Dear Tom I am descended from John Pole, bap. 7th April 1782, Lydeard St Lawrence, Somerset, who is the brother of your Faithfull Pole. The info I have (which comes from a third person so I make no claims for its accuracy) is that their parents were Richard Pole (1755-1836) and Grace Strong (1755-1828), par. Abraham Pole & Elizabeth Cross, then Richard Pole & Sarah. Love to hear from you. Marian Matta.
