Margaret Pearson

Margaret Pearson is the great granddaughter of John Thomas Pearson, the son of George and Esther Pearson.

Margaret, who now lives in Australia, contacted the WMHBT in 2015. She kindly sent copies of these documents which her mother had given to her.

Margaret's mother also had a gold watch which was presented by Harris and Pearson to Wiliam Pearson (son of George Pearson and his second wife) on his 21st Birthday. The watch has been passed to another member of the family.
