The Poultney Family
Updated September 5, 2009
This Poultney family has it's origins in Southern Africa when the first ancestors arrived in Algoa Bay as emigrants from England with the 1820 Settlers
and after five generations in South Africa moved to what was then Southern Rhodesia. Having gone through the trials of the changes from
Rhodesia to Zimbabwe we moved in 1988 and settled in Canada where we have our home in Spruce Grove, Alberta.
