Could not post this in the Poole board. Trying to find parish record for marriage between William Poole (c) 1775, merchant from Birmingham. in (c) 1798, married Sarah. they had three boys and two girls, and we come down from the youngest child Mary Ann Poole, who married William Wallis Mason in 1834, Aston Juxta.
Siblings were William & James Poole, both artists, George, Vicar of Burntwood, Lichfield, and Sarah, blind from birth.

Hoping to find descendants of the recorded children of William, James and George Poole, DOB for these gents: 1801, 1804 and 1806...........also hoping to find family of Mary Ward who married William Wallis Mason b 1776, marriage date 1802.............for several generations the eldest son was named William Wallis Mason.....really confusing as there were four generations of them....but they are sorted out..........
Thanks for any info...........William Poole (c) 1775 is recorded as a Merchant.

You refer to 'recorded' children of the brothers, so you must have names and birth years.

Use freebmd to research them..............
