John Mynterne of Newlands, Batcombe, Dorset is my 12th great grandfather, he signed a document dated 1552 relating to the parish church of Langton, Dorset of which his name is inscribed as, Sir John Mynterne, Parson. This is the only document I have seen in which he refers to himself as ‘Sir’.

John Mynterne was the husband of Margaret Wolley, sister to Sir John Wolley of Pirford who in turn was married to Elizabeth More a lady in waiting to Elizabeth I, who was godmother to their son Sir Francis Wolley.
