Who are Frederick Prentice's Parents?

Since the 1861 census indicated that Frederick Prentice was b. c.1845 in Maldon, Essex, we checked the 1861 Maldon census to see if we could find his parents or siblings. We didn't find anyone old enough to be his parents, but we did find the following persons who may, or may not, be siblings:

  1. Henry Prentice, b. c. 1835, Maldon, with his wife, Emily.
  2. Charles Prentice, b. c. 1837, Maldon, with his wife Sarah and family.
  3. William Prentice, b. c. 1840, Maldon, a Mate aboard a vessel, the "William Maskill", at "Town: Thames River".
  4. Robert Prentice, b. c. 1841, Maldon, and like Frederick, an AB Seaman aboard the "Vesper."
  5. Elizabeth M. Prentice, b. c. 1849, Maldon, dau. of Jeremiah Prentice (b. c. 1817, Pagelsham, Essex) and Mary (b. c. 1815, Woolwich, Kent).
  6. Catherine S. Prentice, b. c. 1850, Maldon, dau. of Jeremiah Prentice (b. c. 1817, Pagelsham, Essex) and Mary (b. c. 1815, Woolwich, Kent).
  7. George Prentice, b. c. 1852, Maldon, living with his mother and step-father, Eliza and James Potter.
