Arthur William & Phoebe Giles née Pask

This information relates to the red-icon tree - descendants of Isaac PASK who lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire.

Janet Loucks née Giles wrote to me in July, and explained:

My grandmother (Phoebe) married Arthur William Giles in Newport in 1897. They had one son, Arthur Richard Vincent Giles who was born 1902 in Newport. Phoebe and A.R. Vincent Giles emigrated to Prince George, BC Canada in 1919 after the death of Arthur William Giles. A.R.Vincent Giles married and had 3 children.

Phoebe was the daughter of Zachariah & Phoebe Paske née Jenkins. She was the 3 x great-granddaughter of the main progenitor in Monmouthshire, Isaac Pask.

I searched the passenger lists on for Phoebe's and Arthur's passage to Canada, but unfortunately could not locate them.

In the process of updating Phoebe's information, I also found her sister Mary married Alfred Gain, or Gaine in 1877, and they had two children Elizabeth Ann, and John Alfred.

This information will be available in the next website update. Many thanks to Janet for providing this information.
