      March 2010: Chris Goddard's family tree at www.webrarian.co.uk/phpGedView establishes a link between Edward John Minter and Charles Minter bap. 9 May 1843 of the Ash group. The link is complicated and I haven't checked that it all works but it goes like this:

      1.The wife of Charles Minter (of the Ash, Kent group) was Ann Elizabeth MILTON.
      2. Ann's paternal grandfather was John MILTON, born Essex about 1801 or 1802.
      3. John MILTON had a brother, Joseph MILTON, born Essex about 1811 or 1812.
      4. Joseph MILTON had a daughter, Louisa Elizabeth MILTON, born Barking, Essex 1845.
      5. Louisa Elizabeth MILTON married Edward HARVEY in Barking in 1867.
      6. Edward HARVEY was the son of Thomas HARVEY and the brother of Fred HARVEY, born Brightlingsea, Essex on 29 Jan 1865.
      7. Fred HARVEY married Harriet Goodrum MASON on 4 Jan 1885 in London.
      8. Harriet Goodrum MASON had a brother, James MASON, born Wivenhoe, Essex 1849.
      9. James MASON married Ellen Mary OAKLEY on 4 Nov 1872 in Wivenhoe.
      10. Ellen Mary OAKLEY's father was Robert James OAKLEY, born Wivenhoe on 17 Jul 1816.
      11. Robert James OAKLEY had a sister Sarah Abbott OAKLEY, baptised 29 Jul 1821 at Wivenhoe.
      12. Sarah Abbott OAKLEY married Francis Solomon Lappage LILLEY on 7 May 1844 in Wivenhoe.
      13. Francis and Sarah had a daughter Frances Ann LILLEY on 13 Dec 1847.
      14. Frances Ann LILLEY married Edward John Minter (of the Brightlingsea, Essex group) on 1 Oct 1872 at Wivenhoe.

      September 2010: from James Earley:
      "After consulting my Grandfather I have found out some more information. It's with regards to his grandfather Edward John Minter (EJM) 1848-1932 and in particular his will. This is an extract from a visit to brightlingsea by Edward Frank Minter which he wrote.

      EJM was a draper and the church was his part time activity.

      Fountain House, New Street, Brightlingsea was home to EJM and was left by him to his single daughter Ada. Ada was believed to have been left more money than her brothers and sisters. The house was allowed to get in to disrepair by Ada. When EFM visited various times between 1945-50 he was concerned. The house was sold and Ada moved into a bungalow which on her death was disposed of and the balance of the estate was shared between her nine nephews and nieces."
