Hi
Thanks for all the replies. Yes, I've seen the William Bowles in Manchester on the 1871 census. I'm not entirely sure it's my William and I'm not sure how to find out. However, the dates do seem to match.
I will check out some of the links!

Hi all.

I have a bit of a problem though. I have Lena Bowles (David's daughter & William's granddaughter) on 2 different 1891 censuses.

The first is the one you suggested with a Manchester address and the second (which I do know is correct) with a Halifax address.
She is 2 on the Manchester census and 8 on the Halifax census.

It looks increasingly as if this is not the same family!
Such a strange coincidence, especially as Lena Bowles is hardly a common name.

Dont know if there could be any connection here but if you enter the surname Bowles here there are a few baptisms for Campbell's and Bowles's up to 1898 with a godmother Mary Anne Bowles.

I've never heard of Amy before, but there may have been a lot of children born to Ann. One of her sons, David had 13 children!

My Lena is the daughter of David married to Lily Longbottom Nichol. She's baptized as Helena but her names changes along the way.

William (I think!) is David's father. She would be "a" granddaughter of William. But as I said, her age doesn't tally.

Everyone else's name and date of birth tallies.
