Biographical data
Name: Pearse, Arthur  
   Also known as: Colonel A Pearse; General Pearse
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'Arthur Pearse' who played for the St. George's Club in London in 1898, according to Forster, was the 'General Pearse' who played for the St. George's Club as early as 1886 (see, for example, the British Chess Magazine of Apr. 1886, p.158). Further evidence that General Pearse had first initial 'A' is given in the Chess Player's Chronicle of 8 Nov. 1882 (p.532), where a list of committee members for the organization of the London Tournament of 1883 includes 'Colonel A Pearse, R.A.'.
