She born 9th June 1887 Geelong daughter of William Henry Marsh and Martha Pride (Sheckell). Jack Henry (Jock) born 1912 Geelong died 1996 in Tasmania, Australia. Colin Anderson born 23rd August, 1919 Geelong. Andrew was a foreman in West Hobart, Tasmania in 1913, Gladys died on the 23rd March, 1973 in Geelong and is buried in Eastern Cemetery, Geelong.

Hello  ;D

I need to have a think about this, as its quite exciting  ;D

But I have Margaret Byres and Andrew Bowie in my tree.

My g. grandfather was James Tait Bowie who married Barbara Hogg (my Nana  ;D)  (lived Hawick, m. 18.12.1914 )

His father was Henry Bowie who married Elizabeth Cochrane. (30.5.1879)

Henrys father was Andrew who married Margaret Byres as mentioned.

Now I have Andrew's father as Andrew Bowie (Blacksmith/ Vetrinary Surgeon) and his mother also as Helen Tait. They did not marry.

Father Andrew's Father was William Bowie, also a Blacksmith.

I havent got back any further. But you have just corroborated my research  ;D

*Off to celebrate*

Heres James Tait Bowie (If I get this right, younger brother of Andrew who emigrated?) at Selkirk Common Riding. Wife Barbara is behind him to the right. I dont have any pictures of his Parents, but I have a few more of James if you are interested.

Hi Sparkle,

thanks for your reply, what a great picture,

so far I believe the children of William Bowie, blacksmith and his wife Margaret Hogg, who were married 3rd Sept 1799,Hawick are;
son John born approx 1800 married Isabella Scott, John died around 1840. 6 known children.
son Andrew born approx 1801 died 1876, your branch.
dau Margaret born approx 1801 married William Kennedy, Margaret died at Jedburgh 1864.
son William born approx 1811married Mary Renelson,1835.
dau Euphemia born approx 1820 married Robert Murray, Euphemia died 1884.
son James born approx 1822 married Agnes Oliver,1860,James died 1870.no known children.


William Bowie,Blacksmith died in Hawick on Jan 9th 1859 age 89years, his parents were John Bowie,Blacksmith and Christina Bowie,ms Watson, informant James Bowie, son.


The OPR shows William Bowie ch 3rd May 1772,Cavers, father John Bowie,

William Bowie was buried at St Mary's Churchyard, Hawick 10th Jan 1859,
his wife Margaret Hogg buried there 19th March 1854 age 80years,

Also buried at St Mary's are William Bowie age 4years,March 1849, and Andrew Bowie age 3 years, June 1843, both sons of William Bowie, Blacksmith and Mary Renelson.

I am not connected to the Bowie family I was just doing some reseach for someone who is and got a bit carried away, any way I know 2 people who are,  Don who is from the John Bowie & Isabella Scott branch, and Elspeth who is from the Margaret Bowie & William Kennedy branch.

I have quite a bit of Census info and will send you a PM. also a list of the certificates I have,

Talk later,

Hi Amanda,

I had Margaret Hogg but cant find her parents, only have her down as being born in Sanquar, Dumfriesshire (Ironically not too far from where I went to School...) but I hadn't started to look for their other children. I also didnt have William Bowies parents nor christening.  ;D

Am just returning your pm, so long as this wee boy sat on my knee stops pressing the keys with his tractor......................
