This page lists people who appear in Parish Registers, censuses etc who cannot be associated with any of the families mentioned elsewhere in this site. As much information as has been found  is given. The order is alphabetical according to the name of the most senior person mentioned. For a variety of reasons, including for example census enumerators' errors, it's not possible to be certain that everyone listed here was actually a Minter.

Interspersed among the list are a few individuals whose first names include the name Minter. These have emerged from research started in November 2009 into the London Metropolitan Archive at Use of Minter as a first name might indicate a connection with one of the Minter families but inclusion in this list means that the connection hasn't been made.

If you can help to find a home for anyone listed in this section please contact John Minter.

Ann Minter (born c. 1820, London)
The 1891 census has an indistinct entry which looks like Ann Minter, 71, widow, a patient at Haggerston, Shoreditch, London. Her death was probably that recorded at Shoreditch in Q1 1896 (1c/95), aged 74.

Ann Minter (born c. 1827)
Ann, 14, an apprentice milliner not born in Kent, is in the 1841 census in Queen Street, Ramsgate, Kent (living with Ann Wilkinson and her children).

Ann Minter AYERS (born c. 1825, Yarmouth, Norfolk)
Ann was the daughter of Robert AYERS, a rope maker; she married James COLE on 9 April 1857 at Trinity Church, St Marylebone, London. James and Ann appear in the 1871 census in St Pancras together with four children and Ann's elder sister Maria AYERS. One of the children was named Maria Minter COLE: she married Edward Martin Smith at St James, Clerkenwell on 29 May 1882.
Another of James and Ann's children, James, became a butcher, got married and had a family. One of his children inherited the Minter name - Marie Minter COLE's birth was registered in Q4 1888 at Holborn and she married on 21 November 1915, Ernest FAULKNER.

Anna Minter (born c. 1798, Canterbury, Kent)
Anna (or perhaps it was Hannah) was a cook, unmarried, aged 53 at Upper Newlands Farm, Teynham, Kent in the 1851 census.

Anne Minter (born c. 1816)
Anne, 25, a milliner, born outside Middlesex, is in the 1841 census in High Street, St Mary Whitechapel, London.

As a 42 year-old widow, Anne, a cook appears in the 1861 census at 26 St George's Terrace, St Mary Bredin, Canterbury, Kent.

Betsy Minter (born c. 1821, Lewisham, Kent)
Betsy, 40, unmarried, appears in the 1861 census as a servant at 9/10 Napoleon the Third Street, St Leonards Shoreditch, London. In 1843 an Elizabeth Betsy Minter, born about 1819, was sentenced at Middlesex to 3 months in prison for 'larceny by servant'. This may or may not relate to this Elizabeth (Betsy) Minter.

Bridget Minter (born c. 1787, Herefordshire)
The 1861 census includes Bridget, a 74 year-old widow, living at 40 Nilson Street, St Anne Limehouse, London with her daughter Ann Garvie, 42, builder's widow, born Herefordshire, and Ann's  12 year-old niece Una Wagstaff who was born in Mile End, London.

Charles Minter (born c. 1830, Kent)
See Sarah Minter (born c. 1836, Kent).

Charles George Brown Minter (born Q4 1881, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk)
Charles's birth was registered as Charles George Brown Minter. He appeared in the 1891 census as a pupil, aged 8, in the Great Yarmouth Workhouse. He has not been found in the 1901 census. He married Alice Maud Hewett in Q3 1910 (Yarmouth 4b/46) and appeared with her in the 1911 census at 61 Palgrave Road, Great Yarmouth. They had a son, Charles J, in Q4 1910 (Yarmouth 4b/25) who died the same quarter (Yarmouth 4b/14). Charles himself died aged 32 in Q2 1914 (Yarmouth 4b/25) and his widow remarried in Q2 1915 (Yarmouth 4b/57) to Charles E Shalders. There is no mother's maiden name on the enhanced GRO birth index which suggests that Charles was illegitimate. His marriage certificate might show who his father was but has not been obtained.
Charles apears to have received a good education - the National School Admission Registers & Log-books 1870-1914 at have four entries for him:
- from 18 Jun 1888 to 22 Feb 1889 at Northgate Infants School, Great Yarmouth
- from 15 May 1889 to 20 Dec 1889 at Northgate Boys School, Great Yarmouth
- from 18 Nov 1889 to 12 Oct 1893 (left town) at Northgate Boys School, Great Yarmouth
- from 17 Apr 1890 to 26 Jul 1894 (left town) at Northgate Boys School, Great Yarmouth
These entries are consistent in showing Charles was from the Workhouse and that his parents' names were either not known or withheld.

Charlotte Minter (born c. 1826, Kent)
The 1841 census has Charlotte, 15, a servant in Northwood, St Lawrence, Kent.

Charlotte Minter (born c. 1854, Kent)

Christian Minter (dates of birth & death unknown, probably of Folkestone, Kent)
Christian was made a Freeman of Dover as a grocer by apprenticeship on 10 September 1824.

Daniel Minter (born 1778, Ipswich, Suffolk)
According to the IGI Daniel was born on 8 February 1778 and baptised on 10 April 1778 at Tacket Street, Ipswich, son of Daniel Minter (who another IGI entry suggests may have been born in Essex about 1754) and Susanna. Susanna was probably Susannah Norman who married a Daniel Minter on 14 April 1774 at Mistley, Essex.
Daniel junior probably had two sisters, Susannah born 24 July 1775, baptised 31 August 1775 at Ipswich, and Hannah born on 6 January 1777 and baptised on 30 January 1777 at Ipswich.
Daniel appears in the 1841 census in East Hill, St James Colchester, Essex: he was 63, a carter. His wife Anne Minter was 55. Neither were Essex-born. Their marriage took place in Elmstead, Essex on 28 February 1837 (Stella Herbert, April 2009). The 1851 census records that Daniel, 73, and Anne, 74 (she aged quickly!) lived in an Alms House in Fingringhoe Road, Colchester. Daniel died, aged 79, in Q2 1857 (Colchester 4a/136).

Daniel Minter (born c. 1821)
In the 1841 census Daniel, 20 appears as a smith's labourer in East Greenwich, Kent. He wasn't born in Kent.

David Minter (born c. 1826, Holland)

Edward Minter (dates of birth & death unknown, probably of Folkestone, Kent)
Edward, a bachelor, married Jemima Marsh, a spinster of St Mary, Dover on 15 August 1825 at St Mary, Dover.

Edward Minter (date of birth unknown, Canterbury, Kent)
As a cordwainer, Edward was admitted by marriage as a Freeman of Canterbury on 15 June 1826. He was listed in the Dover Polls of 1828 and 1830 and married Elizabeth Moon, daughter of James Moon. He was probably the shoemaker of Monastery Street, Canterbury in 1834 and died on 25 May 1834 after a severe illness.

Edward Minter (born c. 1796, Greenhithe or Swanscombe, Kent)
Edward was a mariner, 56, when he appeared in the 1851 census with his wife Sarah, 53, born Trimley, Suffolk, living in Lower Dovercourt, Essex. In 1861 Edward, 66, was the master of the 'Peter and Mary' a 34 ton ship registered at Harwich and moored on census night at Whitefriars, London; Sarah, 63, was living at 7 Bathside, St Nicholas, Harwich. In 1871 Edward, 75 and now retired, lived with Sarah, 73, at 22 Bathside, Harwich. By 1881 Edward had died (aged 80, in Q1 1877 (Tendring 4a/187) and Sarah, 82 a widow, lived in Brighton as the mother of Mary Parker**, 51 a widow, shirt maker, born Harwich, and her daughter Adelaide Parker whose birth was registered in Q4 1865 (Brighton 2b/211). Sarah Minter's death at 86 was registered in Q4 1884 in Brighton (2b/160).

Edward and Sarah were married on 10 February 1840 at the Parish Church in Dovercourt, Essex (copy of marriage certificate held - Q1 1840, Tendring 12/333). Edward was of full age, a bachelor mariner of Harwich, father James Minter, also a mariner. Sarah was Sarah Sarjeant, of full age, a widow of Harwich; her father was William Kelly, a husbandman. Sarah appears in the 1841 census living on the East Sise, Church Street, St Nicholas, Harwich. Her age is shown as 40 and she had with her three children from her first marriage: Elizabeth Serjeant (14), Mary Sarjeant (12) and William Serjeant (10). ** Mary Serjeant is assumed to be the Mary Parker with whom Sarah Minter was living in 1881. Sarah's husband was presumably at sea when the 1841 census was taken.

Knowing that Edward's father's name was James Minter has not unfortunately made it possible to determine Edward's ancestry.

Edward Minter (born c. 1810, Pancras, London)
Aged 71, a labourer, Edward was in the St Pancras Workhouse in 1881.

Edward Minter (born c. 1826, Kent)

Edward Minter (born c. 1873, London)
Aged 28, a barman, Edward lived in 1901 at 88 St John's Road, Shoreditch, London.

Edward Henry Minter (born 8 March 1908, Kennington, London)
Edward Henry's birth certificate shows he was born at 132 Farmers Road, Kennington. His father was named as Edward John Minter, a builder's labourer, and his mother as Alice Beatrice Minter formerly Everitt. Alice registered the birth on 14 April 1908 giving her address as 132 Farmers Road. Despite extensive searching none of this information has revealed the identity of Edward John Minter. There were two Edward John Minters alive in 1908 but both would have been in their sixties by then and neither seems likely to have been Edward Henry's father.

Edwin Minter (born c. 1813,Lynn, Norfolk)
Edwin, 38, a machiner (?) appears in the 1851 census at 6 Goldsmiths Row, St Bride, London with his wife Harriet, 37 and daughter Harriet, 3, both born Lynn, Norfolk.

Edwin William Stephen Minter
Edwin's existence has come to light via records in's British India Office Ecclesiastical Returns collection. His birth hasn't been found but he married Helen Croll on 14 May 1838 in Bombay. Both parties were living in Bombay and Helen said she was a member of the Church of Scotland. The witnesses at the wedding were Daniel Buchanan session clerk of the church and William Field, a servant on board the ship 'Seven'. Edwin and Helen had three children in Bombay:
- Sarah Susannah Minter, born at Fort George, Bombay on 22 Feb 1839, baptised on 7 April 1839. Sarah, of full age, spinster, married Daniel Ebenezer Gostling, 24, bachelor, architect of Fort, Bombay on 6 November 1866.
- Jane Caroline Minter, buried at St Andrews Church, Bombay on 27 November 1840, aged 7 days.
- James Edwin Minter, born 25 November 1842, baptised 1 January 1843 at St Thomas's Cathedral, Bombay; his father was said to be an assistant to Messers Woolen & Co. This company appeared as a subscriber in the list of the Honorable East India Company's civil servants from 1780 to 1838, but nothing else has been found about it.
Edwin must have died some time between 1842 and 1848: Helen Minter nee Croll, a widow, married Thomas Herne on 28 December 1848 at Poona, India.

Eliza Minter (born c. 1841)
See Ann Minter (born c. 1821, Sussex)

Elizabeth Minter married Daniel Moate on 27 September 1670 at Elmstone, Kent.

Elizabeth Minter married by license as a spinster of Elmstone, Kent on 12 January 1696/97 at St Martins, Canterbury, Edward Gibbs a bachelor of Elmstone.

Elizabeth Minter (born c. 1816, Suffolk)

Elizabeth Minter (born c. 1869, Waterford, Ireland)
The 1901 census shows Elizabeth, 32, married, a tailoress, living by herself at 5 Browns Yard, Colchester, Essex; she was born in Waterford, Ireland. Elizabeth also appears, at the same address, in the 1911 census; she said she had been married 16 years, was working at home, gave her age as 43 and had a boarder, 41 year-old Thomas Eley. It's possible that Elizabeth was Elizabeth Hemsley who married a Samuel Minter in Q3 1895 at Colchester - this date would tie up with Elizabeth's 1911 statement that she had been married 16 years. Samuel may have been the 20 year-old private who in 1891 was in the Norfolk Regiment at St Botolph, Colchester, having been born in Rackheath, Norfolk: his ancestry has not been established. Elizabeth's death may have been that registered at age 43 in Q2 1911 at Colchester (4a/351).

Elizabeth Minter (born c. 1883, Wood Enderby, Lincolnshire)
If Elizabeth was definitely named Minter, she would be unusual in that she was born in Lincolnshire. She appears in the 1901 census as a housemaid at the Manor House, Scamblesby, Lincs, aged 18.

Elizabeth Dorothy Minter (born 11 November 1912 at 79 Aldenham Street, St Pancras, London)
Elizabeth's birth certificate shows her father as Frank Minter, a hotel waiter, and her mother as Dorothy Minter formerly Martin. Despite extensive searching the identity of Frank Minter hasn't been established. Elizabeth married Hubert Frederick Colombo in Q3 1930 (St Martin 1a/1530) and appeared in the 1939 Register with him and a daughter, Joan, living in East Barnet, Herts. Elizabeth's death was registered in Q2 1983 at Southend on Sea (9/2798).

Ellen Minter (born c. 1810, Colchester, Essex)
The 1851 census shows Ellen, 41, a servant, marital status not stated, at 3 Guildford Place, St Pancras, London.

Emma Minter (born c. 1831, Rochester, Kent)
See Harry Minter (born between 1841 and 1848, Maidstone, Kent).

Emma Minter (born c. 1881, London)
Emma was a domestic servant at 77 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, London in 1901, aged 20.

Ernest (Joseph) Minter (born Q1 1922, Keighley, Yorkshire)
Ernest was registered at Keighley (9a/297) as both Ernest Minter and Ernest Connaughton. His mother Annie Snape (born Q2 1891 Blackburn 8e/384) married John Connaughton at Keighley (9a/414) in Q2 1916; John died aged 27 in Q4 1918 (Keighley 9a/449) not long after his son John T Connaughton was born (birth registered at York (9d/29) in Q3 1918, death in Q2 1975 at Poplar and Bethnal Green (14/1461)). John's widow Annie must have had a relationship with someone else, resulting in Ernest's birth but the identity of this person hasn't been established. Annie married again, to James Fenn, in Q1 1923 (Keighley 9a/347). The 1939 Register shows James and Annie at 55 North Dean Road, Keighley, Yorkshire. James's birth date is shown as 4 July 1885, Annie's as 29 April 1896 (sic). He was an iron foundry labourer, she a scrubber in a laundry. There's also a closed record which may relate to Ernest. Ernest's death was probably that registered (as Ernest Joseph, born 31 January 1922) in September 2013 at Lincolnshire RD (6091K/509068163).

Ernest Henry Minter (born 9 April 1871, Dover, Kent)
Ernest Henry's birth at 36 York Street, Dover, was registered as Ernest Henry Minter by his mother on 20 May 1871. She gave her name as Mary Minter formerly Elgar, and the father as Henry Minter, described as a seaman in the Royal Navy serving on HM Ship Queen Mary. Despite extensive searching I've been unable to find such a Henry Minter or a Royal Navy ship named Queen Mary (prior to the battleship of that name launched in 1912). Census entries for 1871 and later years make me wonder whether "Henry Minter" ever actually existed. In the entries below, Mary Elgar is always described as a widow but I've been unable to find a marriage that might relate to her; her death at age 47 was registered in Q1 1900 at Dover.
1871 census: at 24 York Street, Dover, Mary Ann Fagg (head, widow, 35, laundress, born Deal), Mary Elgar (lodger, widow, 25, dressmaker, born Staplehurst) and Percy Elgar (son, 2, scholar, born Staplehurst)
1881 census: at 4 Tower Hill, Charlton, Kent, Mary Elgar (head, widow, 30, dom serv (cook), born Staple near Canterbury), Percy Elgar (son, 12, scholar, born Staple near Canterbury) and Ernest Elgar (son, 9, scholar, born Dover)
1891 census: at 4 Tower Hill, Charlton, Kent, Mary Elgar (head, widow, 40, laundress, born Staple in Deal) and Ernest H Elgar (son, 20, engine driver, born Dover)
Ernest Henry Elgar married Florence Emily Pickett in Q2 1891 and appeared with her and a number of children in the 1901, 1911 and 1921 censuses.
Ernest Henry Elgar's death was probably that registered, age 69, in Q2 1939 at Eastry.

Esther Minter (born c. 1838 or 1858, Lambeth, London)
See John Minter (born c. 1815, Clapham).

Ethel Minter (born c. 1875, possibly in Soho, London)
The entry for Ethel in the 1891 looks like Minter but could be Mintee. She was a domestic servant at 8 Forward Street in Torquay, Devon. Her age is shown as 6 but was interpreted by the census people as 16 and her birthplace looks like 'NK Soho'.

Fanny Minter (born c. 1820, Snape, Suffolk)
The 1851 census shows Fanny, 31 as a visitor with Warren Sharman and family in Snape. This may be the same person who in 1841 was living on independent means, age 21 in St Matthew Street, St Matthew Ipswich, Suffolk. Fanny Minter's death was registered in Q3 1852 (Plomesgate 4a/393) and, according to, she was buried in Snape, Suffolk on 3 July 1851, aged 32.

Fanny Minter (born c. 1830, Boughton Blean, Kent)
Fanny appears in the 1901 census at Town Place, Throwley, Kent as a temporary domestic help. She was 71 and a widow. Fanny also appears in the 1911 census, aged 82, doing sewing at home, lodging at 10 Vicarage Street, Faversham, Kent. Her death was registered at age 83 in Q2 1912 at Faversham (2a/1050).

Florence Emily E Minter (born c. 1882, Clapham, London)
Florence Emily E Minter married Francis John Hall in Q1 1905 (Hendon 3a/372). As Emily Hall (aged 29, married 6 years), Florence appeared in the 1911 census living at 34 Telford Road, Hendon, London NW with husband Francis (27, a general labourer at a railway company) and 4 children. The births of the children were all registered at Hendon: Frances Mary (Q4 1905, mother's maiden name MINSTER); William John (Q1 1907, mother's maiden name WINTER); Winifred Ethel (Q1 1908, mother's maiden name SCAMMELL); Hilda May (Q3 1910, mother's maiden name MINSTER). Another child, Joseph H, was born in Q2 1912, mother's maiden name MINSTER. Florence's death (as Florence E Hall, aged 43) was recorded at Hendon in Q3 1925.
No trace of Florence's birth has been found under Minter, Minster or Scammell. It seems strange that her name should have been recorded as Minster when 3 of her children were registered. A couple of public member trees at Ancestry show Florence's parents as Thomas Wood Minter of Whitstable, Kent and his second wife Mary Pounder but this seems extremely unlikely and there's no evidence that she was their child, unless she was adopted.

Frances Minter (born c. 1814, Brentwood, Essex)
Frances appears in the 1851 census as a household servant, unmarried, aged 37 at 9 Charter(?) Terrace, St Pancras, London.

Francis William Sylvester Minter (born Q2 1853, Essex)
Francis' birth was registered at Sudbury in Q2 1853. He was baptised at Marks Tey, Essex on 29 May 1853 and died aged 1 on 15 May 1854 at Marks Tey. His mother was Elizabeth Minter, a servant.

Frank Minter (born c. 1870, Peckham, London)
Frank appears, aged 21, unmarried, a painter, as a boarder at 'Crewys House', Crewys Road, Camberwell in the 1891 census. The 1881 entry for Frank Minter, 11, pauper inmate 'son of a Customs House Officer' in the Camberwell Workhouse may refer to him although the birthplace for this entry is given as Forest Gate, Essex.

Frederick Minter (born c. 1848, Canterbury, Kent)
Frederick makes his sole appearance as a 43 year-old convict in Portsmouth Prison in 1891. His occupation was given as farm labourer.

Frederick George Minter (born 1891, Gosport, Hampshire)
Corporal Frederick George Minter died on 14 December 1917, a casualty of WW1 and is remembered at the La Plus Douve Farm Cemetery, not far from Ypres, Belgium.

However, George was actually W C Cooke, son of Thomas Giles Cooke and his wife Harriet Maria Cooke of Faraday Street, Walworth, London. It's not known how the name Minter came about. See also Frederick George Minter who died on 14 December 1917.

Harry, 20, a coachman, is in the 1841 census in High Street, New Brentford, Middlesex.

Harry Minter (born between 1841 and 1848, Maidstone, Kent)
Harry seems to appear out of nowhere and has been found first in the 1871 census living at 81 Lorrimore Road, St Mary Newington, London; his age was given as 23 and he was a commercial clerk (biscuits). At the time his wife-to-be, Emma Lewis (born in Rochester, Kent), was living at 2 Athol Terrace, Camberwell, London with her husband Henry Lewis (born about 1851, Ashford, Kent) and their five children, Harry (20), Percival (17), Kate (16), Bertha (12) and Russell (8). All the children were born in Maidstone, Kent. Henry Lewis died in Q4 1871, aged 51 (Camberwell 1d/497).
Emma married Harry Minter in Q4 1874 (Lewisham 1d/1313). The Parish Register entry for the marriage (in the London Metropolitan Archive at, October 2009) shows Harry's father as Harry Minter, engineer, but this hasn't helped. In 1881 Harry and Emma were living at 4 George Lane, Lewisham, Kent. Harry's age was given as 40: he was a commercial traveller (biscuits). Emma was said to be 45. Living with them was Emma's son Harry Lewis, 28 a clerk for a wholesale draper. In the house next door, 3 George Lane, Emma's daughter Kate (26) was living with her husband George H Cain (31, a merchant's commercial clerk, born Clerkenwell, London) and their son George R L Cain (4, born Lewisham), and her married sister Bertha Congdon (23) and her three children Abel (2), Bertha (3) (both born in Wrington, Somerset) and Maggie (1 month, born Lewisham).
Harry died, aged 46, on 9 May 1881 at Bungay, Suffolk (Q2 1881 Wangford 4a/462). shows that Harry was buried on 14 May 1881 in Ladywell Cemetery (Lewisham). Administration (with the Will) of his personal estate, just over £993, was granted to his widow Emma on 23 July 1881 (source National Probate Calendar at Emma's address at the time was Gable Cottage, George Lane, Lewisham.
In 1891 Emma, now a 60 year-old widow living on her own means, lived at 3 Priory Villas, Lewisham, Kent. She was noted as the mother-in-law of George Cain (14, scholar). Emma hasn't been found in the 1901 census: she died in 1895 - the death of an Emma Minter, aged 64, was registered in Q1 1895 (Wandsworth 1d/629). shows that Emma was buried on 19 March 1895 in Ladywell Cemetery (Lewisham). A death notice appeared in The Times on 16 March 1895: "on the 14th March at 9 Tankerville-road, Streatham, Emma, widow of the late Harry Minter, aged 65, deeply mourned by her loving children."

The IGI says Henry Minter FYFFE was born at Dr Williams Library, London, and baptised on 19 July 1787 at Spa Fields Lady Huntingdons, Clerkenwell, London. The same source indicates that Henry and Elizabeth had two children in 1797 and 1798 named Minter Weales FYFFE, both of whom died in infancy.
Henry Minter Fyffe married Eliza STANTON on 13 April 1820 at St Mary, Islington, London and had several children including, it would seem from the 1861 census, at which time the family lived in Perth House, Linslade, Bucks, a daughter called Minter W FYFFE (but this isn't born out by later information, indeed the daughter appears as Marion in 1871, but it's interesting to speculate whether the name was a throwback to the two infants who died). Henry and Eliza also had a son Thomas Brace FYFFE, who married Elizabeth IMPEY on 29 December 1851, giving his father's name as Henry Minter FYFFE.

Joseph Minter TAYLOR (born 9 July 1833, Rotherhithe, London)
Joseph was born in Rotherhithe and baptised at St Mary, Rotherhithe on 11 August 1833. His parents were William and Elizabeth TAYLOR. Joseph was a shipwright by the age of 17 and in 1851 lived with his brother in Deptford, London. As a widower he married Jane COMAN, who was born in Jersey, CI, on 5 March 1860 at St Giles, Camberwell and in 1861 lived with Jane and son William in Barking, Essex. Joseph's first marriage was registered in Q1 1856 at Strand, to either Emma CASTON or Clara Augusta AYRES.

Further research reveals that Joseph was the son of William and Elizabeth Taylor. In 1841 they were living in Rotherhithe Street, Rotherhithe:
William, 50, shipwright; Elizabeth, 45; Samuel, 20; Benjamin, 15; Elizabeth, 13; Lydia, 10 and Joseph, 7. All were born in Surrey except for William.
These children and another, Sarah, were all baptised at St Mary Rotherhithe:
Sarah: born 4 Mar 1814, bap. 27 Mar 1814, daughter of William & Elizabeth, Lavender Lane, shipwright.
Samuel: born 3 May 1818, bap. 6 Jun 1818, son of William & Elizabeth, Lavender Lane, shipwright.
Benjamin: born 2 May 1822, bap. 2 Jun 1822, son of William & Elizabeth, Lavender Lane, shipwright.
Elizabeth: born 10 Sep 1825, bap. 9 Oct 1825, daughter of William & Elizabeth, Lavender Lane, shipwright.
Lydia: born 1 Mar 1828, bap. 30 Mar 1828, daughter of William & Elizabeth, Lavender Lane, shipwright. Lydia was buried age 20 of Lower Queen Street, Rotherhithe, on 23 May 1848.
Joseph Minter: born 9 Jul 1833, bap. 11 Aug 1833, son of William & Elizabeth, Rotherhithe Street, shipwright.
The brother with whom Joseph Minter Taylor was living in 1851 may have been:
William Taylor, bap. on 24 Oct 1817 (the date is unclear) at St James, Piccadilly, son of William & Elizabeth of Leicester Street, carpenter.
The parents of these children were probably William Taylor and Elizabeth Oram, who married by banns at St Mary Rotherhithe on 4 Jun 1811. Elizabeth Oram was baptised at the same place on 25 Sep 1791, the daughter of Samuel and Christian Cecilia Oram. William, aged 57 of Lower Queen Street, shipwright, was buried at St Mary Rotherhithe on 11 May 1845.
None of the above gives any indication of why Joseph Minter Taylor's middle name was Minter. Joseph's marriage to Jane Coman produced another Joseph Minter Taylor in 1874: he married and a third Joseph Minter Taylor was born in 1904.

An interesting sidelight on this story is that in 2011 Craig Shand emailed saying that his grandfather Stan Shand owns a bible in which are inscribed details of Joseph Minter Taylor's 1860 marriage to Jane Coman together with the dates of baptism of their children, William, Louisa, Henry, Eleanor, George, Ralph Westall and Joseph Minter Taylor. The bible also records the death of Joseph Minter Taylor senior on 19 June 1897, number of grave 23561. An inscription reads 'Presented to Mr Joseph Minter Taylor by his affectionate brother Ralph Westall Walker Christmas 1879. In memory of his dear son Ralph Taylor Walker. [signed] Ralph Westall Walker'. The appearance of the surname 'Walker' isn't explained.

Louisa appears in the 1881 census, married, age 22, living at 45 Conroy Street, Lambeth, London with her mother, a 39 year-old widow called Louisa Yarwold, a nurse born in Ramsgate. Also there were Thomas Yarwold (19, a printer born in Hackney), Richard W Yarwold (12, scholar, born in Westminster) and George T Yarwold (9, scholar, born in Westminster).
