Descendants of Grace Louisa Savell

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  GRACE LOUISA SAVELL, daughter of JOHN SAVELL and JANE HASTINGS  was born 14 Feb 1858 in Chippendale, NSW, Australia, and died 31 Dec 1907 in Burwood, NSW, Australia.  She married ROWLAND PRENTICE 1884 in Canterbury, NSW, Australia.  He was born 1858 in Sydney, Australia, and died 29 Jun 1938 in Burwood, NSW, Australia.

 

Notes for ROWLAND PRENTICE:

William Prentice was b. c. 1771, perhaps in the vicinity of Black Notley or Halstead. An extract from "The Second Fleet. Britain’s Grim Armada", by Michael Flynn, relates that:

 

"William Prentice, a butcher aged 17, was sentenced to death at the March 1788 Chelmsford (Essex) Assizes for sheep stealing. He had been accused of several thefts of sheep in the north Essex parishes of Halsted and Black Notley; one involved obtaining sheep by false pretences. After a month under a suspended death sentence he was reprieved to transportation for 14 years and sent to the Portsmouth hulk, "Lion", whence he was embarked on the Scarborough transport on 29 Nov 1789.

 

"Prentice lived quietly in the colony. In 1801 he was employed at Sydney by the butcher Richard Cheers (or Chear, q.v.). Some time after her arrival on the Experiment in 1804 he began living with Elizabeth Wicker (or Vickers b. c1772, tried Essex). In 1806 he was recorded as a self employed butcher living with Wicker and one child, John (born 1804, fathered by John Halliday, a seaman on the Experiment). Her children by Prentice were: Sarah 1807, Elizabeth 1809, Mary 1812, William Henry 1815, Rosetta 1818 and Charlotte 1821. The couple do not appear to have married and it may have been to ensure her inheritance that William transferred the title of their home at 57 Cumberland Street, Sydney, to Elizabeth in 1813. They were still there in 1820, owning the house in which they lived.

 

William Prentice died on 2 April 1822, and was buried in the Elizabeth Street Burial Ground (on the site of modern Central Station) where a headstone once stood on which his name was spelt PRENTES. Elizabeth married another butcher, James Cross, in 1828 and lived with him in Cumberland Street. James Cross was buried, aged 60, at St. Phillip's Church Sydney on 29 Jan 1838.

 

John [son of John Halliday] used the surname Prentice (cf. 1822 muster); Elizabeth Wicker was possibly dead by 1837 when two of her daughters married as minors without the consent of a parent; some details contributed by C. Hope."

 

William Prentice's common law wife, Elizabeth Wicker, was convicted at Halstead for stealing 30 yards of linen and 3 pairs of black stockings. Elizabeth was sentenced in April, 1803 to 7 years transportation. She was the daughter of Richard Wicker and Sarah Raynor of Halstead, Essex. Sometimes the WICKER was written as VICKER but her certificate of freedon shows Wicker

 

Elizabeth gained her freedom in 1811, at the same time as Mary Cable who was convicted with Elizabeth.

 

William Prentice died 4 Apr 1822 and was buried at St. Phillips Church of England in Sydney. No trace of Elizabeth's death has yet been found, and she might have returned to England with her lawful husband, James Cross after he had served his time. However, Barbara Morrison expresses a doubt about Elizabeth returning to England leaving all her family in Australia. After so long away there would have been nothing for her there. No record of her death as Elizabeth Wicker or Cross has yet been found in NSW, but an Ann Cross died aged 56 in 1836. William gave Elizabeth the house and shop. Their children are:

 

John Prentice born 14 Dec 1804, son of Elizabeth Wicker; his father was a seaman. John probably d. 1859. Along with his sister Rosetta, he was a witness at the wedding of his other sister Charlotte in 1837.

Sarah Prentice, b. 1807, Sydney. She married Charles Crane in 1823. Died 1830.

Elizabeth Prentice, b. 14 Sep 1809, Sydney

William Henry Prentice, b. 1815, Sydney

Rosetta Prentice, b. 1818,Sydney. In 1837 she m. Alexander John Lees. Died 1905. She is the ancestor of both Glenda Mason and Barbara Morrison.

Charlotte Prentice, b. 1821, Sydney. She m. James Norton in 1837. Died 1875

 

William Henry Prentice, b. 1815, Sydney and d. 1882. He m. Rachel Ikin in 1837.  Both are buried in St Thomas Church graveyard at Enfield.  Roland Prentice is the son of William and Rachel Prentice.
