  9. Abraham Prentice, b. c. 1831, Moggerhanger, Bedfordshire, and d. 15 Sep 1907, Palmerston North. He was Convicted in the Bedford Assize for Arson ( setting fire to a haystack ) sentenced to imprisonment of 15 years, on the 27 December 1845. His age was 15 years. He was then sent to Millbank Prison in London on the 22 April 1846. Of interest, go to www.uk.ask.com/wiki/Millbank_Prison - To see details of the Millbank Prison. Millbank Prison was a prison in Millbank, Pimlico, London, originally constructed as the National Penitentiary, and which for part of its history served as a holding facility for convicted prisoners before they were transported to Australia. It was opened in 1816 and closed in 1890. From there he was sent to the Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Wight for Transportation on the ship 'Ameer'

    The 'Ameer' is said to have left the Isle of Wight on 1st November 1848 and to have arrived in Swan River, Fremantle, Western Australia on 11th February 1849. An earlier departure date of October 19, 1848 was quoted in other reports. In all, she was said to have carried 68 passengers and the 50 Parkhurst boys who embarked at the Isle of Wight were among that number.

    Parkhurst apprentices were juvenile prisoners from Parkhurst Prison, sentenced to "transportation beyond the seas", but pardoned on arrival at their destination on the conditions that they be "apprenticed" to local employers, and that they not return to England during the original term of their sentence. Between 1842 and 1849, Western Australia accepted 234 Parkhurst apprentices, all males aged between 10 and 21. As Western Australia was not then a penal colony, contemporary documents studiously avoided referring to the prisoners as "convicts", and the ships that brought them were not officially recognised as convict ships there. English records were not so reticent, classing as convict ships the seven ships that transported Parkhurst apprentices to Western Australia. 1867 :- Came to Hokitika, New Zealand on the ship 'Egmont', from Melbourne, Australia. On the Shipping List, he is described as a Miner.

One is for Anna, b. 1873 to Johannes Engelmohr and Susanna Hesse and the other is Anna, born 1879 to John Engelmohr and Susanna Hesse (Katrina Davies verified that there were two sisters with the same name). However, on the Prentice web page, Annie Engelmohr's birth has been entered as 1859 in Hackney, Middlesex - should be Brisbane, Australia. My ggrandmother Annie Prentice was born in 1858 in Dalston, Middlesex and she is in the 1871 living at 8 Ellis Tce, Hackney - perhaps because they are both called Annie it created a mix up.

Footnote 1: By email of 19 Jan 2002, Kerry Prentice advises that "William above who married Jane Kerridge [may be wrong]. On the marriage cert for these two, William’s father is given also as a William Prentice (carman) NOT as Thomas Prentice, as the information above should suggest. However if William who married Jane is correct , then we have the information regarding Thomas as father being incorrect.

I Believe that William and Jane are the correct line (although this is only through the process of elimination!) and that either Thomas is wrong or the name Thomas was used as an alias (though that would be all too easy). Additionally, Kerry Prentice's email of 23 Feb 2003 relates that William, who m. Jane Kerridge, is called "a carman" at the time of his marriage. A brother and his father appear all to be brushmakers, additional investigation is needed.


Who are William Prentice's parents?

Investigation is continuing.
