Powers Genealogy & History

Powers is an English surname with English and French origins. As a French surname, it is locational, from the Old French Pohier, denoting a resident of Pois, a village in Picardy; the place was so called because of its well-stocked rivers, as the Old French word for fish is pois. Second, it comes somewhat more confusingly from the Middle English and Old French povre/poure, meaning poor, used for people who didn't have any money, or those who were reluctant to spend it. Powers family history enters the books with Drogo Poher, enrolled in the Ancient Charters of Gloucestershire in 1127. Powers genealogy boasts several well-known people, like Cold War pilot Gary Powers, Olymic volleyball medalist Patrick Powers, and science fiction author Tim Powers.
