    George Henry Minter 1856 - 1910
    Two newspaper reports found by Darren Bedingfield. Darren comments "The first may or may not refer to him [George Henry Minter] as being in a railway accident in 1907. He is merely referred to as "Minter, of Boxted, dealer" by the press report. The uncertainty arises over the fact all other documents of this period relate to him as living in Dedham, although, of course this could be due to an error on behalf of the reporters (he was, in fact, born here and lived there over 20 years) or he could have relocated there for time.
    The second relates to him whilst living in Langham along with wife Ellen where he was summonsed for not sending his daughter Alice to school and finding himself facing magistrates for the third occasion."
