Francis Barrow Pearce (1866-1926) was a British imperial administrator. In 1914, he was appointed a British Resident (a senior British official) in Zanzibar, working with the protectorate's High Commissioner Henry Conway Belfield (1855-1923). This work includes chapters on the early history of the island, ‘the Zanzibar and Pema of to-day’, and ‘for the first time the ancient Persian and Arab ruins which lie hidden in the forests of Zanzibar and Pemba’.
