Charles Pasher 134
- Born: Abt 1794, Jersey, Channel Islands
- Marriage: Jane Corneaux
Another name for Charles was Charles Perchard.
The names of many of the inhabitants of Conception Bay are reminiscent of the Channel Islands. Gushue (Guizot), Puddister (Poingd'estre), Pasher (Perchard), Hookey (Le Huquet), Le Grow (Le Gros), Fillier (Fillenl), Hawcoe (Hacquoil), Nichol (Nicolle), Piccott (Picot), Furey (Le Huray), Norman, Noel, Le Drew, Gosselin, Grouchey (Gruchy), Murrin (Mourant), Cernew (Quenault) are names peculiar to Jersey and Guernsey and prove the descent of these people.
From the book "Family Names of the Island of Newfoundland" by E. Seary and Sheila M.P. Lynch, page 401:
PASHA, PASHER - Newfoundland variants of the surname of the Channel Islands PERCHARD (Le Messurier). In Newfoundland: Early instance: Charles Parshar, servant of Clown's Cove (Carbonear), 1820 - Modern status: At Corner Brook and Harbour Grace
In the case of Pasher, there are several baptism and marriage records in Newfoundland that carry the spelling of Perchard.
It is unknown if Charles and Jane stayed in Conception Bay as there are no further records of them. It has been hinted to me that it is possible they went back to Jersey while their son, Charles, stayed in Harbour Grace and begat the Pasher family as it exists throughout Canada today.
Charles married Jane Corneaux.
