Hugh Ashworth Stowell(162) was the eldest child of Canon Hugh Stowell(70) and Anne Susannah Ashworth(71). He was born on 27 Sep 1829, while his father was still the Vicar of St. Stephen's, Salford, and Hugh Ashworth was baptised at that church on 16 Nov 1829, probably by his father. According to the Alumni Oxoniensis 1715-1886, he matriculated at Brasenose College, Oxford, on 22 Jun 1848, aged 18, and was a scholar 1848-52. He took his BA in 1852 and his MA in 1855. He took holy orders, and was appointed perpetual curate of Christ Church, The Dhoon, Maughold, in the Isle of Man on 28 Aug 1858, where he stayed until 1863. From 1863 to 1865 he was perpetual curate of Warslow and Elkstone, Staffordshire, and then rector of Breadsall, in Derbyshire, from 1865 until his death on 16 Mar 1886.
On 13 Jan 1859 he married Annie Isabella La Mothe(903) (1835-1889) at Maughold, Isle of Man. There is a large section on the La Mothe family available on the web as part of the Manx Notebook website, and I have drawn on this, as well as on the pedigree chart B-S829 drawn up by John Arthur Stowell, for the sections which follow. Hugh and Anne had three sons.
