    Notes 
    • William doesn't appear in the 1851 census with his parents, having already left home but we know he was the son of William and Ann because in 1871 his sister Alice was living with him.

      William married the Shuttleworth sisters Martha and Ellen in 1856 and 1866 respectively. Ellen died, according to her death certificate, on 9 April 1880, the informant being her sister-in-law Caroline Minter (William's brother). It would appear however that William married Amelia COX several months before Ellen died, on 28 July 1879. Exactly what happened is unclear and it is just possible that the William who married Amelia COX was a different person altogether. The justification for thinking that the same William married the Suttleworth sisters then Amelia COX is that:
      - in 1866 William gave his age as 29, impying a birth year of 1836 or 1837, his profession as whitesmith and his father's name and profession as William Minter, builder.
      - Ellen's death certificate describes her as 'wife of William Minter, whitesmith'.
      - in 1879 William gave his age as 42, implying a birth year of 1836 or 1837, his occupation a plumber and his father's name and profession as William Minter, builder.

      In 1871 when son Charles was born, William's occupation was stated as 'Ironmonger', address 7 Earls Court Road..

      In 1872 when son Herbert Frank was born, William's occupation was stated as 'Ironmonger &c'.

      1851 census: at 18 Holland Street, Kensington, William (14, apprentice smith).
      It may be just a coincidence but the 1852 London Electoral Register shows that 18 Holland Street was owned by Filmer Hume Minter, born about 1825 of the Canterbury group. But it could also suggest some connection between the Kensington group and the Canterbury group.

      1861 census: at 4 Corston Terrace, Kensington, William (25, ironmonger &c employing 1 boy), Martha (25), Jane M (3, scholar, born Bayswater) and Emily (1).

      Listed in the Post Office Directory 1861 as William Minter, gas fitter, 20 Earl Street, Kensington.

      William and Martha lived at 4 Corston Terrace when son William Arthur was baptised in September 1863. William was described as a gas fitter.

      Listed in the Post Office Directory 1870 as William Minter, gas fitter, 4 Corston Terrace, Earl Street, Kensington. In the 1871 Commercial Directory as William Minter, gas fitter, 7 Earls Court Road, Kensington.

      1871 census: at 7 Earls Court Road, Kensington, William (34, smith), Ellen (37), Jane M (13, scholar, born Kensington), Emily (11, scholar), Elizabeth (9, scholar), Harry A (3), Gertrude A (2), Charles S (5 months), Alice (sister, 24) and Thomas SHUTTLEWORTH (16, smith, presumably related to William's wife).

      1881 census: at 4 Bothwell Place, Fulham, London, William (43, carpenter and gasfitter), Amelia (40, born Chatham) and Herbert F (8). The children listed in 1871 were dispersed as follows:
      Jane M died in 1874.
      Elizabeth probably died in 1880.
      Emily, aged 21, was a servant at 1 Glynde Terrace, Battersea.
      Of Harry A there is no trace.
      Gertrude, aged 12, was a domestic servant at the Warwick Arms, Pembroke Road, Kensington.
      Charles S was an inmate at the Industrial Home for Boys, Islington.

      1891 census: at 9 Ifield Road, Kensington, William (52, hotwater fitter) and Amelia (41, born Portsmouth). The discrepancies in Amelia's age and birthplace compared with 1881 make one wonder if it was the same woman. The IGI does not help to identify when and where Amelia was born.

      1901 census: at 2 Parkville Road, Fulham, William (63, hot water fitter) and Amelia (52, born Devonport).
