THE MINOR-MINER FAMILIES

Thomas Minor (1608 - 1690) emigrated from Chew Magna, England to New England where he has become the progenitor of many descendants. The primary reference for this Minor/Miner family ancestry is "Thomas Minor, Descendants, 1608 - 1981" by John Augustus Miner (1981). Many of those surnamed Minor or Miner living in the United States are descendants of this Thomas of Chew Magna, England.

Those who are not descended from this Thomas are possibly related to one of those listed below.

Doodes Minor (1640 - 1694+) son of Meindert Doodes of Middlesex Co., Virginia
Jacob Miner (1728-1812) of Northampton, Pennsylvania
John Minor (<1625-1698) of Westmoreland Co., Virginia,
Thomas Minor (~1721-1776) of Spottsylvania Co., Virginia.
There are some others whose relation to the above, if any, is unknown.
Some members of the Maynard family changed their surname to Mynard, Minard, Maynar, Mynar and Minor including descendants of William Mynard (died 1711 in CT).
Some descendants of the German immigrant, Friedrich Meinert of Berks County, PA about 1730, also spell their name Miner or Minor.

  • The Minor Family of Virginia, by John Barbie Minor (1923) 125pp

1. MAINDORT DOODES was born in 1610/6 in the Netherlands (Rotherdam), son of William Doodes. He married about 1640 with Mary GARRETT (also GERRETT, GERET). He died after 13 December 1677 (will made) in Urbanna, Middlesex Co., Virginia. She died 9 January 1687.

This family comes by the Miner name sort of by accident of birth. Maindort Doodes, a Dutch sea captian, had a son, Maindort Doodes, minor (or Junior) and the son, when naturalized in Virginia in 1673 took the name Doodes Minor. His descendants use both the Minor and Miner spelling.

He married Elizabeth MONTAGUE, daughter of Peter Montague 2nd and Cecily Reynolds in 1671 in Middlesex County, Virginia. He died after 13 November 1694 (will made, mentions wife Elizabeth and sons Minor, William, Garret, Peter and gdaughter Elizabeth Mickleborough) in Urbanna, Middlesex County, Virginia.
