Ellen Gask, my grandmothers youngest sister married Christopher Bassett in Leicestershire England. They emigrated to South Africa about 1900. Their son, Jack Gask Bassett was born March 1903-4 I believe in Johannesburg died 13 July, 1889 in Wynberg, Cape Town. About 1925 he married Gladys Marion Parker of, I believe, Kimberly, Northern Cape. Gladys died 11 December, 1988 at Wynberg, Cape Town.
If their is any one who has information on the families I would be delighted to hear from them.When I was very young my grandmother read me letters from her sister in Africa but at that age did not really remember the content.
