Click >here< for an Archived version of a deceased WebSite, giving the story of "Essays and Reviews" (1860), the work for which the Rev. Prof. was most famous (or notorious, depending on your point of view).
The Reverend Professor Baden Powell and his first wife, Eliza Rivaz, dau of Vincent Francis Rivaz of Hackney, were married 17 July 1821 in St John's, Hackney; 14 years later she died childless on 13 March 1836 and was buried at St Peter's in the East, Oxford.
Baden and his second wife, Charlotte Pope, dau of William Pope of Hillindene, Middx, were married 27 Sep 1837 in Speldhurst. Kent, but 7 years later she died 14 Oct 1844 and was buried at Speldhursthe; they had four children, who kept their POWELL surname.
Baden's third wife, Henrietta Grace nee Smyth was the daughter of Admiral William Henry Smyth. She produced ten more children for Baden.
Curiously, of those fourteen POWELL children of the Rev. Prof. Baden - eleven of them sons - there are only two POWELL branches still existing today, and the continuation of each is dependent on just one son in each.
