  • Notes 
    • Possibly the daughter of Thomas Powell. Albright states that she was probably the daughter of William Powell, the brother of Thomas. Thomas Powell had a daughter Hannah, but she is reported as marrying someone else. The spelling of the name as Powle was used by previous generations in England. The surname Powell also has a Welsh origin in the "ap Howe" patronym. Jamaica Library Bedell Manuscript gives surname as Powlett. Tredwell, in a manuscript written after the publication of his articles [located in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Library], She was living as late as the Hempstead census of 1698.

      The Additions and Corrections states that her name "appears on the marriage license (NYM) as Ann Powle." Bedell of Staten Island states that in Hempstead "the only early settler by that name there, being her father, Thomas Powell. Wardwell in his correspondence to Tredwell suggests that her maiden name was probably "Poole," the daughter of William Poole of Hempstead. Tredwell, in a manuscript written after the publication of his articles [located in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Library], states [probably premised on Wardwell] that she was probably the daughter of William Poole of Hempstead.

      Carol Langdon states that Ann was the daughter of Capt. Thomas and Priscilla (Whitson) Powell. Captian Thomas was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Parsons) Powell. Capt. Thomas married Priscilla before Aug 1641 in New Haven, New Haven County, CT. Thomas, the father of Capt. Thomas was born in Mildenhall, Suffolk, England on 25 Mar 1584. He was the son of Barnable and Agnes (Webbe) Powell

      Peters, Powells of the Hudson Valley sources and notes: 1) identified as Anne Powell or Poole; 2) Papers of Harold Smith, NY State Library, Albany, Daniel married Anne Powell 22 Nov 1679 at the homestead at Green Ridge.

      Alicia A. and George H. Peters (comp.), Powells of the Hudson Valley, "Introduction": "The roots of the Powell family tree extend into the legendary history of Wales as far back as the 5th century, but the name Powell only first appears as Ap Howell (son of Howell) at a much later date. Apparently by 1600 several loosely related Powell family groups had spread throughout Wales and Western England, and each contributed to the rising tide of emigration to America. Powells were frequent and early settlers of Barbados, Georgia, Virginia, New Jersey, New York and New England, but maintained little or no contact with each other.

      "One such independent colonist was Thomas Powell who came to Long Island, NY as a 12-year old boy in 1653. His ancestry is vague since in his lifetime he never had any contact with Welsh ancestors or other Powells in America. He became a Quaker early in his life and his descendants largely continued his faith. It was only in the mid-19th century, as Quakerism waned, that many Powells discarded Quaker beliefs.

      "Thomas Powell prospered, had fourteen children, each of whom was prolific, so the Powell family grew rapidly. Powells moved progressively into Westchester and Dutchess Counties, thence up the Hudson River Valley and west along the Mohawk River, Erie Canal and into the Far West as new lands opened for settlement. One of these migrants was the great grandson of Thomas Powell, Edward Powell, born on Long Island, grew up in Westchester County, married in Dutchess County, moved to Greene County, and died in Albany County. A son of his, Foster Powell, 1781-1862, built a home and grist mill on Potick Creek near Grapeville, NY, and is buried near his old house. It was his gravestone, discovered by the compilers of these records in 1960, that led to our 24 years of research of the Powell family.

      "By reason of its [the research] magnitude and complexity, the scope of our research was limited essentially to New York's Hudson River Valley and its tributaries. Long Island Powell records have already been well researched by Mary Powell Bunker and Charles Powell; and , therefore, are not included except as they might refer to Powells who migrated into the Hudson River Valley. Likewise, Powells of New York City, Canada, northern New York State, or New England are not included, or only incidental to the Hudson Valley research."
