Descendants of Robert & Gertrude Alice Pask née Barnes

Maureen contacted us yesterday about her grandfather Robert Pask. In the 1901 census he was enumerated under the name of Pass, in Great Ringstead, Norfolk (RG13; Piece: 1881; Folio: 46; Page: 4). In the census, he was listed as aged 26 born in Frieston Lincolnshire, an Agricultural Labourer, living with his wife's family John & Jane M. Nobes. He was with his wife Gertrude A., and children Marie G., and Maud L.

Robert married Gertrude Alice Barnes and he died in Scarborough in 1946 at the age of 73. Gertrude moved back to Wisbech, and remarried in 1951 to Garner Wallis.

Maureen wrote that all his children's birth certificates state Pask. Maureen's mother was one of his 13 children.

So far, we have been able to identify 10 of the 13 children:

  1. Marie (Maria) G. 1900-
  2. Maud L 1900-1932
  3. Mary Alice 1902-
  4. Florence Evelyn 1907-
  5. Dorothy A. 1913-b1932
  6. Eileen I. 1915-
  7. Sylvia R. 1917-
  8. Gladys V.V. 1920-
  9. Leslie R. 1922-1984
  10. Renee
Maureen has provided us additional information, and we are in process of verifying and researching this family.
