Misc. Notes
According to Torrence, Jeffrey Minshall (d. 1675), of Northampton Co, VA, and Somerset Co, MD, no doubt derived descent from the Minshull, or Minshall, family of Cheshire and Devonshire, England, though as yet the connection has not been worked out and proved. The Visitation of Devonshire, 1620 (Harlein Soc. Pubs., VI, p. 184) gives a Minshull pedigree in which the names "Jefferie" and "Geoffrey" and "Randall" appear. The first edition of "The Boston Family of Maryland" by Matthew M. Wise, indicated that Jeffery was the son of a Richard Minshall and was baptised at Wistaston, County Chester, England, 26 Mar 1621. However, in Wise's second edition, he indicated that was a different Jeffery Minshall and that the pedigree of this Jeffery Minshall is still in question. He came to Virginia before 1645, when he was mentioned in a Northampton Co court record, and by 17 Sep 1666, with his wife and five children, had immigrated to Maryland where, on that date, he was assigned 400 acres called "Adventure," lying at the head of Marumsco Creek in Somerset Co. "Jeffry Mentiale" (Jeffery Minshall, Sr.) entered rights for land in Somerset Co, MD, 12 Apr 1666, viz: Jeffrey and Frances (evidently himself and his wife), Mary, Anne and Jane, his daughters; Jeffrey and Randall, his sons; and Wm. Collett, his servant. Jeffry Mentiale patented (on these rights) 400 acres of land at the head of Morummsco Branch. Jeffrey was born in 1621 at England. He deposed on 9 Apr 1655 that he was aged 34 or thereabouts and on 28 Jun 1655 that he was aged 30.. He was the son of Richard Minshall and Ellen Goldsmith. He married Frances (3) Carsley on 18 May 1650 at Northampton Co, VA. Jeffrey was living in October 1651 at Northampton Co, VA. Jeffrey was named in a deed in on 12 April 1666 at Somerset Co, MD. Jeffrey died on 8 April 1675 at Marumsco Section, Som Co, MD. His body was interred at Marumsco Section, Som Co, MD.

Misc. Notes
Frances Carsley was called a minor in her grandmother Alice (-----) (Berriman) Wilson's will of 1640. Her marriage contract to Jeffrey Menshall, dated 18 May 1650, was drawn by her uncle Thomas Johnson, apparently her guardian (N'hamp Co Deeds, Wills, etc, 1651-1654, f. 48). A judgment was acknowledged, 28 Oct 1651, by Jeffrey Minshall to Thomas Johnson, Gent., "on the behalfe of Frances Carsley, orphant, nowe the wife of sd Jeffrey Minshall." Frances was born circa 1624 at Virginia. She was the daughter of Henry (1) Carsley and Elizabeth Berryman. She married Jeffrey Minshall Sr. on 18 May 1650 at Northampton Co, VA. Frances was living after 1666 at Marumsco, Som Co, MD. Frances died after 1679 at Somerset Co, MD.
