1758-1891: Powell family deeds and legal documents collection



A very large collection of indentures, deeds, bank books, legal documents and letters contained in a metal deed box relating to solicitor John La Touche Powell and his wife. The documents chart the interesting life of Powell, a Dublin solicitor, who found himself in dangerous legal difficulties in the late 1830s due to his extravagant lifestyle. He left Ireland for North Wales where he died in 1841, leaving his wife behind in Dublin in poverty.
