    Notes 
    • James Earley has found a document showing that Arthur was a member of the Royal Household Staff, employed as a sweeper in the stables. He started the job on 3 July 1902. He was 'living out' and received a lodging allowance of 7s 6d.
      A further Royal Household document shows that Arthur, of the Royal Mews, joined the Royal Field Artilley on 4 January 1915 and acted as a sergeant on the Western Front and in the Balkans.
      James comments "Reading through the records, Arthur ended up working in the Livery in London for the Royal Household and died whilst still working 31 January 1934."

      When daughter Louisa Kathleen was baptised in March 1905 Arthur was an assistant storekeeper living at 4 Rawlings Street, Chelsea.

      When his son Arthur Robert was baptised in March 1907 Arthur was a storekeeper living at 2 Cottage, Chelsea Park Dwellings. He was at the same address when son Thomas William was born in November 1907.

      When his son Thomas William was baptised in 1910 Arthur was a stableman living at 1 Little Camera Street, Chelsea

      1911 census: at No 1 Little Camera Street, Chelsea, London (2 rooms), Arthur (head, 29, married, stable man, worker, born India), Louisa (wife, 29, married 9 years, 4* children, 1 living 3 died, born North Woolwich) and Thomas (son, 3, born Chelsea, London).
      Form signed Arthur Minter.
      * I think this should read 5, 1 living, 4 died.

      It's possible that Arthur married for a second time in 1928, although what happened to first wife Louisa hasn't been established. There are a couple of reasons for thinking that Arthur married again:
      - only one Arthur Frederick Minter is known to me, suggesting that the 1928 marriage refers to this one. The marriage certificate should settle the issue but hasn't been obtained.
      - Administration of the effects of the Arthur Frederick who died in 1934 was granted to his widow Edith Priscilla, the other party to the 1928 marriage refered to above.

    • Married by banns. Thomas Minter, of age, bachelor, driver Royal Artillery, of Artillery Barracks, father William Minter, farmer. Ann Togwell, minor, spinster of Artillery Place, father William Togwell, waterman. Thomas signed, Ann marked. Witnesses James Wakefield and Hannah Sparrow both signed.
      Thomas's army service record also notes his marriage details as taking place on 9 October 1865 at Woolwich, Kent. However, the witnesses' names are shown as Pte. William Minter and Pte William Togwell. The latter was probably Ann's brother, who would have been about 22 at the time of the marriage. Pte. William Minter's identity has yet to be established: it's unlikely to have been Thomas's father but if was Thomas's brother it may be a clue to Thomas's ancestry.
