Pierce One Name Study

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the Pierce surname. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc. Please help add Pierces and their stories so we can all know our roots. Adopt orphaned Pierce profiles or connect Pierce profiles that are not connected to the main WikiTree. This is for all who have had a Pierce in their name. (birth, marriage, etc) The mission of the project is to add and improve profiles of all Pierces. Project members take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, removing incorrect information and offering research assistance as needed.

I'm descended from GGG grandfather Evan Pierce on Ffestiniog Wales, who was first to move from patrynomy under English law in 1830s. I have ancestry DNA.

Pierce/Peirce/Pearce/Pearse - descending from English immigrant to Portsmouth, Rhode Island Richard Pearce b. 1590, d. 1666, arrival abt. 1642.

Please note that the connection with the Percy family of the Duke of Northumberland through Peter Percy has been thoroughly debunked.

Am interested in well-documented English origins, East Greenwich, RI Pierces, and descendants of 1ggf Sanford Ellsworth Pierce d. 1928, Duluth, MN, and wife Augusta Silvia Marie Lion, d. 1963, Duluth, MN.

Hello fellow Pierce’s. My grandfather was George Joseph Pierce, born in Philadelphia, 1989. His brothers were Lawton and Ernest. There are sister I can list later. His wife was Charlotte Mildred Fisher. Let me know if this fits in with any information you might have. Glad to know I am not the only one trying to connect the dots.

Hi, my moms maiden name is Pierce and i'm working on her family tree. Would this be an appropriate group for me to join? I'm looking for fellow 'distant cousins' to share family tree stuff with.

Hi Fen, all Pierce researchers are welcome here. I noticed your mom's name is Jennifer Joanne Pierce and she is still living. She would be an excellent sour e to learn about your Pierce heritage. If you know your grandfather's name and his place of birth we can start there and hopefully find his/your ancestors.

Have you been DNA tested? It is not required but it does help. If there is anything I can help you with, just ask?

I havent been DNA tested yet, and don't currently have plans for such because of funding. I've went and added as much of my moms pierce line as I could, I'm working on adding sources now. My grandpa Charlie is still alive, but his dad is Pierce-13347 (John Pierce) and I was able to link it up all the way to Pearce-7054 (William Pearce) I guess the spelling changes a few times along the way. All the info was done by my mom on FamilySearch, so I just need to get the actual sources and link them. (I'm struggling with the formatting for this but I'm getting better.) Feel free to send me a message if you'd like more info. I'd love to eventually see if I can link my tree up to yours.
