Thanks Elaine! The Rowder/Trowden middle name fits as it crops up as a middle name in a later generation!

That's odd ... there are deaths in:

1852 for Prothringda Rowden Southwood in East Stonehouse, Plymouth
1852 for Prothirzda Rowden Southwood in East Stonehouse, Plymouth
1854 for Prothirda Bartlett in Plymouth
1868 for Prothirzda Rowden Southwood in Plymouth (Infant)

Looks like they wanted to preserve the name!

Forget that - the two 1852 are the same.

aaaaah - there's some ammo for a teenage girly strop.

Nonchalantly saying "Just be grateful I never named you after Auntie Prothirzda" and walking away will stop them dead in their tracks
