Pringle Taylor was the son of Cyrus and Mrs. Taylor, and the brother of Esme and Trix.


Early lifeEdit

Pringle was born in Summerside to Cyrus Taylor and his wife, probably in late 1873 or early 1874.

Engagement of Esme and Lennox CarterEdit

In February 1888, Dr. Lennox Carter was invited for a supper to Taylor house, because he fell in love with his sister Esme. Pringle's second sister Trix visited Windy Poplars and told Anne Shirley about troubles with their father. She was afraid that her father had one of his spells on. She invited Anne for a supper and hoped for her help.

Anne came the next day to Taylor house. Cyrus was in a dreadful humour, because Hugh Pringle beat him at a game of checkers that afternoon. Dr. Carter came, but they all were silent. Then Anne ot a great idea. She told Lennox that Cyrus Taylor went deaf very suddenly last week.

"What would you think of a man who would give his wife a pair of goloshes for a Christmas present... nothing but a pair of goloshes?"
—Pringle to Lennox Carter.

Trix and Pringle asked Lennox what he thought about man who refused to let his wife have a dog, gave his wife a pair of goloshes for a Christmas present or believed the earth was flat. He thought they were talking about their father. When Mrs. Taylor accused him of chochet, he exploded and apologized. Esme and Dr. Carter were engaged

"Pringle, ordinarily a fat, cheerful urchin of fourteen, with round eyes and glasses and hair so fair it looked almost white, looked like a tied dog."
Anne of Windy Poplars, Chapter 11, The First Year[src]
