James Prentice of Co. Wicklow, Ireland
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2001 and Revised 1 Oct 2010

Update of 1 Oct 2010: The contents of this article have been combined with, and replaced by, our Winter 2010 article entitled Thomas Prentice, 1643, Armagh, Ireland .

We have compiled the following tentative family tree using information from the LDS Ancestral File, letters from Janet Stone, including her emails of 19 Aug 2003 and 28 Aug 2007, and Martin Daykin's letter of 31 Jul 2007 Gloucestershire, England. We have received information which is somewhat conflicting as to the earliest generations and we have attempted to reconcile that information as set out below.

A. James Prentice was b. c. 1711 and d. 20 Nov 1777 at the age of about 66 years. He was buied in Cathedral ground, Armagh, Armagh, Ireland.

He m. 1st, Unknown (per Janet Stone, email, 28 Aug 2007)

He m. 2nd Elizabeth Oats who was b. c. 1722 and d. 29 Apr 1786 at the age of about 64 years (per Janet Stone, emails, 8 Aug 2007 and 28 Aug 2007). She was the dau. of Thomas Oats who may have been b. c. 1680-1700 and perhaps in Armagh, Ireland.

By email of 3 May 2008, Sharon Oddie Brown adds the following additional information about Elizabeth Oats' roots:

    Firstly, lets start with the Thomas Oats who is likely the father of your Elizabeth Oats who married James Prentice (1711-1777). I note that a Thomas Oats married an Anne Murray. They also had a daughter Jane in 1727 (1st Armagh Presbyterian records). I suspect that she married Joseph Oliver (1726-1796) based on records in the Pillow Manuscripts at PRONI and also the National Archives table of Armagh marriages. I also suspect that the father of both Jane & Elizabeth was the same Thomas Oats of Ballinahonebeg, Co. Armagh who died in 1764 (Armagh Probates). There was also a James Oats of Ballinahonebeg who died 1749 (Armagh Probates). I suspect he would also be a relation (There are other Oats names in the 1st Presbyterian records that I have yet to type up and post on my site).

    Henry Leslie Prentice (#1v, below) shows up in TGF PATERSONs Grand Jury records as also being from Ennislare, Co. Armagh as does his son, Henry Elliot Prentice. Ennislare is just slightly south-east of Ballynahonebeg and both townlands were often leased by OLIVERs and other relations.

    These connections are interesting because various names in the Prentice family tree are also names that show up in deeds concerning the Oliver family and the various families connected with them. Lowery, Brooke, Dobbin and so on.

    If you do a word search on my Deeds page, you will find various occurrences of Prentice and other related names. See http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/Wills_and_Will_abstracts.htm .

    I have also attached two probate tables that I have made that may be of interest.

He was sub-sheriff for Co. Armagh in the years 1836-1837 and for 43 years Chief Distributor of Stamps for that county, last Seneschal of the manors of Belteagh and Toachy, Co. Armagh (per Martin Daykin, citing "Visitation," above). The term, Seneschal, is defined in Wikipedia as follows:

    A seneschal was an officer in the houses of important nobles in the Middle Ages. In the French administrative system of the Middle Ages, the term sénéchal was also a royal officer in charge of justice and control of the administration in southern provinces, equivalent to the northern French "bailli." The seneschal in noble houses: The most basic function of a seneschal was to supervise feasts and domestic ceremonies; in this respect, they were equivalent to stewards and majordomos. Sometimes, seneschals were given additional responsibilities, including the dispensing of justice and high military command.

    The British scholar H.S. Bennett described the seneschal's role by saying that "the seneschal must know the size and needs of every manor; how many acres should be ploughed and how much seed will be needed. He must know all his bailiffs and reeves, how they conduct the lord's business and how they treat the peasants. He must know exactly how many penny loaves can be made from a quarter of corn, or how many cattle each pasture should support. He must for ever be on the alert lest any of the lord's franchises lapse or are usurped by others. He must think of the lord's needs, both of money and of kind, and see that they are constantly supplied. In short, he must be all-knowing and he is all-powerful".

      The Helles Memorial serves the dual function of Commonwealth battle memorial for the whole Gallipoli campaign and place of commemoration for many of those Commonwealth servicemen who died there and have no known grave. The United Kingdom and Indian forces named on the memorial died in operations throughout the peninsula, the Australians at Helles. There are also panels for those who died or were buried at sea in Gallipoli waters. The memorial bears more than 21,000 names. There are four other Memorials to the Missing at Gallipoli. The Lone Pine, Hill 60, and Chunuk Bair Memorials commemorate Australian and New Zealanders at Anzac. The Twelve Tree Copse Memorial commemorates the New Zealanders at Helles. Naval casualties of the United Kingdom lost or buried at sea are recorded on their respective Memorials at Portsmouth, Plymouth and Chatham, in the United Kingdom.

      The main inscription on the memorial reads:

      "The Helles Memorial is both the memorial to the Gallipoli Campaign and to the 20,763 men who fell in that campaign and whose graves are unknown or who were lost or buried at sea in Gallipoli waters. Inscribed on it are the names of all the ships that took part in the campaign and the titles of the army formations and units which served on the Peninsula together with the names of 18,985 sailors, soldiers and marines from the United Kingdom, 248 soldiers from Australia, and 1,530 soldiers of the Indian Army."
