From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walter Rice Howell Powell (1819 - 26 June 1889) was a Welsh landowner and Liberal politician.

Powell was the son of Walter Rice Howell Powell and his wife Mary Powell. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford. On the death of his father in 1834 he inherited Maesgwynne estate of 3,468 acres in the parish of Llanboidy, Carmarthenshire, which had been owned by the Howell family.[1] For 50 years he was master of the foxhounds. He was a J.P. for Pembroke, Carmarthen and Cardiganshire and was High Sheriff of Carmarthenshire in 1849.[2] In 1867 he funded a 24 piece brass band for Llanboidy.[3]

Powell was elected Member of Parliament for Carmarthenshire in 1880 and when it was divided in 1885 became member for Carmarthenshire West, which he held until his death in 1889.[4]
