Dr Evan Pearce is my  5 times great grandfather.  As far as I know he had 6 children.   Evan jr, John, Robert , Henry, Mary and Caroline.       Evan(jr) Had 1 son.    Robert had 2 children. Caroline had 4 children.    One of my aunts told me that Dr Evan Pearce lived at Conway Castle, plus had some influence in finding the cure of Cholera.

Hi barbwiles, good to hear from you.

Evan Pierce sounds like a remarkable man. I haven't really done much more research into Evan Pierce but if this is of any help I did discover that Ann Williams, the mother of Calvinistic Methodist minister Henry Rees, also lived at Cefn Fforest.

Thus, I do wonder whether this Ann Williams is related to William Williams of Cefn Fforest mentioned earlier in this thread. One clue maybe is that William Williams' grandson William Jones married Helena Evans, the granddaughter of the congregational minister Owen Evans.

Hi everyone. 

I have just signed up to this site and noticed messages about Dr Pierce of Denbigh, whom I am also researching. 

Dr Evan Pierce was born in Prion on February 11 1808, to Thomas and Mary Pierce.  They moved to Plas Meiford, Henllan in 1812 and owned it, I think.  He became a Doctor, Mayor of Denbigh, JP and Coroner.  He lived at Salusbury Place, Vale Street, Denbigh and died on March 15 1895.  He married in 1888 and did not have any legitimate children.  He is not the Evan Pierce whose parents were Joseph and Ann.  He would not have become a Doctor had his father been a labourer.  His parents were yeoman farmers.  I'm interested in his siblings. (I am having problems sending messages, so may have sent it to the site, if so, sorry)
