William Prichard was the head of one of the original planter families of Brookfield, Massachusetts. He was served as a Second Sergeant in King Philip's War. He was killed in the Ambush at Braintree.
It is thought that all Prichards living in America are descendants from William. His lineage can be traced back to Welsh Nobility.
