We know that the immigrant Henry Prentice of Cambridge, MA, had some roots in Doddinghurst, Essex Co., England, which lies approximately 10 miles SW of Chelmsford.

One of his ancestors, Albon Prentis was baptized on 3 March 1566 in Earls Colne. He is named in his father's 1586 Will. Albon may have d. in Doddinghurst, Essex. We do not know his wife's name. The known children of Albon are:

  2. Lawrence Prentis born in 1611, Doddinghurst, Essex, and d. at the age of 3 on 17 Apr 1614 (per IGI).
  3. Margaret Prentis born in 1615; she married Thomas Glascock on 26 Oct 1641 in Doddinghurst.
