    Notes 
    • Emails from Roz Doyle, April 2007:

      I wanted to add a name for you – the mother of Sarah Nicholls, born c1856 in Bethnal Green, and wife of William Thomas Minter, born June 1854 and part of the Ash(1) family, was a lady named Mary Dulieu. There is no evidence that she ever married George Nicholls, Sarah’s father, but I have a copy of Sarah’s elder brother’s birth certificate that shows the mother’s name as Mary Dulieu.

      Sarah’s elder brother, David Henry Nicholls, had a son (Henry David Nicholls) who went on to marry Sarah and William’s daughter Mary Jane Minter – i.e. his first cousin.

      Because nobody can locate Sarah’s birth certificate I shall understand if you do not wish to add the data, but Census records back the information up: the 1871 Census (35 John Street, Bethnal Green) shows a David Dulieu (widower, 82, weaver) with his married daughter, Mary Nicholls (widow, 47, charing), and his grandchildren David (19, labourer), William (10, scholar) and Sarah (17, match box maker). The source citation is: Class: RG10; Piece: 481; Folio: 64; Page: 49; GSU roll: 823370.

      The Nicholls originate from Hertfordshire, and many were involved in the brickmaking business (including George), bringing them closer to London. George and Mary ended up with 34 grandchildren in total (only 4 of them Minters!).

      Linking into the Dulieu family tree may well be useful to your research as there is an interest in them – they were silk weavers, and can trace the family back to the 1600s in France, where they were Huguenots and therefore thrown out of France. Other Dulieu researchers may well have Minter connections too, as there is an awful lot of families intermarrying.

      [In 1861 the Nicholls family lived in South Shoebury, Essex]. I think that maybe George’s health meant that they moved out of Bethnal Green, an area that was by all accounts little better than a shanty town with little or no sanitation, into a more rural area. William was in fact born 2 months after his father’s death. My guess is that Joseph stayed in Essex because he fell for Elizabeth, whereas the others stayed in or returned to London.
