I think she was adopted and her name changed to mabel- using her original name for marriage.

mays parents are william and ellen but I expected the mother to be called drusilla aswell-because one was born 20 years before (and with a similar middle name)

Hi Alter, May I pose a question please? Details from marriage cert Aug 5 1901 in Kemble Glos. William Frank POOLE age 23 Occupation Platelayer (father Joseph POOLE labourer) married Emily Virginia SAUNDERS William's address at time of marriage All Saints Gloucester. The problem: I can't be sure if I have located William in the census 1881 - 1901, with or without his father. A second brain would be appreciated Pete

Name: Emily Virginia Saunders Year of Registration: 1878 Quarter of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar District: Malmesbury County: Gloucestershire, Wiltshire Volume: 5a ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- it ake it you realise that the marriage in gloucester and her birth there makes sense,but its possible thatthe poole family come from elsewhere? Ive looked at a few william pooles and frank pooles-the father could have been a soldier-the son could have been at grandparents-there is one such example-if you could find the mothers name it would help.

Pete

Pete Report 22 Mar 2006 20:40

Yes, Kemble is near the Wilts and Glos border. Her family is all traced back to 1840's but I can't nail him at all. There is a William Frank POOLE on FreeBMD in Tewkesbury, born c1878 (from memory) but I can't follow a likely one through for him. I have tried using the 'real' 1901 site and doing occupation searches for POOLE but still nothing certain Gotta pop out, parental taxi duties, will check back later Pete

Found him- if you have ancestry- hes staying with his sister-enter william poole 1979 +/- 2 years gloucestershire-brother in law-he is staying at Coney hill-henry whitchead is head of household and married williams sister louisa-henry is 24. Occupation given for william as plate;layer-thats good enough for me.

Nice to see you kiddo, blah blah blah! :))

Pete Report 22 Mar 2006 21:43

Ok back again. Yes I saw that one, but he's listed as married - his wife Minnie and their son are also in the house. The marriage cert (aug 1901 says bachelor for William. Not easy is it? Pete

The Ego

The Ego Report 22 Mar 2006 22:07

something not right here-i cant find that marriage for a minnie whitchead and william poole- its still possible that he is the brother of the heads wife,and that his details wetre handed in in his absence-there is no other reference to someone with that name and occupation-dont believe in coincidences.

Pete

Pete Report 22 Mar 2006 22:18

Yes, there is something about this household that required more delving. However, it is late, I have spent much of today musing this and making little progress. Tomorrow, with fresh eyes, I'll look again thanks for your time and efforts Pete

The Ego

The Ego Report 22 Mar 2006 22:22

Ive checked again-they were not a married couple,and how strange that a lady called emily poole died in march 1901(time of the census)-the age given is 31,but this could be 21 mistranscribed.
