  3. (unknown) Prentice, chr. 11 Jan 1677, Carstairs.
  4. James Prentice, chr. 16 Jan 1679, Carstairs.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]

He may be the James Prentice who married Isabell Forrest 23 Jan 1717 at Carstairs. Their children included:

  1. Anne Prentice, b. Carstairs and chr. 9 Feb 1718. She m. James Wilson 27 Oct 1751, Carstairs.
  2. William Prentice, b. Carstairs and chr. 20 Mar 1720. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [3]
  3. Isabell Prentice, b. Carstairs and chr. 28 Jan 1722.

3. William Prentice, chr. 9 Feb 1718, Carstairs.

He m. Katherine Wallace on 18 Aug 1745, Carluke, Scotland. Their children include

  1. William Prentice, chr. 1 Dec 1745, Carstairs. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [4]

    4. Isobel Prentice, chr. 23 Aug 1778, Carstairs.
    5. William Prentice, chr. 16 Jun 1780, Carstairs.

  3. Katherine Prentice, chr. 7 May 1749, Carstairs. She married Allan Aitken 8 Dec 1771, Carstairs.
  4. George Prentice, chr. 21 Apr 1751, Carstairs. He married Margaret Grenshels 30 Aug 1778, Carstairs. Children not shown on Glasgow records for births and christenings.
  5. John Prentice, chr. 8 Apr 1753, Cadder. No marriage shown for John in Carstairs. May have died or married elsewhere.
  6. William Prentice, chr. 9 Mar 1755, Carstairs. No marriage shown for John in Carstairs. May have died or married elsewhere.

4. William Prentice, chr. 1 Dec 1745, Carstairs.

There is some question whether he is a son of William Prentice and Catherine Wallace who we show as marrying on 18 Aug 1745, Carluke. His Dec. birth is only a little more ythan 3 months after the Aug. marriage date. Also, his chr. does not appear in our copy of records for that period from the Glasgow Records Office. Also, Sheila Mann's email of 27 May 2009 advises that the records she obtained from the GRO do not show any William Prentice chr. that date. There is, however, a James Prentice chr. to William and Catherine on that same date who apparently died as an infant since there is a later son born named James Prentice.

He m. Katherine Watson. The only child shown in Glasgow christening records is:

  1. William Prentice, chr. 27 Apr 1766, Carstairs. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [5]

He married Grizzell/Grace Alexander on 8 Jun 1788, Carstairs. She was chr. 16 Oct 1767, Carstairs. Their children were born at Stobilee/Stobbe (near Carstairs) except for John who was born at Ryeflat (near Carstairs).
