Summary of Information Recently Received

During the past two weeks in the UK, we have seen the temperatures drop and an end to the drought. For the first time in six weeks we have mown the lawns. Subsequently family historians have returned to their research. We have seen a significant increase in e-mails. Not that we are complaining!

Just to reassure everyone that we are working on their information, however it will take quite a few weeks to catch up. So watch this space for more information received from:

  • Colin Pask, who is a descendant of Victor Frederick & Ellen Elizabeth Pask née Clements. who married in 1930/Q2 in the West Ham RD. Victor was born in 1903.
  • Derrick Watson, researching Arthur J. & Sophia M. A. Pask née Farr. They married in 1925/Q2 in Bethnal Green registration district.
  • Hilary McDermott, provided an update on George & Fanny Fortescue née Pask.
  • Ian Black, sent photographs of Bertram Lionel Pask, Lilian Gertrude Pask, Florence Emily Pask, and Lilian's son Norman Black.
  • Joseph Starbuck, provided a copy from the Ryhall register of the marriage of Mary Pask and Robert Downes.
  • Malcolm Scott, researching the descendants of his great great grandmother Ann Pask from East Allington, Lincolnshire. We currently have only two childen listed, however Malcolm has provided details of nine children.
  • Melanie Carter, as detailed in the separate blog Descendants of Edgar Richard & Lottie Elizabeth Pask née Taylor.
  • Pat Maybury, providing several Pasks baptisms and burials from St Martins Church, Caerphilly (1813-1924).
  • Penny Scharning, sent photographs of Michael & Harriett Pask graves at Heckington, Lincolnshire.
  • Susan Keefe, information on Bethnal Green Infirmary/Hospital.
  • Tracey Bentley, with an update on the descendants of John & Emily Bentley née Pask, who lived in Newington, London.
  • Valerie Frances, provided the birth registrations for all eleven children of James Pasque. This was no mean feat, when you consider that this included five variations of the name - Parsk - 2; Parsque - 1; Paske - 2; Pasque - 5, and PEARSQUE!!!!!

Sincere thanks to everyone. We are currently in France to photograph the Pask(e)s on the Thiepval and Arras memorials. However we hope to update the website on our return.
