Winter 2001 and Revised:1 May 2012

Working from the IGI and Ancestral File, we have created the following tentative family tree. Here is what we have so far:

B. William Prathus, b. c. 1855, Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland, per Ancestry.com .

He m. Margaret Cairny. Children:

  1. Henrie Prettous
  2. William Pratus 1575 –

  4. William Pratus 1577 –
  5. Margaret Pratus 1579 –
  6. Elspet Pratus 1582 –
  7. Robert Pratus 1584 –

  3. James Prates 1638 –
  4. John Pratis 1640 –

1. (perhaps son) John Prates was b. 1627 and the Ancestral Files calles him "of Alloa", suggesting that he may have been born at, or near, Alloa.

The IGI and Ancestral File does not identify John's parents, but the phonetic pronunciation of his surname, together with his Alloa residence in Alloa 1744, suggests he may be related to the Pratice families living there in that time frame. For more about them, see William Prentice of Kincardine, Scotland in our Spring 2000 issue.
