Latest On Pearson

Posted: October 27, 2008 in Dr. Alfred W. Pearson: Jack The Ripper
I have been poring over all of the Historical Directories at the Midlands Historical Data website and have made a most remarkable discovery. Dr. Alfred William Pearson and Dr. John Jones Parrish (his second cousin), were Surgeons for the 1st Staffordshire Rifle Volunteer Corps, D Company. The entry can be found on page 166 of the 1880 Kelly’s Directory of Staffordshire, and can only be viewed if you purchase some voucher credits. It states:
 
Staffordshire Rifle Volunteer Corps (1st) D. Company, Market Hall, Kingswinford, William G. Webb, captain; Rev. Thomas Legh Claughton M.A. chaplain; John Jones Parrish & Alfred William Pearson, surgeons.
