Alfred BOWLAND (1883?-1981)

Alfred BOWLAND,1 son of George BOLAND (1848-1923) and Janet Ellen GEGG (Snr) (1852-1926), was born in 1883 (approx.) at the BDM District in Braidwood, NSW.2 He was baptised in 1883 in an unidentified place or church.

Alfred and Violet had 11 children.3

Alfred died (aged 98) in 1981 in a place still to be found.4

 

BOLAND, BOWLAND and in some sources BOLLAND are different spellings of the family name.

 

Researcher Helen SUTTON talks about the relationship between her grandfather, Jim BOWLAND and his brother Alf BOWLAND. "...... Alfred, whom I remember quite well. James and Alf were friends as well as brothers and used to visit each other regularly. Alf lived in Burwood which was the next suburb to Enfield where James lived for most of his adult life. We called them real 'bushies' and I can remember a tale of Alf keeping a cow and calf somewhere near his home. In suburban Sydney in the 1950s this must have been quite unusual.

.... Alf's youngest daughter Norma had a small car and used to bring Alf (and her little daughter) to visit Jim".5
