Who are Henry Prentis' Parents?

A search of census records in England from 1841 forward does not disclose any other Prentis or Prentice born in Sible Hedingham other than the 1851 Sible Hengham census which shows a Matilda Prentice, b. c. 1842, visiting Ann Prentice, b. c. 1800 in Glemsford, Suffolk. Ann was a Housekeep in the home of David Rush of Sible Hedingham.

One could hypothesize that Ann Prentice was the mother of Matilda Prentice and that perhaps was the mother of, or sister to Henry Prentis.
