The Lowths

Page 5

As with page 4 of my Lowth family tree, pretty much all of the information shown on the tree below is the result of Mel Lowth's careful research. Mel has since sadly passed away but I shall be forever in his debt for his kindness and help.

Henry Lowth was born in 1834 in Carlton Scroop, Lincolnshire, where he seems to have spent much of his life. He first married Martha Ghent and had 2 children before poor Martha passed away aged only 22. He then married Ann Coddington there in 1857 and together they had at least 8 children there between 1859 and 1871. Their last child Rose Anna Lowth was born in nearby Fulbeck in 1874. The family must have then moved to the Newark area of Nottinghamshire which is quite close to the Lincolnshire border. Ann died there in 1876 and Henry must have returned to Lincolnshire at some point as he married the widowed Eliza Dring in Fulbeck in 1885. Henry & Eliza returned to Carlton Scroop and stayed at least until 1911 (by which point Henry was widowed again). Henry's death was registered in 1925 in the Newark district, as many of his children had remained in the Newark area, hopefully this means one of them had taken the old man in.

Henry & Ann's youngest son, William Frederick Lowth, emigrated to Australia sometime in the late 1880s/early 1890s. He married a Danish woman Nicoline Hansen in Queensland in 1892. They brought up a large family in the Mackay district of Queensland, the youngest of which was Carl Edward Lowth - Mel Lowth's father.

The family tree below summarises what I know about this branch of the Lowth family. It is hopefully reasonably accurate, but if you spot any errors, or any relatives, please feel free to E-mail me
