I may have an ancestor named Howell Prickett who definitely had a son named John, who was born in Gloucestershire and lived just one year (1617-1618). Howell may also have had another son named John who lived to adulthood. There is definitely a John Prickett who definitely was the father of Josiah and Zachariah Prickett, born 1672 and 1674 resp in London, England, and who migrated to NJ in the 17th century.
I found the following entry in vol. 4 of ABSTRACTS OF Probate Acts in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, edited by JOHN MATTHEWS and GEORGE F MATTHEWS, B.A. Issued to Subscribers from 93 & 94, CHANCERY LANE, LONDON, W.C. 1906
"Anno 1647 . . . .
"Godly Davies of Monmouth, Widow.
"Admon w. Will [123 Fines] June 20 to John Prickett and his wife Catherine, daughter of deceased ; Thomas Howell having died."
I think you can see the original entry at
