The sisters were the children of Elizabeth Philadelphia Pearce Hall (nee Cunyngham) and Charles Pearce Hall (ne Pearce).

St Kitts no. 333. See claim notes for the Memorial of the sisters setting out the background to their claim and its resolution. The sisters are not identified by their christian names but appear as the 'Misses Hall' or the Pearce Hall spinsters: their christian names have been inferred from the probate records, which show all the three women as spinsters of Clifton.
