      (340) EDWARD MINTER, 300 acres on upper Chippoaks creek, on the west side of
      the great swamp, and adjoining the land of Jeremiah Clements. Due 50 for the
      transportation of his now wife, Grace, 50 for the transportation of one
      servant, Richard Hyde, and 200 by bill of sale from Charles Foard, to whom
      it was due for the transportation of four persons: Ann Emmerton, Henry
      Patrick, Edward Young, and Jon. Cooper.
      By West, last day of May, 1636.

      This establishes Edward Minter's wife as Grace. This is an abstract.

      Virginia Colonial Records, 1600s-1700s, Cavaliers and Pioneers, Patent Book
      1, Pat II, Page 94 records this land transaction: EDWARD MINTER, 300 acs.
      James Citty Co. 25 July 1638, page 583. At the Up. Chippokes, bounded on the
      W. with a great Sw. next to land of Benjamine Harrison, runing along the S.
      side of James Riv. towards land of Jerimiah Clements. Trans. of 6 pers:
      Grace Minter his wife, Richard Hyde, Ann Emmerton, Hen. Patrick, Edward
      Young, John Cooper.

      In Founders and Patriots of America Index, page 152, Lineages of Hereditary
      Society Members, 1600s-1900s, is listed:

      Edward (1612- c.1684) m. 1633 Grace.... VA XXVIII, 159.

      This indicates the birth dates of Edward and the marriage date to his wife
      Grace as 1633, yet she doesn't arrive in VA until 1638.

      In Early Virginia Immigrants, 1623-1666m Surnames M-N, page 228, from
      Genealogical Records: Virginia Colonial Records, 1600s-1700s. Genealogy

      MINTER, JON., 1638, by Wm. Baker and Associates, Charles City Co.
      MINTER, GRACE, 1638, by Edward Minter (her husband) James City Co.
      MINTER, JON., 1635 by Edw. Minter, James Co.
      MINTER, RUTH, 1635 by Edw. Minter, James Co.
      MINTER, ANNIE, 1635 by Edw. Minter, James Co.

      This list reveals that JON. (which is either JOHN or JONATHAN), RUTH and
      ANNIE MINTER came in 1635 and were brought in by Edw. Minter, probably their
      father. It is not until 1638 that Edward's wife GRACE MINTER comes from
      England according to this listing. Yet, she is mentioned in a 1636 deed.
      Need help to sort this out.

      According to George Minter, JONATHAN MINTER came from
      Londo in 1635 on the Ship Paul E. captained by Leonard Betts, possibly to

      said Edward Minter, as son and heir of his father RICHARD MINTER,
      deceased -- 50 acres due the said Rich'd Minter for his personal adventure,

      Edward) and 150 for the transportation of his two sons EDWARD and JOHN
      MINTER, and one servant William Browne. By West, July 22nd 1635.
