Poole - Archam
« on: Sunday 18 July 04 23:49 BST (UK) »
Have just realised that Atcham is in Mongomeryshire, thought it was in Shropshire.  I know that the early records are classed under Salop or Shropshire.
I have a Jeffrey POOLE, living in Birmingham in 1881 and 1891 census', born Atcham 1881 an Assist. Chemist, and in 1891 a Chemist. 
Don't know who he is attached to yet.
Maybe someone could help me ???

Hi

Atcham IS in Shropshire, not Montgomeryshire.  It's just on the outskirts of Shrewsbury about a mile or so.

Is this your Jeffrey in the 1881 census:

Household:

 Name  Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability
 George WILCOX   Head   W   Male   60   Birmm, Warwick, England   Chemist     
 Rose WILCOX   Daur   U   Female   26   Birmm, Warwick, England       
 Louisa WILCOX   Daur   U   Female   24   Birmm, Warwick, England       
 Clement W. WILCOX   Son   U   Male   21   Birmm, Warwick, England   Tailor     
 Alfred E. WILCOX   Son   U   Male   17   Birmm, Warwick, England   Brass Founder     
 Sarah A. WILCOX   Sister In Law   U   Female   60   Birmm, Warwick, England       
 Arthur W. RAWLINS   Assistant   U   Male   27   Hanford, Stafford, England   Chemists Asst     
 Jeffery POOLE   Assistant   U   Male   18   Rowton, Shropshire, England   Chemists Asst   

George W. GERMAN   Apprentice   U   Male   16   Edengate, Stafford, England   Chemists Apprentice     
 Ellen EDWARDS   Serv   U   Female   34   Abberley, Worcester, England   Domestic Servant     

If it is it states his birthplace as Rowton, Shropshire.  Rowton is approx. 6 miles west of Shrewsbury.  Maybe he lied about his birthplace?

Yes that is the gentleman I was searching for, but I know some of them lied about where they were born, or maybe the head of the house didn't know for sure.

Thanks for steering me in the right direction.
