Emily Pask's Bible

In September Lucy Meyer-Hubner wrote and advised that a Pask family bible was listed on Kevin Roy Shucksmith's website. I contacted Kevin and he advised that it had been used as a leaf press by someone and has a few leaves still left in it. The cover is worn but still holding and the first and last few pages are foxed.

The bible belonged to Emily Pask, who was born in 1863 in Fulbeck, Lincolnshire. She was the daughter of George & Betsy Pask née Woolhouse. John Pask of Aldershot (Emily's great-great nephew) has been researching the Pask-Woolhouse family for over 25 years.

John advised us a few weeks ago that he has now received the bible (new testament).
