Descendants of John James & Elsie Pask née Pask

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

A couple of weeks ago you may recall we were in contact with twins John David Pask, and David John Pask, whose parents were both Pasks, second cousins Harold "Charlie" William Pask, and Doris Joan Pask. See blog titled Descendants of Albert & Ann Pask née Reeves.

Suprisingly, a few days later we heard from Debbie Pask, whose grandparents were also both Pasks, cousins John James Pask & Elsie Pask.

It is very difficult to determine whether the children with the mother's name of Pask belongs to a family, or that they were born illegitimately to a Pask female. Based on information from Debbie, we have been able to identify eight children:

  1. Violet May Pask
  2. Phyllis Pask
  3. Rose Ellen Pask
  4. Kay Lorraine Pask
  5. Olive Pask
  6. John R. Pask
  7. Gordon Pask
  8. Maurice Pask (Debbie's father)
This gave us some great leads, and this family has now expanded considerably. Many thanks to Debbie for these missing links.
