Seed - Prichard family
« on: Sunday 30 August 20 15:02 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am researching my Preston Seed family and realised that family stories of Anglesey connections derive from the marriage of Matilda Seed from Preston to Richard Prichard in 1886. Matilda came to Anglesey as a teacher and is found boarding as a school mistress in Holyhead in 1881. 

I am curious as to how this girl from Preston came to be teaching in Holyhead. Any ideas?

A great nephew of Matilda's Robert Ward Seed died age 6 'suddenly' at the mountain, Holyhead in 1919.  I'd like to see if there is a newspaper report about this - does anyone know whether there were any English Language newspapers in the area?

The National Library of Wales has digitised and put on line Newspapers relating to Wales in Welsh and English up to 1919. https://newspapers.library.wales/
There are some references to Miss Seed attending various events.
