This Douglas would also be Horace's nephew. Seems to coincidental. If this is my Horace, I would be his Great-Niece.

Mary "Ann" Bowles1,2,3,4

F, #653, b. 1817, d. 28 July 1887
  • Birth*: 1817; Ireland; The 1851 census has her listed as 5 years younger than Robert, but the 1861 and the 1871 census list them as the same age.5,6
  • Marriage*: before December 1845; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Ann's surname is found in only two places (so far) but it is different in each case. In James's Death Registration, it is Bowles. In George's Marriage Registration it is Butler. This needs to be researched.
    Note: St. Paul's Anglican Church in Brighton was destroyed by fire in 1914 which may have destroyed the record of Robert and Anne's marriage. They were Church of England.
    "St. Paul's Anglican Church, 48 Sanford Street: St. Paul's Anglican Church was established in 1862 but traces of the Anglican Community date back to 1836. ... Prior to the erection of St. Paul's, services were held in the Old Presbyterian Church on Young Street. Following a fire in 1914, which destroyed early records of the church, electricity was installed and a Choir Vestry was added." (from "A History of Brighton - Churches" on the web page of The Independent, East Northumberland's Weekly Newspaper); Principal=Robert Buchanan7,6
  • Death*: 28 July 1887; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Death Reg'n #011951: Name: Ann Buchanan; Died: July 28 1887; Age: 73 years; Rank: Wife of Robert Buchanan; Born: Ireland; Cause: summer complaint, 2 weeks; Phys.: Dr. Sanford; Certified: James Buchanan, Brighton Twp; Reg'd: July 30, 1887; Rel.: Church of England; Reg'r: A. A. Brecker
    Note: It appears that Ann was living in Brighton Twp. with James at the time of her death. James is listed as the witness; he lived on the north side of Brighton Village. The cause of death was "summer complaint" - not sure what tha means. One minor discrepancy is that her age is listed as 73 years.8
  • Burial*: 30 July 1887; Ontario; No burial info re Ann has been found. It might be expected that she was buried in the Norwood-Asphodel Cemetery with her husband Robert. There is no memorial for her there or in Brighton where James is buried.
  • Name Variation: before December 1845; Buchanan7,6
  • Note: 1848; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; British Colonist of Toronto (1840-1848) shows these words at the end of a marriage notice: "... youngest daughter of Joseph Bowles, Brighton (Rev. Thomas Buchanan)
    Note: If it is the same family this girl could be Ann's younger sister. Need to establish a connection.
  • Census: 1852; Ameliasburgh Twp., Prince Edward Co., Ontario; Age 30 at 1851-2 Census: see Robert Buchanan9
  • Note*: circa 1854; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Christian Guardian shows a marriage record (1851 - 1854): On Tues evening 15 inst. at the residence of the bride's father, Christopher G. Valleau and Jane Ann, eldest daughter of John Bowles, all of Brighton (Rev. W. S. Blackstock
    Note: This may be same family as Ann but later generation - ie, her niece.
  • Note: 1857; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; 1857 Directory of Ontario shows Bowles, W & J, Brighton, shoemakers
    Note: Is this Ann's family?? It might explain why John's birth shows as Brighton before they were in Ameliasburgh. Needs to be proven.
  • Census: April 1861; Ameliasburgh Twp., Prince Edward Co., Ontario; Age 42 at 1861 Census: see Robert Buchanan10
  • Census: April 1871; Asphodel Twp., Peterborough Co., Ontario; Age 54 at 1871 Census: see Robert Buchanan11
  • Census*: April 1881; Percy Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 67 at 1881 Census: see George Buchanan. She appears in the 1881 census living with George on a farm in Percy Tsp. They appear to have lived here since 1877 because on his marriage registration in 1877 James lists his occupation as a farmer in Percy Tsp. It would also appear that Robert is dead at this point.12

Family: Robert Buchanan b. 1817, d. 3 May 1871

  • Marriage*: before December 1845; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Ann's surname is found in only two places (so far) but it is different in each case. In James's Death Registration, it is Bowles. In George's Marriage Registration it is Butler. This needs to be researched.
    Note: St. Paul's Anglican Church in Brighton was destroyed by fire in 1914 which may have destroyed the record of Robert and Anne's marriage. They were Church of England.
    "St. Paul's Anglican Church, 48 Sanford Street: St. Paul's Anglican Church was established in 1862 but traces of the Anglican Community date back to 1836. ... Prior to the erection of St. Paul's, services were held in the Old Presbyterian Church on Young Street. Following a fire in 1914, which destroyed early records of the church, electricity was installed and a Choir Vestry was added."
