An informative and amusing transcript from a diary written in 1868 by a John Holt, describing the
village of Tittensor in Staffordshire (the inhabitants being the "wickedest people on
the face of the earth!"), wherein he writes on many aspects of the village life &
environs, including reference to a local Powner - a poacher identified as "Wasp"
An indication of the distribution of Powners in the years 1881 and 1998
A brief detail of John Wesley Woodward - a cellist on the Titanic. It has been suggested that he may
be the father of Laura Ellen Kelsall - wife of Eric Powner
Love & Age
A poem by Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) - of no particular relevance other than
perhaps to those with a family who are at, or approaching their 'later' years.
The taking of Lungtungpen
An extract from "The taking of Lungtungpen" by Rudyard Kipling - included
because George Powner served in the Indian Army, and at one point was stationed at Dagshai
in 1905. This story is one of the very few other places that I could find a reference to Dagshai.
At that time, it was an important Army barracks, and is now a highly regarded Army school
Another story by Rudyard Kipling (I'm getting quite addicted)
