Introduction: This article updates and replaces the following articles in earlier issues of our Prentice Newsletter:

We are working with CarolAnne Prentice Chepurny, Rosie Barbour, Catharine Craven, Marilyn Haggart, Heather Lindsey, Robert Prentice of Newcastle, Ontario, Canada and Peter Longshore, in constructing the Prentice family tree set out below.

    SPECIAL NOTE OF 14 JAN 2011: Rosemary Barbour's email of 7 Feb 2001 mentioned ". . .a recent development is William Prentice from Ecuador but [that Rosemary] hasn't fitted him in yet." If any of the contributers to this article have a current email address for Rosemary Barbour, or information about William Prentice from Ecuador, please contact me at the Prentice Newsletter. Be sure to give the full title and date of this article in the Subject line of the email.

1. (Unknown) Prentice and his wife had 2 or more children, including the following:

  • Daniel Prentice, b. c. 1754, Tryon Co., NY . . . . . . . . [2]
  • Richard Prentice. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [3]
  • John Prentice. He was a Capt. in the 1st Battalion of Sir John Johnson's King Royal Regimnt.

2. Daniel Prentice was b. c. 1754, Tryon Co., NY. CarolAnne Prentice Chepurny and Robert Prentice have provided us with the following information about Daniel Prentice of Tryon County, NY (originally formed from the western half of the original Albany County, and later further split and renamed) who later moved to Charlottenburgh, Ontario, Canada.

On 23 Apr 1783, Daniel Prentice was a corporal in the 2nd Battalion of Sir John Johnson's King Royal Regiment of New York. He had served as a loyalist with this regiment for 2 years and 9 months. General Haldimand drew up a list of loyalists who needed to be 'vitualled' in January, 1784 in Township No. 2 (Charlottenburgh Township - Lunenburg District which became Glengarry County, Ontario). Daniel Prentice was on the Muster Rolls along with his wife, Mary Hamilton and 5 children.

In 1784, Daniel petitioned the British Government and claimed losses of 154 pounds for land lost in New York to the Americans during the Revolutionary war (Also lost were 5 'Milch' cows, furniture and farming utensils). The claim was eventually paid in 1788.

Daniel appears on the Canadian Loyalist List of Claims in 1788 with the following information:

    "Claimt. says. He was in Sir John Johnston's 2nd. Batal.

      Note: The "2nd Batal." would be the 2nd Batallion of the 1st Kings Royal Regiment of New York." For a brief history of the Regiment, see Fn. 1.

    "Sent a Claim (form) by Capt. Leake in '83. Is a native of America. Lived on Sir John Johnston's land when Rebellion broke out. Came to Canada in 1780. Says he was imprisoned & could not come sooner. Joined Sir John's 2nd Batt. in '80. Served 3 years. Produces his Discharge.

    "Had a farm of 130 acres hired of Sir John Johnston. Taken some years before ye Rebellion. Cleared 30 acres. Lost 5 Cows, utensils, furniture. Left on his Farm when he went away. Sir John Johnson certifies that Claimt. had a Lot of land from him, where he had made considerable improvement before the war & to his Loyalty"."

The foregoing information suggests the following points:

  • Daniel's land was "taken some years before ye Rebellion." That seems to indicate that Daniel obtained land from Sir. John before 1776.

  • He was likely an adult when he obtained the land. "Records of Immigrants to Canada, Part One, shows that Daniel immigrated to Canada in 1783 at the age of 29; that indicates a birth date of c. 1754. If he were 20 when he obtained the land, he may have obtained it about 1774-5.

Unfortunately, a check of our PRENTICE book does not show any unaccounted for Daniels in that general time frame, or even between 1725 and 1770. And, also unfortunately, American census records did not begin until 1790 so we cannot further pinpoint Daniel's location in Tryon County.

Land records from Luneburg District 1790 show Daniel Prentice with several hundred acres of land South of the Raisin River in Charlottenburg Township.

Daniel married Mary Hamilton. It is unclear when and where the marriage occurred, but based on the children listed below, it may have been before 1776 in the United States.. Children of Daniel and Mary (per Johni Prentic Levene, email, 19 Oct 2007, and Ancestry.com ):

  1. Mary Prentice, b. before 1776, Unied States. She m. John Clark on 5 Nov 1793. She is probably the Mary Prentice who is the subject of our Winter 2004 article entitled Mary Prentice of Williamstown, Ontario, Canada .
  2. Katherine Prentice, b. 1772, United States. She m. John Cross on 14 Sep 1797.
  3. James Prentice, b. before 1783, United States.. James was a member of the Glengarry Light Fencibles and died in the War of 1812 from wounds on 21 Sep 1814, during the siege of Fort Erie, Upper Canada.

    (probably) Elizabeth Prentice, b. before 1783, United State. She m. John Kain before 1795.

  4. John Prentice of Charlottenburgh, b. 1781. OC 7 Aug 1811. He is likely the John Prentice who owned land in Charlottenburgh in 1811. He is also likely the John Prentice who, like his brother, enlisted also in the Glengarry Light Infantry in Cornwall on 25 Mar 1812 and who was discharged in 1815/ He m. Catherine McMillan on 21 Jun 1810. Children:
    1. Mary Ann Prentice.
    2. Catherine Prentice.
    3. Susannah Prentice.
  5. Isabella Prentice, bapt. 14 Feb 1786 at Williamstown. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2.1]
  6. Lewis Prentice, b. 1788. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [4]
  7. Ann/Nancy Ann Prentice. She m. Nicholas Barnhart of Town of Cornwall. He was b. 1771. He enlisted in the 2nd Battalion KKRNY c. 1880 at the age of 9 years OC 11 Jan 1834. Daughters (per Sharon Eilers-Sharp, email, 8 May 2001):

    1. Rebecca/Rebeka, bap. 19 Oct 1797 (per Johni Prentice Levene, above)
    2. Mercy Barnhart, b. 1 Jan 1808 and d. 1892.

  8. William Prentice, bap. 12 Feb 1792. William, like his brother, James, was a member of the Glengarry Light Fencibles and died in the War of 1812.

Johni Prentice Levene's email of 19 Oct 2007 relates the following information:

    "[O]ne possible final child is Nelly, likely short for Helen, Eleanor or Comelia who m. Donald Frazer date unknown. 1 child that I found for her is Susannah b. 29 Nov 1816.

    "Note: Nelly and Elizabeth are the only 2 children that I have not absolutely proven as neither has baptism records or land grant petitions. I do believe that both are his daughters though. Nellys child was baptized along with the McMillan and Clark children and Elizabeth fits for the 3rd daughter that was with Daniel and Mary when they arrived."

2.1 Isabella Prentice was chr. 14 Feb 1786 in Williamstown, St. Andrew's Presbyterian, Glengarry, Ontario, Canada (per IGI). The "Adams History" says Isabella died in Brookfield, MA on 11 Nov 1853, age 67.

According to the "Adams History," Isabella's family was a "distinguished family in Montreal."

Isabella married Ezra Adams on 1 Feb 1798 in Williamstown at the age of 14 as his second wife, against her parents' wishes, and they refused to recognize her. Ezra had been the owner of a saw-mill and grist-mill in Barre, Mass., Sept. 18, 1792, which he sold to John Baker of Hubbardston, Mass., Feb. 6, 1794, the deed being acknowledged by Ezra and his first wife, Dolly, in Cheshire Co., N. H., Jan. 28, 1795.

Forsaking wife Dolly, Ezra resided for several years in Canada, where he m. Isabella Prentice. He returned to Brookfield, where he was a leader of the Baptist Choir, and where he died 14 Sep 1825. Children:

  1. Levi Adams, b. ?? and d. 7 May 1848. He m. Betsey Beers. She was b. 7 Jan and d. 8 Sep 1874. Children:
    1. Rosamond Draper Adams, b. 20 Sep 1827 and d. 29 Aug 1897. She m. Ambrose Mendell Tower, b. 27 Mar 1821 and d. 3 Apr 1874. Children:
      1. Henry Mendell Tower, b. 23 Jul 1847 and d. 23 Apr 1904. He m. Sarah Maria Woodward. She was b. 3 Mar 1853 and d. 23 Apr 1904.
      2. De Witt Tower, b. 17 Dec 1874 and d. 13 Apr 1949. He m. Catherine Agnes Mulhall, b. 14 Apr 1876 and d. 2 Oct 1946.
  2. Daniel Adams
  3. Catherine Adams
  4. Mary Adams
.

3. Richard Prentice. He was a Capt. in the 1st Battalion of Sir John Johnson's King Royal Rangers. Like his brother, Daniel, Richard was also a Loyalist and settled further east in the Ottawa area of Nepean, Ontario, Canada. He is likely the Richard Prenties who owned land in Kingston in 1790 and 1800. We have had the same difficulties in identifying Richard's parents as we had with Daniel, described above. The name of Richard's wife is not presently known. Children of Richard Prentice: (Ref: "The Sons & Daughters of American Loyalists")

  • Daniel Prentice of Nepean, OC 1850 or 1851. Although original documentation proof has not yet been found, it seems likely that he is the Daniel Prentice of Charlottenburgh discussed in our Summer 2006 article.
  • Lydia Prentice. She m. George Routliffe of Hull. OC 1850 or 1851
  • Deborah Prentice. She m. David Moore of Hull. OC 1850 or 1851

4. Lewis Prentice was b. 1788 in Charlottenburgh, and d. 1865 in Lancaster Twp., Glengary Co., Ontario (per Johni Prentice Levene, email, 19 Oct 2007).

He m. Catharine McDonell on 25 Jun 1805. She was b. in Scotland (per 1891 census by son, William). Lewis was a landowner in Charlottenburgh in 1809. By email of 3 Dec 2005, James Allan McDonald has provided the following additional information:

    The Glengarry Co. family of Daniel Prentiss, U.E.L. (United Empire Loyalist) was primarily protestant. Lewis was the exception... as he baptized his children at St. Raphaels RC Church in Charlottenburgh Twp. Later in life Lewis formally converted to the Catholic faith (profession of faith made in 1861 at St. Raphaels- 4 years before his death). He died on March 19, 1865 on lot 12, 5th Concession of Lancaster Twp., Glengarry Co., Ontario. He was buried at St. Raphaels on March 21, 1865. His stone does not survive.

    The reason for the Catholic baptism's and profession of faith are likely linked to Lewis' wife Catherine... as she was the daughter of Catholic parents (Dougald MacDonald and Catherine MacDonald) emigrated from the Scottish Highlands (Knoydart) on board the Ship McDonald in 1786. Lore has it that Catherine was one of two children on board the McDonald in 1786 enroute to Canada.

    Meron's (Gaelic form of Sarah) baptism is found at St. Raphaels on December 27, 1812 and her birth was noted as the 6th of the same month. Her baptism sponsors were noted as Angus MacDonell and Catherine MacDonell. Dougald of Knoydart settled on Lot 29, 5th Concession of Lancaster Twp. in Glengarry County.

His religion was Church of England (per Robert Prentice, email, 27 Jan 2007, citing William's grave and Death Record). William is found in the 1841 Seymour Twp Census along with James Prentice.

    PRENTISS Mary Marion (Delves) Prentiss of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, at the age of 94 passed from life to life everlasting with her Lord and Savior and with other loved ones on Sunday, January 25, 2015. She was born August 2, 1920 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to George Edward Delves and Charlotte (Bennion) Delves.

    She was the second of eight children. When she was in the first grade, the family moved to St. Johns Park in Jacksonville, Florida where she attended Fishweir Elementary and Robert E. Lee High School. During World War II, she felt the need to help with the war effort and chose to work as a welder at the St. Johns Shipyard.

    In 1947, she was married to Darrell George Prentiss, who after a 21 year US Navy, attended South Eastern Bible College and became an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God Conference.

    Together they pastored the Exeter Assembly of God church in New Hampshire, as well as the Jacksonville Beach First Assembly and the Atlantic Beach Assembly churches in Florida. They received their initial Ministerial experience opening a closed church in Lexington Park, Maryland while still on active duty with the Navy. Mary s special area of ministry was offering an encouraging word and a helpful hand to residents of nursing homes. In her retirement years, she was a member of the Jacksonville Beaches Women s Club and the Beaches Area Historical Society. A favorite pastime was her long walks on the beach.

5.5 Sarah L. Prentice was b. 1857 in Seymour Twp, Ontario, and d. 1909 in Duluth, MN.

She m. William J. Lanigan on 1 Jul 1890, Douglas Co., MN. He was b. c. 1860 in Danville, PA, son of Michael Lanigan, and Mary Boyle of Duluth although the marriage took place in Superior, WI. (per Johni Prentice Levene, email, 19 Oct 2007, citing WI, Douglas Co Book A of Marriages p. 133 #798 no. a47542).

William Lanigan purchased 80 acres in Duluth on 5 Nov 1897. Neither Sarah nor William appear in the 1900 census.

William appears as a lodger and widower on the 1910 Federal census in Duluth Ward 3, St. Louis Co., MN, putting Sarah Prentice's death some time before that. No children presently known, but none were none with him in 1910 (per Johni Prentice Levene, above) The 1910 census also shows that both of William's parents were b. in Ireland.

Shown next to William in the 1910 census is Charles A. Lanigan, b. c. 1876, PA, single, with both parents b. in Ireland. e is likely a younger brother of William.

6. Sarah Prentice. We have apparently conflicting information about her birth:

  1. James Allan McDonald's email of 4 Dec 2005.says Sarah was b, 6 Dec 1812, bap. 27 Dec 1812, St. Raphaels, Glengarry County, Ontario, and d. before 1859
  2. Heather Lindsey's email of 2 Apr 2008, says that her family records show Sarah was b. 30 Nov 1813 and suggests that there were 2 Sarahs, one who was b. and d. in 1812 and a later one b. 30 Nov 1813.

In any event, Sarah m. Andrew Thomson at an unknown date before 1841. He was b. Apr 1805 and was from Edinburgh, Scotland. Andrew was a stone carver. Children per Heather Lindsey, email, 2 Apr 2008:

  1. Catherine Thomson, b. 6 Jan 1841, Toronto and d. young.
  2. Catherine Thomson, b. 11 Feb 1842, Kingston. She m. Robert Oaks. She moved to WI, USA. Not in 1870 or later US census. Children of Catherine and Robert:
    1. Frank Oaks
    2. Lewis Oaks
    3. Jessie Oaks.
    4. Della Oaks.
  3. Sarah Ann Thomson, b. 17 Apr 1843, perhaps Kingston, Glengarry County. She m. John Cloes in 1859 in Elgin Co., Ontario where they remained. Although the 1881 Ontario shows a USA birth place, she may be the Sarah Cloes, age 43, in Yarmouth, Elgin East, Ontario, with her husband, John O. Cloes, age 46, and children:
    1. John O. Cloes, 46, b. Ontario.
    2. Sarah Cloes, 37, b. Ontario.

    4. Lillie Cloes, 18, b. Ontario.
    5. Neal Cloes, 14, b. Ontario.
    6. Henery Cloes, 9, b. Ontario.

    3. Olive May Cloes (died young)
    4. William O'Neal Cloes

Fn. 1:   A Brief History of the Regiment

(The following material comes from a website describing the origins and history of the 1st Kings Royal Regiment of New York. It is obviously partial to the English.)

It is unfortunate that the media has saturated Canadian history with the idea that people like George Washingtonand and Paul Revere should be our heroes. Canadians should instead recognize those folk who remained loyal tothe government and fought against the violations of freedom the Continental Congress advocated. These people are our cultural ancestors; they built the foundations and traditions of early Canada.

Canada was part of an area known as British North America. The history of the King’s Royal Yorkers starts well before the American Revolution and goes back to a time when New York was a province of British North America and Six Nations territory.

In the early eighteenth century, a lone Irish fur trader emigrated to an area known as the Mohawk Valley in New York Province. This region was considered at the time to be the frontier with a few white settlements of Palatine Germans and Dutch. These settlements bordered on the fearsome tribes of the Six Nations native peoples. The Irishman, named William Johnson, settled in the Mohawk Valley and became very good friends with the Mohawk Indians, the Elder Brothers of the Iroquois Confederacy. In fact, he was so close to the natives that the Government had little choice but to name him official Superintendent of Indian Affairs. The natives would only accept Johnson!

The founding fathers of the Regiment.

Although Sir John Johnson was the founder of the regiment, he was living in the shadow of his father, Sir William’s achievements. Sir William, a well known supporter of the crown, was a prodigy in leadership who built a thriving community in the wilds of the frontier. However, many were jealous of Sir William and feared him for his loyal friendship with the Six Nations. His son's regiment was largely drawn from the people Sir William had settled on his lands. The Officers, carefully selected by Sir John, were an effective mix of able frontier partisans and talented community leaders.

Many of the other settlers of the Mohawk valley were jealous of the lands the Mohawks were giving to William. The Dutch settlers had been there since the seventeenth century and did not have a good relationship with theMohawks with whom they had numerous land disputes. Sir William's position assisted the Indians with their land disputes. As a result he became widely accepted by many Native nations, but made a few white enemies.

William Johnson became wealthy and famous for his heroism in the Seven Years War or what Americanscall the French and Indian War . As a result of the War, Britain conquered all the North American holdings claimed by France. For his deeds, the King knighted William and made him the first Baronet of New York and granted him more lands.

Before and after the war, Sir William had been settling his lands with immigrants from Germany, Ireland, Scotland and other places.

    Note: That suggests the likelihood that the Prentices may have come from England, Ireland or Scotland.

The majority of these people adored Sir William for his generosity and sense of fun. The new settlers got along surprisingly well with Sir William’s native neighbors. However, because of both ethnicand religious divisions the old settlers did not like the newcomers to the area but, they did not make any moves against them for they feared Sir William and his Mohawks. As Sir William's importation of immigrants continued, by 1770 the Mohawk Valley was no longer a the frontier but a thriving agricultural community.

Hostilities Break Out

One year before the (1775)outbreak of the American Revolution, Sir William died. The enemies of Sir William did not fear the son as they had his father and, with the support of Congress, began making life difficult for Sir William’s people.

Over the winter of 1775-76, Governor Carleton led an admirable defense of Canada with few men and resources. Sir John Johnson, who had inherited his father's title had to go as far as fortifying his home and arming both white tenants and native allies as a body guard. Fearing for their lives, many loyal settlers were beginning to flee to Canada. The rebels were becoming bolder and began to commit offenses including arresting loyalists for simply supporting their true and lawful government. Many of the influential families close to the Johnsons had left.

At the same time, Congress had formed an army and invaded Canada. At Quebec city, the army was defeated in disgrace over the winter of 1765-76 by an enthusiastic mix of Loyalists, French Militia, Loyal English, some loyal Canada natives, British sailors and few companies of British soldiers.

The invasion of Canada caused tensions to rise in the Mohawk valley. As Congress's army struggled in the north, the rebels in the valley made their move against the Johnson house. First, the authorities disarmed Sir John's tenants. As a result of this measure, Sir John knew he could not mount a defence of his home or property. Soon after, he was warned that the rebels were going to arrest him and he had no choice but to flee. With only a few hours notice, he gathered up two hundred of his followers. Guided by Mohawks, they began the march to Canada. Johnson's starving, weakened band finally made it to Montreal.

Obviously thirsty for revenge, one of the first things Johnson did was seek out the Governor to approve his wish to raise a regiment. From this day forward, Johnson lived up to his family name and became one of the most active and able Tory leaders during the war.

Governor Carleton approved the beating order to raise Johnson's regiment and shortly afterwards at Chambly, Quebec, the King’s Royal Regiment of New York began ecruiting. Most of the soldiers came from Johnson’s followers but with the general mood of the Province others readily volunteered.


United Empire Loyalists: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

United Empire Loyalists is the name given to the portion of British Loyalists who resettled in British North America when they were forced to leave the United States after the British defeat in the American Revolutionary War. This group of Loyalists settled in the two colonies of Quebec (including the Eastern Townships), modern-day Ontario and Nova Scotia (including modern-day New Brunswick). Their arrival marked the beginning of a predominantly English population in the future Canada west of the Quebec border.

Modern-day descendants of those original refugees sometimes apply the term United Empire Loyalist to themselves, using "UE" as postnominal letters; the honorific is the only hereditary title of Canada. The practice is rare, even in the original Loyalist strongholds like southeastern Ontario. However, it is used extensively by historians and genealogists.

The word "Loyalist" appears frequently in school, street, and business names in loyalist-settled communities such as Belleville, Ontario.
