Hi Sharon I can't really help you with your query but I believe my ancestors' surname was Pownall & that they were of German origin & possibly embarked from Hamburg & arrived in North Queensland approx 1876 after which the name may have been changed to Powell. If I have any luck finding out I will keep you posted.
