William McGOWAN and Mary DOUGHERTY are recorded in the 1841 census living in Bogles Land, Barony Bridgeton (Glasgow), Lanarkshire, Scotland. After the birth of Elizabeth they moved to Ireland where sons James and Thomas were born. No records so far record more specific than Ireland for their place of birth.

By 1861 the family were living in Manchester but without John and Charles. In 1871 they also have a granddaughter with them, Margaret, for whom I cannot find a birth record.

William and Mary move to Dukinfield, Cheshire before 1881 and daughters Mary and Elizabeth live with them at times indicating neither married.

I only have further details of William.

William McGowan moved to Tamworth, Staffordshire and was a Teacher and later a Miller's Commercial Clerk. In 1872 he married Elizabeth DEACON (sometimes recorded with her step-father's surname of TODD). William died in 1887, and Elizabeth about the same time, resulting in the younger children going to the workhouse as orphans. When daughter Margaret married in 1903 she recorded her deceased father's occupation as Musician, and Mary in 1907 as Music Teacher.

The Herald, Saturday, August 27, 1887
Tamworth, Staffordshire, England, Tamworth Board of Guardians.
An Expensive Family.—The case of the McGowan family occupied the attention of the Board, and the course some remarksth* deputy clerk incidentally mentioned that it had been stated that this family would cost the Union £1,000 before they were done with. The Chairman : So much as that? The Relieving Officer : afraid they will cost quite that much. The Relieving Officer further laid before the Board his arrangements, shewing that homes had been obtained for nine of the children, the tenth being still the house he said it had weak eyes, and doubted whether the Medical Officer would grant a certificate for it to leave. that case it must remain- Father Norris had expressed his approval of the homes which had been selected. The Chairman said it was very satisfactory that the matter had been so well arranged".

The children have been difficult to trace as they dispersed to adoption, workhouses and service. I only have details of Margaret, Maria, Mary and Thomas, although James (Jim) was a witness at Margaret's wedding to Elias.

Winifred McGOWAN

Winifred possibly became a nun. No records found so far.

This family is no relation but they have been researched as I once believed they were. They lived in the Manchester and Bolton areas.

I believe John has a brother Owen as they were both in lodgings together in Manchester in 1851.

Margaret and Sarah are twins.
