Dear Michael and Penny,

Thank you so much. The information was very helpful. My family has a Jones – Price – Seys connection which I’ve been trying to unravel.

My great grandmother Jones had a Price relative (Auntie Price). Interestingly, this grandmother lived at one point in Pont ar Dylas = Bridge on the River Dylas (which I think is the same as Pontardulais) where your Richard Seys Price lived ten years later (1841 vs 1851.)

We also appear to have a Seys connection: I found some old pages of typed transcripts of wills of Elizabeth and Richard Seys in my father’s papers. I think it may be from the will of Richard Seys born about 1651 who was married to Wenllian. It begins “I Richard Seys of Boverton” and mentions his son Evan and his daughter Elizabeth, cousin Edward Sey’s youngest son William Seys of Swanzey, cozen Charles Seys’ eldest son William Seys, and friends Sir Edmond Thomas of Wenvoe, Glamorgan. Baronnette Francis Wyndham of Clover Wall, Gloucester and Edward Jenkins of Llandough juxta Cowbridge, Glamorgan. I would like to compare these papers with a known copy of his will but am not sure how to locate wills. Do you know?

Do you have more information on the case in Chancery by Lewis Price? I also need to know how one goes about finding cases in Chancery. I am trying to locate a case where the Jones (or Seys or Price) family tried to reclaim a property lost for 100 years because of gambling.

I appreciate any additional help you can give me.

Margaret
