Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
John Prentice of Oundle, Northamptonshire, England
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Summer 2002 and Revised 29 Sep 2011


With the aid of Ian Prentice's email of 22 Mar 2002, and of Jennifer Vouyoukas-Smith's email of 23 Sep 2011,we are helping Albert and Alice McCurdy and Jennifer Vouyoukas-Smith in tracing their Prentice roots. Here is what we have so far:

1. John Prentice was b. c. 1792 in Oundle, Northamptonshire, England.

He m. Mary. We have not yet fully identified Mary, but she might be the Mary Baines shown in the LDS IGI as marrying a John Prentice on 18 Aug 1820, Harringworth, Northamptonshire, which lies about 12 miles NW of Oundle. (We did consider the possibility that William Prentice who is # 6 in our Summer 2000 article about Thomas Prentice of Kings Cliffe, Northampton, England might be the father of Thomas Prentice, #2, below. That William died in Oundle. We have not yet ruled out that possibility.)

Children per Familysearch.org shows the following children:

  1. Thomas Prentice, bap/chr 15 Feb 1829, Oundle, Northamptonshire. . . . . . . [2]
  2. Elizabeth England Prentice, b. 24 Mar 1822, Oundle, and d. 1854, age 32. She m. Joseph Cawthorn Brudenell (1812-1889) 1844 in Oundle. They had 1 or more children, including:
    1. Elizabeth Brudenell, b. c. 1846, Oundle, Northamptonshire. 1861 census staying with her uncle, Thomas Prentice, above.
  3. Samuel Prentice, b. 30 Jan 1825, Oundle, Northamptonshire, and d. 17 May 1881, Oundle, Northamptonshire, age 56. He m. Ann. She was b. c. 1830 in Stanton On Wye, Glamorgan, Wales, and d. Oct 1889 in Oundle, Northamptonshire, age 59. Children, all daughters, per Jennifer Vouyoukas-Smith, email 27 Sep 2011:

    8. May Prentice 1870 –. Jennifer Vouyoukas-Smith's email of 27 Sep 2011 relates the following:
        Mary Prentice (who for quite a long time was a music teacher in Oundle) took over the hairdressing shop in Leicester which was originally owned by my great great great grandfather Thomas Prentice. – but not before it was taken over by his son (my great great grandfather) John William Prentice [Mary Prentice would have been the niece of my great great great grandfather Thomas Prentice, and the first cousin of my great great grandfather John William Prentice.
    9. Kate Bevan Prentice 1871 – 1932

2. Thomas Prentice, b. 1829, Oundle, Northamptonshire, and d. 30 Aug 1905, Leicestershire., He married in Leicester in June 1854 and died in September 1905 in Leicester. He is probably the Thomas Prentice who was b. 1828-9, Oundle, Northumberland, who appears in the 1861 census in Leicester, St, Martin, Leicestershire,and in the 1881 Leicester Castle View, Leicester, England with his wife and family:

He m Ellen Haddon Markland, b. c. 1831, Leicestershire, and d. Mar 1910, Lutterworth, Leicestershire. Regarding Thomas' wife, Alice McCurdy's email of 21 Mar 2002 relates the following:

    "[She] was originally married to a Captain Stuart, who served in the British Army in Lucknow, India. I believe that when she returned to England as a widow, after surviving the Siege of Lucknow, she married a Prentice, and they then had George. . . . I believe that George had a brother or half brother-named Tom." (For more information about the Siege of Lucknow, see Chapter Eight, The Lucknow Campaign 1857-58 .
