The Thomas Prossor family of Waterford
Descendants of Thomas live in Australia, notably Barbara Prossor-Powell who can be contacted at bprossorpowell at hotmail.com
Barbara has kept a family file "just in case" anyone might want to develop the family tree. She says there are two other extended Prossor families in Victoria but is unsure where they connect.
A note of caution: it is vital that researchers check this line against original sources. A lot of this material was originally based on "The Prossor Tradition" a verbal account of the family given by Barbara's great grandfather late in his life (he died in his 90s) to her grandmother. Barbara says: "It was what he knew, but he knew very little." She says that gt grandfather's father had died when gt grandfather was a toddler - and he was raised by his mother's family, with only limited contact with his Prossor relatives.
