The Prance Family


Over the years many members of the Prance family have owned or had part shares in ships, in most cases their livelihoods depended on them. In many cases we know very little about them but in some we know a great deal about the ships themselves, those who sailed on them and the adventures in which they were involved. The information in this section has been gathered by Christopher Prance with assistance from the North Devon Maritime museum in Appledore which has access to records for the area and has researched the local maritime history. The following are those we know about so far.
