Portrait of William Bowdoin, 1748 - Bowdoin College Museum
Artist: Feke, Robert (American, approx. 1710-1750)
I first assumed this to be William, son of John Bowdoin
and Elizabeth Folsom. John was the son of Jean/John Bowdoin who was
the son of Pierre. The dates fit. But then I realized it could be
William, son of James Bowdoin and Susanna/Sarah Campbell. James was
the son of Pierre. These dates also fit. More research to be done to
find out just who this William Bowdoin is.
James Bowdoin, Born 8 August 1727 in Boston,
Son of James who was the son of Pierre. Birth date as
per the National Cyclopaedia of American Biography, 1967
James Bowdoin, Born 7 August 1726 in Boston
Son of James who was the son of Pierre.
Birth date is per the Encyclopedia Britannica.
