David Prothero / Anne Thomas Prothero - any family there in Wales?
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 20:02 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
I am looking for any family of my great, great, grandfather David Prothero (1805-1867) & Anne Thomas (1821-1865?) who were married in Brecknockshire on Nov 26, 1841.  They had nine children in total; Ann, Elizabeth, David, Tim, Henry, William, John, Margaret and Mary. David and Anne are buried in Llanddetty church from what I can tell, along with their daughter Ann (1842-1862).
David was born in Carnycadarn while Anne was born in Llanstephan, Radnorshire.
Their son David was my great grandfather (1847-1903). He emigrated to Australia on the ship "Lightning" in 1876 via Glenelg SA.  The attached photo was taken in 1880 in Adelaide South Australia.
Thank you for any assistance.
Jeff

Hello Jeff, and welcome to Rootschat.

I live in the area of Wales where your ancestors lived, although I'm afraid I can't claim to have any knowledge of them, other than the places where they lived.  However, I see there is a tree online which contains information regarding this family:

Hi GS,
Thanks for your quick response! I too found that listing for Timothy. Funny thing is that he had never come up in any of my previous searches until tonight! All the other siblings did but not him.
Thanks again.
