John Anthony Prangley
1938-2006
We wish to remember Tony Prangley.  Tony died suddenly of a heart attack while attending a football game near his home in Wales in February 2006. He was 67. Tony was one of the founding Fellow Researchers of this site. He was a generous contributor and was one of the key individuals whose efforts helped us to sort out the 17th century Prangleys in Corsley. He was a kind man and his contributions to our group will be deeply missed.

Introduction

Welcome to the Prangley family page of my family history website.  This page covers the known descendants of the original Prangleys from Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  As the Prangley surname is one of those very few surnames that is believed to have a unique origin then it is believed that all Prangleys are related to each other.  In the course of researching my own family's Prangley ancestors I have run across several other researchers online.  We have all found our common Prangley roots in the parish of Corsley, Wiltshire, England, which is believed to be the place of origin for the Prangley surname.  I am attempting to catalogue the common origins of the Prangley families from all over the world.  So far we have found descendant branches in England, Canada, the United States, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

This website will not follow all the descendants of the Prangleys all over the world as that would become just too overwhelming.  However, I will attempt to follow the various descendant lines of the original Corsley Prangleys as far as the year 1900 (or so).  So far we have been able to account for nearly 90% of the Prangleys found in the Latter Day Saints' International Genealogical Index and 1881 Census Transcriptions.  If you wish to contribute your research please contact me.

The information on this website is not mine alone, but represents the combined research efforts of all the Fellow Researchers listed at the bottom of this page.

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.

If you are following the origins of the author's Canadian Prangleys, you may find their information located below under BRANCH #2.  As this is not only the author's family, but also the family of most of the Fellow Researchers, it is therefore the most thoroughly researched and verified.  All other branches are so far based solely on IGI data and represent research "in progress".

The Origin Of The Surname Prangley

A Variant of Prangnell

The surname Prangley appears to be of almost singular and unique origin from the late-17th century in the area of the parish of Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Almost all known Prangleys can trace their origins to the Corsley area.  Several attempts have been made to interpret the meaning of the surname based on its current form: Prang + ley.  However, until this project began, nobody had seriously considered the idea that Prangley may not be the original form of the name and that it may be a variant of another surname.  Evidence is mounting that Prangley is simply a dialectic variant of the surname Prangnell -- a very ancient surname in southern England.

Even in the parish of Corsley, Wiltshire, itself (the purported original location of the surname) the form Prangley does not come into existence until the mid-18th century, with only one exception.  We find the burial of Gorge Prangly in 1688.  Otherwise, 17th century parish records indicate the surname was spelled variously as: Pranglin, Pranglen, Prangling, and Pranglyn.  It should be noted that all of these earlier variants contain a final "n" sound (or "ng").  And even Gorge Prangly himself appears to have been the son of a Gorge Pranglin and father of a Gorge Pranglyn.

This would suggest that the "ley" ending is merely the phonetic rendering of a lazy dropping of the final "n" sound and that "ley" is not an original element of the surname.  We can show several cases below where a person was baptized with one of these final-n-variants and the same person appears in later records with the surname Prangley.  Thus we can observe that it is indeed a phonetic morphing of the same surname and not simply two different, but similar, surnames.

Furthermore, we find the record of a Robert Prangenel cited in "Abstracts of the Inquisitiones Post Mortem Relating to Wiltshire, Returned into the High Court of Chancery from the Reign of King Henry 3rd" (1216-1272), for Wiltshire, England.  Here is evidence of a phonetically consistent surname as far back as the 13th century.

The similarity between Prangenel and Prangnell cannot be dismissed.  When we look at the geographic distribution of these surnames in the 18th and 19th centuries we can observe that Prangley is found primarily in the area of Corsley and Frome, Wiltshire, whereas the surname Prangnell is common in a near perfect ring around Corsley and Frome, but almost entirely absent in the Corsley and Frome area.  There are a few exceptions, of course, where we find Prangleys residing outside of the Corsley/Frome area, but most of those families can be traced back to Corsley or Frome in earlier generations.

It seems hard to argue that the surname Prangley evolved as a unique surname, independent of the surname Prangnell in an isolated geographic area while completely surrounded by families of the name Prangnell, and while Prangnell families utterly avoided settling in the Corlsey/Frome area.  It seems far more plausible that Prangley is merely a local dialect variant of Prangnell where the final "l" and "n" sounds have reversed.

We can now cite circumstantial evidence that appears to show the use of the form Prangley and Prangnell in the same family.  Joseph Prangley (shown below) had a son Henry Prangley who is shown in 1841 as Henry Prangenle residing with an elder Moses Prangenle b ca 1805 (believed to be his uncle).  Henry is found in 1851 as Henry Prangley while Moses is found in 1851 as Moses Prangnell.  While not proven, this would appear to show the two surnames common within the same extended family.

Modern scholars give the origin of the surname Prangnell as "of ancient origins now lost to us, likely a geographic surname evolving from an extinct village."

It had previously been suggested that the Prangleys originated from an eponymous Germanic immigrant to the Corlsey area, likely sometime in the16th century.  However such a suggestion now seems unrealistic.  If Prangley is an evolved form of Pranglin (and variants) which is itself just an evolved form of Prangnell, a surname which can be found in southern England nearly as far back as William the Conqueror then it would appear that the authentic Prangley roots are thoroughly English and perhaps even Anglo-Saxon, and any etymologies that attempt to interpret the surname using the final "ley" element would appear to be mistaken.

As a variant of Prangnell, Prangley is probably also kindred with Pringle and Pringley.

Other Proposed Etymologies

Other suggestions for the origin of the surname include:

  1. Prangley may come from the Anglo-Saxon "pronged ley/leigh".  Leigh means "field".  John Prangley of England wrote me with the following: "When I was at university in Bristol in 1956, Dr. Basil Cottle, the author of The Penguin Book of English Surnames taught me. In a class of 40 he was able to tell the origin of every name but mine!  He hazarded: 'a family that lived in a prong-shaped field'.  Adding that he wasn’t sure that the surname had British origins, [and] the name doesn’t appear in Dr. Cottle's book."  However, if "ley" is not an authentic final element of the surname then this etymology must be rejected.  And, according to this account, Dr. Cottle himself acknowledges that he was merely guessing.

  2. Roger Prangley of Germany sent along the following suggestion: "Prangley was earlier probably a German "double-barreled" name. Prang is a name which stems from North Germany. The meaning of it comes from the lower German (dialect) word and means 'aggressor' or 'fighter'. The name of Prang is widely distributed throughout German-speaking Europe. The 2nd name, Ley, stems possibly from Leyen which means "slate" in Rheinish dialect and meant therefore "Slater" or it could possibly be from Eley which in turn comes from the name Eligius and translated meant "the chosen one". The surname Ley is also broadly distributed here. The combination of the two names would also explain the uniqueness, possibly only an immediate family at the time (our ancestors)."  Again, this etymology attempts to interpret the final "ley" element as original, whereas it has been shown above, that "ley" is an 18th century variant.

  3. Prangley may come from the word Perang, a woodcutting instrument. (Suggested by Mr. Percy Prangley 1974).  However, this would appear to be just one person's guess.

Andrews and Durys Map 1773


Corsley, 1783


Andrews and Durys Map 1810

Corsley is a small town in the county of Wiltshire in England.  Wiltshire is home to the infamous Stonehenge.  Corsley is located near the centre of the ancient kingdom of Wessex, in western Wiltshire only one mile from the border of Somersetshire, halfway between Frome, Somerset and Warminster, Wiltshire. 

The population of Corsley in 1801 was 1400.  It reached its highest in 1831 at 1729 and lowest in 1971 at only 650.

"At the making of Domesday Book most of Corsley was included within the great royal manor of Warminster, and even after it had been granted away by Henry II the church of Corsley was parochially dependent on Warminster until the 15th century. (Footnote 1) The common fields of Cley and Chedlanger were shared by the tenants of Corsley and Warminster until their inclosure in 1783.

"Corsley lay within the bounds of Selwood Forest in the Middle Ages, and much of the parish must have consisted of woodland which was only gradually cleared. This has left its mark on the pattern of settlement. Apart from the village of Chapmanslade, the parish contains only small hamlets and isolated farms. Some of the hamlets, such as Huntenhull, Corsley, and the three Whitbournes, are of early origin, while Longhedge, Corsley Heath and Lane End are all groups of cottages built on former common land, probably from the 16th century onwards.  In spite of this Corsley was clearly well populated in the 14th century.   In 1377 there were 128 poll-tax payers in Corsley, the third largest number in the hundred, and 49 at Whitbourne.  In the 16th century the parish was apparently well-populated and prosperous.  The population of 1,412 in 1801 increased to 1,729 by 1831, in spite of the emigration of 200 people to America since 1821. After that it declined steadily, owing to the decay of the cloth industry and to the increasing preponderance of dairy-farming, to 729 in 1931. In 1934 194 people lived in the part of Corsley transferred to the new parish of Chapmanslade, while only 49 lived in the area gained from Warminster. In spite of that the population had risen to 745 by 1951.

"Corsley has always looked to both Frome and Warminster as market towns. Much of its soil is suitable for either arable or pastoral farming, and the amount given to each has varied considerably. (Footnote 24) The cloth trade flourished chiefly in the 18th century but survived until the 1840's." (ref)

The Prangleys of Corsley, Wiltshire, England

The surname Prangley appears for the first time in any known records initially in the parish of Corsley, Wiltshire, England in mid-1600s.  The burial of Gorge Prangly in 1688 indicates that his father was in the wool trade.  However, this interpretation has recently been challenged.  The original record simply says he was buried "in wool."  We have interpreted this reference to be to his trade, however it has recently been suggested that it may refer instead to his means of burial -- literally "wrapped in wool."  These interpretations remain a matter of ongoing discussion.

Before 1669 there are no recorded burials of any Prangley (or variant) in the Corsley records. Between 1608 –1669 there are no recorded marriages of any Prangley (or variant) in the Corsley records. The earliest recorded birth of a Prangley in Wiltshire is Robert Prangling, son of George, 24 AUG 1672 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  This would seem to indicate that the name Prangley arrived in Corsley sometime before 1669, probably in the period 1640-1669. The question is from where did these Prangleys come?

It had previously been suggested that an eponymous Germanic immigrant named Prangley had come from Europe and settled in Corsley, sometime in the late-16th or early 17th century, perhaps connected with the wool trade.  However, (as discussed above) it now seems more likely that the theoretical family of origin below were merely a branch of one of the nearby Prangnell families who are found throughout the surrounding area.

So far as we have been able to determine, it appears that the earliest generations of Prangleys are as shown below.  Where the phrase "is believed to be" is used then the reader should understand that these early relationships are not proven but represent the combined opinions of the researchers listed below as we jointly try to reconcile the scraps of known data.

In the 1766 Land Tax records for Frome, Somerset, England there is a residence recorded as "Prangley House", but not occupied by anyone of the surname Prangley.  Presumably the residence was named after an earlier occupant or the owner.  This would seem to indicate that at least one branch of Prangleys was in Frome prior to 1766.

The Theoretical Family of Origin

The Descendants of Gorge Pranglin, ca. 1600 in Corsley

Gorge PRANGLIN was born about 1600.  He is of uncertain origin.  His wife is unknown.  It is believed that he was the father of:

  1. Has No Children William PRANGLIN b: ABT 1620 in England who is believed to have married a woman named Elce.  We know of no children from this marriage.
  2. Has Children Gorge PRANGLY b: ABT 1630 in England who married an unknown woman.  He is believed to have worked in the wool industry and died on 20 JUN 1688.  He is believed to have been the father of:
    1. Has Children George PRANGLYN b: ABT 1668 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  His wife is unknown.  He is believed to be the father of:
      1. Has No Children Hannah PRANGLIN b: ABT 16 JUN 1690 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
      2. Has Children George PRANGLIN b: ABT 13 APR 1693 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England who married on 19 JAN 1713/14 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Joan SINGER (of unknown origin).  Their suggested descendants are shown below as BRANCH #1 (below).
      3. Has Children John PRANGLIN b: ABT 1696 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England who is believed to have married on 23 DEC 1722 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Anna GRATWOOD (of unknown origin).  It is believed they were the parents of the following children.  However as these children are only shown as "of John Pranglin" it is also possible that they could be children of John, son of Robert (#3 below).
        1. Has No Children Elizabeth PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: 15 SEP 1723 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
        2. Has Children George PRANGLEY b: ABT 20 MAR 1724/25 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  George is recorded in the Corsley records as "George, son of John Prangley". It is not certain that he is the son of THIS John Prangley, however this seems to be the most likely place for him. The other possibility is that he is the son of John Pranglin, b: 1702, son of Robert Prangling, b: 1672 (below). But the name "George" seems to favour the present branch. George married on 13 OCT 1744 in St. Margaret's Church, Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Sarah STREATTON of unknown origin.  It is believed they were the parents of:
          1. Has No Children Elizabeth PRANGLEY b: 1745 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England, of whom nothing is known.  She may be the Elizabeth Prangley who was sentenced to the prison colony in New South Wales, Australia in 1791.
        3. Has No Children William PRANGLEY b: ABT 30 AUG 1730 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
        4. Has No Children Hannah PRANGLEY b: ABT 28 DEC 1732 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Married 16 Nov 1755 in St Margaret's Church Corsley Wiltshire ENG, Humphry MOOREHumphry: Name recorded as Umphrey Moor in Parish marriage records.  There is a Humphry Moore bapt. 16 Oct 1721, mother Mary Moore, Corsley, Wiltshire.
    2. Has Children Thomas PRANGLEY/PRANGLEN b: ABT 1670 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  His wife is unknown.  He is believed to have been the father of:
      1. Has No Children Thomas PRANGLEY b: 7 JAN 1693/94 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He is believed to be the patriarch of BRANCH #3  (below)This is suggested based on onomastics and the fact that no other likely Thomas Prangley has been identified.  It is possible that the Thomas Prangley of Branch #4 could be from a different family with no birth record.
      2. Has No Children Jerimiah PRANGLEY b: 1698 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
      3. Has No Children Hannah PRANGLEY/PRANGLYN b: APR 1701 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
      4. Has No Children Mary PRANGLEY/PRANGLEN b: ABT 12 NOV 1705 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  She is believed to be the Mary Prangley who married on 19 DEC 1725 to John TAYLOR b: ABT 1700 in Berkley, Somerset, England
      5. Has No Children Luce PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: JUL 1707 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
      6. Has Children William PRANGLEY/PRANGLING b: 1709 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  It is not certain that the William Prangley (a.k.a. Prangling) born in 1709 is the father of the children shown here, however no other William Prangley (or derivative) has otherwise been identified. In the absence of any other contender, it is suggested that William Prangling, born 1709 in Corsley is the father of the children shown here, however this is not verified.  He is believed to be the father of:
        1. Has No Children Robert PRANGLEY b: ABT 6 JUN 1731 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
        2. Has No Children Elizabeth PRANGLEY b: ABT 9 DEC 1732 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England

        6. Has Children Jonah PRANGLEY b: ABT 11 JAN 1746/47 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  See BELOW under Stray branches for the descendants of this Jonah Prangley.
        7. Has No Children Mary PRANGLEY b: ABT 28 APR 1750 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England, who presumably died at birth.

    1. Has No Children Jeremiah YOUNG b: 22 NOV 1744 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He married on 20 JUN 1773 in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England to Mary COOMBS b: ABT 1740 in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England.

The Descendants of Joseph and Mary Prangley/Pranglin of Corsley, Wiltshire.

Has Children Joseph PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 3 JUL 1715 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  It is believed that this is the Joseph who married Mary PRANGLEY b: ABT 1723 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England and had the following children.  It is not known if Mary's birth name was also Prangley, or just her married name.  These children are shown to be the children of "Joseph and Mary Prangley".  It is not certain that the Joseph born in 1715 is the father of the children shown here, however no other Joseph Prangley (or derivative) has otherwise been identified.  Thus, in the absence of any other contender, it is suggested that he is the father of the children shown here, however these relationships are not verified. 

  1. Has Children Job PRANGLEY b: ABT 31 JAN 1740/41 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Job married firstly on 24 SEP 1771 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Betty UDELL b: ABT 1740 in England.  Betty Udell (nee West) was formerly the wife of David Udell (Bap 3/6/1739, Corsley). They married in Corsley on 24 April 1763. David died 8 Aug 1770 (aged about 31) leaving Betty his widow. They had only one recorded child Sarah Udell (Bap 15/12/1765).  d. 1787 in Corsley Wiltshire ENG, buried 1787 in Corsley Wiltshire ENG. Died a pauper. Married 24 Sep 1771 in St Margaret's Church Corsley Wiltshire ENG, Betty WOOD, b. in Wiltshire ENG. Betty: Married by banns as a widow under the name of Betty Udell.

  3. Has Children Jonah PRANGLEY b: ABT 22 JAN 1746/47 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  See BELOW under Stray Branches for the descendants of this Jonah Prangley.  John Jennings' transcription shows this Jonah as the one baptized on 11 Jan 1747 and does not show Jonah, son of William, at all. Could the IGI be wrong?
  4. Has Children Paul PRANGLEY b: ABT 16 APR 1749 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Paul married firstly on 3 AUG 1772 in St. Margaret's Church, Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Betty UDELL b: ABT 30 OCT 1743 in Corsley Parish Church, Wiltshire, England, daughter of Andrew Udell.  They had the following children:

      3. Has Children Hannah PRANGLEY b: ABT 27 JUL 1806 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  It is strongly believed that this is the Hannah Prangley who married on 24 APR 1825 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Benjamin HYATT b: 1808 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  They lived in Leigh's Green, Corsley next door to Benjamin and Hannah Prangley.  The 1861 census shows her living next to James and Amelia Prangley, who are residing at Corsley Wood.  Hannah and Benjamin had the following children:

Has No Children Martha PRANGLEY b: ABT 10 SEP 1809 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  The IGI shows the following child born to Benjamin and Martha Prangley.  As no other contemporary Benjamin Prangley is known it is presumed to be the same Benjamin.  However the daughter couldn't be from another marriage as it is known that Benjamin's first wife Hannah Prangley was still alive in 1809.  Thus it is presumed that the mother shown as "Martha" could be a scribal error substituting the daughter's name, or Martha could be a mistress and the following child illegitimate.  Or it could be a different Benjamin altogether, but no such person is known.  I presently prefer the first theory.

      Benjamin married secondly to a woman named Mary, with whom Benjamin is residing in the 1841 census.  They are both shown as paupers.

    2. Has No Children James PRANGLEY b: ABT 6 AUG 1775 in Corlsey, Wiltshire, England.  He died as a child.

BRANCH #2 - The Descendants of John Prangley, born 1755 in Corsley

John Prangley was born in 1755 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  As the parish records are missing for the year of his birth there is no surviving record of his birth.  He is believed to be the son of Joseph and Mary Prangley/Pranglin of BRANCH #1 above.  John was a butcher in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  John Prangley is listed in the papers relating to leases of land from Lord Weymouth, 2nd Viscount -- "John PRANGLEY (at Leigh's Green) for a cottage and garden (10 luggs) 1s (leased to John PRANGLEY the 21 July 1783)." 

Records for birth and baptism of John Prangley are not to be found in the Corsley Parish Records as the pages are missing for the period 1753-1755. [It should be noted that, in any case, the Parish Records do not record all births, deaths and marriages.] Possible father of John PRANGLEY, all of whom fathered children at about this time, are:

George Prangley & Sarah Streatton m. 18 Oct 1744 - daughter, Elizabeth bapt. 18 Aug 1745 [There are no more children recorded after 1745 - so I have discounted him as the father of John].

William Prangley - children Betty bapt. 9 Dec 1732, William bapt. 23 Jan 1736, Ann bapt. 4 May 1739, James bapt. 4 Dec 1743, Jonah bapt. 11 Jan 1747, Mary bapt. 28 Apr 1750 [There are no more children recorded after 1750 - so I have discounted him as father].

Joseph Prangley & Mary ? - children Job bapt. 31 Jan 1742, James bapt. 20 May 1744, Paul bapt. 16 Apr 1749, Mary bapt. 5 Jul 1752, Solomon bapt. 19 Oct 1756, Martha b. 1761 [Joseph has children either side of the missing years, so Joseph is a likely father of John].

Lazarus Prangley & Hannah Chapman m. 14 Apr 1750 - children Mary bapt. 15 Mar 1751, Abigail bur. 14 Oct 1765, Charles bapt. 29 Jun 1766, Abigail bapt. 27 Oct 1769, Hannah bapt. 31 Jan 1773 [There is a big gap between 1751 and 1765, so there were probably two Lazaruses. The second Lazarus would be too young to be the father of John.]. The most likely candidates for the parents of John are therefore Joseph PRANGLEY and Mary ?

Papers relating to leases of land from Lord Weymouth after the enclosures of Corsley 1783. Agreement by Corsley cottage holders acknowledging that the several cottages and gardens in their possession are the sole right and property of the 2nd Viscount as lord of the manor of Corsley and are part of his lordship's waste and agree to pay an acknowledgement for holding the cottages and gardens. The agreement lists the cottagers with a description of the premises they hold ....... (at Temple) George PRANGLEY for a cottage and garden (20 luggs) 2s (leased to George PRANGLEY 25 March 1757) ...... and ...... (at Leigh's Green) John PRANGLEY for a cottage and garden (10 luggs) 1s (leased to John PRANGLEY 21 July 1783). The lease for 99 years was determinable with the lives of the said John Prangley, Nathan Prangley his son and Sarah Steeds the daughter of Edward Steeds butcher of Downhead. [Note: A lug or lugg is an old unit of measure also called a pole or perch, usually 16.5 feet.].

The Corsely Parish Records indicate John PRANGLEY died aged 55 y.

John Prangley married firstly on 18 MAY 1777 in St. Margaret's Church, Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Sarah GEORGE, and secondly on 26 DEC 1783 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Sarah STEEDS.  Sarah George is believed to have died during the birth of their third child, Jane Prangley.  Sarah Steeds was born ABT 12 JUL 1761 in All Saints Church, Downhead, Somerset, England as the daughter of Edward STEEDS and Mary Ann PARFITT.  Edward Steeds was a butcher from Downhead.  Sarah Steeds d. 1811 in Corsley Wiltshire ENG, buried 11 Dec 1811 in Corsley Wiltshire ENG.

John and Sarah Steeds may have moved to Frome, Somerset, England just prior to the birth of their last son, Moses.  John Prangley had the following descendants:

    Tabitha married ABT 1816 in England to Benjamin WICKHAM b: 11 NOV 1792 in Wells, Somerset, England.  They had a family in England and then immigrated to Australia between 1830-1837.  Tabitha was the first nurse in South Australia. Early in 1837, an infirmary was set up on North Terrace near Morphett St. Tabitha undertook to care for the inmates, and to cook, for ten shillings a week plus rations. 

    d. 2 Aug 1845 in Gouger Street Adelaide SA, buried 6 Aug 1845 in West Terrace Cemetery SA, occupation 1837 Nurse, religion Methodist. The records for the "Africaine" list Benjamin & Tabitha WICKHAM and their children, Eliza, Daniel & Lucy. [http://www.slsa.sa.gov.au/fh/passengerlists/1836Africaine.htm] Neither Sarah Clifford (married William Joseph SAYERS in Tasmania in 1836) or Maria are mentioned. As well, Tabitha's illegitimate daughter Mary BAILEY (nee PRANGLEY) was apparently already in Tasmania (1833-1838) and two of her children were born there before she came to South Australia.

    The first Wesleyan Methodist service on the mainland of South Australia was held in a tent near the Old Gum Tree at Glenelg South Australia on 22 Jan 1837. It was conducted by John C. White. On 11 May 1837, fifteen people met at the home of Edward Stephens near the site of the present Festival Theatre in Adelaide and decided to establish a Wesleyan Methodist Society. Tabitha Wickham was one of those present.

    Tabitha was also the first nurse in South Australia. Early in 1837, an infirmary was set up on North Terrace near Morphett St., Adelaide. Tabitha undertook to care for the inmates, and to cook, for ten shillings a week plus rations. Later she was the first nurse at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

    Buried West Terrace Cemetery, Adelaide. South of Morgue Rd, plan 1-2 with Mary and John Bailey WILLIAMS.

    (2) Married 27 Mar 1815 in St Margaret's Church Corsley Wiltshire ENG, Benjamin WICKHAM, b. 11 Nov 1792 in District of Wells Somerset ENG, (son of Benjamin WICKHAM and Sarah BOWN) d. 22 Dec 1875 in Wickham's Park SA, buried in Kangarilla Uniting Church Cemetery SA, military 1813 Pension, occupation 1816 Labourer, occupation 1818 Weaver, occupation 1820-30 Butcher, occupation AFT 1836 Soldier/farmer/gentleman, religion Methodist.

    Benjamin: Married by banns with consent of parents. Witnesses Charles Clifford and Joseph West. In the Peninsula Wars, Benjamin was with the 40th Foot Regiment (later known as 2nd Somersetshire Regiment and now known as the Queen's Lancashire Regiment) at the battles of Albuhera (16 May 1811), Ciudad Rodrigo (19 Jan 1812), Badajoz (7 March-6 April 1812), and Salamanca (22 Jul 1812). He was awarded the Military General Service Medal 1793-1814 with four clasps (one for each battle). Benjamin was pensioned (Chelsea Pensioner) in 5 Aug 1813. The medal was awarded in 1848, and apparently he went back to England to be awarded the medal in person. In 1848, Benjamin was in Warminster, England.

    At the Battle of Salamanca, the British, Portuguese and Spanish lost 5,000 killed and wounded. The French lost 7,000 killed and wounded and 7,000 were taken as prisoners. The French also lost 20 guns. "Meadows Heritage" - 1983 - indicates he was a British Army Captain at the Battle of Waterloo in the Napoleonic Wars. [This is unlikely!! In any case, Waterloo occurred 18 Jun 1815, after Benjamin was pensioned].

    The Somerset Electoral Register, Eastern Division for both 1832 and 1835 has Benjamin Wickham leasing houses and the Horse and Groom Inn at East Woodlands, Frome, Somerset. It seems highly likely that this is our Benjamin given his later activities in Adelaide in 1838/39 (see below).

    Benjamin, Tabitha and three of their children Eliza, Daniel R and Lucy sailed on the "Africaine" 30 Jun 1836 and arrived in South Australia 6 Nov 1836. Benjamin paid steerage fares. The "Africaine" was a 3-masted barque and arrived Nepean Bay (KI) 4 Nov 1836 and then sailed for Rapid Bay and became the first passenger ship to anchor in Holdfast Bay on 14 Nov 1836. It also carried the equipment for the first newspaper in the Colony.

    Benjamin was present at the 'Old Gum Tree' at Glenelg for the Proclamation of South Australia by Gov. Hindmarsh. The painting of the event by Thomas Gill was done some years after the first ceremony, and in this painting, Benjamin is shown with his medals which he got in 1848!

    On 31 Dec 1838, Benjamin was granted a licence to sell wine, beer and other malt liquors. He owned Wickham's Hotel South Tce (Town Acre 691) in 1838-1839. In 1839, the property was to be 'let or sold'. The Wickham family initially lived at Glenelg, then Adelaide. The family later went to live at Reedbeds and eventually to McLaren Vale region. Benjamin owned quite a lot of land at various times.

    Wickham Hill is named after Benjamin Wickham, who held the land in 1842.

    In 1837 he owned Town Acres 691 on South Terrace, 609 on Gilbert Street and 602 on Gilles Street. Allen's Almanack of 1849 has him owning 320 acres in Hd Kuitpo, 584 acres in Hd Willunga, and 84 acres in Hd Noarlunga. In Noarlunga, he owned Sections 725 and 726 on the Onkaparinga River. In Hundred of Kuitpo, Sections 3509 and 3510, known as Clear Hills. In Port Lincoln, half acre allotments 25, 131, 197, 237, 262, 389, 422, 474, 764, 929 and 941, and two 20 acre blocks 8 and 58. On Boston Island (near Port Lincoln), he owned half acre lots 66 and 115. In the Hundred of Willunga, he owned sections 568, 569, 572, 573, 574, and mentioned in his will, he also owned sections 530, 722, 723, 533, 724, 725 and 726. The Govt. Gazette of 6 Aug 1876 also shows sections 717, 719, 720 and 301 in the name of Mary Ann Wickham.

    There are several instances of Benjamin running foul of the law. 13/6/1850 No. 57: Poisoning a horse - victim: James WILSON at McLaren Vale - suspect: Benjamin Wickham arrested by Cpl. HowellL - Discharged.

    The Register of October 9, 1842:
    "TEN POUND REWARD"
    WHEREAS, on the night of Saturday the 17th September last, the hut of Mr B Wickham, near to Mr Grote‘s station, in the neighbourhood of Willunga, was broken into and the whole of the stores, consisting of flour, tea, sugar and meat, with sundry other articles, taken therefrom, and, on the night of Monday, October 3, the hut was set fire to, and totally destroyed, with goods to the value of one hundred pounds. There are strong reasons for believing that the same party or parties who committed the robbery were the perpetrators of the act of incendiarism. Whoever will give such information as shall bring the offender or offenders to justice shall receive the above reward.
    (Signed) B WICKHAM
    Adelaide, October 7, 1842

    Benjamin's age when he died is variously recorded; he was actually 83 when he died. A newspaper obituary at his death indicated he was 104 years old. His age was recorded as 90 years on his death certificate and on his headstone. The SA Biographical Index indicates born 1791, religion Methodist - this would put his age as c.84.

    On 28 February 2002, an application was made to the Development Assessment Commission by Alistair Gray for the restoration and addition to the 1870's Benjamin Wickham Cottage, 245 Elliot Road, McLaren Flat, Section 717 hundred of Willunga Certificate of title 5362 Folio 210. The cottage was recommended as a place of Local Heritage Value in the Willunga District Heritage Survey 1997 and was proposed to be listed in council's Heritage PAR. Wickham Park, had been established by Benjamin Wickham on the Kangarilla Road at McLaren Flat. Wickham, who had arrived in South Australia with his family on the Africane in 1836, established a farmhouse and a barn on the property on which he both grew crops and kept livestock. Wickham Park was purchased by George Sauerbier and in 1903 local builder Thomas Threadgold built a new large homestead for the Sauerbier family there, next to the existing farmhouse. In 1925 the homestead was guttered by fire, after which it was rebuilt. The property was passed from George Sauerbier to George Keith Sauerbier and then to his son and present owner George. Wickham Park remains as a prominent heritage property in the district and includes not only the stately homestead but other early farm buildings of significance. The Willunga District Heritage Survey of 1997 shows that Wickham Park fulfills the relevant criteria to be included on the Local Heritage List.

      He married ABT DEC 1848 in Frome, Somerset, England to Fanny WITHEY b: ABT 1828 in Frome, Somerset, England.  They had the following children:

      1. Has Children Frank PRANGLEY b: 28 SEP 1849 in Blunt Street, Frome, Somerset, England.  Frank Prangley is found in 1881 at 75 High Street in Bedwellty, Monmouth, Wales working as a shoemaker. He is shown as being born in Bristol County, England, which is adjacent to Somerset, however the 1891 census corrects this error and shows his birth place as Frome, Somerset. In 1891 they are living in Abergavenny, Monmouth, Wales. According to descendant, Vanessa Firmston (nee Prangley), "The info we have is that Frank was a bit of a B..... Edward was put into a workhouse at a young age, and took off overseas.... travelled thru Canada, America, etc. His brother Elisha was in the British Army and posted to India." This could explain why the 1901 census shows Frank and his wife living separately -- Frank in Abertillery, Monmouth and Maria elsewhere in Monmouth.  The list of Dr. Bernardo's Home Children who were shipped to Canada as "orphans" includes an Albert Prangley, age 15, shipped in 1889 on the SS Sardinian, along with his brother Thomas, age 13. They match exactly to the sons below and would give clarity to the preceding family tradition.  This branch is being researched by Vanessa Firmston (nee Prangley).
        Frank married Maria HILL b: ABT 1850 in Stourbridge, Worcester, England.  They had the following children:
        1. Edward Albert PRANGLEY, b 1875 in Stourbridge, Worcester, England.  d. 1958 in Wellington NZ. According to family tradition he was placed into a workhouse by his father, but it is now known that he was shipped to Canada with his brother Tom in 1889 among Dr. Bernardo's Children.  The 1901 Census for Canada shows an Albert Prangley, believed to be this Albert Prangley, living in High River, Alberta, Canada and working as a domestic servant to the Riley family.  He is recorded as having been born 5 JUN 1876 in Ontario.  As a domestic servant, his employers, who likely gave the census data, probably didn't know where he was born and just assumed Ontario, or, understandably, Albert may not have told them the truth.  Sometime after 1901 he immigrated to New Zealand where he is known to have married and had descendants.

        2. Thomas William PRANGLEY, b: 1876 in Stourbridge, Worcester, England.  He was shipped to Canada with his brother Albert in 1889 as on of Dr. Bernardo's Children.  He must have later returned to the UK as he is found in 1901 living Abertillery, Wales, working as a miner.

The following branch is being researched by Rick Hole.

Robert PRANGLEY/PRANGLY, b: ABT 1765 in Wiltshire, England married on 9 APR 1792 in Warminster, Wiltshire, England to Hannah WAILAN b: 1765 in Frome, Somerset, England.  They had the following children and later moved to Walcot, Bath, Somerset, England.  Robert died before 1841 and Hannah is found in 1841 as a widow with her daughter Ann and three orphaned grandchildren (whose father is uncertain).

    1. Has Children Richard PRANGLEY b: 1837 in Warminster, Wiltshire, England.  He married 22 SEP 1859 in Saint Denys, Warminster, Wiltshire, England to Margaret MARSH b: 1839 in Warminster, Wiltshire, England.  In 1851, he is living in Warminster with his widowed mother, Sarah Prangley, b. 1798 in Stapelford, Wiltshire, England. She is working as a shopkeeper. Her late husband is unknown.  In 1881 Richard is working as a solicitor's clerk.  Children:

  8. Has No Children Elizabeth PRANGLEY, b. ABT 10 MAY 1812 in Walcot, Bath, Somerset, England.  She married an unknown man and had descendants.

The following persons are believed to be descended from the preceding Robert Prangley, but it is not known by which parents.  The first three, James, Julia and Maria were found in 1841 living with Hannah Prangley (nee Wailin) and are presumed to be her grandchildren.  It appears that their parents were already dead by 1841 and no birth records have been found, so it's not known who their parents were, or even if they share the same parents.

  1. Has No Children James PRANGLEY, b. ABT 1826 in Walcot, Bath, Somerset, England.  In 1841 he was living in Walcot, Bath and working as a tinman's apprentice.

  4. Has No Children Ann PRANGLEY, b. ABT 1811 in England.  In 1841 she was residing in Walcot, Bath, Somerset, England and working as a servant in the household of Richard Lesling, presumably unmarried.  It is not certain that she is from this family.  She is placed here solely on geographic association.

  5. Has No Children Alfred PRANGLEY b: 1838 in Bath, Somerset, England.  In 1851 he is residing in what appears to be a boarding school. He is not found in later census records.  In 1841 he is shown with his sister Mary Ann 1829 and his mother Elizabeth 1801 in St. James, Somerset.

BRANCH #5 - The Prangley family in Brixton-Deverill

I have in my possession a copy of the first ever census taken on Brixton Deverill on 23 December 1791. It shows John Pranglen (a carpenter crossed out) widower with 2 children and his sister Elizabeth. Whilst Thomas Pranglen is not on the census, his house is occupied by tenants William White and his wife. Added to this census, possibly later in a different hand, is Noah Pranglen at Mrs. Pococks with her son Joseph, daughters Susanna and Mary, and Servant Ann Hull. Mr. Pocock has Grace Ruddock with him, a servant. So what has happened to all the Prangleys? I assume that Noah's parents died, but what about his brothers and sister? -- c/o Jennifer Smith

Has Children William PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 1680 in Wiltshire, England.  He married on 25 MAY 1701 in Saint Denys, Warminster, Wiltshire, England to Rachell/Rebecca KNIGHT b: ABT 1680 in England.  LDS gives William's wife's name as Rachell. Ancestry gives her name as Rebecca, with identical children.  (Interestingly, the only Rachell Knight shown in the IGI for this generation was born in 1670 in Andover, Hampshire, England and married on 26 NOV 1691 to Adam FIGGUS, but had no children.  Could this be a second marriage for her? see Figes and Andover entries elsewhere.)  They had the following children:
  1. Has No Children William PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 28 SEP 1702 in Upton Scudamore, Wiltshire, England
  2. Has No Children Ann PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 7 OCT 1704 in Upton Scudamore, Wiltshire, England
  3. Has No Children Mary PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 10 NOV 1707 in Upton Scudamore, Wiltshire, England
  4. Has No Children John PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 15 MAY 1710 in Upton Scudamore, Wiltshire, England
  5. Has No Children Elizabeth PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 7 OCT 1712 in St. Denys, Warminster, Wiltshire, England
  6. Has No Children Jonathan PRANGLEY/PRANGLING b: ABT 8 NOV 1714 in Bishopstrow, Wiltshire, England
  7. Has No Children James PRANGLEY/PRANGLEN b: ABT 15 MAY 1717 in St. Denys, Warminster, Wiltshire, England
  8. Has No Children Joseph PRANGLEY/PRANGLING b: ABT 26 JUL 1723 in Bishopstrow, Wiltshire, England
  9. Has Children Richard PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN/PRANGLING b: ABT 8 AUG 1725 in Bishopstrow, Wiltshire, England.  Richard married on 24 SEP 1748 in Saint Denys, Warminster, Wiltshire, England to Anne WHITMARSH b: ABT 1725 in England.  They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Daughter PRANGLEY b: ABT 12 FEB 1748 in Brixton Deverill, Wiltshire, England
    2. Has Children Richard PRANGLEY/PRANKLY b: ABT 1750 in Wiltshire, England.  No birth record has been found for Richard Pranglin/Prangley. It is by no means certain that the Richard Pranglin who married Elizabeth Hinton is a child of Richard Prangley and Anne Whitmarsh. However he fits chronologically, geographically and onomastically, and there are few enough Prangleys in Brixton Deverill at the time to suggest that they likely descend from a common family.  Thus, it is suggested that he is the Richard Prangley who married on 12 JUL 1779 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England to Elizabeth HINTON b: ABT 1755 in England and had the following family:
      1. Has No Children Richard PRANGLEY/PRANKLEY b: 3 OCT 1779 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England
      2. Has No Children Philip PRANGLEY/PRANKLEY b: 7 OCT 1781 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England
      3. Has No Children Hannah PRANGLEY/PRANGLEN b: ABT 6 MAR 1785 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England
      4. Has Children Noah PRANGLEY b: 7 OCT 1787 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  In 1851 he is living with his 4th wife, Ann Jemima Sutton. They have a 19-year old, Joshua Sutton, living with them and recorded as a "son in law". He is more likely a son by Jemima's first marriage. They are living four doors away Noah's son, James, and Elizabeth Prangley and family.  The 1841 census shows this family with Jemima as mother and children from the previous marriages confirming that these four marriages are all the same Noah.  Noah's birth is not found in the IGI. It was submitted by descendant Jennifer Smith.  Noah married firstly 9 AUG 1807 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England to Elizabeth ANDREWS b: ABT 1785 in England.  They had the following children:
        1. Has No Children Sarah Ann PRANGLEY b: ABT 13 NOV 1808 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  There is an Ann Prangley in 1851 working as a nursemaid in the house of a "nobleman's steward" in Maiden Bradley, Wiltshire, England about 5km west of Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England. Ann's birth place is recorded as Warminster, Wiltshire, which is only 5km north of Brixton-Deverill. This Sarah Ann is the only realistic candidate to be Ann, the nobleman's steward's nursemaid. Just who this nobleman is, is uncertain. Census records seem to indicate that his name could be Robert Stiles Jefferys, "farmer of 390 acres". The nobleman in question was most likely Edward Adolphus Seymour, 11th Duke of Somerset, whose residence was Maiden-Bradley.
        2. Has Children James PRANGLEY b: ABT 5 APR 1812 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  It is not certain that James is a son of Noah.  However he fits the chronology and in 1841 his is living next door to Noah in Brixton-Deverill and there is no other known family in the area that he could have come from.  He married on 20 AUG 1838 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England to Elizabeth Jane LONG b: ABT 1815.  1881 census shows him as a widower, residing with Elizabeth Brown.  James and Elizabeth had the following children:
          1. Has No Children Harriet Jane PRANGLEY b: ABT 23 DEC 1838 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  She married in 13 JUN 1867 in Holy Trinity, Clapham, Surrey, England to Edward PARSONS b: UNKNOWN.
          2. Has No Children Sarah Jane PRANGLEY b: ABT 24 MAY 1840 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  In 1881 she was living in Belmont, Warminster, Wiltshire, unmarried and working as a domestic servant for Frederick Wright Anderson, the curate.
          3. Has No Children John PRANGLEY b: ABT 30 JAN 1842 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  John is not found in any census records and is presumed to have died in childhood.
          4. Has No Children Matilda Jane PRANGLEY b: ABT 24 DEC 1843 in Brixton-Deverill, Wiltshire, England.  She is not found in the 1861 census and is presumed to have died young.

The following information is known about marriages and descendants for one, the other, or both of these Jonah Prangleys.  It is impossible to know which combination of the following families belongs to which of the above Jonah Prangleys at this time.  Their spouses and children are:

  1. Has Children Jonah PRANGLEY b: ABT 1747 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He married Mary POTTER(?), whose surname is not know for certain but is suggested by the names of her children.  It is also suggested that her father might have been named Nathaniel Potter, however no records of a matching Mary and Nathaniel Potter have been found so far. They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Jonah PRANGLEY b: ABT 16 MAY 1773 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  John shows this Jonah as the following:

  2. Has Children Jonah PRANGLEY b: ABT 1747 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  The following daughters are shown with only their father noted as Jonah Prangley and no mother given.  It is impossible to know which Jonah is their father or even whether they share the same father.  They could be daughters of Mary Potter or another woman (or women).  It is possible that Jane and Jean below may be the same person with conflicting transcription records.

Stray Branches

The following "branches" represent families that have been found in the IGI parish records collection or the 1881 census on line or the 1871/1861/1851 censuses at Ancestry.com, that have not been connected to any of the major branches shown above.  It is hoped that through future research many of these branches will be able to be connected to those above.  The information shown below is not verified. 

Has Children John PRANGLEY/PRANGLIN b: ABT 1695 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He married on 6 MAY 1719 in Fareham, Hampshire, England to Mary CATE b: ABT 1695 in England.  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children Richard PRANGLEY b: ABT 5 JUL 1719 in Fareham, Hampshire, England
  2. Has No Children Mary PRANGLEY b: ABT 14 MAY 1721 in Fareham, Hampshire, England

Has Children Hanah or Elizabeth PRANGLEY b: ABT 1700 in Wiltshire, England.  Three possible origins are known for this Hanah. She could be: 1. born Abt. 16 Jun 1690 as the daughter of George Prangley; 2. born Apr 1701 as the daughter of Thomas Prangley; 3. a widow married to one of the earlier Prangleys whose identity is unknown.  Her name at the time of her wedding is given as Hanah Prangley.  John Jennings transcriptions show her name at death as Elizabeth Minor.  She married on 27 DEC 1722 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Frances MINOR b: ABT 1700 in England.  They had the following child after which Hanah/Elizabeth died.

  1. Has No Children Frances MINOR b: ABT 31 JUL 1726 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England

Has No Children Robert PRANGLEY b: ABT 1700 in Wiltshire, England.  He married on 2 JUN 1728 in St. Edmunds, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England to Sarah CREW.

Has Children Lazarus PRANGLEY b: ABT 1720 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  He married firstly on 14 APR 1750 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England to Hannah CHAPMAN b: ABT 1730 in Wiltshire, England.  They had the following children.  The ten year gap between the first and second child strongly suggests that we may be looking at two different families, possibly two different marriages for the same Lazarus to two different women both named Mary, or possibly two different Lazaruses, or missing children.

  1. Has No Children Mary PRANGLEY b: ABT 15 MAR 1750/51 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
  2. Has No Children Jane PRANGLEY b: ABT 4 OCT 1761 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
  3. Has No Children Elizabeth PRANGLEY b: ABT 18 SEP 1763 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England

  7. Has No Children Hanah PRANGLEY b: ABT 31 JAN 1773 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England

As no other Lazarus Prangley is known, he is believed to have married secondly (or thirdly) BET 1773 AND 1782 to ELIZA b: ABT 1750 in England.  Or this could be a son Lazarus, b 1752-1760 and not recorded.  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children John PRANGLEY b: BET 1773 AND 1782 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England
  2. Has No Children James PRANGLEY (see James 1785 below) b: ABT 10 FEB 1782 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England

As the name Lazarus appears nowhere else it seems likely that the following Jacob and Lazarus are descended from the preceding Lazarus by some means:

Has No Children Jacob PRANGLEY b: 1793 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  Residing in 1841 and 1861 in Leigh's Green, Corsley, Wiltshire, England working as an agricultural labourer.  He married SARAH b: 1806 in Dilton Marsh, Wiltshire, England. (transcribed as "Langley" in 1841).  By geography is probably a grandson/nephew of Joseph Prangley and Mary Prangley, shown above, but by which son is uncertain.

  1. Has No Children Lazarus PRANGLEY b: 1823 in Corsley, Wiltshire, England.  In 1881 Lazarus is living with his second wife in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England. He is working as a general labourer and shows no children.  It is believed that it was this Lazarus Prangley who was accosted by petty thieves in 1844.  For a transcript of the trial click HERE.  He married firstly on 22 JUL 1848 in Christ Church, Warminster, Wiltshire, England to Rebecca Ann TURNER b: ABT 1820 in England and secondly BET 1848 AND 1881 in Wiltshire, England to JESSE b: 1818 in Warminster, Wiltshire, England.

American Strays

All of the known Prangleys who lived in the United States of America prior to 1880 appear to be descended from the Canadian Prangleys noted above, with the following exceptions.  All American Prangley births and marriages in the IGI and all occurrences of Prangleys in the 1880 census have been accounted for among the descendants of the Canadian Prangleys except for the following:

Pvt. William PRANGLEY, cited in the Archives of Maryland 1775-83, Vol 18, 20 MAY 1778 as a veteran of the war in Gunby's Regiment, and in the 7th Maryland Regiment 19 MAY 1778-1 NOV 1780.

From the history of Columbus, Muscogee County, Georgia 1827-1865, by John H Martin, publ 1874 (http://djvued.libs.uga.edu/F294xC7xM3/1f/history_of_columbus_ga.txt)  The following records were all transcribed by the author from original handwritten registers.  No record has been found of any Joseph Pranglin in census records.  Josiah and Joseph are both recorded as plasterers.  Thus it seems likely that they are the same person

  1. 1840 - Joseph Pranglen listed as a plasterer
  2. 1843 - Josiah Pranglin, listed as member of the Columbus Hook And Ladder Fire Company
  3. 1845 - Mr. Josiah Pranglin, an active and valuable member of the Fire Company, had a wall to fall on him and break both his thighs and otherwise injure him. He got well.

Thus, "ABT 3 DEC 1795" means the person was baptized on 3 DEC 1795, but his/her exact birth date is unknown.

Whereas "ABT 1795" means that there is no information on the person's birth date and an educated guess has been made that he/she was probably born sometime around 1795.
