• Nicholas Prentice (d 1740) of Diss, Norfolk (= Ann Downing) left innumerable descendants but his origins remain a mystery. The UK Register of Duties paid for Apprenticeships (see www. ancestry. co. uk) records that Nicholas Prentice (hosier of Diss) became master to Thomas Leech 20th March 1717. Clearly, Nicholas Prentice of Diss was a Master Hosier. Possible origins include • Son of John 18 November 1651 in Stradishall • Son of John (1622-1682) Junior (9. a in Ian’s well researched tree at http:/ / www. prenticenet. com/ pnet/ news/ ?/ news/ 2011/ prentices_palgrave_england. htm The Nicholas Prentice buried at Palgrave May 6th 1675 may be him, however. • Another possibility: Nicholas Prentice (probably aged ca 14) was bound apprentice 8 March 1663/ 4 to a Stowmarket worsted weaver. Also:3 April 1661 Mary, daughter of Nicholas Prentice the younger, husbandman, apprenticed to Nicholas Prentice, the elder, tailor of Stowmarket (18 miles away from Diss) . The occupation of worsted weaver can be linked to that of hosier (who would often use worsted to make leg wear) and could be interchangeable. Coincidence aside, this raises the possibility that these two men were one and the same. If Nicholas of Stowmarket or Stradishall became Nicholas of Diss, he married late in life (possibly his 1699 marriage to Ann Downing was not his first marriage) and when he died in 1740 he would have been a man of ca 90 years old – and 67 when he became the Master to young Thomas Leech. It may sound a little far-fetched but not impossible. And so my questions: Does anyone have any information about the Stowmarket branch of the Prentice family ? Also does the register make it clear that the Nicholas Prentice who d May 1675 was, indeed, the son of John the hairweaver? Any information/ thoughts on the above will be gratefully received. Thanks for your time Best regards Peter
