Perrin's property called "World's End". John Knowles's "Barrows" was also adj to "World's End".
I have not tried to trace William Giles, Jr. He witnessed a deed from John Pleasants to Benj, Thos, and Wm Bridgwater, sons of Samuel in 1708. And he witnessed a deed of livery for land John Giles gave for 1 shillling to Nicholas Giles on 4 Aug 1712. This was 100 acres on N side James R bounded by Cornelius's Br, John Aldey and sd John Giles [Henrico Wills & Dds 1706-1737:159]. It would seem that John Giles was distributing the 400 acres left by William & Bethania.....

74 (Research):Name: Silas Fredrich "Silas Sr." MINTER
Given Name: Silas Fredrich "Silas Sr."
Surname: Minter
Sex: M
Birth: 26 MAR 1790 in Leatherwood Community, Henry County, Virginia
Death: 16 MAY 1872 in Henry County, Virginia
Occupation: Farmer, Primitive Baptist Minister
Residence: Dyer's Store, Leatherwood Community, Henry County, Virginia

Silas was a preacher of the primitive Baptist faith, and performed numerous marriages recorded in Dodd's transcription, the earliest being in 1831. In the Minter Genealogical Bulletin (p.164), the description of the letter written by Capt. A. S. Minter in 1898, offers an interesting perspective on the Rev. Silas Minter. It should be kept in mind that it is difficult to determine when or whether it is A. S. Minter or the editor of the Bulletin who is rendering the commentary, and if it was the perspective of the Captain then it was what a young nephew recalled many years later. The Rev. Minter was described as "a hardshell Baptist preacher of decided ability and violent prejudices." Judith P. A. Hill provided this account: "It is related of him that he preached so long to a Baltimore audience that they began to leave; whereupon he said: 'I perceive you all can't stand strong doctrine.'" [Hill, p.270] Captain Minter (or the editor of the Bulletin) added that Silas "... had a son who became a Christian preacher to whom he never spoke again." That son was almost certainly John Abner Minter of whom more will be said later.

The 1817 Norfolk Poll Book has an entry under Yarmouth (East Flegg Hundred) for John Minter, merchant, owner/occupier of a property in Yarmouth. (Source, UK, Poll Books and Electoral Registers, 1538-1893). This entry probably refers to this John Minter.

1841 census: in Denes, St George, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, John (65, merchant) and Ann (65). Both born out of county.

We know that the above entry relates to John of Folkestone because in his Will of 15 February 1847 he made his sister Sarah HART of Folkestone a beneficiary (after his wife's death). Brother William of Stepney was also to benefit as were Hannah Brunton, wife of William Brunton, one of the Executors (this couple lived next door to the Minters in 1841) and Susannah Ayres, widow of Robert Ayres of Great Yarmouth. No children were mentioned in the Will.
This Will can be viewed on line at The date of death is given as 5 December 1848.

The Will says that John was a fishmonger when he made it. 
Minter, John (I34)
86 1803: seaman of Dover Street, Folkestone and sea fencible aged 18.

Thomas was evidently in Holland in 1811: a Thomas Minter, aged 26, born about 1785 in Folkestone lived in Brouwershaven. He had lived there since 1807. His son Thomas Leendert was born in Holland in 1818. And Thomas may have had a mortgage in Vlissingen in 1831.

1841 census: it's possible that the entry for 'Agaha' Minter, 50, independent means, born 'in foreign parts' living in Kings Place, Commercial Road, St George, The Tower Hamlets, London, refers to Thomas Minter's wife Agatha. In the same household were Elizabeth KENSIT (14, female servant, born Middlesex) and Susannah WOOLASTON (15, female servant, born Middlesex).

Appeared in the History & Directory of the County of Kent by S Bagshaw, 1847 as Thomas Minter Esq. of Sandgate Road, Folkestone.

1861 census: the entry for Mary A Minter (67, widow, laundress, born Poplar, London), a visitor at 22 Globe Road, Stepney, London probably refers to Mary (although the birthplace doesn't tally). 
Minter, William (I37)

91 1840 United States Federal Census, in Chester County, South Carolina, John MINTER's household: Males: 70-79, 1. Minter, John (I4510)

These totals indicate that there were some children born before Monroe in 1830. I have added the following to the list from the Hillhouse and related families tree at John H Minter 1824 - 1880; Elzy Davis Minter 1825 - 1907; Thomas J Minter 1826 - 1859; Julia Ann Minter 1828 - 1885.
The Hillhouse and related families tree also includes Ethelwin Love Minter but other sources have him as John's brother William's son. I have taken this as correct.

1850 United States Federal Census, on 1 November 1850: in Chester County, South Carolina (all MINTER), John T (50, farmer, born South Carolina), Adeline (47, born South Carolina), Monroe (male, 20, farmer, born South Carolina), Clarissa (18, born South Carolina), Jos (16, born South Carolina), Mary J (14, born South Carolina), John (13, born South Carolina), Martha (12, born South Carolina), Nancy E (11, born South Carolina), Lorenzo (11, born South Carolina), Leroy (5, born South Carolina), Henrietta (3, born South Carolina).

RAGLAND, Nancy (I3243)
94 1841 & 1851 censuses: not found.

1861 census: although their birth places are shown as Paddington, it's likely that the following entry refres to Ann and her sister Elizabeth: at 36 Brindley Street, Paddington, Sarah (head, unmarried, 60, laundress) and Ann (sister (56, unmarried, laundress).

1871 census: although her birthplace is not given, the following appears to relate to Ann: Anne Minter, aged 72, unmarried, a laundress, living at 35 Brindley Street, Paddington, London.

1881 census: indexed as WINTER by Ancestry, at 11 Brindley Street, Paddington, Ann (84, unmarried, born Fulham, Middx). 
Minter, Ann (I50)
95 1841 & 1851 censuses: not found.

1861 census: although their birth places are shown as Paddington, it's likely that the following entry refres to Elizabeth and her sister Ann: at 36 Bridge Street, Paddington, Sarah (head, unmarried, 60, laundress) and Ann (sister (56, unmarried, laundress). 
Minter, Sarah (I49)
96 1841 census (1): at Abbey Farm, Snape, Suffolk, Charles (39, farmer), Scipia (40), Martha (3), Anna (2) and Charles (3 months).
1841 census (2):Counted with Mary COTTERILL (30, school mistress) in Orford, Suffolk were Sarah (11), Margaret (9), Harriet (8), Betsey (6) and Francis (5). Three other (non-Groom) children were also there so presumably this was a boarding school.
1841 census (3): at the Classical School in Wickham Market, Suffolk were Henry (14) and George (12).

1851 census (1): in Snape, Charles (49, farmer of 248 acres employing 7 labourers and 1 shepherd), "Sipia" (50), Henry (26, draper), George (23, at home), Sarah (21), Harriott (18), Betsy (16), Francis (15) and Charles (10).
1851 census (2): at a school in Cumberland Street, Woodbridge, Margaret (19, teacher).
Martha, Anna and Mary not found (Mary may have died in Q1 1850 (Plomesgate 12/286)).

Between 1851 and 1861 it seems that Francis Groom went to Jamaica [more to come on this?]. It also seems that Francis' brother Henry adopted the name Francis as his second name - if not it means that the information recorded in his Notes is incorrect. Francis was however in England at the time of the 1871 census, staying with his brother Charles.

1861 census: in Snape, Charles (59, farmer), "Sophia" (60), Matha (sic) (23, farmers daughter), Anna (23, school mistress), Charles (20, farmers son) and Mary Louisa (granddaughter, 8, scholar, born Friston, Suffolk).

1871 census: in Snape, Charles (widower, 69, farmer of 212 acres, 7 labourers, 2 bous), "Sophia" (60), Anna (32, school mistress), Sarah TRENCH (sister, widow, 63, housekeeper, born Snape) and Minnie E WAYLING (granddaughter, 4, born Stratford St Mary, Suffolk). 
GROOM, Charles (I299)
97 1841 census (1): at The Miners Arms, Nether Alderley, Cheshire, Edward MELLOR (35, inn keeper & farmer), Catherine MELLOR (30), William MELLOR (4), Joseph MELLOR (3), Thomas JENNINGS (25, male servant), George BROCKLEHOUSE (?) (40, male servant), Jane WALSH (25, female servant), Ann HARRISON (15, female servant) and Thomas CHALLINOR (65, independent). All were born in Cheshire except for Thomas CHALLINOR.
William and Joseph Mellor were Edward's sons from his first marriage. This was to Hannah KENNERLEY in 1834. Hannah died in 1839.
1841 census (2): in Gawsworth, Cheshire, Geo. CLEGG, 30, Hannah CLEGG, 30 and 4 CLEGG children, Jos. CHALLINOR (10), Thos. CHALLINOR (7), Thos. PICKFORD (7), George PICKFORD (6) and Wm. HARTLEY (7).

1851 census (1): in Lord Street, Macclesfield, Thomas CHALLONER (head, widower, 39, timber merchant, born Macclesfield), Joseph CHALLONER (son, 19, sawyer, born Macclesfield), Thomas CHALLONER (son, 17, clerk, born Macclesfield), Elizabeth HULME (unmarried, 26, shopwoman, born Scholar Green, Cheshire), Martha RATHBONE (widow, 52, house servant, born Congleton, Cheshire) and Edward MELLOR (visitor, married, 45, born Branbury, Cheshire).
1851 census (2): at The White Lion, Mill Street, Macclesfield, Catherine MELLOR (head, married, 40, licensed victualler, born Macclesfield), Thomas PICKFORD (son, 17, at home, born Macclesfield), George PICKFORD (son, 15, at home, born Macclesfield), Thomas JENNINGS (servant, 45, single, hostler, born Chelford, Cheshire) and Jane TRAFFORD (servant, single, 22, house servant, born Macclesfield).
1851 census (3): in Kennerleys Lane, Chelford, Cheshire: George KENNERLEY (head of family, 29, farmer of 160 acres employing 5 labourers, born Chelford, Cheshire), Harriet KENNERLEY (wife, 32, farmers wife, born Mobberley, Cheshire), William KENNERLEY (son, 7, scholar, born Chelford), John KENNERLEY (son, 5, scholar, born Chelford), Mary Ann KENNERLEY (daughter, 2, born Chelford), Susannah KENNERLEY (daughter, 8 months, born Chelford), William MELLOR (nephew, 15, agricultural labourer, born Alderley, Cheshire) and 4 servants ( 2 ag labs, 2 house servants).

As can be seen, in 1841, Edward's wife Catherine was living with him but her two sons were not. By contrast, in 1851, Catherine was no longer living with Edward but had her Pickford sons with her. The Mellor sons were however both living elsewhere, William with his uncle George KENNERLEY. I haven't found Joseph.
Both Edward and Catherine died before the 1861 census.

Edward was buried, aged 50, as of Over Alderley. 
MELLOR, Edward (I1681)
98 1841 census (Eliza Ann HAYWARD): in Orwell Street, Ipswich St Margaret, Suffolk, Eliza Ann (15) lived with her parents Robert (35, appraiser) and Eliza (35) and siblings Richard (9), Charlotte (8), Robert (5) and Joseph (3), all born Suffolk.

1851 census (Eliza Ann HAYWARD): in Carr Street, Ipswich St Margaret, Suffolk, Eliza Ann (unmarried, 26, dressmaker, born Ipswich) was a lodger with Willam & Caroline BINGE and family.

1871 census: James's widow, Eliza (45) was a baker and confectioner in New Street, Woodbridge. Her 2 children Constance, 10, and William, 5, were living with her.

1881 census: Eliza, 55, born Ipswich and stated to be unmarried, was a housekeeper with Frederick S ROUSE (45, manager, metallic cask work employing 53 men, born Melton, Suffolk) and Jessie K B ROUSE (33, born Douglas, Isle of Man) at Ballydawley, Pound Row, Cheam, Surrey.
It's not clear whether this entry actually relates to James's widow - why would she be in Cheam, Surrey, unless there was some connection with Frederick ROUSE who was born in Melton, which is virtually part of Woodbridge? On the other hand, no other census entry for Eliza has been found.

It would appear that Eliza re-married in 1884, although without the marriage certificate, it remains to be proved. However,
has a copy of the Woodbridge Quay United Reformed Church marriage register in which the following record exists:
28 Dec 1884. William Read to Eliza Ann Minter, Eltham Kent, widower/widow, builder, residence Eltham, Kent
Eliza was almost certainly connected with Quay United Reformed Church - her late husband James was buried there in 1870. But the 'Eltham, Kent' reference is as puzzling as the reference above to Cheam, Surrey.
For the time being it's being assumed that Eliza Ann did marry William Read in 1884. There is one final puzzle though: in the 1891 census Eliza Ann's supposed second husband William READ was described as a widower, implying that Eliza Ann died between 1884 and 1891. But the only death in the BMD index which roughly fits is the 74 year-old Eliza Ann READ whose death was registered in Q4 1899 at «u»Brentford«/u». 
HAYWARD, Eliza Ann (I41)
