Bower Genealogy & History

Bower comes to us as a topical name in pre-seventh-century Old English from bur, meaning a cottage or room. The last syllable was added to denote someone who dwelled at that place. In ancient Scotland, the name meant someone who was a bow maker. The family seat is in Bower. To the mark is the family motto. Bower family history gives us Teodricus Bouer in the Pipe Rolls of Herefordshire as the first recorded spelling, in 1187. Noteworthy Bower genealogy members are cognitive psychologist Gordon H. Bower, deaf Welsh actor David Bower, Scottish chronicler Walter Bower, and hockey goaltender Johnny Bower.
