Surnames: Price, Pryce, Gorby, Gorbie
I have been searching for any early information on Charles (born circa 1814) and Mary Price. Mary's maiden name was Gorby. I have seen the following variations of the names as Pryce and Gorbie. I do know Charles and Mary came to Canada in the late 1830's from possibly Westmeath, Ireland. They resided in Renfrew County as early as the 1842 census. Their son to whom I am a decendant, Samuel Price, was born 1846 in Horton Twp, Renfrew Co. Mary died circa 1850 and Charles married a young woman named Eliza (Elizabeth) Payne in 1851. They moved most of the children to Hastings County and had several more themselves. Samuel married Susannah Van Allen in 1868 and they had a son named Benjamin Franklin Price. He eventually married a woman from Jones Twp., Renfrew County in 1896 in Eganville. Her name was Annie Isabelle Dunn daughter of William and Ann Dunn.

I would certainly appreciate any further information on the early days of the Price's in Renfrew County. As you can see I have very little.

Thank you, Sonyia Way.
