« on: Sunday 31 May 15 15:23 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for living relatives of Ann Bray Prior (B: 1832) and Thomas Pyror (B: 1834).  They
lived on Lower Centenary Row in Camborne Cornwall.

The OP is looking for living relatives, but it's a long way and a lot of generations since 1832.

If it was me, I'd try connecting to people on Ancestry/Genes Reunited etc who have either Ann or Thomas in their trees.

Always looking for GOODWINS in Berkshire :)

Many apologies, i was just making sure that these were the right family & then it could be traced down from there.

Hello-I am a descendant of Thomas Pryor/Ann Bray.  They were my great x 2 grandparents.  Their son, Joseph Pryor, was my great grandfather.  Joseph had a sister Mary Ann and a brother Thomas.  According to the information that I can find, Ann Bray Pryor came from Cornwall to the USA some time after son Thomas was born in 1866.  She re-married in New Jersey, and lived there until she passed in 1906.  I have been unable to find anything about Ann's first husband, Thomas.  The 1861 England census shows Thomas, Ann, Joseph and Mary Ann living in Redruth on Lower Centenary Row.  I can find no other information regarding Thomas.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
