Prosser, Thomas  Son  M  13  b Knighton
Prosser, William  Son  M  10  b Knighton
Prosser, David  Son  M  3  b Pilleth
Prosser, Margaret  Daughter  F  8  b Knighton
Prosser, Anne  Daughter  F  5  b Pilleth

1861 census - reference RG09, 4233, 36, 24

I use FindMyPast for census information.
FreeBMD for Births, Marriages & Deaths.

Occasionally Ancestry or GenesReunited, if I am unsure of a result.
Sometimes UKBMD - it has many county daughter sites.

Plus quite a few other bits 'n bobs.
