I've just come across your 2004 message whilst looking for information relating to Edward Chard Pearse. I'm researching Edward's son Herbert Thomas Pearse b. 1887.I believe Herbert may have married my great aunt Bessie Jane Mitchell b. 1889 Westminster, London at Bristol in 1915. Her father was Frederick Mitchell a master cabinetmaker of Truro, Cornwall and her mother Mary Jane Palmer of Linkinhorne, Liskeard, Cornwall. Does any of this information link into your Pearse family tree? I would love to know if they had children. I look forward to hearing from you even if its just to eliminate him from my inquiries.
