Re: Henry Prentice of Wigenhall, England.... I discovered this amazing "tree" here on PrenticeNet in 2005... I have studied it quite a lot since and believe I can get back to William the Conquerer, but there are a couple of entries that I'm not sure of:- No. 19 Benjamin Prentis b. 1668 - married Sarah Havering 1689 and No. 20 Benjamin Prentis b.c. 1695... I can't find anything re these... can anyone throw any light on these...I really need help

My paternal grandmother was Ellen Prentice b 1887 at Kenninghall, Norfolk.She had a sister Elizabeth whom I met as a child. I was told she had other siblings. She married William Ching and in 1911 was living with him and their two sons in Paddington, London. The elder son was Hedley William Ching b 1909 and the younger was my father, Herbert Raymond Ching b 1911.My grandmother Ellen died about 1952. I am wondering whether she is the daughter of James Prentice of Kenninghall as listed on the site. Thank you

I am looking for any information on Edward Prentice or Addison Dale Prentice. Not sure if he is the same man. He married Mary Ball. His parents are William james Prentice and Elsie Jane Sine. He has brothers named Clarence and Audrey butch and a sister named Buelah Augusta. He was born in 1880 or 1885 in Illinois and supposedly died in 1980 or 1985 in Pennsylvania. His wife Mary died in Bellaire Ohio in 1917. They had 4 children Eleanor Prentice Fernbach, Ezekiel Emerson Prentice , William Prentice and Emmett Prentice.

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
