Back to The Bowles of Deal Family Tree

We also have to place these into the Bowles of Deal family tree:

In Deal

One early reference which doesn't seem to help:
Avis (?) Bowle bur. May 28, 1593 St Leonards Deal
Does anyone have a better idea what that given name could be?
The Bowles are closely associated with Deal but they first settled in Ringwould in the 1500's and then a branch settled in Walmer.  Valentine Bowles of Ringwould settled in Deal in about 1659 but the first of the family to settle in Deal was this Thomas:
Thomas Boule m. Judith Cook Oct. 1631 St Leonards Deal
1.  Elizabeth Bowle bur. Jan. 29, 1631/32 St Leonards Deal
2.  John Boule bp. Jan. 20, 1632/33 and bur. Jan. 24, 1632/33 St Leonards Deal
3.  Elizabeth Boule bp. Dec. 22, 1633 St Leonards Deal
4.  Thomas Bowle bur. Feb. 6, 1635/36 St Leonards Deal
5.  Thomas Boule bp. Feb. 24, 1636/37 and bur. April 21, 1637 both St Leonards Deal
6.  William Bowle bp. Feb. 9, 1639/40 St Leonards Deal
7.  Sarah Bowle bp. Mar. 30, 1645 St Leonards Deal
8.  John Bowle bp. July 8, 1649 St Leonards Deal
9.  Mary Bowle b. ? bur. Oct. 16, 1665 St Leonards Deal
Thomas Bowle d. ?
Judith Bowle, widow bur. Dec. 11, 1663 St Leonards Deal
This William would be in the same generation as the above Thomas:
William Boule m. Margaret
1.  Hanna Bowle bp. Jan. 7, 1637/38 St Leonards Deal
Margaret wife of Will. Boule bur. Oct. 29, 1646 St Leonards Deal
William Boule bur. Dec. 1, 1646 St Leonards Deal
These would be a second generation in Deal:
Thomas Bowlls m. Anne Bowlls May 21, 1666 St Leonards Deal
1.  William Bowlls bp. Apr. 14, 1666 bur. June 5, 1667 both St Leonards Deal
2.  Aaron Bowlls bp. Oct. 11, 1668 St Leonards Deal
3.  Amy Bowlls bp. June 12, 1670 St Leonards Deal
4.  Moses Bowles bp. Dec. 31, 1671 St Leonards Deal
m. Jane
4.1  Thomas Bowles bp. Nov. 29, 1696 St Leonards Deal
5.  Henry Bowlls bp. Aug. 18, 1673 St Leonards Deal
(a mariner of Deal)
Henry d. 1691 at sea (Will dated Nov. 26, 1689; proven July 20, 1691)
6.  Sampson Bowlls bp. Aug. 22, 1675 and bur. Oct. 11, 1683 both St Leonards Deal
7.  Charles Bowlls bp. Dec. 30, 1677 St Leonards Deal
8.  William Bowlls bur. June 11, 1683 St Leonards Deal
Thomas living in 1691
Anne Bowles wife of Thomas Bowles bur. Aug. 28, 1695 St Leonards Deal
Note: the unusual given name Sampson appears in this baptismal record from 1675 although his death was also recorded 8 years later. The surviving parish records for this region are not comprehensive.  The name must have appeared again in the family shortly after that as another Sampson Bowles, Sailor of Deal married a Phebe Mason on Jan. 19, 1701/02 in St Leonards Deal and they baptized a son Sampson Bowles on Nov. 1, 1702 also in St Leonards Deal and a second son, Aaron, shortly after.  This may indicate a relationship between the Bowles and the Samson family of Kent.  Perhaps going back to the 1500's with Agnes Bowle m. Nicolas Somsonn Feb. 16, 1562/63 Saltwood, Saints Peter and Paul.
Sampson Bowles, Sailor of Deal m. Phebe Mason Jan. 19, 1701/02 St Leonards Deal
1.  Sampson Bowles bp. Nov. 1, 1702 St Leonards Deal
2.  Aaron Bowles bp. Dec. 27, 1704 St Leonards Deal

In Ringwould and Walmer

Meanwhile back in Ringwould and Walmer the Bowles lines continued:
Note that the the Bowles of Ringwould were recorded in the Ringwould register as Bowle or Bowles from 1575 to 1622, from 1625 to 1687 as Bold, Bolde or Bolds except as Bowles once in 1683 (in an entry which is in a very different script) before returning to Bowles from 1686 until modern times.  Nevertheless they are all clearly the same family.
