Who are Joseph Prentice's Parents?

It seems likely that Joseph Prentice may be the Joseph Prentice who appears in the 1861 census in Stratford on Avon, Old Stratford Civil Parish, Warwichshire, as b. c. 1853, Stratford, Warwickshire, son of John Prentice and his wife, Mary A., b. c. 1825, Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire.

  2. Joseph Prentice, b. c. 1853, Old Stratford, Warwickshire
  3. Emma Prentice, b. c. 1858, Old Stratford, Warwickshire.

Mary A. may be the Mary Ann Prentice who appears, without her husband, in the following 1851 census entry:

The National Burial Index in England shows that a Sarah Prentice, d. in Moreton in Marsh at the age of 1 week.

Who is the John Prentice who m. Mary A. and had Joseph Prentice, b. c. 1851 in Stratford on Avon, Warwickshire, England. We note that the 1841 census shows a John Prentice, b. c. 1825 in Old Stratford, Warwickshire. He would be about 26 when Joseph was b. in Stratford
