William Pask born c1860 in Southery Lincolnshire

This information relates to Chart 46: William Pask (1860-1914) born in Southery Lincolnshire #1470.

As detailed in several previous blogs, Chris Bell is researching her great-grandparents William & Grace Isabella Pask née Solomon. Fortunately the recent release of the 1911 census has finally resolved whether William was born in Southery Lincolnshire, or Southery Norfolk. The 1911 Census shows him as born in 1860 in Southery Lincolnshire. The website will be updated in the next release.

Southery, also known as Southrow is a hamlet near Bardney. This will enable Chris to focus her research in this area. Unfortunately his baptism, and his marriage to Grace still remains elusive.

There was a William Pask born in 1862 in Bardney, but this is not him, as this William lived, and died in the Chorlton on Medlock registration district, where he married Elizabeth Cookson, and then after her death, Elizabeth's sister Emma Cookson.
