    Notes 
    • 1881 census: at 55 Milton Road, Margate, Kent, Robert W (32, plasterer), Elizabeth (31, dressmaker), Caroline (3), Harry (2) and Mary (6 months).

      The birth of a Jenny Minter was registered at Thanet RD in Q4 1880, and a Jenny Minter was baptised in Margate on 6 July 1881, parents Robert and Elizabeth Minter. Jenny's death was registered in Q3 1881 at Thanet. This child was probably Robert William Minter's and, pending seeing a birth certificate that might prove otherwise, is included here.

      1891 census: Robert may have been in the 'District Job' at Hayes, Middlesex (married, 43, plasterer) but there's no trace of the rest of his family.

      1901 census (indexed under MUDER), at 55 Russell Road, Croydon, Surrey, Robert (53, plasterer), Elizabeth (52), Alice (80, widow, mother, born Wadhurst so probably Elizabeth's mother), Harry (22, plasterer), Robert (Robbert on the census sheet) (19, builder's labourer), Jennie (18), Frank (17), Fred (14) and Will (12).

      1911 census: at 122 Sydenham Road North, Croydon, Surrey (5 rooms), Robert (head, 63, married, plasterer, builder, worker, born Folkestone) Elizabeth (wife, 62, married 32 years, 7 children all living, born Hastings) and William (son, 21, carpenter, born Croydon).
      Form signed R Minter

      Altogether a rather shadowy family. There's no trace of a marriage between Robert and Elizabeth and the births of several of their children do no appear to have been registered. Robert Minter Junr. was registered as Thomas Robert: his mother's name is shown on the birth certificate as 'Betsey Minter formerly Knight'. At the time the family lived at 42 Crampton Road, Beckenham and Robert Snr. was a plasterer.
