Hi Tess,

I may be able to provide you with some information on my PROFFITT family. They are from Walsall. My great Grandfather was Arthur Henry PROFFITT (b. 1876) and he had brothers Ernest, Charles, Thomas and Sidney. No Rosie or katherine that I can be sure of though. Maybe there is a link to your husband's family?

Look forward to your reply,
Julie :)

Hi Lynne,

I can't provide any information further back than my Great Grandfather, but his mother was called Leah (nee HADLEY). Leah's eldest son, Thomas, married Alice - thier son was Clifford PROFFITT (b. 1917 d. 13/6/1944 Burma) m. Florence Mabel ? - he was a Chindit in WWII.

Arthur Henry PROFFITT1 (b. abt 1876 Walsall) m. Leah WORTHINGTON  (b. abt 1876 Willenhall)
     Arthur Frank PROFFITT (b. 1/7/1908 Walsall, d. 14/6/1979 Hasland, Chesterfield) m. Marjorie Edna FRANKHAM (b. 9/4/1911, d. 1996?, Wordsley, West Midlands)
          Roger Frank PROFFITT (b. 21/8/1940 Walsall) m. Myrna Lilian RUSSON (b. 16/9/1942 Dudley) 28/9/1963 St Augustine’s Dudley
               Deborah Jane PROFFITT
               Julie Myrna PROFFITT (me)
          Dorothy Edna PROFFITT (b. 31/3/1942) M. Alistair MAC LENNAN
     Lillian Mary PROFFITT (b. 27/4/1913 Walsall)
Ernest James (?) PROFFITT (b. abt 1877 Walsall [6b,721]) m. Sophia LILLEY (b. abt 1877 Normanton Derbys) 1900, Walsall
Sydney Frank PROFFITT (b. abt 1879 Walsall Staffs)
Charles PROFFITT (b. abt 1880 Walsall Staffs)

If you can identify any link I would love to hear about it - alternatively I am trying to piece together all the Proffitt's from the area into a huge family tree, so any info you can give me would be most welcome.

Regards,
Julie
