Hellp me find Esther Pearce


Well-known member

I'm having difficulty tracing my Great grandmother Esther Pearce Born Dec. 1883 in Parsonstown Ireland

From what I can establish she was married three times in the following order
1- Thomas James
2 - Walter Harry Richards
3 - James A Tapp

Ivy Doreen her daughter, my grandmother (1905-1973), her birth Cert, indicates that she was born in Wales, the father was William Harry Richards and the mother Esther Richards formerly Pearce. That's not a problem, or is it?

In the 1911 Census, it shows Esther was married to Thomas James who was a Stoker Royal Naval Reserve, married for ten years and her daughters also listed were Ivy Doreen James and Winifred Irene James (1910-1991). Living at College Place Southampton

I have found a 1902 Oct.marriage for Esther to William Harry Richards in Alverstoke, Hampshire.

I have extensive details of my family history, but the particular one is very confusing and I seem to be hitting a brick wall.

I have in the past had a lot of help from you all, can that happen again!!

All the Best - Ron
