It is my belief that he was born in Paignton about 1790 but have not been able to find any baptism records for him or anything related to his parents.
What I do know for certain is that he married Jane Drew on 14 July 1812 in St John the Baptist Parish Church.
Richard and Jane had 9 children all born in Paignton except for one son who was born in Dartmouth,
One son, Charles (1826 – 1896) moved to Barrow in Furness.
It is possible that the original surname may not have been “Priss” but a variant such as “Price”; “Preiss”; “Priess” or even “Priest”
Is anyone able to help solve this problem?
Thanks in advance
