    Notes 
    • When Samuel married Annie Elizabeth SECRET in 1889, on his side the marriage was registered under Samuel Edward JOYCE and under Samuel E MINTER.
      Correspondence with Ray Eyles in December 2007 has revealed that the Samuel Edward was in fact the illegitimate son of Eliza Minter, most probably she born Q1 1842, Christchurch, Southwark, Surrey. It's not known who Samuel Edward's father was but it could conceivably have been Robert JOYCE, with whom Samuel Edward was living as son at the time of the 1871 and 1881 censuses. And, as shown below, Robert JOYCE was living with Samuel Edward as the latter's father in 1901. Whoever Samuel Edward's father was, there seems no doubt that he was brought up as Robert JOYCE's son.
      When Samuel Edward was born his mother Eliza was resident in the Union Workhouse, Colchester. In 1861 Eliza was living with her brother Charles. Her world must have fallen apart after his conviction for rape and transportation to Australia in 1865 but what then happened to her is anyone's guess. No trace of Eliza has been found in the 1871 or later censuses.

      1891 census: at 21 Albert Road, St Peter, Colchester, Samuel JOYCE (20, journeyman baker), Annie JOYCE (21, tailor's machinist) and Albert E JOYCE (6 months)

      1901 census (indexed by ancestry.com as TOYER), at 8 Maidenhurst Street, Colchester, Samuel JOYCE (30, master baker), Anne JOYCE (30), Albert JOYCE (10), George JOYCE (8) and Frederick JOYCE (5). Living with them was Samuel's father Robert JOYCE, age given as 52 and married, a stone sawyer.

      1911 census: at 8 Maidenhurst Street, Colchester, Essex (5 rooms), Samuel Edward (head, 40, married, baker, own a/c, born Colchester), Annie Eliz (wife, 40, married 21 years, 6 children, 5 living, 1 died), wife, born Colchester), George Harold (17, single, moulder & casemaker, worker, born Colchester), Frederick George (son, 16, single, born Colchester), Clifford Leonard (son, 9, born Colchester) and Claude Hamilton (son, 8 months, born Colchester).
