William Prentice of Barnick, Lincolnshire, England
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2007 and Revised 18 Jul 2011

We are helping Tim Prentice in tracing his Prentice roots. Here is what we have so far:

1. William Prentice. Perhaps b. c. 1810-1830, perhaps in Scotland. He is believed to have moved to the Nottinghamshire-Lincolnshire area.

He m. (unknown). They had 1 or more children, including:

  1. Sarah Prentice, b. c. 1850, Barnick, Lincolnshire, England. . . . . . . [2]

2. Sarah Prentice b. c. 1850, Barnick, Lincolnshire, England. It is thought that her father William, placed Sarah into Lincoln Union workhouse when she became pregnant in 1874 with with her son, George Prentice. Sarah then had 4 more illegitamate children, listed below.

Sarah then married James Temple at Nettlham 1893. The 3 youngest children took the surname of "Temple." She appears as unmarried in the 1881 census in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the household of James Temple , b. c. 1843, Conningsby, Lincolnshire, Head. He is called, Married, and his occupation is that of an "Iron Stone Miner." Children listed in the household:

  1. George W. Prentice, b. c. 1875, Lincoln, Lincolnshire. At home in 1881. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census.
  2. Charles E. Prentice, b. c. 1877, Lincoln, Lincolnshire. . . . . . . . . . .[3]
  3. Elizabeth A. Temple, b. c. 1879, Lincoln, Lincolnshire. At home in 1881. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census.
  4. James Henry Temple, b. c. 1881, Nettleham, Lincolnshire. At home in 1881. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census. He m. Florence. She was b. c. 1884, Lincoln, Lincolnshire. Children per Ancestry.com :
    1. Dorothy Temple, b. 1907, Ashby, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire. She m. Walter Ernest Drayton. He was b. 11 Oct 1908, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, and d. Apr 1984, Scunthorpe and Barton-Upon-Humber, Lincolnshire. His Ancestor Chart is Ancestry.com .
    2. Gladys Temple, b. 1909, Ashby, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.
  5. Harriet Prentice, b. c. 1885 (per Tim Prentice, email, 4 Feb 2007). She may be the same person shown at home in the 1891 Nettleham census as b. c. 1890, Nettleham.

In the column headed "Relation to Head of Family", in this instance James Temple"

  • George's and Charles' entries said "none". George's name was originally written at "Prentice" and then overwritten with another name which is illegible but probably not "Temple".
  • Elizabeth's relation to the head of the Family was given as "Daur" (whatever that means), originally written as "Prentice" and then overwritten with the name "Temple."
  • James' relation to the head of the Family was given as "Daur" (whatever that means), originally written as "Prentice" and then overwritten with the name "Temple."
  • It is to be noted that in other families, where there is a husband-wife relationship, the word "Wife" is always written in the col. about the relation to the head of the family; in Sarah's instance, that space was left blank.

Sarah and James later appear in the 1891 census in Nettleham, Lincolnshire. However, Sarah's birth information as b. c. 1847, Langtoft, Lincolnshire (not b. c. 1850, Barnick). In the 1901 census Sarah and James appear in Lincoln St. Nicholas where her birth information again changes: she is shown in 1901 as b. c. 1849, Grantham, Lincolnshire. The 1891 and 1901 census records show the following additional children:

  1. Sarah Temple, b. c. 1885, Nettleham, Lincolnshire. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census.
  2. Nellie Temple, b. c. 1887, Nettleham, Lincolnshire. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census. At home in the 1901 census in Lincoln St. Nicholas, Lincolnshire.
  3. John Temple, b. c. 1889, Nettleham, Lincolnshire. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census. At home in the 1901 census in Lincoln St. Nicholas, Lincolnshire.
  4. Samuel Temple, b. c. 1892, Nettleham, Lincolnshire. At home in the 1901 census in Lincoln St. Nicholas, Lincolnshire.
  5. Rose Temple, b. c. 1895, Lincoln, Lincolnshire. At home in the 1901 census in Lincoln St. Nicholas, Lincolnshire.

3. Charles E. Prentice, b. c. 1877, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, and d. in the late 1950s. At home in Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1891 census in the 1901 census in Lincoln St; Nicholas, Lincolnshire.

He m. Sarah Ann Skepper on 23 Dec 1903 at St. Nicholas Lincoln. She d. in 1934. They moved to Ashby Lincolnshire where Sarah became the 1st woman voter in Ashby in 1903 and Charles worked on the Brickworks and later the Iron works, They where both members of the Labour party & Charles Campaigned hard for Union & workers rights. Their descendants is given by Tim Prentice as follows:

      2. Timothy "Tim" Vaughn Prentice (per emails of 10 and 11 Feb 2007)

Who are William Prentice's Parents?

Although further investigation for corroboration is needed, it seems probable that William Prentice is the William Prentice who is #6.1 in our Summer 2000 article about Thomas Prentice of Kings Cliffe, Northampton, England for the following reasons:

  1. He had a daughter, Sarah, b. c. 1849. In 1851 she was living in Langtoft, Lincolnshire where the 1891 census in Nettleham, Lincolnshire, says she was b. c. 1847.
  2. Sarah's father was named William.
  3. The William in Kings Cliffe had a wife was named Harriet; Sarah named a daughter, Harriet.
