Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
John and William Prentice of Oakley and Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire, England
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Summer 2000 and Revised: 30 Dec 2011

Update of 28 Jan 2005: John Prentice is the son of John Prentice and Ann Rawson who are #17 in our Spring 2001 article on the Prentices of Linslade, etc.. The contents of this article have now been inserted into that other article.
Original Article: We are helping John Taylor, Kim Schlotterbeck, Ron Stretton, Sean PrenticeJoan Marshall and Marilyn Foster with the invaluable aid of Ian Prentice, in tracing the ancestry the following Prentice families of Oakley and Sharnbrook: (A word of caution: Ian Prentice advises that the earliest 2 generations have not yet been fully verified)

1. John Prentice, b. c. 1720-25, perhaps in Willington, Bedfordshire, England. John m. Ann Grendige in Willington in 1744. Willington lies about 5 miles east of Bedford. By 1746 they were living Cople, about a miles or so south of Willington.

Who are John's parents. We do not yet know. The only John Prentice shown in the IGI as born about 1720 in Bedfordshire is John Prentise, son of William and Mary Prentise, chr. 12 Feb 1716 in Billington, Bedfordshire. Billington lies just below Leighton Buzzard and about 30 miles SW of Willinton.

In any event, the known children of John and Ann are (per Ian Prentice and IGI):

  1. Susan Prentice, b. 12 Oct 1746, Cople, Bedfordshire. She m. in 1769, but the name of her husband has not yet been determined.
  2. Ann Prentice, b. 8 Oct 1749, Cople, Bedfordshire. She m. in 1774, but the name of her husband has not yet been determined.
  3. John Prentice, b. 5 Nov 1752, Cople. . . . . . . . [2]

    4. (perhaps) Mary Prentice, b. c. 1820 whose father is called Joseph Prentice in the IGI record of her m. to William Cradock on 2 Feb 1841, Oakley. He was b. c. 1820.
    5. (perhaps) John Prentice, b. c. 1822, Oakley. See information received from Celia Northern by email of 15 Mar 2003. See John Prentice of Oakley in our Spring 2003 issue.
  6. Ann Prentice, b. chr. 21 Sep 1789, Oakley (per IGI)

  11. William Prentice, chr. 1 Apr 1804, Oakley (per IGI); m. 1843. . . . [5]
We also found in the IGI a Jane Prentice, perhaps b. c. 1810-25 (no husband named) who had a daughter, Sarah Prentice, who m. Robert Burgess on 5 Aug 1845 Oakley. So far we have not been able to identify Jane's parents. By email of 4 Nov 2003, Colin Dawson advises that he located a death for "Sarah Burgess (Prentice)" in the 4th Qtr 1868, aged 44 years (Cert. 3b 191). Robert Burgess than appears to have then married Elizabeth Smith who may have been the widow of a John Smith.

      1. William Prentice, chr. 25 Jul 1858, Blunham.
      2. Frederick Arthur Prentice, chr. 9 Sep 1860, Moggerhanger, Bedford. He m. Georgiana Hall 23 Apr 1883 Moggerhanger, Bedford, England.

4. John Prentice, chr. 25 Sep 1791 (per IGI) in Oakley, Bedfordshire, England, which lies a short distance northwest of Bedford. He d. 25 May 1854 Sharnbrook (per Joan Marshall, email, 27 Nov 2003)

One of our correspondents has indicated that John may have married Lucy, b. c. 1798, Bromham, which lies less than 2 miles south of Oakley.

Pending clarification, we shall continue with the family of John Prentice and Lucy of Bromham. After their marriage, they later moved about 5 miles north to Sharnbrook at some date prior to the birth of their son, John, in 1824. They left Sharnbrook, England for Victoria, Australia on 20 Aug 1860. John and Lucy had the following children:

  1. William Prentice, chr. 20 Aug 1820, Souldrop. William m. Mary Ann Church on 23 Jun 1859, Sharnbrook (per Ron Stretton, emails, Dec 2000). Not in 1881 census.
  2. John Prentice, b. c. 1824, Sharnbrook. John m. a Mary Westley on 2 Jul 1842 or 1843. Not in 1881 census.
  3. Charles Prentice, b. c. 1829, Bromham. . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . [7]
  4. Thomas Prentice
  5. George Prentice. He is Kim Schlotterbeck's ancestor.
  6. James Prentice
  7. Samuel Prentice, b. c. 1833, Sharnbrook.
  8. Sarah Prentice, b. c. 1836, Sharnbrook.

Kim believes that Thomas Prentice, above, is the same person as the Thomas Prentice mentioned our Spring 2000 article and identified there by Sue and Ron Terwijn as the son of a John Prentice and Ruth Pugh. Whether they are the same Thomas Prentice, the key to resolving the problem lies in determining whether:

  • there were 2 men named John Prentice who married different women (one Lucy and the other Ruth Pugh),
  • or whether there was only 1 John Prentice and the two women are either the same person with one name being wrong, or perhaps 1st and 2nd wives.
