Descendants of John & Annie Pask née Abbott

This information relates to the main Lincolnshire tree - descendants of Johannis [John] & Elizabeth Pask née Archer, who lived in Lincolnshire.

Recently we have been focusing our research on Leicestershire, and linking together families who lived there in the 1900-1930s - in particular Blaby, Lutterworth and Leicester registration districts.

Subsequently we have established that most of them link back to John & Annie Pask née Abbott. John orginated from Nocton Lincolnshire, and was the third son of Henry & Elizabeth Pask née Asman. We originally researched this family back in 2004, and with recent available records like the 1911 census we have been able to put together quite a lot of additional information.

John married Annie Abbott on 17 November 1891 in the Lutterworth registration district. They had 11 children. In the 1911 census he was a Shepherd, living with his wife Annie, and his children John, Frank, Edith, Alfred, Ethel, Edward, Richard, and Frederick. So this valuable information provided the connection between those children born between 1901 and 1913.

We also purchased two GRO certificates to help us establish a connection:

  1. Birth of Ivan Michael Pask in 1937
  2. Marriage of Arthur C. Pask & Jessie M. Tomlinson in 1927

The GRO reference for Ivan, who was later known as Michael Ivan, gave his mother's maiden as Ellis. However we could not locate his parent's marriage. The birth certificate gave that he was born 20 May 1937, and he was the son of Edward & Annie Elizabeth Pask née Ellis formerly Baker. Based on this we easily found their marriage in 1936 in the Spilsby, Lincolnshire registration district. Edward was the fifth son of John & Annie Pask née Abbott.

The marriage gave the name of Arthur Charles, however this is probably an error in the transcription from the church marriage register to the civil registration certificate. Arthur was actually called Alfred Charles Pask, he was the fourth son of John & Annie Pask née Abbott.

We have now included in our database all 1837-1984 birth, marriages, and deaths in the Blaby, Lutterworth and Leicester registration districts. Wherever practicable we have researched the families through to current day. These will be included in Chart 03 in the next website update.
