I was happy to hear we do have the same connection. My husband's line is through Joseph Bowes of Evenwood (wouldn't it be nice to know his wife's name?!)through their son Henry, the 6th of their 13 children, who marrried Elizabeth Pattern Bunney, through their son John who married Mary Hence etc, etc. Have you gone further back than Joseph? Our line came to Australia in 1913.
Would like to hear more from you and I am willing to share.
