About Anthony Thomas Prater, Gentleman

Kingston was the manor of Anthony Thomas Prater's grandparents. His grandmother was Elene (Kingston) Prater.

Anthony was the second born in the family. His father was very wealthy, thus his inheritance was substantial, but it was the custom in those times to give most of the inheritance, titles etc. to the first born son. Anthony inherited Stanton St. Bernard Manor which is located in south central Wiltshire (near famous Stone Henge). His oldest brother Richard was the heir to most of their father's property and titles. Anthony was named in Richard's will as "trustee" of the estates when Richard died in 1580. Anthony was trustee for six years until Richard's son George came of age.

Anthony had much trouble with the family and was taken to court many times. The Earl of Bolingbroke which Anthony "held" under wrote in the court record that "Anthony Prater, a troublesome man". Anthony's business dealings were often in dispute.

Anthony Prater was born in 1545 and inherited Stanton Manor. When his wife Judith Ivye died in 1578, Anthony placed a monumental inscription to her Prater Coat of Arms, and names six of their children including their youngest son Thomas.

After Judith died Anthony married the widow of his brother-in-law, but had no other known children


Anthony Prater was trustee of the Estate from 1580 to 1586 (6 years) when his brother Richard died.
