John Pask (1825-1913)

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

As mentioned in an earlier blog, Colleen Willis wrote to me at the beginning of this month about Isaac Pask. Additionally, Colleen provided me information on John Pask of Ulladula. She wrote:

Regarding the John Pask at UllaDulla, his death is recorded 1913 (ref, 2880/1913 N.S.W. bdm Milton) Milton and Ulladulla are bordering places on the south coast of New South Wales. His parents George and Elizabeth. I think this would be the
John pask born c 1825 to George and Elizabeth (Ong) in Suffolk. I presume he did not marry. He arrived in 1855 age 28 on the Victory (N.S.W. State records film 2137/2472).
John was the son of George & Elizabeth Pask née Ong, and a descendant of Henry & Frances Paske née Wallaker who lived in Kedington, Suffolk.

Many thanks to Colleen for this additional information. It will be included in the next website update.
