James, Elizabeth, Selena, Emma, and Mary (sister of James) are at 14 Broadmead. Elizabeth’s age is 70 and her birth place is clearly Gloucestershire, Ovair (should be Over) [info from Douglas Grant Pearce, Canada]

1861 Census:

S Pearce Daughter Unm 38 Housekeeper Born Gloucestershire, Bristol
Selina Smith Gran Dau Unm 19 Dyer Shopwoman Born Gloucestershire, Bristol
Margaret Pearce Gran Dau 12 Scholar Born Gloucestershire, Bristol
Mary Meade Servant Unm 22 House servant Born Wiltshire, Bradford According to Douglas Grant Pearce of Canada, Mary Pearce, a sister of James born in 1792, lived with James and Elizabeth in their house in Bristol. The parents of James and Mary are unknown. The surname Pearce was common in Bristol at that time.
James is listed in Pigot’s Directory of Gloucestershire, (1830) as a dyer/calenderer at 14 Broadmead, in Bristol. A calenderer is one who operates a calender, a machine in which paper or cloth is made smooth and glossy by being pressed through rollers.
Elizabeth was also a dyer. James was listed in the Post Office directory of 1863 as a dyer, still at 14 Broadmead. By this time, Mary and Elizabeth were gone, and James probably died before 1871.
