    Notes 
    • There is no trace of the birth of William's children. In 1841, a Jonathan Minter and his wife were living in the same street as William and his family.

      1841 census: in North Street, St Peter Colchester, Essex, William (49, carpenter), Hannah (49), Edward (18, carpenter), Hannah (16) and William (14).

      London Gazette 24 December 1844:
      WHEREAS the Commissioner acting in the prosecution of a Fiat in Bankruptcy awarded and issued forth against William Minter, of Colchester, in the county of Essex, Builder and Innkeeper, Dealer and Chapman, hath certified to the Judge of the Court of Review in Bankruptcy, that the said William Minter hath in all things conformed himself according to the directions of the Acts of Parliament made and now in force concerning bankrupts; this is to give notice, that, by virtue of an Act, passed in the fifth and sixth years of the reign of Her present Majesty Queen Victoria, intituled " An Act for the amendment of the law in bankruptcy," the Certificate of the said William Minter will be allowed and confirmed by the Court of Review in Bankruptcy, unless cause be shewn to the said Court to the contrary, on or before the 14th day of January 1845.

      Appered in Kelly's Post Office Directory, 1845 as a carpenter in North Street, Colchester.

      1851 census: in North Street, St Peter Colchester, Essex, William (widower, 58, inn keeper, born Boxted) and daughter Maria [Hannah Maria] (25, housekeeper, born Colchester).

      Appeared in Kelly's Directory 1855 as W Minter, carpenter, North Bridge, Colchester.

      It's possible that William married for a second time in 1856. The entry in the marriage register for the marriage on 21 July at St Pancras Church was between a William Minter, full age, widower, carpenter of Grafton Street, St Pancras, father Edward Minter, dead, and Harriett Manning, full age, widow of Grafton Street, St Pancras, father Thomas Cook (poss. Cock), dead.
      The death of a Harriet Minter was registered in Q2 1860 in Colchester.
      The only question that throws some doubt on the 1856 marriage being William's is that it took place in London. But for the time being it's being assumed that it was indeed his marriage.

      1861 census: in Provident Place, St Peter Colchester, Essex, William (widower, 69, carpenter) plus a boarder, John SLANEY (46, superannuated from Excise, born Lexden, Essex).
