Richard Kelsall

Alderman Richard Kelsall, Mayor of Liverpool 1685-1749, my 7x great grandfather.
Richard was Mayor around the time when the Old Docks were first agreed, allowing trade and slave ships to use the city.
The area where the docks are was formerly an inlet of the Mersey which gave the city its name - The Pool, as shown on this post from the Hidden Liverpool Facebook page.
