By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 2004 and Revised 15 Oct 2017


Update of 29 Sep 2017: This article has now been replaced by our Winter 2017 article entitled John Prentice and Jean Hamilton of Carluke and Stonehouse.
Note:   This article combines and replaces information which appeared in 2 earlier articles:
  1. Thomas Prentice of Ireland and Scotland , and
  2. John Prentice of Carluke, Scotland

Using the records available from Records Office in Glascow, Scotland, and the information contained in the website of Fraser Hamilton and Anne Prentice Christie at Fraser Hamilton, and particularly their comprehensive Prentice pages beginning at Prentice , as well as much additional information provided by Arch Prentice in his email of 26 Nov 2007, we have compiled the following tentative family tree for John Prentice of Carluke, Scotland.

A word of caution: the tree is based solely on the possibility of family relationships because of similarity of names and proximaty of dates and locations. If you know of any errors, please contact us so that we may correct them.

Glasgow, Scotland records contain extensive birth and christening records for various towns in Scotland beginning in the 1600s. The first entries for the town of Carluke begin with the entries for the children of John Prentice (wife's name not given) on 28 Jan 1700. He is likely the John Prentice named by Glasgow records, as the father of the following children christened at Carluke:

  1. Christen Prentice, chr. 28 Jan 1700.
  2. James Prentice, chr. 9 Mar 1701.
  3. Jean Prentice, chr. 26 Oct 1701.
  4. John Prentice, chr. 6 Jun 1703.
  5. Henry Prentice, chr. 7 Aug 1703.
  6. Jannet Prentice, chr. 29 Jul 1705.
  7. Thomas Prentice, chr. 9 Jan 1709.
  8. Jannet Prentice, chr. 20 Aug 1710.
  9. Thomas Prentice, chr. 12 Mar 1710.
  10. James Prentice, chr. 14 Jun 1713.
  11. Jannet Prentice, chr. 19 Jul 1713.
  12. Alexander Prentice, chr. 12 Feb 1716.
  13. John Prentice, chr. 8 Feb 1719.
  14. Jean Prentice, chr. 28 Aug 1720.
There was also a John Prentice who was born in Carluke; he was chr. 25 Jan 1702, son of James Prentice. He may be the same person as John Prentice who is #1 in our Fall 2008 article entitled Roberrt Prentice of New Monkland, Lanarkshire, Scotland . He m. Marion Hastie

B, John Prentice, aka John Prenties.

He m. Jean Hamilton. Children:

  1. Hendry Prenties, aka Harry? Prenties, b. c. 1670 Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire.

  3. Marion Printice. She married Alexander Muirhead on23 Nov 1695, in Carluke, Lanarkshire.

A. John Prentice, b. c. 1670, probably Scotland.

He m. Margaret Hamilton on 18 Sep 1698, Stonehouse. Although not yet documented, they may be the parents of:

  1. John Prentice, b. c. 7 Sep 1698, Scotland. . . . . . . . . . . [1]

  2. Andrew Prentice, b. c. 1729, Scotland. For his family, see our Fall 2002 article entitled Prentices of Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, Scotland .

1. John Prentice, b. c. 7 Sep 1698, Scotland.

He m. Marion Whitelaw and had (per IGI)

  1. James Prentice, b. 11 Mar 1722, Carluke. . . . . . . . . . . [2]
  2. Thomas Prentice, 10 Sep 1724, Carluke. . . . . . . . . . . . ]3]

    Note: There may be some uncertainty whether James, above, is the son of John Prentice and Marion Whitelaw. That information comes from an LDS Pedigree Resource File which shows James as b. 1 Mar 1722, Carluke, son of John Prentice and Marion Whitelaw; it also shows that same 1722 James Prentice as marrying Elizabeth Reid in 1740 in Carluke. That information needs closer scrutiny for at least 2 reasons:

    1. That record does not cite any specific original source document, and
    2. James' birth date, said to be 1722, makes him some 9 years younger than Elizabeth who is given a birth date of 1713. A husband that much younger is unusual, but not unheard of.

    Another researcher, suggests the possibility that James Prentice might be the son of John Prentice (b. 1684) and Margaret Fram (b. 1688) who are shown in the IGI as having a son, James Prentice, b. 6 Jun 1713 in Carluke. While it brings the birth dates of James and Elizabeth closer together, that IGI record does not cite any specific original source document showing that he is the one who m. Elizabeth.

    What needs to be done is to locate an original source document which identifies the parents of the James Prentice who m. Elizabeth Reid.

2. James Prentice, b. either 6 Jun 1713 or 11 Mar 1722 (see "Note" above), Carluke. We have only the smallest bit of information about James as to his place of birth; we know only that it is said to be "near Belfast, Ireland.”

He married Elizabeth Reid on 11 May 1740, Carluke. She was b. 25 Dec 1713, Carluke. She was christened on 3 Jan 1714 in , Carluke. Ref: Ancestry.com . Children:

Thomas appears in the following census records:

  1. He appears with his wife and children in the 1851 census living at 7 Greenend in the town of Greenend, Old Monkland Civil Parish. His occupation was listed as "Hammerman." A "Hammerman" is identified in Scotsfamily.com/occupations as a "Metal worker, a smith."

  2. He appears with his family in the 1861 census living at 2 Locks Row, Old Monkland where he is called a "Labourer." Thomas and his family later appear in the 1871 census living at Greenend No. 35, Old Monkland, where he is called a "Labourer." He is not listed in the 1881 census when he would have been about 65, perhaps indicating he was by then deceased..

This Thomas Prentice of Glasgow must be distinguished from another Thomas Prentice, a Weaver, in Old Monkland who also had a wife named Mary.

In the 1870 marriage record of his daughter, Anne, he is called a Blacksmith and in the death record of his dau., Mary, he was called a "mineral labourer (per Julie McDonald, email, 4 Jan 2009).

    Thiepval is the largest and one of the most emotive memorials to the missing from any war in which British soldiers have died. It stands in an isolated windswept position on the Somme - with absolutely no facilities for visitors and nothing to explain what happened in 1916. A high proportion of the names at Thiepval are soldiers who died on 1st July 1916 – the first day of the Battle of the Somme. All that visitors find are 600 British and French graves and the names of 72,000 British soldiers carved into the stone of this massive memorial, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens

6. John Prentice, b. 11 Aug 1758, Cambusnethan. There are 2 possibilities as to his marriage and family:

  1. Based on John's Cambusnethan place of birth, and the Cambusnethan birth of children, John may be the John Prentice who m. Agnes Dalziel and had:
    1. Robert Prentice, b. 24 Jan 1783, Cambusnethan.
    2. Alexander Prentice, b. 9 Nov 1784, Cambusnethan. He is probably the Alexander Prentice who m. Cicilia Haddow and had:
      1. Agnes Prentice, chr. 4 Sep 1808, Cambusnethan.
      2. John Prentice, chr. 7 Jul 1812, Cambusnethan. He may be the John Prentice who m. Janet Reid (see Thomas Prentice of Cambusnethan in our Fall 1999 issue for descendants).
      3. Alexander Prentice, chr. 11 Jul 1813, Cambusnethan.
      4. Mary Prentice, chr. 12 Aug 1815. Cambusnethan. She may, or may not, be the Mary Prentice discussed in our Spring 2000 article about Mary Prentice of Cambusnethan, Scotland .
  2. Or, because John is the son of Thomas and because the names "Robert" and "Alexander", above, do not follow conventional Scottish naming patterns, Christine Hadden's email of 16 Aug 2003 suggests that John may have m. Grisal Hervy, aka Grisald Harvie on 18 Jan 1784, Hamilton, or 5 Feb 1784, Lesmahagow. He was a grave digger and church warden. Glasgow records show the following children born to John Prentice and Grisal Hervy (also called Grisald Harvie):
    1. Thomas Prentice, b. 26 Mar 1785 and died in infancy.
    2. Robert Prentice, b. 13 Feb 1787 and died in infancy.
    3. Archibald Prentice, chr. 15 Mar 1789, Dalziel. He m. Catherine Mackie 8 Feb 1813, Dalziel. . . .[12]
    4. Isabelle Prentice, chr. 24 Apr 1791, Dalziel.

He m. Jane McKeown, b. 1834, Dalry. Living with the family in the 1881 census is her father, William McKeown, b. c. 1807, Dalry. Children:

  1. Edward Prentice, b. c. 1869, Dalry, Ayrshire. At home in Dalry in the 1881 census. Not in 1891 census. He is probably the Edward Prentice shown in the 1901 Motherwell census as b. c 1869 "Dabay, Ayrshire", apparently incorrectly transcribed, with his wife Margaret/Maggie, b. c. 1872, Dalry/Dabay, Ayrshire.

9.2 Norman Prentice, b. c. 1836, Edinburgh (per his children's birth certificated). His father was b. 18 May 1804 Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland, but by 1851 was living Edinburgh St. Cuthbert. Norman does not appear in the 1861 or 1871 census. His absence from the 1861 and 1871 census would be consistent with his being the Norman Prentice who appears in our Spring 2003 PRENTICE NEWSLETTER article at Norman Prentice of Port Chalmers, NZ . Norman's occupation was listed as "surveyor".

The following information is provided by Rowan Gibbs email of 11 Nov 2009. It reads in part, and with some rearranging, as follows:

    ". . . There was no trace of a Norman Prentys in New Zealand but certainly a Norman PRENTICE and he was indeed a surveyor in the Province of Otago. He arrived in Port Chalmers (the port of the city of Dunedin in Otago) on August 20th 1860 on the ship ‘Pladda’ from Glasgow, Scotland.

      "Otago Witness Saturday August 4 1860 page 4: The agents of the provincial Government of Otago despatched the ladda," a first-class ship, from Clyde, on the 26th April, with a full complement of cabin and steerage passengers. In the cabin were two surveyors, the first of a series proceeding to Otago at the special request of the Government, for the purpose of laying off the districts of the province still unsurveyed."

    Norman and Rosa had a daughter Elsie Prentice born Musselburgh, Dunedin 9 Oct 1878. The birth cert gives Norman’s age as 43 and Rosa’s as 30. [Tbey also had] a son Roland Prentice, born Invercargill 13 May 1881 Neither child was registered with a middle name

    "Norman worked as a surveyor in Dunedin until the late 1870s, producing a number of maps and plans for the Otago. Most are held in the Hocken Library in Dunedin and are listed in their catalogue http://otago.lconz.ac.nz

    "The family moved south to Invercargill in 1880. Norman is recorded as owning land and went bankrupt 3 March 1883 but continued working as a surveyor. He is listed Mataura Ensign 7 Jan. 1887 p.6 as resigning as Wyndham Town Board surveyor and a clearance auction of his household effects is advertised 5 April 1887 p.3. In June 1887 he was gazetted as a licensed surveyor in Melbourne (Vic Govt Gazette, No.50, June 10 1887 p.1774), so the whole family presumably moved to Australia at that time. http://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/default/CommunityGovernanceDocuments/38_Byron_Street.pdf House at 38 Byron St, Port Phillip, where Norman lived in 1891

    "Norman probably died in the late 1890s and Rosa and the two children then moved to England. Both children living with the mother in Essex in 1901 UK census [surname as Prentice]."

That Norman Prentice m. Rose Frances Nixson 4 Apr 1877 at the Anglican Holy Trinity Church at Port Chalmers, NZ. Rosa was born 10 Apr 1846 in Bayswater, London (baptised 14 Dec 1864 [sic] along with her younger brothers John Pym Nixson, born 10 April 1848, and Albert Nelson Nixson, born 16 Oct. 1849), daughter of Francis Nixson (“Gentleman”) and Maria(n) (née Potter) of Porchester Lodge, Bayswater. [she signs Arthur Francis’ wedding cert. as MariaN].

Rosa sailed to Melbourne, Australia, on the ship ‘Clarence’ arriving at Port Phillip 27 Jan 1871. She travelled with her older brother Joseph Francis Nixson and the Pollon family, including Kate who married Joseph; they also settled in Otago. Rosa and Joseph sailed immediately to New Zealand on the ‘Tararua’, leaving 28 Jan. 1871 and reaching New Zealand in February.

Children of Norman and Rosa:

  1. Elsie Pym Prentice (later changed to Elsie Pym Prentys), b. c. 1879, New Zealand. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .[9.3]
  2. Roland Pym Prentice (later changed to Roland Pym Prentys), b. 4 May 1880 in New Zealand. . . . . . [9.4]

9.3 Elsie Pym Prentice (later changed to Elsie Pym Prentys), b. c. 1879, Otago, New Zealand, and d. 7 Nov 1960 at 67 Roland House, Old Brompton Road, London S.W.7 (death notice, Times, 9 Nov 1960, p.1).

The following information is provided by Rowan Gibbs email of 11 Nov 2009. It reads, in part, and with some rearranging, as follows:

    "I am interested in New Zealand born novelists (of whom there are a surprising number) and have been trying for some years to get reliable biographical information on a writer listed by the Library of Congress as THORNTON-COOK, Elsie Prentys, 1889-1960, and by the British Library as both that and as PRENTYS, Elsie Pym, 1879-. I was sure they were the same person, despite the differing names and birth dates.

    "The information I had [about Elsie] was this from the 1966 Encyclopedia of New Zealand: “[She] has published a number of historical novels, was born in Otago and spent a few years on the stage in Australia before turning to journalism in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and England. During the First World War she worked in the Royal Arsenal and during the Second World War in an intelligence section. Among her books about royalty and famous people are The Romance of the Queens of England, Royal Elizabeths, The Coronation Book of George VI and Queen Elizabeth, Thomas and Jane Carlyle, and Charles and Mary Lamb”

    "and this from a 1910 magazine: “Mrs Thornton Cook, who writes under the pen name of E. P. Prentys and “Maorilandia”, is doing a little work in England, and also contributing to several colonial papers. Her latest book, ‘French for daily use’, has just been published in London.”

    "Recently I found a copy of one of her books in the original dust jacket and on the flap it had the following note: Elsie Thornton Cook was born in Otago, daughter of the late Norman Prentys of the Geological Survey; educated privately; became a child actor in Australia, and later a journalist in Australia, New Zealand and America. Has lived in England since the beginning of the war [i.e. World War I].

    "Rosa travelled from Sydney to Victoria, B.C., Canada on the Marama in 1909, arriving 19 October, giving her destination as London and stating she had previously visited Canada (Montreal) for four days in 1908. In the 1910 US Census he is listed as living with Roland in California. She died in London 1912.

Elsie married John Thornton Cook in Hackney, London, on 21 Jul 1908. Her name given as Elsie Pym Prentys, age as 28 (b. c. 1880), and residence at time of marriage is given as Chicago. John's was shown as age 29 (b. c. 1879), “insurance broker” . He was probably the author of How to Work Insurance Agencies to Increase One’s Income and to Earn a Good Living. London: Guilbert Pitman, 1909. 94pp. He died Mar 1909 Holborn, London, at the age of only 30 years. (Ref: Rowan Gibbs, email, 11 Nov 2009)

John Thornton Cook appears in the 1891 census in Islington, London, as b. c. 1880, Stamford, Hill, London, son of John Williams Cook (b. c. 1849, Minories, London) and Marian Agnes Gerrish (b. c. 1851, Banbury, Oxfordshire). An Ancestor Chart for John Thornton Cook can be found at Ancestry.com .

9.4 Roland Pym Prentice (later changed to Roland Pym Prentys), b. 4 May 1880 in New Zealand and d. 26 Dec 1947 in Monterey Co., CA, at the age of 67 years.

Some years after Roland's birth in New Zealand, and before 1901, Roland and his mother returned to England before 1901 where they appear in the 1901 census in Loughton, Essex, England.

In 1902, Roland and his mother, Rosa, left England and emigrated to the United States (per 1920 census). He later appears in the 1910 acensus in Oakland, CA and 1920 San Francisco, CA census without wife or children. However, living with him in 1910 was his mother, Rosa F., b. c. 1846 in England. She does not appear in his home in the 1920 census when should would have been about 74 years of age and might by then be deceased (see 1912 death of a Rosa F. Prentys in Strand, England, below)..

Roland does not appear in the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) nor does he appear in California Death Records (CDR).

A search of St. Catherine's Index of Deaths in England beginning in 1837 showed only 2 Prentys deaths:

  1. Jun Quarter, 1867, Thomas Prentys, 50 (b. c. 1817), Strand
  2. Dec Quarter, 1912, Rosa F. Prentys, 66 (b. c. 1846), Strand.

Since Roland's mother, Rosa F., appears in the 1910 Oakland census but not in the 1920 census, one could reasonably infer that Rosa F. may well have returned to England before 1812 and is the same Rosa F. Prentys who died in the Dec Quarter, 1912 in Strand.

The following information is from Rowan Gibbs email of 11 Nov 2009. It reads, in part, and with some rearranging, as follows:

    "In 1908 [then living in Alameda, California, he participated in] the 20 year Pistol Champion of America. Following are newspaper accounts::

      "Mr Roland Prentys, who... won the 20 yds Pistol Championship of America last week, is a native of Southland, his father having been a well known member of the survey staff under the Provincial Government of Otago” -- Feilding Star, 8 June 1908,p.1"

      “...Roland P. Prentys is a thorough colonial. He was born in Invercargill, Southland, in 1881, and spent his childhood in Dunedin and various parts of New Zealand. For 12 years or more, before business took him across the water to the States, he was resident in Victoria, Australia. His intention is to return shortly to his native land, where he hopes to make his name equally prominent...” -- Otago Witness 10 June 1908 p.58

      “Local Shooters Establish A World’s Record - With a score of 1.131, made in an indoor revolver match against the Belleville revolver club last Thursday, the San Francisco team established a world’s record. Five men took part in the shoot, thereby making an average of a fraction better than 226. Nothing like this record has been made before and the San Franciscans are now recognised as the champion revolver shots of the world. The following marksmen took place in the record breaking match … Roland Prentys… – San Francisco Call 16 Jan. 1910 [further references at http://cbsr.tabbec.com/]

    He served in WW1 as a private in 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles and then as a 2nd Lieut. in the 3rd Royal Sussex Regt, Royal Field Artillery (M.I.D. 1917), unmarried, profession engineer. Rowan Gibbs email of 12 Nov 2009 provides the following additional information:

      A brief extract here from the Official War Diary of the 77th Brigade listing him as wounded ( Great War Forum :
        Gournier Farm 12 October 1917: Several casualties occurred in the Brigade during the day. Major H. E. Pitt, Capt. R. P.

    His WW2 U.S. draft card states married, living Belvedere, California, employed by National Lead Company in San Francisco. Died Monterey, California, 26 Dec 1947.

Roland m Margaret Mesfield on 16 Apr 1921 (age 21, b. c. 1900), Sausalito, Marin Co., CA per Rowan Gibbs citing Marin Journal newpaper item. However, he also notes that there is a Margaret N. Prentys on the California Death Index shown as b. 5 Nov 1876, mother’s maiden name Mahoney, and who d. 9 July 1965 in Marin It is unclear if this the same Margaret since she would have been 45, not 21, at the of the 1921 marriage.

    We have very much enjoyed the opportunity to review the Prentice Genealogy as we have worked to validate one particular branch, and have found some significant overlap. But we find some discrepancies between what you’ve published, what our research shows and what our family history indicates. Below is a summary of our findings and some questions for your review. We appreciate any direction you can provide.

    14. Agnes Hunter b. c. 1800-01, m. Thomas Prentice b. 5 May 1799 on 30 Jan 1822. We believe that Agnes arrived US at NY NY, 26 Oct 1858, from Scotland on Ship Resolute. Passenger list also shows William Prentice and Margaret Prentice (her children). This would indicate why they no longer show on the Scottish census.

    In a US Civil War Pension application by Agnes Prentice, for deceased son William Prentice, Agnes sent to Scotland for a copy of her marriage certificate to Thomas Prentice b. 1799 as part of her evidence to show that William was her lawful son. In the pension records is a copy of an original document, sent from the church in Blantyre indicating the minister in 1822 was John Hodgson, verifying the marriage of Agnes Hunter and Thomas Prentice on 30 Jan 1822. In doing so she demonstrates that she, the Agnes in the US, is really the same as the Agnes that m. Thomas Prentice b. 1799. (Thomas' birth date of 1799 is specifically mentioned).

    The Pension application clearly indicates that Thomas Prentice, b. 1799 and died ’about 19 years before the application.’ We compute that to be 1841-1845. That falls within the death date range for Thomas estimated in your Genealogy. This would seem to provide direct evidence that this Agnes Hunter is the same Agnes Hunter who m. Thomas Prentice b. 1799 in your tree.

During his service with the Special Weapons Battalion of the 2nd Marine Division, he participated in the invasions of Tarawa, Guam, and Okinawa.

He stayed with this company through numerous mergers and acquisitions, retiring in 1984 from RBS Corporation in Mt. Pleasant, PA. In 1989, he and his wife, Beverly, relocated to Ft. Myers, FL.

    Elmer was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Beverly G. Prentice.

  4. Adell/Adella Prentice, b. Nov 1870, OH. By emnail of 27 Mar 2002, Sandy Canterbury provides a copy of the following article from the Cleveland Encyclopedia of History:

      HUGHES, ADELLA PRENTISS (29 Nov. 1869-23 Aug. 1950), best known as the founder of the CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA, was born in Cleveland to Loren and Ellen Rouse Prentiss, graduated from Miss Fisher's School for Girls in 1886, and from Vassar College in 1890 with a degree in music. After a grand tour of Europe, returning to Cleveland in 1891, she became a professional accompanist. Though successful in this role, Prentiss became interested in the broader aspects of musical promotion in Cleveland, and in 1898 began bringing various performers and orchestras to the city.

      By 1901, she was one of Cleveland's major impresarios, regularly engaging orchestras to perform at GRAYS ARMORY. During the next 17 years she supplied the city with a series of musical attractions, including orchestras, opera, ballet, and chamber music. Seeing the need for a permanent orchestra, Hughes created the MUSICAL ARTS ASSN.. in 1915 from a nucleus of business and professional men to furnish support for her projects. It was through her influence that NIKOLAI SOKOLOFF came to Cleveland. In 1918, she, Sokoloff, and the Musical Arts Assoc. joined forces to create the Cleveland Orchestra. She served as its first manager, holding that position for 15 years. She also held administrative positions in the Musical Arts Assoc. for 30 years, retiring in 1945 only to continue her philanthropic work.

      Adella Prentiss married Felix Hughes in 1904. The couple divorced in 1923. for a photo of Adella, see Hall of Fame .

    Also living in the home in 1880 was Rebecca E. Rouse, Ellen's mother, and Martha A. Chaddock, Ellen's sister.

HUGH PRENTICE OF NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA

1. Hugh Pentice was born in Nova Scotia and his parents are said to have been born in Scotland. Hugh's birth date is not known. (Source: Audrey Prentice Roy, E-mail, 9 Apr 2000).

    Who is Hugh's Father? If James William Prentice is Hugh's son, than Hugh might have been born about 1820. The 1900 Seattle, King Co., WA census shows an Alexander Prentice, b. Nov 1821 in Scotland. His wife is Jane, b. Mar 1822 in Scotland. He is #25581 in our computerized database. Alexander's 1821 birth date, his residence in Seattle residence makes him an interesting candidate to be Hugh's father. Children of Alexander and Jane:
    1. Alexander Prentice, b. Nov 1850, Scotland.
    2. James Prentice, b. Mar 1863, Wisconsin.

Hugh Prenticee married Isabella Irving. Hugh and his family headed west, settling eventually in Seattle, King Co., WA. Known children:

  1. James Prentice. He might be the James William Prentice, b. 1842 in New Brunswick. He lived in Seattle. However, that would indicate a 30 year spread in the birth dates of Hugh's children and place Hugh's birth ate at roughly 1820 or thereabouts.

  2. Daniel Prentice, b. c. 1871-1876. . . . . . . . . . [2]

  3. Minnie Prentice.

  4. Sandy Prentice.

  5. Hugh Prentice. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [3]

2. Daniel Prentice, also called Daniel Irvine Prentice, was born 19 Jun 1867 in Quebec, which would be Matapedia Valley, Quebec, next to Restigouche, Campbellton County, and and d. 27 Dec 1928 at Jardine Brook, in Victoria Co., New Brunswick. Audrey Roy and George Russell have provided the following material from his proposed History of the McDavid Family, one member of which married into the Prentice family.

Daniel Prentice, his parents, and his brothers and sisters have their ancestral roots in Scotland. They kept going west and crossed to Seattle, Washington where the family settled. Daniel later moved north to Canada in 1867. He did not like living in Seattle (perhaps too much rain?) and moved back eat to Campbellton, New Brunwsick, Canada, where he worked building railroad tracks for the railroad.

Daniel Prentice married Margaret MacDavid 15 Apr 1896 in Restigouche Co., New Brunswick. She was born 1875 in Matapedia Valley, Quebec, dau. of Deanna McDavid of McDavid's Mtn., Quebec. Margaret d. 10 Mar 1953 in Bath, New Brunswick. Daniel's children, all born in the Metapedia Valley, were:

  • Sadie Prentice, b. after 1896, who m. Mr. Lovely
  • George Maxwell Prentice, b. 1897 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [4]
  • Blanche Prentice, b. after 1896, who m. Mr. Merryweather.
  • Percy Howard Prentice, b. after 1896.

George Russell says they had anan adopted daughter: Sarah Jane Prentice. It is unclear if she is Sadie or Blanche above, or is an additional daughter.

3. Hugh Prentice. He might be the Hugh Prentice shown in the 1920 Snohomish Co., WA census. That county abuts King County to the north. Hugh was b. c. 1873 in "Quebec," probably Quebec Province in Canada. His wife, Blanche Knight, daughter of Cornelius and Mary Knight, was b. c. 1883 in WI. They appear in the 1930 census in Three Lakes, Snohomish Co., WA.

The birth places of their children indicates Hugh was living in Wisconsin and that they moved from WI to WA sometime between 1909 and 1911.

Since his first child was b. c. 1902, Hugh might be the Hugh Prentice in the 1900 Phillips, Price Co., WI census who was b. Mar 1872 in "Canada (Eng)".

    Note: Also appearing in the 1900 Phillips, Price Co., WI census is Alexander Prentice, b. Apr 1887 in Canada and his wife, Minnie, b. Mar 1875 in Germany. His 1887 birth date suggests he might be a younger brother of the Hugh b. in 1872. Children of Alexander and Minnie:
    • Alexander H. Prentice, b. Sep 1892, WI.
    • Daniel E. Prentice, b. Apr 1897, WI.
    • Gladys M. Prentice, b. Mar 1899, WI.

    Hugh may be a brother to Blanch Prentice, b. May 1882 in WI, who is also a boarder in Phillips in the 1920 census, but it is unclear if it is the same boarding house.

    He may also be a brother to Alexander Prentice , b. 1887 who also appears in the 1900 Phillips census.

Children of Hugh and Blanche (per 1920 census):

  1. Irvin L. Prentice, b. c. 1902, WI. His name, Irvin, is interesting because it suggests the name of his possible grandmother, Isabella Irving. In 1930 census in Three Lakes, Snohomish Co., WA with his wife, Velma G. She was b. 5 Oct 1901, OR, obtained her SS# in WA and d. 30 Jan 1988, Snohomish, Snohomish Co., WA.

  2. Lucille T. Prentice, b. c. 1903, WI.

  3. Hugh N. Prentice, b. c. 1907, WI. He appears in the 1930 census in Lake, Snohomish Co., WA, with his wife, Jean, b. c. 1912, WA. No children shown.

  4. Howard L. Prentice, b. 1 Aug 1908, obtained his SS# in WA, and d. Oct 1969, Snohomish, Snohomish Co. WA. In 1930 census in Three Lakes, Snohomish Co., WA, living at home. He m. May and had:
    1. Rod Prentice, b. 18 Apr 1942 and d. 24 Mar 2010, Snohomish Co., WA. Surviving him was his "life companion of 26 years," Anne Speary. His obituary in The Daily Harold of 30 Mar 2010 reads as follows:

        Rod Prentice" Apr. 18, 1942 - Mar. 24, 2010

        Rod passed away peacefully with his family by his side on March 24, 2010. Rod was an avid sports fan. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and cooking. He loved going for long drives on every back road in Snohomish County. He survived cancer in 1991. Rod had a strong spirit and everyone who was lucky enough to know him knew he had a great sense of humor.

        Rod was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and May Prentice. He leaves behind his life companion of 26 years, Anne Speary; his brother, Ronald Prentice and wife, Korby; his sons, Greg Prentice and wife, Carrie, Todd Prentice and wife, Cari; his daughter, Cheri Zimmerman and husband, Edward; stepsons, Charlie Speary, Rory and Mike Watkins; grandchildren, Erica, Ryan, Briet, Hannah, Eddie, Amber, Tylor, Jacob and Zachary.

I am a descendant of Margaret Prentice, daughter of James Prentice and Janet Schaw, born in Carluke, Scotland, 14 Mar 1811, and Thomas Bow, whom she married approximately 1837. I am planning a trip to Scotland to do further research and would appreciate any information regarding research sites.
