Hi

I am trying to find out more details about my granddad - Thomas Bowling. I think he was born in the IOM around 1889. He married an Annie MacDonald in 1915, in Liverpool - they had 6 daughters, (births ranging from 1915-1930) one - Elsie, died in infancy.

His father and mother were Thomas Bowling (b circa 1859), and Eunice (surname not known). Does anyone know any more? I don't know when he died, I think it was in the 1950's.

I don't think my "Bowlings" are connected with the Yorkshire Bowlings - unless they are cousins - Thomas, was son of Thomas (b around 1859), and his father was James I think...
