My name is Ros Haywood, and I am the Online Parish Clerk (OPC) for South Pool, running the South Pool One Place Study as well. I have gathered/am gathering/will gather as much genealogical detail as possible about South Pool from parish registers, census records, land tax assessments, tithe apportionments etc.

Below you will find a list of resources. Some I have transcribed and are on this site; some, for reasons of copyright and/or size are in my possession and I will do lookups for you. Some have links to other sites (for instance, the FamilySearch site has the 1881 census online for free).

Please be aware that I am a volunteer and should in no way be confused with the Council-appointed Parish Council clerk.
You can read more about the Online Parish Clerk scheme here

My privacy policy means I consider individuals born under 110 years ago are to be regarded as living (unless a death date is known, of course), and so information on them will not be published on this site. The 1911 census has been used as a resource for individuals only where its use would mean that the person was born over 110 years ago.
