    • James took such umbrage at his fathers third marriage ,he stormed out of the church immediately after the ceremony, and quit his home forever.He was then lost to his family.He emigrated to England, with little money and survived using his native talent and good character.After several years ,he married Ann Hoar of Romney,and they left England and settled on the Isle of Wight,-They are the ancestors of The Isle of Wight branch.

      Family members were to become bankers and prominent members of the local Congregational Chapel. Estates were held at various times at Fairlee, St. Cross and Mount Pleasant in the parishes of Carisbrooke and Whippingham and also in the Undercliff at Niton, centred on Windcliffe. There were smaller landholdings elsewhere. By the early 20th century the landholdings at Mount Pleasant ,once the heart of the estate, were being divided up and sold for development, and the core of the landholdings passed to Niton. The heir to the estate was Reginald Prendergast in the 1920s, and the house remained in the hands of the family until c1960.
