Travelling People / Bowen/Jones m.04/05/1746 Stottesdon
« on: Saturday 03 May 08 00:09 BST (UK)  »
According to DNA, I have the Romany gene from central asia, through my maternal line, which I can trace back to Eleanor Jones married 04 May 1746 Stottesdon to Francis Bowen.

OK, I'm a gorjer (spelling?), but not trying to prove anything at this stage, so I don't want to upset you true Romany's by claiming to be of gypsy descent, however, if I could prove it I would be extremely happy.

My direct maternal line reads (all Shropshire), from my grandmother:

Annie Louisa Scriven, b 1873 Alveley
Ann Bennett, b . abt 1851 Alveley
Sarah Broom(e), b  1826 Alveley
Jane Blakeway, 1792 Hopton Wafers
Jane Bowen b 1757 Stottesdon, bap Farlow Chapel
Eleanor Jones who married 04 May 1746 Stottesdon, Shropshire to Francis Bowen.

I really want/need to track Eleanor's mother, as this is another link in the gene female tree.

Any ideas gratefully received, from one who is vertically challenged & of olive (well I think so!) skin. As an outsider, maybe I have misconceptions!
