Theresa Pearl

Generally known as Pearl, life began in 1886 and Pearl died in 1953. Not a great deal is known of Pearl's life but she worked for many years in country NSW. She was also known as Pearl Simpson.

Pearl had a son, Wallace, born in 1917 - he is now 85 and lives with his wife Bettie on the south coast of NSW. They have three daughters, one son, several grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Although a fitter and turner by trade, like so many other Hawkless descendants, Wal seems to also have an affinity with timber - borne out by his wonderful model ships - a couple of photos taken during a visit in September 2002 will give you an idea of the scale and a shot of his "workbench".
