Innerleithen : Pearce / Bruce / McNaughton

Post by paulpesda » Sat Jul 29, 2017 11:57 pm

I would dearly love to know if there are any of the Pearce or Bruce descendants still around.

Frank Pearce (1872-1953) married Mary Ann McNaughton (1868-1946), both of whom died at Innerleithen (54 Horsbrugh St, Innerleithen (EH44 6LF)

Some of their children appeared to have stayed in the area too, such as Jane Dow Pearce (1897-1987) who married John Scott Bruce (1900-1971). Joseph Denning Pearce (1903-1977) is another child, he married Annie Mercer Lunn in Innerleithen in 1934. Margaret Pearce (b.1906 ) married Joseph William Halls in 1929, and Frank Pearce (b.1910 ) married Margaret Hope Cockburn in 1934, and possibly had a son called Frank Hope Pearce. There was and Adamnia Peacre (1908-2002).

I am related via the McNaughtons. Mary Ann McNaughton was my paternal great grandfather's sister, and the last of the family to die in 1946. My maternal grandmother sadly died aged 27 years in 1933 and my great grandfather died in 1935, so the family in Wales lost contact with each other.

My Frank Pearce (b.1872) was born in Mangotsfield, (Bristol) Gloucester, son of Joseph Pearce (b.1844) and Angelina Denning (b.1844). They were married in Sommerset in 1865, and had the following children, that I know of : Matilda Pearce (b.1866), Ellen Pearce (b.1868), the above Frank, Alfred Pearce (b.1874) and Frederick Pearce (b.1876). Joseph and Angelina remained in the Bristol area, up to the 1911 census.
