POWELLS

POWELLS of Stonage Park, County Radnor, descended through Walter Powell living in Queen Elizabeth's time, from Rhys Aap, King of South Wales.

THE POWELL LINE

THE name is of Welsh origin and was originally Ap Howell, being gradually contracted to POWELL, this was done by abbreviating AP HOWELL, leaving out the letters A and H.

The first family of Powells lived in Brechnockshire, South Wales, now known as Breconshire.

The Powells are descendants of the Royal Family of Wales, coming from one of the sons of the old Kings of Wales.

Castle Madoc Brecon, in the County of Brechnoc, Wales, was their home. Three of the family were Judges on the Kings Bench in England.

The year of our Lord (1087), is as far back as we have been able to trace the Powell Family.

During the reign of William Rufus (1087); at which period "Lord Brecon" whose name was "Bleddyn Ap Maenyrch Ap Driffyn Ap Hwgan".

It was in this year that his Lordship was invaded by

Bernard Newmarch, (a Norman); who with his forces defeated Lord Brecon in battle at Caerbaunan. In this battle Lord Brecon was slain and his body was carried by his two sons to the Abbey of Strata Florida, Cardiganshire, and there buried.

The lands of his Lordship were divided by Newmarch (The Norman), between himself and his followers; EXCEPT A SMALL PART, WHICH THE SONS OF HIS LORDSHIP WERE ALLOWED TO RETAIN.

From one of these sons, name Bleguryd, descended in the 5th degree, Einon Sais. Third in descent from Einon Sais, was Llewllyn, who married Matilda, daughter of Jenan Ap Rhys Ap Ivor, of Ebrel, by whom he had two sons:

Howell, ancestor of the Powells and

David Gam, celebrated in Welsh History as the enemy of Owen Gledower, (and more renowned for his valor at

Page 7

Agincourt); where he supported the English monarch Henry V.

Howell married Margaret, the daughter of Gwyllym Philip Thomas ap Elydor; by this marriage there were two sons and two daughters.

The elder son, Gwylden Dew, married Mary, the daughter of Jenkins Richard Jenkins, of Aberyschin; there was a son, Howell Dew, by this marriage.

Howell Dew married the daughter of Roger Modoc Rich David; by this marriage there was a son, Gwyllym.

Gwyllym married Catherine, the daughter of John Rees Jenkins, of Glynedd; by this marriage there was a son, Howell, of Argoed.

Howell was married twice.

His first wife was Margaret, the daughter of William John Haverd. They had one son, "Thomas" his heir, and one daughter, Margaret Maud--Margaret Maud became the wife of John Meredith Watkins Morgan.

Howell's second wife was Eleanor, the daughter of Roger Vaughn, their children were:

William Powell, of Bwalt--Ancestor of the Powells of Cimen.

Thomas Powell, who married Sibil, daughter of Sir William Vaughn Knt and by this marriage there was a son, William, of Castle Madoc.

William Powell, of Castle Madoc, married Matilda, daughter of Griffith Jeffrey, of Glyntane, and by this marriage there was a son, Hugh Powell.

Hugh Powell married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Gwyn, of Trecastle, and by this marriage there were three sons and one daughter:

William Powell (his heir).

Second (Name unknown).

Thomas Powell.

Janet Powell.

Page 8

William Powell married Ann, daughter of Rees Keemys, of Llanvair ys Coed; they had by this marriage five daughters and three sons:

Hugh Powell.

Thomas Powell

Griffith Powell.

Hugh Powell was the father of Captain John Powell; also Anthony Powell.

Captain John Powell was the first Governor of the Isle of Barbadoes, under English rule.

Anthony Powell was Military Commander of Sir Walter Raleigh's Colonists, who first landed in America in 1583, at Roanoke Island, Virginia, where Fort Raleigh was built, and Powell's Point on the coast was named in his honor. He was killed at St. Augustine in 1586, in the expedition of Sir Francis Drake against the Spaniards.

Captain Nathaniel Powell, who came to Jamestown, Virginia in 1607, wrote much of John Smith's "History of Virginia", and it was he who made the first Map of Virginia, and sent it back to England, where it is now preserved in the British Museum.

In 1618, Captain Nathaniel Powell was Governor of Virginia, for a short time. He was appointed a member of the Council in 1621. He married a Miss Tracy, daughter of William Tracy, who brought a Colony to Virginia in 1620; she was the granddaughter of Sir John Tracy.

Captain Nathaniel Powell and all his family, were massacred by Opechanough, at Powell's Brook, March 22, 1622; twelve in all were murdered. No person was better known among the Indians; yet they slew him and his family, haggled their bodies and cut off his head to express their utmost scorn and cruelty.

Sir Stephen Powell, who was a brother of Captain Nathaniel Powell, had a son, William Powell, who came to

Page 9

America as a young man in 1620; this William married in this country and had children, among them a Thomas. William died and his children were scattered among friends.

Powell of Mindenhall, England, married Agnes Webb (daughter of John Webb, Esq.). From the above union came the descendants of the American family of Powells. The representative of the family in England was Nathaniel Powell, Esq., of Buckhurst Hall, Essex County.

Nathaniel Powell, Esq., of Buckhurst Hall, Essex, England, was born October 15, 1813; died 1906, leaving two daughters, now living (1935) at Southfleet, England.

The land upon which Williamsburg, Virginia, was built, was first deeded to Benjamin Powell by the King of England.

Captains William and Nathaniel Powell had large grants of land from the Crown.

In 1626, Thomas Powell (the elder brother of Captain Nathaniel Powell), then living in England, petitioned the Government in regard to his estate. They stated that William Powell, who had gotten possession of all of Nathaniel Powell's estate in Virginia, was no relative of Nathaniel Powell.

How the matter was decided there is no record, but in 1653, George Powell, Richard Powell and Mary Powell, supposed to have been the niece and nephews of Nathaniel Powell, made petition for the property, which would indicate that Nathaniel Powell and William Powell left no lineal descendants in Virginia or elsewhere.

There was a Thomas Powell in Virginia in 1660.

His son, Seymore Powell, was there in 1694.

Thomas Powell (son of Seymore Powell), was there in 1735, and Seymore Powell, son of the above Thomas Powell, was there in 1776.

Nathaniel Powell, kinsman of Captain William Powell, had been elected by vote of the people in 1619, until the arrival of Yeardley.

Nathaniel Powell was then of the Governor's Councillors.

See page 109, "Cradle of the Republic."

Nathaniel Powell was appointed by King James the 1st to draw the Map of Virginia, and write an account of the country, its people, climate and productions, and all items of interest regarding the Province.

The King gave Nathaniel Powell, in return for these services, a tract of land on the south bank of James River at Powellbrook.

The Map and History fell into the hands of John Smith, who copied the pamphlet and map, he also copied pamphlets written by six other gentlemen, and for more than 200 years they were known as, "John Smith's History and John Smith's Map of Virginia."

Alexander Brown, the Historian, of Virginia, succeeded in having the safe of the London Company opened, which contained more than 350 official documents, maps and grants. One of these was the original grant given by the King to Captain Nathaniel Powell.

From these 350 official documents, Alexander Brown wrote his two voulmes of "Genesis of the United States." The first complete and correct history of the settlement of America.

Nathaniel Powell and his wife, Joyce Tracy, daughter of Sir William Tracy, of Toddington Castle, Hayles, England, and their only child, were massacred by the Indians in 1622.

Journal of American History, Volume 1, Page 531.

CAPTAIN WILLIAM POWELL of Jamestown, Viriginia

In the records of Surry County, Va., there is evidence that he left a son, George Powell.

George Powell, on February 18, 1642, made a deed of lease for 99 years to Stephen Webb for "300 acres on Chippoake Creek and Crouches Creek. (Crouches Creek being just west of Chippoake Creek) adjoining other land of George Powell."

Page 11

George Powell is described in this lease as of "The Lower Chippoake" and signed by him in presence of witnesses. This land is a part of the land patented to Captain William Powell. Under the law of primigeniture the elder son inherited the real estate of the father to the exclusion of younger sons.

George Powell's name does not appear in any other record in Virginia after the lease to Stephen Webb, February 18, 1642, except as follows: Richard Marydale, by an instrument dated March 7, 1652, "for William Powell of Parish St. Mary's Onerges, Borough of Southwark, Surry, England, brother and heir of Captain William Powell, George Powell of this Colloyne," and his nephew, Richard Powell, and Mary, daughter of Richard, maketh claim for plantation now in possession of John Bishop, near Crouches Creek, Surry County.

July 1, 1656, Ralph Dunstan and Sam Higley under a Power of Attorney dated July 1, 1656, made to them by William Powell, of Parish of St. Mary's, Borough of Southwark, Surry, England, made a deed dated July 1, 1656, to William Batt, reciting that he, the said William Powell, was administrator of Captain William Powell, his brother and heir to George Powell, son of Captain William Powell, to 600 acres, situated on Lower Chippoake and 200 acres on Crouches Creek.

This administration of Captain William Powell was in Surry County, England, and none appears either in England or Virginia of George Powell. They had no evidence of the death of George Powell, nor did William in England, claiming to be a brother of Captain William Powell in Virginia,

inherit the land as heir of Captain William Powell, as George his son, inherited the land of Captain William Powell, and had on February 18, 1642, leased 300 acres to Stephen Webb for 99 years.

The entire recitals and proceedings were speculative conjecture.

Page 12

No administrator appears on the estate of George Powell in Virginia nor is there any evidence of his death.

George Powell in the course of years after he made the lease to Stephen Webb, February 18, 1642, most probably left Virginia.

Genealogists say: That where the line of Virginia ancestors fail in Virginia, the thread may be found in Maryland.

After Lord Baltimore planted his colony at St. Marys in 1634, he offered in 1649 and 1658, gifts of 50 acres for each settler transported into Maryland. Many left Virginia and settled in Maryland.

Did George Powell emigrate to Maryland?

We do not know whether George Powell married or left descendants.

There are facts that furnish a strong presumption that he at some time, after he made his lease to Stephen Webb, or a son of George Powell, came into Maryland, as a George Powell is listed as an inhabitant of Talbott County in 1678.

Thomas Powell, of Jamestown, was given a patent from Maryland about 1665, for transporting sundry persons into "Our province of Maryland," for 800 acres, called "Old Towne" in Talbott County, lying at the head of Northeast branch of the Chopbank river. This branch of Chopbank was later called "Tappahanock" creek. Captain William Powell's land in Virginia was in the Territory of Tappahanock.

This 800 acres granted Thomas Powell is near what is now Templeville, in Caroline County near the Delaware line. Caroline County was carved out of Queen Anne and Talbott Counties in 1773; Queen Anne was carved out of Talbott in 1706.

George Powell and his descendants settled and bought land near the 800 acres granted Thomas Powell, and near what was later called Tappahanock Creek, and Templeville for many succeeding generations.

There is a tradition that some years before the Revolution of 1776, Seymore Powell, James Powell, Nathaniel Powell

Page 13

and Lucas Powell (Levin Powell is not mentioned as one of the brothers in this connection), had an estrangement, which resulted in two of the brothers going South, and Lucas moving to Amherst County, Virginia.

The occasion of the separation was a visit of Lucas Powell, paid to the Royal Governor, when he placed his cocked hat under his arm and made the Governor a very profound obeisance.

His brothers construed this into a lack of Colonial patriotism.

One of the Powell brothers was a Royalist during the Revolution. He went back to Wales, to the old home of the family. After two generations his descendants emigrated back to America.

Captain John Powell is mentioned (Smith's History of Virginia) as one of the first leading adventurers to the planting of the fortune isle (the Barbadoes). Captain Henry Powell brought thither the first planters, forty Englishmen, and seven or eight negroes. He was one of the first planters who brought the colony to the Barbadoes in 1627, and after landing he got thirty Indians, men, women and children of the Arawacos, enemies to the Caribs and Spaniards (Smith's History of Virginia, page 594).

Sir Stephen Powell, brother of Nathaniel Powell, was one of the six Judges of Chancery of the Kings Bench, London, England. He was a member of the Virginia Company in 1619. He had a son, Captain John Powell, who came to Virginia in 1622, the year of the Indian massacre. He was Knighted at Theobalds, July 21, 1604.

In 1651, Benjamin Powell, of York County, Virginia, made a deed of land patented by his father, John Powell. This patent was given February 6th, 1635.

Again on June 7th, 1657, Benjamin Powell, of New Poquasoa, York County, Virginia, deeds land to his brother, William Powell, and on October 5, 1655, there is a deed from

Page 14

William Powell, of York County, and his wife, Mary (Tarpley) Powell, daughter of William Tarpley.

Benjamin Powell was elected a member of the Virginia Council, held at Williamsburg, Virginia, 1767 and he was appointed a Justice of the Peace in 1784.

In 1685, there were five Powell brothers who came to the English Colonies in America from Brecon, Wales, stopping first in New Jersey. One of the brothers remained in New Jersey and married a German woman and had twenty-one children, twenty sons and one daughter.

The other brothers scattered, one went to Ohio, one to Pennsylvania and two went to Virginia.

Ambrose Powell married Mary Bledsoe, daughter of George Bledsoe of Maryland. His will is dated 1704.

Dr. Robert C. Powell, in his "Sketch of Col. Levin C. Powell," 1879, says: "William Powell was a grandson of Capt. William Powell, who sailed with John Smith from Blackwall, December 19, 1606, and entered Chesepeake Bay, April 20th, 1607."

Brown in his "Genesis of the United States," gives the name of this Powell, as Nathaniel.

The William Powell, from whom the Dr. Robert C. Powell line descended, was doubtless the one given by Brown, page 971, as "William Powell, Gentleman, an incorporator of the second Charter Virginia Company of London, who paid 25 pounds subscription, came to Virginia with Gates, 1611, was the gunner of James City; member of First House of Burgesses, July 30, 1619. Pace first told him of the plot, revealed by chance, for murdering the Colonists March 21, 1622."

Branch of the Powell Family.

Mr. William P. Powell asserts that neither the Virginia or Long Island Powells are related to the New England Powells, quote:

"Our ancestors belong to a third group that came from England and landed at the Massachusetts Bay Colony and were among the very early New England pioneers. A few Powells landed at Boston but I have not found that they located there permanently. The first one who left a definite

record is a Robert Powell, who came to Ipswich, Mass., from Tanton, England, in 1653. The following record is all I have been able to find out about him."

Vol. II. Page 235--Will of William Moore of Ipswich filed Sept. 26th, 1671. "To my daughter, Mary Powell, one cow, etc."

Hammat Papers, "Early Inhabitants of Ipswich," Page 267. Powell, Robert, married Mary Moore, daughter of William Moore who conveys to her January 20th, 1660, 10 acres of land in Exeter.

In 1638 a company of English landed at Boston under the leadership of Davenport and Eaton. Almost immediately they went by boat to settle at New Haven, Conn. Among them there was a Thomas Powell and his wife, Priscilla. He was born in England in 1616 and died in New Haven in 1681. Their son, William, was born in New Haven in 1639 and he died in 1681. There is no record of his marriage. A daughter, Hannah (born 1641 died 1710) she married Thomas Tuttle. There is no evidence of any other descendants of this New Haven family.

William Powell I, of Wethersfield, Conn., is the first to whom the family of William P. Powell of Amherst, Mass., can positively be traced. Where he came from and when he came to Wethersfield is not known. The inference, supported by circumstantial evidence, is that he was the son of Robert Powell of Ipswich, mentioned above. His probable age at the time of his marriage supports this idea and the names of his children are like his own family names, while the lack of information about Robert Powell's children throws no negative evidence against this theory. Further, there seems to be no record of any other Powell family from which it would be possible for him to come. Later there are other Powells in other parts of the colony that have no recorded antecedents and may be the descendants of other children of this Robert Powell who dropped out of sight at Ipswich.

Page 20

The first authentic record of this William Powell of Wethersfield, so far discovered is in the records of the town of Wethersfield, Conn., when he married Sarah Francis, on Feb. 26th, 1690.

WILLIAM POWELL, 1.

Married: Sarah Francis (???).

They had:

Son, no name, b. Oct. 29, 1691. (probably died young).

Robert 2;

William 2;

Mary 2; b. Nov. 1699.

Thomas 2; b. Oct. 31, 1701.

Abigail 2; b. Nov. 23, 1703.

It is probable that the first son named died as there is no further record concerning him. The two sons Robert and William must have been obliged to shift for themselves very young as in January 1703-04, Selectmen of the town apprenticed Thomas, aged about two, and Mary, about four, to John Dix and Edward Bulkley. A year later Abigail was apprenticed to Nathaniel Hun. There is also evidence that the mother, Sarah, was cared for. Undoubtedly the times were very hard for the whole family and there is no record of the death of either William or his wife Sarah. There is no information concerning the three younger children but possibly Thomas married and settled in Windsor where there was a Thomas Powell family.

ROBERT POWELL, 2.

(William 1).

Married: Anne Goodrich (daughter Wm. Goodrich); Jan. 3, 1716.

They had:

John 3;

Elijah 3;

Miles 3;

He had twelve children of which eleven lived to grow up. His son, Ashael A., born 1794, lived in Lanesboro, where he died in 1869. He had seven children, five of whom were living in 1885. As early as 1759 there were John, Ephriam, Miles and Elijah Powell, brothers, and heads of families living in Lanesboro, Mass."

In another place, "Powells of Lanesboro in the Revolutionary War, Abiel, Ashael, Caleb, David, Ephriam, Elijah, Sr., Elijah, Jr., John, Miles, Robert, Thomas and William."

In 1787, Miles Powell owned a general store in Lanesboro and is buried there where he died in 1835, aged 80. His father, Col. Miles Powell, died January 17, 1791, aged 62, and his wife, Jemima, died October 17, 1801, aged 70, both

Page 24

are buried in Lanesboro. He was a son of Robert Powell of Meriden, Conn.

Mrs. E. E. Barney living in New Rochelle, N. Y., in 1930 states that her grandfather, Dr. Elijah Powell, Jr., was born in Kinderhook, N. Y., in 1771 and that his father came from Connecticut, probably a son or grandson of Elijah, one of the four brothers who came from Meriden.

Most of the Powell families now living in the states north and west of the Ohio River are descended from the four brothers who came to Berkshire County, Mass., from Meriden, Conn., and a large number of the D. A. R. trace their lineage to these four men.

WILLIAM POWELL, 2.

(William 1).

There is no known record of the date of his first marriage, but the Hartford Land Records show that he married Elizabeth, only daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Pantry Welles. (Vol. I, page 35.)

The vital records of Wethersfield record the birth on August 24th, 1722, of William, son of William and Elizabeth Powell. He must have soon moved to Hartford, the home of his wife's family and the following entry is found in the records of the Second Congregational Church of Hartford:

BAPTIZED:

No. 1215, 1724, July 12. WILLIAM, son of William and Elizabeth Powell.

No. 1219, 1724, September 19. ELIZABETH, daughter of William and Elizabeth Powell.

In 1930 there was a gravestone in the cemetery in the rear of the First or Center Church of Hartford bearing this inscription:

'Here lieth the body of Mrs. Elizabeth, wife of William Powell who departed this July 4, day 1725, aged 27 years."

William Powell, late of Milford) aged 16 years, this day personally appeared and declared that he made choice of Lieutenant Jonathan Farrand of said Woodbury to be his Guardian."

(Note: This Peter Powell is the only descendant of William Powell 2, who served in the Revolutionary War.)

(COPY) The Will of Peter Powell, dated April 16th, 1830, mentions his wife, Eunice, son, Peter W., and his daughter, Elsie R., filed with the Will are eleven documents including inventory of his estate, executor's bond, and final account.

Peter Powell 4; is buried in the same lot with his mother and brother, John, in the old Judea Cemetery, at Washington, Conn. In view of the fact that there is no record of her death or that of her son, Peter W., it is probable that the son, who was about 24 when his father died, moved to Ohio or Michigan, and that his mother went with him. Both daughters married in Washington, Conn.

Page 42

They had:

Thomas 6; b. August 1641; Died December 28, 1728.

Capt. Thomas Powell was engaged in the sack and rum trade. On one of his trips from the Barbadoes, West Indies, to New York and Halifax in 1653, he stopped at Huntington Harbor, Long Island, to visit his friend, Capt. Thomas Matthews (formerly of London), who was running a boat between Huntington and Flushing, N. Y., carrying goods.

Capt. Thomas Matthews was also a "Cordwainer" (shoemaker); it is presumed that Capt. Thomas Powell's wife had died, so he apprenticed his son, Thomas (who was at the time 12 years of age), to Capt. Thomas Matthews.

THIS BOY, THOMAS POWELL, IS THE PROGENITOR OF ALL THELONG ISLAND POWELLS; MOST ALL OF THE POWELLS IN NEW YORK STATE; MANY OF THE POWELLS IN NEW JERSEY, PENNSYLVANIA, MARYLAND AND OTHER STATES.

To simplify matters we here change this boy, Thomas Powell, number in descent from 6 to 1.

A SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF THOMAS POWELL, 1.

Born August, 1641; Died December 28, 1721.

In the whirligig of time, it is difficult to picture our pioneer settlers. They did not sit for paintings, and generally were too busy getting a living from the soil to do much writing.

THE TURMOIL OF THE CROMWELL WARS, AND THE UP-SETS OF THE STUARTS WERE ALL BASED ON RELIGIOUS DIFFERENCES.

Many of those interested in religious questions wrote, of course, on their beliefs.

It was at this time that GEORGE FOX launched Quakerism, which Thomas Powell took up, and followed all his life.

Page 43

The Court Records of Huntington, Long Island, N. Y., next introduced THOMAS POWELL No. 1 to our notice as follows:

AT A COURT HELD IN HUNTINGTON JULY 29, 1662.

Thomas Matthews, plaintiff, against Joanna Wood, widow and Administratrix to Jonas Wood.

An action of debt for fifty-four pounds 2 shillings and two pence. Mr. John Simmons of Hempstead, appeared in the case as attorney for Joanna Wood.

After relating the circumstances of the case Thomas Powell gave testimony in writing that, "What was in my Master's book--that particular about Master's Good Wood and Good Higbie touching the six pipes of wine and three hhds of rum,--when it was writ my Master read it to him or them and asked if it was well, and one of them answered it was. This was at Oysterbay in Daniel Whitehead's store.

Living with my Master almost nine years I never knew my Master's books question in the least."

J. Matthews produced his books in Court and the case was decided in his favor.

                           JAMES CHICHESTER, 
                           RICHARD WILLIAMS, 
                           THOMAS JONES, 
                           SAMUEL TITUS, 
                                       Jurymen. 

Thomas Matthews sometimes called Captain Matthews was at Flushing, L. I., in 1649, trading with John Bowne delivering goods, &c. In 1659 he was bringing goods in partnership with Jonas Wood and Edward Higbie.

He died December 7, 1686.

In 1667 Thomas Powell was Constable, John Todd, John Rogers Overseers, for Huntington, L. I.

Under the Duke's Laws, promulgated when the English took possession in 1865, 8 Overseers were to be chosen the

Page 44

first year, to hold office 2 years, & 4 to be elected every two years afterwards, and a Constable was to be elected every year out of the Overseers of the previous year.

The Constable and Overseers managed the Town affairs, and had power to make orders & rules concerning fences, highways and similar matters. Constables were to attend Courts, and they had power to arrest, those who were overtaken with strong drink, or found swearing, or Sabbath breaking, Vagrant night walkers, provided taken in sight of Constable,

or proven information from others or if in beer or disorderly places.

"Every Constable shall have a Staff six feet long with the Kings arms on it, as a badge of his authority."

The Town Court had Jurisdiction of assault, slander, and disorderly conduct generally. One offense was defined "as giving false news and lying about another." The penalty was a fine of 40 shilling if Paid" if not paid to sit in the stock or be whipped 40 strokes and give satisfaction.

Thomas Powell was then 26 years old.

Huntington Records show that Thomas Powell was frequently elected to fill important positions in the Township--the first of which appears to have been in 1663, when at the age of 22 he was made Recorder, this office he held most of the time for about 20 years.

In 1666 Thomas Powell, John James, James Chichester, Ebenezer Platt, Isaac Platt, Thomas Platt, John Bailey & Jonas Wood; were Trustees of the Freeholders of the Town of Huntington, and their successors. and the Patent was issued in their names, on behalf of the Company.

In 1684 T. Powell and one of the others were sent to Gov. Nichols, to obtain a patent from him. These patents were both at Huntington a few years since, probably are there still.

The court consisted of a Justice of the Peace (or in his absence) Constable and two Overseers.

Thomas Powell was Constable in 1667, 1668, 1669, had to carry a club four feet long. Appointed Surveyor 1670, to

Page 45

lay out land in the East Riding. Overseer 1672, 1680 &c &c.

1686 Chosen Committee Man to go to Southampton to act with others on behalf of the Town.

1666 Attorney for Thomas Matthews in the sale of land in Oysterbay, Joseph Ludlam, Purchaser.

The following is on record at Huntington 1670. Whereas, Henry Whitson of Huntington, deceased in the year 1669, and after the will was proved according to law, the estate being divided by order and consent of the widow of Henry, and Thomas Whitson son of deceased, and 2d Thomas Whitson being under age,--he with the consent of his Grandfather Foster and the rest of his friends have thought good to make choice of Thomas Powell of Huntington to be his Trustee and Guardian of him the said Thomas Whitson, for the care and supervision of the Estate of him the said Thomas Whitson until he accomplish the age of one and twenty years, during which time the aforesaid, Thomas Whitson doth promise not to bargain, sell or alienate any of his Estate without the leave and consent of his said Guardian, but in all things expedient be subject to his advice and counsel,

                        as witness my hand 
                                    THOMAS WHITSON. 

In 1663, we find THOMAS POWELL No. 1 was serving as Recorder and Purchasing Agent. A deed dated December 8th, 1663, gave him title to a piece of land.

In 1665 he was still Recroder--A Recorder's functions must have been similar to those of Town Clerk.

THOMAS POWELL No. 1 must of married about this time, but the name of his wife is unknown.

There were 8 children by this marriage:

Thomas 2.

Abigail 2.

Elizabeth 2.

John 2.

Jonas 2.

Page 46

Caleb 2.

Wait 2.

Elisha 2.

They all were probably born in Huntington, Long Island, N. Y.

In 1667 THOMAS POWELL 1, served as Constable.

In 1667 there are records of him being possessed of considerable real estate.

In 1670, when he was 29 years of age, THOMAS POWELL 1, was chosen to lay out the lands of the town to purchasers.

In 1678 the Council ordered the Constable and Overseers of Huntington to distrain for Church and Ministers Rates, but the order does not appear to have been attended to for several years. Thomas Powell was Overseer in 1681. Same year we find charged against him for Ministers Rates, the following sums, viz:

      1676.   1.   15.  00.    1679.  1.  10.  09. 
      1677.   1.   13.  03.    1680.  1.  02.  05. 
      1678.   1.   09.  06.    1681.  10  04.  11. 
    Altogether L8.   15.  10. 
THOMAS POWELL, being a devout Quaker, he refused to pay Church taxes, which under the British law was compulsory for the support of the Church of England.

He consistently refused to pay them and he was ordered by a Writ from the King to appear at Court at Riverhead, to show cause, why they should not be taken from him by force.

There does not appear to be any record of a settlement of the claim in any manner, and is SUPPOSED THAT HE WAS SO LIKED BY HIS NEIGHBORS AND ASSOCIATES, THAT THE AUTHORITIES LET THE CASE DROP.

In 1682, he refused TO SERVE LONGER AS CONSTABLE, BECAUSE, IT WAS NECESSARY TO TAKE AN OATH, WHICH THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS OPPOSED THEN, AS THEY DO TODAY.

Page 47

Meantime Thomas Powell sold his property in Huntington and bought a large tract of wilderness, of the Marsapaque Indians, called it Bethpage, took possession in 1688, built a house for his eldest son, Thomas.

Thomas Powell got his deed from the Indians in 1695, and has been said sold one third to T. Whitson in 1700. Thomas Powell purchased a second plot of the Indians in 1699. The Deeds are both Recorded at Jamaica.

The following is a copy of the boundaries of the two purchases, with the names and marks of Indians who made the sale.

1695.

Choppy, and others for œ140, sold to Thomas Powell Sen., land Beginning at the west Corner, at a dirty hole upon the brushy plains near Mannetto hill, from thence up a hollow the south side of Mannetto hill and out of that hill across the hills eastward pretty near Huntington South line to the bushy plains on the east side of the hills, and so along the east side of the hollow that goes to the east branch of Marsepequa the head of the swamp being the South east Corner, and from

THOMAS POWELL, 1. It seems: "Was on his toes" all the time, he bought two tracts from the Indians.

One of the Deeds is dated 1695, and the other 1699.

He then sold one-third of the above to T. WHITSON, in 1700.

The above Deeds are recorded at Jamaica, N. Y.

Just when THOMAS POWELL, 1, built his first residence in Bethpage, is problematic, but undoubtedly was the first white man's house built there. He occupied it with his second wife for a time, until he built another house which he moved into, and gave the first residence that he built to his oldest son, THOMAS POWELL, 2nd, as a wedding present.

The first house was built on the north side of the Bethpage Turnpike, just west of the Babylon Branch of the Long

Page 51

Island Railroad at Farmington. This house was torn down in 1931. The property was known as the Lawrence Farm.

The second residence that THOMAS POWELL, 1, built is still standing. It was inherited by the late John C. Merritt and is at present owned by Prof. Kemmerer and his brother. It is located on the east side of Merritt Road, a few hundred feet north of the Bethpage Turnpike, at Farmingdale, Long Island, N. Y.

In the next few years THOMAS POWELL 1, is busy looking after his lands, and his new house, where all his children

by his second marriage were born.

Most of these children by his second marriage were married at their father's home to residents of Jericho or Westbury, Long Island, and into the Willis, Seaman and Willets families.

3, 30, 1739. To the Monthly Meeting of Friends at Westbury:

DEAR FRIENDS--These lines may acquaint you that I am under concern of mind for my misstep in ye way that I was married.

Which was on this wise. I having made my application to her that is now my wife, not doubting but that we might come before the meeting and be allowed to pass the same, and having gone so far that we could not reverse our desires and being discouraged from making application to the preparative Meeting by some of the members thereof, did unadvisedly and without ye counsel and advice of Friends procure a license from the Governor and was married by a Justice of the Peace.

Which hasty and unadvised marriage, contrary to the practice and good order used and established amongst Friends I do condemn, and do desire that for the future I may walk more circumspectly.

                       From your friend, 

                               RICHARD POWELL. 

Page 52

Richard Powell's acknowledgement was accepted by the Meeting, as satisfactory, and he remained a useful member of the Society the rest of his life.

EXTRACT FROM THE MINUTES OF WESTBURY MONTHLY

MEETING OF FRIENDS HELD IN 1762-3.

"In the matter of Henry Powell marrying out of the unity of his Friends, to his first cousin, which was again resumed and considered of, it appears to be the sense and judgment of the meeting that inasmuch as he was sufficiently treated with in a dissuasive manner to desist from proceeding in marriage with his near kinswoman before marriage, and he hath not received the counsel and advice of Friends, but gone contrary to the rules of our Discipline, and left Friends. Therefore, he is disowned as a member in unity with us, until he is sensible that he has gone contrary to the order of Truth and condemns the same with sincerity of mind to the satisfaction of Friends.

                                 SAMUEL WILLIS,

BETHPAGE BOOK OF RECORDS

In 1695 Thomas Powell purchased from the Indian Proprietors a large tract of land, on a part of which he had been then resident more than seven years. This deed is not recorded in the Town Records, nor is that for the "Rim of the Woods" purchase which he made later from the Indians. He gave or sold one-third of the entire tract in 1700, to Thomas Whitson, said to have been his former apprentice at the (*)cordwainers trade.

 

((*) "Cordwainer", a shoe-maker.)


Mr. Joshua P. Jervis, of Copiague, L. I., (1935) a Civil Engineer and Surveyor, states that the original Bethpage Book of Records was used as evidence in court by the late Henry C. Murphy, a lawyer, of Montague Street, Brooklyn. While

Page 53

the book was in his office, Mr. Murphy had this copy made.

It is in a leather bound record book of 360 pages, 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches, page size. The copy is in a large fair hand, the ink somewhat faded. It is not a page for page copy, but the begining of each page in the original is exactly shown in the copy, in red ink. Herein the page number of the Copy is shown as in all the Town Records, thus --12--; the page number of the original is shown in square brackets. On pages 6 to 9 of the copy (probably from unnumbered pages of the original) is genealogy data on the Powell and Whitson families, apparently the basis of the subdivisions. With page 10 begin the land records. At the top of each page of the land records is a caption, "As Record of Thomas Whitson's Lands." The date of each allotment, and its acreage, given in the margin, are given respectively at the beginning and end of each description. Certain words which were errors in the original are underscored in the Copy.

He was placed in command of one of the companies sent in pursuit of the Indians. He was said to have been murdered by the Indians. This was a mistake--he was not murdered, but died of sickness.

A letter written by George Harrison to his brother John Harrison in England, dated February 3rd, 1623, says "This present day died Captain Powell, that was gunner of James City".

It is said that Captain William Powell, came from Parish of St. Marys onerges, alias St. Savior, near the Borough of Southwark, Surry County, England. He obtained patents to two tracts of land, one for 200 acres and another for 550 acres--this land was situated in what was then known as the "Territory of Tappahanock, on the south side of James River over against James City."

The First Legislative Assembly in America met at Jamestown, Va., July 1619, the year before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, Mass., Captain William Powell, represented Jamestown in that Assembly.

Laws formulated by Parliment for the Government of America were brought to Jamestown by George Yeardley the Royal Governor, he presided at the Assembly. Page 6, Journof the House of Burgesses in Virginia, 1619-1658-1659--See: "Cradle of Republic," Page 105.

Captain Powell was chairman of the committee to examine the laws sent over and select such as were desirable for the Government of America; such laws not desirable were replaced by laws enacted by the Assembly.

Captain William Powell married: (???) Stitt, and after his death, his widow married: Edward Blaney.

There was a Captain Samuel Matthews who lived in and owned nearly 3000 acres of land in Warwick County, Va., adjoining James City County on the East. In 1625, an action

Page 169

was brought by Edward Blaney against Captain Matthews to recover certain land which Edward Blaney claimed in the right of Captain William Powell's children. He was defeated in the suit. The names of these children are not given.

Shortly after his marriage to Sally Harrison (Daughter of Burr Harrison, of Chapawamsic, he moved to Louden County, Virginia, and purchased 500 acres of land on a portion of which the town of Middleburg now stands. He was a planter and merchant, but abandoned his business at the outbreak of the American Revolution and became active in all of the movements in opposition to the British Government. He was one of the first to take commission in that patriotic organization known as Minute Men and in 1775, as Major of Minute Men from Louden County, Virginia was engaged in harassing Lord Dunmore's troops in the vicinity of Norfolk, Portsmouth and Hampton. In January 1777, he was appointed by General George Washington, Lieutenant Colonel of the 16th Regiment of Virginia Continentals which he recruited and equipped, and in the Fall of that year went with

his command to White March Plains, near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the American Army was then stationed.

The severe weather at Valley Forge undermined his natural weak constitution, resulting in a prolonged illness in camp and he was sent home on a furlough in order that he might regain his health.

Office of Clerk of Court (Basement) File p. Divisions of Lands, etc. To the worshipful Wake County Court The petition of Caswell & Jesse Powell showeth to you worship that they are Tenants in Common of a certain Tract of Land lying on Neuse River whereon Pleasant Powell your petitioner's mother now resides, containing 900 & 50 acres by Estimation your petioners pray that the proper process may issue, & that a Division may be made between your petitioners agreeable to Law.

                         W. Seawell, Atto. for Petitioners. 

The following interesting letter was sent me by Miss Pauline A. Powell, 29 Queen Square, St. John, New Brunswick, Canada.

"I regret to say that I cannot give you the records of the family back to 1000 A. D.

When I visited the family in Wales, I neglected to copy the pedigree. I fancy my brother thought I had done so, as I intended to do when I was last at the old family seat. My hostess was unexpectedly called away, so I had to leave for

Page 234

Canada without being able to accomplish it. I can not detain you with an explanation but am not able to get the records you desire at the present time.

My ancestor quarreled with his parents and left his Anglican Church and became a Quaker and bid adieu to the Manor, to which he was the heir and came to America. His family and descendants lived the God-fearing, honest, peaceful and dull lives of Quakers, apparently contributing nothing to the national life of Canada.

At the time of the Revolution they were loyal to the Crown and their property was confiscated by the rebels, the family maltreated, so subsequently they severed all connections with the United States. What records they carried away with them were burnt when fire consumed the house of one of the family.

I am, however, very proud of my ancestor, who with his six sons, gave up for his King a delightful climate and a splendid property and home for a life of hardship in the Northern forest with seven months of winter.

They obtained a large grant of land at the mouth of the Richibucto River and within a few years had a thriving village and prosperous ship-yards.

Unfortunately, early deaths and other misfortunes overtook the family, therefore they never played the role in the local history of the Province.

My great-great Uncle Jacob Powell, was after his father's death the head of the family in Richibucto. As a young man en route to England, in one of his own vessels, he was commanded by a French frigate to surrender when off the coast near Sable Island. This he refused to do and defied them by opening fire. As a result he towed the frigate into Halifax as a prize of war. The Admiralty feted him and when he eventually reached England he was presented with a watch in honor of his victory (which watch we now have in our possession).

Page 235

His firm had branches in the Coastal Cities, but when the Quebec house failed, owing to the manager, it was six months before the head office heard of it, due to the difficulty of winter communications, and this was disastrous more or less to the firm. Another brother took a fleet of vessels to Newfoundland for sale, after he and my grandfather had built them, but neither a vessel of the fleet or a soul on board of them was ever heard of again. About the same time my great grandfather and his wife died, as well as the uncle of "the fight".

A short time after the executors and the clerks in the office became rich men.

My father said that his father (my grandfather), was one, if not the ablest men he ever knew, but his Quaker inheritances and misfortunes of childhood made him prefer a life of retirement and reading.

I trust that your book will be a great success--it must have taken a great deal of courage to attempt such a task, the Powells in the United States of America seem to be legion, but the American biographies do not seem to contain very many of their names. Mrs. Mary (Powell) Bunker of Wantagh, N. Y., who wrote Long Island genealogies said: That the Historical Mayor of Philadelphia was a relative of her family, but in the Philadelphia Museum his crest is not the same as ours. Mrs. Bunker thought we were related to her.

                      I am, yours faithfully, 
                                  Pauline A. Powell. 

(NOTE)

I think that Mrs. Bunker is in error as to the Mayor of Philadelphia being a relative. I think she was confused with Samuel Stringham Powell who was Mayor of Brooklyn, N. Y., in 1857-58-59-60. He was a relative of Mrs. Bunker.

ALVIN LESLIE POWELL

(Illuminating Engineer)

Born at Rockville Centre, N. Y., April 6, 1889. Son of Alvin Tredwell and Helen (Loskamp) Powell.

Widely known for his many and varied activities in the field of illuminating engineering, is Supervising Engineer, Incandescent Lamp Department of the General Electric Company, Atlantic Division.

Graduated from the School of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University in 1910; entered the employ of the Edison Lamp Works that same year. It was here that his first work on illuminating engineering problems was done. One of the most interesting of technical writers, is the author of many articles on the varied phrases of lighting. His ability to express the technical features of lighting in non-technical language has made him popular as a lecturer.

His efforts and knowledge of lighting principals and practices led him to Europe in 1924 and 1932, where he investigated lighting conditions and cooperated with various European interests throughout England, France, Germany and Italy in lighting development.

In 1928 he served as Chairman of the Program Committee of the International Illumination Congress which met in this country.

At the present time he is President of the Illuminating Engineering Society, a Fellow of the A. I. E. E., member of International Commission on Illumination, the Architectural League, and Sigma XI. He is the Chairman of the Committee on Light in Architecture and Decoration of the I. E. S. and a member of numerous other committees in this and other national engineering organizations.

As manager of the Engineering Department of the Edison Lamp Works he supervised the design of lighting installations throughout the entire country.

It is reasonably safe to state that there has not been a major development of any magnitude throughout the country

Page 249

in the last two decades that he has not had some part in the project. Sometimes this has been relatively small and of a consulting nature, other times rather extensive work has been carried on by him. Such installations as Radio City Music Hall, R. K. O. Center Theatre, National Broadcasting Studios, Riverside Church, Kansas City Art Museum, Springfield Art Gallery, Century of Progress, etc., etc.

THE WRECK OF THE BARQUE MEXICO

January 2nd, 1837

The American barque "Mexico" of 300 tons, sailed from the port of Liverpool, commanded by Capt. Charles Winslow, her cargo consisting of crockery, railroad iron and coal.

She sailed from Liverpool, October 12, 1836, with a crew of 12 men, the Captain and 112 passengers, the greater portion of whom were emigrants. After a most disagreeable and boisterous passage of 69 days, at the most in-element season of the year, the vessel arrived off Sandy Hook, on Saturday night, December 31st at 11 o'clock and lay to, on discovering the light upon the Highlands of New Jersey.

On the morning of the following day, she bore up from

the Hook, making the usual signals of distress, and also for a pilot. None, however, made their appearance, and the Captain

Page 253

being apprehensive of rough weather stood out to Sea, under the most discouraging and distressing circumstances.

The voyage had thus far been unusually long and tedious; the passengers had generally exhausted their stores of provisions, and had for some time been allowed one biscuit a day each, from the ship, a quantity barely sufficient to sustain life, to which was added all the direful apprehensions of still more protracted suffering, from the want of a pilot, and the danger of attempting at that season of the year, to enter the harbor without one.

The weather was cold in the extreme, attended by a violent temptest of snow. On Monday, the Captain again approached the Hook, and also signalized for a pilot, in which he was equally unsuccessful. With an anxiety not to be described, he was compelled, amid the intense severity of the weather and the almost unspeakable suffering of the crew, to keep away from the land during the remainder of the day and ensuing night. On Tuesday morning at 5 o'clock, after the most terrible buffeting with the waves, the crew and passengers being nearly perished with the cold, the vessel drifted toward shore and struck the beach at Hempstead South (which is nearly opposite where Freeport, Long Island is now). The thermometer was now below zero, and there was a high surf breaking on the shore. The main and mizzen masts were immediately cut away; the rudder was torn off by the collision with the bottom; the water was rising in the ship's hold, and the spray from the waters of the sea, dashing incessantly over the vessel, was instantly converted into ice.

The wretched and despairing passengers, driven from below by the accumulation of water, and without any means whatever of shelter or protection from the cold, crowded together upon the forward deck, expecting every moment to be washed overboard or frozen to death, as everything was encrusted in ice.

Some secured their money and other valuables about their bodies, and each clung with death-like tenacity to those they held most dear.

Page 254

In this extremity of despair, when scarce a ray of hope remained, men, women and children, from the sire to the lisping infant, embraced each other with what feeble power remained, and tried in vain to encourage and support each other. In this horrible condition they remained until secured by death from further agony. Husbands, wives and children were found, congealed together in one frozen mass. It was, in all respects, a scene of terror which language is incapable of depicting, and which only the most fertile imagination can conceive.

On the morning of the 2nd of January, CAPT. RAYNOR ROCK SMITH, with two of his sons and a few others crossed the South Bay upon the ice, dragging their boat with them a distance of 7 miles. They arrived at the beach, determined if possible to afford some sort of relief to the suffering victims. There were some dozens of other rescuing crews with their boats upon the scene, but they soon found that any attempt to reach the vessel in the (then) state of the surf, would only be to sacrifice their own lives, to no purpose.

The miserable strangers yet clinging to the mass of ice which the vessel presented, poured forth their supplications and cries for assistance in a manner which could hardly fail to melt the stoutest heart. Whereupon the heroic Capt. Raynor Rock Smith took to his boat, shouting for volunteers to man his boat. His two sons and five others answered his appeal. His boat was launched in the surf, and in the peril of being filled or upset, was able to reach the bowsprit of the vessel, where the captain, four passengers and three of the crew, who were upon the bowsprit of the barque, dropped into Captain Smith's boat and were conveyed with difficulty to the shore. The danger which had been incurred, the immense size of the breakers on the beach, the extreme cold, and the approach of night, although Capt. Raynor Rock Smith prayed and pled

with his valiant crew to make another voyage to the vessel, they refused to accede to his plea. He asked for other volunteers, but in vain. None dared to go.

Page 255

Turning away from the horrible scene, they made their way across the frozen waters of the bay, aiding and supporting those they had rescued. But what must have been the feelings of those left behind upon the ship, when they saw those from whom (alone) any relief was to be expected, departing from their sight, can only be conceived. Their agonizing breasts must have been filled with horror.

Thus, on that fated night, perished in the most awful manner, 116 human beings, 3000 miles from their homes, and within a few miles of the Port for which they set out. Death, in its most appalling form, came to their relief, and their cries of anguish and despair were soon hushed in eternal silence.

Seventy days had elapsed since leaving their native country, and on the shores, within 25 miles of the port they sought with so much anxiety, they found a watery grave.

     "Thus perished, one by one, that pilgrim crowd. 
      The silvered-haired, the beautiful, the young. 
      Some were found wrapped, as in a crystal shroud 
        of waves congealed that tombed them where 
        they clung. 
      Some on the sand the sounding breakers flung. 
      Linked in affection's agonized embrace; 
      And to the Gazer's eye the warm tears spring, 
        as he beheld two babes a group of grace, locked 
        in each other's arms, and pillowed face to face." 

A majority of the passengers were children and youth of both sexes, as appeared from a list by the Collector at Liverpool; the oldest 52, and the youngest less than 2 years of age.

About 60 bodies were finally recovered and interred January 11th, 1837, in the Sand Hill Church Cemetery at Rockville Centre, L. I.

The citizens of New York sensible to the meritorious services of Capt. Raynor Rock Smith, presented him with a Gold Cup, with this inscription engraved upon it.

"Presented to Captain Raynor Rock Smith, of Hempstead South, Long Island, by a number of his fellow citizens, of the

Page 256

City of New York, as a token of regard for his noble daring, performing at the peril of his life, in saving eight persons, from the wreck of the fated Mexico on the second day of January, 1837."

HENRY A. POWELL, K. C.

Mr. Powell was born at Richibucto, April 6, 1855, and died April 15, 1930. Son of the late Edmund and Ann Forster Powell. His great-grandfather, Caleb Powell, a United Empire Loyalist, came to New Brunswick with 12 sons and was given a grant along the Richibucto River, which included the site of the town of Richibucto.

His early education was received at the Richibucto Grammar School, and for a time the late Rt. Hon. A. Bonar Law was a school mate. Later he attended Mount Allison, from which he graduated in 1875. Later he received his M. A. and D. C. L. from the same institution. He studied law at Sackville and was admitted to the Bar of New Brunswick in 1880, and was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1894. He received high praise from some of the Law Lords for his argument of Privy Council Appeal brought before them.

He was elected to the House of Assembly in 1890 and re-elected in 1891, 1892 and 1895. In 1894, on the appointment of the late Lieutenant-Governor Wood to the Senate, he resigned his seat in the Legislature and successfully contested Westmoreland County for the House of Commons in the ensuing bye-election and again in the following general election. He at once took an active part in the turbulent and closing session of the Parliament, which introduced the remedial bill. Mr. Powell's speech on the bill was sent over to the Vatican.

During his term in Parliament he was closely associated with his chief, the late Sir Charles Tupper, who gave him charge of the criticism of the Government's Department of Railways and Canals. He was defeated in the election of 1900.

After breaking a hip he moved to Saint John from Sackville

Page 265

in 1907, and formed a partnership for the practice of law with W. H. Harrison.

In 1911 he was appointed by the King to a membership on the International Joint Commission, which post he held until two years ago, when he resigned because of ill health.

While a member of the Commission, he had charge on behalf of Canada of several committees for the investigation of affairs between the two countries, one of which was the pollution of boundry waters. The report he prepared has been accepted as authoritative by specialists in that line throughout the world.

In religion he is not really affiliated with any denomination, but was most broad in his sympathies. His Biblical and theological knowledge was great, due to the instructions of a devout Anglican mother and a strong Presbyterian father.

In politics Mr. Powell had been a Liberal Conservative. He has always had great enthusiasm for the British Empire, which he looked upon as the greatest social and economic asset the world had ever known. Because of this devotion he had refused lucrative and flattering offers to join legal firms in New York and elsewhere in the United States. He was a member of the Board of Regents of Mount Allison University and a member of many organizations for the material and cultural welfare of his country. Pressure of work, and his frequent absences from home on legal business, or for the International Joint Committee, prevented him from doing as much as he wished to do for the welfare of the community. He gave from his library many hundreds of volumes to assist several libraries in their usefulness.

The reading of books was his chief recreation and pastime. Fine scenery and good paintings were his greatest pleasures.

He married, in 1879, Mary Alberta, a daughter of the Rev. G. B. Payson. He has one son, Ralph Edmund, on the staff of the Montreal General Hospital, and a daughter, Miss

Polly, at home. He has a brother in the United States, and

Page 266

a brother, Clifford, living in Sackville; a niece, Mrs. Pearson, of Moncton, and a nephew, H. A. Allison, of Calgary, Alberta. The late William Powell, of Moncton, was a brother.

He served two terms in the Michigan House of Representatives, two terms in the State Senate, and was a member of the Constitutional Convention.

His other son, Ralph Waterbury Powell, is a teacher. He taught eleven years in the College of Yale-in-China at Changsha, China, and since 1927 has been at Ohio State University, where he is Associate Professor of Mechanics.

JOHN WESLEY POWELL, 2.

(Explorer, Scientist)

Born March 24, 1834, at Mount Morris, N. Y.; died September 23, 1902, at Haven, Maine. One of the foremost geologists and anthropologists of the world; educated in common schools and by self instruction, a born student; married his cousin, Emma Dean, of Detroit, Mich., in 1860; they had a daughter, Mary Powell, born 1871.

At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted in the 20th Illinois volunteers, making a study of military science, civil engineering and bridge construction, and was employed on the fortification of Cape Girardeau by General Freemont. As captain of Battery F., 2nd Ill. Artillery, organized by him, he lost his right arm at Pittsburgh Landing during the battle of Shiloh. During the siege of Vicksburg labored incessantly day and night as engineer, the order to open fire at daybreak of July 4 being given to his batteries, but anticipated by the surrender. Later he became a major and chief of artillery, Dept. of the Tennessee, having declined a colonelcy of colored troops.

At the close of the war he became professor of geology at Bloomington College, Ill., from which he had previously received the degrees of A. B. and A. M. He advocated the

Page 271

principal of making studies in the field and in 1867 and 1868 he led parties of students across the great plain into Colorado on extensive explorations, ascending Pike's Peak and Mt. Lincoln. His most notable achievement was the exploration of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River. This he started May 30, 1869, with four boats manned by eleven men. The party was lost to the world until August 29. Three of the party deserted 45 miles above their destination, on account of the hardships endured. They were subsequently killed by Indians. Major Powell made a second exploration of the canyon, with government aid, in 1871-72. A monument in his honor was erected at the head of the canyon by act of Congress.

In 1879, government work of this character became a fixed policy in the creation of the Geological Survey, and in March, 1881, Major Powell was appointed its director by President Garfield. He received the degree of Ph. D. from Heidelberg, Germany, and that of LL. D. from Harvard, in 1886. For many years and until death he was director of the U. S. Bureau of Ethnology. In his later years he had a summer cottage at Haven, Maine, and many other scientists and their families soon joined him there, establishing a vacation colony. At his death he was buried in the National Cemetery at Arlington, Virginia. His principal publications were: Exploration of the Colorado River of the West and its Tributaries (1875); Report on the Geology of the Eastern Portion of the Uinta Mountains (1876); Report on the Lands of the Arid Region of the United States (1879); Introduction to the Study of Indian Languages (1880); Canyons of

the Colorado (1895); Truth and Error (1898).

Especially important was his observations on what is now termed the "Uinta type" of mountain structure; a broad, flattened anticline, from which the strata descends steeply into bordering low grounds and quickly resume their horizontality--being sometimes faulty, and affording evidence of enormous denudation.

JOSEPH POWELL

Was a Methodist clergyman and in shifting place of residence moved steadily westward. Coming from England to New York City in a sailing vessel in 1830, the little family first settled in Northern New York, thence moved to Mount Morris and Castile, N. Y., to western Ohio, to Indiana, to Illinois and later to Wisconsin. Still later they built a home at Wheaton, Ill., where the children attended the Congregational College.

Mrs. Powell's brother, Joseph Dean, had intended to come to America with the Powells, but something prevented and they failed to keep in touch with him, but 25 years later he was found in Detroit, conducting a fur business and bank. His daughter, Emma, was married to John Wesley Powell in 1860.

Leake (Hepburn) Powell. The former was born at Winchester, Virginia, August 29th, 1828, and studied for the ministry, becoming a clergyman of the Episcopal Church. He was a veteran of the Civil War, serving as a chaplain in the Confederate Army under Generals Lee and Jackson. He was the fourth child of William Alexander Powell, born July 24th, 1798, and Lucy Peachy Lee, of Winchester, Virginia. The former was a son of Leven Powell, Jr., born about 1772, and Susannah Elizabeth Orr. Leven Powell, Jr., was the third son of Colonel Leven Powell, of Middleburg, Loudon County, Virginia, who was born in 1737 and in 1763 he married Sally Harrison, daughter of Burr Harrison, of Chapawamsic. Shortly after his marriage he moved to Loudon County and purchased five hundred (500) acres of land; on a portion of this land the town of Middleburg now stands.

He was a planter and merchant but abandoned his business at the outbreak of the American Revolution and became active in all of the movements in opposition to the British Government. (NOTE THE BIOGRAPHIES OF HENRY A. POWELL, K. C. and WILLIAM DUMMER POWELL, AND YOU WILL LEARN THAT THE POWELLS WERE ON BOTH SIDES IN THE WAR OF THE REVOLUTION.) He was one of the first to take a commission in that patriotic organization known as Minute Men, and in 1775, as Major of Minute Men from Loudon County, was engaged in harassing Lord Dunmore's troops in the vicinity of Norfolk, Portsmouth and Hampton. In January, 1777, he was appointed by General George Washington, lieutenant colonel of the 16th Regiment of Virginia Continentals, which he recruited and equipped, and in the fall of that year went with his command to White Marsh Plains, near Philadelphia, Penna., where the American Army was then stationed. The severe weather at Valley Forge undermined his naturally weak constitution, resulting in a prolonged illness in camp, and he was sent home on a furlough in order that he might regain his health. In 1778 he was a member of the Virginia Convention that ratified the Federal Constitution.

Page 275

He was the founder of the Federal Party in Loudon County and in 1798 was elected to represent that district in the Federal Congress at Philadelphia. His parents were William and Eleanor (Peyton) Powell, the latter of Prince William County, Virginia. The former was the second son of William Powell, of Somerset County, Maryland, whose grandfather, Captain William Powell, sailed with John Smith from Blackwell on December 18th, 1606, and entered Chesapeake Bay, April 20th, 1607. Captain William Powell was one of the largest planters in the Colony, and he represented James City in the First House of Burgesses, which assembled at Jamestown on July 30th, 1619. The Powells of Loudon County, Virginia, are descended from the family of that name in the County of Brecknock or Brecon, South Wales.

SAMUEL STRINGHAM POWELL

(Mayor of Brooklyn, N. Y.)

Born 1815; Died February 6th, 1879. The son of Jonah and Abigail Powell. Married: Huldah A. Frazier. By this marriage there was a son, Thomas, born 1837. He moved to Brooklyn in 1838, and for many years was engaged in business as a clothier. In 1845 he was elected for a term to the Common Council, but declined re-election and held no other public office until he was elected to the Mayoralty. Mayor Powell was what would nowadays be called an Independent Democrat. He received the Mayoralty nomination in spite of the "machine" of the party, which then had its headquarters in the law offices of Lott, Murphy & Vanderbilt.

He was a religious man, but not "narrow" in his notions as was his predecessor (Mayor Hall); so he permitted the

Page 282

street cars to run on Sundays and he "winked" at Sunday store trading, so long as it was kept within bounds; he believed it was necessary to the comfort of the poor, and it met public opinion. As a result his popularity steadily increased, and he was triumphantly re-elected when his first term expired. He was called again to the Mayor's office and served a third term, and was chosen Comptroller in 1874; Park Commissioner in 1877; County Treasurer in 1878, holding the later office at the time of his death.

WILLIAM DUMMER POWELL

He was the fifth Chief Justice of Upper Canada, came of an old Welsh family, Ap Howel, which had its seat in Caer Howell in Montgomeryshire, Wales. A branch of the family emigrated to the adjoining County of Salop or Shropshire in England and was settled there as early as the seventeenth century. After this emigration to England, the name of the English branch was anglicised into its present form, Powell.

The earliest ancestor to whom reference is made in the family papers is Thomas Powell, who resided at Bank House near Shrewbury. His son John was born there about 1682--a younger son, he sought his fortune in the New World, coming out from England, as Secretary to Lieutenant-Governor William Dummer of Massachusetts.

Governor Dummer's father had been a wealthy merchant, a silversmith in London, a younger son of a good Hampshire family near Southampton. He was a Roundhead and an Independent; after the Restoration in 1660, he emigrated to Boston, Mass. He had three sons, of whom William was one; Jeremiah, the agent in London of Massachusetts, was another. Jeremiah graduated at Harvard in 1669 and then studied at the University of Utrecht; his "Defence of the New England Charters," written in England in 1728, had great vogue in its day. These two never married, and the third son, Samuel, died without issue; they had a sister Anne whom John Powell married.

His grandson, our William Dummer Powell, thus writes about the marriage: "An anecdote was handed about the town of Boston; John Powell soon after his arrival in Boston, hearing that this lady was a good match but a proud Presbyterian who had disdained many offers, laid a bet at his club, that if he could effect an introduction to the family, he would marry her. He effected his purpose by a compromise arrangement

Page 288

that all the children after the first son should be bred up in the Independent Church . . . My grandfather was an adventurer of the Cavalier Stock, a man of gayety and pleasure, and from pure gaiet‚ de coeur married my grandmother, Anne Dummer."

And he adds: "My grandmother was a little woman of very dignified presence and manner and sober conversation. She survived my grandfather whose habits were too dissipated to secure him happiness."

He died at Canso Bay in 1740, and his wife at Boston in 1763, age 77.

The eldest son of this marriage was John Powell, born at Boston, May 1716.

The first John Powell had other children, among them two sons, William and Jeremiah, the latter of whom became President of the Council at Boston; and both were of service to their nephew in after life. The arrangement as to the religion of the children was carried out. William Dummer Powell says: "This arrangement 60 years afterwards, produced the ruin of that part of the family, for in the contest with the Mother Country, my uncles Jeremiah and William Dummer sided with the Country Party, which might be called Republican, and my Father, a High Churchman and a Tory, adhered to the Monarchy and became an emigrant."

John Powell, the younger, became a merchant and for 30 years he held the contract at Boston for victualling the Royal Navy. In this, he made considerable money, most of which he invested in a mortgage upon a plantation in the West Indies.

He married Janet, the third daughter of Sweton Grant, a merchant in Rhode Island, a Baronet de jure who had declined to use his title, although after his death his successor in the title was known as Sir Alexander Grant. His mother was Temperance Tallmadge, of a good English family which emigrated to America during the Civil War of the time of Charles I.

The eldest issue of this marriage was William Dummer Powell, born at Boston, November 5th, 1755. He said: "At

Page 289

age of 16, I returned to England (where I had previously attended school at Tunbridge, Kent). When aged 17, I was summoned to attend my Father whose life was despaired of from a lingering but acute complaint in his head from rheumatic fever. I embarked for Boston in 1772."

The troublous times culminating in the Revolution had already begun; but serious warfare had not yet broken out.

Congress met in Philadelphia in 1774 and again in 1775. It rapidly became imperative for every man to take his stand as Loyalist or Continental; and young Powell showed no hesitation. He took the lead in the Declaration of Loyal Citizens against the Revolutionary Party, April 19, 1775, agreeing to support the Government with their lives.

He joined the British Garrison at Boston as a volunteer, and was during the blockade under arms for a time; but he does not seem to have taken part in actual fighting. In this year he married Anne Murray, daughter of Dr. John Murray, of Norwich, England.

POWELL: The first syllable is accented and was originally pronounced to rhyme with "cow"; the tendency recently has been to pronounce it to rhyme with "so"--precisely the same change is seen in the pronunciation of "Bowell"; another form of the same name: "Howell," however still retains the original pronunciation.

THOMAS POWELL, who resided at Bank House near Shrewsbury, England, had ten children; several sons died in infancy; William died in London; Susannah born 1686, died 1780, aged 94, and lies buried at Ludlow, Shropshire, England; John was born at Bank House, 1682 and died 1740, aged 58 or 59.

JOHN POWELL, the son of the above Thomas Powell, had three sons: John, William, Jeremiah, and two daughters, Anna who married The Rev. Dr. Pemberton of Boston, and who died, February, 1767, and susan who married Mr. Symes of Springfield; neither is known to have left issue.

WILLIAM POWELL, son of John Powell married: (1st)

Page 290

Miss Bromfield of Boston by whom he had two daughters, one of them afterwards became Mrs. Mason, and (2nd) wife was Katherine, daughter of Thomas Goldthwaite and the widow of Dr. Silverton Gardiner.

JEREMIAH POWELL, son of John Powell, married but died in 1785, without issue.

Both William and Jeremiah Powell were active on the Republican side, the former being implicated in the opposition to the imposition of taxation upon the Colonies by the Home Parliament.

The Stamp Act of 1765 was, indeed, repealed in 1766, but the "Townsend Revenue Act" of 1767, 7 Geo. III, c. 46, imposed duties upon paper, painters' colours, glass and tea. The Colonists resisted, claiming that this was unconstitutional, and an infringement of their rights as being taxation without representation; and since the legal power of the Imperial Parliament to impose the duty was unquestionable they opposed with the only weapon at their command, nonimportation. The Act was repealed as to every article except tea (threepence per pound) in 1770 by the Act, 10 Geo. III, c. 17; and the tax on tea seems to have been retained not for revenue reasons, but rather as an assertion of the right to lay such imposts.

The Colonists still resisted: 300 women of Boston, heads of families, signed an agreement not to drink tea until the duty was repealed; indigeous substitutes were found, raspberry leaves, thyme, etc., and though tea continued to arrive in Boston, there was no sale for it. The East India Company, hard hit, applied to the British Government for relief, having then some 17,000,000 pounds in their warehouses; and an Act was passed in 1773, 13 Geo. III, c 44, allowing to the company a drawback of the full amount of the English duties on exporting their tea to America, the Company to pay the threepenny duty per pound on landing the tea in America. A number of merchants in the Colonies became consignees and agents of the Company in this business, amongst them Richard Clarke and Company, Elisha Hutchinson, Benjamin

Page 291

Faneuil and Joshua Winslow of Boston. The Colonists were still more determined to prevent the importation of the tea, and a large meeting held at the State House, Boston, October 18, 1773, appointed a committee to wait on the consignees in the city and request them to resign their appointment--this committee was not very successful, and another committee of seven was appointed, of whom William Powell was one, to wait on Thomas and Elisha Hutchinson--the Hutchinsons could not be found. When it said that the other members of the committee were John Hancock, John Pitts, Samuel Adams, Samuel Abbott, Dr. Joseph Warren and Nathaniel Appleton, William Powell's politics and standing in the community become manifest--Hancock, Adams and Warren were the most prominent of the popular leaders and Warren sealed his faith with his blood at Bunker Hill, June 17, 1775.

A committee of correspondence of 21 members, including William Powell, Samuel Adams, Joseph Warren and other prominent leaders, was also appointed to correspond with similar committees at other places. At length, on the night of December 16, 1773, a number of Bostonians, some 30 or thereabouts, disguised themselves as Indians, and threw the tea on board the Company's ships into the harbor--this is the well-known "Boston Tea Party". It is not certain that William Powell took any part in this escapade. Neither G. R. T. Herves in his "Retrospect of the Boston Tea Party", New York, 1834, nor Francis S. Drake in his "Tea Leaves", Boston, 1884, states that William Powell was present--the latter, however, mentions his name as member of the committees already mentioned.

There was a Colonel, afterwards Brigadier-General, Powell who is mentioned very frequently in letters, dispatches, etc., of the Revolutionary times; he has sometimes been taken for the brother of William Dummer Powell, presumably his brother, John. This is a mistake. He was Henry Watson Powell, an Englishman, and very distantly, if at all, related to our Powells--he became a Lieutenant in the 46th Foot in 1773, Captain in the 11th, in 1756--this regiment

Page 292

became the 64th--then he served with his regiment in the West Indies in 1759, and came with it to America in 1768. In 1770, he became Major in the 38th, and the next year Lieutenant Colonel in the 53rd; in 1776 he was placed in command of the Second Brigade as Brigadier General. In 1777 he was in command of Ticonderoga after the American evacuation. When Burgoyne surrendered, he abandoned the post and went to Canada.

He became Colonel in 1779 and the next year bought an estate in the suburbs of Quebec; Major General in 1782; Lieutenant General in 1796; General in 1801. He died in England July 14th, 1814. See Lieutenant Digby's Journal, Munsell's Historical Series, Number 13, Albany 1887, at pages 196-199.
