Sir John Price of Porteham & The Priory at Brecknock (Herefordshire), Sheriff (b c1502, d 15.10.1555, MP) - continued above
m. (11.10.1534) Joan (b c1516, d by 1592, dau of John Williams alias Cromwell of Southwark by Johan Wykes)
1. Gregory Price of Hereford & The Priory, Sheriff, Mayor of Hereford (b 06.08.1535, d 19.03.1600, MP)
  Siddons, who has been recommended to us as being very reliable, shows that Gregory married twice (as shown) but identifies only one child, the daughter "and sole heire" Mary. However, Jones shows Gregory & Mary Coningsby as parents of the Thomas who m. Anne Rudhall whilst Visitation (1569) shows in italics, thereby indicating that it was added by the Harleian Editor (who identifies Duncomb's work on Herefordshire (vol 2, p131) as the source), Gregory & Mary as father of the John who m. Ann Chute. We follow Siddons in showing that Thomas and that John below.
  m1. (by 11.1559) Mary Coningsby (dau of Humphrey Coningsby of Hampton Court)
  m2. (by 1598) Grissel Roberts (dau of Walter Roberts of Glassenbury, widow of Gervase Gebons, m3. Sir John Poyntz)
  A. Mary Price
m. John Price of The Priory @1@ below
  partner(s) unknown
  B.+ 2 sons + 1 daughter
2. Richard Price of The Priory, Brecknock (Brecon) (b c1538, dsp before 04.02.1586/7)
  m. Elizabeth Wightman (dau/coheir of William Wightman of Harrow-on-the-Hill)
3. John Price of The Priory, Brecknock
m. Elizabeth Games (dau of John Games of Aberbrayn)
  Jones shows just one child for John & Elizabeth, a Thomas who married (no children shown). Siddons suggests that Jones confused the Thomases and shows as follows. HoP ("John Prise") supports this inasmuch that it identifies the 1st wife of the undermentioned John as daughter of his great-uncle Gregory.
  A. Thomas Price of The Priory (d 1654)
  m. Anne Rudhall (dau of William Rudhall of Rudhall, sister/coheir of John of Rudhall)
  i. John Price (Prise) of The Priory & Wistaston Coutt (Herefordshire) (b c1603, d 10.166, MP)
  m1. (by 1617) Mary Price (dau/heir of Gregory Price of Hereford) @1@ above
  a.+ issue (a 1634) - Anne (b c1621), Gresill (b c1623)
  m2. (1631) Anne Chute (b 1613, dau/heir of Sir George Chute of Stockwell & Wistaston by Margaret, dau/heir of Thomas Welford of Wistaston)
c. Thomas Price of Wistaston Court (Herefordshire) & Westminster (b c1633, d c1699)
  Siddons ends with Thomas "not a yeare old". The following comes from Jones, supported by data added by the Harleian Editor to Visitation (Herefordshire, 1569, 'Welford of Wistaston'), identifying Duncomb's work on Herefordshire (vol 2, p133) as the source, and by input from HoP ("John Price of Wistaston Court"). Jones shows both marriages but appears to indicate that both Diana & John were by Diana Wray. Visitation ('Welford') shows just one wife for Thomas, Diana Wray, shown as mother of John. However, HoP (which does not name Thomas's 1st wife) shows John as Thomas's son by his 2nd wife, Mary Carne.
  m1. Diana Wray (dau of Sir Christopher Wray of Lincolnshire)
  (1) Diana Price
  m. _ Button of Cotterell
  m2. Mary Carne (dau of Colonel Thomas Carne of Nash)
