Welcome to the New Website!

I’ll be converting the current Bowes One-Name Study website to this one hosted by the Guild of One-Name Studies. The Guild will host this website with all its material indefinitely. Also, by providing a ‘blog’ function, the new website offers everyone a way to subscribe to see new content, whether or not they are on Facebook.

This conversion will take some time. I’ll edit and update many of the pages at the old site as I transfer them, and I’ll post update notices here as they’re transferred. I may change the template and layout occasionally while I make sure the site supports the various kinds of material I plan to include.

I’ll also recycle some old material from the Facebook timeline on this blog, since many new followers there, and those not on Facebook, may never have seen the older material. I look forward to having a more permanent, searchable record that’s accessible to everyone. (Sorry I’m not too good with catchy designs and layouts!)

Be sure to sign up for updates if you want to follow this page, but I’ll post updates to the Facebook feed too! Thanks for your patience while the website is slowly transferred here!

  1. Thank you for leaving a comment June. This is interesting. So far I haven’t come across any Bowes who can trace their line with certainty back to this George Bowes. With your permission I’ll share your information above by email with a contact I have who specializes in this line. I’m not sure if he can help, but he’s my go-to researcher for this family. It’s also quite possible that your line is one of many Bowes families that probably acquired their surname independent of George Bowes’ line.

    If you’re on Facebook I can add you to a group of other English Bowes researchers. You can friend me at the link on my About > Contact page.


  2. My Mother was Edith Bowes I have managed to go back a long way from the original George Bowes who was at Barnard Castle along with his daughter Mary Eleanor who married The Earl of Strathmore but I have stalled with a certain Ann Bowes borne 1776 in Cumberland giving birth to a son John Bowes but showing no father Do you go this far back?
