Descendants of John & Anne Pask née Thomas

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

Recently we have been corresponding with John Powell, who is the descendant of John & Anne Pask née Thomas of Aberystruth, Monmouthshire.

John has provided a birth, and marriage certificate of their daughter Elvira who was born on 7 November 1845 in Ebbw Vale, Aberystruth Monmouthshire. Elvira married William Thomas on 17 November 1866 in Sharon Chapel, Ebbw Vale, Monmouthshire.

In addition John provided the marriage certificate of John & Anne, who married on 7 June 1840 in The Parish Church, Aberystruth. His father was listed as James Pask, a Paper-Maker. This is an usual occupation, and we have not come across a Pask in this occupation.

Although we have extensively searched the censuses, and baptisms in this area, we cannot find James. If anyone can help on this, am I sure that John will really appreciate it. We all hate mysteries, and brickwalls.

The information that John has provided, together with the certificates, will be available in the next website update.
