Many thanks indeed for kindly letting me have your email address. It was great in having the opportunity in being able to talk with you on the telephone, this morning New Zealand time, Sunday, 26th. November, with reference to my extreme interest in the name Henry Joseph PRICE, born c1830 in Wervin, Cheshire. The enclosed photo I'm attaching with this e-mail was said by my late mother, to have been her father, of whom, I've been researching for at least the last 40 years.He married Martha Jane BUTTERTON, in Salford, in 1876. and lived 57, Worsley Street, Manchester. His occupation in the 1881 census, show him as a Joiner. According to my research details he moved to Birkenhead, and owned a dwelling at 50, George St .near Hamilton Square, Other information I have, show him as a Shipwright, then back to Joiner. He has also appeared as a Carpenter, and in the 1891 census he was a Dockworker. He died in September,1905 aged 76. in Birkenhead. Unfortunately, within a month prior to his death, there was another Henry Joseph PRICE, age 43, who died in August, in Chester. This created for me a real problem as to whom, would be my correct candidate but, as time went by, I had a stoke of luck, I came upon some information I remembered my mother saying that her dad, was proud of the fact he had a relative in the Coldstream Guards, which I have since established was his Nephew. I was also, able to confirm that after his Uncle died the Nephew, was for a time at the dwelling owned by his uncle, listed as being at 50, George St., Birkenhead, thus one stone wall knocked down. The Coldstream Guard, had the same names only the other way round, Joseph Henry PRICE, born in Middleton, 1860. The only clue I'm hoping for now is the identification of the photograph , and a confirmation of the buttonhole emblem. And hopefully, with a little more luck I may then have some chance of meeting up with a PRICE, relative. I have enclosed as an attachment a photograph of him, showing the small piece of White material in the buttonhole of his jacket. which, I have been told is the emblem of the Temperance League. Who knows ? It has sincerely been my luckiest strike so far, having the good fortune in finding the Runcorn Temperance Website. It's the only direct contact I've had in all the many years of trying to obtain information about the importance of the Temperance movment, and to think perhaps, just how close it may yet be more or less, on the door-step of my Henry Joseph PRICE. Also, interesting to hear that there's still a possibility of a Temperance, list of Members. which would be great news if Henry's name shows up.
