You would think with such an unusual name it would be easy to get info on this family,

I found this in the 1901 the census was taken in Bromley  London

Theophilus Minky aged  65 born in Germany Head  

Louinia Minky aged 62  born in Poplar, London,  Wife

Emily Minky aged 19  born in Poplar, London,  Daughter    

and I think this is your chap in 1901 again census taken in Bromley  London

Theophillis Minkey aged 33  born in Poplar, London, England  

according to the image, he is still a widower and living in 126 Flint Street, and he is a Shipyard Labourer

Another Minkey Entry for the 1901 and again in Bromley

William Minkey aged 24  born in Poplar, London, Head  

Charlotte Minkey aged 24 born in  Poplar, London,  Wife    


1881 Poplar

Lavinia Minkey born abt 1840 in Poplar, Middlesex, Wife (Head)

Lavinia Minkey born abt 1864 in Poplar, Middlesex, Daughter  

Caroline Minkey born abt 1871 in Poplar, Middlesex,  Daughter

Ada Minkey born abt 1872  in Poplar, Middlesex,  Daughter  

Phoebe Minkey born abt 1874 in Poplar, Middlesex, Daughter

William Minkey born abt 1877  in Poplar, Middlesex,  Son      
  
Frederick Minkey born abt 1879 in  Poplar, Middlesex, Son    
    
Gertrude Osborne born abt 1881 in Poplar, Middlesex,  (no note as to relationship with family)


I also found this Marriage...  
 
MINKEY, Robert Theophilus
Quarter  End  September  1907 in Poplar  London Middlesex
Volume Number 1c
Page Number 888  

with a name like that he has to be connected :D

Will keep an eye out for any other connections

1901 Census

Source - RG13/348
Registration district - Poplar
Sub-registration district - Bromley
Folio - 109
Page - 18

William Minkey aged 24 Head Born Poplar
Charlotte Minkey aged 24 Wife Born Poplar

Must be Lavinia's Son and living at 20 Flint Street, just up the road from Theophilus, surely too much of a coincidence!

This has got to be them.
Does 1901 census give an occupation for Theophilus senior?
My Grandmother Maria Matthews used to talk about a Charlotte but Icould never match it to any of her immediate family.
Well done I think we've cracked it!
Matthews- St Geos/Farnham/Aldershot/Poplar
Lines - Friern Barnet/Luton
Mayston - Yarmouth/Poplar
Webb - Peckham/Camberwell
Chambers - Stepney/Poplar
Minkey - Poplar
Parrott - Aldershot/Hackney
Hussey - Poplar
Worrow - Poplar
White -Poplar

He's a shipyard Labourer, still trying to find Lavinia in 1901. :)

Have you tried

 http://www.GenesReunited.co.uk

There's an Annie Minkey there born 1917 in Poplar, might be worth a try.

Good luck, please let me know if you get to the bottom of/prove who's who.

Happy hunting

Just seen all messages about Theophilus Minkey. My father knew Theophilus Minkey senior when he was a very old man living in Poplar. He was a tailor and lived to nearly 100. He lived in old age with 2 daughters - unmarried I think.  Unfortunately I know nothing about next generation.
