PRESCOTT

 

Preface

My father Arthur Prescott was born in 1897 in Widnes, Lancashire, my ancestors are mainly found in Widnes and Farnworth. My own line as far as I can be reasonably sure of it is here.

Origins of Prescott name

Spelling variations

Prescott appears in several variations:

Prescott, Prescot, Prestcot, Prestcote, Prestcott, Prescotte, Prescote, Prescod

 

Prescott
English: habitation name from any of the places so called, in SW Lancs. (Now Merseyside), Gloucs., Oxon., and Shrops. (two), all of which are named from OE preost Priest + cot cottage, dwelling (see Coates). The surname is most common in N England, and so it seems likely that the first of these places is the most frequent source.

Indeed there are records of Prescots in Prescot Lancashire from the 14th century.

 

Robert [de Eccleston] died between 1306 (De Banc. R. 161, m. 365 d.) and Sept. 1315, when his widow Isabel gave to Roger de Prescot, clerk, and his wife and children land near the house of Henry Halshagh and below Lystanhurst Field; Add. MS. 32107, n. 371.

 

In 1339 Robert de Prescot secured a sixth part of the 'manor' of Glest from Mariota, wife of William del Hull of Bickerstaffe; Final Conc. ii, 110…

 

Location

I have mainly concentrated my own family research in the 19th and 20th century to Prescot district, in order to make it more manageable. Most Prescots in early records are in the following districts.

History of the Prescott Name – the following must be considered to be apocryphal

According to the Family Heritage Crest scroll:

 

The family Prescott emerged as a notable family in the county of Devonshire where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated as Lords of the Manor of Pres[t]cot and estates in that shire.[i][i]  They branched north to Shevington in Lancashire and to Derby (sic) in Lincolnshire.[i][i]  They also branched to Theobald's Park in Hertfordshire.  The main stem, however ended in an heiress in Devon and married into the Almescombe family.  Notable amongst the families at this time was Sir Theobald Prescott.

           

The author of The Families of Standish and Prescott of Standish, Frederick Lewis Weiss does not seem to know of this origin of the Prescotts in Devon he places their origins solidly in Lancashire.  He quotes:

 

Dr. Kuerden, describing the road between Wigan and Preston, writing in 1695, declared: "Having passed Standish you come to the Quaker's - - then crossing a little arched bridge of stone you pass over Coppul More, and on the right-hand leave Blainsco Hall belonging to the ancient family of the Worthingtons; a little above which stands Coppul Chapell and near to it the ancient seat of the Prestcots, now the estate and residence of Captain Ward" (Local Gleanings, no. 378, p211).

 

The above histories do not conflict because when the latter was written some 300 years had elapsed since the Devonian line came to an end. 

 

The manor and family did exist in Devon here is a reference to it:

Ian Mortimer has produced a splendid Guide to the Manors of Devon, which provides a detailed listing of Devon's over two thousand manors, linking them with the parishes in which they were situated, together with short histories of those manors that were located in Cliston, Hemyock and Tiverton hundreds.[i][i]

"Prescott [Status: d], or Prestcot, in Culmstock parish and Hemyock hundred (EPNS, p614).

Probably not manorial, although the detail in Lysons suggests it was an early (?freehold) estate. It was the property of the Prestcot family at an early period. In the reign of Henry IV [1367-1413] the last male member of the family gave it to William Almescombe on condition of him taking the name of Prestcot. Later it came to the family of Barnhouse, and from them by successive marriages to the families of Southcote and Ridgway. Sir George Cary of Cockington bought it from Lord Ridgway: it was subsequently sold in parcels (Lysons, p151). White does not mention it in 1850."

 

The Heritage Quest scroll goes on to say:

Amongst the settlers in North America were John Prescott settled in Watertown in 1640, he was of the Shevington branch.  Henry Prescott settled in Maryland; John Prescott[i][i] settled in Virginia in 1653; and George Prescott settled in Philadelphia in 1852."

 

This history is now clearly challenged. It is now considered unlikely that John Prescott was of the Shevington branch.

 

I have a history of the descendants of Richard de Prestcote. This is based upon published genealogy, I am checking it with the parish records as available.

 

Prescot Arms: Various arms of Prescot are listed.

It is of note that the arms of the Devon branch and the Lancashire branch appear to be related. But this may not be more than circumstantial proof of a relation. It is possible that the later arms were awarded on the basis of a belief in the connection.

 

 

Prescots of Prescot and Standish

Descendancy

  • The following is a bare bones overview of the Prescots. Where dates are ‘about’ or ‘estimated’ then of course exact dates have not been found (as far as I am aware).
  • Where the date is given as a year then the exact date of baptism, marriage or burial (occasionally death) is known.
  • Although the earliest family that seems to be reasonably well documented is that of William of Coppul, it can not be assumed that all the later families are descendants of this family. Although the numbers of later families are not inconsistent with this possibility (or perhaps one generation back), it is possible that we are simply seeing an artifact of the lack of records.
  • Names have been normalized to Prescott. In earlier records spelling was not standardized even the same family will often appear as Prescot or Prescott or Preskot(t), or Presket etc.

Prescots of Eccleston

 

Sept. 1315, [Robert de Eccleston’s] widow Isabel gave to Roger de Prescot, clerk, and his wife and children land near the house of Henry Halshagh and below Lystanhurst Field;

 

1339 Robert de Prescot secured a sixth part of the 'manor' of Glest from Mariota, wife of William del Hull of Bickerstaffe; Final Conc. ii, 110

 

[note: this could be the same Robert as shown by Weiss – see above]

 

1340 Edmund de Prescot (son of Robert) sued Adam son of Roger de Glest and Robert his brother for depasturing and treading down his corn at Glest; Duchy of Lanc. Assize R. 1, m. iij; see R. 4, m. 14; 5, m. 7.

 

1355 The same Edmund was party to a fine concerning lands in Eccleston in 1355 (Final Conc. ii, 147), and appears in the Eccleston rental of 1373 as holding 'divers lands' for a total rent of 2s. 2½d.

 

1374 He was ordered to be imprisoned for debt in 1374, but could not be found; among other tenements he had a hall, kitchen, and oxhouse at Eccleston; De Banc. R. 454, m. 141d

 

1384 The bounds of Eccleston in 1384 are thus described in a deed in the Prescot town chest: 'Beginning at the Wellsyke, …..from Whitlow carrs to a certain ditch between Knowsley and the land of Roger Prescott in Eccleston, and following the said ditch to Deishurst lane, ….which is the first division.'

 

1480 The earl of Derby was a freeholder also. From the Eccleston rental of the time of Edw. IV (about 1480) it appears that Thomas Lord Stanley's interest was derived from purchases of land which had been held by James de Prescot, at a rent of 2s. 0½d. (cf. Edmund de Prescot's rent above quoted); by Agnes de Stonyhurst at 6d.; and by Eustace the Mercer. Further purchases brought up the rental payable by Thomas earl of Derby about 1520 to 3s. 7½d. and by William earl of Derby in 1609 to 4s. Part of their holding was in Glest, as is shown by the inquisitions of Henry Coney of Ditton (1598) and John Parr of Glest, who had bought Coney's lands; Lancs. Inq. p.m. (Rec. Soc. Lancs. and Ches.), ii, 182.

 

The rental of the time of Hen. VIII (1509-1547) shows Edward Prescot tenant of a messuage, rent 6d.;

Prescots of Prescot and Standish, Lancashire

Generation 1 – Prescot, Coppul, Standish

At present there is not enough information to be sure if Edward was born in mid 1400s or late 1400s. He could be a generation earlier than William of Coppul or he could be a contemporary.

 

Edward Prescot born possibly in mid 1400s (or late 1400s if he died young), burial 1524 Prescot

Possibly father of John and Robert (Robert’s first known son named Edward)

 

Could he be the father of William of Coppul whose eldest son was named Edward.

 

1509-1547 during the time of Henry VIII Edward Prescot rental of 6d

Generation One point Five

 

John Prescott of Eccleston possibly born in late 1400s, burial before 1542?

John could be son of Edward and father of Robert below or

John and Robert could be contemporary children of Edward

Married: Margaret

Children could include William born about 1537

 

Burial 4.6.1542 Mergret the late wyf of John (pre)scott of eccleston

 

Coppul Standish

Not all the descendants of William of Coppul are documented. James of Standish is documented in detail, but there are several families two generations on, that do not fit with James: three families of Standish, and at least one of Ormskirk. Edward is described as the eldest son of William and ‘left issue’. There are five families of Standish in the second generation from William so it seems possible that at least one other son of William had children besides James and Edward.

 

A. William Prescot abt. 1484, Coppul, died before 1548, Coppul

Parents: Said to be James Prescot

Married: Alice. Children of William and Alice:

Edward, born abt. 1503, died 1579, Standish, married Johanna.

and left issue” – Weiss. There are several Prescots in Standish in the next generation that could be his children

Rev. Peter,  born abt. 1505, Coppul (Prior of Upholland)

Richard, born abt. 1506, Coppul, died 1562 Standish

            There is a Richard of the next generation, buried in Standish.

Johanna, born abt. 1507, Coppul, died 1562?

James, born abt. 1508, Coppul, died 1568 Standish. Married: Alice Standish

            The family of James of Standish is well documented

Rev. John born abt 1510 Curate of Hallsall 1558

Dr. Henry, born abt. 1514, Coppul, died 1563 Standish

            There is a Henry of the next generation buried in Standish

Robert, born abt. 1516, Coppul died 1558, Standish

            There are several Robert Prescotts in subsequent generations that are not accounted for

Thomas, born abt. 1518, Coppul, died 1581 Standish

A Thomas Prescot married in Croston in 1540&42, and there is another Thomas having children in Croston in 1580s.

 

 


 Generation 2 –Prescot, Ormskirk, Standish,

Prescot

Baptism Records: begin in 1540 the years are fairly complete until 1556. Indicating just one family of Prescot having children Baptised.

 

Marriage records begin in 1538/39/40 with an isolated document, then there is a gap 1540-48 before the marriage records proper begins.

 

Burial Records for 1521-1539  are shown in {} these are taken from the churchwarder accounts and appear to be very fragmentary. The burial register poper starts in 1539.

 

There are three male Prescot burials in 1570s, There are three female Prescot marriages in Prescot and Huyton in the 1580s and 1590s, and there are two Prescots, Robert and Henry, having children baptized in Prescot in the 1590s and 1600s; so estimated births in the 1560s or early 1570s. Most likely common ancestor based upon this generation of marriages and baptisms would be in the 1530s or 1540s. Given the evidence of more than one family in this time period a common ancestor would seem likely in the 1510s or 1520s.

William bapt 1 Jan 1569

 

Ann Prescott born estimated 1544

            Married: Peter Tyrer 23 August 1569 St. Mary’s Prescot

 

Female Marriages in 1580s/90s, Baptisms for male Prescots begin in 1598 for Robert and 1602 for Henry. So could suggest that common ancestor of the following two Prescotts in 1530s. Could be William above.

 

Ormskirk

The entries for Ormskirk begin in 1557. The entries are missing parent’s names. But suggest Prescots born estimated 1533 and/or in the 1540s. The number of families in the 1530/40s period could suggest a common ancestor Prescot born about 1508. This is contemporary with the children of James Prescot in Standish. And so we can not be sure if these are distinct line. There are other families of Standish in the next generation that could certainly be his descendants. We know that Edward the eldest son of William of Coppul ‘left issue’. A Thomas Prescott was married in Croston in 1540s who could be Thomas son of William of Coppul.

 

X. ? Prescot born 1508.

Could be:

  1. Son of Prescot of Prescot
  2. Son  of William of Coppul, or
  3. James of Standish.
  4. A previous Prescot of Ormskirk

 

XX. ? Prescott [Peter Sr?] born estimated 1533, baptism records start in 1560/61,

XY. ?  Prescott [William Sr.?] born estimated 1533, baptism records start in 1560/61,

Many of the early entries do not show the fathers name and so could be:

A.      an earlier Prescot of Ormskirk,

B.      Son of James of Standish, and/or

C.     Among the following.

Peter Prescott born est. 1542 (or earlier) Ormskirk, children’s dates suggest two Peters. (Could be Peter above)

William born est. 1543 (or earlier), Ormskirk

Henry born est. 1543 (or earlier), Ormskirk

Robert born est. 1544 (or earlier), Ormskirk

George born est. 1544 (or earlier), Ormskirk

Richard born est. 1547, Ormskirk

Any of above could be son of James of Standish 1509 or grandson of William of Coppul.

Names are consistent with the families of Standish.

 

Standish

Standish baptism records start in 1560. The family of James Prescot and Alice Standish is well documented, but there are some entries that do not fit their family, especially in the next generation, suggesting a few missing links with some of the other children of William of Coppul.

 

? Prescot (??) born about 1508

Edward Prescott is known to have left issue. But it seems likely that other children of William also left issue. Children of these Prescotts:

 

William Prescot (?,?) born abt 1535 of Standish, died 1574/75?

married Alice.

 

Thurston Prescot born abt 1537 of Standish died 1585

Married: Grace

 

Edward Prescot Born abt 1540, of Standish, died 1579

Married: Margaret

 

Nicholas Prescot born abt. 1543, of Standish, died 1584

Married: Hanna

 

John Prescot born abt. 1547, of Standish, died 1585

 

The following burials are also not accounted for, (names match Ormskirk Prescotts)

 

Richard Prescott buried 1564 not Richard son of William, or Richard son of James

 

William Prescott buried 1574/75 not William who married Alice, or William who married Margaret

 

Henry Prescott buried 1579 not henry son of William

 

Note in the next generation the number of families that are not linked to James of Standish is much smaller. Suggesting that few of the above had families, or could this be a clue to the origin of the Prescott families that appear in Wigan, Ormskirk and Prescot in the next generation?

 


Children of William of Coppul

AA. Edward Prescot (William) born 1503 died 1579, eldest son 1548 [Weiss

            Married: Joane Children: ‘left issue’ [Weiss]

This Edward is the main contender to be father of some of the Prescotts of Standish that are not children of James..

            Children: see above

 

AB. Richard Prescott (William) died 1562 Standish.

 

AC. Rev. Peter Prescot (William) presumably no children

 

AD. James Prescot (William) born abt 1508, died 1568 Standish

Married: Alice Elizabeth Standish; Children of James and Alice:

Sir James born abt.1527 Standish, Lincolnshire, died 1582/3 Driby, Lincs.

Roger born 20 Aug 1528, Shevington, married Elizabeth Locker then Elizabeth Shaw Died 1594 in Shevington.

Alice born abt. 1533

William born abt.1534 married Margaret then Matilda Holt, died in Coppul 1605

Ralph born abt. 1534 married Marjery, died 1571

Robert born abt. 1535 married Ellen, then Elizabeth Nightingale, died 1595 Standish

John born abt. 1549 married Joan, Marjery then Ann

Joan born abt. 1540

Ellen born abt. 1544

Katherine born abt. 1546

Isabella born abt. 1550

Richard born abt. 1552 married Ann Toogood, died 1584 Standish          

 

AE. Rev John Prescot (William) born abt 1510 presumably no children

 

AF. Dr. Henry Prescot (William) born abt 1514

 

AG. Robert Prescot (William) born abt 1516 died 1558 Standish

            Given that there are several Roberts in following generations in Standish, Ormskirk, Wigan and Prescot, it seems possible that Robert had children.

 

AH. Thomas Prescot (William) born abt 1518

According to Weiss among some of the earliest Parish records are:

Thomas Prescot m Jane Strickland 1540 Croston, Lancashire.

Thomas Prescot m. Mary Watkinson 1542 Croston, Lancashire.

These could belong to Thomas son of William of Coppul. There are a number of baptisms in Croston in the 1580s, three do not show a parent, one shows father as Thomas. Entries in the next generation of Standish show children of three Prescots who are possibly children of a son of William of Coppul

A Thomas Prescot died 1585 in Standish

 


Generation 3 – Prescot, Ormskirk & Standish

Prescot

Notes: Prescot records start in 1538. So far only from 1579/1580 have been transcribed; the earliest records so far are burials and marriages in St. Mary’s Prescot.  The entries for Prescot in St. Mary’s, Prescot, registers could suggest a common ancestor born about 1533. This would be contemporary with the children of James Prescot and Alice Elizabeth Standish in Standish, or of another son of William.

 

Katherine Prescot born estimated 1560

Could be child of William Above

Married: Richard Kokerem 2 Jul 1581, St. Mary’s Prescot

 

Ja(n)e Prescot born estimated 1563

Jane (baptism not found, buried 1613

Em (baptism not found, buried 1615

Henri Jun. baptized 2 Apr 1615, St. Mary’s Prescot, buried 1645 –see below

See Henry Jun. in next generation

 

A Henry Prescot Jun died in 1645 then the following is presumably Henry Sr.:

Died: Henricus of Prescot burial 19.6.1648         St. Mary’s Prescot

 

Ormskirk

The entries for Ormskirk begin in 1557, but unfortunately many entries, especially the earliest do not show the fathers name, and none show the mothers’ names. There is no clear generational gap in records which suggests that the Prescots had been established in Ormskirk for more than two generations. The density of baptisms in 1550s and 1560s suggest (at least) two Prescotts having children in this time period.  There are apparently no Prescot marriages between Elizabeth in 1562 and Hugh in 1571 which may be an indication of where the generations split.

 

XX. (?Peter?) Prescot probably born about 1533

XY. (?William?) Prescot probably born about 1533

Could be:

A.  Sons of James Prescott of Standish, or

B. Sons of a sibling of James (i.e. descended from William)

C. Descendants of a sibling of William of Coppul

 

     The following marriages appear in Ormskirk registers

Margerie born estimated 1537 Married  Thomas Keywick 1558 Ormskirk

Elizabeth  born estimated 1541 Married Thomas Waynewright 1562 Ormskirk

There are no further marriages until 1571 which could suggest the end of one generation.         

Margaret  born estimated 1552 Married: Adame Barton 1573 Ormskirk

 

The following Prescots appear as fathers in Ormskirk baptism from 1570.

Henry born estimated 1543 (or earlier)

George born estimated 1544 (or earlier)

Robert born est. 1544 (or earlier)

Peter (II) Prescott born about 1546

Hugh Prescott born about 1546, marriage 1571

William (II) Pescott born estimated 1556

Thomas Prescott born about 1556,

Richard Prescott born about 1556

Xstopher Prescot born about 1560, marriage 1580

 

The following baptisms appear in Ormskirk records but no father named. There are clearly two Prescotts of the previous generation.

 

William, bapt 1560/1 Ormskirk

George, 1562 Ormskirk

Jane, bapt 1562/3 Ormskirk

Ellen, 1563 Ormskirk

Marjery, 1564 Ormskirk

            Emlin 1573 Ormskirk

Henry 1573 Ormskirk

Abraham 1575/6 Ormskirk

Elizabeth 1576

Henry 1573 father not named  appears in Ormskirk records, father in baptism entries after 1605

 

Entries after this for Richard (until 1588) and Thomas (baptisms until 1608) suggest that we are moving into the next generation. See next section

 

Standish

The family of William’s son James is well documented; however, there are several entries from Standish registers that do not appear to fit the family of James and Alice. Probably descended from William of Coppull; his son Edward is known to have had children. It is quite likely that at least one other son did also.

 

Richard Prescott born? buried 1564

            Not Richard son of William of Coppul.

            Presumably a grandson of William of Coppul

 

William Prescot (?,?) born abt 1535     died 1574 or 1575

Not William son of James because he married Margaret and Matilda. Could be

A.      A grandson of William of Coppul; Edward would seem most likely to have called his son William.

Married Alice, Children of William and Alice:

Could have had other children born before 1560.

[Robert Prescott born bef. 1560? see notes below first son named William.]

Thomas born and/or bapt 20 May 1562 Coppul or Standish

Note there is said to be a Thomas born Jun 1652 to William and Margaret, but I can not find him in Standish registers.

 

William Prescott born ? buried 1574 or 75.

            Only records is burial

            Would seem likely another grandson of William of Coppul.

 

Henry Prescott born? buried 1579

            Only record is burial

            Another grandson of William of Coppul.

 

Thurston Prescot born abt 1537

            Could be son of Edward son of William of Coppul

Married Grace, Children of Thurston and Grace:

Could have had children before 1560 – see Thurston born 1560 of Wigan

 [Robert Prescot born before 1560? (son named Thurston)]

John 1562/3

Helen 1565

Richard 1567

Marjery 1572

Marjery 1578

 

Edward Prescot Born abt 1540,

Could be son of Edward, son of William of Coppul. Only baptism found in 1567 so less likely than above to have had earlier children.

            Married: Margaret, Children of Edward and Margaret:

            Richard 1567, Standish

 

Nicholas Prescott born estimated 1543

            Could be son of Edward of another son of William of Coppul

            Helen 1570 Standish

A.      There was a John Prescott son of James (see below) but he had three marriages already

B.      Son of Edward, or another son of Wiliam of Coppul.

Married? Elizabeth Greenelle estimated 1572

            Richard Prescot or Greenelle born 1574 Standish

 

Children of James Prescott and Alice Standish

            Elizabeth 1572 Standish

            William 1575 Standish

            Joan abt 1575 Standish

         Married 2nd  Matilda Holt 1582

 

Weiss did not have access to the Standish records, many of the family above are said to be children of William and Matilda in online sources. The date of baptisms and the date of marriage to Matilda indicate that they were actually children of William and Margaret.

 

There are clearly two Thomases in the records. The Thomas who married Alice, and the Thomas who married Agnes Diccoson.

 

ABE. Ralph (James, William) born abt. 1534 died 1571

Generation 4 Standish, Ormskirk, Wigan, Croston, Eccleston, & Prescot,

Standish

There are a few entries that do not fit with the family of James of Standish.  A Robert is said to be son of Robert and Elizabeth Nightingale – but not found in Standish baptisms. It is strange that there are two Roberts neither of whom appears in baptisms. This could suggest that at least two other children of William of Coppul ‘left issue’ besides James.

Robert Prescott (?William+Alice?) born before 1560

  1. Possibly a son of William 1537 Standish  above (eldest child named William) or
  2. Son of Thurston, (second known child named Thurston).

It is of note that:

17 Aug 1558 burial Robert Prescott born abt 1516  son of William of Coppul

3 Feb 1565 marriage, Robert Prescott to Elizabeth Nightingale

3 Feb 1585 marriage Robert Prescott to Elizabeth Calurte, the last child of this marriage is born in 1597 so presumably can not be the same Robert whose burial is below.

9 Mar 1595 burial Robert Prescott of Standish, supposed Robert who married Nightingale

28 Sep 1609 burial Robert Prescot of Coppul

It would seem likely that there is another Robert, of Coppul born about (probably before) 1560, but does not appear in Standish baptisms . Possibly a child of one of the earlier families above.

Married Elizabeth Calurte 1586

William Prescott bapt 1594 Standish

Thurston Prescott bapt 1595 Standish

James Prescot bapt 1597 Standish

Thomas Prescott (William+Alice) born 1562 Standish
Married: Alice estimated 1585
John
1587 Standish
Margery 1594 Standish
Margaret
1589 Standish
Seth Prescott
1597 Standish

Could be: Richard 1567 son of Thurston and Grace – no marriage shown

Married Dorothy Holt 1598 Standish

Thomas 1599 Standish

Joan 1603 Standish

Margaret  1606 Standish

Isabel 26 Feb 1608 Richard Prescot, Standish

Robert Prescott (??) born about 1568, Wigan or Standish (bef 1560)
Only Robert known is Robert said to be son of Robert, born 1568, but baptism not found. This is not the same Robert as married Elizabeth Calurte above because Elizabeth is named in above entries after the marriage of Robert and Johanna.
Married Johanna Hollins in 1595 Standish

The following Thomas is said to be born in Jun 1562, but his baptism is not found in Standish registers and indeed this date clashes with the birth of Alexander.

Croston

Croston register are for 1543-1585/90

A Thomas Prescott married in Croston in 1540 and 42, (see above), He could have been Thomas son of William. Only one entry in Croston shows the fathers name.

James Prescott married Alice Baron  in Croston in 1603

Ellen Prescott married Thomas Rigby in Croston in 1603.

 

The gap between the 1540 marriages and the next generation is odd given the coverage of the registers.

           

Thomas? Prescott born estimated 1554

Are these children all children of Thomas?

Agnes 20 Nov 1581 Croston

            Edward 10 Jul 1586 Croston

            Elsab 7 Aug 1589 Croston

            Hugh 12 Jul 1595 Croston (only entry that shows father Thos)

Was James an earlier son of Thomas not recorded? Or

This Thomas was possibly the Thomas of Bispham buried in Croston in 1631.

Alice Prescot of Bispham buried in 1630. This could be Thomas and Alice parents of Seth born 1598 but some of the children’s dates seem to conflict.

John 1587 Standish
Margery 1594 Standish
Margaret
1589 Standish
Seth Prescott
1597 Standish

                                   

Eccleston

Eccleston records 1603-1694

The following have children baptized in Eccleston. As William of Eccle is the only person who appears as father in 1603- entries it is possible that they are all children of William. The next marriage in Eccleston in 1634 is probably Thomas son of William.

It is of note that Alexander Prescott Esq. married Martha Pemberton whose estates where in Eccleston.

 

Lawrence Prescot  of Parbold (see next generation) born estimated 1603

Most likely son of William below

 

William Prescott de Eccle  born estimated 1576/79

Could be:

A.    William born 1575 son of William and Margaret, but William not mentioned in Alexander’s will.

B.    William born 1575 Ormskirk, no sign of children in Ormskirk

Lawrence? See above

Thomas born before 1603?, burial Jul. 1613 Eccleston

William, bapt 1606 Eccleston

Adam, bapt. 1608 Eccleston

Thomas bapt. Mar 1613/14 Eccleston (presumably Thomas Prescot of Heskin in next generation)

 

William Prescott

Married Margaret Nalier 1618 (could be second marriage for William above, too young to be William 1606)

 

Cotemporary with these are the details of Thomas and Agnes.

 

Ormskirk

Entries begin about 1557

 

Thomas Prescott  born about 1551&

Thomas Prescott(s) (??) born about 1556

The following baptisms overlap so there must be two Thomases.

Jane 1578 Ormskirk

John 1580 Ormskirk

Alice 1583/4 Ormskirk

Roger 1583 Ormskirk

Elizabeth 1583 Ormskirk

John 1585 Ormskirk

William 1585 Ormskirk

Thomas 1588 Ormskirk

Mary 1588 Ormskirk

 

James Prescot born about 1553

  Edith 1580 Ormskirk

Richard Prescott born about 1556 (probably before 1557 records)
This could be Richard who married Ann Toogood, baptisms in Ormskirk are consistent with Standish. But burial in 1584 is suspect.
Children of Richard:
Elizabeth 1571 Standish
Geoffrey 1576 Standish
Margaret 1577 Standish
Anna 5 Oct 1580 Richard Prescot and Anne , Standish
William 7 Feb 1583 Richard Prescot, Ormskirk
Ellen 6 Aug 1585 Richard Prescot, Ormskirk
Elizabeth 12 Aug 1588 Richard Prescot, Ormskirk
Emmy 9 Jan 1590 Prescot, Ormkirk

Big gap is unexplained may be a different Richard
Ralph 9 Jan 1603 Richard Prescot, and Anne, Standish

George Prescot born 1562 (father not named in register)

Jane born 1590 Ormskirk

 

Robert Prescott born about 1568 (or possibly before 1557), of Ormskirk

This Robert does not appear among the Ormskirk baptisms that start in 1557.

A.    Henry born 1573 to unnamed

B.    Henry born 1579 to Hugh

C.    Henry born 1583

            Peter 1605

Wigan

Wigan registers transcripts start in about 1580

Lawrence Prescott son of Roger+Elizabeth, and Edward son of William+Margaret, had children in Wigan in this generation see entries under Standish above. There are other entries that I can not place with these see below. Alexander son of William and Margaret was born in 1561, his first child was born in London in 1594. It is possible that the first Alexander died and that this is actually the birth of Alexander of London. However Alexander is said to have apprenticed in London in 1580 so the source of that date would need checking.

 

William Prescott born about 1557

Could have been born Standish before 1560 see William 1537 of Standish.

Could have had children before 1580 (see Wigan in next section)

??

Alexander, 1581/2 Wigan.

Thomas Prescott or Holland 1588 Standish

Marjery or Margret 1591 Wigan

  1. Thurstan born 1537 a second marriage?
  2. Thurston born before 1560 in Standish
  3. Thurston born in Wigan before 1580 records.

Married: Marjery

Alice, burial 1592, Wigan

            John 1626 Ince

            This is the only birth that appears for Edward of Wigan in this time period

Elen 1606 Wigan

 

Prescot dist. (Prescot, Huyton)

Notes: Prescot records start in 1538. So far records searched from 1579/1580. There are three male Prescot burials in 1570s, There are three female Prescot marriages in Prescot and Huyton in the 1580s and 1590s, and there are two Prescots, Robert and Henry, having children baptized in Prescot in the 1590s and 1600s; so estimated births in the 1560s or early 1570s. Most likely common ancestor of these would be in the 1530s or 1540s.

Notes: The St. Mary’s Prescott extractions end at 1631/2. If complete, the lack of any Prescots after 1615 could suggest a complete generation. The Prescot baptism entries would be expected to resume after 1632 with the next generation. Which indeed they do with some further extractions in the IGI

Wigan

 

Edward Prescot of Wigan (Lawrence) born estimated 1598 (before 1580?)

Edward Prescot (Lawrence) of Wigan  born 1603

 

The only Edward baptized in Wigan about this date is the Edward born 1596 to Lawrence and Jane. However Weiss shows also shows Edward born in 1603 to Lawrence and Jane, but has the 1596 Edward as the father of all the children including two sets of twins. This seems somewhat curious. No others after 1580 when Wigan records began. Possibly a second marriage for Edward above.

I believe that the following belong to Edward born about 1596.

It would seem more likely that there were two Edwards.

 

Lawrence 1617 Wigan (son of Edward)

Peter    1619 Wigan (son of Edward of Wigan)

Ellen 1622 Wigan (dau of Edward of Wigan)

Margaret 1625 Wigan  according to Weiss twins

Prescot dist. (Prescot, Huyton, Childwall)

Prescot extracts at present only go up to 1631. Presumably the children of the previous generation did not marry until aged about 25 after 1631 so not found in available extractions yet. Some entries found on IGI for 1633-1644 would support this. Huyton by Roby extractions appear to fill in some gaps in these families.

 

There is a gap in the records from 1645-1665 many churches did not maintain their records during the commonwealth.
