Looking for imformation on Peter Pruden in Edmonton, Middlesex, England

John Peter Pruden was born in Edmonton, Middlesex, England on May 28, 1778, his parents were Peter Pruden born 1752 and Margaret Fraser born 1756. They were married in Edmonton, Middlesex, England in 1777.

John Peter Pruden came to Canada on the HMS Seahorse 111 as an Apprentice to the Hudson Bay Company when he was 13 years old.

I have an extensive genealogy of him and the family from the time he came to Canada but I do not know very much about his family in England and if anyone has any knowledge of Peter Pruden born in 1752, it would be great to hear from you.

John Peter Pruden had a sister named Christian Pruden who married Edward Harriott and one of their sons came to Canada as an Apprentice as well. The rest of Christian's family stayed in England.
