Descendants of Phillip PASK, (1768 - 1843) Bryngwyn, Monmouthshire

Whilst searching for information on Henry Kinsela Pask in the London Gazette, I came across information relating to the death of Barbara Mary Pask on 3 July 2004.

I searched the GRO indexes, and established that she was the daughter of Roland Weed & Edith A. Pask née Arnold. I was intrigued to see the name Weed, and continued to follow this line. As often happens, several hours later and numerous censuses, births, marriages, and deaths provided me with a lot of information on Barbara's ancestors.

Roland was the son of Frank William & Alice Pask née Weed - hence the christian name of Weed. In the 1901 census, Frank was a Solicitor's Clerk living with his wife and family in 50 Bensham Manor Road, Croydon, Surrey. Also listed was five children - Arthur F., Bernard W., Celia M., Alice L. E., and Roland W. Sadly, they had another son Sydney Alan Pask, who died in infancy.

Although Frank had lived in the London area since the 1880s, he infact was born in 1854 in Chepstow, Monmouthshire. He was the son of William & Elizabeth Pask née Wright. Frank had a sister Lucy Elizabeth who was born in 1857 in Kidderminster. Lucy was recently detailed in another blog relating to West Ham Marriage Transcripts, where it details her marriage to Leo Taylor on 7 July1883.

William was baptized on 16 June 1830 in Bryngwyn, Monmouthshire. He was the son of Phillip & Mary Pask née Morgan, the eldest son of Philip & Phoebe Pask née Lewis.

I was able to establish that Barbara was the 3rd great-granddaughter of Philip PASK. A family chart of the descendants of Philip & Phoebe Pask née Lewis, is available on the website and will be updated in the next website update.
