My BOWERS ancestors came from Cheshire and moved to Lancashire.
John BOWERS son of James BOWERS was born about 1819 in Stockport, Cheshire. He married Mary Ann SALE in 1838 in Cheshire (District of Cheadle). They moved to Lancashire and raised a family. Their daughter (my gr.grandmother) Mary Ann BOWERS was born 1852 in Worsley, Lancashire, England. She migrated with her husband Joseph ROYLE to Australia in 1883. I would like to hear from others interested in this BOWERS family.
