Luke was baptised in Lee, Buckinghamshire 3 May 1809, the son of Joseph and Hannah Pearce. Luke married Hannah Walker in Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire 14 December 1829 and a daughter was born 13 June 1830. This situation was not an unusual situation and later Hannah produced a son born 2 October 1831. In Little Missenden in 1829 was a lady by the name of Elizabeth Tucker - a single woman - and she gave birth to a son Charles 31 January 1830. Again this is not an unusual situation. 1841 census in Little Missenden, finds Luke with his wife Hannah and their 5 children and Luke is an Ag. Lab. Next door is Elizabeth Tucker with her son Charles - no occupation indicated - living with 2 ladies of independent means. Between 1841 and 1843 Elizabeth and Charles move a few miles to Chesham Bois and then she marries Thomas Butterfield there 14 February 1843. By 1851 Elizabeth and Thomas have 3 children and can be found in Chesham Bois. Her son Charles has moved to Hillingdon, Middlesex by 1850 and is working as a Servant. Charles married in Hillingdon 16 June 1850. Charles names his father as Luke Pearce - Ag. Lab. Meanwhile, back in Little Missenden, Luke's wife Hannah died Jul-Sep q. 1846. Luke can be found in 1851 census with 6 children at home - the youngest a son - age 5 whose birth was registered Oct-Dec q. 1846. Nearby in the parish is Sarah West a 34 year unmarried lady with an infant West. Sarah and Luke marry later in 1851 In 1854 they have a daughter. 2 questions: 1] Was Luke really the father of Charles Tucker? 2] What became of the infant West, who I believe was born Oct-Dec q. 1850 - birth registered in Wycombe that include the parish of Little Missenden?
