Welcome to the Minney & Minnell

One Name Study

My name is Barrie Minney and I have been researching the history of the names Minney and Minnell for over twenty years. Due to work pressures I have not carried out any research or sent out newsletters for some time. However, I do intend to restart one day. In the meantime I have started collecting internet references to the names Minney and Minnell. These can be found at Minney News. This will be updated regularly. There is an online a basic database of over 10,000 entries from around the world, the Minney Database. It has a basic search facility.

On the Menu left, I have listed information that I hope will be of use and interest to you. Please contact me if you have any comments, would like any research done on the database, or wish to send me any information. Please don't assume I must already have everything on the Minney name - I haven't, so anything you have may be of great importance to me, or anyone else researching their Minney line.

You can email me at to let me know what you think of the site, suggestions to improve it, your family line details, or just say hello. I can also add you to the Contacts Wanted.

I have now added a photo album page as an archive of those old photos of members of our families. Please send your scanned photos, or alternatively email me for my address if you want to post a photocopy.

I have added the facility of a free mailing list to send out newsletters or interesting articles;

Please complete the following to receive the newsletter.
