Who are James Prentice's Parents?

Who are the parents of the James Prentice who married Lydia McMillan? Since James married Lydia in 1808, James was likely born about 1780 to 1790 in Lanark, although he married in Lesmahagow, perhaps because that was Lydia's residence. Lesmahagow lies only a short distance southwest of Lanark. A review of the birth and christening records of the Glasgow Records Office suggests 5 possibilities:

  1. James Prentice, chr. 5 or 23 Nov 1782, son of John Prentice and Betty Tod of Lanark. However, he may have died because John and Betty had a later son also named James (see below).

  2. James Prentice, chr. 19 Apr 1789, son of Robert Prentice and Janet Liddle of Lanark.

  3. James Prentice, chr. 27 Dec 1789, son of James Prentice and Janet Lockhart of Carluke which lies a short distance north of Lanark.

  4. James Prentice, chr. 14 Mar 1790, son of John Prentice and Betty Tod of Lanark (see above).

  5. James Prentice, b. 2 Apr 1780, son of James Prentice and Margaret Meikle of Carnwath which lies several miles northeast of Lanark.
