Ok ,there is a Th0mas Prescott ,gun polisher in Aberdeen

Edinburgh, Scotland

Gun Polisher

Pop. of entire parish (1801) 9911, (1831) 25,107, (1861)


Etymology
The parish of Old Machar was originally a deanery called the Deanery of Saint Machar; and in Gaelic Machair means "a plain." The name appears singly in the counties of Inverness and Lanark, and as Machermore in Kirkcudebright. Machairmor and beag, which signifies "the larger and lesser plain," is found in Argyleshire; and the Auch-machars in this County, which signify "the plain fields," are to be found in the parish of Old Deer.

Thanks Ellie.

For some reason the 'Joseph Cunard' and 'William Prescott' don't appear in the NSW Archives index. I therefore don't know if there is a second shipping reel that would list his parents.

The middle name 'Wycherley' passed down should help.

No baptism found in Liverpool with father as Thomas or Alexander.

The only ones in Lancs.
