A. Thomas Prentice may have been b. c. 1740-1750. The name of his wife is not known. What little we do know about Thomas comes from a court decision reported at English Reports in Law and Equity which read as follows:

    A testator [Thomas Prentice] [who d. Nov 1779] devised [by Will of 26 Sep 1775] an estate to his daughter for life, and after her the children of the body of his daughter lawfully begotten. . .the testator's daughter had 2 children during her life. . . [and] the Will contained specific devises, in similar. . terms, of other parts of the said testator's copyhold estates and his freehold estates to his son Thomas Eagles Prentice and his daughter Mary Ann Prentice. [It later discusses another daughter, Henrietta Prentice and her husband an family.
