The identity of this Member has not been established.

A John Price of Tre’r, Whitford, was escheator for Flintshire 1565-6, and an i.p.m. commissioner in that county in 1565. He was very probably the John ap Rhys ap David who was assessed for the subsidy in Whitford at 20s. between 1570 and 1598. As his name last appears on the subsidy roll in 1599, and was replaced by that of his heir, William ap John ap Rhys, in 1601, he presumably cannot have been the Member for the Boroughs in the October 1601 Parliament.1

A John Price, possibly his younger son, matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, aged 17, in 1596 and was buried at Whitford in 1656, but the identification of this John with the 1601 MP rests only upon his appropriate age and the lack of suitable alternatives.
