Pryse emigrated in 1774 from Scotland to Philadelphia. Pryse and Margaret met on board their ship and were married in 1774. In the year after they moved from Philadelphia to New York’s Cherry Valley what would later be Harpersfield in Delaware County southwest of Albany where their first two children were born. After the November 11, 1778 Cherry Valley Massacre by British Loyalists and Indians, Pryse and Margaret’s family fled to Albany County to seek refuge with the Dutch patroon Stephen Van Rensselaer. During the 1780s, their family lived in and near Albany. On October 2, 1787 they settled in Rensselaerville when Pryse leased land from Van Rensselaer. Pryse was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Albany in 1785. The family lived in Rensselaerville in the 1790, 1800 and 1810 Censuses. During Pryse and Margaret's later years they retired. They resided in Westerlo in the 1820 Census. Margaret died in 1820 at the age of 66 years. Pryse lived in Rensselaerville with his daughter Margaret’s family in the 1830 Census. Two years later, Pryse died in 1832 in his 94th year. “Pryse Campbell of the Town of Westerlo” dated his will September 28, 1832 two months before he died and his will was proved two months after he died on January 28, 1833.
