Origins of surname

This surname may originate in the villages of Poleye in Warwickshire and Essex. It is also likely to have been a nickname for someone from the town of Poole, or who lived by a pool.

Early records

John Trick Pooley, the son of Richard Pooley and Jane Trick, was baptised in St Helier in 1856. There was then a gap until the 1880s, when children of two more Pooley families appear in baptism records.
