The Family of Alice Emma Wombwell and James William Bowles

Alice Emma Wombwell was born in 1854 in Tollesbury. She was a daughter of Charles Wombwell and Sarah Nichols. James William Bowles was the son of James Bowles and Sarah Chatterson and was born about 1850.

I assume they married in Tollesbury, since nearly all of their children were baptised there.

Two of their sons, James Wombwell Bowles and John Stanley Bowles, appear to have married Margaret Neylon; I will check to see if the first perhaps died shortly after he married. John Stanley went to Australia where he died in 1961.

Alice Emma died on Christmas Day in 1920 and is buried at Tollesbury. I do not know when James William died.

Yet another case for further research, it appears.
