James PRONGER (1763-?)

and Elizabeth SIMMONS (1769-?)

 

James Pronger and Elizabeth Simmons married by banns on 25 May 1790 in Cuckfield, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Cuckfield.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

James Pronger may have been baptised on 23 October 1763 in Nuthurst, Sussex and have been the son of Thomas Pronger and Mary Peters.

Elizabeth Simmons date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might she have been baptised as Elizabeth Symmonds on 4 June 1769 in Cuckfield, and have been the daughter of Thomas Symmonds and Mary Picknall?

 

James Pronger and Elizabeth Simmons had 2 known children:

  1. Thomas Pronger was baptised on 7 August 1791 in Cuckfield.

    Thomas may have married twice, firstly to Mary Courtney by banns on 2 February 1817 in Broadwater, Sussex.  They were both said to have been of Broadwater.

    Thomas and Mary had the following children:

    1. Elizabeth Pronger was baptised on 23 January 1820 in Brighton.  Her father was then a carpenter of Oxford Place.

    The 1841 census recorded that 50 year old Thomas Pronger was living in Gloster Street, Brighton along with his 35 year old wife Mary and 3 year old son Frederick.  Thomas was then a carpenter and he and his son were born in Sussex, whilst Mary was not.

    When the 1851 census was recorded, Thomas was a 59 year old journeyman carpenter and he was living with his wife and 2 children (Frederick and Jane) at 12 Gloster Street, Brighton.  He gave his place of birth as Cuckfield and Mary as Pinhoe in Devon.  Mary was then 48 years old.
