William Pask born 1860 in Stainton, Lincolnshire

Chris Bell kindly provided the birth certificate of William Pask who was born on 9 May 1960 in Stainton [by Langworth] Lincolnshire. He was the son of Thomas and Charlotte Pask née Knowles.

In the 1881 census he was living with his brother Edward Pask, in Salford Lancashire. He married Alice Nelson in 1884 in the Prestwich registration district, and they moved to Pendleton Lancashire. William and Alice had three children Christina (1884-1895), Elizabeth Ann (1888-), and Lily (1891-).

Unfortunately his wife, Alice, died in 1893 the same year as his father Thomas. William then married Ruth Owen in 1894. Although they are listed in the 1901 census, no death record has been found in the GRO indexes for William or Ruth. Similarily no record of a marriage or death of their daughters Elizabeth Ann, and Lily. It could be assumed that they moved abroad perhaps to Canada, a popular destination at that time.

Many thanks to Chris for providing us with the birth certificate.
