The Powell Pedigree

The earliest established ancestor is William POWLE (1460?-1512?). 

A "narative" pedigree showing his descendants down to 1926 is unfortunately too long to fit on this page, but the Introduction can be found >here<, and the full pedigree >here<

There are two different aspects to a Pedigeree - one is the descent from the earliest known ancestor, i.e. all known descendents.  The other is the reverse - all known ancestors of a specific current or recent person.

All the (currently) known ancestors of the Rev. Professor Baden Powell are shown >here<-

The earliest (currently) known male ancestor of THIS family of POWELLs is 

William POWLE,
Born 1460?, Died 1512? at age 52;
Plaintiff in a fine for 76 acres & a house in Mildenhall 1498 Subseneschal to the Cellarer of Bury Abbey and
Acting Seneschal of Mildenhall Manor 1501
A Justice for Gaol Delivery, Bury, 1511

We do not (yet) know who his wife was, but they had at least one child - more may yet be discovered [Note the number 1 in the left margin shows he is the first child - the wide gap leaves room for more generations, see other entries below]:-
