Born on 31 July, 1848, Penzance, Lavin was his mother's maiden name. In 1879 his address was in Newlyn, and he began to send paintings in to the RCPS: Newlyn - fresh breeze (1879), Trawlers, Gwavas Lake (1884) and Penzance (1888).
At NAG in 1897 he exhibited and sold Mackerel Season, Mts Bay. Within the sales records, Pascoe's name is often found as a purchaser of works from the earliest exhibitions. On 28 September, 1908 the artist died, age 60, at Mylor near Falmouth (GRO).
Lynn Pascoe's paintings have been exhibited at Trelissick Gardens. Her love of the Cornish landscape is reflected in her work.
Terry Pascoe was born in Redruth and was educated at the grammar school there. He became a student at Falmouth Art School and then the Central School of Art in London.
An earlier William Pascoe, from Plymouth, is listed by Graves as painting landscapes between 1842-44 at RA, SS, and BI, however the Pascoe referred to here is mentioned by Green as a contemporary of the Welsh student Carey MORRIS, and was a pupil at the FORBES SCHOOL c1905.
Pascoe lived at 6 Wellington Terrace, Penzance. He exhibited and sold The Embroiderer at NAG in July 1906. In 1907 C Lewis Hind published Days in Cornwall (Methuen & Co) and William Pascoe provided sixteen coloured illustrations for the book with such subjects as Lanyon Quoit, Newlyn Slip, St Michael's Mount, A Night View of the Island, St Ives and Trencrom Hill. Whether or not these illustrations were reproductions of paintings for exhibition, is not known. Photographs were also provided by a number of national and locally based photographers such as Herbert LANYON (St Ives), GIBSON (Penzance) and Francis FRITH amongst others.
In the permanent collection at Falmouth Art Gallery is Portrait of a Man, attributed to William Pascoe as active 1905-1912.
