Introduction

Welcome to the Canadian Prangley family page of my family history website.  This page covers the family of Alexander Donald Sharpe's maternal grandmother, Mary Jane Prangley and many of her distant cousins.  Our Prangley family were pioneer settlers in Kent County, and Lambton County, Ontario from the early 1800s. However this page has now been expanded to try to cover all Canadians with the surname Prangley.  Their ancestors came from Corsley, Wiltshire, England.

Please Note: This page is intended only as a narrative historical overview of this family.  There is additional detailed information available for almost ever person presented on this page.  To avoid the unnecessary work of double-entering some data, the additional information can be found in the accompanying GEDCOM database.  Please make sure you click on the INDEX button at the bottom of the page so you don't miss out on potentially valuable additional information.

The Origin Of The Surname Prangley

The origin of the surname of Prangley is presented on the Prangleys of Corlsey page.

The Ontario Prangleys

Note: In the following entries you may find some confusion regarding the place names of Euphemia Township, Bothwell Township, Lambton County, Kent County and Bothwell County.  This confusion is caused by the fact that county names and boundaries have changed in the last 100 years.  Today Bothwell is a township located in Kent County on the border with Euphemia Township in Lambton County.  However in 1881 Bothwell was a county and Euphemia Township was part of Bothwell County.  Today, Bothwell County no longer exists.

The earliest Canadian Prangleys all descend from the family of Esau Prangley and Elizabeth Denmead of Corsley, Wiltshire, England, however other Prangleys continued to immigrate to Canada in later generations (see Québec Prangleys below).  The children of Esau and Elizabeth Prangley settled in Bothwell, Lambton, and Kent counties which are all located adjacent to each other in the extreme south-west of Ontario between the cities of London and Windsor.  Some descendants of this family remain in those three counties to this day, while others are scattered all across North America.

Esau Prangley of the Corsley family married Elizabeth Denmead of Corsley, Wiltshire on 1 NOV 1813. 

Married by John Griffith, Curate and witnesses James Fowles, Ann Hedges and Cornelius Prangley. [Corsley Bishop's Transcripts]

They had the following children:

  1. Has Children Charles PRANGLEY b: abt 14 APR 1815 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England was the first of this family to emigrate. 
  2. Has No Children Levi PRANGLEY b: 1816 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  It is believed that Levi MAY have immigrated to Michigan, and later to Iowa, USA.  A Levi Prangley matching his birth date can be found as a taxpayer in 1844 in Alaiedon, Michigan, USA.  In 1850, a Levi Prangley (believed to be the same Levi Prangley) aged 33 can be found in the 1850 census for Clinton County, Iowa.  No spouse or children are listed.  As we have no records of any Prangleys coming to North America earlier than this family it is strongly believed, though not proven, that Levi Prangley immigrated with his family to Kent County, Ontario, then later to Michigan, and finally following his brother, Esau, to Iowa.

    By 1860 Census, Albion, Jackson, Wisconsin. Age 40, a teamster from Pennsylvania.

    John Jennings adds: the listing of birth place as Pennsylvania in 1860 Census probably indicates this is not the same Levi.

  3. Has Children Nathaniel PRANGLEY b: abt 7 FEB 1819 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.
  4. Has Children Eliza PRANGLEY b: 27 AUG 1820 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.
  5. Has No Children Noah PRANGLEY b: abt 8 JUN 1823 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He died in 1830, which is the same year the family emigrated, so it is not known if he died in England or Canada.
  6. Has Children John PRANGLEY b: abt. 10 JUL 1825 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.
  7. Has No Children Emmanuel PRANGLEY b: abt 22 JUL 1827 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England of whom nothing more is known.
  8. Has Children George PRANGLEY b: abt 25 NOV 1830 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.
  9. Has Children Esau PRANGLEY b: 1833 in Euphemia Township, Lambton County, Ontario
  10. Has Children William PRANGLEY b: 14 JAN 1834 in Euphemia Township, Lambton County, Ontario
  11. Has Children Moses PRANGLEY b: 15 MAY 1835 in Euphemia Township, Lambton County, Ontario
  12. Has Children Sarah PRANGLEY b: 16 JAN 1840 in Euphemia Township, Lambton County, Ontario

These children are each discussed in more detail below.

Charles Prangley of Dawn Mills, Kent County

Dawn Mills, Camden Township, Kent County, ca. 1880

The property of Charles T. Prangley can be seen in the loop of the river immediately west of Dawn Mills.

The eldest son, Charles Prangley, was the first of this family to immigrate to Canada.  Charles was only 15 years old when he came to Canada in 1830.  He settle first in Euphemia Township, Lambton County, in what was then still the Upper Canada Colony of British North America.  It would be another 40 years before the area would become Ontario, Canada.  Charles was followed very shortly thereafter by his entire birth family. 

Charles was one of many men sent to Canada at the expense of the Corsley parish due the poverty that existed in the labouring communities at that time. He sailed from Newport South Wales in 1830 and arrived in Quebec some three months later.  Charles' parents, Esau and Elizabeth Prangley, together with their remaining children came to Canada later that same year.  They also settled in Euphemia Township where they had four more children.

Charles Prangley did not stay in Euphemia Township, but ended up just a few miles to the west in Kent County, where Charles married Alice Ann Taylor and went into business with Alice's father, Captain William Taylor of Dawn Mills. Charles Prangley ran his father-in-law's mill. Since William Taylor owned three mills, it is unclear which one (or more) of them Charles ran. When Capt. Taylor died, his son Thomas inherited his father's portion of the family businesses.

The story of Captain William Taylor and the Dawn Mills Settlement can be found on the Dawn Mills Families page.

Thomas Taylor sold his share of one of the mills to Charles Prangley who then became the sole owner and proprietor. As a local history recounts the name of the mill as the "Prangley Mill", not the "Taylor Mill", it is believed that Charles Prangley must have had a substantial impact on the Dawn Mills community. The Taylor descendants left Dawn Mills for Chatham, which ultimately led to the economic demise of Dawn Mills, while on the other hand, Charles Prangley remained in Dawn Mills.  This could explain the village's affection for him.

The Prangley Mill


Prangley Road, Dawn, Mills, Kent County, Ontario

Even though William Taylor built the mills of Dawn Mills, it is his son-in-law Charles Prangley whose name is preserved in the local geography. The Prangley Mill no longer exists.  All that remains are the ruins of its foundation. The overgrown ruins can still be seen just west of the Dawn Mills bridge and just east of the road which bears the family name, the Prangley Road.

Charles Prangley was born 14 APR 1815 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England, and married on 30 MAR 1843 in Dawn Mills, Kent County, Ontario to Alice Ann Taylor.  Alice was born 16 FEB 1819 in New York, New York, USA as the daughter of Captain William Taylor and Sarah Chew.  Charles Prangley became a partner in Taylor's mills in Dawn Mills. When Captain Taylor died, his son Thomas Taylor sold the remaining share of one of those mills to Charles Prangley whose family kept the mill active in Dawn Mills for at least another generation.

Charles Prangley and Alice Taylor had seven children:

  13. Has No Children Amelia PRANGLEY b: 4 OCT 1874 in Euphemia Township, Middlesex County, Ontario.  1881/1901 census records give conflicting birth dates for Amelia. 1871 census lists her as 4 years old, making 1874 birth date impossible.  There is probably some confusion with her sister Alice Catherine Amelia Prangley above.  By 1901 she was unmarried.

NOTE - must resolve date conflicts above.

George Prangley was born ABT 25 NOV 1830 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England, and died 1890 in Middlesex County, Ontario.  George was a hotel owner in Strathroy.  He married firstly to Elizabeth, whose surname is not known.  It is presumed that Elizabeth died in childbirth as George was remarried the next year.  They had the following daughter.

  1. Elizabeth PRANGLEY, born 1855 in Strathroy, Middlesex County, Ontario.  She married in on 9 Feb 1876 in Strathroy, Middlesex County, Ontario, to Samuel DeGraw also of Strathroy, born 1853 as son of Benjamin and Alice DeGraw.  this family has not as yet been identified in the 1901 census.

Samuel: 1871 Census of Canada.

John shows no first marriage and shows Elizabeth as the first daughter of George Prangley and Catherine Jones.

George married secondly to CATHERINE JONES.  She was born 1833, and died 1886 in Middlesex County, Ontario. 

John shows differently: Catherine Jones b. 1833 in Ontario CANADA, d. 23 Jan 1901 in Middlesex Co. Ontario CANADA,

Some descendants from this branch moved to the United States.

Children of GEORGE PRANGLEY and CATHERINE JONES are:

Previously it was reported here that the correct reading may have been "Esau" after his grandfather.  It is believed that "Enan" is in fact "Eman", an abbreviation for "Emanuel."  Emanuel moved to Chicago.  He is found in the 1900 census in Chicago working as a saloon keeper, having taken after his father, George, who was a hotel keeper in Strathroy. Emanuel Prangley in Chicago married ANNIE b: 1868 in Illinois, USA.  They had the following children:

The Québec Prangleys

Canadian WWI recruiting documents suggest that the various branches of this family remained in contact with each other and/or continued to leave England for Canada as late as 1915-16.  These documents reveal a Frank Prangley of Montreal, Québec, born 31July 1884 in Wiltshire, England brother of Steven Pringley (residing in Berry-?empton, Québec) who registered for service in the Royal Canadian Forces in 1916. Sgt. Sidney Prangley was married and living in Bury, Québec in 1916 when he was recruited to serve.  He was born 10 Dec 1889 in Wiltshire, England.  He was a brother to Frank and Steven listed above.

These brothers were all from the following family.  As with all the Prangleys on this page they were descended from the Prangleys of Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  More information on their ancestors can be found on the Corsley Prangley Page.

Has Children Elisha PRANGLEY b: ABT 16 SEP 1849 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He married ABT SEP 1876 in Wellsbourne, Warwickshire, England to Eliza PERKS b: ABT 1852 in Warminster Wellsbourne, Warwickshire, England (daughter of William PERKS and Elizabeth HITCHMANd. 12 Oct 1931 in Stanstead Quebec CANADA, buried 14 Oct 1931 in St Paul's Cemetery Bury Quebec CANADA, occupation 1901 Charwoman. 1881 Census, Dartford, Corsley, Wiltshire, England. 1891 Census, Lower Whitbourne, Corsley, Wiltshire. Eliza: 1901 Census, 10 Emwell St., Warminster, Wiltshire. In 1902 she remarried George Arnold

Many of the descendants of this family immigrated to Québec, Canada.  It is not known of the entire family emigrated or just those noted below.  Elisha and Eliza had the following children:

  1. Has Children Adelaide Sarah PRANGLEY b: 25 DEC 1876 in Wellsbourne, Warwickshire, England.  Adelaide came with her youngest brother, Albert Elisha, who was an infant, we believe, to be with relatives already in Quebec (probably her uncle Frank Prangley, shown below) after the death of her father as her mother was remarrying and the children were "not part of the new arrangement". Adelaide raised Albert while working as a servant with relatives.  She married on 19 APR 1906 in Toronto, York, Ontario to Edward James BROWNING. They lived in Cobalt during the silver/gold boom and worked on the local paper, The Silver Nugget, with Harry Strand Browning (Edward's brother). After the fire destroyed Cobalt they returned to Toronto where Edward worked on a Catholic paper as a linotype operator. 

    The Great Fire of 1922, often referred to as "The Haileybury Fire," has been over the years, the most widely written account of any single event occurring in the Temiskaming area of Ontario. Many authors have previously narrated the story of the catastrophic fire, which on October 4, ravaged eighteen townships and obliterated 90 percent of the Town of Haileybury. The Great Fire covered 648 square miles reached into 18 townships, and affected the lives of 1,744 families. Six million dollars of property were lost in the fifteen-hour blaze. Haileybury residents alone incurred over half the total loss. Every public building in Haileybury burned except the high school. Miraculously only 43 people died in all the confusion, terror, and severity of the fire.

    They had the following children.  This branch is being researched by Nancy Dixon.

    1. Has No Children Dorothy Margaret BROWNING b: 21 JAN 1913.  She married and had children.
    2. Has Children Albert Lloyd BROWNING b: 16 APR 1917.  He married Ruth Amelia Hungerford.  Their children are not published for privacy reasons.

Elisha Prangley had two brothers who also came to Canada and settled in Québec:

He was shipped to Canada in 1871.  He moved to Bury, Compton, Québec, Canada sometime between 1871-1881.  He married sometime before 1881 to Emma M. b: 1853 in England.  They had the following child.
    1. Has No Children Stephen PRANGLEY b: 11 SEP 1883 in Bury, Compton, Quebec, Canada.  It is possible that this Stephen Prangley has been confused with the Stephen Prangley above, son of Elisha Prangley.
  2. Has No Children Stephen PRANGLEY b: ABT 20 NOV 1862 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Stephen immigrated to Quebec in 1925. He may have been married.

Sarah Prangley and George Crouch of Kent County, Ontario

Sarah PRANGLEY was born 10 MAY 1804 and baptized 3 NOV 1805 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  She was the daughter of Nathaniel Potter Prangley and Jane Prangley of Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Her birth family is presented on the Prangleys of Corsley Page.  She would have been a first cousin to Charles Prangley, the miller of Dawn Mills in the family above.  It is believed that she is the same Sarah Prangley who married on 5 MAY 1822 in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England to George CROUCH b: 6 MAY 1806 in Wiltshire, Wiltshire, England.  It is not confirmed that Sarah Prangley, daughter of Nathaniel and Jane Prangley is the same one who married George Crouch, however onomastics suggests she is a better candidate than the only other known Sarah Prangley.  George and Sarah immigrated in 1837 or 1842 to Bothwell County, Ontario, Canada, nearby to Esau Prangley, below.  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children Jane CROUCH b: 1823 in Somerset, England

  8. Has No Children Elijah CROUCH b: 1841 in Somerset, England.  He died as a child.
  9. Has Children George A. CROUCH b: JUN 1844 in Ontario, Canada.  He married Eliza Jane EASTLAKE b: 1846 in Lambton, Ontario.  They had several children in Camden Township, Kent County, Ontario.  Their descendants are listed on the accompanying Personal Data Pages (see INDEX at the bottom of this page). 

Stray Canadian Prangleys

Albert PRANGLEY - 1901 Census shows an Albert Prangley living in High River, Alberta and working as a domestic servant to the Riley family.  He was born 5 JUN 1876 in Ontario.  He could be a grandson of George Prangley of Strathroy, perhaps through an unknown child of his first marriage.  However, he is now believed to be the Albert Prangley, shipped as one of Dr. Bernardo's Children in 1889.  As a domestic servant, his employers, who likely gave the census data, likely didn't know where he was born and assumed Ontario, or, understandably, he may not have told them the truth.  He is believed to be Edward Albert Prangley, son of Frank Prangley and Maria Hill shown as born 1875 in Stourbridge, Worcester, England, and who later immigrated to New Zealand where he married and had descendants.
