Early Origins of the Prowte family


The surname Prowte was first found in Bedfordshire where some of the first records of the family were listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273: Hugh le Proude; and Robert le Proud. The same rolls listed: John Prude in Buckinghamshire; Cristina le Prute in Oxfordshire; and Herbert le Prute in Wiltshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Two sources postulates that the name was "perhaps from Old English personal name Prud, and perhaps connected with Pryde." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
