REV. ARTHUR KNIGHT STOWELL (1854-1932) AND HIS DESCENDANTS

Rev Arthur Knight Stowell

Arthur Knight Stowell(651) was, according to the pedigree chart D-S800 drawn up by J. A. Stowell in 1998, born at Ware, Hertfordshire, on 30 Aug 1854. He was the third child of the Rev. William Stowell(637) and his wife Mary Elizabeth Cowen(638). The GRO births index shows that he was registered at Ware (vol.3a, p.155) in the December quarter of 1854. In the 1861 UK census he is living with his parents in the Minister's House at Maulden, a village in Bedfordshire. His age is 6 and he is a schoolboy. He became a Congregational Minister, but I do not know where he received his theological education.

He married Elizabeth Ann Finlinson(930) at Luton, Bedfordshire, in 1881 (GRO marriages index, Luton, vo.3b, p.725). She was born in 1852 (GRO births index for the December quarter, Poplar, vol.1c, p.546). They had five children.
