My partner, Len Pole, has a family tree going back to 1769 but there do not appear to be any links to the Poles already mentioned on this forum. For anyone who is interested, briefly, his early links are as follows: Thomas Pole (1769-1848) married Harriet Williams. Their son William (1814-1900) married Matilda Gauntlett. They appear to have had nine children, four of whom died in childhood. Those who survived to adulthood were: Harriet Jane (1848-1928), George Henry (1849-1929), Evan Williams (1859-1930), Cecilia Marion (1864-?). And so it goes on until the present day. Please feel free to make contact if this is of any interest to anyone.
