With out the welsh the english would have crumbled a long time ago. Oh and Captain Morgan was a Powell and we were the last known holders of the Holy Grail. So either we had the chalice or we are the bloodline.
This was very insightful! I am from the last known Powells in our line. Several disappeared years back,and then my great grandfather Joseph went missing. Thank you

Hello This is very interesting and I trying very hard to find out where my name originate from.I was born and raised in Baltimore,MD and now live in Atlanta,GA.Does the name Powell come from royalty in England.
Look up the Powells and Ap Howells from Wales.
My last name is Powell. I would love to know the ancestral heritage of my name, last name. However, I am African American and no idea if the being welsh has anything to do with slaves working on plantations that were given these last names. So I don't think so, that being welsh applies to anything for me. Newssflassh everybody. There's a CRAP TON of Powell's in Minnesota. and they're ALL BLACK.

The Powells in Bermuda are a mix of Carib Indian and Welch Powell thanks to pirates of the Caribbean like John Powell. My grandpa was named Howard Powell he was also a farmer and a seafaring man. There is a lot of Powell history in Bermuda. The Powells have been not only part of the beginning of Bermuda history, but world history.

My great-grandmother on my father's paternal line came through Ellis Island in 1888-1889. She was from the Carpathian mountain region between Slovakia and Ukraine and didn't speak English. Her maiden name was listed as Powell. I'm guessing it was anglisized from Pavel by an immigration agent...how often did that happen to immigrants?
