Caroline Matilda Garrett née Pask (1808-1881)

This information relates to Chart 6 - Unknown Pask who lived in Kedington, Suffolk.

We received an inquiry from Jan Humphries from Australia, relating to her ancestor Caroline Matilda Garrett née Pask born 1808 in London.

Jan wrote:
"Caroline Matilda Pask married John Wells Garrett on 24 October 1825.  The witnesses at the wedding were Henry Frost Pask and Ann Pask. Henry was the fifth child of Peter Pask and Rebecca Basham and was born in 1799. There was then a gap of a number of years until the birth of Maria Louisa Pask b1815 Christchurch, Newgate. The family seems to have moved to London and I have been unable to find the birth of Caroline Matilda – any suggestions?  The first child of Henry Frost Pask was called Caroline Matilda also."
Unfortunately, I did not find Caroline's baptism. However, I did find several of her children's baptisms, and the family in the 1841-1871 censuses. This information will be included in the Pask database in the near future.

Many thanks to Jan for providing this missing link.
