2019 Mar 21 - Ken Levine, WIlliamsburg VA

My wife is a William Prentis descendant. In reading the story on William Prentis, the only issues I have about the of marriage William Prentis to Mary Brooke. They were married before 1726 when John Brooke wrote his will leaving his house to daughter Mary Prentis. He had sold a small house on this property to William Prentis in 1724. John Brooke ran an ordinary in 1714 in this residence. William Prentis and Mary Brooke's daughter, Sarah married William Waters who lived only 2 doors down Duke of Gloucester Street. Williamsburg was not an independent town or city back than. It was split down the middle of Duke of Gloucester Street, the north side was York County and the south side was James City County. Mary Brooke probably was born in her father's house on Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, York County. The Prentis Store is down Duke of Gloucester Street on the York County side. York County land probate and other court records survived the Civil War because the clerk buried them instead of sending them to Richmond for protection as required. Unfortunately the James City County records were sent to Richmond and were accidently destroyed in a fire set by the departing government of the Confederacy. In the last few years, Colonial Williamsburg has been conducting archeological research on the lot next to the store and has located the foundation of the original store owned by Archibald Blair where William Prentis had started his work. Research information on the Prentis House and Store can be found online under the digital library research tab of the Colonial Williamsburg Rockefeller Library.
