John Poole

      
Birth Details

         Name: John Pool
   Event Type: Baptism
   Birth Date: 26 Sep 1796
 Baptism Date: 11 Nov 1796
Baptism Place: Highworth, Wiltshire, England
       Father: John Pool (Butcher)
       Mother: Ann Pool 

       
NOTE: This entry has the wrong first name for mother. John's father (also John)
      was married to a Mary 3 years earlier and was still married to her years 
      later. But bare with me as I still believe this is the right entry for 
      John. Cross referenced with census returns, this baptism has the right 
      name, year of birth, place of birth, father's name and father's occupation. 

      I have seen before now baptism/marriage/census docs in which a person uses 
      their middle name at times. Could it be that Mary was really Mary Ann? 
      Hard to say until I find more information relating to Mary.

Some of the above information was obtained from Ronald Poole a descendant of 
the above John Poole, who kindly shared his research with me.   

Ronald's father and my grandfather Sidney Thorne were first cousins. Ron first 
made contact with me through GenesReunited. Ron told me that his father, William, 
remembered his cousin "Sidney the diver" visiting them, when he was a kid.
