I too are searching Pritchard.  I don't have much to go on, but I do have a Thomas Pritchard and children Rowland Robert (1887) and John Thomas.  My ancestors come from the Donnington Wood area.  I know it is not much to go on, but I thought you might pick up on the names.

My gggg-grandfather married a pritchard and so did my Uncle. I haven't looked into it yet, but have wondered if they are distant relations ;D

An update - the Pritchard in question is Ann Pritchards born most likely 1780's

Got back to mid 1800's with my aunt's Pritchard line (to Henry Pritchard in Staffs), and found a couple of ancestry public trees connecting the two Pritchards, I just need to see if I can prove the evidence myself :)

So if after 1851 he's not in that household. Maybe he married, and possibly had a child

Jane Pritchard bapt at Wellington, Christ Church on 16 Dec 1855 parents Enock & Mary Pritchard of Watling Street

I too have Pritchards from Wellington. Henry Joseph Pritchard was b. 1816, Bank, Wellington - I have his descendants and his wife's family (Gill, Spittle), but have been fighting to get further back.

Henry's father was John Pritchard and I believe his mother was Adelaide Aston (marr Wellington 1814), appearing in various records - I think - as Adey, Addey, possibly Edy and on one record, seemingly, Hadegum (?). They seem to have resided at Coal Pit Bank.

John Pritchard, if I've got the right one, was b. 1791'ish in Wrockwardine. He appears in census returns married to a Sarah (b.1794) - and I'm actually starting to wonder if this is Adey rather than a second marriage. Though why she'd become Sarah, I don't know - I could be totally wrong!

Children of John and Adey Pritchard  include: Salome (1815), Henry Joseph (1816), Susannah (1819), John (1822 - marr Emma Clayton?), Prudence (1823-1825).

Other Coal Pit Bank Pritchards include: Ann (1819-1821), Edward (d.1824), Eliza (1822-1828) Maria, Rebecca, Steven; also Edey (1803-1827), Harriet (1826, dau. of Ann Pritchard).

Adey/Edy - if the same person - may be the daughter of Stephen and Rose Aston, b.1794 (they also had a Salome, b.1785).

Any of these names tie in with anyone else's info?

Thank you, best - Garen
