Sir Ferdinando Poole

???? - 1804


Trustee with Milward Rowe of Sir William Young 1st bart. (q.v.), and in that capacity party to deeds whereby the Queensbury estate and the named enslaved people attached to it belonging to Sir William Young on St Vincent were sold to Gill and Thomas Slater of Liverpool in 1776 for £15,000. In the report of the Chancery suit of Poole v Shergold arising from Poole's role as trustee in relation to Young's property in Britain, he was reported as Sir Frederick Poole.
