George Bowles and Mary Tyler
my honorary 4 x gt grandparents

George, son of Richard and Ann Bowles, was baptized at Marden in 1766.

Mary was born in Linton to John and Mary Tyler but baptized at Boughton Monchelsea in 1779, and probably spent much of her childhood in East Farleigh.

They were married at East Farleigh in December 1798, but lived in Chart Sutton, and then Boughton Monchelsea.

View of the River Medway at East Farleigh as George and Mary would have known it
with the church in the background.

In 1841 seventy five year old George was a labourer,
but I have a copy of a newspaper article about his grandson James, a blacksmith, which says that James'
father and grandfather before him were also smiths.
