Benjamin Prichard was a son of Thomas and Barbara Prichard, born in about 1684 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, or perhaps in about 1680 in Wales. He was living in Philadelphia when the 1698 and 1699 wills of his parents were written, which both mention him among their six surviving children. On "23rd of 12th Month 1699", 5 Mar 1700 on the Gregorian Calendar, Matthew Prichard appeared at the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting, "... laying before this meeting that he intends to transport himself, his brother Benjamin & family into Carolina, and desiring a Certificate, ...". Minutes of the Pasquotank Monthly Meeting in North Carolina note that Matthew Prichard arrived with his family and brother Benjamin from Philadelphia on "1701-4-1", 12 Jun 1701 Gregorian. Numerous records from the Symons Creek Monthly Meeting of Pasquotank County show Benjamin's residence there through November 1738.

Benjamin married first Sarah Culpepper (1686-1724) in Pasquotank County, North Carolina, on "1704, 9, 2", 13 Nov 1704 Gregorian. Benjamin and Sarah had the following children:

Mary Prichard (1707–1791)
Elizabeth Prichard (1710–1791)
Martha Prichard (1713–1788)
Joseph Prichard (1715–1761)
Benjamin Prichard (1719–1752)
Sarah Prichard (1723–1794)

Sarah died on "10-25-1723", 5 Jan 1724 Gregorian, and Benjamin married second Isabel Newby (1698-1758), widow of John Henly (1690-1728), in Pasquotank County on "1729, 6, 7", 18 Aug 1729 Gregorian. Benjamin and Isabel had the following child: Matthew Prichard (1732-1778).

It is presumed that Benjamin was buried in the Friends Symons Creek Monthly Meeting House Burial Ground, as he was a member of the Symons Creek Monthly Meeting.
