Welcome to the Powney Name Study



This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. Powney, Pountney, Poney, Powntney, Pawntney, Pultney, Pulteney. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

  • I do sometimes wonder about a connection to the similar name...Pultney and Pulteney, purely because of the similarity to some spellings found during research...namely Poultney. Wealth is enough of an excuse to close ranks and refuse to name family members so as not to share the wealth.
  • The Pulteney family can be found in Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Lancashire. Warwickshire being in close proximitry to Staffordshire. Referenced in Collin's Peerage of England.


'So far, I have tracked my own tree from Queensland, Australia to Staffordshire, c1800 and there mine has so far stopped.
