I am a Greenslade myself and I am very interested in the history of the name and of my family, most notably, William 'Bill' Greenslade, who is my grandfathers grandfather. Not so long ago, my grandfather attended a small photographic display at a church in Poole, in which he saw a photograph of his grandfather. I'm having a lot of trouble tracking down anyone that can help me find this image or indeed any information about William Greenslade. The only imformation I have or know of is he was a boxer, champion of dorset and was born in the late 1800's, around 1885 I believe

Any information on this matter, or indeed  any other contact details for someone who may know anything about this man or have any images on him would be greatly appreciated.[ Dominick Greenslade ]

We are hoping to visit your area next summer and have started making plans. This would be basically a genealogy trip as one of my ancestors in the early 1800s was James Guy a blacksmith in Slades Basin, Poole. The problem is that no one seems to have heard of Slades Basin. Has this been renamed to something else??? Appreciate any help you can give on this.
