Who are Archibald Prentice's Parents>

Even if we infer that Alexander Prentice was born in Carluke, where his daughter, Christian, was b. in 1764, the identity of Archibald Prentice is still unclear:

  1. He might be the Archibald Prentice, b. 8 Aug 1731, Carluke, son of Archibald Prentice and Janet Thomson.
  2. He might be the Archibald Prentice, b. 8 Nov 1731, Carluke, son of Alexander Prentice and Margaret Russell.
  3. He probably is not the Archibald Prentice, b. 30 Jan 1834, Carluke, son of John Prentice and Janet Scoular. We show him as d. 1847, died aged 13 in our article at
  4. He probably is not the Archibald Prentice, b. 27 Jan 1745, Carluke, son of Alexander Prentice and Margaret Gilkerson, since Archibald's wife is shown in the IGI as chr. 1733.
