I am trying to find ancestors of Edward Pearse/Pearce who was born 26 April 1871 in Safron Walden, Essex, UK. He was in the British Navy and was awarded the 1814/15 Star, British War and Victory Medals. We have record of him going to Australia in 1901. His father was also Edward Pearse/Pearce (Chemist/Medical Dispenser) and Edward Sr's father was James Pearse, who was also in the Navy. Siblings of Edward Jr. were Amy Catherine, William Francis, Edith Jane, Joseph George, Eleanor, Jessie, Agnes Eliza & Walter.
