Thomas Pronger and Harriet Budd married in
the third quarter of 1854 in the Petersfield registration district.
Thomas Pronger was born about 1827 in Horsham, as per the
census, but his baptism has not been found in a transcript of the baptism
When the 1871 census was recorded, Thomas was a 44 year old sergeant and
Harriet was 37. He gave his place of birth as Horsham and she as East
Listed in Surrey. Also with them were 4 children (Francis, Marian,
John and Montague).
Thomas and Harriet had the following children:
Francis M. Pronger was born about 1856
in Petersfield, Hampshire. He was a 15 year old scholar in 1871.
Marian Pronger was born about 1859 in Ipswich, Suffolk.
She was a 12 year old scholar in 1871.
John H. Pronger was born about 1862 in
Ireland. He was a 9 year old scholar in 1871. In 1881 he was
a 19 year old coachbuilder's apprentice.
Montague G. Pronger was born about
1864 in Devonport, Devon. He was a 7 year old scholar in 1871.
In 1881 he was a 17 year old coachbuilder's apprentice.
Thomas married for a second time to Frances.
In 1881, Thomas was 54 years old and permanent staff (Chelsea Pensioner).
He was living in Newby in Scarborough, Yorkshire along with his 38 year old
wife Frances from Malton, Yorkshire and 2 children (John and Montague).
Thomas again said he was born in Horsham.
The 1891 census recorded that Thomas and Frances, together with their
daughter Eva were living at 34 Trafalgar Street East in Scarborough.
He was then a 64 year old army pensioner and she was 48. Thomas yet
again said he was born in Horsham.
Thomas and Frances had 1 known daughter:
Eva V. Pronger was born about 1882 in
Yorkshire (possibly Throxenby). She was 9 years old in 1891.
Either of Thomas's marriage certificate could give the name of his father,
which might help find his baptism. I've not identified him in the 1841
or 1851 census, and suspect he was in Ireland at the time of the 1861
census. He may have been born in a parish near Horsham and given that
as his place of birth simply because it was the nearest town of any size.
Or he may have been illegitimately and born and his baptism under his
mother's and then subsequently taken his father's surname. There was a
Thomas Pronger baptised in Cowfold in 1825, but he is
Henry Pronger and Caroline Cragg married
by banns on 22 January 1871 in Warnham, Sussex. He was a 49 year old bachelor
and coachman. She was a 49 year old widow. Their fathers were
named as Edmund Pronger a farmer and Joseph Pelham
a bricklayer. The witnesses to their marriage were George
Miles and Frances Cragg. (Therefore, Henry
born about 1822.)
Henry Pronger died aged 75 years and was buried on 28
December 1889 in Warnham, therefore, he was born about 1814.
