These are our Fowlie's from Aberdeenshire. Our John Fowlie who was born on 10th April 1772 is one of two John Fowlie's born that year. We confirmed this as the correct one by comparing the two John Fowlie's ages in the censuses.
Our John Fowlie farmed Broomhill; his son John farmed Cranhill, this farm is still remembered by the older members of the family.
There is a Fowlie study going on to determine the origins of the Fowlie families in Aberdeenshire, and to pool resources and try to establish links between the various families. Please get in touch if you have Fowlie's in your tree, I am interested in all Fowlie families, although the family tree listed below is our direct line only.
