    • The identity of George as the senior member of this group was established in February 2011 by Cliff Minter.

      George's date of birth is a guess based on the idea that he would have been, say, 25 when his first son was baptised. He was buried in 1657: ' Mintor an old man of Ellmstoan Coort but formarly of Ash was buryed in Ash'. If he was indeed born about 1577 he'd have been 80 when he died.

      George was a sideman at Ash next Sandwich during 1617. He held 5 acres of marsh land in the Kent parish of Chislet in 1630. He gave bond as a yeoman of Ash, Kent on 1 October 1635 at the issue of the license for marriage of Henry Minter (his son) at St Mary Magdalene, Canterbury.

      The name of George's wife hasn't been found by Cliff Minter. The Ash Family Reconstitution Forms supplied by Cally Schneider in December 2012 have George marrying Ellener or Helene (surname not given) in about 1602, but this has not been otherwise verified.

      The Ash Family Reconstitution Forms include the following comments. It's not clear what some of the comments mean.
      - M name not given on any of the childrens' baptism entries.
      - George was bondsman for marriage for son Henry. [This confirms the statement contained in paragraph 1 above].
      - Henry and (second) son George: 1642/protestation
      - Wife: Canterbury Consistory Court J.J.20.81/excom
      - George: Canterbury Consistory Court J.J.39.179
      - George: Churchwarden's accounts/1625/27acres and tenement/1635/nil
      - George:Churchwarden's accounts/Hoden/1640/37acres/1645/24acres/1649/25acres/1653/nil.
