Edward Prentis of Rochester, Kent, England

Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
Edward Prentis of Rochester, Kent, England
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 2006 and Revised 28 Nov 2006

In reviewing English census records, we found the following family:

1. Edward Prentis was b. c. 1818 in Rochester, Kent, England. He appears in the 1851 census in Kensington, Middlesex, with his wife and family. Edward d. before 1866 (per obit. of his son, Lewis) and does not appear in the 1861 and later census records.

He m. Sarah, b. c. 1802, Wemanton, Somerset. The 1851 census shows the following children, but it is obvious that they cannot all be Edward's children since was only about 10 years old when the first child was born. Either:

  1. some of them are Sarah's marriage by a prior marriage and adopted by Edward, or
  2. the census errs in calling Edward her husband since she is 16 years older than Edward and he might, in fact, be Sarah's oldest child.

Children shown in the 1851 census:

  1. Sarah Prentis, b. c. 1827, Stonymouth, Monmouthshire, Wales. At home in 1851.
  2. Phoebe Prentis, b. c. 1828, Stonymouth, Monmouthshire, Wales. At home in 1851.
