POOLE Family HistoryRecorded in several spelling forms including Pool, Poole, Pole, Paul, and Paule and the family name of Lord Poole of Poole, near Chester, this is an English surname, although in some cases of biblical origins. It has three possible sources. The first is locational from the village of Poole near the city of Chester, or from the town Poole in Dorset, or perhaps other places called Pool or Poole in the British Isles, the second is topographical from the Olde English pre 7th century word "pol". This describes a person who dwelt by either a small lake or more usually a tidal stream.
