Can't answer re Poultow or Poulton. Many immigrant Jews changed their names
or adopted new ones when they came here to London, England, as they did on
arrival or soon after in the US.
Thanks for the reply.

I wonder if the fact that they apparently lived near the docks would explain
why the Poultow/Poulton father was a shipwright and son was a marine
engineer.
