Australian Prowse's from Stokeinteignhead, Devon, England
My Prowse family line may be traced back to Richard Prowse of
Stokeinteignhead in Devon, England. He married Elizabeth Cowell about 1820
and had a large family including 5 sons. Each son (William, Charles, Richard
Thomas, Henry John and John Walter) and one daughter (Amelia) emigrated to
Australia. I have attempted to trace the Prowse descendants of each son.
I have uploaded the details to the rootsweb.com World Connect Project. The
information may be found at;
The information is substantially based on;
Victorian Births, Deaths and Marriages records
International Genealogical Index
British 1851 Census
Public Records Office of Victoria, Unassisted Shipping Index
I have suppressed information on anyone who is living, or who is less than
100 years old and not known to have died.
Please contact me if you have any interest in this group of Prowses, or if
you can contribute any additional information.
