Descendants of Isaac Paske of Kilgwrrwg, Monmouthshire

This information relates to Chart 15, Isaac Paske,
(c1800-) who lived in Kilgwrrwg, Monmouthshire.

Paula Payne has provided me with a marriage in Mathern Church, on 5 May 1814 of Mary Pask & James Lewis. Paula's ancestors Isaac Pask, and Elizabeth Stephens were witnesses. This was a week before they married. Isaac & Mary were cousins. Mary was the daughter of William & Ann Pask née Thomas.

Paula also found in the same church, the marriage of Isaac Pask to Mary Morgan on 16 November 1818. This marriage was witnessed by Thomas Stephens & Mary Lewis [née Pask].

I searched the 1841 census, and found James & Mary Lewis living in Kilgwrrwg, in the household of Ann Pask, aged 84. Living nearby was Isaac's widow Mary Pask [now known to be Mary née Morgan].
This provides us with the missing link that Isaac's mother was Ann Pask née Thomas.

Chart 15, is now merged with Chart 4. Ann Pask née ? #5845, is also merged with Ann Pask née Thomas. This information will be included in the next website update.

Another major brickwall broken. Many thanks Paula.
