Just woke up to see this amazing post!! We are both hunting the same John Bowness Senior and son John Allanby Bowness!!!! Junior's brother was William I believe who moved to Scotland and I have stayed in that home!! Too hard to type on this wee tablet so will write later. John Allanby Bowness died in1824 and was married to Agnes Cleasby and in his Will he left her the home in Raisbeck!! He also left a huge amount of money to a Reverend George Bowness in Orton!!! This chance meeting is just incredible!! We each have intertwining opposite sides of this family and I will print it out and the two of us can untangle it!! Fantastic, to say the least! My father would be so thrilled to see this!! Will talk to you later, Paula!
