"Major John Bowler had been magistrate at Carcoar in the late thirties and early forties. In the middle 1850s his sons Ernest and Adolphus (Dop) squatted at the Enocks/Cumbidgewa run. Shortly after occupying Cumbidgewa the brothers in partnership with their brother in law John Bligh Suttor, squatted at the adjoining Walla Walla. Following the death of his wife Frances (Fanny) in 1866, Adolphus married eighteen year old Mary Kirkpatrick of Grenfell, daughter to Thomas Kirkpatrick who with James Twaddel sank the first payable deep sinking shaft on the Lachlan Diggings, at a spot that later became the head of the Victoria Lead. It had been Twaddell and Kirkpatrick who built the low level toll bridge at the southern end of Ferry Street. When Ernest Bowler's pise homestead at Cumbidgewa collapsed and washed away during a massive flood in 1870, he moved downstream nearer Forbes and built a new homestead on a sandhill known by locals as Wandary. The run name changed to Wandary. In 1872 Ernest married William Farrand's daughter Elizabeth. The couple later moved across to Boyd."
