For their support and help with this research - sharing both ideas and material - I should like to thank Peck-Minter relatives Meryl Stanton, Tim Kendall, Stephanie Anderson and Patricia Selkirk. Paul Saban of the Rookery Medical Centre, Newmarket, Suffolk has contributed much to my understanding of the life and times of Robert James Peck, Ffloyd Minter Peck and Michael Minter in Newmarket in the first half of the nineteenth century. My thanks also to John Minter for inviting me to place this paper on his website, for his detailed editing and formatting expertise and sharing research on several individuals. My husband, Malcolm Skilbeck, has provided valuable comments on periodic drafts, and moral support at all times. Any errors and omissions in this text are my own responsibility.
