Note on Wife: Emma MINTER

Emma Wood (nee Minter) remarried 21 Jun 1824 to George Minter (Cousin) in St Andrews Parish. It has not been possible to find birth dates etc for Emma. David Morris has more information on Emma which shows that after Edwin's death she started a small boarding school in one of the most retired parts of the coast of Kent. She wrote a memoir dated 15 March 1824 giving a detailed and moving account of her life with Edwin. It includes descriptions of several near disasters at sea, of fires and hurricanes in Mauritius and the experience of looking after her terminally ill husband in such conditions. David Morris has a copy of this memoir which had been sealed and not opened or read until June 1869
