I am one of the Minays from the north of England. My grandfather, William Oswald Minay, was an organist, from Lancashire. He moved up to Edinburgh in the 1940's to become organist of St. Cuthberts Church in the west end of Edinburgh. I know about the Minays on the Isle of Man - and I believe he is from the same line.
My grandfather has 4 children - two of which live in Scotland, one in Yorkshire and another in Oxfordshire. I am also one of four - my siblings all living in Yorkshire, whilst I too live in Scotland.
