I may have a connection. My great grandmother was Hilda Priday (born 1886) eldest child to Samuel Priday and Clara Badhams. They lived in the old custom house in GLoucester. Hilda had a brother (Melville Priday)who emigrated to South Africa and was known as Mit to his family. If you are interested or you think we have a link I would be happy to swap information with you. I can take the Priday line back to about 1811 (with Hildas g grandfather Richard) but his wifes family goes back even further. Richard Priday wads married to Pamela Heaven (born around 1804 died 1906).
