HELLO, CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH SOME INFORMATION OF THE PEARSE FAMILY NAME IN THE GLOUCESTER/OXFORDSHIRE AREA CIRCA 1800'S. i AM LOOKING SPECIFICALLY FOR INFORMATION OF MY GREAT GRANDFATHER ARTHUR DANIEL MALPUS PEARSE OF CHURCHILL. HE MOVED TO WALES, NAMELY TO THE GARW VALLEY, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHEN. i HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT HE WORKED ON THE RAILWAY,AS A GUARDAND LATER WAS PART OF THE TEAM THAT LAID THE ORIGIONAL SEWERS IN THE GARW VALLEY. ALSO, I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION OF HIS WIFE, CLARA PRATLEY, WHO WAS IN SERVICE IN GLOUCESTER (OR LOCAL AREA), AND MOVED TO WALES WITH ARTHUR, WHEN THEY WERE MARRIED IN BRIDGEND IN 1899. sHE WAS FROM THE VILLAGE OF FIFIELD GLOUCESTER,AND I KNOW THAT HER MOTHER WAS ALSO NAMED CLARA PRATLEY WAS A BUTTER MAKER IN THAT AREA AND HAD SOME CONNECTION WITH AN ARMY OFFICER, AND POSSIBLY A CONNECTION WITH THE BEECHER FAMILY,AFTER WHOM THE FAMOUS BEECHERS BROOK HORSE RACING JUMP WAS NAMED.
THE ONLY OTHER INFORMATION I HAVE, IS THE ARTHUR ALSO HAD A BROTHER WHO CAME TO WALES, WHO SETTLED IN SWANSEA AND WAS A SHOPKEEPER THERE BUT I HAVE NO INFORMATION OF THE PREMISES, AND THAT THIER FATHER WAS THE LOCAL UNDERTAKER, PRESUMABLY IN THE VILLAGE OF CHURCHILL. i WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR ANY ASISSTANCE.
