Bowen Genealogy & History

Bowen is a patronymic Welsh and Irish name deriving either from the Welsh given name "Owain", from Greek "Eugenios", meaning noble, or from the Gaelic "O'Buadhachain", meaning victorious. Bowen family history dates back to long before the Norman Conquest in Pembrokeshire, where there was a family seat (feudal manor); in Ireland, the family lived in Cork. American Bowen genealogy notes that immigrants came to Virginia and Boston in 1638. The Bowen motto, "esse quam videri", means "to be rather than to seem". The Bowen coat of arms is a black shield with three gold sheafs of wheat, which symbolize generosity and plenty.
