Peter Butler Bowrin

No Dates


Peter Bowrin claimed as tenant-for life for the compensation for the enslaved people on Bowrin's estate in Nevis; and G.[sic] B. Bowrin wrote to the Compensation Commissioners from Portsmouth about the award for Windmill, also on Nevis. LBS has concluded that both were the same man, Peter Butler Bowrin, son of William Bowrin. Although Peter Butler Bowrin was in England in the early 1830s, nothing subsequently has been traced of him to date.

  1. In 1831, Peter Butler Bowrin was apprenticed to the lawyer Daniel Howard of Portsea for 5 years, when Peter Butler Bowrin's father was described as William Bowrin deceased late of Avranches France.
