About George Augustus Powell

My cousin Winston mentioned that GEORGE POWELL was a very skilled with his hands. He said he used to sit and watch him make baskets. I do remember as a child he made and sold brooms

 One  statement he made to his children when they would visit him was, not to get involved with the Powell's they would  meet  in Mandeville because, they were all related .
someone who was a neighbor  of his, told me that they called him Mass George. that he used to visit them and tell duppy (Ghost )stories  to the kids lol. 

I also Heard he met my mom in the Portland Market. That he made cigars back then.. To my dad. I love you regardless.

George- Meaning farmer

of Greek  origin

also royal and German name of England : George lll

GEORGE Gender: Masculine

Usage: English, Romanian

Pronounced: JORJ (English) [key]

From the Greek name Γεωργιος (Georgios) which was derived from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning "farmer, earthworker", itself derived from the elements γη (ge) "earth" and εργον (ergon) "work". Saint George was a 3rd-century Roman soldier from Palestine who was martyred during the persecutions of emperor Diocletian. Later legends describe his defeat of a dragon, with which he was often depicted in medieval art. Initially Saint George was primarily revered by Eastern Christians, but returning crusaders brought stories of him to Western Europe and he became the patron of England, Portugal, Catalonia and Aragon. The name was rarely used in England until the German-born George I came to the British throne in the 18th century. Five subsequent British kings have borne the name.

Other famous bearers include two kings of Greece, the composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759), the first president of the United States, George Washington (1732-1797), and the Pacific explorer George Vancouver (1757-1798). This was also the pen name of authors George Eliot (1819-1880) and George Orwell (1903-1950), real names Mary Anne Evans and Eric Arthur Blair respectively.
