Kevin please can you email me more details about your Capt Thomas Pooler as I seem to be descended from a John Pooler born Comber Co Down, son of Capt Thomas Pooler and a Margaret Donelly and we knew nothing about them! We need dates and locations to help fill in a big gap!
Our records show John married a Rosanna McCaffrey, also possibly from the same part of Co Down but then came to Lancashire. I've been having problems finding them on censuses, or firm birth/death dates locations and have no dates for Rosanna though it's possible one census has her down as Rosamund.....so any help would be very welcome
The 1901 census records one household as Pooles not Pooler which hasn't helped, so be warned!!
