Silvanus Minton (Justice of the Peace, Benton Co., now Calhoun Co., AL, 1841) was the earliest authenticated progenitor of the Mintons of Alabama and most of the Mintons of Arkansas according to Dr. Hubert Lee Minton's manuscript,

"The Story of the Arkansas Mintons", 1976.

I am thankful to all who contributed to our Minton Family Tree,
and it is my hope to future generations that you will,

"Know Who You Are".

Please enjoy our family tree.

Original Spelling of Our Minton Surname

Myndton

The name Minton appears to have its origin in the county of Shropshire, England, and records of the churches there show that it was a very common name. The village of "Minton", not far from Shropshire, has records that show the Minton family dates back to 1060 in England. The surname Myndton is associated with the Welsh, meaning "an English village on a Welsh hill". Mynd means "a Welsh hill" and ton is a Scandinavian word derived from tun meaning "a village".

Minton Immigrants to America

Richard Minton and his son, Thomas Minton, Sr. are probably the original immigrants of our Minton lineage to America from the Welsh border country interfacing with Shropshire County, England to Chester County, Pennsylvania - then migrated to South Carolina, Alabama, and Arkansas.
