John Pope's Genealogy Resource Project

Brief History

The family research (so far) goes back to John Pope of Potterne, Wiltshire (d 1618)

My main reseach starts with William Pope (1792 - 1851)

Around 1820 he preached at Grove, near Wantage, Berkshire and was a Pastor at Baydon, Wiltshire from about 1822

He married Jane White in 1825 at Southbroom (Devizes), Wiltshire

In 1833 he became the Baptist Minister at Mount Zion Baptist Church, Meopham, Kent; and preached there up until his death

All of his male children (except Jabez Pope) took up occupations in the Draper / Outfitter business at some time during their lives
