Introduction

The Lawrence Pearson line may or may not be connected to our family history. If this family is part of our common heritage, it must come through the Charles Pearson line by way of one of Lawrence's grandchildren. As reported in that chapter, Enoch's grandson, William, died in circa 1844 and willed some estate property to Charles Pearson of Franklin County, TN. Charles later probated the property back to William's son, Kindred of Bedford County, TN (see: chapter on Charles Pearson Family Line). This strange coincidence leads us to believe that these two family lines are related in some as yet unknown manner. Indeed, it is because of this coincidence that the Author as taken upon certain assumptions about the pedigree of our Great-Grand parent, William Houston Pearson.

In any event, the Lawrence Pearson line begins with its roots in Mobberly, England. At least two of his sons immigrated to the Pennsylanvia Colony in 1682-1687. A Quaker family of the Friends denomination, some family members moved to the Bush River area of South Carolina near Padget's Creek in circa 1775. Enoch's grandson William moved his family in circa 1812 to TN, thus setting the stage for the estate probate referred to in the previous paragraph.
