Sir Arthur Pole of Broadhurst, Sussex (c. 1502 - 1535 or bet. 1493-1499 - aft. 10 May 1527) was an English knight.


He was the second son of Margaret Pole, 8th Countess of Salisbury (godmother to Mary I of England) and Sir Richard Pole. His younger brother, Cardinal Reginald Pole, became the last Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury under Queen Mary I. His older brother was Henry Pole, 1st Baron Montagu.

He was Gentleman of the Bedchamber to King Henry VIII in 1518 and his Esquire of the Body in 1520, who invested him as a Knight in 1523. He was also the Lord of the Manor of Broadhurst, Sussex.[1][2]


He married before 24 October 1522 Jane Lewkenor, widow of Sir Christopher Pickering (bef. 1512 - bef. 1522), whom she married before 1522, and daughter of Sir Roger Lewkenor of Trotton, Sussex - a paternal grandson of Sir Roger Lewknor and Alianora de Camoys - and wife Eleanor Tuchet - daughter of John Tuchet, 6th Baron Audley and 3rd Baron Tuchet and Anne Echingham. The couple had no children. She married a third time after 1527 Sir William Barentyne and died before 12 March 1562/1563.
