Note: This article has now been replaced with a more comprehensive article in our Fall 2000 Prentice Newsletter which has also been renamed as Prentices of Palgrave, England

Original article: By E-mail of 20 Nov 1998, we received the following information from Ian Prentice,
our English correspondent. He thought the information would be of interest to
readers of our Newsletter, and we thought so, too. His information is as follows:

ANCESTRY OF ROBERT OF IPSWICH

    "You asked for the line of Robert's son John who emigrated to Philadelphia. Since it is the same as mine, I'll not stop with the families of John's siblings, but keep going to the present."

____________________

C.	John Prentice, The Elder, b. c. 1260-1300, was a Merchant of Bury St. Edmunds 
was recorded there in 1319 when he was tried for plotting to kill Richard de Foxon, 
the King's Clerk.  Children:
	1.  (probably) Robert Prentice, b. c. 1280-1300.			[B]

B.	Robert Prentice, b. c. 1280-1300, the earlies proved ancestor, was recorded 
in the manorial court rolls of Palgrave in Suffolk, almost on the Norfolk border. 
It is probable that he is the younger son of JOHN the Elder, a Merchant of 
Bury St. Edmunds who was recorded there in 1319 whn he was tried for plotting 
to kill Richard de Foxon, the King's Clerk.  Robert held 35 acres in the manor 
of Palgrave (owned by the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds) in 1328 and he died some time 
after 1342.   Children:
	i. 	Robert Prentice.						[A]


A.	Robert Prentice, b. c. 1330-1360, son of Robert [B], was recorded as a 
copyhold tenant of the manor of Palgrave in 1386 and was a Juror in the manorial 
court many times. His wife was called Margaret and he had died by 1405. 	
Children:
	i.	Hugh Prentice							[1]
	ii.	(perhaps) Marion Prentice, living 1406.

1.	Hugh Prentice, b. c. 1350, presumably the youngest son, was first mentioned 
in the manorial court rolls in 1388 and was a Juror until 1439. (Elder sons in 
Suffolk tended not to inherit their father's property so -or because - they usually 
moved away to make their own way in life). He seems to have died in 1438/9 and 
his wife's name was Margaret. He seems to have had a sister called Marion who was 
alive in 1406. He had at least four children. 
	i.	Adam Prentice of Bury St. Edmunds is almost certainly a son. 
		He died in 1474 and his wife Margaret died in 1475. They had no 
		male heirs.
	ii. 	Hugh Prentice who was recorded in the Palgrave court roll in 1445 
		but subsequently moved away from the village. He was probably 
		the grandfather of Hugh who died in banham, Norfolk in 1584.
	iii. 	John Prentice, b. c. 1400.. 					[2].
	iv. 	Isabelle Prentice who died before 1483.

2. 	John Prentice, b. c. 1400, held 30 acres of land in Palgrave in 1439 
having been given land by his father in 1435 and 1437. His wife was Margaret 
who had died before 1483 though he seems to have had a previous marriage to 
Elizabeth who is recorded in 1435. John died in 1483 leaving a will and had 
five children. John's children were:
	i. 	William Prentice who died in 1492 and had a son John who was 
		recorded in Palgrave in 1494 and 1513. John's descendants 
		lived in Stoke Ash, Suffolk for three generations.

		was living in Palgrave in 1524.

from 1483 to 1499. He died in 1509 leaving a will and was married to Catherine 
who died in 1539. He had four children:

		further two generations in and around Palgrave.

			8 Sep 1715 and Samuel Prentice baptised on 25 Dec 1722 
			both of whom have defied my efforts to trace them.
