Note: The above mentioned Rev'd. Richard Mills graduated from Trinity College in Dublin in 1750  He was the Minister at St. Mary's Carlow from April 1754 to November 1757. Later he was the rector of Annaclone, co. Down from 1776 to 1804.  This may be a line to follow up to find the marriage of my direct ancestor, John Bowles, to an Ann Mills in 1799 as I cannot find any other trace of her locally.  Several Bowles families also appear at Newry, co. Down in about 1819 near where Rev'd. Richard Mills held land.  In 1829, John Bowles of Drumjavlin and Richard Mills Jr. of Clare both held land in co. Down under the same landlord, the Earl of Moira.  This could be a coincidence or a connection between the Carlow Bowles and the co. Down Bowles through the Mills family.
