Chart 51 - Descendants of Joseph & Mary Pask

This information relates to Chart 51, the descendants of John & Mary Pask who lived in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire in the 1840-1860s.

A new chart will be available in the next update - Chart 51. Whilst this is a small chart, it contains seven generations. We have compiled it in the hope of identifying where Joseph originated from, and his link to one of the major trees.

From the 1851 census for Hooks Drove, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, Joseph was listed as aged 65 born in Thorney, the Head of Household. He was living together with his wife Mary, who was born in Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire. She died in 1853 in the Wisbech registration district, and Joseph died in 1859.

We are trying to establish when they married (c1825), and what Mary's maiden name was.

Their only son John married Emily Liquorice on 17 July 1861 in St. Mary, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. John & Emily have currently 14 known descendants.

This information will be included in the next website update.
