My family tree

Finally, after 12 years of the Lowndes web site, it has happened. A distant relative, Bob Lowndes in my father’s home town of Wrexham, contacted me via the site. He has helped me hugely to extend my family tree, which I now keep up to date on Genesreunted, with a copy on Ancestry.com. The Genersreunited tree has started collecting links, and it looks like I’ll continue to make progress. The latest simple view of the tree is here. Thanks Bob!

    Hi there

    I’ve just found this site, having started some family research this week. I wondered if your William Lowndes, born 1805 was the brother of Peter Lowndes born around 1806? Peter worked as a tailor and draper in Salford. He had a son, Alfred, born 1836, who also worked as a tailor and woollen draper. Alfred had around 8 children, among them Alfred Barry born 1862. He married into the Brodie family, cotton manufacturers in Manchester, and they had a son, Douglas Brodie, father to my mother, Unity BarryLowndes. The Lowndes line in our family ended when she died in 2005.
