It's possible you can't get the record on FreeBMD because they haven't
transcribed it yet; it's not complete, whereas 1837online is complete but
costs money to view. I just checked the charts at FreeBMD and the year 1857
for births is nowhere near complete.
You can still order the birth record for Priscilla from the GRO without
having the page number, you just can't do it online. You will need to print
out the form and mail it in, or call them. It does cost more for the record
without the full index details, but if in the end you can't read it and you
have no other option, at least you can still obtain the record.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [Dyfed] Thomas birth 1857, can't read 1837online not show FREEBMD
Hello: After reading through 1837 online I do find a birth for Priscilla
Thomas Oct - Dec quarter 1857 in Llandilofawr VOL 11a page 57?. I went to
England and Wales civil registration index 1837+ and the freebmd and
will give me any births for the period. The GRO says that for records
???? that the GRO number must be there. can anyone pull up the Freebmd
so I can get the complete number. I did try to leave blurred image
with 1837 and "ask" ancestry. have not questioned Freebmd.
Thank you very much, Cherie Lynn and David, in Maryland
