Edwin Robertson Prockter (1946-2019)

We have been advised, by several researchers, that sadly Edwin Prockter died on Thursday 9 May at Lincoln Hospital. 

Edwin Robertson Prockter was born in 1946 in Forest Hill, Kent. He was the son of Claude William Prockter and Hilda Vera Pask (known as Vera). Edwin provided a superb photograph of his mother, and nine of her 13 siblings.  
 
Edwin was the 5th great-grandson of Peter Pask, who was born in 1739, and married Catherine Frost in 1764. 

Edwin was an assiduous researcher of the Pask family. We are eternally grateful for him sharing his discoveries so willingly. 

Heart-felt sympathies to his wife Veronica, and their family. He will be missed incredibly.

In addition, more information was kindly provided by Vickie Eggers, on the German family Chart 82: Herman PASKE & his wife Johanna LERISUS, whose descendants immigrated to Wisconsin, USA. This also coincided with an obituary,
kindly transcribed by Denise Grant, that included other members of this PASKE family. There is a lot more on this family, and we will endeavour to include this information in the near future.

Dorothy Gwendoline Pask (1925-2017)

With the deepest regret, we have to advise that Dorothy Pask, from Beckenham, died on 31 December 2017.

She had been ill for several months, and died in Coloma Court Care Home, Layhams Road, West Wickham, Kent. Her funeral service took place on 5 February 2018. 

Dorothy was the 6th great-granddaughter of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow. She was the daughter of William John Pask, and Nellie May Woods.

Dorothy was a keen family historian and provided a considerable amount of information on the descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow. She was very well known with researchers of this Suffolk family.

We had the pleasure of meeting her several times. She attended the Pask Family Gathering in Whepstead, Suffolk on 26 July, 2008. 

We are in touch with her niece, Laura, who lives in Canada. We are sure you will join us in passing our deepest condolences to Dorothy's family. We are honoured to have known her.

Website Update 2 September 2018 - Now Available

The website was updated 2 September 2018. However, due to the issues with website, I could not display the update. That has now been resolved - you may need to refresh your browser.

26 new narratives have been added, and 123 changed, since the last website update on 19 August 2018. There are now a total of 12,509 detailed narratives available on the website and 20,071 people (24 new) in our database.

There was a problem with the availability of the website since the last website update. This was due to the domain requiring changes to the site hosting. This has now been completed, and hopefully the website will not experience any further problems.

The focus of this website update was the Lincolnshire family of Henry PASK, and Elizabeth ASMAN, kindly provided by P. Bruce Stephenson. Several of their children immigrated to America in 1872, and settled in Orleans County, New York State. Whilst this family was detailed by the late Shirley Julie Amos née Pask in 2012, it was unbelievable how much new information has become available. For this website update, the focus was on page 7 of Shirley's Family Booklet of Henry and Elizabeth Pask of Lincolnshire. We plan to update other pages in future website updates.

In addition, Michael Neal provided valuable 1939 Register updates on the descendants of Walter and Rosetta PASK née RIXON.

Sincere thanks to all concerned with this latest website update.

These changes relate to the following surnames:

PASK, PASKE, and
ABBOTT, AMOS, ARMSTRONG, ASMAN, BAME, BARNES, BECKETT, BELL, BELLAMY, BETTONEY, CAPES, CAREY, CHESTER, COTTAM, CUTHBERTSON, DECKER, DUFF, GLADDING, GRAY, HACKLEY, HARRIS, HARTWIG, HEY, HEYE, HODGES, JONES, KENWOOD, LEEK, LEVY, MANCHESTER, MARSHALL, MAXWELL, MIELKE, OXBY, PETERS, PLATT, PLATTS, QUANTRILL, RAY, REEK, RIORDEN, RIXON, SCOTT, STEPHENSON, STUBBS, TINKHAM, TWELL
