My research expanded when I had a letter with an enquiry from an unknown cousin in Australia. She had read of my interest in the name in a magazine. With the support of four prospective "members", two in Australia and two in USA, in 2000 I registered the names Praed, Praid, Prade and Praad in Category C with the Guild of One-Name Studies. I issued our first newsletter "On Praed" in July 2000 and we now have a membership of around 40 worldwide.
For those of you looking for information on the well known actor Michael Praed (aka Robin Hood - the Hooded Man), I am sorry to disappoint you, he was born Michael Prince and took the name Praed when he became an actor.
