Who are Archibald Prentice's Parents?

Archibald does not appear in the 1901 or 1911 Canada census. In the 1851 Scotland census we find 2 possible families for Archibald:

  1. He might be the Archibald Prentice, son of James and Mary, b. c. 1842 in Kirknewton, Midlothian, Scotland and in 1851 living in Edinburgh St. Cuthberts, Midlothian, or

  2. he might be the Archibald Prentice, son of Archibald and Jane, b. c. 1841, Peeblesshire, and in 1851 living in Peebles, Peeblesshire

Neither Archibald appears in the 1861 Scotland census by which time Archibald was living in Quebec, Canada.
