Thomas William H Pearse was my great-great-grandfather. His daughter, Rose married Albert Malcolm Wain 1919. Her husband died a few weeks after marriage, but she soon found out she was expecting my Grandfather, Albert Wain. Albert's daughter, Joan Wain is my mother. I didn't know the rest of the family very well. I used to visit my Aunty Mary (Thompson) in Langford when I was little, and I visited my Aunty Rach (King) in Union Bay until I was a teenager. I remember two of the brothers were nicknamed "Bush" and "Bow" but I don't remember which ones. (My grandfather will probably know and I am planning to visit him this Christmas. I wanted to bring him as much info as I can gather and hopefully his memory will help fill in some blanks.)
Which of the children are you descended from? Your name sounds vaguely familiar to me, but I may just be experiencing deja-vu.
Do you have any information on Thomas and Mary's ancestors or history in England. Do you know the name of the brother who immigrated with them? I've had no luck at all on the "free" web sites so far with the Pearses (eg. The Morman site, etc), although I have had some good luck on different branches of my family with these sights.
Do you live on Vancouver Island? I am in Victoria, but most of the rest of my family is in the Comox Valley.

Thanks for your response and the extra info on their names.

Season's Greetings!

Deborah McColeman
