In Reply to: Dowley family by Carole Welch of 45

I've got some info on some London DOWLEYs. Likely to be unconnected if you are tracing your line back to Warwickshire etc.

Sarah Hawes NICHOLSON 1778-1817 married Thomas DOWLEY (by whom 8 children).
This Sarah's younger sister (Harriet) married Thomas DOWLEY's brother James:

Harriet NICHOLSON 1785-1867 married James DOWLEY (by whom 9 children)
(mostly Deptford and Southwark areas)


I'd love to know about any DOWELEY details you find. At the very least it will help me in eliminating other possible suspects around England.


I also wonder if there is any connection between the 1840 marraige info you are after and this death certificste entry I found in FreeBMD recently:

March quarter of 1892 - death of John DOWLEY aged 89 - Pershore district (GRO ref: 6c 292)

This man is probably the one in the 1881 census listed as follows:
John DOWLEY
Age 80, born c. 1801 Warrington, Worcestershire;
Licensed Pedlar;
Widowed;
Lodging at the Court Coventry Arms Inn, Upton Snodsbury, Worcestershire
Census ref: RG11 2931 / 30
