not sure if it will help but there is a book, pdf free ebook, that you can get from gengophers.com (genealogy gophers) that is written by an edgar powell, , 'The pedigree of the family of powell'

it has a lot of james from england and wales in it, but a lot of good powell history and references.  (i love that website)

"England and Wales Census, 1851," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGLY-WQY : 24 July 2016), Lucy Powell in household of James Powell, Burslem, Staffordshire, England; citing Burslem, Staffordshire, England, p. 30, from "1851 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast(http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives of the UK, Kew, Surrey.

 

This might help.  It looks like she has an older sister who would be on the 1841 census.

This 1851 Census, lists James Powell's age as 51, and born in in St. Mary, Salop. A birth year around 1800.

This I believe to be Lucretia's father; James Powell, born 6 May 1801 and christened 14 June 1801, St. Mary, Shrewsbury, Shropshire the son of Thomas Powell & Lucretia. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N53S-KXZ
