Isaac Pask

This information relates to a currently unidentified main branch of the family with roots in Cambridgeshire.

Colleen Willis wrote to me earlier this month about Isaac Pask, who was baptized on 21 May 1816 in Thorney, Cambridgeshire. He was the son of John & Ann Pask née Hilton.

Colleen had found Isaac in the Assisted British Immigration Index to Registers of Assisted British Immigrants 1839-1871, available at the Public Record Office Victoria, Australia. He had arrived on the Lady Macdonald in July 1852. Colleen also found that he died in 1878 aged 61.

I searched the records, and realised that Isaac was listed twice. This has been rectified and the records merged. Many thanks for Colleen in providing this information.
