The Family Tree

Henry Bowers
1812-1847

The parents of Henry Bowers currently remains a mystery but the earliest record of him is in 1832 where, at Wicken Church, he married Ann Bailey, also of Wicken.

The couple went on to have at least eight children and they appear on the 1841 census as living at Northup Corner, Wicken with six of their children. Just six years later in 1847, Henry had died of "consumption", otherwise known as the deadly tuberculosis (or TB).

His widow, Ann, remarried to Jackson Layton, a widower of Burwell and the couple had further children whilst living at Guinea Hall. Henry pre-deceased his wife by 50 years.
