Who are James W. Prentis' Parents?

Because of the middle initial, "W" and the somewhat unusual spelling of his surname, James might be the James W. Prentis shown in the 1881 census in England who was b. c. 1867 at Huddersfield, York, England, son of James T. Prentis, age 38 and b. c. 1843, who, in 1881 was living at Springwood House, Huddersfield, York, England. They may also be the James Prentis who m. Mary Goodill on 8 Aug 1831, Saint Peter, Leeds.

James W. Prentis' household in the 1881 census is shown as follows:

 James T. Prentis		38  	 Leeds, York, England	Sec. & Mgr.Coop Socy   
 Mary (Goodill?) Prentis	43  	 Leeds, York, England  	   	  
 Annie M. M. Prentis		17  	 Huddersfield, York, England  	   	  
 Lucy A. Prentis		16  	 Huddersfield, York, England  	   	  
 James W. Prentis		14  	 Huddersfield, York, England   (see above)
 Florence E. Prentis		12  	 Huddersfield, York, England 
 Frank A. Prentis		9  	 Huddersfield, York, England	  

Finally, but tentatively, the James T. Prentis, age 38 and b. c. 1843, might be James Prentis, b. 18 Aug 1809 in Leeds who appears as #10ix in our spring 2001 article on the Prentices of Bilton Ainsty, etc.
