I don't know if there is any connection, but I have the following: The last will and testament of John Pringle, of Shoreditch, a baker. A funeral card for the same John Pringle, who died dec 3rd 1858. A membership card for the National Anti-Corn Law League in the name of J Pringle. A funeral card for Mr George William Pringle, who died June 23rd 1860, aged 35 years. A business card for a G.W. Pringle, a beer engine maker and pewterer, of Tabernacle Walk, Finsbury.(London). A funeral card for Kate Pringle, who died 9th December 1881, aged 88 years. A funeral card for Mary Ann Pringle, who died July 21st 1901, aged 78 years. The bill for the funeral of the same Mary Ann Pringle.These are all from around the Shoreditch area, and I have no idea who they were. I found them amongst some papers of a relative who died when I cleared out his house. If you think there may be a connection to you, please let me know. Bob Waight

Hi Glynis

My Name's Rachel Pringle. My Dad is Anthony (Tony) Pringle and is your father's half brother. He is the son of William Pringle (you're dad's father) and Francis Pringle (nee Worth). They also had a son called Ian Pringle. We all still live in Darlington.

We just came across this tonight as my Dad has always wanted to find out more about Maurice. My Dad hasn't seen Maurice since 1966 when he visited him in Aldershot.

I hope you get this message as I realise it's been years since you originally posted this but would love to make contact :)
