Who are Thomas Prenty's Parents?

The surname spelling, Prenty, is most unusual. However, a search of St. Catherine's Index of Deaths in England beginning in 1837 showed only 2 deaths:

  1. Jun Quarter, 1867, Thomas Prentys, 50 (b. c. 1817), Strand
  2. Dec Quarter, 1912, Rosa F. Prentys, 66 (b. c. 1846), Strand.

Allowing for some spelling variation in the surname, there appears to have been a large number of families of that name in Strand in the center of London (the church in the area was known a St. Mary Le Strand) and nearby Westminster. We found the following listing in the St. Cathereine's Index and in the IGI:
