Poole experienced two large-scale Viking invasions during this era: in 876, Guthrum sailed his fleet through the harbour to attack Wareham, and in 1015, Canute began his conquest of England in Poole Harbour, using it as a base to raid and pillage Wessex.
Consequently, Poole gained a small measure of freedom from feudal rule and acquired the right to appoint a mayor and hold a court within town.
The headquarters of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) are in Poole, and the Royal Marines have a base in the town's harbour.
Despite their names, Poole is the home of The Arts University Bournemouth, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and a significant part of Bournemouth University.
Variants include Pool, Pole, Poles, Poll, Polle, Polman, and Poolman.
Trade with Newfoundland grew steadily to meet the demand for fish from the Catholic countries of Europe.
Poole's share of this trade varied but the most prosperous period started in the early 18th century and lasted until the early 19th century.
