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 Ancestry.co.uk. 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.

Alfred Minter (born 1883/1884, probably London)
The 1901 census has an entry for Alfred, a student in the Home for Homeless, Horton Kirby, Kent. His age looks like 17. An entry in the 1911 census for Alfred Minter, 27, formerly a tailor (repairer), born London (parish not known), an inmate in the Dartford Union Workhouse & Infirmary, probably refers to this Alfred. The birth registration in Q2 1883 (St Saviour Southwark 1d/115) and the death regstration at age 62 in Q1 1946 (Bromley 2a/1250) probably also refer to this Alfred. No 1891 census entry has been traced. The 1884 birth certificate should show Alfred's parents but hasn't been obtained.

Susanna was probably Susannah Norman who married a Daniel Minter on 14 April 1774 at Mistley, Essex.

Dorothy (spelled Doriethy) appears in the 1911 census, aged 9, born Clapham, as the adopted daughter of Henry William and Emma CLOW, 10 Emerson Place, Southwark, London. Dorothy's birth was probably that registered in Q4 1901, Lambeth 1d/404 and she was probably the Dorothy baptised at All Saints, South Lambeth on 1 November 1901 - parents shown as John and Louisa Minter, address 41 Jeffreys Road, Clapham. This was the address of the Clapham Maternity Home. The birth certificate should at least show who Dorothy's mother was. No other trace of Dorothy Minter (or of John and Louisa Minter) has been found but a Dorothy CLOW married Thomas W G COLLINS in Q2 1922 (Southwark 1d/23).

Dorothy Johanna Minter (London)
Dorothy married Gustav WOLFSOHN in Q4 1933 (Marylebone 1a/1495). The marriage was announced in The Times of London on 27 December 1933: "On Dec 24, 1933, very quietly, GUSTAV WOLFSOHN to DOROTHY J MINTER, 72 Priory Road, London NW6." Dorothy was probably the daughter of Wolfe and Clara MAINZER. When Clara died at 30 Greencroft Gardens, Hampstead, London on 4 June 1922 her death was registered at Hampstead (1a/720) under the names of both Minter and Mainzer. Details of her Will, proved at London on 16 August 1922, are in the England & Wales Probate Calendar under both names. Probate was granted to Daisy Caroline RITTENBERG (wife of Max Rittenenberg) and Dorothy Johanna Minter, spinster - almost certainly she who married in 1933. Clara's effects were stated as £1067 3s. Wolfe Mainzer died aged 89 in Q1 1942 (Kensington 1a/190).

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.

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)

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). No trace of Ernest has been found other than his birth.

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.

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.

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 Ancestry.co.uk, 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). 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 Ancestry.co.uk). 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 has not been found in the 1901 census: this may be because she died in 1895 - the death of an Emma Minter, aged 64, was registered in Q1 1895 (Wandsworth 1d/629). 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."

Henry Minter FYFFE (born 1787, Holborn, London)
According to http://newsarch.rootsweb.com/th/read/BEDFORD/1998-08/0903109514, Henry Minter FYFFE was born on 24 June 1787 and died on 30 May 1872, the son of Henry Fyffe (born 20 April 1755) and 99Elizabeth Young WEALES (born 26 December 1757, died 13 March 1808), who were married on 17 September 1786. 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.

John was buried age 56 as of High Street, Stoke Newington at West Hackney Church on 2 January 1842 (source London Metropolitan Archive at Ancestry.co.uk, October 2009; Q1 1841 Greenwich 5/204).

By 1861 Thomas was a widower, Eliza having (probably) died in Q1 1860 (Hackney 1b/245).

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 Minter (born c. 1859, Lambeth)
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). It seems that the correct name was Yarnold: the family appears in the 1861 and 1871 censuses as such. There is no sign of a marriage between Louisa Yarnold and a Minter.
