There are two distinct lines of Bowdlers from Kimbolton, Herefordshire which can be traced from the 18th century to the present day.
The first line starts with Elizabeth Bowdler (born around 1720) and her son Amos Bowdler (born 1746). I have contacted descendants from this line in Australia, Wiltshire, Lancashire, Wales, Leicester and Birmingham.
The second line starts with William Bowdler (born about 1737). I have contacted descendants from this line around the UK.
Notable family line members include footballer Lonzo Bowdler.
