Bowles at Parkhurst, Beckenham, Kent
Have finally traced down an ancestor, Joseph Bowles, who was a pharmacist in Quebec City in the 1870's. Found the family in the 1881 British Census living at Parkhurst, Beckenham, Kent. He is now 63, not employed but has a domestic and a cook so is probably retired to Britain. I am trying to find out anything about what may have happened to them after that (deaths, marriages of his two daughters etc.) about Parkhurst, and generally why Kent? Were there other family connections which may have taken them from Canada back to England (he was born Ireland)? They is some family connection to Kent as I found a reference that their niece, Mrs. Joseph Bowles Learmont, donated the former home of General Wolfe in Westerham, Kent, "Quebec House", to the National Trust. I would also be very interested if someone could explain the Bowles family connection to Quebec House.
