1760 Constitution of Lagland Street Congregational Chapel

Densham & Ogle, the authors of The Congregational Churches of Dorset (1899) quoted the whole constitution in their book, mentioning that the original was stored in the Skinner Street Congregational Chapel safe. However, when the church archive was catalogued in early 2019, it was not found and is therefore assumed to be lost to posterity. SSCC

1765 Letter from Rev. Samuel Philipps to Mr. Martin Kemp

This letter reveals the acrimonious ending to Rev. Philipps’ ministry, which had spanned a total of 12 years of ministry, first in Hill Street and later in Lagland Street, Poole (1753 – 1765). In the seventh year of his ministry (1760), he was ejected from the Great Presbyterian Meeting House, Hill Street, Poole, but he continued his ministry in the newly founded Congregational Chapel in Lagland Street, to which many members from Hill Street seceded with him. Readers may be interested in the footnotes, which give more details about the circumstances surrounding the letter.

Absent Voters- Poole 1918 and 1919

The 1918 General Election gave the right to vote to all men over the age of 21, women over the age of 30 and military personnel over the age of 19. The first list of Absent Voters was compiled and published in 1918 but contained many errors. Servicemen were given another chance to register and a second list was published April 1919. After this lists were published twice a year in Spring and Autumn. The lists give a name, home address, military service number and regiment, battalion or name of a ship. This transcription is from the 1918 and 1919 electoral register for Poole and contains over 4000 names.
