Following on from William Powell (the father) being recorded as being a Gamekeeper and residence at those occasions being in "Knockall" and "Whippington's Brook", both either side of the village of Staunton, Gloucestershire Archives have a couple of Records which i believe refer to your William Powell. (Reason being is that the areas mentioned in the archives are very, very close to Staunton and the years work as well)
Finding References for both are O/SO/12 (Part )

The first reads " Deputation to William Powell to act as gamekeeper for Staunton by the Right Honble. William Huskinsson Wm Dacres Adams and Henry Hawkins Esqrs. Commrs. of His Majesty's Wood Forests and Land Revenues, Lord of the Manor, made 7 June 1820, registered at Quarter Sessions 14 July 1820."

The Second Reads "Deputation made to William Powell to act as gamekeeper for to preserve Game over the Hundred and Manor of St. Briavells and the Manor of Newland by Wllm Fitzhardinge Berkeley claiming as of right to be Earl of Berkeley, Lord of the Manor, made 1 January 1821, registered at Quarter Sessions 5 January 1821".

Doesn't help with taking your family back in time but does provide some detail of at least almost a decade of his life. There is quite a lot of information on the web dealing with the Manors and the Earl of Berkeley.

Hope you find it interesting.
