982Looking for information on Michael Minton and family 1826-1836
- Oct 20, 2008Hi, Listers.
This is my first posting to the list. I am looking for information on
Michael Minton, his wife Grace Minton(nee Ridge). Married 11 August
1830 on St Helena Island. Their 3 daughters are Biddy b.1832,
Catherine b.1832 and Margaret b.1836. I am attempting to clarify if
Michael and Grace are my g/g/grandparents. I have printouts from the
India Office Family Search Database for the wedding and the first and
second daughter. Margaret was baptised in St.Paul's 6 Nov.1836. How
would I go about getting a record of this?
Michael Minton was dischcarged from the St.Helena Regiment in 1836.
From reading the history of the Island I am assuming that the family
made their way to the Cape and from there to Australia. How would I go
about finding out if there were more children born after leaving St.
Helena and before reaching Australia -between 1836-1840.? Are there
passenger lists available when folk left from the Cape?
Your help would be most appreciated
