William Smale Prier died in 1891

so, he was the father of Eliza - 2 to go


... by ngairedith on 2012-02-07 05:59:26
these are the PRIER children born in NZ as they appear on BDM from earliest recorded to last of William Smale:
I also added Mary Jane on the strength of what jan said above
..(death dates are my additions)

1857 - Prier, Unnamed Male
- nothing known
1858 - 1935 Prier, Mary Jane
- Mary married Henry Lewer (1856-1918) in 1880
1860 - 1865 Prier, Sophia
- Sophia died aged 5
1862 - 1910 Prier, Elizabeth
- Elizabeth married Charles Lewer (1859-1925) in 1884
1864 - ? Prier, Thomas John
- Thomas married Kate Woodman (1869-1936) in 1894
1867 - 1947 Prier, Eliza
- Eliza married William Alfred Spicer in 1892
1868 - 1949 Prier, Henry James
- Henry married Sarah Woodman
1870 - 1915 Prier, Ada
- married Thomas Spicer in 1893
1871 - 1920 Prier, Grace Emma

1875 - 1934 Prier, Edgar - Susannah & William Smale
- Edgar married Alice Davis in 1899
1878 - 1878 Prier, Arthur - Susannah & William Smale
- Arthur died aged 1 week


if you look at that list, Eliza is the 3rd daughter, as mentioned in the marriage notice of 1892, since sister Sophia died in 1865
of course this doesn't apply IF they had others outside NZ

PLUS
- 2 Lewer siblings ?
- 2 Woodman siblings ?
- 3 Spicer siblings ?

hope this extra info helps someone to identify

HENRY LEWER (1856-1918) & MARY JANE PRIER (1858-1925)

written by great grandchild Rex LEWER
Our Henry LEWER born 1856 had the nickname of "IRON JAW HARRY." Legend has it that he used to participate in show fighting that took place in the Palmerston North Opera House. Presumably as a challenger to professional fighters.
When he was 24 he married Mary-Jane PRIER at the Wellington Registry Office on the 7th April 1880. Witnesses were Jane's father William PRIER, (her mother was Susannah nee BIRD). The other witness was Emma (?) LEWER. The (?) could be Mary - must have been Henry's sister rather than his mother. Henry's brother Charles married Jane's sister Elizabeth PRIER at almost the same time.
They had the usual large family. The first birth registered was for Henry Charles born 5th Jan 1881 at Ohariu with grandfather William PRIER as the informant.
It appears that by the mid 1880's Henry had moved via Foxton (port) to the Manawatu area as a daughter Ethel Grace was born in Palmerston North 15th March 1884.
Henry worked during his active years in the Timber Industry e.g. McGREGOR'S Mill in Orangiponga so this and places like Ohingaiti, Hunterville, Linton figure as the places his children grew up in. There is also the rumour that he spent time clearing the bush from land he bought for re-sale when cleared.
Henry died at aged 62 on the 15th Dec 1918 at Pahiatua where he was a nightwatchman and Mary-Jane died aged 66 on the 21st July 1925 at Porirua.
