Hi Deb,
I am also in search of my Powles/Powless ancestors. While researching, I came across the following, at Sounds like the same people who you are in search of...

Hope this helps! Good Luck in your searching!


The following obituary was published in the Vancouver Sun newspaper (British Columbia, Canada) on 23 September 1995. Every effort was made to record this info accurately but, if you have a connection to this family, please verify the info in the original source.
Condolences are extended to the family for their loss.

POWLES -- Elizabeth, late of Surrey, passed away September 20, 1995. She was born within the sound of Bow Bells on July 23, 1895, in London, England. She will be forever remembered by her loving family: daughter Doris TOMS; son Doug POWLES; 6 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. A funeral service will be held Monday, September 25 at 3:00 p.m. in the chapel of Avalon Surrey Funeral Home, 13288 108th Ave., Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations to charity of one's choice.

This is the obituary of my maternal grandmother, Elizabeth, wife of the late William Henry Powles whom she married in London, England in 1921. They came to Canada on a holidday in late 1922 and stayed. My grandfather was the son of Henry and Sarah Powles also of London (Henry was a salesman for Brown Brothers, a tool manufacturer) who lived at Mile End on or near the Roman Road. My grandad had three sisters, Maude, Minerva and Sarah (called Cissie) and at least three brothers, George (who also emigrated to Canada), Thomas and Daniel.
