Prentices of Abbess Roding, Essex Co., England
Summer 2002 and Revised 26 Apr 2002

Ian Prentice, by email of 26 Apr 2002, has provided us with some great information about the Prentices in Abbess Roding, Essex Co., England which lies perhaps 8-10 miles east of Harlow:

A John Prentice of Aythorp Roding and Great Canfield has papers about him which are found in the Essex County Record Office relating to the year 1573. For now, it is unclear what his relationship is to the Prentices described below. For purposes of this article only, but without any documentary evidence, it will be inferred that he is the father of the persons set out below:

  1. John Prentice of Matching, b. c. 1520-40. . . . . . . . [1]
  2. Robert Prentice of Matching, b. c. 1520-40. . . . . . . . [2]

1. John Prentice, of Matching, may have been b. c. 1520-1540. John d. in 1617 leaving a Will. The Will indicates that John had land in White Roding and in Matching. Matching lies perhaps 4-5 miles NNE of Abbess Roding and White Roding lies about half way between them.
