family history
My Cowie Ancestors

The earlier family history of my Cowie ancestors below is somewhat speculative. My great-grandmother Barbara's birth, and that of most of her siblings, is clearly recorded in the registers of the Catholic Apostolic Church in Westminster, where they were baptised by Edward Irving, the Church's founder, who had left his ministry at the Church of Scotland's London church after developing a new theological vision (I think). The oldest children were baptised in that Church of Scotland parish. However, Barbara had an older brother or half-brother Alexander, whose wife was the sister to the man who eventually married Barbara; and there is another David Cowie (the same name as Barbara's father), also a shoemaker in London, who might have been another brother or half-brother. While I can find a marriage that might be that of Barbara's parents, it is clearly too late to be that of Alexander's parents; but there is no trace of an earlier marriage or of Alexander's birth.
