Prater Genealogy & History

Prater is a very old name arising from the Latin word praetor, the title of various leaders and officials in ancient Rome; it could also stem from partum, meaning a meadow. Prater family history notes that the first recorded spelling was that of Willelmus Pretor, in the Documents illustrative of the Social and Economic History of the Danelaw in 1150. John Prater settled in Newfoundland in 1622; Thomas Prater settled in Virginia in 1622; and Jonathan Prather arrived in Virginia sometime between 1634 and 1789. Among members of the Prater genealogy are found American musician David Prater; American football player Matt Prater; and British naturalist Stanley Henry Prater.
