Henry William Pearson

NOTE: Dear Georgina (if I may), Idly entering my great-grandfather's name and home town into Google, I was delighted to find him, his siblings and parents popping up in your Genealogy pages! I searched for Henry William Pearson who was born in Halifax on the 22nd April 1856, and there he was. He married Louisa Jane Clark in Harborne, Birmingham, in 1880. Their daughter Alice Helena May married William Francis Sheppard in Harborne in 1904. They had three children, of whom my father Geoffrey was the youngest by fourteen years, born in 1923 in Sherborne, Dorset. All this was prompted by a visit to Halifax on business today. So there you go! Are we related? Regards, Martin Sheppard York, UK
