    Notes 
    • It's not clear where the name Vincer came from (although William's supposed aunt Elizabeth married a Vincer). No baptism has been found for William so we do not know whether he was baptised as William Vincer Minter but his second marriage and his death were registered as William Vincer Minter.

      1841 census: aged 20, possibly a male servant with Lord Ernest Bruce and his wife in Curzon Street, Mayfair, London.

      1850: a servant in Chelsea in May and a porter in Bath in August.

      An excellent article 'The Minter family and their work in workhouses across England' by Ed Grimsdale can be found at http://www.winslow-history.org.uk/winslow_families-minter.shtm
