    Notes 
    • The evidence for assuming that the John who appears in 1841 in Lambeth was the son of Henry Minter of Whitstable is based only on the fact that the ages tally and that in 1841 John gave his birthplace as Margate (in 1851 it was said to be Lambeth). This evidence is somewhat flimsy!

      1841 census: in Oakley Place, Lambeth, John (40, dairyman, not born Surrey), Ann (40, not born Surrey), Mary (15), Emma (12), Emelia (sic) (11), Henry (10) and John (9). All the children were born in Surrey.

      1851 census: at 44 Oakley Place (crossed out), St Mary Lambeth, John (50, van proprietor, born Margate, Kent), Ann (48, born Wanstead (?), Essex), Mary (25), Emma (23), Amelia (20), Henry (21), John (17) and grandson George WALE (5 months, born Lambeth).
      The position of John's daughter Mary is far from clear: she is shown in 1851 as 25, unmarried and also in the house was the infant George WALE. Yet it seems likely that the marriage which took place on 19 Sep 1847 between Mary Ann Minter of Oakley Street, Lambeth, father John Minter, cow keeper, and George WAILS*, refers to John Minter's daughter. It also seems probable that the marriage on 20 Mar 1853 between Mary Ann WELLS, a widow of Cross Street, father John Minter, van proprietor, and Stephen Stevens also refers to John Minter's daughter.
      * George "Wails" didn't sign the marriage register, he marked instead. It's possible to imagine that in Lambeth, Wells might have sounded like Wails!

      Post Office Directories of 1854, 1856, 1857, 1858, 1859 list John Minter, van proprietor of 44 Oakley Street and 189 Railway Arches, Hercules Buildings, Lambeth. The 1861 lisiting is similar but without the Oakley Street address.

      1861 census: John, now 63 a widower, carman, lived with his son Henry (qv).
