James Pask b1871 Bury St. Edmunds

This information relates to the main Suffolk tree - descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow, born c1680 who lived in Wickhambrook, Suffolk.

Yesterday we received an e-mail from Geoff & Pam Gough. Fortunately they solved a long outstanding mystery relating to James Pask, the son of John & Susan Pask née Buckle.

We had found James in the 1881 & 1891 censuses, but not in the 1901 census. There was additional confusion as there was two James born in Bury St. Edmunds - James in 1871 and James Henry in 1872.

Fortunately we found him in the 1911 census living in St. Pancras. This in turn, enabled us to locate him in the 1901 census, where he gave his place of birth incorrectly as London. Together with the information provided by Geoff & Pam, we have been able to piece together that he married Katherine Markell in 1893, and they had five children:

  1. Lily Florence Pask born 1894
  2. Gladys Ethel Pask born 1896
  3. Dorothy Maud Pask born 1903 (Pam's grandmother)
  4. Ivy Molly Francis Pask born 1907
  5. Katie Maria Pask born in 1910

James' siblings have been well researched by Dorothy Pask, and David Hodge.

Geoff & Pam will be providing more information in due course. In the meantime, the next website update will include the basic information on this latest find.
