    Old Style Calendar
    Before 1752 the year began on Lady Day, March 25th,. Dates between January 1st and March 24th were at the end of the year. Old Style (O.S.) and New Style (N.S.) are used to indicate whether the year has been adjusted. Often both dates are used.

    Jonathan Poole, of Reading, was the son of John and Margaret, and was born (probably at Cambridge) in 1634. His father was one of the first settlers of Reading, a large land owner, and doubtless was the wealthiest of the settlers. The family homestead was on the present site of the "Wakefield Rattan Works," and to this and other large tracts of land Jonathan succeeded upon the death of his father in 1667.

    His wife's name was Judith, and their children, born in Reading, were:
    Sarah, born 1656, married 1673, Thomas Bancroft;
    Judith, born 1658, married 1681, William Hesey;
    Mary, born 1660, died 1661;
    Mary, 2d, born 1662, married 1682, James Nichols;
    John, born 1665;
