Pryce & Thickens in Newtown
« on: Wednesday 04 May 05 15:02 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find out more about the families of Richard Pryce b.1827-1829 in Newtown and his wife Elizabeth Thickens(Thickins or Thickings) b. 1827 -1829 in Newtown. Their son Richard Pryce b. 30 June 1844 also born in Newtown went to America sometime around 1874 (Birthdate is based on information from death record in Massachusetts). Would be grateful for any help. Thanks, Crys

Thank you for the welcome and the information. I found Richard Pryce, the younger with wife Sarah and children in the 1871 census in Newtown and the 1880 U.S. census in Massachusetts. I was hoping I could trace the line back further but I think I may be at a loss, especially when it comes to the Thickens line.
Thank you again,
Crys

Thank you so very much for your help. In the U.S. census records Richard's (the younger) family did go back and fourth using Price one time and then Pryce the next. Which does make things difficult at times.  Thank you again.  :)
