The Bowles of Canada and their Roots in Ireland and England

The Bowles Families in Canada

Welcome to my Web site!

My Story, Why I made a web site specifically about the Bowles (Boles, Bolles, Boals etc.) in Canada, Ireland and England.

My Bowles Family, my particular Bowles family tree plus what I've been able to learn about their lives including many connections to Bowles in other parts of Canada.

Bowles in Canada, this is a province by province and county by county (or municipality) collection of miscellaneous Bowles information which I have collected.

Bowles in Ireland, an Irish county by county collection of Bowles references with particular stress on any which may connect to Canadian descendants.

Bowles in England, many of the Bowles in Canada emigrated directly from England and most, but possibly not all, of the Bowles in Ireland originated in England.  This section tries to sort out some possible linkages.

Bowles in the US, this is not an attempt to document all the Bowles lines in the US just the ones that are connected to Bowles lines in Canada

Origin of the Name, presents the theory which I like about the origin of the Bowles name as well as some other possibilities.

People's Lives, my views on accepting what you find when you research your family's history
