I'm the daughter of Elizabeth M Knapp who was the daughter of Jacob Dewald Knapp who was the son of Joseph Knapp and Margaret Dewald.
The information showing in regards to the marriage of Jacob Knapp to Bertha is incorrect. She was not a Reynolds but a Renfroe. I also will be glad to send you the info in regards to my mom Elizabeth and her first marriage to my dad Victor Bray.

My wife is a William Prentis descendant. In reading the story on William Prentis, the only issues I have about the of marriage William Prentis to Mary Brooke. They were married before 1726 when John Brooke wrote his will leaving his house to daughter Mary Prentis. He had sold a small house on this property to William Prentis in 1724. John Brooke ran an ordinary in 1714 in this residence. William Prentis and Mary Brooke's daughter, Sarah married William Waters who lived only 2 doors down Duke of Gloucester Street.
Williamsburg was not an independent town or city back than. It was split down the middle of Duke of Gloucester Street, the north side was York County and the south side was James City County. Mary Brooke probably was born in her father's house on Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, York County. The Prentis Store is down Duke of Gloucester Street on the York County side.
York County land probate and other court records survived the Civil War because the clerk buried them instead of sending them to Richmond for protection as required. Unfortunately the James City County records were sent to Richmond and were accidently destroyed in a fire set by the departing government of the Confederacy.
In the last few years, Colonial Williamsburg has been conducting archeological research on the lot next to the store and has located the foundation of the original store owned by Archibald Blair where William Prentis had started his work.
Research information on the Prentis House and Store can be found online under the digital library research tab of the Colonial Williamsburg Rockefeller Library.

Hi, I am a descendant of John Prentice, The Laird of Stane. I am heading to Scotland in Jan 2018 to try to see some landmarks of my ancestors. Can anyone confirm that The Laird of Stane's property is now the Thornmuir ruins near Carluke, Lanarkshire?
Also, I have seen some information that John Prentice son Archibald (born in 1655) was a covenanter. I have also seen a page where Archibald, in Staine "fails to report conventicles". His wife Jean was "examined about the Enterkin attack". There is also mention of John Prentice which says "his heirs fail to take test". Does anyone know the story to this?
Why wasn't the title of "Laird" handed down to son?
Appreciate any help on this.

I already signed in in 2013 as I was really just getting interested in Genealogy at the time as I was retiring and had more time on my hands. I see that the Scottish Prentices of Carluke and the surrounding areas are rather thin on the ground although there are still many of us in the Central belt of Scotland. But I am stuck at John Prentice, The Laird of Stane born in 1620 and died in 1685. He was gifted the land at Stane (Stone) by Lockhart for saving his life in Battle and appears to be the first of the Prentices to be found in the area at that time. All other Prentices appear to come from the south of England, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and many of those such as Valentine Prentice emigrated to the Americas in the first ships leaving for the new world. But back to John Prentice....... does anybody have any record of who his parents could be please? I know he was born in 1620 in Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire but can not find a record of his parents...... On the other hand in other lines of my family, not the Prentices unfortunately, I am a direct descendant of William the Conqueror and Robert The Bruce....... so there must be some good genes in the family!! Thank you and look forward to reading you all - if I can help in Scotland then I will do whatever I can!! Cynthia

I signed up with Ancestry a couple months ago & thought I'd surf a little to see if I could find info on PRENTICE. Coulda knocked me over with a feather when I found a whole site for our family! Think you may be seeing a lot of me. ðŸ˜Š Btw, what's with all these financial ads jammin' up your guestbook? Must be very hard to run a board - you have my admiration & sympathies. I hope I can be of service.

I stumbled onto this very interesting site. I am originally from Danvers Ma., and lived a half mile from Old Salem Village and the Rebecca Nurse House . Salem Village is where the witch event of the 1690's occured.The unfortunate individuals were the tried and sentenced in Salem, five miles away. Rebecca was in her 90's, I beleive. There is a Prentiss buried in the grave yard on the Nurse historical property from that era.

Hi everyone! I'm Charles Thomas Prentice, son of Thomas Richard Prentice and Grandson of Charles Francis Prentice. I'm so super stoked to find a website dedicated to the family legacy, especially since my immediate family is tragically dropping like flies. It sure is super nice to have access to distant relatives and familial history, I can't wait to learn all I can about my familys exploits through out the generation. My grandmother Helen Prentice (maiden name Halbert) was quite the accomplished geneologist and managed to trace her family line back to 1702 Ireland, but when asked how far she was able to trace Grandpas line back she was only able to trace back about six generations or so. She joked saying "there must have been a horse thief back there" LOL. Any way, lots of love, and I look forward to learning more about us from everyone!

I have also researched Prentice family as my husband was adopted. He was originally born to Rosemary Diamond and Donald Insley, which are two more lines I fully researched. Great site.
