Some if the dates may be wrong as I obtained them from Vital Statistics and had to estimate by names and dates, whether they may be correct.

I am looking for history in England on Thomas Pearse, the Cornishman. I know he married his wife in England and had their first child, Alice ther. He came with his brother (name unknown) to the US in 1888(?) where they earned money singin in saloons. He then made his way across and ended up in Union, Vancouver Island. I know a bit about the descendants, etc, but does anyone have any connections with info on his family in England. Does anyone know his wife's maiden name? I know she was the midwife and a trained nurse.
