Mrs. Pearce's name, together with those of her late husband and surviving children, will always be honorably associated with Pearcedale. Indeed, the Pearce family have not only given the township its name, but have been responsible for its development and welfare. It affords me the greatest pleasure, and I deem it an honor to be given this opportunity of bearing public testimony to the high esteem in which your guest of the evening is held in our little community, and also by a wide circle of friends outside. Our friend has known the deepest sorrow, having lost her husband and given a son to the Empire. But in spite of these great trials has shown a brave front. It may be truly said of Mrs. Pearce that she has been a model wife and a good mother and a useful citizen

MR. JOHN JAMES CORLETT. (1841-1921)
Mornington Standard, 23rd April 1920
A large gathering of descendents and friends of Mr J. Corlett, senr., ssembled at his residence on Satur- day evening, April 17th, to honor and congratulate the worthy old gentleman on his attaining the ripe age of 80 years on that day. Mr Corlett, who was born in the Isle of Man, is well preserved for his age, and is one of the oldest residents here. Prior to the purchase of his present landed estate, he lived at Ballam Park, and while living there he was the means of having the first services of the Methodist Church held at his residence, and from this small beginning the Church has made so much progress that services are now held in a large and substantial brick Church. As Mr Corlett and his family are so wellknown throughout the Peninsula,We take the opportunity of wishing him many more happy returns of the day
