George Bowles' Family Tree
See also The George Bowles of Peel county Family History and Some Notable Members of This Family
I want to express my appreciation to several descendants of George Bowles' who have helped me with my account of their family's history and family tree, most notably Charles Bowles (email: charlesgbowles at gmail dot  com) and Dave Rutherford (email: ahmose50 at gmail dot com).
Note: Considering the excellent and ongoing work which Dave Rutherford has done to document this line on Wikitree, in order to eliminate the duplication of our efforts, effective June 17, 2020 this page will no longer be updated.  All of the information and images on this page have been made available to Dave to be included on the Bowles of Peel county Wikitree.
George Bowles b. ~ 1765 Tipperary, Ireland
m. Barbara Young (Jung?) (b. ~ 1776 Ireland; parents probably were John and Elizabeth Young of Bawnlea) ~ 1795 Tipperary, Ireland (possibly at the Methodist chapel in Bawnlea)
(lived in Bawnlea, co. Tipperary; he and his wife followed their son Charles to Canada in 1830 along with daughter Rose and son David; R.P. Bowles in his Bowles of Tipperary, written around 1950, states that George and Barbara Bowles married "somewhere about one hundred and fifty years ago, in Tipperary, Ireland, and not far from the village of Kilkenny" and also that Charles and Anne lived in Kilkenny before they left for Canada in 1827; R.P.B. must have confused the name Kilkenny for Bawnlea) (note: Bawnlea is in county Tipperary but very near the border with county Kilkenny; his 'village of Kilkenny' must have been a reference to Bawnlea as Kilkenny could refer to both a large county and the principle city of that county but not a village and there is ample evidence for the family living at Bawnlea prior to 1827)
