PREFACE 



The author commenced collecting the material for a family 
history while in his Freshman year at Cornell University, and 
has kept at it ever since. It has been a very laborious under- 
taking, and while he is aware of its defects he believes it will be 
accepted as an earnest attempt to gather together in one book 
the widely scattered family records. It would be impossible in 
a work of this character to avoid making some mistakes among 
the thousands of names and dates, and the author hopes that 
any corrections or additions will be at once sent to him to be 
incorporated in some future edition. He desires especially to 
thank those who have assisted him in furnishing names and 
dates and other information. Some members of the family have 
been somewhat apathetic about the matter, and if the account of 
their branch of the family is not complete they have only them- 
selves to blame, as all were invited to contribute information. 
The price has been placed at the actual cost of the work. The 
plan of the work is so simple as to need no explanation.

INTRODUCTION. 



The Poole family is of Norman origin. The family name 
of Poole is of Teutonic origin, many Teutonic words having 
crept into Norman French. The derivation as given in Grieb's 
English and German Dictionary is as follows : Pool, pool 
(angels, pol, pul ; English). Ger. Pfuhl. Fr. Poule. Bos- 
worth's Anglo-Saxon Dictionary gives the derivation as follows : 
Pol [Plat. Frs pool m: Dut poel. m. a puddle, marsh, plash : 
Ger. pfuhl. m : Old Ger. phul : Dan. poel, pol c. a marsh : 
Swed. pol. m:] a pool, lake. Thus the first person to whom 
ii applied owned landed property lying about a lake. The 
noblest names referred to places and natural objects. The 
first form in which we find the name is De La Pole ; as, 
for instance. John De La Pole, or John of the lake. The 
territorial de signified "of" or "from," and originally im- 
plied the possession of manorial estates, and therefore, that a 
family bearing it belonged to the landed aristocracy. Burke's 
Peerage and Baronetage says about the lineage of the family : 
"On inquiry," says Prince, in his Worthies of Devon, relative 
to this family, "Ijind it was both ancient and honourable ; and 
that Pole, in the parish of Tiverton, was the seat and possession 
thereof from the time of the Norman Conquest for several gener- 
ations down." 

The family name originally stood De La Pole. It so re- 
mained until the family went to England. The family is dis- 
tinctly traced to 1065. The original ancestor in England 
came over with William the Conqueror in 1066. There was 
a Robert Pull, a member of the family, but the name remained 
De La Pole for many generations till it was broadened into 



Introduction. 5 

English, Poole. Some members of the family bear the name 
Pole, some Pooler, some Pooley, and some Poolton. The 
Poole family in England have played a conspicuous part in 
its history. The first one of prominence we meet is Sir 
Richard Pole, K. G., who married Elizabeth, Countess of 
Salisbury, daughter of the Duke of Clarence. Their children 
were so near the throne that Henry VII. and Henry VIII. 
slaughtered them in order to make their own hold upon it secure. 
The Countess and their son, Lord Montacute, were beheaded. 
Her son, Cardinal Reginald Pole, kept cautiously out of their 
reach. Henry Pole, Baron Montacute, was summoned to Par- 
liament 5 Jan. 25 Hen. VIII, 1533 ; attainted and beheaded, 
1539. He had two daughters, Katharine and Winifred. Kath- 
arine married Francis, 2nd Earl of Huntington, now represented 
by her h. general the Marquess of Hastings. Winifred married 
(1st) Sir Thomas Hastings, brother of her brother-in-law, the 
2nd Earl of Huntington ; (2nd) Sir Thomas Barrington, and has 
descendants. Lady Alice Pole in the reign of Henry III. 
(1216-1272) gave the manor of and castle of Compton in Devon- 
shire to one of the family of Peter, according to the New Eng. 
Hist, and Geneal. Register, 1848, Page 60. Sir Richard Pole, 
K. G. , whom Macaulay calls a Welsh knight, and Margaret, 
Countess of Salisbury, had a daughter Ursula who married 
Henry, Lord Stafford, son and heir of Edward de Stafford, 3d 
Duke of Buckingham, and Eleanor Percy, daughter of Henry, 
4th Earl of Northumberland. Their third son was Richard 
Stafford, who had a son Roger and a daughter Jane, the former 
of whom in 1637 was entitled to succeed to the barony, but was 
compelled by Charles I. to relinquish his claims on account of 
his poverty. Their son, Sir Geoffrey Pole, escaped beheading 
it is claimed by turning against his relatives. Their daughter, 
Gertrude, married Henry Courtenay, Marquis of Exeter, and 
their son, the youthful Lord Henry Courtenay, was also beheaded. 
Lord Macauley in his History of England, Chapter VIII., 
speaks thus of Cardinal Pole in connection with his account of 
Magdalen College, Oxford : ' 'Another prince of the blood, the 
last and best of the Roman Catholic archbishops of Canterbury, 
the gentle Reginald Pole, had studied there." 



6 History of the Poole Family. 

In politics have been also the Pooles who were successively 
Earls, Marquises and Dukes of Suffolk, the founder of this 
branch of the family being William De La Pole, a wealthy mer- 
chant of Kingston on Hull, who loaned large sums of money to 
Edward III., and was employed by him as Ambassador to foreign 
courts. From him descended John De La Pole, Earl of Lincoln, 
Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, named heir to the throne by his 
uncle, King Richard III. A revolt headed by him to obtain 
the throne was suppressed by Henry VIII. His brother, Rich- 
ard De La Pole, called the "White Rose of England," assumed 
the title of Duke of Suffolk ; was exiled and entered the service 
of the King of France, and was killed in the Battle of Pavia. 
He was the last of his great house. Michael De La Pole, Lord 
Chancellor, married a daughter of Thomas Chaucer, Speaker of 
the House of Commons, son of Geoffrey Chaucer, the poet. In 
France in 1475 lived the Constable St. Pol, descended from the 
royal house of Luxembourg ; and the Count St Pol was a French 
general at the Battle of Pavia. 

In ecclesiastical affairs the family in England have been 
prominent. Reginald Pole was a Cardinal and Archbishop of 
Canterbury during his cousin Queen Mary's reign. David Pole 
(History of Oxford College calls him Daniel Pole) was Bishop 
of Peterborough. John Pooley was Bishop of Cloyne. Arthur 
William Poole was Bishop of the English Church in Japan 
1882-4. Among English authors have been John Poole, dram- 
atist ; Matthew Poole, the learned non-conformist ; Arthur Stan- 
ley Poole, Orientalist ; Stanley Lane Poole, Orientalist ; Reginald 
Stuart Poole, Librarian of the British Museum ; William Pole, 
an authority on whist ; Reginald Lane Poole and Alfred Poole. 
Among artists is Paul Falconer Poole, R. A., the historical 
painter. Rachel Van Poole, a Dutch painter, died in 1750 ; her 
husband, Julian Poole, was also eminent in portraits, and died 
in 1745.

He died Dec. 19, 1830, at Easton, Mass. She died Aug. 3, 
1835, at Easton. The Christian Register and Observer of Bos- 
ton at the time of his death in 1830 said : "In 1758, while in his 
twenty-first year he was engaged as a private soldier in what is 
called the "Old French War" and assisted in the capture of Fort 
Frontenac, which surrendered to the English troops on the 27th 
of August (O. S.), of that year. He engaged also, with the 
ardor and patriotism which distinguished the yeomen of that 
period, in the Revolutionary struggle, and held for some time a 
commission of Lieutenant in one of the companies from the Old 
Colony. In his private character he furnished through life, a 
striking example of the scrupulous integrity, purity, and modest 
but ardent piety of the Puritan Fathers, graced with a Christian 
Kindness and Catholicism worthy of a more advanced period. 
There is not a breath of reproach upon his memory. None who 
knew him could but be satisfied to leave as fair a name behind 
them, or but wish that their "latter end" might be like his — as 
peaceful and as full of hope." The same paper at the time of 
her death, in 1835, said: "She lived with her husband nearly 
seventy-one years, in the exemplary and faithful exercise of all 
the virtues of an amiable, discreet and affectionate Christian wife 
and mother." (See Hobart's History of Abington.)

ton, Mass. He prepared at Hingham Academy for Harvard 
College, but took up the study of medicine and practiced as a 
skillful and successful physician during his lifetime. He mar- 
ried, April 7, 1825, by Rev. William L,. McCalla, Presbyterian, 
Anna Rebecca Gardner (daughter of Capt. Valentine Gardner, 
an officer in the War of 1812, and merchant, and Mary Magda- 
lene Hinckle of Philadelphia, son of John Jacob Gardner and 
Rachel, his wife. Mary M. Hinckle was a daughter of Adam 
Hinckle and Eve, his wife. Anna R. Gardner's brothers were 
Jacob Gardner and William Gardner of Philadelphia. Her sis- 
ter Mary married William Wood, a broker in New York or 
Brooklyn; another sister married Harmon Baugh of Philadelphia; 
another sister married Casper Henry Baring of Philadelphia.) 
She was born Jan. 7, 1807, at Philadelphia. She attended the 
reception given by the ladies of Philadelphia to Gen. I^afayette 
on his second visit to America in 1825, and shook hands with 
him. All the ladies wore brown ribbons in his honor because 
he wore a brown suit. Her mother's house was occupied by 
British soldiers in the Revolutionary War. He was a soldier in 
Captain Benjamin King's Abington Rifle Company, "Minute 
Men," in the war of 1812, and he, with his company, garrisoned

inventor and patentee of shoe nails, or shoe sparables, as they 
were then called, nothing but wooden pegs having been previ- 
ously used for fastening the soles to boots and shoes. He sold 
the invention to Hobart & Fields, who are to this day the prin- 
cipal manufacturers of shoe nails in this country. He also 
invented and patented other valuable nail and tack making 
machinery. He removed to Philadelphia about 1825, where he 
engaged in the manufacture of nails and tacks on a large scale, 
his factory being at the corner of Vine Street and Ridge Road, 
and employing horse power and a large number of men. About 
this time he shut himself up in a room for two years, where he 
invented and afterwards patented a cracker machine which would 
make, roll and pick and place in the oven great quantities of sea 
biscuit or crackers in a very short space of time — a vast improve- 
ment and labor saving invention over the old hand-making pro- 
cess, and for this invention he was offered $10,000.00 for the 
right to sell in Maryland alone, and received $2,000.00 for the 
right to use it from a wholesale bakery firm in Philadelphia. 
He also invented and patented a spinning jenny with a large 
number of spindles, which he sold to a wholesale manufacturing 
firm in Philadelphia. While living in Philadelphia he became 
the Engineer and Superintendent of Construction of an iron 
rolling mill which he erected for capitalists in the State of North 
Carolina, and in the building of which he was absent from home 
•one year at a salary of $100.00. per month. He removed to 
Phcenixville, Pa., and afterwards to Dauphin, Dauphin Co., Pa., 
and to Centre Moreland and Beaumont, Wyoming Co., Pa., 
-where he engaged in the mercantile business and lumber manu- 
facturing. He removed in 1849 to Mount Carmel, Wabash Co., 
111., and engaged in the same business. While living there he 
invented and patented a dredging machine. He also invented a 
brick machine. He also invented and patented, May 30, 1854, 
..a quartz crusher, consisting of a system of rollers, and this prin- 
ciple was adopted in all subsequent inventions, and is used as 
imuch to-day as the stamping process. It was very light for 
transportation over the mountains. He was offered $60,000.00 
by Philadelphia capitalists for a one-fourth interest in the inven-

tion, but declined. Having built a machine in Philadelphia, he 
started for California, via Panama, sending it via Cape Horn. 
He went to Meacham's Toll Gate near the town of Nevada, Cal- 
ifornia, conveying the machine by pack mules, where he set up 
the crusher, and it proved entirely successful under every test, 
but during his absence a Dr. Bush, an enemy who had been 
refused an interest in the machine, filled it with boulders, in- 
stead of nuggets for which it was intended, and broke it. When 
he returned and found all his hopes shattered and he several 
hundred miles from the nearest foundry in San Francisco where 
it could be repaired, he turned on his heel and left and never 
looked back, but started for home and was sick with fever at 
Panama, but reached home at Mt. Carmel, after an absence of 
nearly three years, and after an expenditure of over $5,000.00. 
He invented many other valuable machines and articles. School 
Director at Beaumont, Pa. Mayor of the city of Mount Carmel, 
Illinois, 1854, when he resigned to go to California. He and 
his wife were prominent members of the M. E. Church for many 
years, and he was Steward of Beauchamp Chapel at Mt. Carmel 
many years. He was a prominent member of the Masonic fra- 
ternity and Master of Mt. Carmel Lodge. He always took a 
prominent part in Democratic politics. In personal appearance 
he was of medium size, height about 5 feet 11 inches and weight 
about 175 pounds, with smoothly shaven face, brown hair and 
blue eyes. He was dignified in manner. She was of medium 
size, height about 5 feet 8 inches, weight about 160 pounds, with 
black hair and eyes. She always used a cane, one of her shoes 
requiring a thin cork sole, this being caused by a fever in her 
childhood, which settled in the hip. She used to say that the 
Pooles before her time had blue eyes, but that all her children 
had black eyes from her family. He was a man of wealth and 
stood high in the community in which he lived. He left Abing- 
ton the 1st of April, 1819, and visited Baltimore, Richmond, 
Zanesville, Dayton and Cincinnati, and soon afterwards settled 
in Philadelphia. He resided at Abington, Mass., 1797-1821 ;

continuing her studies at Burlington, Vt. Prostrated from 
overwork, she then went south for her health, and there engaged 
in teaching during several years, in the states of Mississippi and 
Tennessee. Married to C. O. Poole of New York City Jan. 14th, 
1865, Mrs. Poole became occupied with domestic pursuits, though 
from girlhood she often contributed to the local press. In 1868 
Mr. and Mrs. Poole went abroad, where they traveled, during 
several months, in Great Britain and on the Continent. During 
these journeyings Mrs. Poole contributed a series of letters to a 
daily paper of New York from Edinburgh, London, Paris, Rome, 
Naples and Geneva. From that period Mrs. Poole's pen has 
seldom been idle. In "A Woman of the Century" she is regis- 
tered as author, critic and artist. As a contributor her articles 
have appeared in the Chautauquan, Christian Union, the Arena, 
' Decorator and Furnisher, Good Housekeeping, the Home-Maker, 
Home Magazine, Woman's Journal, &c, &c. She has written 
many illustrated articles on House Decoration, &c, and has 
furnished a History of Sorosis for the Woman's (Library) Build- 
ing of the Chicago Exposition. As a decorative artist her 
schemes are sought and extensively copied. She has also written 
many unsigned articles, including editorials, art and book criti- 
cisms and essays. As a poet Mrs. Poole's contributions have 
been less frequent, but have won encomium. Some of her work 
in this line is found in Harper's English and American Poetry, 
edited by Epes Sargent. For woman's higher education and 
advancement Mrs. Poole is an arduous worker. She has often 
spoken from the platform on these and kindred topics. Her 
lately published book, by Fowler & Wells, is "Fruits and How 
to Use Them." Residence, 1893, Metuchen, N.J.

Mrs. McGraw's residence, and Sage Block, at Ithaca, N. Y., 
besides many other noted public buildings and costly private 
residences. He built brick works for the manufacture of stock 
brick at Spencer, N. Y., about 1885, and discovered in 1889 a 
valuable deposit of clay suitable for the manufacture of white 
and buff brick and terra cotta, the only deposit of the kind in 
that part of the country, in the Town of Newfield, on the line of 
the Lehigh Valley Railroad, near Newfield Station (P. O. Nina, 
Tompkins Co., N. Y.), and built there extensive works for its 
manufacture, which he still continues, in which he introduced 
many of his own valuable inventions, which were patented in 
in 1892 and 3, including a process for grinding and separating 
the clay ; also a dry kiln in which sieam is the agent used in 
drying on the ground draft principle, the first of the kind intro- 
duced for the purpose of drying brick. Also other inventions 
for the manipulation of the business, to expedite the work, and 
producing a better quality of wear than would otherwise be 
obtained. A test of his pressed brick at Sibley College of Cornell 
University shows it capable of sustaining a pressure upon the 
surface of 16,000 pounds to the square inch, making it suitable 
for paving, the nearest approach to it being a Canadian brick

HISTORY OF THE CAREY FAMILY. 

i. John 1 . The Carey family is of English origin, the 
family name being originally Carew, meaning a careful man, 
but as the English pronounce that name Carey the spelling soon 
followed the sound. John Carey, a descendant of Sir Thomas 
Carey, cousin of Queen Elizabeth, and which Sir Thomas was 
a descendant of the famous Sir Robert Carey, who slew the 
boasting Knight of Aragon, is said to have come from the neigh- 
borhood of Bristol, England, at the age of twenty-five, and set 
down first in 1637 at Duxbury, Mass. He afterwards removed 
to Bridgewater. He married, in June, 1644, Elizabeth Godfrey 
(daughter of Francis Godfrey). First Town Clerk of Bridgewa- 
ter, Mass. He died Nov. 2, 1681, is the date of report. 

Children : 

2. John. Born 1635. 8. 

3. Francis. Born 1647. 

4. James. Born 1652 at Braintree, Mass. 

5. Jonathan. Born 1656 at Bridgewater. 

6. David. Born 1658 at Bridgewater. 

7. Joseph. Born 1653 at Bridgewater. 14. 

8. John 2 . (John"). 2. He married/in 1670, Abigail Allen 
(daughter of Samuel Allen, 2nd, Freeman, and Margaret, widow 
of Edward Lamb, his wife).

settled at Grahamville, Town of Minisink, Orange County, N. Y., 
about 1773. The name was John according to his great-grand- 
son, Rev. Absalom Carey of Wyoming, Del., though other 
authorities claim it was Lemuel. It is believed that this John 
(or Lemuel) was descended from John, the first town clerk of 
Bridgewater, but it is not certain that the names between the 
first John and this John (or Lemuel) are given rightly, unless 
we accept the claim of the Rev. Absalom Carey that this John 
(or Lemuel) was a brother of Dr. Samuel Carey (Yale 1755), 
who was the great-grandfather, through Christopher and Robert 
Carey, of Alice and Phoebe Carey, the poets. Their ancestry is

HISTORY OF THE GARDNER FAMILY. 

i. John Jacob 1 . The first member of the family of whom ' 
we have knowledge was John Jacob Gardner. He was born in 
1738. His wife's name was Rachel. She was born in 1741. 
He resided at Germantown, Pa. They are both buried in the 
cemetery at Frankford (now a part of Philadelphia) Pa., as the 
inscriptions on their tombstones attest. Their grand-daughter, 
Anna Rebecca (Gardner) Poole, thought the Gardners were of 
German descent, but as her parents both died when she was a 
little girl and as her mother was of German descent, and also 
some of her family married persons of German descent, those 
facts may have led her to think so. It is more probable that 
the Gardners were of English descent, as it is an English name, 
and that the family came over with William Penn. He died in 
1810. She died in 1812.

HISTORY OF THE ZEUFFE FAMILY. 

i. Solomon 1 . The Zeliffe family came from France about 
the time of the American Revolution and settled at Northum- 
berland, Pa., where many of their descendants still reside. 
Some members of the family afterwards removed to Arkport 
(near Hornellsville), N. Y. Solomon Zeliffe is the first known. 
He settled in Northumberland, which was peopled largely by 
Pennsylvania Dutch and he probably learned to speak German, 
so that some of his descendants think he was of German descent, 
but there is no doubt but that he was of French descent. A 
history of famous composers of music mentions a Petre Zeliffe 
(spelled that way), a French composer. The name plainly 
shows a French origin. The name was formerly spelled Zeluff 
but is now more correctly spelled Zeliffe. Solomon Zeliffe re- 
moved from Northumberland to Beach's Island, Tioga Co., Pa. 
He married.
