  1. Hi again, Anthony. I was responding to the lineage above, itself. If you look at 1 B c. (1) (A) vii, above, it says + other issue, Henry (b. 1795) to America. My comment was regarding what happened to Henry. He married and had 3 daughters and died in 1871. We have some letters between him and his older brother William from 1852 – 1857, census reports from 1850 & 1870 and a copy of his death certificate. Hope this clarifies my comment.

  2. If you look at the tree above and find 1, B, c. (1) (A) vii, it says + other issue, Henry (b. 1795) to America. This Henry was the one I was providing the information about. He was my 3rd gg, his daughter Catherine married George Crolius, they had a son George, he had a daughter Phoebe, my grandmother. I don’t have a link showing this, except for what is on my tree. I have been sharing information with some 2nd cousins and we have found some family letters, between Henry and his brother William in which he mentions at least one daughter’s last name. Otherwise we have his death certificate, the 1850 & 1870 census reports, etc. Good to hear from you.

  3. Hi Janet, I believe I am not the person you were responding to, but I am intrigued by the info you provided. Can you send me a link to the information you are referring to so I may look at it myself? Thanks!

  4. Hi, I have recently found this site and wow what a wealth of Lowndes information. I have maternal Salopian roots. My 5th great grandmother married into the Withington family from Shifnal. I believe that her family were from Rocester Staffordshire. I do not know if this family link back to the Overton Lowndes and I wondered if anyone could help please?
    Best wishes Sue

  5. Hi Anthony,
    I responded 3 years ago, saying “I am the 3rd great granddaughter of Henry Owen Lowndes (1795 – 1871) who went to America. He married Sarah Ann Trumball and had 3 daughters, Elizabeth, Mary, and Catherine.” What may not have been clear is that Henry was the son of William Lowndes and Elizabeth Garth. Your tree shows they had 6 children, but my research found 8, including your 6 and Henry & Clara (who died young). I am also directly related to Clara (?-1773), the daughter of William (1652 – 1724) and possibly Rebecca Shales, and wife of Peter Leheup, whom you have as “possibly of this generation.” This connection ties in because Clara’s granddaughter, Elizabeth Garth (1757-1837) married the grandson of William (1688-1775) and Margaret Layton, William Lowndes Stone Norton (1750 – 1830), meaning they were 2nd cousins, although the grandparents were only 1/2 brother/sister, so I’m not sure if there 1/2 2nd cousins!
    Anyway, hope this makes sense to you, if not please ask.

  6. JENNIFER: just saw and realized that your post immediately followed my own. Please contact me at your leisure, my info is in the last post.

  7. Anthony Lowndes checking in again. Its been six years since the first time I posted on this site. Sadly not a single person has responded to any of my posts. I am extremely interested in finding more of my expansive family, any new contacts would be greatly cherished. My email address is which is also my primary telephone number. Looking forward to hearing from you… BTW I recently was introduced to the Lowder family Crest which I have been told is the crest of the Lowndes. I have images of this crest if it is needed!

  15. I am trying to establish how an Elizabeth Lowndes (b. abt 1746) fits in to the Lowndes family. She married Thomas Jephson Esq. of the parish of St. Giles, Camberwell, on 21 Dec 1767. Both were 21 at the time. She is also referred to as being of that parish.

  16. I am trying to trace the connection between the Loundes and the Skellhorne family. We have found a record of a Parnell Loundes marries a Richard Skellhorne in about 1580. However we can not find out which branch of the Loundes family she belonged to, we think she belongs to the Odd Rode branch. Can anyone confirm this?



  17. I am a lowndes trying to do some research on my family history to find my birth father, can you help? my telephone # is 786-315-8610. thanks!

  18. Found this very interesting. I have recently been doing some research for a friend, Arthur B Lownes & his 3 daughters.

    I beleive that I have his line, strting in Overton, Astbury Cheshire back to 1138…much further back than I have managedd to trace by birth name!
    Regards Joan
