Descendants of Augustine Thomas & Jane Pask née Parry

This information relates to a descendant of the Monmouthshire progenitor Isaac Paske, (c1705 - ) who lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire.

Whilst including one of the tributes from the website Lasting Tribute, we identified that Jeffery Pask (1938-2009) from Swansea was the son of William Henry & Margaret Pask née Millman. However we did not know who his father William's parents were.

After checking in the 1911 census, it was realised that his parents were Augustine Thomas & Jane Pask née Parry. William Henry, and his brother Augustine Clifford (known as Clifford), were living in Nantyffyllon Glamorganshire, with their widowed mother Jane Thomas née Parry, and half-brothers Fredy, Robert, and Ivor Thomas. After the death of their father Augustine in 1896 she had married Frederick William Thomas.

William's father Augustine had died at the early age of 32. He was employed as a Carpenter at the New Post Office, Westgate Street, Cardiff. On the 21 December 1895 by some means the scaffolding gave way and he fell to the floor across some girders. He was picked up unconscious and conveyed to the infirmary where he died from the injuries received at 7am on the 12 January 1896.

This links William Henry to the main Monmouthshire progenitor Isaac Paske.
This information will be included in the next website update.
