Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
Thomas Prentice of Moreton, Essex Co., England
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Summer 2001 and Revised 28 Aug 2014

Update of 28 Aug 2014: This article has now been merged into ourFall 2000 article entitled William Prentice of Essex Co., England and Australia. See now that other article.

In 1991 we received a copy of a Pedigree Chart and 3 Group Sheets which had been prepared by Colin W. Prentice. Using his information, together with information containing in the IGI, Ancestry.com and augmented by Richard Thompson, David Grutchfield and with the always-appreciated help of Ian Prentice, we have prepared the following revised Prentice family tree:

1. Thomas Prentice was probably b. c. 1690-1705.

He m. Mary.

    Note: Elizabethscott25, at the Scott Family Tree at Ancestry.com , shows Thomas' wife as Mary Tarling who he m. in 1709, but do not show any children until 1725, some 16 years later One would think either (1) that either Mary Tarling is not the mother, or (2) that there are 5 or 6 children not shown who were born in that 16 year period. We have asked Elizabeth Scott if she has some official document showing that Mary Tarling is the mother, but so far have no response.

    Fn. 1: Colin Prentice's chart shows Thomas Prentice as b. 13 Jan 1732. However, Ian Prentice advises that the 1732 Thomas Prentice died young and that it was a later brother, also named Thomas, who was the father of Thomas Prentice, #3, who m. Elizabeth Warr.

    Fn. 2: Ian Prentice has identified Thomas' wife as Judith Lucklyn rather than the Anne Nichols shown on Colin Prentice's chart. That difference needs to be resolved. However, that appears to be a different Thomas Prentice (see email of David Grutchfield, 12 May 2004).

    Fn. 3: There was also a Thomas Prentice was b. c. 1684 and is called "of Moreton", Essex Co., England in the IGI. Thomas d. 16 Aug 1740 at Moreton. He m. Mary Tarling on 13 Oct 1709. She was b. 7 Oct 1689, Bobbingworth, and d. 8 Feb 1758. Mary was the dau. of John and Mary Tarling. This couple, however, appears too old to be the parents of the children listed.
