Shrewsbury line

This line of Bowdlers comes directly from the Bowdler of Harlescott and Shrewsbury pedigree recorded in the Heralds Visitation of Shropshire 1623, linking to William Bowdler of Shrewsbury.

The descendants of the main line includes John C H Bowdler of Bowdlers Solicitors which became the current FBC Manby Bowdler.

There are two further family groups which are from Shrewsbury but not positively linked to this main group yet. One of these leads to Cyril Bowdler Henry.
