Liz wrote 'After thinking more I went to the HIGHT family: after Mary Ann 1800 came a Sarah MINTER HIGHT 1803 ! (and three more boys) all Folkestone. ( IGI) Back to Bermondsey: (IGI) which I think is quite significant:
Bapt> of a William MINTER LAW 1 Mar 1820 St Mary Magdelene Bermondsey to William and Mary Ann !
bapt of a Sarah MINTER LAW 3 June 1821 "" "" William and mary Ann !
Now it's not beyond the realms of possibilty that this William and Mary Ann are yours married in Folkestone 1819 ( LAWS and HIGHT) Dates "fit" more or less with the children of the couple: Sarah (bn before the marriage) and William in 1820. I see that they were bapt in Northfleet but it may have been done again by the local Vicar ( just to be sure... and particularly with Sarah who was born before they married and may have been a couple of years old by then .)
Then going back to "your" William "of Bermondsey" who married Mary Ann HIGHT.........there is a birth of William15 May 1801and bapt 5 July 1801 in St Mary Magdelene Bermondsey to a Daniel LAW and Ann.
All speculation I know but there is the Bermondsey birth/bapt of a William ; with both the HIGHT and LAWS families ( one
in Kent and one in London( Bermondsey) using "MINTER" as a middle name . This could be a LAWS / HIGHT
marriage of cousins. Haven't time to do more now but need to look at the name MINTER to see if that fits with one of the families somewhere.
