Information about Bildeston has been taken
and condensed from various sources.
page presentation (c) Jill Walker
The Bildeston registers show that Powling
families have lived in the parish at least
since 1556 when the registers began. The family
could well have been there for far longer than
that date shows. Unfortunately we cannot
connect our family up to the other Powlings in
this parish - the link is missing - but there
is quite a strong likelihood that there is a
connection.
