Obituary

By the death of Mr. Charles Bendin Powell, which occurred at Upper Walkerville on Tuesday, South Australia has been deprived of another of the earliest settlers of the province. Mr. Powell, who was in his 88th year, arrived at Kangaroo Island on July 27, 1836, in the Duke of York, which was the first vessel belonging to the South Australian Company's fleet to enter St. Vincent's Gulf. He was a native of Hackney Wick, having been born there on March 1, 1810. On May 14, 1838, he was married at Trinity Church to the late Mrs. Powell, the officiating minister being the Rev. C. B. Howard.

Powell went to work as a gardener on the island when he arrived there, having been engaged in that capacity by the South Australian Company. After two years of work, however, the company abandoned work on the island, and Mr. Powell severed his connection with the institution. Subsequently for a short time he engaged in business in Adelaide, after which he removed to Walkerville. A number of years were devoted to dairying, but for many years before his death he had lived in retirement. Up to the last he retained full possession of his faculties, with the exception that he was somewhat hard of hearing. Sixty years ago the advent of a ship into South Australian waters was quite an episode, and Mr. Powell could give interesting accounts of the arrival of all the earlier vessels which came to our shores. The first of these were the barque Duke of York, which left England on April 5, 1836, and arrival at St. Vincent's Gulf on July 27. Then came Lady Mary Pelham, which left England April 7, 1830, and reached its destination on July 30. These were followed by the John Pirie, the Rapid, and the Cygnet.

Mental health

"Police Court, Adelaide. Thursday, 29th April. Before H. R. Wigley. Esq. Charles Powell, was charged with being a dangerous lunatic; Jane Powell stated that she lived at Walkerville; she was sorry to say the prisoner was her husband. He had been in the Lunatic Asylum about five or six years ago, but had since conducted himself tolerably well, until within the last few weeks. On Monday night last he threatened to take her life; and she was in constant fear that he would do so. He had formerly attempted to cut his throat.

Prisoner— At whose instigation was it that I was put into the Asylum? Witness— Not mine, but Dr. Woodforde's. Prisoner — Can a man be a lunatic who has a remembrance of events which happened when he was but four or five years of age? I have never threatened, to take her life. Can she prove that I am her husband? Sarah Sanders, wife of Henry Sanders, deposed that she lived next door to the prisoner's at Walkerville. About nine weeks ago, he threatened to dash his wife's brains put with a long broom. On Monday night last he threatened to murder her, and said that afterwards he should be at rest. The prisoner again denied that he had ever threatened to take the life of his wife. Remanded.

(SA Register 30/4/1852)

"Police Court. 30th April. Charles Powell was brought up on remand, charged as a dangerous lunatic. Dr. Woodforde stated that he had known the prisoner for years. He did not think his mind was in a fit state to allow him to be at large. He considered him to be a decidedly dangerous lunatic. Committed for one week on the opinion of the Colonial Surgeon.

(SA Register 1/5/1852, p3)

Henry Arthur Powell

Mayor of Adelaide.

'Powell - Henry Arthur (M.B. Ch.B. {Adelaide}) Health Officer to the Kadina Town Corporation, Henry Street, Kadina, was born in the town where he now resides in 1868. He is the eldest son of Mr Charles Bendin Powell of Coromandel Valley, also a native of the State, whose father came to South Australia by the ship 'Duke of York', which arrived at Kangaroo Island in July 1836. The latter gentleman was under engagement as gardener to the South Australian Company and planted the first fruit trees in the State. Doctor Powell's father has been connected with the pastoral industry and was for thirty years identified with 'Wilpena Station' near Hawker. He now lives in retirement at Coromandel Valley. The gentleman under review received his scholastic education at the Glenelg Grammar School and afterwards pursued his medical studies at the Adelaide University, taking his diploma in 1891. After spending a year in the Adelaide Hospital and two years in the Childrens Hospital at North Adelaide, Dr. Powell practised for some twelve months at Angaston and in 1896 came to Kadina, where he has been actively engaged in his profession ever since. He interests himself in the public and social functions and organizations of the town and district and served four years in the Kadina Town Council, being elected to the Mayoral Chair, which he filled for two years. In 1897 he married Kate Frances, daughter of Mr. Sydney Smith, of Yalumba, Angaston. (Cyclopaedia of SA, 1909)
