First, let me start that all of my names are names of ancestors: Pearce Bray Sloan. The furthest I could find of my Pearce was John Pearce (Pearse) Sr. suspected to be born ~1600 in Wales. He was reportedly a Baptist there, and emigrated with his father and two brothers (no names)-family folklore. He lived in Middleton, New Jersey first recorded in 1681 (where he bought 16 acres), and he continued to live in Monmouth County until his death ~1758. There are a tooooon of court documents for him from 1681 to 1757, like yearly in court for one matter or another. But I cannot find anything prior to 1681 of his origin or lineage. He married a Sarah and had three sons Joseph, John Jr., and William in Monmouth County ~1690-1705.
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I cannot create his page yet since he is pre-1700.
