Frederick Praught (Pracht) first appears as a private in the King's Rangers posted March 1782 to the Island of St John (renamed Prince Edward Island in 1799) under Captain Samuel Hayden to relieve Major Hierlihy's troop. The King's Rangers were local militia troops raised by British Loyalists in New England. Many of the officers of this troop posted to PEI had originally joined the New Jersey Volunteers. As the war in US began dying, various efforts were made to attract Loyalists settlers to the Island, including the soldiers posted there.
In Oct. 1785 by an order in council, Governor Patterson confirmed a grant to Frederick Praught "formerly of Monmouth Co New Jersey" of 100 acres in Lot 50 between lands granted Lt. Throckmorton (also of Monmouth Co., NJ) and Ensign Beers (of NJ) in an area that became known as Cherry Valley. Some of this land had been vacated by the earlier French settlers. In 1788, Fred traded his grant for another nearby, beside Beers. Fred prospered as a farmer, adding 150 acres from Throckmorton and Beers in 1794-95. Finally, in 1801, he purchased 200 acres in the hamlet of Pownal Lot 49 and relocated there, allegedly because his relatively younger wife Susannah Wagner wanted to be close to German speaking families - the Jenkins (Henckell) and Ballem (Baum). The earlier property was sold to the Irving's and in more recent times was referred to as "the old Irving place". The Pownal property can be located by Fred's sale of an acre on which "the frame of a meeting house has been lately erected" to the Wesleyan Methodist Society for the sum of 20 pounds in 1812.
Going back to the family name: in June 1784, Frederick appears as "Prout" in the troop muster role, with a wife and 2 children under 10 years, having drawn provisions to April 1784, and being granted 100 acres Pownal Bay Lot 50. Note, most officers had families with them, but of 62 privates only 3, including Fred, did so. In March 1785, he is listed as Frederick Praught in a general election poll. In Oct. 1785, his land grant deed is to Frederick Praught. He appears as Frederick "Prock" in a newspaper petition 1792 Feb. 25 supporting Governor Fanning. The 1798 census of Lot 50 has Frederick Praught as well as his son John Praught, as latter now married. In 1802, Frederick Praught served as a juror on a Supreme court case. His will prepared in 1821 is signed Frederick "his X mark" Praught. Family tradition says the name was previously Pracht, meaning "splendid or boastful" in German, and the pronunciation Prokt led to Praught when spelled by Scottish clerks. I found some support for this in Pennsylvania where a Daniel Pracht arrived in 1751 from Germany and appears in PA records as Pracht, Prag, Braugh, Braught, and Praught. However, the only current Praughts I have ever found are all descendants of our Fred.
Fred Praught, the Loyalist, married Susannah Wagner. They had 8 children grow up - Catherine, John, Mary, William, David, Ann, Peter, and Fred. The eldest two, Catherine bc1778 and John, were born in USA before coming to PEI. The rest were born on the Island, the youngest - Fred, in 1802. Fred, the Loyalist, died 1831 Dec 22 at 102 years according to the newspaper, although the 1798 census enters him in 16-60y column, rather than the 60+ needed to suit age listed at death. Fred's will, prepared 1821 Nov 16, divided the Pownal property 50 acres each to his sons William, David, Peter, and Fred; 5 shillings each to daughter Catherine, and son John as they have received their "full share beforehand"; 5 shillings to daughter Mary "as she has received one good cow already"; and to daughter Ann "all my moveable property except the household furnishings and farming utensils" and "what she has received beforehand to be deducted from her share of the cattle"; lastly "myself and my dearly beloved wife Susannah shall be maintained in a decent moderate manner .... by our above named sons". The will was not proved until Oct 1841 - perhaps this is when Susannah died?, or perhaps prompted by the temporary return of recently married Fred jr from NB?
