Admin HistoryThe brothers John Cowper Powys, Theodore Francis Powys and Llewelyn Powys were members of a family of eleven children whose parents were the Reverend C F Powys, vicar of Montacute for thirty-two years, and his wife Mary Cowper Johnson. All the children were formidable individualists, but Louis Wilkinson once wrote that when they were together they became “one huge many-headed Powys”. It was their strong sense of family and their passionate love of nature that united them; it was their sometimes anguished quests for separate identity that drew them into a remarkable variety of careers: from schoolmaster to farmer, from poet to architect.
