Born to a British family in Barbados on 5 June 1878, he was educated privately and emigrated to Manitoba in 1896, where he worked as a financial agent at Selkirk. On 2 September 1914, he married Emma Evans McKinley (?-?), daughter of John D. H. McKinley of Dresden, Ohio. They had a daughter, Alice Marion Prout (?-?). He stood for election in the provincial election of 1914, being defeated by Walter H. Montague, by three votes. In 1915, he was elected as a Liberal representative for the constituency of Kildonan-St. Andrews. He ran in the 1920 and 1927 general elections but was defeated each time. He died in Toronto, about 1980.
