I am gathering information of William Prindle who settled in New Haven Conn. and lived on Issac Allerton's (one of the Mayflower passengers) farm. It is reported that he change his name from Pringle to Prindle upon reaching the New world from Scotland. Please send me any relevant information.
Thank you

William Prindle

Please read the the posting in
America's first Families..
under Ancestor Roll of Honor and then to William Prindle/Pringle.
This was written by my mother Estelle Pringle ( she was a pioneer of her time and never gave up her maiden name ).
This might answer a few of your questions with the reference data on the posting.
If you have any more questions please email me and I will gladly send you her email address, she has a vast amount of material on Prindle/Pringle.
We have even been guests at Torwoodlee, the Pringle Scotish estate.
Happy hunting.

The Prindle Book by F.C. Prindle can also be obtained from Higginson Books. It is a great reference book to have on hand.

Prindle book:Visit to White House

Thanks for the source address.
The story: My mother, Lucy Prindle graduated from college in 1911 or, perhaps, January 1912. Six months of travel as a graduation present took her to Washington D.C. to visit a didtant cousin (?) Rear Admiral Franklin Prindle. One afternoon he invited her to join him while he paid his respects at the White House. Her mind saw this as an opportunity to meet the President.
Imagine her surprise when they drove through the gate, up the drive and under the portico. A butler descended the steps, held out a silver tray and "Cousin Franklin" placed his calling card on the tray and drove away! We have chuckled over his obvious sense of humor. Miriam

Please tell me that later they were invited back! Was Franklin an assoc. to the White House people,staff, pres.? Was he just being silly? There has to be more to this wonderful man, and your Prindle line! Iam so enthralled with the Prindle people, since many of mine are gone and Iam really digging for information. how is Lucy connected to your Prindle lines? Where does the Prindle connection tie into your people? I love your story! I will look forward to hearing from you again,reguards, Leah
