Can anyone solve the mystery of Ezekiel Prescott. We know he was in Liverpool Jail in 1841 and died in Jun 1851 but can find no census record for him in 1851. They are criminal records mentioned about him in 1841 and 1842 but I don't have access to them. Can anyone find a mention of him. He was a boatman on the Liverpool Leeds canal and was born in 1812 in Kirkby Liverpool. I don't know how long he was imprisoned for or what his crime was but judging by some other Prescotts it was probably assault of some kind while drunk. Can anyone find any details about him?
