    Notes 
    • 1803: of High Street, Folkestone seaman and sea fencible (mariner 1792) aged 30 or 32.

      The 1817 Norfolk Poll Book has an entry under Yarmouth (East Flegg Hundred) for John Minter, merchant, owner/occupier of a property in Yarmouth. (Source Ancestry.com, UK, Poll Books and Electoral Registers, 1538-1893). This entry probably refers to this John Minter.

      1841 census: in Denes, St George, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, John (65, merchant) and Ann (65). Both born out of county.

      We know that the above entry relates to John of Folkestone because in his Will of 15 February 1847 he made his sister Sarah HART of Folkestone a beneficiary (after his wife's death). Brother William of Stepney was also to benefit as were Hannah Brunton, wife of William Brunton, one of the Executors (this couple lived next door to the Minters in 1841) and Susannah Ayres, widow of Robert Ayres of Great Yarmouth. No children were mentioned in the Will.
      This Will can be viewed on line at www.norfolksources.norfolk.gov.uk. The date of death is given as 5 December 1848.

      The Will says that John was a fishmonger when he made it.
