Research Notes: Husband - Thomas Prather

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631844412 :

Thomas Prater was born in Eaton Water, Wiltshire, England. When he was a young man, England was expanding its control and development of the Colonies in America. The King of England knew he could not hold control of his distant domain without the allegiance of his subjects that went there. So keeping with the fuedal system, he offered property to those "born of Gentry" that would go there to claim it. By doing this he knew that the younger children born to those who held power and/or property by the grace of the King in England would go to the Colonies to claim land for themselves. The younger children of "the gentry" of England generally had very little inheritance, due to the practice of giving the bulk of a father's property to the first born son in the family (along with any titles). Thus, the only way a younger son could gain title, position, or property was by marriage or by the grace of the King. This new offering of the King to give property to anyone born of gentry was well accepted by the young men of England who were looking to improve their chances for success and prosperity.

Thomas Prater, being born of Gentry, was one of those inticed to come to America. He had relatives who had already made the long trip to America. John Powell was such a person. Thomas Prater, being under age, indentured himself to his cousin, John Powell, and gained passage to America where he worked with John Powell for five years before getting married to Mary at which time he received his property (Virginia).

Thomas Prater was only 18 years old when he came to the Colonies. It must have been quite an adventure for such a young man born and raised on a manorial estate in Northern Wiltshire to board a ship to a new land. He must have experienced many hardships. It could be compared today with boarding a rocket ship to fly to a new settlement on the Moon.

He came on board the ship 'Marie Providence' which landed at Elizabeth Citties, VA (near what is now Newport News). His name is recorded in various spellings (Prater, Prether, Prator, Prather), but Prather is used more often in the Colonies, while Prater was used in England. He came to the Colonies in 1622 from the Latton / Eaton Water Estates, on the Cricklade, Wiltshire, England. Thomas was one of three brothers who came to the Colonies between 1620 and 1623. 16

Research Notes: Child - Jonathan Prather

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631750859 and http://www.2fools.net/book-0001/0003-0016.html :

Jonathan was born in Virginia and later moved to Maryland in about 1652/58. His name is recorded in several documents with it spelled several different ways. Land documents tended to list his name as Jonathan Prether, but when he signed the document he signed Jonathan Prater. He is also recorded in such documents as Prater, Prator, Prether, Praither, and Prather. Such was the level of education those days. Most people "sounded out" the spelling and then spelled that way. The names Prater and Prather are the most commonly used spellings in documents concerning Jonathan.

When Jonathan died his wife remarried to John Smith; a very wealthy Planter. He was very good to Jonathan's children and when he died he willed them a Plantation he called "Orphan's Gift" which was located near the city of St. Mary in Maryland. John Smith's will was proved 13 Oct 1707. Jane (Prather) Smith's will was proved 7 Dec 1713.

Jonathan Prather's Coat-of-Arms was registered with the College of Heraldry and has proven to be the continuing and long established "Prater Family" whose ancestrial estates were located on Eaton Water, in the county of Wiltshire, England. The Eaton Water Estates include Latton Manor and Inglesham Manor which are located along the head waters of the Thames River, North of Swindon, Wiltshire, England. Jonathan used the "Prater" coat-of-arms on some of his documents.

Jonathan Prather was transported by water from Virginia up Chesapeake Bay and the Potomic River to Swan Creek, then to Calvert County, Maryland (now Prince George's County) with four men and one other woman; Alexander Forcarson, Robert MacKay and wife, William Woodrose, William Mill, and William Jones, in a small vessel owned by young George Reed of Calvert County, Maryland. We suspect that the "other woman" was Lyle Jane MacKay, sister of Robert.

Vol. I, p. 35 "Calendar of Wills - Maryland"
Jonathan Prather and wife Jane, on Swan Creek, built their home on their estate they called "Prather Hall Plantation".

They did not live there long and disposed of it to George Gouldsmith, who in his Will of April, 1666, bequeathed Prather Hall to his daughter, Mary Gouldsmith.

This "Prather Hall" was located near the present site of Ft. Washington, near what became Swan Creek Road and the Potomic River (about 10 miles south of the present Capitol building, Washington D.C.).

Many incorrect records exist that claim that Jonathan was born in England, but these were assumptions made by people who were involved in the "early" research of our family. Research continues. It was also reported that Jonathan Prather and Thomas Prater (the father of Jonathan) were not of the same family. ......but even these earlier researchers have stated that Jonathan was from Latton, Wiltshire, and Thomas was from Eaton Water, Wiltshire. Little did they know that these two places are in fact the same estate. Eaton Water, Latton Manor, Inglesham Manor all adjoin one another and were owned by John Prater in 1547, and later by his son George who died in 1564. Their property was so vast that it bordered three county lines in Northern Wiltshire.

"Eaton Water" was located in the area known today as Eaton Hastings / Lechlade / Inglesham, and also included Latton Manor which is located along the bank of the Thames River in North central Wiltshire (about 4 miles north of Swindon).

We now know that Jonathan was born near Newport News, VA, and was the son of Thomas (Prater) Prather of "Eaton Water, Wiltshire, England" who landed in Elizabeth Cities, Virginia in 1622. Thomas was between 18 and 20 years old when he came to what is now America. Thomas was born in Eaton Water, on the Criklade, Northern Wiltshire, 1602/1604. His son Jonathan was his heir in America. Jonathan Prather's estate was valued at 13,750 pounds at his death. Jonathan, and his wife Jane, lived in their home near the present site of Ft. Washington on the Potomac River, Swan Creek Road, about 10 miles due South of the U.S. Capitol Building. It was called "Prather Hall".
