Alfred Charles Pearce was a musician and band leader with the Sons of England band and Terminal City Boys’ Band. He lived at 1800 Alberni Street from 1918 to 1926.

Alfred Charles Pearce was born in Plymouth, Devonshire, England, probably on December 30, 1872 (although some sources say he was born in 1869.) His father was George Pearce, who was born about 1841 in Dartmouth, Devonshire. Alfred’s mother was Sophia, who was born about 1847 in Tavistock, Devonshire.

Alfred served with the British forces during the Boer War in South Africa.

In 1903, in Plymouth, Alfred married Bertha Barrett. She was born on May 6, 1874, in Polperro, Cornwall, England. It appears that her father was Thomas Barrett (1841-1877), and that her mother was Susan Roose (1843-1918).

In 1906, Alfred served during the “Zulu Rebellion,” probably with the Durban Light Infantry.

About 1908, Alfred and Bertha travelled to Canada, along with their son, Leonard. In 1911, they were living in Summerland, British Columbia. Alfred was a bandmaster.

Alfred first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1914. He was living at 304 Robson Street, and he was a musician at the Rex Theatre (which was at 25 West Hastings Street).

Museum of Vancouver, Sons of England bowling trophy; http://www.museumofvancouver.ca/collections/object/sons-england-bowling-trophy: “Removed from friends and relatives, newcomers looked to their countrymen and women for friendship and help in hard times, and sometimes for ethnic solidarity. Harry Sutch won this league championship trophy in the Sons of England five-pin bowling league in 1942-43. The Sons of England Benefit Society offered their members fun times as well as an insurance and burial scheme. Meeting at the Western Jubilee Lodge at 244 East 14th Avenue, the group, which had been founded in Toronto in 1874, sought to protect the interests of Englishmen and their descendants in Canada.”
