Family Chart 11 - Descendants of John Pask from Gautby Lincolnshire

A couple of weeks ago, we were fortunate to recruit a male to do a Y-DNA test. The results will hopefully help considerably in establishing whether John Pask (c1745-1793) is linked to other PASKs from Lincolnshire. 

John is the progenitor of Chart 11: John PASK, (c1745-1793) married Elizabeth FOUNTAIN and they lived in Gautby, Lincolnshire #7697.

At the last website update, there were 523 people assigned to Chart 11. The majority of the narratives were last updated in 2006. So we decided to review this family, and include the latest information, now readily available on the internet. This includes, baptism, marriage, and burial transcripts and images from the parish registers. Also the new GRO online index, which now has the mother's maiden name for indexes between 1837 and 1911 - a significant 'new' resource. Also The 1939 Register, a superb resource that was like a ‘census’ and taken on 29 September 1939 just after the outbreak of war. It was then used to issue identify cards, and subsequently ration cards.

So far, we have found an additional 41 descendants, and have only touched the surface of Chart 11. We will continue to work on this family whilst we wait for the DNA results - this normally takes 4-6 weeks from receipt at the laboratory in Texas, USA. So watch this space.

In the meantime, if you have any additional information on Chart 11, don't hesitate to contact us at
