Hi elaines,
I have a Priscilla Bray in my family tree, born 1804 at Totenhill Lynn Norfolk, married Richard Henry Strange 10 May 1829 at St Pancras. They had seven children and Priscilla died September 1876 at Shoreditch London.
If this is the same Priscilla please contact me.

Kind regrads,
T Dog.

I think that is her, thank you so much, unusual christian name and she definitely married into the Strange family at St Pancras.  I am a direct descendant from her.  What is your link?

again thank you for posting a reply.

T Dog - i think Priscilla is my g g g grandmother too, through the Strange family - Susan Strange

Trish - I haven't any of that information youve provided, thanks, though I must admit I haven't looked at my family tree for a few years now.

I don't have Susan Strange in my tree.
My records show Richard Henry Strange and Priscilla Bray had 7 children;
Richard Henry 1831, Frederick 1836, William 1838, Maria 1839, John 1842, Eliza and Henry both born 1847.

Is Susan an other daughter of Richard and Priscilla?

Susan Strange (b. 1874) is the daughter of John Strange (b. 1842).  John's parents were Priscilla Bray and Richard Strange and this is the line of my ancestors.
