Many thanks for your message.I’m so pleased your contacted me.Please accept my apologies for such a delay in me replying.Only noticed your message yesterday so something must have gone wrong with my in-tray.
Frederick Augustus Piears (1848 – 1928) was my g.grandfather – his son, James Richard Piears (1882 – 1940) was my grandfather and my mother was Zela Frances Piears (1914-1977).I was born in 1954.
Frederick Augustus Piears’ father was Frederick Piears (1820 – 1897), and Frederick’s father was William Piears (c.1765 – 1827).
I knew of Sarah Harriett Piears (b.1852) and her husband, Thomas Went (b.1853), but have never researched their descendants.However Sarah’s father was Frederick Piears (1820 – 1897) and not Frederick Augustus Piears (1848 – 1928).Therefore Sarah and Frederick Augustus were brother and sister, and Frederick was your g.g.g.grandfather, i.e. Frederick Augustus Piears isn’t in your direct line back.
I’d be most interested to know the names of those in your direct line back to Sarah and Thomas Went.
How you come across any tales about the Piears family or uncovered anything about the family during your research?
