    Notes 
    • Privately baptised.

      When children were baptised in 1832, 1833, 1835, 1842, William's occupation was carpenter.

      1841 census: in Eyke, William (40, carpenter), Mary Jane (38), William (11), John (9), Matilda (7), Jane (5), Robert (3) and Sarah (1).

      In 1849 William became insolvent - see Graham Minter's Minter Story, June 2012.

      1851 census: in Eyke Street, Eyke, William (53, carpenter), Mary Jane (48), William (21, carpenter), John (19, carpenter), Jane (15), Robert (13), Sarah (11) and Mary Ann (4).

      From Graham Minter's Minter Story, June 2012:
      " 1851, in an advertisement in the Ipswich Journal, William offered "to be let or sold, with immediate possession" "a compact freehold cottage residence, workshop, stable, sheds and other out-offices, with large and productive garden, in all about one acre, suitable for private occupation or business purposes". " Directory for 1858 has an entry for both William Minter and John Minter, carpenters in Eyke.

      1861 census: in Eyke, William (63, carpenter), Mary Jane (58), Robert (widower, 23, carpenter), Sarah (21, dressmaker) and Mary Ann (14).

      1871 census: at 1 Laburnum Cott, Lewisham, Kent, William (73, builder) and Mary Jane (69). Living with them were their married daughter Sarah (30), her husband George PATRICK (mis-spelled as PATERICK) (40, bricklayer) and their children Susan (7, scholar), Mary A (shown as a male, 6, scholar), Charles (5, scholar), Sarah E (4) and another Mary A (female, 3). Why two Mary As appear is uncertain; 1881 doesn't help.

      Buried on 26 January 1878 aged 82 of 1 Clyde Terrace.
