Theophilus PASKE1,2

#1668, b. 23 February 1826, d. 18 October 1870
Last Edited=22 Jun 2014
     Theophilus PASKE was born on 23 February 1826 in Belgaum, Karnataka, India.1,2 He was the son of Colonel Thomas Theophilus PASKE and Susan Amelia GOLDINGHAM.1,2 He was baptised on 13 June 1826 in Belgaum, Karnataka, India.2
Theophilus was a Cadet, he resigned on 21 March 1855 between 1841 and 1842.2
Theophilus married Eliza ASHTON on 27 September 1854 in St. Mark's, Bangalore, Karnataka, India. He was a Bachelor of full age, a Lieutenant in the 12 Madras N.I. residing in Bangalore. His father was listed as Thomas Theophilus Paske. The marriage was witnessed by E. DUNBAR, J. HAY CAMPBELL, M. RYBAT, and Eleanor TRISE.2,3,4
His wife, Eliza, died circa 1860.5
Theophilus married Esther LATTER on 21 May 1862 in St. George's Church, Bloomsbury, London. He was a Widower of full age, an Esquire living at 28 Bedford Square. His father was listed as Thomas Theophilus Paske, a Colonel in the Madras Army. The marriage was witnessed by John TURNER, and Thos A. STAPLE, W. LATTER, and Eliza LATTER.6,7,8
In The Caledonia Mercury on 11 February 1864, the case of Welch v. Paske - Breach of Promise of Marriage, was reported between Miss Welch, and Mr Paske. It specifically refers to the fact that he had changed his name to HASELFOOT. Also that he had a considerable income, and that he was entitled to a reversion upon the death of a person eighty years old to a property of £2700 a year (an estimated £231,600.00 in today’s money). Theophilus in fact died at the age of 44 in 1870, before the inheritance was received. His son Robert inherited the estates from Miss Elizabeth Mary (otherwise Maria) Haselfoot in 1873.9,10,11 As of circa 1864, Theophilus changed his name to Theophilus PASKE-HASELFOOT.12,9


A dispute between the two brothers Theophilus, and John was reported in the Chelmsford Chronicle on 20 January 1865. It read:
"A VERY SAD CASE.—A GENTLEMAN ANNOYING HIS FAMILY.¯At the Brighton Police Court, on Thursday, John Paske, a common and dissipated looking person, was charged with annoying and threatening his brother, Mr. Theophilus Paske Haselfoot, and his wife, who are now residing at Court Cottage, Portslade. It was stated that the prisoner was a gentleman by birth, had been an officer in the army, and his brother was the heir to a large property on the death of a lady now 82 years of age, and in default of male issue the prisoner would become the rightful heir on the death of his brother. Prisoner had for many years been in the habit of following his brother about from place to place, holding out threats, and had been committed to prison in different places in default of finding sureties of the peace. His brother had come down to the quiet village of Portslade, hoping that the prisoner would not find him, but he succeeded in doing so, and went to the house on Tuesday and demanded admittance, and Mrs. Haselfoot had been compelled, without her child, to fly from the house and seek refuge at the residence of Sir Robert Nicholson in Brighton. Sir Robert went to Portslade to protect the brother, who was very ill and much alarmed, and prisoner went again, about eleven o'clock at night, and knocking violently at the door used the most violent language. Mrs. Haselfoot was near her confinement, and was afraid to return to Portslade. Prisoner had been allowed £100 a year, and an offer had been made that if he would select a home and give up his drunken habits everything should be done for his comfort and happiness. He now appeared very quiet and harmless, and said that he had no intention to create a disturbance—he merely went to seek reconciliation with his brother. He had been an officer in India, and had received an injury from sun-stroke. He very much regretted what had occurred, and hoped that the magistrates would send him to an asylum, where he had been once before, and where he was far better off than when rambling about the country.¯Mr. Scott told him that the magistrates had no power to do that, because he was evidently not in a state of mind to require the restraint of an asylum. ¯The prisoner was ordered to be bound over in £100, and to find two sureties in £100, to keep the peace for six months. He could not procure them, and was sent to Lewes Gaol in default. ¯West Sussex Gazette."13

Theophilus died on 18 October 1870 in Brentwood, Essex, at the age of 44.12
His estate was probated to Esther PASKE-HASELFOOT on 29 October 1870 in The Principal Registry, London.14

Miss Haselfoot succeeded to the family estates at Boreham and other properties on the death of her brother, Mr. Charles Haselfoot, in May, 1863, to whom the same came on the death of Robert Cleere Haselfoot, who died in July 1849. Miss Haselfoot was the last representative of the issue in direct descent of Mr. John Haselfoot, of London, who in the latter part of the 16th century married Alice, daughter and heiress of Sir Stephen Peacock. Knight, Lord Mayor of London, whose crest the Haselfoots adopted. The estates by Miss Haselfoot's death devolve upon Robert Theophilus Edward Paske Haselfoot, who is now about six years of age, and is the grandson of Colonel Thomas Theophilus Paske. The late Miss Haselfoot was most charitable and kind to the poor, and her many acts of unostentatious benevolence will long be remembered by the recipients of her bounty. As a proof of her consideration for the welfare of her poor neighbours, we understand that the deceased lady has by her will given legacies of £50 each to the parish school and to the poor of Boreham, her native village, and to the Chelmsford Dispensary. She was buried in the family vault at Boreham on Wednesday last. The funeral was attended by several relatives and friends amid unmistakable tokens of respect and & and regard for her memory."

John PASKE1,2,3

#1669, b. 1827, d. 1866
Last Edited=19 Jun 2014
     John PASKE was born in 1827 in St. Thomas' Mount, Madras, Tamil Nadu, India.1,2 He was the son of Colonel Thomas Theophilus PASKE and Susan Amelia GOLDINGHAM.1,2,3,4 He was baptised on 10 September 1827 in St. Thomas' Mount, Madras, Tamil Nadu, India.2,5,4 John was a Cadet in the India Army, between 1843 and 1844. However, he was dismissed from the Army on 19 September 1849.2,5,6


A dispute between the two brothers John, and Theophilus was reported in the Chelmsford Chronicle on 20 January 1865. It read:
"A VERY SAD CASE.—A GENTLEMAN ANNOYING HIS FAMILY.¯At the Brighton Police Court, on Thursday, John Paske, a common and dissipated looking person, was charged with annoying and threatening his brother, Mr. Theophilus Paske Haselfoot, and his wife, who are now residing at Court Cottage, Portslade. It was stated that the prisoner was a gentleman by birth, had been an officer in the army, and his brother was the heir to a large property on the death of a lady now 82 years of age, and in default of male issue the prisoner would become the rightful heir on the death of his brother. Prisoner had for many years been in the habit of following his brother about from place to place, holding out threats, and had been committed to prison in different places in default of finding sureties of the peace. His brother had come down to the quiet village of Portslade, hoping that the prisoner would not find him, but he succeeded in doing so, and went to the house on Tuesday and demanded admittance, and Mrs. Haselfoot had been compelled, without her child, to fly from the house and seek refuge at the residence of Sir Robert Nicholson in Brighton. Sir Robert went to Portslade to protect the brother, who was very ill and much alarmed, and prisoner went again, about eleven o'clock at night, and knocking violently at the door used the most violent language. Mrs. Haselfoot was near her confinement, and was afraid to return to Portslade. Prisoner had been allowed £100 a year, and an offer had been made that if he would select a home and give up his drunken habits everything should be done for his comfort and happiness. He now appeared very quiet and harmless, and said that he had no intention to create a disturbance—he merely went to seek reconciliation with his brother. He had been an officer in India, and had received an injury from sun-stroke. He very much regretted what had occurred, and hoped that the magistrates would send him to an asylum, where he had been once before, and where he was far better off than when rambling about the country.¯Mr. Scott told him that the magistrates had no power to do that, because he was evidently not in a state of mind to require the restraint of an asylum. ¯The prisoner was ordered to be bound over in £100, and to find two sureties in £100, to keep the peace for six months. He could not procure them, and was sent to Lewes Gaol in default. ¯West Sussex Gazette."7

John's death was registered in 1866 in the Ipswich registration district.8,9 John was buried on 14 April 1866 in The Cemetery, Ipswich, Suffolk.8

Major-General William PASKE1,2,3,4,5

#1670, b. 20 May 1828, d. 29 February 1908
Last Edited=1 Jun 2016
     Major-General William PASKE was born on 20 May 1828 in St. Thomas' Mount, Madras, Tamil Nadu, India. His father was a Colonel in the Madras Horse Artillery.1,2,3,6,7,8,4 He was the son of Colonel Thomas Theophilus PASKE and Susan Amelia GOLDINGHAM.1,2,3,8 He was baptised on 25 October 1828 in St. Thomas' Mount, Madras, Tamil Nadu, India.3,7,8

On 10 July 1832, at the age of only 4, he sailed to England aboard the Claudine, to be brought up free of the privations of life in India, and was educated at Kensington Grammar School, and at Brighton.7,5

William started his Army career at the age of 16, when he was nominated for a cadetship in the Honourable East India Company (HEIC) in the 1844 season. He was allocated as a cadet to the Bengal Presidency and arrived at Calcutta aboard the Madagascar in June 1845. He was first attached to the 66th Bengal Native Infantry and later moved to the 28th Native Infantry. He saw service during the Second Anglo-Sikh War with the 28th N.I. which made up part of the Jullunder Doab force under Brigadier (later Major-General, Sir) Hugh Massey Wheeler in the campaign against Ram Singh, between 1848 and 1849. He subsequently earned the Punjab Campaign Medal without a clasp. His obituary in The London Times, dated 2nd March 1908, sheds valuable light on a small yet interesting anecdote regarding the issue of his Punjab Campaign Medal:
"The death of Major-General William Paske, which took place on Saturday at 30, Elgin-crescent, W., removes another name from the fast dwindling list of officers who served in the Sutlej Campaign, and in the Punjab in 1848-49…During the Punjab campaign General Paske served with General Wheeler’s column and it is a curious fact that he only received his medal for this campaign in October of last year [1907], 59 years after the campaign."

In a number of (later) contemporary sources, it has been hinted that William saw service during the first Anglo-Sikh War (December 1845 – February 1846); he would have certainly been in the region during this period, however, neither the 66th or 28th Bengal N.I. took part in any of the major actions of the war; one can therefore surmise he was probably only stationed along the Anglo-Sikh border during the conflict and, as a result, wasn’t eligible to apply for the Sutlej Campaign Medal.
In 1850, following the official annexation of the Punjab, William was appointed to the Frontier Force as adjutant to the 3rd Punjab Infantry which had been formed from the remnants of The Khalsa (the Sikh army), promoted Lieutenant on 1st May 1852, and took part in several campaigns and expeditions against the Hill Tribes on the Peshawar (Northwest) Frontier, including:
The expedition to Turangai against the Ranizais, between 11th and 22nd March 1852, under Sir Colin Campbell KCB (later Lord Clyde).
Dargai Expedition
The Shirani expedition, between 30th March and 2nd April 1853, under Brigadier-General J.S. Hodgson.
The Eusuffzaie Expedition under Lord Clyde

When stationed at Cawnpore, he had personal acquaintance with the Nana Sahib of Bithur, who showed great friendship for the officers of William's regiment and often dined in their mess. The Nana would later rise to infamy during the Indian Mutiny in 1857 as the “Butcher of Cawnpore”, when he was implicated in ordering the massacres of British women and children at that station and becoming one of the figure-heads of the rebellion.7,5,4

William married Eliza SMALLEY on 5 April 1854 in St. George's Cathedral, Madras, Tamil Nadu, India.9,10,11,7

In June 1855 they returned to Bengal via Calcutta aboard the steamer Oriental. In late 1855 he passed, with honours, the examination for civil employment, and was soon after appointed an Assistant Commissioner in the Punjab Commission. Their first daughter, Agnes Amelia, was born on 7th December 1856 and baptised on 10th May 1857 in Hoshiarpur, Punjab, where William was serving as an Assistant Deputy Commissioner.7,5

In 1857, when news of the mutiny at Delhi reached Hoshiarpur, precautions were taken by officials to prevent it spreading to the Punjab. William is known to have been employed in watching and pursuing mutineers and mutinous regiments in flight; notably commanding a detachment in pursuit of the Jullundur rebels in 1858. He received the special thanks of the Secretary of State for India, the Governor-General of India and the Chief Commissioner of the Punjab, Sir John Lawrence, for discovering and frustrating a plot formed by the Left Wing of the 4th Bengal N.I. at Hoshiarpur, to murder their Officers and all the Europeans in the station, including his own family. He was subsequently promoted Captain in the 28th Bengal N.I. on 4th June 1857.

A contemporary account summarises events in the region during the Mutiny:
"Some native troops were quartered at Hooshiarpore, and the Deputy Commissioner, Colonel Abbott, proceeded to strengthen the Tahsil, and remove into it two guns from the lines of the native troops of Horse Artillery, where they were in dangerous proximity to the 33rd Native Infantry. The Post Office was removed from Cantonments to the Civil Lines, and a system of night patrolling was organized by the Deputy Commissioner with his Assistants, Lieutenants W. Paske and F.J. Millar. The station was guarded by about 800 men of the Ahluwalia, Rajauri, Mandi and Tiwana troops, by new levies, and by part of the Sherdil Battalion of the Bajwara Fort, which was adapted to answer the use of a jail and fortress, and garrisoned by police instead of by the usual guard of the 33rd Native Infantry. A conspiracy was discovered amongst the prisoners, and the five ringleaders were executed. The only disturbances in the district were caused by servants from Simla, who spread exaggerated reports of the panic at that station, and by a party of the Jullundur Mutineers, who marched 130 miles (208 km) in 54 hours, and escaped along the hills across the Sutlej before notice had reached headquarters.

William remained in the Punjab Commission until the end of his service, and was well known in Simla as its zealous Assistant Commissioner. In 1869 he went to Jhelum as Deputy Commissioner. In 1870 he came to England on leave, and on medical advice sent in his papers. He was then placed on the retired list after 40 years of arduous service.7,5,1,3

In the census of 2 April 1871 in The Grange, Clapham, London, William was listed as aged 42 born in India, the Head of Household; a Lt. Col. H.M. Madras Army, living with his wife Eliza and children Agnes A., Annie E., Arther [Arthur] G., George F., Robert M., and Mabel M. Also listed was two servants.10 At the time of the death of his sister Fanny, he was a Major-General in the Bengal Staff Corps, and lived at The Lodge, Southall, Middlesex.12
His sister's, Fanny Haselfoot PASKE, estate was probated to him on 29 October 1880 in The Principal Registry, London.13

In the census of 3 April 1881 in South Lodge, Norwood, Middlesex, William was listed as aged 52 born in Madras India, the Head of Household; a Major General Bengal Army Retired List, living with his wife Eliza and children Agnes A., Annie E., Arthur G., George F., Mabel M., and Theophilus E. Also listed was three servants.6
His wife, Eliza, died in May 1882 in the Uxbridge registration district.7,14

William married Anna SCHADE on 28 November 1896 in The Parish Church, Kensington, London. He was a Major General Retired, a Widower aged 68, residing at 30 Elgin Crescent, Kensington. His father was listed as Theophilus Paske Deceased, a Colonel. The marriage was witnessed by George Frederick Pask [son], and Agnes Werninck [daughter], and L. Hughes Hewitt?15,16,17
In the census of 31 March 1901 in 30 Elgin Crescent, Notting Hill, London, William was listed as aged 48 [incorrectly enumerated - his age was infact 72] born in India, the Head of Household; a Major General Army Officer, living with his wife Anna, and children Annie, Reginald Pearson, and Frederic. Also listed was three servants.18 He made a will dated 18 June 1905. He was residing at that time at 30 Elgin Crescent, Notting Hill, London.19
In 1907, his son, Major A.G. Paske, published a book detailing William's services during the Mutiny. It was called "Sixty Years Ago", and tells the story of Major General William Paske's services in India, during the mutiny, in the Bengal Presidency and his experiences and trying adventures for many years. A copy of the book is available in the University of Texas Library.7

William died on 29 February 1908 at 30 Elgin Crescent, Notting Hill, London, at the age of 79.1,20,21,5,22
His death was reported in the Dundee Courier on 2 March 1908, it read:
MUTINY VETERAN DEAD
MAJOR-GENERAL PASKE'S STIRRING CAREER.
Major-General William Paske, an Indian Mutiny veteran, died on Saturday evening at his residence, 30 Elgin Crescent, Nottingham Hill, London.
On February 22 the deceased officer had the misfortune to fall from his chair and fracture his thigh.
The late Major-General Paske was born at Madras on the 20th May, 1828, and was therefore in his eightieth year at the time of his death. He was educated at Kensington Grammar School and at Brighton. As a delicate boy of 16 years he went out to India with other cadets, being wrecked on the passage out.
He took part in the Sutlej campaign in 1845, and fought in the Punjab and West Frontier campaign. Captain Paske served with particular distinction in the Mutiny, being mentioned in despatches and receiving the thanks of the Secretary for India, the Governor-General, and the Lieutenant-Govenor for India. During the Mutiny he was frequently in tight corners.
It was only a few weeks ago, sixty years after he had earned it, that the gallant officer received his Punjab medal.22

His obituary was reported in The Times on 2 March 1908, it read:
The death of MAJOR-GENERAL WILLIAM PASKE, which took place on Saturday at 30, Elgin-crescent, W., removes another name from the fast dwindling list of officers who served in the Sutlej Campaign, and in the Punjab in 1848-49. The late major-general, who was a son of Colonel T.T. Paske, of the Madras Horse Artillery, was born at Madras in 1828. He was educated at Kensington Grammar School and at Brighton. At the age of 16 he was given a cadetship in the East India company's army, and sailed for India in 1845. He was first attached to the 66th Bengal Native Infantry, but was finally posted to the 28th Native Infantry. When stationed at Cawnpur he had personal acquaintance with the Nana Saheb of Bilhur, who showed great friendship for the officers of General Paske's regiment, and who "often dined in their mess." During the Punjab campaign General Paske served with General Wheeler's Column, and it is a curious fact that he only received his medal for this campaign in October of last year, 59 years after the campaign. In 1850 General Paske was appointed to the Frontier Force and joined the 3rd Punjab Infantry as adjutant. After five years of exciting service on the frontier, which included the Isufzai Expedition, he passed with honours the examination for civil employment, and was appointed an Assistant Commissioner. When the Mutiny broke out he was at Hushiarpur, and for his services during this trying period he received the special thanks of the Governor-General in Council. General Paske remained in the Punjab Commission until the end of his service, and was well known in Simla as its zealous Assistant Commissioner. In 1869 he went to Jhelum as Deputy Commissioner. In 1870 he went to England on furlough, and on medical advice sent in his papers. He was then placed on the retired list after 40 years' arduous service.5

His estate was probated on 10 April 1908 in London to his son, Major Arthur Goldingham PASKE.21,19

Information on William Paske is available on the DNW Auction Archive website. It reads:
Major-General William Paske
William Paske was born on 20 May 1828 and baptised in Madras. He was commissioned an Ensign in the Indian Army on 11 February 1845. He was promoted to Lieutenant in May 1852, Captain, in the Bengal Staff Corps in June 1857, Captain in the Army, July 1858, Major in February 1865, Lieutenant-Colonel in February 1871 and Colonel in February 1876. Paske retired with the rank of Colonel on 14 August 1876 and on 28 October 1876 was promoted to Major-General. In the 2nd Sikh War, he served with the 28th Bengal Native Infantry in the force under General Sir H. M. Wheeler against the forces of Ram Singh. During 1850-53 he served in the expedition against the Ranezais and other hill tribes on the N.W. Frontier. In the suppression of the Indian Mutiny he was employed in watching and pursuing mutineers and mutinous regiments in flight. He received the thanks of the Secretary of State for India, the Governor-General and Chief Commander of the Punjab, for his assistance in suppressing the mutiny in the wing of the 4th Native Infantry at Hooshyarporein 1858. Latterly living in Elgin Crescent, Kensington, he died on 29 February 1908. Sold with framed photograph of the recipient in uniform; commission documents (10) for the ranks of Ensign (2), Lieutenant (2), Captain (3), Major, Lieutenant-Colonel and Colonel; an ‘In Memoriam’ card for his wife Eliza, who died in May 1882, and some copied research.23


Research Note: There seems to be inconsistencies in the 1901 census. It is listed that William, and his wife Anna were aged 48. This was probably to cover up that there was a 41-year gap between them. His children were still living with him, and their ages were also adjusted. If he was 48, he would have been too young to have his adult children.24,18

Edward Lake PASKE1,2

#1675, d. 9 June 1886
Last Edited=4 Oct 2015
     Edward Lake PASKE was the son of Colonel Edward Hanson PASKE and Amelia Catherine JERVOIS.1
Edward died on 9 June 1886 in Nelson, New Zealand. His death was reported in the Evening Post on 15 June 1886 "A verdict of death from exposure was returned at the inquest of the bodies of Messrs. Paske and Thompson, surveyors who died from exposure in Clarence Valley ...."2,3,4,5
His death was reported in the Taranaki Herald, Taranaki, New Zealand on 22 June 1886, it read:
SURVEY PARTY IN A SNOWSTORM.
TWO LIVES LOST.
-------
A DISASTROUS JOURNEY.
The disastrous occurrence on the East Coast of the eruption of Tarawora quite threw into the shade the equally appalling affair in the South Island, when a party out surveying were caught in a snowstorm, and two of them perished. From the Christchurch Telegraph we gather the following particulars of the disaster, and as several of the party are known in New Plymouth, the account, we feel sure, will be read with interest : - A surveyor's party, of which Mr. F. Stephenson Smith, District Surveyor, was in charge, included the two deceased, Messrs. Edward Lister Paske (a nephew of his Excellency Sir William Jervois), and Hugh James Thompson, and Messrs Begley, F. S. Smith, Ward, McKay, Hodges, Mitchell, left Lake Guyon on the morning of June 9th about 10.30. The party also consisted of ten men, with ten horses, and it was their intention to cross Fowler's Pass and go down Jack's Pass that day. At the time of departure snow was falling, when they saw the last of Lake Guyon, and it continued to fall more or less throughout the whole distance. Arriving at Mr. Fowler's woolshed, the party rested for a few minutes and unanimously decided that there was no apparent hindrance to their progress towards St. James - twelve miles distance. Therefore, at 2.30 p.m., the men, anxious to get forward, started. The horses were sent on in front, and the party went off in detachments. Mr. Stephenson Smith, Mr. Paske, and Mr. Begley were the last to leave. They expected tab at any time they could overtake the horses. Mr; Smith and Mr. Begley pressed Mr. Paske to ride, but the latter stated he felt strong and hearty and the walk would keep up circulation better than riding on horseback would. Mr. Smith noticed that Mr. Paske was thinly clad. After going some distance they found the snow had drifted; and that they were in the midst of a blinding snowstorm. It varied in depth from 3ft. to 5 ft. They had come up to Mr. Thompson and another part of the party, and he volunteered to go ahead and look for the horses. Mr. Stephenson Smith pointed out that it might not be wise to lose each other. Mr. Paske shortly after this appeared to become delirious, but as his reason returned his strength seemed to fail him, and he became exhausted. Hodges, Ward, and McKay then were told off to push ahead for help, and, if possible, get on to St. James's Station. After being so left, Messrs. Stephenson Smith, Begley, and Thompson supported Mr. Paske by getting his arms around their necks, but the effort was too much for them to sustain for any length of time in so heavy a depth of snow. They tried to keep him warm by getting close to him and chafing his limbs. Mr. Begley covered him with his coat, and both made almost superhuman efforts to carry the suffering gentleman, who, losing the power of his legs, at last lay down. His companions bravely decided to stay with him, and lay beside him till he died. They then stretched the body out in the snow, placed Mr. Bogley's coat over it, and placed their sticks at the head and feet, so as to find it again. Immediately almost on starting for St. James Mr. Thompson showed signs of exhaustion, and they tried to carry him in the same way as they had done with the first victim to this sad winter's night. They alternately carried and encouraged him to walk by clearing the snow in front as well as they were able, till they also seemed nearly done up, and on, looking round in the clear moonlight they could see, during a slight lull in the storm, the dark coat over Mr. Paske's corpse, not more than 150 yards away. With such slow progress for two hours' hard work, and with their clothing freezing to them all the time, their efforts to save their unfortunate comrades well nigh exhausted them. In the meanwhile Mr. Mitchell had reached St. James' with the horses, and informed those at the house of the state of affairs. A man named John Campbell took out the cart horses to go in search, and shortly after starting Campbell came on the pack-horses, and in two miles met with Messrs Hodges, McKay, and Ward, gave them some spirits and refreshment, and pushed, on to ascertain the fate of Messrs Stephenson Smith, Begley, Thompson, and Paske. He found the latter quite dead. Campbell got the remainder on his two horses - Messrs Smith and Begley on one and Mr. Thompson and himself on the other. Mr. Thompson had to be lifted on, and died in his arms as they were making for the station. On the way back they came on Messrs. Hodges and McKay, who had only gone about 200 yards. They went on to the station and returned for these men. It was stated in evidence that the men's frozen trousers had to be cut off their legs. But for John Campbell's praiseworthy conduct those who came in last must have perished. At the inquest on the bodies the Jury found a verdict of " Death from exposure," but expressed themselves in terms of praise regarding the efforts of Messrs Stephenson Smith and Begley, and also considered Mr. Campbell's conduct most praiseworthy.6

His death was announced in the London Standard, London on 31 July 1886;
PASKE.--June 9, frozen in a snowstorm in the mountains of Nelson District, New Zealand, Edward Lake Paske, Esq., Government Survey Department, eldest son of Colonel E. H. Paske of Merrow, Guildford, aged 25 years.7

His estate was probated to Emily Jervois PASKE on 3 February 1908 in London.2
