Robert Lucas Pearsall (1795 - 1856)
Robert Lucas Pearsall (14 March 1795 – 5 August 1856) was an English composer. Pearsall was born at Clifton in Bristol on 14 March 1795 into a wealthy Quaker family. His father, Richard Pearsall (died 1813), was an army officer and amateur musician. He was privately educated. Pearsall's mother, born Elizabeth Lucas, managed in 1816 to buy the Pearsall family house at Willsbridge, Gloucestershire from her brother-in-law, Thomas Pearsall, after the failure of an iron mill which had been in the family since 1712. However, Pearsall sold the house in 1837 after his mother died. The iron mill was converted by others into a flour mill, which still stands.
