Item name: 1750 Indenture, Walsham le Willows, Suffolk
Summary: John Prentis the Younger to be deputy of Thurston Thomas, Esq.
Description: Manor document from Church House Manor, Walsham Le Willows. Thomas Thurston esq, steward of the manor first states that John Prentice the younger of Walsham le Willows is to be his deputy. It then states that John Gawsell, Cordwainer of Walsham Le Willows and Elizabeth his wife surrender messuages within the manor to James Hunt, Glover of Walsham Le Willows. Signed by Thomas Thurston and his servants John Rickard and Samuel Rogers.

It would appear that this John Prentis is the same John Prentice (#24) mentioned in Prentices of Palgrave, England in the Prentice Newsletter.
