Pask Graves in Buninyong, Victoria, Australia

This information relates to Chart 23 - Descendants of Edward Pask (1771-1836) who lived in Barholm, Lincolnshire.

Our friends, and fellow Guild of One-Name Studies member, Ken Toll and his wife Jean recently visited Australia. During their stay they visited Buninyong, in the state of Victoria. Buninyong is ten minutes' south of Ballarat along the Midland Highway.  Gold was discovered there in 1851. They were looking for an elusive Toll grave. Unfortunately they did not find it. However fortunate for us, they found two Pask graves in the cemetery and kindly photographed them, and sent the photographs to us a couple of weeks ago.

The graves belonged to Lambert Pask (1831-1899) and his family, including his wife Charlotte Pask née Walsher (1833-1907), his son George (1856-1913), and George's wife Elizabeth Catherine Pask née Jenkin (1856-1936), and their daughter Hilda Rosamond (1887-1907).

The photographs are included in a web album.

Many thanks to Ken and Jean for providing these photographs.
