Prowse memorials in Chagford church

Devon Notes & Queries, vol. 9, Part 4 (1916), pp. 121-123. [Supplementary to vol. 9, p.81, par.77.]


F. Were

Prepared by Michael Steer

Were's submission is a rather lengthy and blunt criticism of Lega-Weekes' earlier 'Note' on the Prouse family memorials in St Michael's Church. That together with her rebuttal of these several criticisms all appear in the 1916-17 collection of D & CN & Q. Were attempts to correct her errors in certain of the heraldic blazons as well as the order in which she presented them from the marshalling on the Prouse family's Chagford shield. He also attempts to further unravel some of the intricacies of a lengthy and excessively convoluted Prowse pedigree.
