Henry Neale Prentice of Lambeth, Surrey, England

Summer 2002 and Revised 5 Aug 2006

Update of 5 Aug 2006: Henry Neale Prentice is the son of Henry Prentice. This material has now been incorporated into our Fall 2006 article about Henry Prentice of Saint Martins in the Field .

We are helping John Cornelius and Kerry Prentice with the following family. With the help of Ian Prentice by his email of 21 Jun 2002, here is what we have so far:

1. Henry Neale Prentice was b. the September quarter 1842 in Westminster, Middlesex, England and d. June quarter 1928, Wandsworth, at the age of 85. He appears in the 1881 census living at 126 Westminster Rd., Lambeth, Surrey. His occupation was that of a Stationer employing 4 men and 2 boys. His wife,

Henry m. Eliza Jane in the June quarter of 1868 in Islington. She was b. c. 1843 in Middlesex and d. Sep 1911 in Wandsworth, age 69. Children shown were:

  1. Edith J. Prentice, b. c. 1871, Lambeth. At home in 1901 census.
  2. Arthur H. Prentice, b. c. 1873, Lambeth.
  3. Ethel M. Prentice, b. c. 1877, Lambeth. At home in 1901 census.
  4. Constance M. Prentice, b. c. 1879, Lambeth. At h ome in 1901 census.
  5. Ernest W. Prentice, b. 1880, Lambeth.
  6. Winifred Prentice, b. 1883 Lambeth.

Ian Prentice relates that he can find no trace of a marriage or death for any of the children which suggests that perhaps they might all have emigrated independently of their parents.

Who are Henry Prentice's Parents?

Although further investigation is needed for confirmation, it seems likely that Henry is the Henry Prentice who appears in the 1851 census in St. Martin in the Fields, Middlesex, as b. c. 1843 in Westminster, St. Johns, son of Henry Prentice, b. c. 1811 at St. Martins (shown as London, London, Middlesex in the 1881 census), and his wife, Mary, b. c. 1813, Speen, Berkshire.

Since Henry's middle name is "Neale," it is especially interesting that in the 1851 and 1881 household appears a cousin, Emily Neale, b. c. 1811, Speen, Birkshire.

Other children of Henry and Mary (in addition to Henry) appearing in the 1851 household are:

  1. Ellen Mary Prentice, b. c. 1847, London, London, Middlesex (per 1881 census). At home in 1881.
  2. Percy W. Prentice, b. c. 1849, Islington (per 1881 census). At home in 1881.
  3. Catherine Prentice, b. c. 1852, London, London, Middlesex (per 1881 census). At home in 1881.
