Early Origins of the Mince family

The surname Mince was first found in Shropshire at Minton, a township, in the parish and union of Church-Stretton, hundred of Munslow. [2] The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Munetune. [3] There is another Minton in England. "Probably also some smaller spot in co. Northumberland. But this family has sprung from Shropshire." [4] The earliest record of the family was Walter de Muneton who was listed in the Select Pleas of the Forest for Shropshire in 1209. A few years later, Richard de Minton was listed in the Assize Rolls of Shropshire in 1221. [5]
