Bowers Genealogy & History

Bowers is an ancient Scottish name of uncertain origin. It is likely derived from Old English "bowyer",meaning bow-maker, but it might be locational, referring to towns in Essex and Somerset, or locational/occupational and derived from Old English "bur", meaning cottage. Variations Bouer and Labur are found in 12th-century Bower family history in Herefordshire and Surrey in England, while in Wales the history dates back to a family seat (feudal home) in Peeblesshire. American Bowers genealogy begins with emigrants to Virginia in 1637. The family motto, "ad metam", means "to the mark". The coat of arms is a green shield with two bows between three sheaves of arrows.
