MINCHINTON from Somerset and Dorset
« on: Tuesday 21 February 12 03:27 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I'm researching our family name, Minchinton, sometimes spelt Minchington, Minchenton or similar.
We live in Australia and I have come to a stop as I can't find any information from Yeovil and Yetminster, Somerset  and Chetnole in Dorset.
We are descendant's  of  James Minchinton born 1752 in Yeovil and Sarah Shears born 1764 in Somerset. Their son John born in Chetnole in 1796 then married Mary Ann Crocker born 1795 in Pulham Dorset.  Their son John born 1829 in Corsecombe, Dorset married Ellen Amelia Butler born 1835 in Falmouth immigrated to Australia and from there I have good records.
If you could help with any of the early history from Sommerset or Dorset I would  really appreciate it.
Regards,
Julie and Brian Minchinton

According to information from Dorset FHS, a James Minchinton and Sarah Shears were married at Stockwood Dorset 0n 10 December 1785.

According to your dates of birth for John and Sarah he would have been 14 and she 21. Is this correct or is there a typo in there somewhere? :)

Ah a modification of dates? Ok :)

HI, Thanks for the quick reply and also picking up my typo.
James was born in 1752, so that's better being married at 33
Sarah 1764, so 21 when married.
I will correct that mistake of mine right now.
Regards,
julie

Hi Julie
I have been searching but haven't found anymore than what you seem to already have. Is one of the trees on ancestry yours?

Hi Julie
I am in OZ, NSW :)

When I enter John Minchinton 1796 born Dorset 3 public trees come up. One of them has the father of James Minchinton b 17 August 1752 as John Minchinton b 1710 married to an Elizabeth Russel but there are no sources.

Have to leave this now, hopefully someone with access to more resources than me will be along shortly.

The old familysearch.org IGI site has the birth, marriage and children of John Minton and Elizabeth Russel in east chinnock 12 Oct 1737 but the entries I read are member submitted and unsourced. Having said that it may give some ideas on how to continue.

Yes, I have seen those as well, but much much un-sourced info there.
I have some more site from a couple of helpful people in the chat room here, so will have to check them out in the next few days.

We live in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast QLD, but originally came from the Sutherland Shire
