William Partington Pask (1853-1939)

William Partington Pask was born in 1853 in Great Crosby, Lancashire, England. He was the son of Thomas and Sarah Pask née Partington.

After the death of his parents, William lived with his step-parents in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. When he was 11 years old, he had an argument with his step-parents which resulted in him signing up on a ship travelling to Australia as a cabin boy.

William married Margaret Rosina Webster Stewart c1878 in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. They went on to have ten children. Eight of them are included in this photograph, taken in 1899. For more details see http://pask.org.uk/Pask-p/e2834.htm.

Recently, we have been in touch with Patricia Murphy, the granddaughter of William and Mary's daughter Agnes Kinsey née Pask. Patricia has kindly provided the above family photograph, together with extensive information on Agnes, and her siblings, and their descendants. This information has been included in the website update on 12 April 2020. 

Sincere thanks to Patricia for her wealth of information, and numerous photographs from her Stewart Family Tree available on Ancestry.

George Pask (1940-2019)

We have been advised, by his son Carl, that sadly George Pask of Styrrup, Nottinghamshire has died at the age of 79.

He died very suddenly, and unexpectedly, at Bassetlaw Hospital, on 28th December 2019. 



His funeral will be held on 21st January 2020, at 11:00am at the Barnby Moor Memorial Park & Crematorium, Randby Retford, Nottinghamshire. Refreshments will follow afterwards at the Styrrup Golf Club.

George was the son of George Frederick & Ivy Pask née Layne. They both died in the early 1970s in the Worksop registration district. The family are descendants of the Lincolnshire Main Progenitor, John Pask (c1520-1591). 

Heartfelt sympathies to George's wife Angela, and his sons Carl, and Simon.
 

Carl joined the Pask Family History Facebook Group in 2016.
