Looking for the birth of a William Henry PRIOR abt 1846 - parents William & Matilda.

NSW Marriage 4194/1873 PRIOR WILLIAM HENRY - HEARD SELINA ANNE - WELLINGTON

NSW Death 15678/1918 PRIOR WILLIAM H - WILLIAM - MATILDA - CHATSWOOD

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 10 October 1918 p.6
DEATHS
PRIOR.-October 8, 1918, at Royal North Shore Hospital, William Henry Prior, aged 72 years.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 10 October 1918 p.5
FUNERALS
PRIOR.-The Funeral of the late Mr. WILLIAM HENRY PRIOR will leave his late residence, Trewinnia, Broughton-road, Artarmon, THIS (Thursday) MORNING, at 10.15 o'clock, for Church of England Cemetery, Gore Hill.

Is the name of his residence a clue?

William Henry was uncle to these:

NSW Marriages
1015/1894 WALKER WILLIAM J - GREENAWAY EDITH A - SYDNEY
5451/1901 STUBBING GEORGE R - GREENAWAY EMILY L - SYDNEY

So was Matilda's maiden name GREENAWAY?

I can't see Edith or Emily - oh! next generation. They must be children of ...

V18381439 23A/1838 GREENAWAY SARAH S GEORGE CHARLOTTE
V18432108 27A/1843 GREENAWAY GEORGE GEORGE CHARLOTTE
V18452703 31A/1845 GREENAWAY MATILDA GEORGE CHARLOTTE
V18541060 44A/1854 GREENAWAY ANN GEORGE CHARLOTTE


Births
0414/1875 GREENAWAY EMILY LAVINIA - JAMES - MARY - SYDNEY
1397/1876 GREENAWAY EDITH ADELAIDE - JAMES - MARY - SYDNEY

Thanks Geoff. :)

I'm still lost in the four generations. That Matilda is not old enough. Wrong generation. The Matilda we are after has to be old enough to be mother of WH born abt 1846.

Looking for WH born abt 1846 - parents William & Matilda.

NSW Death 7937/1910 GREENAWAY MARY - WILLIAM - MATILDA - SYDNEY

Ok, a sister of WH. So he fits as the uncle of Edith & Emily.


GREENAWAY Mary Death notice 03AUG1910 Death 63 late of Darlinghurst Sydney Morning Herald 04AUG1910

So born abt 1847.

So we are left with a WH b. abt 1846 and Mary b. abt 1847 - parents William & Matilda according to both death reg. and no sign in NSW.

And no death in NSW for Matilda as PRIOR.


104/1868 FOX MICHAEL - PRIOR MATILDA - SYDNEY

Deaths
V18551280 43A/1855 PRIOR WILLIAM AGE 75
792/1858 PRIOR WILLIAM H - JOHN W - ANN - SYDNEY
4164/1860 PRIOR WILLIAM - WILLIAM - EMMA - KIAMA

10593/1916 FOX MATILDA - WILLIAM - MATILDA - REDFERN

FOX Matilda Death notice 16SEP1916 Death 65 late of Waterloo Sydney Morning Herald 18SEP1916

Not old enough.

So we are left with no death in NSW for Matilda.

Her last child in 1873?

That could mean WH & Mary are named after their mother. And probably the Matilda born abt 1853 who married FOX.
