In Reply to: Purse name origin by Daniel Purse of 90

The story I have always heard was that the name was changed when the Purse family immigrated to the US. The original name was Purser or Pruse. Unfortunatley, my fathers (Robert Frank Purse) father (Frank Purse) was killed in a motor cycle accident when my Dad was only 4 years old and his Mother did know more details so none were confirmed to us.
