1. John Prentice may have been b. c. 1780-1795, perhaps in, or near, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England where his son, Mark, was chr. in 1815.

He m. Elizabeth. They had 1 or more children, including:

  1. Mark Prentice, chr. 27 Dec 1815, Cathedral St. Peter, Sheffield, Yorkshire. . . . . . . [2]

2. Mark Prentice was b. c. 1813-1816, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England (per 1841 and 1851 census). He appears in the 1841 and 1851 Sheffield census records with his wife and family. Also living with the family in 1851 was Sarah Stones, called Mark's mother-in-law. Mark does not appear in the 1861 and later census; his wife is called a Widow in the 1871 census.

He m. Hannah (Stones?), b. c. 1803-1811, Sheffield, Yorkshire. She may, or may not, be the Sarah Prentice shown in the 1871 census in Sheffield as a Widow and Boarder. Known children:

  1. Joseph Prentice, b. c. 1835, Sheffield, Yorkshire. Not home in1841 but home in 1851.

3. Samuel Prentice, b. c. 1840, Yorkshire. At home in 1841 and 1851. He is likely the Samuel Prentice shown in the 1881 amd 1891 Ecclesall Bierlow, Yorkshire, census as b. c. 1842, Sheffield. He may be deceased by 1901 as his wife, Louisa, is then shown as the head of the family, or he may be the Samuel Prentice shown in the 1901 census as an "Inmate" in the District Ecclesall Union Workhouse; for more on that subject, see Ecclesall Bierlow, West Riding of Yorkshire .
