Jane Stewart, William Price's wife, had an older sister called Henrietta Eleanor Stewart. In 1821, Henrietta married William Phillips, a Quebec City grain merchant. (His grandfather, John, had fought with Wolfe on the Plains of Abraham in 1759.)
A granddaughter of Henrietta and William, Henrietta Keane Bethune married Jane and William Price's second youngest son Edward George Price who moved to England in the 1869 and started what is today the English branch of the family.
Clara Plante was born on the Island of Orleans, east of Quebec City, in 1868. She studied at the Ursulines Convent in Quebec City. In 1883, Clara, her brothers Alfred and Albert, her sister Cedulie and her brother-in-law Fortunat Martineau left Quebec and became pioneers in the Dakota Territory. There Clara met and married Frank Finlay Phillips, Justice Court Judge, lawyer and former Indian agent. Frank was a grandson of Henrietta and William. Their son Wendell Alfred Langevin Phillips emigrated to New Zealand in 1919.
