Pasks of Monmouthshire

This information relates to the Monmouthshire progenitor Isaac Paske, (c1705 - ) who lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire. Also it refers to
William Pask (c1720- ) who lived in Cwmcarvan, Monmouthshire.

Yesterday, Sylvia Rycroft updated us on her latest trip to Monmouthshire to research the parish records at the Gwent RO. Sylvia also purchased all the remaining Paske Wills.

As a consequence, the wills have thrown up some interesting information on various Monmouthshire families. From these wills she has established, changes to the following:

The wills have also enabled Sylvia to piece together some of the other Paske families, but not to absolutely reveal where they fitted within the wider family group. There are still some pieces missing from the jigsaw and they may never be found because the records do not exist.

So if you are a descendant of the Pasks of Monmouthshire, check out the revised Monmouthshire Main Progenitor: Isaac PASK, (c1705 - ) lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire #3687 (Chart 4), and Chart 42: William PASK (c1720- ) lived in Cwmcarvan, Monmouthshire #10869, as there has been a reassignment of several families.

The PASKs of Monmouthshire book will be revised after the Pask Family Gathering. However, we are working on the charts and these will be on display on the day.

With so many Williams born in the period, and living in the same area, it is no wonder that the wrong assumptions have been made.

We look forward to meeting Sylvia, and her second cousin Diane on July 26 at the Pask Family Gathering.
