Note: N10246 Her grandson William Whitcombe was presented by a Robert Poole. VCH seems to say that was the only time a Poole was patron of Eastham.
12th Sept., 1740, William Whitcomb, clerk, Master of Arts, was admitted to the rectory of Eastham, co. Salop, Deanery of Burford, void by the death of the last incumbent there, to which he was presented by Robert Poole, esquire.

There is an Oakly Park (seat of The Earl of Plymouth) in Bromfield parish, 1 1/2 miles from Ludlow, but also one In Ellesmere, 16 m NW of Shrewsbury, so both in Shropshire.
Oakley Park, in the parish of Bromfield, on the banks of the river Teme, is (in 1871) the seat of the Clive family, and the residence of Lady Mary Windsor Clive, is an elegant mansion, of modern construction, surrounded by pleasure grounds and by groves and clumps of very ancient oaks. The trustees of the late Henry R. Windsor Clive are lords of the manor and chief landowners.
There is also an Oakley Manor in Shrewsbury.
A family of Poole of Oakley, Wiltshire, used the same crest as the Pooles of Devonshire.
(British Crests: Containing The Creats And Mottos Of The Families of Great ... By Alexander Deuchar.)
There was a Henry Poole of Oakley Park(e), Wiltshire in 1678.
Edward Poole, of Poole, Wilts had a son Sir Henry Poole, of Oakley, Wilts, and a dau Eleanor who married Henry Nevill (living 1621), of Bedminster and Bathwick, Somerset.
Henry Poole of Sapperton, Wilts, bought Oakley House, Cirencester (the site of the present Cirecester Park), Glos. It passed by marriage, c 1645, to the Earl of Newburgh.
Is this her burial in the Adderly register:
“1706 June 26. Maria Whitcombe de Morrey ... sep [buried].”
And could this be her brother?
1707, Ap. 28. Abraham Pool de Morrey ... sep.
1724, Ap. 7. Catherina Whitcombe de Morrey ... sep.
But maybe she did not die in 1706, and this is her second marriage, Adderley:
1713 Aug. 14. Johann: Besford, p[arish]. de Drayton et Maria Whitcomb, hujus [same} p. ... nup.
There is a “Poole House” in Adderley.
