(reproduced from Fred Stentiford's Boyton history website)

Jesse Minter

from Chris Malyan and Stuart Lee

An early photo of Jesse and his wife Rosanna nee Hazelwood, born about 1872

Jesse and Rosanna later in life.

A later picture of Jesse and Rosanna. The picture of Jesse was
originally provided by Chris Malyan but was found by Stuart Lee
in a photo album, paired with the photo of Rosanna.

The above was supplied by Helen Brown and was
originally published on 19 October 1951 in the Cambridge
Independent Press and Chronicle. The date of marriage is given as October 19 1891 - they actually married in 1892 so either the newspaper got the date wrong or Jesse and Rosanna celebrated their diamond wedding a year early.

Victor Minter, born 1900,
son of Jesse and Rosanna Minter

Victor was a casualty of WW1. He died aged 18 while serving in
The Queen's (Royal West Surrey Regiment), 51st Bn.

From a Leicester newspaper of 1940. The reference to 'twice married, and has had 18 children' is incorrect.

Arthur George William Minter

This picture, supplied by Pearl Kedge, was taken about 1900. It is apparently of four aunts of Arthur George William Minter. They all originated from Boyton and were believed to have lived in Turners Place, Ipswich.
The names of the ladies in the picture are unknown. If you can help to identify them please contact John Minter.

The Stebbing family
The Stebbings are related to the Minters via the 1857 marriage between Elizabeth Minter and James Stebbing. These pictures were provided by Janet Tidman.

John Wesley Stebbing, known as Jack, son of James Stebbing and Elizabeth Minter, at work on the farm at Boyton.

Jack seated, with two of his sons behind - John Wesley, also known as Jack (1892-1978) on the left and William James (Bill) (1902-1986), on the right. Jack's uniform perhaps belongs to some sort of territorial force as he did not fight in the First World War, whereas his son Jack did fight in the trenches of the Western Front, where he was gassed.

Jack at the Mary Warner Almshouses, Boyton,
sometime after Alice's death.

Alice Lavinia Stebbing, nee Clarke

Below are two more pictures of members of the Stebbing family, provided by Angela Capon. The pictures show sisters of the above-mentioned William James (Bill) Stebbing.

The date of this picture isn't known. It shows, in the centre, Selina Caroline Stebbing, born 1885 (Angela Capon's grandmother), flanked by her twin sisters Retia and Phosia. Angela Capon comments "I don't know which twin is which I am afraid!".

This picture was taken on the occasion of Retia Stebbing's second marriage in 1960 to George A Mayhew. It shows, from left to right, Selina Stebbing's oldest daughter Emily May, Retia's twin sister Phosia, the groom George A Mayhew, the bride Retia and Selina Caroline Stebbing.
