  • Note:
    "Thomas Prence, senior, removed from Lechlade at an unknown date to All Saints, Barking, London,where he carried on the trade of carriage-maker, and where on July 31, 1630 he made his will, which was probated on August 14, following. It made bequests to daughter Katherine Crayford, daughter Rebecca Diple, and 'to son Thomas Prence now remayninge in new England in the pts beyond the seas one beere bole of silver and alsoe my seale Ringe of gold to be deld to him at his next return . . .' ".

    He was "Thomas Prince of All Hallows, Barking, London, carriage maker." He "had lived at Lechlade, Gloucestershire, before coming to London, but the parish records, such as survive in transcripts, do not indicate that this was the original home of the family. nterseting contemporary letters concerning the father and grandfather of Governor Prence are in the collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society. Thomas Prince, Senior, of All Hallows, in his will of 1630 mentions 'my son Thomas Prence now remayninge in New England in parts beyond seas' (P.C.C. 70, Scrope). As he bequeaths a 'seale Ringe of Gold' to his son, it may be presumed that the family was armigerous. The future Governor was brought up in the neighborhood whence came so many of the passengers of the first two ships, and the Mayflower must have taken her passengers in sight of his home, near the Tower.
    The proper spelling of this surname is Prince and it was so written by his immediate and collateral forebears, but he chose to write it as Prence. He lived in the hamlet of Ratcliffe, parish of Stepney, as a boy and probably remained there with his parents until his emigration."
