Pearson family
« on: Friday 14 May 10 02:33 BST (UK) »
I am researching the family of John and Mary Pearson (nee Deavis) who lived at Askham, Westmoreland.  Their children Thomas, John,  Matthew, Richard, Robert, Sarah (m. James William Lugsdin in Australia 1869) and Jane (married Thomas Fletcher) all emigrated to Victoria, Australia c. 1860 - 1870.
 A number of siblings remained at home, including one other son James, and daughters Margaret Mary and Barbara.  We have some family information, but conflicting details particularly in relation to Mary.  Was there a sister Mary, who lived to old age?  Our information is that the Mary on our list died as a baby in 1835.
I would love to find out more details about the siblings who remained at home, who they married and who their families were? 
Some Australian relatives visited in 1928 and we have photos of Fannie (daughter of James) Nellie and Pollie Pearson.  Also Aunt Mary who was quite elderly at that time and had a likeness to Sarah and Jane.
There is a Lacklison (Lackliason) relationship.
I would also like to check the years that the known siblings were born, and if there were any others. My list is as follows:
Thomas 1827, Margaret 1829, John 1831, Matthew 1833, Mary 1835, James and Richard (1837 - did this James die as a baby?) Barbara 1839, Robert 1842, William 1845, Sarah 1847, James 1850 and Jane 1852. 
Can anyone help me please?

According to the IGI there were 13 children christened at Askham to John and Mary Peason and the year of their christenings match your dates.  Mary's death is recorded as 27 November 1835.  There is a christening in Askham of a Mary, 21 August 1853, mother Margaret Pearson.  Is this your missing Mary?

Many thanks for your reply to my message, I have been very lucky to find willing helpers!
I am reading through your research and will quote as I go through.
1. Mary born 1853 is our Mary, daughter of Margaret Pearson.  We are now assuming that this Mary is the only child Margaret had, there are no more on any of the census', however in a letter from her father to sister Sarah, he mentions Margaret and the little ones in 1874 - assume he is talking about someone else.
2. The 3 other couples registered at Askham - are they related to John Pearson do you think?  There seem to be hundreds of Pearsons! I think the Uncle Richard referred to later is his brother, both born Great Strickland Westmorland?
3. 1901 Reference to Robert Lacklison - he is not a child of John and Mary Lacklison is he?  There have been a couple of mentions of Robert, and going to Canada and joining the Canadian Army.  Robinson was possibly called Bob, and we have a photo of him, have found his death in England, so presume he stayed in England, but visited Australia at some stage.  I cant tie Robert into this family - any clues?
4. Who is John I. Lacklison - 1901 census 21 years old
5. Yes, our John Pearson died 1876, wife Mary died before him, January 1875, both at Askham
6. 1891 census James Pearson is only son of John and Mary to remain in England.  4 children correct. His son James emigrated to America, the other 3 stayed in England. I would love to know when Mary E. died.  Her father James died in 1919, and she was very sick around this time.
I think we have Barbara sorted out, married William Taylor 1870, had illegitimate daughter Sarah 5 years earlier, who married a Mounsey (same name as Thomas was with in 1851)

I have found where Thomas Pearson married in England in 1955 to Alice Barrow, before they emigrated.  Had a daughter Mary born 1857.  Also a son John, and I cant find him anywhere there, or here.  Born by 1861.
 
Looking at shipping and we have worked out Sarah and William 1864 on the Tudor, Jane on the Hydrabad 1869, Robert and Richard with a number of Pearsons, including an Alice and infant Mary in 1860, and 2 Johns - Sov of the Seas.  Wondering if one is son John, and one brother John, with incorrect ages, or is it brothers John and Thomas, incorrectly named, and ages.  Alice's age is a few years out, not unusual?  A Mathew is listed in 1857 and Thomas 1858 and 1859 I think it was.  Did Thomas come out and then send for his wife and child (children) or was it him on the boat, Sovereign of the Seas 1860?
All brothers with exception of Thomas either married in Australia or didnt marry at all. Death certificates for the Pearson brothers indicate they emigrated between 1858 and 1860.
Many thanks again for your help
