Lilian Gertrude Pask (1882-)

Ian Black contacted me, and provided information on his grandmother Lilian Gertrude Pask, who married Lennox Garrick Black in Devonport in December 1913.

Lilian was born in 1882, and was the daughter of the shoemaker Thomas & Elizabeth Pask née Mollard. Lilian has several siblings including possibly Herbert, Charles, Bertram, Florence, Mande, Muriel, Violet, Jessie, Ernest, and Ivy. Several of which died in infancy. The family lived in Northampton, however Lilian's father Thomas Henry (also known as Henry Thomas, or Thomas Harry) was born in 1841 in Upminster, Essex. His parents were Thomas & Hannah Pask née Parish. Thomas was also a shoemaker, and the whole family were involved in making shoes, as seen in the 1851 census, when Thomas Snr was a Boot Closer, and his children were either an Operator, Liner, or Closer.

Once my laptop is operational again, I will update the database with extensive information about these families.
