Descendants of Francis Minier

This tree was developed from a short tree submitted to us in 2016. That used the spelling Mignet for generation 1, Minier for the next three, but by generation 5 it had become Menier. Peter Francis Menier at generation 5 is shown with that spelling in the St Helier baptism register, and on his Australian death certificate, but his father and the rest of the family at generations 3 and 4 are clearly written as Minier in the 1881 census of St Lawrence and Meunier in 1891 and 1901.

Peter Francis Menier's father died after an accident in 1911, when his son was only four years old. His mother decided to emigrate to Australia to give Peter and his young sister Ivy a better chance in life.

But the family fell on hard times and Peter ended up as a ward of the State. After some hard times in care he ended up with Pop Willard, a farmer of Oakhampton, who treated him as part of his family. When his mother married again Peter rejoined the family to live at Cremorne and at 14 he started his apprenticeship as a hairdresser.

The tree was reviewed, and details added, in 2019

This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.
