Re: Powleslands in East Portlemouth
I just learned of my Powlesland connection today. My great-great grandfather, John Pengilly (or Pengelly or even Pengelley, if you like--my ancestors weren't big on spelling)married Ann Powlesland. So far, all I have to go on is that they had a son, Thomas on 6 February 1839 in Stempford Courtney, Devon. I have sent for John Pengilly's marriage certificate but I'll have to wait to see if it's the right one.
