Emily Blackhall said:

I am looking for a William Thomas Price born about 1868. He was married to a Eleanor Louisa Clayton (born about 1866). They were married in Kensington, Greater London in 1887. They had five children;

1. William Ernest “Ernie” Price born 1888
2. Private John Price born Oct 6 1889 in London died May 17 1917 in France
3. Florence May Price born May 1891 in London
4. Private Stanley Arthur Price born Dec 8 1894 in Bournemouth died Nov 10 1917 in Belgium
5. Charles Edward Price born 1901 in Bournemouth died Dec 3 1935 in Toronto, Canada

About 1907, the family emigrated to Canada. Their three oldest sons all volunteered to serve in WWI but Ernie was reject as he was “unfit to serve in the ranks.” John and Stanley both died in WWI.

Any more information would be welcomed. I would really appreciate information on Eleanor’s and/or William’s parents and any information on Florence and Ernie.


This family appears in the 1911 Canadian Census (automatedgenealogy.com)
Ontario/Toronto West/126 Toronto. The family appear as follows: Price – William Thomas, Elleanor Louisia, William Earnest, John, Florence May, Stanley Arthur and Charles Edward.
