I have looked through the 1841 census for Colne, found a few houses under Law House, and a couple of pages before that is this family, so there were Bowkers in the area in 1841, perhaps a brother that you can link:

1841 Castle, Colne, Lancs
BOWKER
Edward 45  Weaver   Y
Hannah 40                 No
Mary 14                      Y
Thomas 11                 Y

Hope this helps,
Barbara  :)

Hi Barbara

I've found Law House on the Ordnance Survey site which seems to show that it is near somewhere called Mereclough which seems to be nearer to Burnley than Colne.

I must admit that I haven't managed to get as far back as any siblings to John yet, but hopefully you've found me a connection?

Hi,

Castle is definitely the correct area.  Try Castle Road on a modern map.  The postcode is BB8 7AE if its any help.  It is just NW of Laneshawbridge and just below Colne Golf course.  I can only find Law Hill which is marked just to the right of the end of Castle Road, but it does show Law House marked on the old 1848 maps.

If you can`t find it let me know.

Regards,
Mo

Hooray I've found it!! :)

Now to find Stubbing and Scartop?  Yorkshire I think so I might make a new posting there if I can't find them.

Cheers

Thanks again.  The jigsaw is staring to fit at last as I can see a trail followed looking at the points on the map.
