My father came from England with his father William Prideaux Naish (born 1850) and brother. He died in 1913.
His parents were Arthur John Naish and Margaret Prideaux Paull. Arthur was born in Bath. They were married in Tavistock in 1847. It was always family lore that our tree dated back to 1066 at the time of the conquest.Pagan Prideaux having come from France with William the Conquerer. I do not have a birth date for him. The first date I do have is for a Richard Prideaux, Lord of Prideaux, who died 1122.
I know that my father's was related to the Fry family and were in the chocolate business together, my grandfather was a plantation overseer in Africa as a young man. The family sold out to Cadbury. (worst luck)
The name as you know is so rare. Hope to hear from you.
