Richard PRONGER (c1620-1657)

and Judith (c1625-1708)


Richard Pronger and Judith married sometime before or about 1646 and possibly in or near Nuthurst, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)  (I have not been able to find a marriage for them in the Sussex marriage index.)

Richard Pronger's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was buried on 7 March 1656/7 in Nuthurst.  (I am guessing he was born about 1620 +/- 10 years?  Might he have left a will?)

Judith's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  As Judith Pronger of Horsham she was buried on 13 April 1708 in Nuthurst.

    Richard married Mary Tupet or Tuper on 18 June 1678 in Warnham, Sussex.

    Mary wife of Richard Pronger was buried on 19 August 1699 in Nuthurst.

    Richard, or perhaps a son, may have married Grace Mockford on 14 November 1700 in Bolney.

    (Did they have any children?  Might Richard had left a will?)

  2. Edward Pronger was baptised on 14 April 1650 in Nuthurst.

    Edward married Mary French on 29 May 1683 in Bolney, Sussex.

    (Did they have any children?  Might Edward had left a will?)

    John was buried on 4 August 1689 in Nuthurst.

    John married Joane.

    (Did they have any more children?  Did John leave a will?)

    John and Joane had the following son:

    1. Thomas Pronger was born on 20 October 1681 and baptised on 27 October 1681 in Horsham.  He married Sarah Halloway in 1706.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Abraham Pronger was baptised on 1 January 1655/6 in Nuthurst.  An Abraham Pronger was buried on 16 March 1735/6 in Nuthurst.

    Abraham married Mary Jupp on 2 October 1676 in Capel, Surrey.  They were both then of Nuthurst, Sussex.

    Mary wife of Abraham Pronger was buried on 10 April 1719 in Nuthurst.

    (Did Abraham leave a will?)

    Abraham and Mary may have had the following son:
