Daniel Pratt of Plymouth Colony

April 9, 2014 , ,

My 11th great-grandfather was born in Plymouth Colony in 1640. His father was a joiner who was well known in the colony. We know little about his life. He died in Providence, Rhode Island the same year his second child, a daughter,was born. It was common for people to move to Rhode Island from Plymouth for religious reasons. Later some members of the family are Quakers, and this may have been Daniel’s persuasion also.

Interesting. I traced some ancestors from the La Rochelle area to Portsmouth, to London (Huguenot church) They fled France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. They went to Rhode Island, but there were already French settlers there and they were moved on to found what eventually became New York- Arnauds and Perliers, as I remember.

Those guys were super early, pre Plymouth I think. New York was there with Dutch colonists when the Pilgrims went to MA. They were harsh with religion and threw may people out…and some left on their own. Rhode Island was a haven for religions of all kinds..they even had Jews.

I have been working on this line of the Pratts as well, probably the same line. I am having a difficult time finding Henry, son of Daniel Pratt. Is there any forma documentation I could look up or that you have to share confirming Henry?

Could someone please tell me who Henry Pratt is? I see that he is supposed to be Daniel Pratt 1640-1680 son, however, I cannot make him fit in my tree. I see he had a sister named Rachael. If there is conclusive information that Henry is in fact Daniel Pratts son, as this Henry would be my 8th great grandfather. Were these his children from a wife named Anne??? I would be most appreciative to acquire such information or be told where I might find concrete evidence of this Thomas.
Thank you,
Charles Grant
