  • Name William Forbert Pearson 
    • Born 27 May 1891 @ Pately Bridge, Yorkshire.
      1901 census shows his parents are James and Sophia Elizabeth Pearson James is an Insurance Agent.
      James and Sophia Inman were married 1st Quarter 1889.
      Interestingly, on the 1901 census, William has a younger brother called Herbert. So that must mean that Forbert is an actual name or derived from Ferbert etc.
      Unfortunately, cannot go backwards as most of the Pearson records are Civil records and not Parish so don't give parents names.Did a wild search and James' father could have been a William and his grandfather a Thomas but speculation.
      This is purely an observation but, given James was an Insurance Agent and lives in Yorkshire where we have investigated a few Ferbert's, could the name have been picked up from clients?
      There is a death record for William Forbert Pearson who died on 20 August 1916. He was in 2nd battalion Royal Sussex Regiment and is buried at Adanuc Military Cemetery at Mitaumont.
      I know it's him because his parent's names and his place of birth are given
