The following history has been accumulated, researched and maintained by Colin Pratt. This has been carried out over many years since the death of my Father in 1979. I realised that I knew little of my family history, my Uncle and Cousins in Western Australia, or of relatives in England. It was then that I set out on a quest to find my roots and record them for future generations to read and learn of their origins. It is hoped that some member of our families take up the challenge to add to these records, both future and past generations, after I relinquish the task.

The PRATT's above originate from the Counties of Surrey, Huntingdonshire, Derbyshire, Middlesex, London & Warwickshire, England.

I would like to record the invaluable assistance provided by my Aunt, Iris PRATT, for the detailed information she provided from her memory, via hundreds of letters over the years. It never ceased to amaze me how she could recall information of both her parental and material families (even to the colour of their eyes or how their hair was parted), much of it learnt from her mother who had passed on in 1967, some 25 years earlier. On obtaining certificates later on, it was surprising how accurate her information of events was. I am pleased to say that she is still with us, living in South Holmwood Surrey, aged 91.

My Cousin Dennis PRATT in Western Australia joined me in this research in 2002 and spent invaluable hours searching through the GRO registers at the local library that has added to our family tree.
