Robert Bowness, his wife Ellizabeth Farries, children and Elizabeth's first cousin Mary Kellock emigrated to PEI about 1827. Elizabeth apparently died enroute and Robert married Mary Kellock sometime later. They settled in Norboro, PEI. Since we have some information about other branches of this family in Australia, this tree starts a few generation back in England with Robert's Grandfather John Bowness.
- Descendants of John Bowness , of Witehaven, Cumberland, England, grandfather of Robert Bowness of Prince Edward Island.
- Jenny Gibson of Queensland Australia, has sent me some information about her descendancy from William Bowness
