My name is Alejandro José Díaz Vásquez,
I born in Santiago Chile. My grandmother was Elsie Price b1899
in Enfield, MiddleSex, England her parents was George Henry Price
b1872-1875 Kentish Town, London, England (1901 Census, but other
census place he on other birthplace) and Edith Gould b1872 North
Elmham, Norfolk, England and her parents was James Gould b1833
Bintry, Norfolk, England and Martha Shirley b1831 Hindolvestone,
I'm very interested in make contact to Delina Price, because
of their records she become my cousin.
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
I RECEIVED THIS EMAIL TODAY AND UNFORTUNATELY,
I DO NOT HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS FOR DELINA PRICE WHO SENT THE
EMAIL BELOW. IF YOU KNOW OF DELINA OR IF SHE READS THIS
POSTING, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ALEJANDRO. I LOST ALL
EMAIL ADDRESS, ETC. WHEN OUR COMPUTER CRASHED AFTER THE 2002
Thank you, Betty Shirley

Info from: DELINA PRICE
My grandfather Victor George PRICE was born in 1906 to the
parents of Edith GOULD and George Henry PRICE. They married in
1894 at the age of 21. George Henry was born in 1872 and his
parents remain elusive. Edith GOULD was born in 1872 in North
Elmham, Norfolk, England, to the parents of James (known as Harry)
GOULD and Martha SHIRLEY. Harry was born in 1833 in Bintry/ Bintree,
Norfolk, England. He was the son of James GOULD (b1797, parents
Nicholas and Sarah GOULD) and Charlotte NOBES b 1799, they had
Martha SHIRLEY was born 3rd May 1831 in Hindolvestone, Norfolk,
England, to Francis SHIRLEY b 1802 and Sarah BALLS b 1805, they
married in 1821. According to an IGI record by 1840 Francis SHIRLEY
had remarried, to Eliza HART and emigrated in 1848 to New Zealand,
HOWEVER... I have a copy of the 1851 census for Hindolvestone,
Norfolk, England and Francis SHIRLEY was registered here with
his wife Sarah and 4 of their 10 children, including a new name
Rebecca SHIRLEY b 1844.
This is as far as I have got. Other bits of information that
have passed through the family are:
Edith was sent to London to learn dressmaking. Her father,
James(Harry) GOULD, was a carpenter. Her mother, Martha SHIRLEY,
was a servant. Martha's father, Francis SHIRLEY, was a Glover.
Their is a story of Martha's father, Francis SHIRLEY, remarrying,
hence the other marriage. But then the dates do not add up.
So in my quest for knowledge I am now researching PRICE London
and Enfield areas, GOULD, NOBES, BALLS and SHIRLEY Norfolk areas.
I will continue to add to this information and will add the siblings
of each family at a later date.
I hope that my information will help you or hopefully, someone,
somewhere, will make a connection.
Nov 8th, 2000, Roger Shirley sent the following email....
I have just read Delina's email to you concerning the Norfolk
Shirley's. The Francis SHIRLEY that Delina mentions married Eliza
HART in Bedford, Bedford England on the 13th Oct 1840.
On the 5th March 1848 they are among the passengers on the
"Victory" that arrived in Port Chalmers, Dunedin, New
Zealand and are accompanied by there daughter Margaret Frances
SHIRLEY and also another family by the name of GIBBS who were
cousins of Francis SHIRLEY.
In August 1849 Francis & Eliza have a son, William Otago
SHIRLEY. The birth certificate (I have a copy) states Francis
occupation as "Shoemaker"
The next mention I have of this family is in 1878 where the
son William Otago SHIRLEY is married to Jane H THOMAS in New
South Wales, Australia. It appears the whole family moved from
New Zealand to Australia. Francis SHIRLEY died in NSW in 1884
being 72years old and his daughter Margaret died in 1909 having
not married. (her brother William O also died the same year)
William O and Jane went on to have 4 boys - Francis L T, William
R, Percy W and Alfred H G. So far have only found one marriage
that being of William R. Francis L T died when 20 years old and
I have not found anything on Alfred or Percy who could have moved
to other Australian states.
Hope this information will be of some help to Delina.
