However, he might be the David Prentice, Timekeeper, shown in the 1871 census in Burntisland, Fife (across the bay and north of Edinburgh), as the son of Susan Sangster, b. c. 1834, Edinburgh, the head of the household, and apparently either a widow or divorced. Other children of Susan Sangster shown in the 1871 census are:

  • William Sangster, b. c. 1859, Burntisland, Fife.
  • Elizabeth Sangster, b. c. 1864, Burntisland, Fife.
  • James Knight Sangster, b. c. 1866, Burntisland, Fife

It may be that Susan's first husband was the father of David Prentice, and that Susan m. 2nd Mr. Sangster who may have been deceased by 1871.
