Clerk living and working in East London. Nothing definite is known about the origins of this Henry Powell. He is described variously as Commercial, Newspaper Agents and Mercantile Clerk in Censuses and certificates. Family folklore, based on comments by Emma Breach Powell (1880-1972), has it that the Powells came originally from Wales. For further research, there is an enigmatic note in one of Gail Henderson's (1947-1967) notebooks to "look at Powell family vault at Highgate Parish Church [London]".
