    Notes 
    • 1851 census: Thomas, 20, was living at Old London Road, Great Horkesley, a farm labourer.

      1861 census: in Brick Kiln Lane, Great Horkesley, Thomas (30, ag labr), Sarah Ann (32), Charles (7, scholar), Henry (4, scholar) and Mary Ann (11 months).

      1871 census; in The Causeway, Great Horkesley, Thomas (40, ag lab), Sarahann (42), George H (14, ag lab), Mary Ann (10, scholar), Sarah Ann (8, scholar) and Thomas W (4).

      In 1881 Thomas (50, agricultural labourer) and Sarah Ann (52) were living at 36 Hall Lane, Great Horkesley with 3 of their children, Mary Ann (20, domestic servant), Thomas William (15, agricultural labourer) and Rose E. (7). There is no trace of (George) Henry or Sarah Ann junior but a Charles Minter of the right age was boarding with the Gay family at 13 Merritt Road, Lewisham, Kent.

      Thanks to Geoff Dobson (who is related to the Minters through his mother) the following article from the Chelmsford Chronicle of 1 January 1897 explains Thomas's death:
      "FOUND IN A DITCH AT HORKESLEY
      About six p.m. on Christmas Day a stockman named Thomas Minter, of Great Horkesley, was found dead in a ditch some distance from his home. There was water in the ditch, but no indication of how the man got there. Deceased was 66 years of age, and was subject to fits of giddiness. At an inquest the jury found that deceased fell accidentally into the ditch and was suffocated."

      In 1901 Sarah was still living at 36 Hall Lane, now a widow of 72. Her grandson Alfred (10) (son of Thomas William and Esther Minter) was living with her.
