Great Gonerby - Grimsby Pasks

We recently linked via www.genesreunited, with Katie Pask whose family live in Grimsby. After our initial contact it was realised that Katie's ancestors originated from Great Gonerby, and that Katie's father Martin and Stuart are fourth cousin, and fourth cousin once removed. You are probably wondering how he could be both. Martin's parents were Herbert Edward and Annie Mary and both Pasks, as they were first cousins once removed.

As we have recently completed the transcription of all births, marriages, and deaths we have been able to update their descendants as the original information was provided by Michael Wood several years ago, and only included their names.

By coincidence during our trip to Grimsby we visited Cleethorpes Cemetery in our search for Pasks mentioned in the National Burial Index. We visited Annie's unmarked grave. We also located the grave of Katie's great grandparents Edward & Mary Pask née Askew.
