Moses Prangnell, Hampshire
« on: Thursday 15 February 18 02:01 GMT (UK) »
I have had a brick wall at my ancestor Moses Prangnell for some time now and am hoping someone may be able to help please.

From the 1841 census I think he was born around 1793 but the page is very faded so its hard to be sure.

He married Hannah Wilton 14 Jun 1812 and the witnesses were Sarah Prangnell and Moses Wilton but I'm not sure how Sarah is connected but I think Moses is Hannah's brother.

Moses Prangnell is in the 1841 census in East Dean, Hampshire with his wife and I think 6 children. As I said it is very faded and hard to read a lot of it. I couldn't find him originally by the index and had to search through the East Dean census.

In all I have found 8 children.

His wife is a widow by the 1851 census and I have found a possible death record dated 1848 in Romsey but its just the index so its hard to tell if its the correct person.

I am hoping someone may be able to help me track down his birth, death, parents etc. Also how Sarah Prangnell is connected (sister, mother?) Thank you.

Thanks for your help Trish. I had wondered if that death record was his. I have just had a GRO pdf order in for a bunch of birth and death certificates but hadn't got around to ordering this one yet. It nice being able to get the pdfs cheaper but they still add up so can only get a few at a time. I'm still waiting on a marriage certificate to be delivered.

Moses Prangnell m Hannah Wilton 14 June 1812 at Lockerley

Possible baptism for Hannah?
Hannah Wilton daughter of William & Mary Wilton bapt 27 Sept 1795 at Michelmersh

Unfortunately I can't see any siblings for Hannah.  :(

Moses is being elusive.  I know he said he was born in county in 1841, but I can't find a baptism for him  :(

Thanks Little Nell. That was the Baptism I thought was most likely. My Uncle has done a fair bit of research and he thought the Mothers maiden name was MITCHELL. There is a marriage dated 3 Jan 1795 in Michelmersh between Mary MITCHELL and William WILTON that looks likely.

It was my Uncle that found Moses who was apparently born about 1791 in Awbridge but I haven't been able to back that up with my own records yet.
