      General Note
      One story says it was this Thomas, along with brothers Robert and Johnand 26 others, who was imported to America 11/18/1663 by Capt WmMosley. Other theories place him in America much earlier, by at least1654. He may have traveled back and forth between England andAmerica.

      Capt Mosley received 1157 acres of land located on the south side ofthe Rappahanock River in Sittingbourn Parish and also a patent foranother 427.5 acres on 4/18/1670. He sold the latter parcel toRichard Poole, who the following July, through his attorney, GeorgeJones, conveyed it to Thomas Powell for 2500 lbs of tobacco.

      Residences & other events in his life:

      1665 Old Rappahannock Co, VA. "John Mills sold to Thomas, both menbeing from Rappahanncok Co, 50 acres of land beginning at the markedhickory near the mill floodgates bounding on the land of ThomasRooson, now possessed by Philip Saunders, to a creek called Tignor'sCreek, unto a small river going into said creek being part of a grandpatent to John Mills, for 400 pounds of tobacco and two cows."

      8/11/1655 Lancaster Co, VA. Francis Place conveyed a tract of landformerly in Isle of Wight County, Virginia containing 300 acrespatented by him September 7, 1654, lying

      on the North side of the "freshes" of the Rappahanncok River about tenmiles above Nazemum Town and certain cattle by deed of gift to 'Mydaughter Mary Place when she arrives at 18 years,' if she dies withoutheirs, then 'to daughter Margaret Place, my youngest daughter.'" Maryhad married Thomas Powell by 1666 when they deeded this same land toJames Coghill. (See next entry.)

      9/30/1667 Old Rappahannock Co: "Thomas Powell and Mary, his wife,sell to James Coghill for the valluable consideration of nyne barrellsof good Indian corne as also for Divers other Consideracons 300 acreson the North side of Rappahannock River patented September 7, 1654.Mary Powell, daughter to Francis Place, doth appoint her loving

      friend, Mr. Daniel Gaines her true and lawful attorney to acknowledge

      sd deed." William Wilton witnessed this power of attorney and a fewdays later bought the land from Coghill. This deed establishes themaiden name and father of Thomas Powell's wife Mary.

      1694 Essex Co, VA "Thomas and Mary Powell convey to their son,Honorias Powell, 100 acres of land beginning at an ash standing 'inthe line of Colonel Catlett (forest land)' on a branch adjoiningAbraham Stepp."

      1704 Isle of Wight Co, VA. Thomas supposedly still owned 100 acresaccording to "English Duplicates of Lost Virginia Records," eventhough he had been dead the past 3 years. A Seymon Powell owned thesame amount of land.

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------
      Marriage Note
      Court records in essex Co, 1667 & 1693, show they were already marriedand LDS records have the marriage date as 1756 but that is much tooearly considering Mary's age and birth dates of the children.

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------
      Death Note
      Thomas' will, dated 3/10/1700, proved 4/10/1701 in Essex Co, VA, sayshe is "of Sittenburn Parish and very sick and weak." He leaves landto be divided equally between his sons, Place and Thomas and his wife,her part at her death to go to son William, cattle to son, William and"these persons that hath the education of my son William till he shall

      come ot the age of 21 years." He also left bequests to daughtersFrances Powell, Elizabeth Salmon, Anne Coffee, and sons, Honours(Honorias) and Place and son-in-law-John Salmon, to be Executors.

      Abt 1703. Mary petitioned that the maintenance of her son, William,be allowed out of her husband's estate, but the court refused this asan "irregular process."

      1705 Essex Co Order Book: William Powell had died and the executorsof his father's estate unsuccessfully petitioned the court that hisestate be appraised.

      1706. John Warden as the greatest creditor, obtained administrationof the estate of William Powell.
