William Henry Price Presteigne Radnorshire
« on: Tuesday 18 March 14 22:07 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone throw any light on William Henry Price born I think in 1873 in Presteigne.  At some stage he emigrated to New Zealand and married a Selina Priest in 1898.  Wondering when he died and if they had any children, and who were his parents and where did they live.  Thanking anyone in anticipation.

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

If he was born in Presteigne - his birth would have been registered in the Preseigne Registration District (RD) - but no entry on freebmd  www.freebmd.org.uk/

Unfortunately - failure to register a birth only became a fineable offence in 1874/75 so many births went unregistered.

He may have been born in an area near to Presteigne but one which fell in another RD

I can only find one William H Price entry on the 1881 but without knowing his parents/siblings it's difficul to say if it's the right one

Have you got his marriage certificate? That would give his father's name and it would be easier to look for his birth in Radnorshire.
