William Bowles of Carlow's Family Tree

Back to William Bowles of Carlow

William Bowles b. ~ 1800
note: there is an entry in the St Mary's Carlow register for the baptism of a James Bowels on July 16, 1831 the son of a William Bowels and Elizabeth Smith of Castle Hill, Grague, Carlow.  That wasn't actually a William Bowles, it was a clerical error in the register for the baptism of a James Bower son of William Bower and Elizabeth Smith  At that time the people didn't sign their names in the register themselves, a clerk would record the names and mistakes were not infrequent. 
m. Anne Byrne ~ 1836 (they were likely common-law as their children's baptismal entries in the parish register are marked 'bastard' or 'spurious')
(records show William lived on Dublin Road around 1835 until at least 1863)
1.  Anne Bowles bp. July 8, 1837 Carlow
(the family is listed in the church register as living at Barnard's Lane which crosses the Dublin Road by William's Lot 80; Anne's baptism states 'Bastard' so William and Anne were not married at that point, possibly because they were of different religions)
