Bowles Genealogy & History

Bowles is a surname from the English as a form of Bowler, an occupational name for a maker of pots, basins, and such. In the Seine Maritime region of France, the name Bouelles appears, from the Old French Boelle meaning a paddock. The Welsh Howell plus the prefix for son of gives us some alternate spellings like Bowell, Powles, and Bolle. Bowles family history has John de Boweles as the first recording of the name in 1293 in the Fines Court Records of Huntingdonshire. Noteworthy Bowles genealogy members are lawyer and soldier Pinckney Downie Bowles, writer and playwright Jane Bowles, and horticulturalist and writer Edward Augustus Bowles.
