Bowman Genealogy & History

Bowman is an ancient occupational English name, derived from the Saxon "boga", meaning bow, and "-man", meaning man, describing someone skilled in making as well as operating a bow. In medieval times, a bowman was an esteemed and valuable occupation; the king's bodyguards were professional bowmen. Variations include Boeman, Boman and Boyman. In Bowman family history, the family held a seat (feudal manor) in Northumberland and lands in Westmorland. In American Bowman genealogy, the first emigrant was to Massachusetts in the 1620s. The Bowman motto, "numine et arcu", means "the bow by God's providence". There are several coats of arms, most with bows.
