Albert Perkins Prowse (December 24, 1858 – June 20, 1925) was a merchant and political figure in Prince Edward Island, Canada. His father, Samuel Prowse (August 28, 1835 – January 14, 1902), was a Canadian merchant and politician. Samuel was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, the son of William Prowse who moved from Devonshire, England, to Prince Edward Island in 1823.
My request is - does anyone know anything about William Prowse? Did he come from the Devonport area and was he born in 1804. I am interested in seeing if there is a connection between this branch and my family tree.
