Thanks for your response. I wasn't aware of the second William son's death...I must have missed it. Do you have his burial date and location...presumably Wolborough?
My Anne Prowse was baptised 12th Jan 1753 Highweek, daughter of Richard Prowse and Charity Howard (married Highweek 19th Dec 1745). Richard Prowse was baptised 11th Mar 1714 Highweek, son of Richard (or Rickard) Prowse (or Prous) and Elizabeth (?). This Richard Prowse was baptised 28th Jan 1686 Highweek, son of Gilbert (or Gilbarto/Gilbarte) Prowse (or Prouse/Prous) and Susan Langworthy (bap 16th July 1645, Wolborough). Gilbert was the son of John Prowse and that is where I have no further tracing. Does it connect to your Prowse tree?
The Will unfortunately has no age mentioned for William (or his location or names of any siblings). I haven't traced his naval record but I'm sure it would be recorded somewhere.
