John Evans Pearce

Looking for information on John Evans Pearce, born in Southsea, Hampshire, England on 12 May 1854. It is unknown when he came to South Africa, but he married Maria Johanna Elizabeth Steyn on 11 July 1882 in Steynsburg, Cape Colony. His wife and some of his children were in concentration camps in the Free State, but I can not find any other information on him.
