    Notes 
    • A D B Minter appeared in the 1931 telephone directory at Coombe Hill Lodge, Wendover, Oxon, telephone Wendover 151. May or may not relate.

      Emigrated to Australia - the following appears in the National Archives of Australia:
      Minter, Denys Biron - wife Hilda Mary [nee Owen] and children Denys John Biron, Felicity Mary and Guy Dudley Biron - departed Tilbury on the TSS Mooltan on 23 December 1948 - arrived in Brisbane on 27 January 1949 (another record has the date as 21 January). March 2008: Gail Gniewosz reports that Denys and family were 'nominated immigrants to Australia 19/2/1948'.

      A Incoming Passenger Card in the National Archives of Australia shows Denys disembarking from the SS Mooltan at Brisbane on 5 February 1949. It showed his intention of remaining permanently in Australia. Same date is shown on daughter Felicity's card.
