Mr. Jervis, who took his wife's name some years ago, was a son of the late dean Pearson of Salisbury, and elder brother of canon Pearson of Windsor. To the general public he is best known as the author of a learned and interesting work on the History of the Church of France, from the Concordat of Boulogne to the Close of the First Empire (London, 1872-82, 3 volumes).
