History of the County of Perth, 1825-1902
William Johnston, 1903

p.528-9
John Pearson, a prominent municipal officer in Ellice, was born at Ashford, County of Kent, England, in 1826, immigrating with his father's family in 1841. In 1844 he came to Ellice, and located on lot 16, in the second concession. For thirty years he carried on farming on the old homestead, removing to Sebringville in 1874. Here he engaged in saw-milling and general business, and was early identified with municipal government. A reference to the history of Ellice township will show the offices he was chosen to fill, and the implicit trust the people reposed in his integrity.
