- Born: 1844, Longtown, Herefordshire
- Marriage: Elizabeth POWELL
Possibly a relation of Elizabeths mother who was nee Pritchard.
1851 Census (age 6) is living at Orchard Cottage, Longtown with parents and 5 siblings.
1861 Census (age 15) is living at Fir Tree Cottage, Longtown, Herefordshire with parents and 4 siblings. Occupation; Stone mason (same as father). There are some more Pritchard's in the house next door.
1871 Census (age 26) is living at 'Cottage', Longtown, Herefordshire with mother, siblings etc. Occupation; Mason. Immediately below him on census is Sarah Pritchard, 25, born in Gloucester, who is described as 'Dau-in-law' (to head of house) - so possibly she is a first wife to William ? I have checked '81 and there is no William Pritchard of correct age married to a Sarah. William and Sarah are only people in house who are married, also there are to grandchildren - Agnes and John (both 9) so possibly these are their children?
1881 Census (age 40?) is living as head at Lower House, Longtown, Herefordshire with wife, son, mother-in-law and niece (Jane) and farm servant - Thomas Parry. Occupation; Farmer of 80(or 40 - hard to read) acres.
1891 Census (age 47) is living with wife and brother-in-law (Augustine) at Lower House, Longtown, Herefordshire. Occupation; Farmer. Where's son Allen ?
1901 Census (age 59) is living with wife at Lower House, Longtown, Herefordshire. Occupation; Farmer.
Several possibilities for his death in Herefordshire.
William married Elizabeth POWELL, daughter of George# POWELL and Elizabeth PRITCHARD. (Elizabeth POWELL was born in 1837 in Ewyas Harold, Herefordshire.)
