  1. John Robert Prentice, chr. 30 Sep 1812, St. Alphage, Greenwich. . . [2]

Although not yet confirmed, but because the time and location fit, John Prentice might be the same John Prentice shown in the IGI who m. Mary and had:

  2. Ann Prentice, chr. 9 Feb 1816 St Alphage, Greenwich, Kent, England

  4. William Prentice, chr. 30 Aug 1821 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent
  5. William Prentice, chr. 6 Oct 1823 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent
  6. James Prentice, chr. 23 Oct 1825 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent
  7. James Prentice, chr. 20 Feb 1829 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent

2. John Robert Prentice, chr. 30 Sep 1812, St. Alphage, Greenwich. He is likely the same person as the John Prentice.

No wife is shown. Possible son:

  1. (perhaps son) John Prentice b. c. 1837, Lewisham, Kent (See John Owen Prentice, below). . . . . . [3]

Although not yet confirmed, but because the time and location fit, John Prentice might be the same John Prentice shown in the IGI who m. Jane and had:

  1. Jane Maria Prentice, chr. 26 Aug 1838 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent.
  2. Henry Prentice, chr. 18 Dec 1844 St Alphage, Greenwich, Kent.
  3. John Owen Prentise, chr. 18 Dec 1844 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent. Since 1844 is a christening date, and since 3 of the children of John and Jane were christened in 1844, John could well be the same John Prentice who was b. c. 1837 in Lewisham, above.
  4. Sarah Ann Prentise, chr. 18 Dec 1844 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent.
  5. William Prentice, chr. 5 Aug 1846 St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent.

3. John Prentice was b. c. 1837 in Lewisham, Kent and may be the same John Prentice who was chr. 18 Dec 1844 at St. Alphage, Greenwich, Kent, above. He appear in the 1881 Lee, Kent, census as a Grocer living at 13 Boone St. with his wife, Caroline, b. c. 1836, Devon, and children:

  2. Albert Prentice, b. c. 1880(?), Plumstead, Kent. The date may be a transcription error in view of the 1891 census entry, below.
