A new member, @alexandra.l.collard, is seeking further information on her Prowse tree. "Thanks for adding me I look forward to being in this group and hopefully gleaning useful information for my family tree. My great grandmother was Anna Sibella Prowse, daughter of George Prowse of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I have traced his tree back to William Prowse (1490) of Devon England, but I can't seem to go further. If anyone has information on his parents or spouse, it would be much appreciated."
George Fabes Prowse b. 1805 in Devon - d. 1883 in Montreal. m. Sarah Neal 1805 - 1871
A typical G.R Prowse wood stove c.1895. These, and other G.R. Prowse stoves revolutionized large and commercial kitchens across Canada and parts of the USA.

This blog mentions Charles C (Chapman) Prowse, who established some of the first orchards in the interior of BC in the early 1900's. Charles is the son of George Roger Prowse, who is Alexandra's @alexandra.l.collard GG Uncle.
The blog also contains a link to information that mentions William Prowse b.1794, who emigrated to Charlottetown PEI in 1823. His son Samuel became a well-known politician in Canadian history. William also had a son named Joseph Jarvis Prowse. One of our Facebook members, Steve Woodhead, is working on a tree with Robert Prowse 1760-1845 and Mary Jarvis 1760-? at the top of it and that couple have a son, William born 1794, so I think we may be on the verge of connecting Steve's branch to the PEI Prowses!
