Updated Feb 2024

We are working with Wendy Prentice, Karen Raspin, Susan Mawson and Ian Prentice in tracing the ancestry of the Prentices who lived in the Oundle area of Northamptonshire, England. Using their information, and census records from 1841 through 1901, we have compiled the following family tree.

1. The earliest member of this family is not presently known. He probably lived in Lincolnshire or Suffolk where the only other early recorded instances of the forename "Chistopher" exists; there was a considerable movement away from Lincolnshire in the 1300s, 1400s and 1500s and several Prentice families settled in Northamptonshire. Presently known children of this member include:

  1. Margeret Prentice; m. Busby.
  2. Thomas Prentice, Yeoman of Aldwincle, Northamptonshire, b.c. 1550-75. . . . [2]

2.  Thomas Prentice, Yeoman of Aldwincle, born about 1550, Aldeincle, Northamptonshire, England and died in 1638, age 88.

Kindly note the following corrections to "5. Christopher Prentice". a). Christopher Prentice, b. 25 May 1662, Aldwinckle, Northumberland, England": Aldwinckle is in Northamptonshire, not Northumberland. b). "iv Martha Prentice, b. c. 1797-1800. She m. John Bland 17 May 1725": "c. 1797-1800" should read "c. 1697-1700".

Kindly note the following corrections to "7.5 Thomas Prentice, b. 1788 in Oundle, Northamptonshire …". Thomas is my 4th Great Grandfather, not my 4th Great Uncle. He was baptised in Oundle on 21 Nov 1797. He married Mary Ann Killingworth in Kimbolton, Huntingdonshire, England (not Huntingdon, Huntingdonshire, England). They had 6 children: Thomas (1813-), Ann Maria(1819-1902), Eliza (1820-), John (1822-), Mary (1825-) and Susan (sometimes Susannah, 1830-).
