This page contains links to websites that have information about some ancestors and relations of this Pears family. Whilst this is the prime purpose, readers not connected to this Pears family may find several items of interest. Many sites have a wealth of information on Christian missions in India in the 1800s and consequently about life in India at that time. A number of these sites are e-books. i.e. old books electronically scanned for the computer. Some are transcribed manually from old manuscripts. Both types contain errors in transcription. For example Warwick Dashwood Bussell, is variously referred to as Harwich, Daskwood, Russell. Coghlan in some places comes out as Goghlan as Caghlan. When reading the sites below, use your browser's 'Search' feature to find relevant parts within the document, but bear in mind the transcription problem just mentioned. Some pages, depending on how it is presented, may not be directly searchable. In this case look somewhere near the top to see if a 'Plain Text' option is offered. If it is offered, choose that to enable searching. Some documents are not searchable because they are presented as images.[The Coghlans][The Bussells][The Whites] [The Waters]
Admiral SIR Charles Henry Coke, K.C.V.O., Royal Navy (2 November, 1854 – 23 February, 1945) was a nephew of Warwick Dashwood Bussel; son of his sister Adelaide. WD Bussell was a great grandfather of George Pears. In other words one of the Admiral's grandfathers (John Bussell) is an ancestor of this Pears family through Maude (Coghlan) Pears.
