I have a long line of Bowdens living in Marylebone and the surrounding area all through the 19th and early 20th centuries, but not a direct link to those that you mentioned that I can find. Whereabouts in Marylebone did your family live? I'm sure there will be a connection somewhere!
Hi Jane, Apologies for the delay in replying, the email saying there was a message on My heritage.com went into my spam folder and I found it just by accident.
My great-grandfather William John Bowden, immigrated to New Zealand from Marylebone,England, at age 18yrs. he was the oldest child of the siblings.
His father Edward, (originally from Cheshire) had a Coffee House at 15 South Street South (now renamed Blandford Street) in Marylebone, it is now a well know Indian Restaurant today called "Trishna". The family lived above the restaurant.
His mother was Elizabeth Bowden, nee Wright. What Bowden branch are you descended from ? Have you visited the graveyard at Marylebone Church, ? ? I understand some of the bodies were relocated else where, I have no idea where the other family members are buried except Edward Snr who went to live with his daughter Margaret Robinson (nee Bowden) in Willisden, Middlesex. Be great great to hear back from you, can you reply to email@example.com directly please. Best wishes, John (John Bowden)
PS : I live in Akaroa, New Zealand, on Banks Peninsula maybe your husband was a descendant of Joseph Banks (Botanist) on Captain Cooks, ship Endeavour.
