George Henry & Jane Levesley née Pask

Sally Baldwin contacted us last weekend, and provided the marriage of George Levesley (born c1847 Heckington) to Jane Pask (born c1847 Ewerby Thorpe). They married in 1867 in the Sleaford Registration District. Sally also advised that the family were living in Bicker in the 1871 and 1881 censuses, and then Rippingdale in the 1891 and 1901 censuses.

I found them living in Bicker in the 1871 Census, together with their young daughters Harriet & Elizabeth. I searched the database and realised that Jane was the only daughter of Michael & Harriet Pask. I have currently not found the marriage of Michael & Harriet, as it is not listed in the GRO indexes.

Penny Scharning had recently contacted us about Michael & Harriet Pask, and provided information and photographs of their gravestone in Heckington churchyard. When Michael died in 1893, probate was granted to his son-in-law George Henry Levesley.
