Whitechapel Registration District Marriages

This information relates to Chart 10, the descendants of John Pask (1771 - 1847) of Thundersley, Essex.

We have just received three marriage transcripts, provided by Howard Benbrook, as part of the Whitechapel Registration District Marriage Challenge.

The Marriage Challenge is a Guild of One-Name Studies (GOONS) Project in which volunteers (Challengers) search for marriage entries in the deposited Parish Registers for a particular Registration District for the period 1837 to 1911.

Howard has kindly provided the following marriages from Christ Church Parish Church, Spitalfields:

We believe the marriages are all related, as in all instances, the father's name was John Pask a Shoe Maker, and two marriages were connected by the witnesses. However, until now we were not aware of the connections.

Many thanks to Howard for providing these marriage transcripts. They have enabled us to piece together more information on this London-based family, who originated from Thundersley.

The detailed information from these marriage transcripts will be available in the next website update.
