Lemuel Shattuck, in his History of the Town of Concord, speaks of the Minots as a distinguished family going back to Thomas Minot, Secretary to the Abbot of Walden in Essex.[4] Thomas was Jonas Minot's great-great-great grandfather. When Thoreau in his Journal quoted Shattuck on this he understandably added an exclamation point after the word "Walden."[5] By coincidence the Walden we all associate with Thoreau received its name from his step-relatives!
