Hello, my name is Trevor Bowe I'm 85% Irish my 3rd great grandfather Richard Bowe migrated during the Great Famine in 1820's and settled into Jordan, New York. I'm trying to find relatives in Ireland and more of the Bowe's family history.

Hi Trevor

In the ideal world a source at your end can identify a county or, even better still, a parish of origin in Ireland of your Bowe ancestors.

The surname search option in Irish Ancestors website, johngrenham.com, is a great way to identify where in Ireland the surname Bowe is to found.

Rootsireland.ie website records the birth details of 38 Richard Bowes in Ireland between 1754 and 1903 with 8 of these born before 1830 (4 in County Kilkenny, and 1 each in counties Carlow, Monaghan, Tipperary and Waterford).

All I have from Ancestry is Liverpool. That's where he departed. It shows he departed when he was 30.

Update: I've found it Rossenarra Demesne Kilmaganny

Thank you so much for jumping in and helping Trevor out, Brian! 

As Brian said, finding your ancestors' location before they left for the US could be a huge help. According to the johngrenham.com website, the Bowe surname was common in county Kilkenny.

Another option would be to look at ship records. The county of origin of your ancestor may be in here. Here are some more genealogy resources to help you with.

Edit : I just saw that you found a location, that's amazing! Let us know how your search goes. :) 

Best of luck!

As Rossenarra House and Demesne, near village of Kilmoganny is located in civil parish of Kilmaganny, County Kilkenny this means that you should focus your initial research on the parish of Kilmaganny, see John Grenham's map  at
