George & Sarah Ann Pask née Newton

This information relates to Chart 18 , Joseph Pask, (1761 - 1831) who lived in Caythorpe, Lincolnshire.

Yesterday we received a transcript of the marriage of George Pask and Sarah Ann Newton that took place on 18 August 1896 in the parish of Colyton, Devon. George was residing at the time in Belper Derbyshire. He was a Foreman Platelayer at that time, so inevitably his job on the railway must have taken him to Devon.

I have managed to find them in the 1901 census living in Belper, and then in the 1911 census in Romiley, Cheshire. They had three children Lily (1897-1994), Ida Lucy (1899-1997), and George (1906-1974).

George & Sarah finally lived in the Coalville registration district, where they both reached their nineties. Sarah died in 1952, and George in 1967 after 56 years of marriage.

The marriage transcript was kindly provided by Des Gander as a result of the Guild of One-Name Studies (GOONS) Marriage Challenge for Axminster registration district. The Marriage Challenge is a Guild Project in which volunteers (Challengers) search for marriage entries in the deposited Parish Registers for a particular Registration District (RD) for the period 1837 to 1911.

This information will be included in the next website update.
