Early Origins of the Minett family
The surname Minett was first found in Kent
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 12th century when they held estates in that county. The family is thought to come from Cotes du Nord in Normandy.
