Descendants of John Frederick & Fanny Pask née Melbourn

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

Last week we received information from George Buckberry, who has traced his family back to Robert Buckberry, who was born in c1490. Ellen Buckberry married John Frederick Pask, also known as Frederick Andrews, and John Frederick Andrews.

John's first wife was Fanny Melbourn, they married in Sleaford in 1888. They had three children:

  1. John William Pask (1889-1968)
  2. Charles Henry Pask (25 Nov 1891-1969)
  3. James Melbourn Pask (1894-13 Oct 1915)
Fanny died in 1894 and was buried on 10 November 1894 in St. Andrew's, Cranwell, Lincolnshire. John later married Ellen Buckberry on 17 June 1902 in St. Andrews, Leasingham, Lincolnshire.
As we had not researched this family for some time, together with George's assistance we found a lot more information.
John's mother Harriet Pask married James Andrews in 1869, and they had 10 children. Interestingly, one of John's half-sisters was Mary Andrews who married John Melbourn in 1897 in the Sleaford registration district. It is very likely that John Melbourn and Fanny Melbourn were siblings, who married siblings John Pask and Mary Andrews.

This information will be included in the web update today. Many thanks to George for helping us reconstruct this family.
