Hi everybody

I have just recently started looking into our family history and am trying to trace our Pearse line back to England. I often see mention of Richard Pearse (below) on Pearse web-sites but haven't found anyone who actually claims a link to him.

Current information as follows starting from the oldest link that I know of:

A. Digory Sargent Pearse b. June5 1844 (of South Petherwin, Launceston, Cornwall, England)
m.
Sarah Ann Brown (of Ireland) (no more information known)

children:
1. Richard William Pearse (b. Dec 3 1877, d.July 1953) - farmer/aviator, not married
2. Warne Pearse m. Phyllis Curtis, children Margaret, Jim, Richard
3. Florrie Pearse m. Higgins, no children } I met Ruth & Florrie twice in Auckland, NZ in 1972.
4. Ruth Pearse m. Ron Gilpin, no children } They both lived together and died ~92/95 years old
5. Maggie May Mary Pearse m. Charles John Galt (b. 1875) m. 1906, children below
6. Thomas Pearse
7. Nellie Pearse m. Jack ?
8. Annie Pearse m. William Smart, children Gladys 1909

B. Maggie May Mary Pearse m. Charles John Galt
children:
1. Howard Charles Curtis Galt b. 1908 d. 1987, bookshop owner, air navigator WWII, hypnotist, not married
(Howard was very close to Florrie & Ruth Pearse - he was my favourite uncle - very eccentric but sweet!)

3. twins b. 1912, died at birth


C. Gladys Ruth Galt m. Thomas Wesley Southam

3. Bruce Southam b. 1939 m. Marlene Proffitt - children Nigel & Marcus
4. Marion Judith Southam b. 1944 m. Alex Molnar - children Lisa, Julie, Maree & Craig
5. Kenneth David Southam b. 1946 m. Jackie Carrington - children David, Clinton


D. Hazel Gladys Southam m. Ronald Alexander Edward King
Hazel Gladys Southam re-married in 1980 to Raymond Edward O'Fee - no children
children of Hazel & Ron:
1. Cheryl-Anne King b. 1960 } m. Martin Schroder - children Stephanie & Herbert-Benjamin
2. Cherie Dawn King b. 1960 } m. Christopher Francis - children Alexandra (Sasha) & Jennifer
3. Natasha Jayne King b.1972 } m. David Bastion - children Christopher & Matthew
