Edward Bowles of Toronto's Family Tree


 
Edward and Susan Bowles emigrated from England to Canada in 1882 with their son Richard and his family and settled in Toronto.  Their son William joined them in 1884, son Edward followed with his wife Hannah and 7 children in 1887 and also settled in Toronto where another child was born in 1888 and son Thomas and wife Fanny were probably the last members of the family to arrive in 1890.
