The HEADSTONE UNVEILING was held at 11.00am on March 14th 2010 at the Heywood Cemetery. This represented the culmination of hard work over the past years to raise the funds to erect this headstone. This will help acknowledge the significance of the first Price settlers in Australia.




Descendants of Richard & Jane Price & their daughter
Mary Elizabeth, attended the unveiling of a new Headstone to mark their gravesite at the Heywood/Drumborg Cemetery on Sunday 14th March 2010.

Descendants of Richard and Jane gathered around the plaque at the Portland Immigration Wall


A successful reunion of the Price family was held on the 7th February 2009 at Portland, Victoria, Australia. At the Pioneer Immigration wall two senior family members - Mervyn Price (descendant of Riachard and Hannah) and Colin Price (descendant of William and Caroline) unveiled the plaque to commorate Jane and Richard's arrival in Australia in 1855. The plaque is located on the Pioneer Immigration wall that overlooks Portland bay where Richard and Jane would have originally disembarked for their first experience in Australia.
