    Notes 
    • 1911 census: Edward (24, born Walworth) was a barman in a pub at 121 Bishopgate, London City.

      Edward emigrated - both he and his wife died in New Zealand.

      On 16 September 1916 Edward's name appeared in the Auckland Star in a list of volunteers, the 21st draft, who would be departing as reinforcements to the main body of the NZ Expeditionary Force. Edward, of Grey Street, Auckland, was joining the infantry.
      Edward was listed again in the Dominion on 12 February 1919 under the heading 'Returning Men'.

      In 1923 an E W Minter appeared in court:
      WHAT COULD HE DO? In a charge of threatening behaviour brought against E. W. Minter and Albert Henry Hall, evidence was given of a neighbour's squabble. Hall admitted he had stepped over a fence into the road when the other man challenged, in answer to the magistrate. "What else was a man to do? My wife lost her temper, and she said, 'Alf, if you don't hit him I will.'" (Laughter.) "You knocked one of his teeth out," said Mr. Inder-"Did I? Well I was more lucky than I thought I was," said Hall. The charge against Minter was dismissed, and that against Hall (Mr. Hogg) was also dismissed upon payment of costs.

      Edward and Annie appear to have had at least one child. At the combined school sports in Northcote in April 1934, an R Minter, representing Birkdale school, came second in the 220 yards open. Also in 1934 an R Minter representing Birkdale school, won the 75 yards for boys under 12.
      Also, it was reported in the NZ Evening Post on 30 March 1944 that Private Reginald E Minter (Mrs A V Minter, Victoria Road, Birkdale) had been wounded.

      The following appeared in the Auckland Star on 30 September 1935
      BIRKENHEAD REUNION
      A reunion by the Birkenhead Ex-Servicemen's Association was held on Saturday evening. The president, Mr J Prickett, presided. A diversified programme was given, the accompanist being Mr E W Minter.
