Bowers from Kilkenny Ireland


I am researching my family tree and I am looking to fill out the information I have on my mother's side of the family (Bowers) I have a fairly extensive bowers family tree going back to about 1649 but very little information apart from names and where they lived. In summary I have (ordered by generation)

Sir Edward Hardman Bowers (1854 - 1914) m.Margaret Elizabeth Jones
George Bowers (d 8 Aug 1865) Kilkenny, Ireland m. Elizabeth Lucy Hardman
Edward Bowers (d 1878) Oldcourt, Co. Kilkenny m. Penelope Deacon
Thomas Tongue Bowers
Edward Bowers
Thomas Bowers (d 1760)
Maunsell Bowers (d 1763)
Thomas Bowers
Thomas Bowers (Came to Ireland from Norfolk in 1649)

The source comes from an old family tree found in my mother's papers, I can trace the Hardman line back a thousand years but I can find very little to add to the Bowers data I already have. If anyone has any more information on this line I would love to hear from you. Likewise if I can help anyone else out I would be happy to do so.
