I am after any information about my gggrandfather, Walter Frederick David Taylor Powell who was born 1831 in Clarefield Oxfordshire, and my ggggrandfather, Walter Posthumous Powell whose occupation was clergyman possibly in Clarefield Oxfordshire. Any information about them or advice on where to find it would be great.

Walter Taylor David Powell, (I have not heard of the 'Frederick') my great grandfather came to Australia in 1852 for the gold rush. (His father was definitely, Walter Posthumous Powell) He returned to England but came back to Australia in 1854. After a rather eventful life, he died in Brisbane, Queensland on 23 December 1906. I have a fairly extensive history of his life here in Queensland if you are interested. I am interested in finding out more about his siblings, so if you have any information I'd be grateful.

Kind regards
Lionel Powell

Hi
my name is Henry Powell and live in West Sussex, your gggrandfather had 5 brothers and sisters , Walter went to Australia, the only other brother to have male children was James Howel Bevan Powell (born in India 28 Sep 1846)who died in 1929 in Monmouthshire. He had a son named Cecil Arthur Powell whom in turn had a son named Henry James Cecil Powell who then had me in 1947. I have two daughters aged 21 and 23.
If you need it I have the history covering Walter Posthumous Powell (He was the Archdeacon of Madras in Indiaborn 1807 dies july 1853. His fathers family and grandparents are all buried in the chuch at Llangatock Vibon Avel near Monmouth and we have a verified family tree going back to Maenarch, Prince of Brecknock at the time of the invasion of Britain by the normans .I have a large painted portait of Walter Posthumous passed down from my grandfather.
please let me know what information you would like

Hi Lionel
my name is Henry Cecil Stephen Powell and are the ggson of James Howell Bevan Powell who was your grandfather Walters brother. Water Posthumous Powell was the Archdeacon of Madras in India and had 6 children , Walter went to Australia,George,David and Matilda had no children,Evan had a daughter and James Howell Bevan had 3 children, my gradad Cecil Arthur, Walter who died aged 2 and Mary Perla who also had a daughter. My grandad had 1 son Henry James Cecil who then had me in 1947. I have two daughters aged 21 and 23.
I have the verified family tree dating back to Norman times 1066 when your ancestor was Maenarch Prince of Brecknock. I also have a painted portait of Walter Posthumous .
Most of the family are buried in a crypt in the church at Llangattock-Vibon-Avel in Monmouthshire. The family is completly traced back till it became split by your grandfather going to Australia. We are the only Welsh side left but you are all direct descendants in an unbroken male line for over 900 years from Maenarch, Prince of Brecknock and Lord of Brecon.
if you wish any information please contact me on hcspowell@aol.com
It is greatr to find that we still have relatives.
regards
Henry Cecil Stephen Powell
