R.L. Pearsall
Robert Lucas (de) Pearsall (14/03/1795 - 05/08/1856), an English composer, born in Clifton, Bristol, Great Britain, known as Ritter Robert Lucas Pearsall of Willsbridge. Pearsall practiced in Bristol as a barrister, but a mild stroke in 1825 persuaded him of the need to convalesce abroad, and he left England with his young family, settling first at Mainz and then in Karlsrühe in Germany from 1830 - 1842 and later at the Schloss Wartensee by Rorschach in Switzerland, where he remained until his death in 1856.
