Notes for Christopher Pearson:
Christopher Pearson, born 1645 in Ullock Cumberland, England; died June 1711 in Pardshaw, England. He was the son of John Jr. Pearson and Elizabeth Unknown. He married Elinor Fearon June 09, 1670 in Pardshaw, England. Elinor Fearon, died May 02, 1714 in Pardshaw, England. She was the daughter of George Fearon.

Christopher Pearson owned his own farm and followed a rustic life similar to that of his forebearers. Lived during the English Revolution. Also in the religious ferment of the seventeenth century, a more liberal Christian sect arose in England, the Society of Friends, more commonly called the "Quaker" faith, founded by George Fox. There was no official ministry among the Friends; each congregation tended to its own spiritual and temporal needs, while certain inspired people served as missionaries and teachers. If they had meeting houses they held their church affairs there, if not, they would hold services at a Friend's house.

Christopher married Eleanor Fearon in Richard Fawcett's house in Eaglesfield on June 9th, 1670. Eleanor Fearon Pearson was from an active Friend family, with generations of equally devout Anglican yeomanry in her background. The oldest extant headstone at St. Oswald's is that erected for George Fearon 1687 with the inscription: "Under this stone George Fearon's corpse doth lie, sleeping till waked by the Archangel's cry". George is the father of Eleanor Fearon. Christopher and Eleanor continued to live in Ullock and were members of the Pardshaw Meetings.

Christopher died in Ullock and was buried probably at Pardshaw Crag or Eaglesfield, April 19, 1711. Elinor followed and was buried May 2, 1714. The will of Christopher is as follows: "I Christopher Pearson of Ullock in the parish of Dean and County of Cumberland being weak in Body yet perfect in mind and memory doe therefore make my last Will and Testament in manner as followeth -First I commit my spirit to God and my body to be buryed at the discretion of my Executors hereafter named and as to the Settling of that small estate it hath pleased the Lord to lend to me I give and bequeath the same as followeth that is to say: I give to my son Peter Pearson one shilling in full of my personnell estate haveing preferred him before: I give to my loveing wife Ellinor twenty shillings and one Bedding of Cloathes and a Bedstead in the Back left.
