    Notes 
    • Kept haberdasher's shop in Gosport High Street (nr Portsmouth). A compulsive gambler on the gee-gees, they were always short of money but still lived in style with housemaid in cap & apron. I remember visiting them so he must have died after 1940.
      All the sons were white collar workers, representatives, etc. No issue from any, so Alex Minter's line died out.
