Winter 2006 and Revised 4 Jul 2011

Update of 4 Jul 2011: Josiah Prentice is #3.30 in our Winter 2004 article entitled John Prentice of Carluke, Scotland . That article now replaces this article.

Kerry Prentice has provided us with Prentice information which we report in in our Spring 2003 article about Josiah Prentice of Southwark, England and our Summer 2003 article about James Prentice of Edinborough, Scotland, etc. . We have now consolidated those earlier articles into this later article and have have augmented with census information.

1. Josiah Prentice was b. 9 May 1802, Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire, Scotland, and d. either (1) 17 Nov 1850 in Bloomsbury, London, or (2) Dec 1850, St. Giles, London, Middlesex. He may have continued to live in Scotland until some date after the birth of his son, James, in 1826 in Scotland. Thereafter he appears in English census records. A Painter, he appears in the 1841 census in St. George the Martyr, Surrey, England with his family.

He m. Eliza Winsborrow, in 1939. Both then lived at 2 Wycomb Place, Kent Road, St Georges the Martyr, Southwark. Eliza Winsborrow was b. 22 Mar 1804 and bap. 14 Oct 1804, St Saviours, Southwark. She was the dau. of Richard and Ann Winsborrow.b. c. 1806 Surrey.

    Note: At least 2 of the childen shown below were b. before 1839, so she might have been a 2nd wife.

    By email of 6 Oct 2010, John Watt says that he thinksJosiah's first marriage, where he is recorded as Joseph Prentice, was to Jean Gow on 24 Jan 1826 at St Cuthberts Edinburgh and that Josiah is also recorded as a Painter which fits with later records. James Prentice b c1826 would be from this marriage. John Watt says he does not know what became Jean Gowl but suspects she died. John also poses a question as to why Josiah would change his name to Joseph in Edinburgh.
