Who are James Prentis' Parents?

He may, or may not, be the James Prentice shown in the IGI as b. 5 May 1793, and chr. 23 Jun 1793, at St. Luke Old Street, Finsbury, London, England, son of John and Anne Prentice.

The 1841 census, which has a census date of 1 Jun 1841, shows his age as "49". If his birthday is before June 1st, his birth year would be 1792; but if his birth is after June 1st, his birth year would be 1791. However, those birth years may not be decisive if the age given in the 1841 census was off.
