Website Update 28 January 2018

The website was updated Sunday 28 January 2018. 

19 new narratives have been added, and 44 changes made since the last update on 14 January 2018. There are now a total of 12,332 detailed narratives available on the website and 19,776 people (26 new) people in our database.

The focus of the update was two-fold: 
 
Alex Attewell advised us in November 2017 about a correction required for Anne Wawnnikiewicz BAILLIE née HASTINGS. Unfortunately, the January 14 update did not include the correction, so Alex wrote to us again. How fortunate! Subsequently, we established that Anne was married in 1918, and shortly afterwards widowed. She then married Albert Holford PASKE, son of Amos PASKE and Jane PRICE, in 1924 in New Zealand. Their only daughter Gertrude, known as "Trudy" is still alive, and living in New Zealand. She is a 1st cousin, of Michael R.A. PASKE, who has helped us considerably with the research of Chart 49 - the PASKEs of Monmoutshire. Alex also put us in contact with Malcolm Zander, who in turn put us in contact with Gertrude's daughter Ruth Condor née Mawdsley. Sincere thanks to Alex, Malcolm, Ruth, and Michael in helping us put the pieces of the jigsaw together. 

The other main family researched in this update, was the PASK(E)s of Risbridge, Suffolk. Terry Farrant, has been in contact since 2013, relating to Chart 6, and Chart 6a. Terry has provided a wealth of information on this Suffolk family.

Sincere thanks to all concerned with this latest website update.

Descendants of James Pask from New Zealand

James Pask (1835-1905) originated from Essex. He was the eldest son of of James Horton Pask and Julia Asplin. His father immigrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1855, and James joined him there. 

He married his first wife, Maria Mitchell in 1861 Melbourne. James and Maria then immigrated to Wellington, New Zealand, where Maria died in 1869.  They had five children.

James then married Mary Allen in 1870. They went on to have nine children - James had 14 children altogether.


Dianne Baird née Pask is the 2 x grand-daughter of James. We have been corresponding with Dianne since 2 January 2002. She has been a major resource in compiling this family. 

On 30 July, Dianne created a new Facebook Group - Keeping Up With The Pasks, which focuses on the descendants of James.


In a very short space of time, 49 members have joined - well done! 

With the help of Dianne, Caroline Churchill, and several of the Facebook Group, we have been able to increase the number of James' descendants. Initially, we had 205. This has now been increased to 228. 

These new descendants can be seen on the Pask website. See
Chart 10: Essex Main Progenitor - John PASK, (1771-1847) Thundersley, Essex #2493


Please note: Detailed narratives are available for deceased descendants - their name are underscored in the chart. Only names appear for 'living' people - their names are not underscored. 

If you have any corrections, or additional information, we would welcome your information. Please contact us at pask@one-name.org; or join the Facebook Group Keeping Up With The Pasks.



Website Update 13 August 2017

The website was updated yesterday evening, Sunday 13 August 2017.

37 new narratives have been added, and 33 updated, since the last update on 14 July. There is now a total of 12,178 detailed narratives available on the website and 19,597 people (42 new) people in our database. 

The focus of the update was initially to reinstate lost files due to our portable hard-drive becoming corrupt immediately after the previous website update. Our worst nightmare! Fortunately, we were able to reinstate the majority of the files from our backup systems. However, the last website update had to be manually replicated. 

Once that was completed, on 7 August, the focus was the New Zealand branch of family group 10 Essex Main Progenitor - John PASK, (1771-1847) Thundersley, Essex. See the separate blog on this research. 

These updates mainly relate to the following charts / family groups:
