You said any surname of POOLE would help - I find only the surname mentioned.

On Page 7, I think(?) the author is talking about East Street (His directions are a little hard to follow) - "At the corner was Billet's house, and next Welsh the surgeon.The space between Fickus' shop on one side, and Billet's house on the other, was called 'The Opening', after passing which to enter POOLE's garden, you had to go through a covered passage belonging to some old cottages. Further up was POOLE's house and garden which extended to Mount Lane, all of which is now called Billet Street".

Page 9 "At the entrance of Hunt's Court , in Fore Street, was a stationer's shop kept by a nice old gentleman named POOLE, who wore powder. Then came a dirty chandler's shop kept by Bob Bucknell".

Under the list of occupations;

Innkeepers - POOLE - "Crown and Sceptre"
Grocers - POOLE
Masons & Builders - POOLE
Mercers & Tailors - POOLE
Stationers - POOLE
Bank Merchants - POOLE & Kinglake

Best of luck with all of them! I couldn't find the other 3 surnames you mentioned.

Hi.  Thanks so much for offering the "look-up"  service.  It is a big help for those of us who will not be able to travel to your area.

I am looking  for Dean ancestors who I think came from that region.  They may have been Deanes at that point in time.

The only occupation I know for their male descendants was  smithing.

Common or recurring male names are Jacob Dean, Jacob Clay Dean, William Dean, David Dean, Zachariah and Jonathan.

Thanks!

Hi
Hope you are still offering 'look ups'
I'm researching the Macgeorges/Mcgeorges of East Street. According to the baptism records for the children of Jonas and Fanny he was a smith/whitesmith
Many thanks
