  • Notes 
    • MICHAEL BOWYER was born at Betchworth on 24th August, 1795. He lived at Wonham Mill near Reigate and married at St. Mary's Church, Battersea, Surrey, Sarah, daughter of Joseph Till on 9th April, 1824. He was a miller.

      He had five sons, Michael, William (Miller), Frederick-Joseph (Miller), Henry Downs (Miller), Edward and Sarah.

      Michael, the eldest, was killed by his own shot gun when he pulled it behind him through a hedge at the age of 22.

      In 1832 on Saturday, 4th August, Michael attended a Dinner given for 1,200 persons in the Castle Court, Reigate, to celebrate the passing of the Reform Bills. I have a list of the subscribers of which Michael contributed 15/-. The Rt. Hon. Lord Somers, the Rt. Hon. Viscount Templetown contributed £10 each. The total cost was £82.14.6.

      Michael Bowyer died and was buried at Betchworth, 26th July, 1865.

      I hold Michael's Family Bible, New Testament by the Reverend Samuel Smith, D.C., Printed London by H. Owen at the Britannic Printing Office, White Friars, Fleet Street and dated MDCCLVI (1756). Entered are the dates of birth of his six children.
