Minter, Robert Brownrigg (1825–1861)

We regret (says the Mercury) to have to announce the sudden death of Mr. R. B. [Robert Brownrigg] Minter, solicitor, who died at his residence, East Maitland, yesterday, about one o'clock p.m. From what we can learn, Mr. Minter returned from Newcastle on Sunday afternoon, and in the evening was taken ill. He continued to get worse, and became insensible, it is stated from delirium tremens, about twenty hours before his death. He leaves a widow and several children, we fear quite unprovided for.
