      24. John Prentice, b: 23 May 1858 at Crofthead, West Fauldhouse, in the parish of Whitburn, County of Linlithgowshire, Scotland (per Mark Prentice, email, 25 Nov 2000). At the time of John’s birth, his father, David Prentice, was an iron miner. John emigrated from Scotland to New Zealand, probably aboard the ship "Canterbury" which left Glasgow on 12 Sep 1878 and arrived in Otago on the South Island of New Zealand on 10 Dec 1878. He was then 20 years old and listed in the passenger records as a "farm labourer" from "Lanarkshire".

      John Prentice married Helen "Ellen?" Howieson in Dunedin, New Zealand, on 28 Dec 1882. She was born in 20 Aug 1860 in the parish of Whitburn, Scotland, and d. 1942 in Stane, Shotts, Scotland.

      At the time of his marriage John was a 24 year old gold miner. There had been a gold rush at Gabriel’s Gully, near the small Central Otago town of Lawrence where John and Ellen Prentice were at that time living. However, the gold boom had peaked some years earlier so it is not believed that John met with much success.

      By 1886 the couple had moved further up the South Island to the West Coast. John now earned his living as a coal miner and in his time held other positions of responsibility with the Westport Coal Company that operated the mine and may have been mine manager. They lived atop a rocky outcrop 2000 metres above sea level in a shanty town called Denniston that was often shrouded in heavy mists, buffeted by high winds and covered in snow for weeks on end in winter.

      John Prentice died, tragically on 23 Jun 1898, aged just 40 years in Nelson. He had been removed to a hospital from Denniston. He is buried in Nelson. Ellen, his widow, returned with her three New Zealand-born young children to Scotland. There, Ellen married a Mr. Hamilton.

      1. Helen Howieson Prentice, b, 27 Mar 1886. She m. James Anderson on 27 Dec 1911 at Calderhead, Lanarkshire.

At that time, David was a blacksmith, 21 years of age, and lived at Stane, Shotts. In 1912, after the birth of his daughter, Agnes, David and his family returned to the coal mining town of Denniston in New Zealand where he worked as a blacksmith on the world famous Denniston railway incline renowned as a great engineering feat due to the steepness of the gradient of the hillside from which the coal was extracted and the operation of the coal bins sent down the rails to the port of Westport for despatch by ship.

      From Denniston, the family moved to New Zealand's North Island and settled in a town north of Wellington called Petone, about 1922. After raising their children David and Jessie Prentice moved further north to Napier. Jessie died there in 1966 after which David moved back to Petone.

      Who are Thomas Prentice's Parents?

      We do not know for sure yet, but since Thomas was likely born between 1720 and 1728, and probably in Lanarkshire, we find the following possibilities shown in the IGI:

      1. Thomas Prentice, b. 18 Nov 1722 at Carluke, Son of Archibald and Mary Prentice.

      2. Thomas Prentice, b. 10 Sep 1724 at Carluke, son of John Prentice who m. Marion Whytlaw on 20 Jul 1720 at Carluke. Son may be the John Prentice, chr. 13 Jul 1800 at Carluke, son of Archibald Prentice and Jean McNaught.

      3. Thomas Prentice, b. 24 Jan 1726 at Carluke,son of Alexander Prentice and Margaret Russell.

      Footnote 1: A word of caution: Sadie Hutchinson advises that she is "not 100% certain that [thomas had a son named Adam) OPR#3153221 shows a child baptised on the 4/11/1755 to Thomas & Jane but the page is damaged and we could not be certain of the christian name, but if you check the rest of their children we think there is a more than good possibility that this is Adam."

      Footnote 2: A word of caution: Sadie Hutchinson advises that in Carnwath Churchyard there is a headstone for a Margaret Prentice, born 31 Jan 1780, daughter of Adam Prentice and Margaret Brocket of Carnwath. She further advises she is making an assumption that this Margaret is the same person as the Margaret who is #3 below and for whom Sadie has no specific birth date, although she was likely born in the time period of about 1780 to 1787.

      There are, however, other possible parents for Margaret, #3 above, according to the records of the Glasgow Records Office:

      1.	She may be the Margaret Prentice chr. 27 Jul 1778, daughter of 
      	James Prentice and Margaret Meikle. They are known to have 
      	had the following children, all christened at Carnwath: 
      	a.  Margaret Prentice, chr. 27 Jun 1778. 
      	b.  Archibald Prentice, chr. 28 Apr 1782. 
      	c.  David Prentice, chr. 27 Jul 1784. 
      	d.  William Prentice, chr. 27 Jul 1784. 
      	e.  Mary Prentice, chr. 26 Mar 1786. 
      	f.  Christian Prentice, chr. 19 Jan 1790. 
      	g.  Peter Prentice, chr. 19 Jan 1790. 
      
      2.	She may be the Margaret Prentice chr. 27 Jun 1784, daughter of 
      	David Prentice and Agnes Somerville. They are known to have 
      	had the following chidlren, all christened at Carnwath: 
      	a.  Thomas Prentice, chr. 13 Oct 1782. 
      	b.  Margaret Prentice, chr. 27 Jun 1784. 
      	c.  Janet Prentice, chr. 3 Jul 1786. 
      	d.  John Prentice, chr. 26 Aug 1788. 
      	e.  Jean Prentice, chr. 14 Mar 1790. 
      	f.  John Prentice, chr. 6 Jan 1793. 
      
      3.	She may be the Margaret Prentice chr. 21 Feb 1790 daughter of 
      	Henry Prentice and Jean Nimmo of Carnwath. However, that 
      	Margaret would have been only 13-14 when Margaret m. James 
      	Mann about 1803-1804. 
      

      Footnote 3: Omitted

      Footnote 5:   Rick Prentice's email of 13 May 2000 has provided us with a line of Prentice descent, prepared by Wayne Neilson, purporting to be from Thomas Prentice, #1 above, through his son, John, #2 above, and grandson, Daniel. We have been unable to verify that his John is the same person as #2. Accordingly, we have created a new article for our Summer 2003 issue about Daniel Prentice of Carnwath and Lesmahagow

The dates given for James Prentice and Ann Hiddleston don't add up as he would have only neen 12 when he married her?? I know he did marry Ann as I have a copy of the parish record, which is sparse to say the least, but has no ages on it. Has anyone gotten any further upwards as this James cannot have been born in 1819 but atleast 5 years earlier.
