13th February 1818,   Marriages
August 27, 1818 at Podicherry, by the Rev. J.G. Holzbury,
C.G.R. Ellis Esq., Judge of Zillah of Canara, to
Myra ann Kinchant daughter of the late
Richard Kinchant Esq., formerly Commecial Ressisdent and collector of Cuddalore.

Castles and old Mansions of Shropeshire,
PARK HALL, a fine specimen of a timber house was built by Robert Howell (otherwise Robert Powell,) in the reign of Queen Mary, between the years 1553 and 1558. It was inhabited by members of the same family, till it ended in an heiress, who sold it to Francis Charlton, of Ludford, a branch of the Charlton's of Apley, and by his will it passed to his second son Job, on whos death without issue, the estate was inherited by his sister, who married for her third husband John Charlton Kinchant, whose descendant is its present owner. It is a specimen of a style which prevailed when the necessity had ceased for making houses capable of defence, and when the newly acquired power of admitting any amount of light and air into apartments was adopted to such an unreasonable extent, as to make nearly the whole fronts of houses to consist of mullioned windows. --------------------- OSWESTRY shr Park Hall Powell - Charlton - Kinchant 1600+ Built by Thomas Powell. Passed to Sir Francis Charlton 1717. P. Reid, Guide to Country Houses, II, 1980. S. Leighton, Shropshire Houses, 1901, 25.
Shropeshire houses published 1901
IN 1563, Henry Fitzalan, Earl of Arundel, sold to Thomas Powell, of Whittington, the land on which the present house was shortly afterwards built. His grandson or great grandson was Sheriff in 1647, and adhered to the Parliament in the Civil Wars. The next in succession was the Rev. Dr. Powell, described as "Esquire," who was Rector of Whittington, Canon and Chancellor of St. Asaph, Rector of Hodnett, Archdeacon of Salop, and King's Chaplain.
His son Thomas, Mayor of Oswestry, 1690, Recorder 1698, Sheriff 17 17, sold Park in the latter year to Sir Francis Charlton, Bart., of Ludford. Sir Francis was the eldest son of Sir Job Charlton, Speaker in 1673 ; he was M.P. for Ludlow in 1678, Sheriff in 1699, and dying in 1729, was succeeded at Park by his eldest son by his second marriage, Job, who died without issue in 1761, when the estate vested in his sister Emma, who married for her third husband, John Kinchant.
The father of Kinchant was of French Huguenot descent, and was killed at Fontenoy in 1745. John Charlton Kinchant was Sheriff in 1775, and died in 1832. His nephew and heir was killed at Waterloo, and the estate subsequently passed to a cousin, Richard Henry Kinchant, Sheriff 1846, after whose death it was sold, about 1870, to the present owner, Mrs. Wynne Corrie, by the mortgagees.

The "Black and White" facade is artistically designed. A small domestic chapel occupies one wing ; a long low hall fills the centre, in which is an oak table of a single plank, 4 ft. X2i ft. Quaint Latin mottoes, after the sentimental form of Tudor decoration, are engraved above the doors. Such as
" Quod tibi fieri non vis Alteri non feceris."

" Murus aheneus Sana conscientia."

There is a handsome oak staircase, a panelled gallery, and some plaster work of seventeenth and eighteenth centuries on the ceiling of the drawing room. There was formerly here a gatehouse, mentioned by Evelyn in his '* Forest Trees," as an example of a beam of extraordinary size, which supported the upper storey, and upon which was carved the following verses :

" En ego, que firmis steteram radicibus olim

Silvarum dominus fertilitate mea, Idlibus heu crebris cecidi pulcherrima quercus,

Incumbo saxis pondere pressa domus Sexaginta pedes fuerant in stipite nostro

Excepta coma, que speciosa fuit. Non facics Formosa potest produccrc vitam, Non genus egrcgium cum fcra fata vocant : Quarc nc rebus nimium tu fide secundis Felix quiquis agis : tempore cunfta ruunt."

A raised terrace formerly ran at right angles to the side of the house, and on it was a sundial, with the following verses :

" Practerlt stas Ncc remorantc Lapsa rccedunt Sascula cursu

Ut fugit astas Utquc citatus Turbinis instar Volvitur annus

Sic quoque nostra Precipitanter Vita reccdit Ocyor undis."

Great additions have been made of late to the garden side of the house, but the entrance front has not been altered.
