Biography

The German family was a persecuted Protestant family who migrated to England in 1762.

Palatine Land Plats South Carolina.
Plat of Bauer's land.

They emigrated in 1764 and settled in South Carolina. Adam Bauer was granted 300 acres of land. Taken from a copy of his land grant "...do give and grant unto John Adam Bauer, his heirs and assuages, a plantation or tract of land containing: three hundred acres situated in Londonborough township bounded to the North part on land laid out to Balker Merk and part on vacant land, to the East part of land laid out to Christian Zang and part laid out to Abraham Frick, to the south and west on vacant land." In return for his land grant, dated 19 April 1765, Adam was required to three pounds stirling, or four shillings proclamation money for every hundred acres. This money was due on each 25th day of March for ten years.

Adam, his sons Charles and Philip, joined the British Army in Augusta during the American Revolution, serving in Captain Maxwell's Company.

In September 1782, when the British were forced to evacuate Charlestown, Adam moved his family to Nova Scotia. They wintered that year in Halifax with several other Loyalist families, and in July 1783 arrived in Port Roseway, and at Shelbourne, Nova Scotia, May 17, 1783 where the Loyalist Monument now stands.

Adam submitted two claims to the Commission in London because, "he forgot to mention his eye in the first one."He figured he ought to get a little something extra for that. Adam was recompensed and apparently invested his money wisely. John O. Bower of Shelbourne, a retired oil company executive and one time member of Canada's Parliament gave this information. "My great-great-grandfather Adam (Bauer) Bower came to Shelbourne with the second fleet of 1783".

The son Charles had his family and slaves with him. One daughter and husband known as Mr. and Mrs. John Dorris.There were others in the family.

It was here that over time, the German spelling Bauer, became changed to the English spelling, Bower.
