Lowndes Roll

The Lowndes Roll is now online for your perusal at

http://www.mikelowndes.net/lowndes-roll/

Archive number D\LO\5\12 .  The Pedigree was comissioned/created by a member of the Selby-Lowndes family in 1862 and bought by the Archive in 1957. The Lowndes archive is catalogued in the National Archives, here

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a2a/records.aspx?cat=008-lowndes&cid=5-8#5-8

You will quickly see that it is far from finished. Though the main lines are present, many details are noted in pencil and some colouring remains incomplete.

The Pedigree and other things in the Ayelsbury archive relate to the Chesham branch of the family who arrived c.16th. It also concerns the Winslow branch of the family, and subsequently Lowndes-Stone of Brightwell Park, Oxfordshire. There’s plenty more in the archive I may return to, including a collection of C18th recipies, and documents recording the building of the Lowndes estate in Knightsbridge, London – by Thomas Cubitt (1788-1855), when this was a ‘green field’ area.

Lowndes pedigree

Finally on my way to Aylesbry Record Centre today, hopefully to photograph the Lowndes Family Roll:

  • Pedigree of the Lowndes family, 1066-1862.  D-LO/5/12 1066-1862

May take me some time to get it on the site, though!

The raw image files will be quite large (8MP camera), so if anyone would like to donate some online  disk space, please let me know.

Cheshire Lowndes – from Robert Leigh

The names that appear in my Lowndes family tree are
Randle Lowndes also spelt Lounds who died in Moulton, Cheshire in 1704, his son
Roger Lowndes also spelt Lounds who died in Moulton, Cheshire in 1712 and
Thomas Lowndes spelt Lownds who died in 1686 in Moulton, Cheshire who is the father of Randle Lowndes and grandfather of Roger Lowndes.
I know that certain christian names in families are passed down from generation to generation because i have seen Randle, Roger and Thomas mentioned in the Lowndes of Overton family and wondered if my Lowndes family branch could be connected, I know from their Wills that they were classed as Yeoman.
Catherine Lowndes daughter of Richard Lowndes (spelt Lounds) married Samuel Fluitt in 1698 in Frodsham, Cheshire and when Samuel Fluitt died in 1718 he is classed as a Gentleman in his will so must have been doing well.
I wondered if you have come across these Lowndes family members in your research who lived in the Moulton and Davenham areas of Cheshire.
Below is my direct family tree to the Lowndes family:
10 x great Grandfather Thomas Lowndes died 1686 Moulton, Cheshire
9 x great Grandfather Randle Lowndes died 1704 Moulton, Cheshire
8 x great Grandmother Catherine Lowndes (her christening should be recorded at St Wilfred Church, Davenham, which was the main church for Moulton) married Samuel Fluitt
7 x great Grandfather Randle Fluitt ch 1699 Frodsham, Cheshire married Ann Fulwood
6 x great Grandmother Ann Fluitt ch 1726 Frodsham, Cheshire married John Earl
5 x great Grandmother Catherine Fluitt Earl ch 1759 Frodsham, Cheshire married Thomas Pownall
4 x great Grandmother Maria Pownall ch 1788 Manchester, Lancashire married William Gough
3 x great Grandmother Maria Gough ch 1830 Stockport, Cheshire married James Dean
2 x great Grandmother Elizabeth Dean born 1852 Stockport, Cheshire married James Whittaker
Great Grandmother Sarah Ellen Whittaker born 1873 Stockport, Cheshire married Joseph Leigh
Grandfather James Leigh born 1909 Stockport, Cheshire married Ann Howard
Father James Leigh born 1930 Stockport, Cheshire married Joyce Wallace

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!
