John Prentice of Hutchestown, Scotland

John Prentice of Hutchestown, Lanark, Scotland

We are helping Allison Prentice Gardner in tracing the ancestry of her John Prentice of Hutchestown, Lanarkshire, who was b. c. 1792 (per IGI).

He married Margaret Duncan on 6 Dec 1817 at Lesmahagow. She was b. c. 1796 (per IGI). The IGI and GRO show the following children for them:

  • Agnes Prentice, b. 3 Apr 1818.
  • James Prentice, b. 26 Sep 1819. (See our Spring 2000 article)
  • Thomas Prentice, b. 17 Jul 1821.
  • John Prentice, b. 12 Jun 1823.

Allison has suggested that Margaret Duncan may have died after John's birth on 12 Jun 1823, and that John may be the same person as the John Prentice who later married Jean Torrence at some date prior to 1826 when the first child of John and Jean was born. For more about them, see our Winter 2005 article at John Prentice of Lesmahagow . So far there is no documentary evidence to support that theory, but Allison is looking for evidence which would establish the date of Margaret Duncan's death.

Who are John Prentice's Parents?

We note that John Prentice married Margaret Duncan in Lesmahagow in 1817. That date suggests John may have been born about 1790-97. If one were to assume, solely for investigative purposes, that John was born in Lesmahagow, then he may be the son of James Prentice and Marian Brown/Broun and grandson of Thomas Prentice of Lesmahagow.
