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 reached a membership of around 40 worldwide. The newsletter is no longer issued, but back numbers are available.
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.
