Philip & Rosetta Pask née Keen

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

Last week we had an e-mail from Stephen Daglish, a fellow Guild of One-Name Studies (GOONs) member. He noticed a Pask grave in South Ealing Cemetery. It read:

In loving memory of
Thomas Charles
son of Philip & Rosetta Pask
who died June 24th 1892
aged 12 years and 4 months

also of Rosetta Sophia Pask
sister of the above
who died July 6th 1903
in her 38th year

Alfred James Pask
who died May 19th 1907, aged 25 years

Philip & Rosetta Pask née Keen lived in Ealing Middlesex. Philip originated from Hargrave Suffolk, and was the son of Oliver & Sophia Pask née Suttle. He was the 2 x greatgrandson of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow.

We located them in the census of 2 April 1911 in 10 St. Matthews Road, Ealing, Middlesex. Philip was listed as aged 71 born in Hargrave Suffolk, the Head of Household; a Gardener, living with his wife Rosetta and daughter Melinda. Also listed was his daughter-in-law Lily (his son Joseph Philip's wife), and grandchildren Eric Joseph, and Winifred Lily.

Joseph his son was listed at 37 Caerleon Road, Newport, Monmouthshire, where he was listed as a Machine Foreman in the Printing Industry. His wife Lily May was his cousin, she was the daughter of Nathan Oliver & Susannah Pask née Philipps. Both his children Eric & Winifred were born in Newport.

Many thanks to Stephen Daglish, for providing the cemetery information - this lead us to link together several missing pieces.
