- Married: 9 Nov 1776, Camborne, Cornwall
- Buried: 11 Jun 1810, Mylor, Cornwall
Who William Pearce's parents were, depends upon whether William Pearce was sojourning in Camborne when he married Ursula Saunders, or was born in that or a neighbouring Parish. If William was a sojourner from Mylor, then he would probably have been christened there on 30 Nov 1738, son of Thomas Pearce and Mary Simms. On the other hand, if William Pearce came from the Redruth district of which Camborne is part, then there are two candidates:
- William, christened 26 Sep 1751 in Gwinear, son of Andrew Pearce and Mary King, or
- William, christened 29 Jun 1751 in Redruth, son of Richard Pearce and Grace
Note that the names Andrew & Mary on the one hand, and Richard & Grace on the other, appear among the names of William's and Ursula's children.
William married Ursula SAUNDERS, daughter of William SAUNDERS and Hester VIVIAN, on 9 Nov 1776 in Camborne, Cornwall. (Ursula SAUNDERS was born in 1749 in Camborne, Cornwall, christened on 28 Oct 1749 in Camborne, Cornwall and was buried on 19 Mar 1799 in Mylor, Cornwall.)
