Hi Christine,
This is interesting info, how does he fit into your tree?
I am still ploughing through the ONS course, LOTS of www sites to look at, it blows the mind!
I have had a chance to look at your tree and find I have most of the people already linked in my tree 1239.. not a prison number, just my way of sorting people.
At the moment your tree is not linked to mine, but I feel there is a link so I will search for it.
Peter Glasspool 26 apr 1859 moved about 3 miles from where I live now! married Cecelia BUSHELL and had four children.. I might try the local record office to see if I can find out more. At least two of them married in Northamptonshire.
Thought you might like to see the start of my ONS profile... earlky days yet!

Hi Diana
Just looked at your ONS. The Titchfield parish records have loads of Glaspoles Ranging from the baptism of an Agnis Srptember 1593 ( presumably not the same one as was married in 1598 !) to the burial of John Glasspoll of the Parck th 2 daye of September 1673. I believe I found more after on the Parish Recs but I don't have the link between Titchfield and Owlsebury.
