Origins of surname

This very English surname either originates in Welsh or French. If the former, it is a derivation of ap Rhys, son of Rhys the 'fiery warrior'. If French, it is from the word pris, which has the same meaning, and would have applied to an early trading standards officer, setting the price for goods after the Norman invasion.

Early records

Richard Price, of Guernsey, married Marie Quenaux at St Saviour in 1702. They do not appear to have had any children in Jersey. The first baptisms on record are for the children of Richard Price (presumably a different one) and Anne Roissier, in St Helier in 1729 and 1733.
