Pool , Poole, Pooles, Prettypool
As I understand it from family records and myths: The Pooles and Pools are directly descended from the Pettypool family of France circ. 12 century. The Pettypool families were part of the hugenot movement from France because of their Protestant beliefs. When arriving in Wales they settled and the family name changed to Pettipool. Later the name fractured to pool and poole. The early 1600s saw many pools and pooles journey to the Carolinas with royal land grants and later some to serve as indentured contracts. The my ancestors moved into the Louisiana Territory around 1750s and intermingled with Spanish and Choctaw Indians. My Great x3 Grandfather was Leonard Poole who married Marium Parker of the Biloxi Choctaw tribe. [ Thomas R. Poole Jr ]

I am looking for information of any Pool(e)s who ended up in Ohio, especially Fred(erick) Poole, born 1887, allegedly in Ohio, and died 1963 in Ohio.  I think his local history may have started in Ohio, but I think he or his parents migrated there any where from 1970-1980's.  He is my grandfather.  I know that he had Native American in him, and that some of the Pool(e)s our family allegedly, came from the port of Poole in England.  In fact my mother said there was a strong connection between our family name and the port.  My mother was raised in an orphanage and is now longer with us, and was not very open about family history.  I have also been told I had a relative in England, apparently knighted, Frederick Poole.  I was also told I had a great aunt named Augusta, who wrote, but can find nothing to support that.  Fred Moved to Indiana, and had children with Jessie Mary Reinschmidt.  Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

I am interested in a family named Poole circa 1700-1750. A a captain named Poole made a trip to America during that time with one of his sons. He liked it so much that he decided to bring his whole family back. He left the son in Virginia with friends and returned to Poole to get his family, but they never returned to Virginia.

The son, William Poole, was my 6 great-grandfather and the above story has been passed down through the family all these years. I would really like to find out if there is any documentation on a Poole family and any ships that sailed at that time, or anything else to do with the Poole family. [ Peggy Oberg ]

I am trying to find information on my ancestors John and Mary Pretty. Their children were baptised in your church, and at least two of them were married there. Their son Edward James Pretty, christened 2/5/1814, married Elizabeth Hardy 27 Jan 1835; and their daughter Anne Taylor Pretty, baptised about 1810, married Josiah Wesley Walker in 1831. John and Mary Pretty also had William 1807, Martha 1811, Benjamin 1816, Mary Jane 1819, and Joseph 1820. Josiah and Anne later emigrated to Australia, and were my great great grandparents. I'm not sure of Mary's maiden name, but it may have been something like Harkett or Hartnett. I don't think either John or Mary were born or married in Poole, but they probably died there, and may even be buried in your churchyard. Can anybody help me please? [ Kathy Pearson ]

Edward James Pretty
My husband's g/g/grandfather is Edward James PRETTY, s/o John & Mary Pretty. He is described on his daughter's marriage certificate as; 'a collector of customs' at Poole.
