Hugh Prentice of Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2008 and Revised 12 Mar 2001

1. Hugh Prentice was b. c. 1819 in Renfrewshire, Scotland He appears in the 1861 census in Girvan, Ayrshire, with his wife and family. The 1861 census indexes the town as "Tuesley" but we are unable to locate a town by that name. It seems likely that town should be "Paisley" because the 1851 census Girvan shows a Hugh Prentice as a Lodger, b. c. 1821, Paisley, Renfrewshire.

The 1871 census in Glasgow Calton shows Hugh as b. c. 1822, Paisley, without his wife, but with his son, Stewart Prentice, below.

The 1881 census in Glasgow, Hutchesontown, Lanarkshire, shows a Hugh Prentice as a Boarder, b. c. 1819, Paisley. He does not appear in the 1891 and later census.

He m. Elizabeth, b. c. 1824, Maisgay, Wigtonshire. Children:

  1. Elizabeth Prentice, b. c. 1845, Kirkmichael, Ayrshire. At home in 1861 census. Not home in 1871.
