There is still a lot I don't know about our Sproat family history. I will provide a short summary of what I do know. If anyone has a connection please email me.
My g.g.g.grandfather was George Sproat and he married Agnes Hastie in or about 1817 in Kirkcudbright, Scotland. I think they had a few children however the only one I know about is my g.g.grandfather George Sproat (born about 1825). It looks like George and Agnes immigrated to Canada around 1840 with their family and settled in the Seaforth area.
My g.g.grandfather was George Sproat and his wifes name was Mary. They were both born in Scotland. They had the following children: James Black Sproat (my great grandfather)b. 1863, d.1930 Isabella Sproat b. 1854 Adam Sproat b. 1857 Agnes Elizabeth Sproat b. 1865 George Sproat b. 1862 John Sproat b about 1865 David Sproat b 1867 Mary Sproat b. 1870
My great grandfather James Black Sproat married Jennie Taylor Reid in 1867 in Seaforth. They had one child, my grandfather George Roy Sproat who was born on April 17, 1888.
