Prentices of Kimbolton, Huntingdonshire, England

Winter 2006 and Revised 11 Dec 2006

In reviewing 1841 England census records, we found the following persons associated with Kimbolton, Huntingdonshire:

Group 1: 1841 Census

1. William Prentice was b. c. 1781 at an specified place in Huntingdonshire. He appears in the 1841 census in Kimbolton, Huntingdonshire (now Cambridgeshire), with a man who is probably his brother,

2. John Prentice, b. c. 1786 at an specified place in Huntingdonshire. His birth year is only 5 years later than that of William, suggesting that, as mentioned above, he is likely William's brother.

Neither William, nor John, appear in the 1851 and later census, nor do they appear in the IGI. No wives or children are shown. Their ages are such that perhaps any wives had died and perhaps any children had left home.

3. William Prentice, b. c. 1826, at an unspecified location in Huntingdonshire, appears in the 1841 census in Stibbington, Huntingdonshire. In 1841 he would have been only about 15 and unmarried. No parents are shown. His birth year is such that he might be a son of either William or John, but no kinship is yet known.

Group 2: 1851 Census

1. John Prentice was b. c. 1776 in Dillington, Huntingdonshire, which lies only about 5 miles SE of Kimbolton. He appears in that 1851 census with his wife, Hebsibah (indexed as Hepsibak), b. c. 1799 in Pavenham, Bedfordshire. No children are shown. They later appear in the 1861 Kimbolton census where John's birth place is given as Great Staughton, Huntingdonshire. His age is such that he might be a brother to the 1881 William or 1886 John, above. He does not appear in the IGI.

He m. Hebsibah (indexed as Hepsibak), b. c. 1799 in Pavenham, Bedfordshire

2. Thomas Prentice was b. c. 1813 in Kimbolton (spelled Kembolton in the index), Huntingdonshire (now Cambridgeshire), which is the same residence of William and John in the 1841 census, above. His age is such that he might be a son of the 1881 William or 1886 John, above. He does not appear in the IGI. Also shown in that 1851 census is his wife and daughtet,

He m. Francis, b. c. 1810, Colnbrook, Buckinghamshire, and daughter:

  1. Eliza Prentice, b. c. 1848, St. Luke (no other identification). At home in 1851.

Regarding: "2. Thomas Prentice was b. c. 1813 in Kimbolton". Thomas was the son of Thomas Prentice (born 1787 Oundle, died in the Workhouse in Shoreditch 1856) and Mary Ann Killingworth (born 1791 Warboys, Huntingdonshire). Thomas senior and Mary Ann married in Kimbolton 19 Jul 1812 and moved to London between 1813 and 1819 where he set up a Linen Warehouse at 7 Cross Key Square, Aldersgate. Thomas junior was their first child baptised at Kimbolton 8 Aug 1813. He married Francis Lane in Shoreditch, London in 24 Oct 1844. As far as I can tell, Eliza was their only child.
