I've research this family and it appears that Charles Robert Prentice is not the Chelsea, Charles Prentice. There are two with the same name, both were shoemakers and both has connections with Westminster. If they are the same person he would have been about 14 when he married Elizabeth and would have been a bigamist when he married Sarah Brown in January 1820. Sylvia Atkins nsatkins@xtra.co.nz
