Heirlooms Reunited

Just recently I was notified by Paula Payne, a Monmouthshire and Nottingham Pask researcher, that a Pask document was available on e-bay.

Document dated 2nd October 1869 - certificate of Acknowledgements of Deeds by Married Women. Signed by Charles Denton Leech and John Cambridge, commissioners appointed for the County of Suffolk for taking the Acknowlegements of Deeds By Married Woman. Refers to Edward Mills Pask and Elizabeth Sarah Pask his wife. Also mentions Joseph Hirst. Two page printed document with handwritten details. Final part of page two states that the premises wherein Elizabeth Sarah Pask stated to be interested are in Cemetery Road, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Edward Mills Pask was born in 1842 and was the son of James PASK and Harriet Elizabeth MILLS. He married Elizabeth Sarah LOCKE on 25 December 1868 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk.

Cheekingly, I wrote to the seller Heirlooms Reunited, and said that if he did not sell it I would be very interested.

Today, he wrote to me that as he did not sell it, he will kindly send it to me free-of-charge.

Update 21 June: The document arrived in the post, as promised. We just love original documents - there is something about the look and feel of them.
