On PrenticeNet you'll find all types of Prentice-related information. When we say "Prentice-related," we are referring to all of the name variations, not just "Prentice." We encourage you to explore, and if you have information to contribute or feel our information is incorrect, please let us know.

We are grateful to the huge contribution to PrenticeNet provided by Joe Dewald, the editor of the Prentice Newsletter. You'll find some fantastic information in the Newsletter, so be sure to check out the articles.

Enjoy! --Lee and Scott Prentice

• Edward Prentice of Hornton, Nr Banbury, Oxfordshire 1790/ 91 I have searched many Parish Registers for Oxfordshire for the birth/ baptism of Edward Prentice without success; however I do have a copy of a will written by an Edward Prentis of Drayton, he died in 1808 In the list of items left to his family he leaves his second watch to Edward Prentis (no relation given to him) and to John Prentis his brother the lease of his farm. One theory I have and this brings me to Edward 1791-- at the beginning of the will he bequeaths unto Edward Simpkins natural son of Mary Simpkins of the Parish of Ratley the sum of 100 pounds, In the parish register of 1791 on the 3rd April, Edw Prince Simpkins was christened son of Mary. There is no further knowledge of this Edw (death, marriage, 1841 census) . Was 'Prince' (an unusual name) meant to be written as Prentice/ s? So could this be the Edward that eludes us. Unfortunately there is no proof. Drayton, Ratley, and Hornton are villages only a few miles within distance and crop up quite frequently in the research I have done prior to my family moving to Birmingham. I am going to check with my details and see if there is other dates. census etc: I can send, in the meantime I am sending conformation of my immediate family.
