Previous marriage for Priscilla?
« on: Tuesday 21 November 17 18:08 GMT (UK) »
Hi. A simple request I hope.

Thomas Price married Priscilla Silk on 1846 - Kidderminster.

Their children have CLIFT as mmn. Selina, Charles and Ann.

In the 1851 census she is 42 born in Sussex. She is a widow.

Have only found a Priscilla Clift bapt. 9 Oct 1814 in Chatham, Kent.

I assume there is a marriage out there between her and a Mr. Silk (unless she married again before Thomas??)

Phil

Is she shown as a widow on the 1846 marriage cert and what is her fathers name?

The 1841 has a Priscilla Silk living in Worcs but age is way out (15). Father appears to be Samuel.  Image is difficult to read

Are you sure that you have the right marriage. There is a marriage for a Priscilla Clift and a Thomas Price in 1828 at South Hamlet Gloucester.The older children on the 1851 census were born before 1846.

Liz is right.  Your Thomas & Priscilla are on the 1851 aged 30 and 25 with 8mth old dtr Hannah

Priscilla’s age matches the 1841 entry I mentioned earlier

The 1851 entry you refer to was for Gloucester

Phil

The children you mention from the 1851 entry were all b Gloucs.  Why did you associate the 1846 marriage in Worcs with that entry particularly as Selina and Charles were both born before 1846?

My point of interest is Charles Price, 6 in the census entry for 1851 with mother Priscilla, 42 and siblings Seline 8 and Ann 3.

I have come across a few illegitimacies recently and my mind set told me they had married after the children were born!

I just didn't think it would be way back in 1828 and I'm certain I don't come up with the right search results via Family Search.....

Priscilla married again in 1854 to Joseph Young, she gives her father's name as Samuel. She is living with her daughter Selina Hudson as her mother in law,her birthplace is given as Brighton, Sussex
