Welcome to the genealogy of the Pearces of Poole and related families. We hope that these pages are interesting and thought provoking. As youngsters we barely give family history a second thought but as time goes by we come to realise that our history is slipping away from us and that we should endeavour to cherish and keep the memories of our past. This site has been produced to gather together data and memories of our families so that future generations can can enjoy them too. Anyone can view the database but if you want to suggest additions or correct mistakes then please contact us via the site. This work is never complete and new information or corrections to our mistakes are always welcome. Alan Pearce
