Norfolk Parish Records

Yesterday, Find My Past included in their records Norfolk Baptism, Marriages, and Burials. 

Each record not only gives a transcript of the details found in the records, but also a great bonus of the original image of the parish register.

We found, and have compiled a spreadsheet of :

Baptisms      20
Marriages       7
Burials         22
Many of the records were for 1600-1700, and not yet included in our database. 

If you have PASK ancestors that lived in London, during this period, do contact us and we will provide more details.

Greater London Burial Index

Last Friday, Find My Past included in their records The Greater London Burial Index. 

The Greater London Burial Index is a collection of:

  • Middlesex Burials & Memorial Inscriptions
  • South London Burials Index 1545-1905
  • City of London Burials 1754-1855
  • Middlesex Burials 1538-1992
We found, and compiled a spreadsheet of :
PASKs    52
PASKEs    1
As these records mainly cover the late 1700s to early 1800s, so far we have only been able to identify, and include in our database, 19 of these records. 
11 from Family Group 02-2 Suffolk
  6 from
Family Group 6 Suffolk
These records will be included in the next website update.

If you have PASK ancestors that lived in London, during this period, do contact us and we will provide more details.

Suffolk Baptisms and Marriages

Find My Past have recently included in their records Suffolk Baptism Index 1538-1911, and Suffolk Marriage Index.

Suffolk Baptism Index 1538-1911
The Suffolk Baptism Index was created by the Suffolk Family History Society. The index includes 351 parishes and 747,204 records across the East Anglian county. We found:

PASKs    247
PASKEs  248
PARSKs     2
PASQUEs   3
Whilst we have a lot of the baptisms, kindly provided by the Suffolk researchers, we have compiled a spreadsheet. We are checking the entries, and adding any new ones to the database. 

During the past week, we have added information on baptisms. In particular PASK-related families in Lawshall, and Cockfield, Suffolk. 

Charlotte Pask married Daniel Lambert and they had eleven children. They in turn had several children, and subsequently this resulted in an additional 47 new narratives. 

Suffolk Marriage Index
The transcription consists of tens of thousands of entries, between 1536 and 1902, and covering over 433 out of approximately 500 parishes of the County of Suffolk. We found:
PASKs      49
PASKEs    48
PARSKs     3
PASQUEs   0
Most of these marriages are already included in our database. However, similarly, we have created a spreadsheet and are checking the entries, and adding any new ones to the database. 

The website is currently being updated with this information today. There are now a total of 11,278 detailed narratives available on the website and 18,336 (48 new) people in our database.

Website Update 13 January 2016

The website was updated today, Wednesday 13 January 2016. The main focus of the updates were:
Charles PASK (c1734-1805) lived in Dingestow, and Cwmcarvan, Monmouthshire. He married Jane Cowcum, and their descendants span eight generations.

Michael R.A. Paske, has been writing to us since 2012. He provided a photograph of his great-grandfather Amos Paske's, grocery shop in North Woolwich. He has also provided extensive information passed to him after the death of his cousin Edith Jean Philipott. This information will be included in a future website update.
 
Simultaneously, we heard for the first time, from Michael A. Paske, who now lives in Texas. He is the great-grandson of William Paske from Kansas. William, and his brother Amos, were both born in Abergavenny Monmouthshire. In the 1870s, Amos, and his brother William immigrated to Kansas. However, Amos and his wife Jane returned c1885 and moved to Woolwich. 

The two Michaels are now in touch with each other and exchanging family history. Fortunately based on information from Michael, and the assistance of www.findagrave.com, we have been able to include a lot of missing pieces of the remaining Kansas famly.

This information relates to the main Suffolk tree - descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow, born c1680 who lived in Wickhambrook, Suffolk. In particular descendants of John Pask (1709-179) their first son. 

As a follow-on from the previous website update, additional information was kindly provided by Derek Mouland, from Australia, on his grandfather Charles Mouland, and his wife Annie Elizabeth Pask.

  This information relates to Chart 6 - Unknown Pask who lived in Kedington, Suffolk.

We have now included all the relevant information kindly provided by Terence Farrant's extensive summary of several generations of the descendants of Susan Paske, who married Joseph Coote in 1856 in Kedington, Suffolk.   

  Thomas PASK was born in 1820 in Upminster, Essex. He was the son of Thomas PASK. Thomas married Hannah PARISH on 25 December 1840 in The Parish Church, Upminster, Essex. Thomas was a Cordwainer.

Just before Christmas we heard from the granddaughter of Malcolm 'Patrick' Pask, who died at the age of 19 in a road accident. Malcolm was the grandson of Bertram Lionel Pask, who died in WWI. Bertram never knew his son, Gordon Mons Aisne Pask. Similiarily, Gordon died in WWII, Malcolm was aged 7 at the time. Malcolm never knew his daughter Joy, as he died before she was born. 


41 new narratives have been added since the last update on 1 November 2015. There is now a total of 11,231 detailed narratives available on the website and 18,288 (73 new) people in our database. 

A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.

Website Update Sunday 1 November 2015

The website was updated yesterday, Sunday 1 November 2015.

This information relates to the main Suffolk tree - descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow, born c1680 who lived in Wickhambrook, Suffolk. In particular descendants of John Pask (1709-179) their first son.

This information relates to Chart 6 - Unknown Pask who lived in Kedington, Suffolk.

This information relates to a new Chart 8 - Descendants of Philip & Elizabeth Pask née Barnard, They married in 1808 in Stambourne, Essex and lived in Sible Hedingham.

This update focuses on three families who orginated in Suffolk, and Essex:

  • Annie Elizabeth Pattle, born Pask, who moved from Suffolk to Dorset, and married Charles Mouland, a Dairyman. They had four children, and lived a long and hard-working life. Many thanks to Derek Mouland, who provided extensive information, and photographs, relating to this family.
  • The family of Terence Farrant, who has been writing to us since 2013. In August this year, Terry provided an extensive summary of several generations of the descendants of Susan Paske, who married Joseph Coote in 1856 in Kedington, Suffolk.  
  • Philip Pask, who married Elizabeth Bernard in 1808. They lived in Essex.
    A new chart 08 has been created to detail Philip's descendants.
    Their daughter Hephzibah married Ephraim Tyler on 2 May 1830 in Great Maplestead, Essex. Unfortunately on 23 July 1832, Ephraim was convicted in Chelmsford Essex of Housebreaking, and sentenced to Life. He was transported on the 'Andromeda', departing on 13 November 1832, arriving in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia on 11 March 1833. Subsequently, nearly seven years later Hephzibah remarried, and had five more children. Many thanks to Lorraine Hall, who kindly provided the background information.

    Further research is required, as it is probable that this family is linked to Chart 54, also from Essex.
Since the last update on 12 October 2015, 91 new narratives have been added. There are now a total of 11,190 detailed narratives available on the website and 18,215 (157 new) people in our database.

A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.

Website Update Thursday 1 October 2015

This information relates to the main Lincolnshire tree - descendants of Johannis [John] and Elizabeth Pask née Archer, who lived in Lincolnshire.

The website was updated today, Thursday 1 October 2015.

This update focuses on William & Bridget Pask née Massey who were born and married in Great Hale in 1824. They then moved to Ewerby in Lincolnshire. 

After the death of his wife Bridget, in December 1843, William immigrated to New Jersey in America, at the same time his children also moved to several places in the USA. 

This has been a very interesting couple of weeks researching this family, who resided in New Jersey, Ohio, and Indiana. We initially researched this family back in 2004/5. There is now significantly more information available on the internet - including baptism and marriage records, photographs and numerous newspaper articles from the places where they settled.  

There are currently 73 known descendants of this family. Undoubtedly this figure will double over time. 

This included two individuals that really were quite special: 
  • Milton Lawrence McCall, their 2 x great-grandson, although he died in 1963, at the early age of 52, he left a lasting legacy. So much so that only this year he has been honoured. For more information read his narrative.
  • Elmer Allah Burlingame, their great-grandaughter's husband. In 1898, while attending high school, he got an idea. Elmer went on to be in the fore-front of the world’s greatest inventive geniuses. Unfortunately in 1914, things began to go very wrong. For more information read his narrative.
44 new narratives have been added since the last update on 15 September 2015. There is now a total of 11,076 detailed narratives available on the website and 18,030 (45 new) people in our database.

A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.
