Price family in Presteigne
« on: Wednesday 08 September 04 20:07 BST (UK) »
Hi

Does anyone have an Evan Price in their family tree?(I know!!! probably most Welsh families) He was born around 1835 in Presteigne and his parents were John and Alice (I think).   He moved to England and married Jane Smith in 1856 in Staffordshire.

Can anyone help? ???

Taken from a transcription of the 1841 Census.

Hundred of Radnor
Parish of Presteigne
Reference: HO107:1457: ED 1 & 2. folio 16/page 25
PRICE, John,  75, Ag.Labourer., No, abode Hereford Street,
PRICE, Alice,  55,  Y, abode Hereford Street,
PRICE, Edward,  20,  Y, abode Hereford Street,
PRICE, Thomas,  20,  Y, abode Hereford Street,
PRICE, Evan,  6,  Y, abode Hereford Street,
Y = born in Radnorshire.
No = not born in Radnorshire.
Given the ages, might John and Alice be grandparents?

1851 Census Presteigne /folio479/page5

PRICE Alice, head, widow, 67, lab's wife, born  New Radnor, abode Hereford Street,
PRICE Edward, son, unmaried, 32, labourer, born New Radnor, abode Hereford Street,
