The Mowat Family of Northumberland, & around the world Updated July 26, 2009
About Our Family Research
I am married to William Magnus Mowat who was born in Dannhauser, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. His father was John Moore Mowat, born in Earsdon, Tyneside, Northumberland, his father was William Magnus Mowat son of Thomas Mowat born 1830 in Millburnor Millbourne Place, North Shields. His father was John Mowat who married Rebecca Welch on 2 Febraury 1829, John Mowat's occupation on his childrens (3), baptism certificates as 'mariner' on the baptism certificate of his 3rd child Mary Ann under father's name it said John(dec?), in other words it looks like he died before she was baptised. In subsequent census Rebecca is reported as a widow. However I can find no trace of John's birth or death, if anybody can help I would be pleased.
