We found the following family in Ancestry.com and have augmented it with England census records:

1. John Prentice was b. c. 1806, Scotland. He appears in the 1841 census in Liverpool, Lancashire, England with his wife and family. He does not appear in the 1851 and later census records.

He is almost certainly the Ninian Prentice who appears in the 1861 census in Toxteth Park, Lancashire, with his wife and family.
