In Reply to: Arthur Langley Poll bn. ca. 1880 ?????? by Nissa Armstrong - Poll of 300

Ok, here is a bit of an update on what I have found, thanks to a generous researcher in New Zealand... Thank you Dave.

Arthur Langley Poll
Bn: circa 1883 (his wedding certificate shows him age 29 when he wedded Jessie, making his birth circa 1883)
Place: ???? London, England
Died: 12 October 1917
Place: France?
Burried: NOT. There is a memorial, Tyne Cot Memorial, West Vlaanderen,Belgium, where his name is inscribed.
Parentage: Father listed as Frederick Poll of London, England (on the marriage certificate he is listed as a draper) - Mother Jane Ann Poll (nee Boone????) (on the marriage certificate it is unclear if the surname is
Boone or not, hence the ???'s which appear on the listing and are transcribed here)
Married: December 18, 1912, Linwood, Christchurch, New Zealand
Serjeant: # 25139, 2nd. Bn. 3rd., N.Z. Rifle Brigade (on some lists he is listed as Q.M. - Sergeant)
Children: So far I know of Kenneth Langley Poll, Norah Joan Poll and Arthur Cecil Henry Poll. Kenneth Langley is our ancestor connecting us to Arthur.

All the information listed above has come from Wedding certificate, War Graves Site, BDM searches in NZ at the Christchurch Library Etc.

These are some leads that I am unable to find more information on to rule out or to prove.

Births Mar 1883
Poll Arthur Moore L* Wandsworth 1d 678

*note - (this is the only Arthur Poll that I have found in our 1883 time frame. I am not sure what the L stands for, could be Langley, but I do know that in this family, most if not all, of the kids used their middle names instead of
their first names. Arthur's son, Kenneth Langley Poll is listed as using Langley in school instead of Arthur.)

Deaths Mar 1894
Poll Jane Ann 43 Lambeth 1d 337

From the 1901 census:
Arthur Poll 6 London Hampstead London Lambeth (living at the home of one August Poll from Germany so this may not be our Arthur, also, the age is slightly off)

Frederick Poll 46 Diss Norfolk London Lambeth Draper Assistant (age 46)**

Marie Poll 19 Stoke Newington London Lambeth (Daughter of the above Frederick, age 19)**

**note - These are the only two shown living at 41 Strathleven Road, Lambeth, London, England. I do have a copy of the page listing them as well as a copy of the transcript of this listing.
