I am trying to find out what happened to a brother of my great grandmother,
Sarah BOWLES, namely
Oliver BOWLES, born Long Sutton, Somerset, January 1845, son of William
BOWLES (1810-1857), carpenter and mechanic of Castle Cary, and Thirza Ann
The family broke up after the parents died. In 1861, Oliver was living as a
boarder with his sister Sarah and her HAMBLYN family in Castle Cary.
In March 1866 he married Charlotte LANGTREE at Castle Cary.
After that I have not found him and he may have emigrated.
Another brother, Daniel (1838), joined the armed forces, and settled in
Tavistock, Devon. I am also tracing two sisters, Mary (1833) and Ann (1841).
If any of these names ring bells I would be interested to hear.
