In 1991 we received a copy of a Pedigree Chart and 3 Group Sheets which had been prepared by Colin W. Prentice. Using his information, together with information containing in the IGI, Ancestry.com and augmented by Richard Thompson, David Grutchfield, Glenda Mason, Jane Walther, Paul Cromption, Debi Roake and Barbara Morrison and with the always-appreciated help of Ian Prentice, we have prepared the following revised Prentice family tree:

1. Thomas Prentice was probably b. c. 1690-1705.

He m. Mary (Tarling?).

    Note: Elizabethscott25, at the Scott Family Tree at Ancestry.com , shows Thomas' wife as Mary Tarling who he m. in 1709, but do not show any children until 1725, some 16 years later One would think either (1) that either Mary Tarling is not the mother, or (2) that there are 5 or 6 children not shown who were born in that 16 year period. We have asked Elizabeth Scott if she has some official document showing that Mary Tarling is the mother, but so far have no response.
