About the Project

The Bowes Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the SRNM name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Bowes name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Bowes), by time period (18th Century Bowes), or by topic (Bowes DNA, Bowes Occupations, Bowes Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Thank you for replying and letting me know. I am new to WikiTree and trying as I have hit a dead end on the Bowes line on Ancestry. I would appreciate it if you would add me to the Bowes group.

Hi - my name is Neil Davies, son of Elizabeth Davies (Bowes). I am interested in learning more about the Bowes family. All of my mother's family that i knew were born and lived in northern England. My mother's close family was from Bolton, Lancashire England. I am trying to find out more about my mother's side of the family. I remember her telling me she thought they were an offspring of the Bowes-Lyon family......but I have not been able to trace that or any connection farther than great grandparents. I would love to collaborate with anyone that has a similar interest of that shares common ancestry.
